    Coming June 13, 2023

    Starting out as an indie author can be daunting, especially if you don't have much money to invest in marketing. If you've published one or more books but are struggling to get sales, this is the book for you!

    In From Zero to Four Figures, I'll show you the strategy that helped me build an audience and grow my self-published fiction business to $1,000 a month within two years—and got me on my way to hitting the bestseller lists.

    Increasing your sales requires the right books, mindset, and marketing — many new authors lack one or more of these pillars. This book helps identify the gaps and mistakes that are holding you back.

    These guidelines are repeatable, proven, inexpensive, and attainable—and will help get your self-published fiction business off the ground.
