7 Deadly Sins of Publishing … Redux!

If you’re writing a book, and you have only a few thousand dollars to spend publishing and marketing it, how should you spend your money?


Three things must be at the top of your list. If they aren’t, you risk ending up with a book that looks amateurish, unprofessional and sloppy–with no chance whatsoever to become a bestseller.


Three book experts joined me on a webinar Tuesday night to explain “The 7 Deadly Sins Authors Commit in Book Publishing Today.”

Collectively, we have worked with thousands of authors the last two decades, and we see these problems repeatedly. If you missed the webinar, you can register to watch it, for free, at your choice of times and dates here:




You’ll learn the critical steps you can’t skip if you want your book to be a bestseller. If you’re already published, we’ll show you how to breathe new life into a book that isn’t selling.

After you register for the time and date most convenient for you, we’ll send you periodic reminders as your replay date draws closer so you don’t miss it.

P.S. One of the book experts explains the surprising fact you must know if you want to get your book into Costco, Sam’s Club and the other Big Box stores. Hint … that was me!

  1. The option to self-publish has resulted in many mistakes being made along the way. Just because you can self-publish a book doesn’t mean that you can brush off all of the other responsibilities that come along with book publishing.

  2. The reality is … too many books are out there that are in the “crap” category … if you are going to publishing, remember the Momisms: If you are going to do it .. do it right. That means you have a professional editor in play. You don’t do clip art as your book cover. That means you don’t embrace the RTP Syndrome … Rush to Publish. And it means that you support and market your baby.
