I can easily recall the scariest moment of my authoring career.
It was three weeks after my first solo book, Author Your Success, got the bestseller banner on Amazon.
I logged into KDP to check my royalties, and my heart sank.
I did some quick math, and realized that this book, that took me 10 months to write, publish and market, was going to yield about $20 a month in royalties (if I was lucky).
That was a depressing moment.
It was also a challenge. Was I a glass is half full or glass is half empty type of guy? Other people were thriving with their books, but how?
I spent the next few years learning everything I could about authors, the online world, and digital marketing. During that time, I interviewed over 100 influencers about this very topic.
Then I started implementing and testing the things they shared.
I not only found what works for me, but have created my own frameworks around those things the influencers shared.
The result is my flagship book, Book Profit Secrets, which comes out in June 2023.
But the book, by itself, will not make me a ton of money.
As my friend and mentor Nick Nanton says… “You make money from having a book, not selling a book.”
The main theme is about profiting from “having” your book.
But you don’t have to wait until June to see what is in it.
This Monday, October 31 at 3pm EST, I am giving a sneak peak to some of the key themes I teach about in the book, like:
Why your book may not make money, and how that is actually a good thing
3 myths about books, amazon and royalties, that once you learn them, will change your entire strategy as an author and entrepreneur
How to get the worry about keywords, Amazon Ads and the dreaded Amazon Algorithm off your plate forever
The one thing you should do before you ever send someone to your book on Amazon (or any other platform)
Why low royalties should have zero impact on your confidence as an author, and how to “embrace the suck” and position your book for max profits
3 Things you should start to do right after the training to 10x the future income of your book
The one way most big time influencers launch their books to the top of the charts, that nobody ever talks about and is why they make large profits before they deliver a single copy
If you have ever been down on yourself about the royalties of your book, this session will turn that frown upside down
And a lot more…
This will be a 60-90 minute session (depending on questions), and even though for some, we are cutting it close to Halloween Eve, I promise it will be worth it.
There will be a replay, however, live attendees will get some extra goodies (which will be shared after the recording is done).

Love. Grow.
P.S. One of the goodies for those who attend (and stay to the end) is I am going to demo a free tool that allows you to see how much any book is making on Amazon. But you have to register and show up! The quality of your writing skills, or the content of your book is not reflected by your royalties. Don’t let the number on your royalty check (or lack thereof) fool you. Learn why that is on Monday. Copyright © 2022 Ray Brehm. All Rights Reserved.
