Iain asked a while back if I'd write a testimonial for his 'A-Z of Self-Publishing' website/tutorial/course. I said yes, if it was any good. So I did the course. It's good.
He's been around for the last ten years or so and he sells tons of books. As a hybrid author (tradition and self-published) it's proven useful - I make more than I did, put out my back catalogue as audiobooks, and learned how to format my self-published novels so everything looks like it should - like novels. It was worth the ride. He's one of very few who know the business well enough to teach it, and he's got a lovely singing voice.
I'm sorry. I'm trying to be serious so Iain can use something I say as a testimonial. I'm flippant, though. What you gonna do?
It is a great resource, though, and I'll just repeat that little bit at the top there - I make more in royalties since following the advice and knowledge Iain's worked hard to learn. I like writing more than the business side of things (as I'm sure you're well aware after a hundred or more blogs) but sometimes it's good to listen to someone who knows how to do both sides of this thing called 'being a writer'.
Here's the link and a nice picture of Iain.
