Lessons Learned from a Best-Selling Self-Published Author – SPI TV Ep. 55

By Pat Flynn on

One of my podcast listeners asked me, “Now that your first self-published, print book has been out in the world for six months, how is it doing? What did you learn from the process of creating Will It Fly?” I thought I’d answer that question in this special episode of SPI TV and offer you guys my honest thoughts about what I learned about being a self-published author from Will It Fly?.

Will It Fly? surprised me. Though I’d been through the book writing process before with Let Go, this book required a whole new level of hard work and focus. I encountered some unexpected distribution roadblocks and production hiccups, and I was surprised by how many people became involved in the launch process.

If you feel like you’ve got a book in you—and I believe almost everyone does—this episode is for you. I’ll share all those surprising moments, unexpected challenges, successes, and lessons learned from writing Will It Fly?.
