What It Means to Be a Writer on a Budget

What It Means to Be a Writer on a Budget

To be a writer on a budget means you cannot afford to spend $500 on a self-publishing course whether you wanted to or not. It means you cannot afford to spend $400 per day on Facebook ads whether you wanted to or not. It means you cannot invest $700 in a giveaway whether you wanted to or not. It means you cannot hire someone to build you a website regardless of how great that would be. It means you are running on fumes.

But none of this means that it cannot be done. None of this means there aren't other, cheaper, free, and still efficient options available. There are, but you need to find them. Where others use heavy artillery, you have to use guerrilla tactics, Where others use money, you have to use diligence and wit.

I am a writer on a budget and I write for writers on a budget. I've been doing this for the last two years, and I'm now sharing everything I know with you so that you won't have to go through this with no help and guidance.

I'm doing this so that you won't have to bang your head against the wall in despair because you cannot afford to pay for that fancy course. You can get my 101 guide to book promotion for a less than a buck, and it was written for you, for a writer on a budget by a writer on a budget.

If there is one thing I learned, it's that people who have made it big tend to forget what it means to start from scratch. People who have made it big but had never had to do it on a budget have no understanding of what doing it on a budget even means, of what it means to run on fumes.

But I do know, and that's why I wrote this book - for everyone out there who knows how that feels like too, who struggles too. You can get this comprehensive introduction to book promotion for 99 cents, not for 500 dollars but for 99 CENTS. And it's worth a lot more than that because in it I share everything.

I share what took me years to learn. I share what I've learned from working 8 years in marketing, from going through an intensive startup course and winning two awards for my startup project, from self-publishing myself.

But I'm running on fumes because the events beyond my control destroyed my former career and almost led to bankruptcy. That's why I know exactly what self-publishing o a budget means. So if you too are doing it on a budget, this book is for you, written by someone who truly and really gets it.

You Self-Published, Now What? How to Promote Your Book is now available for preorder.
