Do you know the #1 reason why most books fail?
How one simple change turned a struggling author into a NYT Bestseller in just 38 days
Have you heard of RL Mathewson?
Most writers have – she’s one of the most successful self-publishing writers in the world.
It wasn’t always that, way though.
Once upon a time, she was happy just to see a few sales a day.
She poured her blood, sweat, and tears into her novels, and was pleased to have earned a small, devoted following, but she wasn’t exactly taking the world by storm.
Then, in the summer of 2012, everything changed.
The one tweak that made her an “overnight” success
On May 29th, she made one simple change to her book.
Her sales exploded almost overnight, and by July 7th, her book “Playing for Keeps” was #5 on the New York Times bestseller list.
Her books have been a fixture on Apple and the Times’ bestseller lists ever since.
So what caused such a dramatic turnaround?
It wasn’t lower prices.
It wasn’t great reviews.
And it wasn’t offering more samples.
No, the one little tweak that changed her career forever was scrapping her generic covers and investing in a hiring a book cover designer for high-quality book cover design. You can still see the difference between covers (print has the old version, Kindle version is updated).
They say you can’t judge a book by its cover…
…but the truth is that most people do.
It’s just human nature. Self-publishing is booming and more and more authors are getting great covers, good editing and even get smart about Facebook or Amazon advertising.
And the importance of the right cover for you book in 2019 is just growing because:
- Amazon is getting more crowded every day (apparently there are around 3ooo books published on Amazon daily (yes, every day!!!!)
- Book Marketing is getting harder because Amazon gives less and less organic(free) marketing to new books and you need to buy more ads from Amazon, Bookbub or Facebook.
So if your cover lags behind, it will just further hurt your chances to have a bestselling book.
Lets do justice to your book with a great book cover!
