FOR NON-FICTION AUTHORS

There are certain methods that really do make self-publishing a book easier and faster. Do you want to know what they are?

Learn highly effective methods and processes that allow you to get endless book ideas, write your book in an easier way than normal, and make it sell itself.

This is what a successful Kindle author has discovered.

My name is Ian Stables, author of more than fifty Kindle books, many of which became best-sellers.

When I published my first Kindle book on Amazon, I made very few sales. I had good content inside, but the sales just didn't happen. I had a lot to learn in order to get decent sales.

I had a hard time coming up with new ideas for future books. I would spend hours looking through books on Amazon trying to discover the subject for my next book. I didn't just want any idea, but one that sold.

Writing books was not easy. There was the long outline process. I would spends days and sometimes weeks planning it out. I was continually worried in case I had missed something important. The writing process was long and daunting. Hours of scratching my head wondering what to write next and how to word it.

After the hours of writing, came the editing process. This was really hard.

Despite all my efforts, my first books were short and lacked the quality they do today. Despite this, the content was welcomed and I received many reviews praising my ideas.

Through experience, learning, and innovation I discovered (some by accident) many very effective methods and systems. They have allowed me to have several best-selling books.

Today, I can easily come up with endless profitable ideas for non-fiction books.

The writing process is enjoyable and a lot easier. I follow a simple step-by-step process.

There is no long outline process. The structure takes mere minutes.

I never wonder what to say next using my Conversation method. (I discovered this by accident.)

The process includes what I call the golden nuggets. These are what turns a dry mediocre book into one of best-seller quality.

The editing is done in very easy short sessions. No long edit at the end. It consists of three steps. The second step is the breakthrough. It allows me to spot more errors than any other I have tried. The odd one still gets through. However, I know this method allows you to correct every single error. They stand out a mile.

After trial and error, I have discovered how to make books sell themselves. I know what works and the simple methods to do it. The rest is just getting your book published and visible to readers.

Instructor Biography

Ian Stables, Best-selling author with more than 10,500 Udemy students

More than ten thousand Udemy students.

Helping others since 2001.

I want to help as many people as possible with what they want to improve in their lives. I have done that through my writing since 2001.

Would you like to know how to write non-fiction books using a more efficient yet easier method?

This is what my first course will do for you? Many to follow shortly.

My history:

I gave my first talk when I was aged twelve. This was in front of over one hundred people. I followed a program designed to improve public speaking and teaching.

I learned computing and went on to develop a computer system to run a business in herbs and spices. This was designed to allow complete novices to generate customer orders and delivery notes. It then allows the finished order to be processed and then invoiced.

I'm telling you this because I want you to understand something. I have always been keen on learning new things. Not only that, but I like to make things work better. So when I found writing books hard, I started to improve my system. The result is that I now have a system that is streamlined and far more efficient. It allows me to produce quality books that readers gain great benefit.

Part of my innovative mentality means that I am always reading about new ideas. I have also learned a lot by viewing instructional videos on Udemy, Youtube, and the like. There's always something new to learn. I take the best from everything and re-assemble it into a better improved process. I temper it with my own personal experience. Continue to make further improvements. Finally, as I like to help others, I teach this knowledge on via books and now video.

I started writing content for the internet in 2001. In 2012 I wrote my first Kindle book, which was published on Amazon.

I have had several best-sellers. My first one was The Easy Way To Clean. It remained my best-selling title for around two years. I currently have more than fifty titles published.

My aim is to help as many people as possible with my experience and knowledge. I also aim to encourage many others to share their knowledge.
