SPI 124: Your Author Empire—Pick a Niche and Publish for Profit with Steve Scott

When I published my book Let Go, I started a Facebook Group of authors to document my progress. The group was a crucial component in the marketing efforts of the book, but has also grown to become a hub for online authors and kindle publishers. Since then, the group has grown to more than 7,300 people!

Like most communities that you’ll create online, there always seems to be a few standouts—people who rise to the top as the most helpful and active in the forum. One clear standout in this particular group is an author named Steve Scott, who is always offering his advice, responding to questions and sharing his success.

Since starting his book publishing empire, he’s published dozens of books (42 total) and is now earning a healthy 5-figures per month (averaging $45,000 per month)!

I wanted to bring Steve on the show today to share exactly how he’s built his empire, and tips and strategies we can all use to win in the Amazon Kindle market without spamming.
