Hi, my name’s Alison, and this is what I do for a living. I’m an independent publisher. 18 months ago, I was working as a general science and chemistry teacher. I absolutely loved being in the classroom, but the endless paperwork, extended working hours, behavior issues, and remote learning because of COVID had me totally frazzled. My stress levels were beyond ridiculous, and I developed high blood pressure. Time for a change of careers. I needed something stimulating and mentally challenging. Something that would allow me to work independently, choose my own hours, and that I could do even while traveling.
One day I was checking my Facebook page and there it was; Sophie Howard’s KPI course. It was meant to be. I clicked on the link, read the fine details carefully and immediately signed up. It is exactly what I was looking for. Sophie’s course tells you everything you need to know about publishing independently on Amazon. I’ve learned how to research for profitable topics, how to format books and upload onto KDP, and how to market my books. The course has helped me every step of the way as I’ve been building up my business. I now have two children’s picture books published with a series in development. I have a range of low-content books, and I’m in the process of writing my first non-fiction book. It’s early days, but my sales are increasing every month. And one of my low-content books was even ranked number 121 in its category.
Now, I could’ve learnt this on my own, but I would’ve led myself down so many rabbit holes that I would’ve given up. Do yourself a favor. If you want to become an independent publisher, if you want to produce high quality profitable books for sale on Amazon, learn from someone who knows all the pitfalls, someone who can save you from falling down those rabbit holes. Sophie’s KPI course is well worth the money. And who knows, one day you could be sitting on a beach in Fiji reading your own published children’s book.
