Straight from Hel shared a self-publishing story that should encourage us all, even though most self-published authors don’t have this kind of success. Brunonia Barry self-published her novel then landed a huge publishing contract. Her agent turned down the first seven-figure offer from a major company and held a three-day auction. The result: a contract for more than $2 million dollars from William Morrow!
Don’t start planning how to spend your two million dollars … but read everything this author did that led to her self-publishing success: everything recommended in the Self-Publishing Primer plus hiring a publicist that led to finding a distributor and getting a rave review in Publisher’s Weekly.
