The end to end process of self-publishing a book is a great deal of work to take on, even for the most seasoned of authors. Throughout our experience working with new or recurring clients, we’ve witnessed firsthand just how overwhelming it can be, with many asking the same question: where do I start?!
When I published Job Escape Plan: The 7 Steps to Build a Home Business, Quit your Job and Enjoy the Freedom, readers kept asking how I managed to get leading experts such as John Lee Dumas, Steve Scott, Nick Loper, Rob Cubbon, Stefan Pylarinos and others to provide interviews for the book. Then, when my husband Girish Kumar’s book The Marriage Mantra was published, people were once again curious about how he was able to land a foreword from Brian Tracy and interviews with Karan Bajaj, Dave Chesson and 8 other authorities.
It is a known fact that including influencers’ perspectives and testimonials in your book lends you increased credibility as an author and adds more value to the content for readers. Yet while all of that sounds fantastic, how can a first time author with no connections to these experts achieve this?
