133 – Crystal Boyack on Self-Publishing and Selling 1,000 Books

 

Summary

The first quarter of the MSS Hub Mastermind program starts in just a few weeks. So if you’ve been curious about joining, now is a great time to get plugged in and start your year off strong!

Today I’m talking with my guest about her journey from book idea to selling the first 1000 copies. We talk about how she tried to publish through a traditional book publisher and ended up self-publishing, how she bootstrapped the first print runs, why she doesn’t expect to make a profit by selling on Amazon, and even how she made people angry with her marketing.

And if you’re the kind of person who likes to hear the numbers, you’re going to love this discussion because Crystal lays it all out there.
