1st go to Fox's website, and get a free book from him. This way you'll get a risk free assurance that those catchy covers are backed up with info. I've read all his non-fiction books because I like what he's got to say. Not only that, they've actually helped me out. (I read 3 non fictions for authors per week) Six figure author is not never-before-read author rocket science but the delivery of the science is...practical, organized and concise. No preaching in this book either. Namely, this book helped with my long time struggle. I write for two audiences, Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, which at glance don't look so different but they are very different. In one heroine must kick a" and in the other she needs to get some. See? Very different. In this book Fox answers my newsletter questions, namely that curating targeted content is worth the extra effort.
2nd: He explains why Amazon and Amazon KU is the number one seller and provides personal experiences with KU and outside. To say that the amazon code is cracked would be false and anyone who claims they've cracked it, is full of s"". So, Chris doesn't claimed that, but offers answers and exercises on how to hone your audience, how you can make amazon work with you and for you. THIS is super important.
3rd: He goes into "serial readers", their influence and their power, and how to capture their attention. As a long time Sci fi and Fantasy romance reader, I find every word to be true.
On the KU front and if you're hating on KU, I recommend hearing out this side of the argument. Evidence of success is right here on Amazon.
Personally, Fox delivers for me every time. Cheers!
In Six Figure Author Chris provides insight into how Amazon uses the data it collects every time you review or purchase a book, to recommend other books to you and people like you. By understanding this we have the opportunity to train Amazon to find the ideal readers for our books, and essentially have Amazon do our marketing for us.
Every chapter ends with practical exercises so we can put this insight to the test immediately and get real value out of the book. As Chris says “do the damn exercises”.
Out of the many marketing books I’ve read, including several on book marketing, this is the first that takes a practical and non-salesy approach to finding your ideal market and building your tribe. As an introvert, his approach is something I feel comfortable with and just makes sense. It’s done naturally and organically, but it does require research and effort up front.
I strongly recommend Six Figure Author to anybody interested in becoming a better author and book marketer.
Strongly recommended for all writers. Extremely recommended for anyone who's still in their first five or so years in this business.
