We depart from our normal format because of how excited Andrew and I are. KT tells us how she launched her first book and got 30 orders, took some time to restrategize and used her beta to build her audience and now sells 30,000.
We did not ask KT any of our normal questions but instead talked about betas and BetaBooks and the scandalously overlooked marketing benefits that smart authors are leveraging to get their most passionate fans invested in their careers.
Audience Building before you launch your book is explored. The difference between writing as a business and writing as a hobby is also discussed
We also talk about BetaBooks and the administrative, creative, and marketing benefits it provides. We do not talk about BetaBooks a ton, which maybe we should do a little more since we love it and are proud of it. Let us know if you want to hear more and maybe we will do a couple episodes where Andrew and I just talk about making software for authors.
