So I’m gonna tip you this week, but it’s gonna be really quick because my book is due […]

Prepare to Succeed Marketing Tip Monday

Christmas in July JA Huss Style (or Preparing to Succeed) My version goes a little something like this: BRAIN: Sh*t. Holidays are coming again. ME: Take it easy, Brain. It’s July. BRAIN: Yeah, duh.

ME: I had that plan four months ago, so chill. And I did. The […]

They have great sales all summer. I’ve had a couple of great summers myself. I think this one will be pretty good as well. But I take my own advice in this blog post. I have things set up […]

How to Launch a Book – Marketing Tip Monday (on Tuesday)

How to Launch a Book – Marketing Tip Monday (on Tuesday)

How do I launch a book? I remember doing a Google search on this very sentence way, way, way back in 2012 when I was getting ready to publish for the first time. Guess what? I didn’t get an answer. I have read some pretty comprehensive posts about how “other” people launched a book and those have helped. But generally there is no one way to launch a book. And you can do everything some random successful author does and […]

Marketing Tip Monday – Tip #3 – How I Got “Discovered” in 5 Easy Steps

Discoverability is the new self-publishing buzzword these days. “You have to be discovered” is the siren song for Indies. Some authors maintain that Amazon Kindle Unlimited (KU) is the answer, some authors maintain going wide and selling on all platforms is the answer, some authors want to scam their way up the charts with formatting tricks, some authors try and trick potential readers into thinking they are the next “Big Thing” by purchasing fake “Social Proof”. All of it works. […]

Marketing Tip Monday – Tip #1 – Building Your Facebook Fan Page

Marketing Tip Monday – Tip #1 – Building Your Facebook Fan Page

I’ve been thinking about making some kind of author marketing course. I just bought this killer fucking course authoring software for my other business (I make online courses for homeschoolers) and this program is the fucking shit for making online courses. (Storyline 2 if anyone is interested.) So I figured I’d try and put one together before the end of the year, but in the meantime, I’d start making content by blogging. Now these blog posts will not be in […]
