This video is an overview of some of the ways I market books, and how I get a lot of visibility with little to no promotion or advertising. The focus on how to publish books that earn money, for both fiction and non-fiction. I list what most authors do to launch bestsellers, and then talk about what I do different that lets my books continue to sell long-term.
PS) This is one of the introduction videos to my Guerrilla Publishing course. I’ll share a few more videos on YouTube, and if you want more you can join the full program to get more.
Hey there – I’m Derek Murphy. I’m a fine artist who became a book cover designer, then started writing young adult scifi and fantasy. I’ve spent almost 20 years living abroad, have a PhD in comparative literature (revolutionary politics in Paradise Lost), and have been featured in CNN for renting castles to use as writing retreats. Although I’m not working with clients anymore, I’ve built a ton of resources to help indie authors write, design and publish bestselling books.
On this channel, I talk about writing, publishing and creating personal freedom with unconventional business strategies and providing value. My videos are unpolished and a little raw, because we travel full-time and I focus on content, not production quality.
