self-publishing success for indie authors


How Much Writing Makes You an Author?

Short answer: All of it.

Long answer: It’s a misleading question. What I really meant to ask is how much does it take to become a successful author.

3 books is the consensus. This applies to both fiction and non-fiction authors.  I have polled hundreds (maybe even thousands at this point) of authors and they all say that they didn’t start to see traction on any of their stuff until they had about 3 books published.

[of course this is not counting the occasional anomaly who already has a large tribe & the one-hit-wonders]

The biggest thing you can do for your author career is write. The best way to build your platform? Write.
