How a self-pubbed author nabbed a six-figure deal

One self-pubbed author nabbed a six-figure deal with a traditional publisher, but it’s probably not anything others can replicate.

- Are you the managing editor of American Cheerleader or another magazine that appeals to the same audience you’re writing for?

- Have you already written six unpublished novels?

- Are you active on YouTube?

- Do you have a blog?

- Are you active on Facebook?

- Have you made a trailer for your book?

- Have you gotten Publishers Weekly to run several articles about you:

Well, then you might be out of luck.
