SNM059: 4 Deadly Mistakes New Authors Must Avoid

There are certain key mistakes that nearly every new author makes without even realizing it.  It can be so hard to be objective when looking at your books and books and campaigns.  Today we have special guest Derek Doepker to share with us some of the biggest mistakes that new authors simply MUST avoid…

On Today's show Derek covers some of the biggest questions that plague independent authors.

Derek's First Book was Not a Success

Like many new authors, Derek didn't hit a home run the first time he released a book.  When learning any new venture it's critical to expect to hit some walls.  Nobody succeeds without making any mistakes.  That's the pipe dream that everyone has.

My first book was an abysmal failure too.  But I learned from my mistakes, adapted and now that book is one of my best sellers.  It's very tempting to give up when we hit those frustrating moments where we really aren't sure just what we did wrong.

Listen to today's episode as Derek walks us through the key steps he uses to analyze a new book and ensure that it's a massive success.

As a special treat, he is giving away a FREE copy of his book “Why Authors Fail” to all of my listeners!

  1. I met Derek years ago at a seminar in LA and we became friends! Small world and great podcast. So cool to see how much he’s accomplished in the 5 years since we met.
