Don't let design mistakes tank your book sales!
Have you written a book, but are struggling with all the stuff that comes after the writing – formatting, book design and marketing? Maybe you have no idea how to get your book in front of readers, and also get them to buy it?
If so, pay very close attention.
My name is Derek Murphy and I’m about to reveal how to dramatically boost your book sales. Over the past ten years, I’ve helped launch hundreds of bestsellers. But when I started self-publishing over a decade ago, I did everything wrong (and of course, couldn’t sell a book if my life depended on it).
I spent weeks designing my cover. I even painted the central illustration. But when it was ready, nobody wanted a copy, not even my friends and family (ouch!). Bookstores rejected it on sight, and reviewers stopped responding to my emails. My enthusiasm faded fast after that.
I thought I was a failure. Maybe I didn't have what it takes to be a writer. So instead, I studied everything I could about book design and started helping other authors instead. I also learned something interesting - the design practices for traditionally published books aren't the same as those for self-published books.
Indie authors need covers that stand out and attract attention - not on bookstore shelves, but in online stores. We have much less time to attract readers, and they'll probably only see our cover as a tiny thumbnail. Our covers need to be obvious and clear, and immediately communicate the subject or genre, because 95% of our audience will never click the link and read the full description.
I posted my findings online, and in a few years I had a reputation as someone who could help authors hack the bestseller lists with creative book design. I also got invited to speak about cover design at international conferences around the world.
However, after watching from the sidelines for years, I grew eager to start writing my own books again. This time I knew exactly how to design and launch bestsellers, and I made $35,000 on Kindle in the six months, with only a handful of books.
Getting your books to sell and keep them selling is difficult, even for experienced writers!
I receive emails every day from struggling authors who need help marketing their books. Almost always, books that don’t sell are facing critical, basic problems with their book design. Which is sad, because those things are so easy to fix! 95% of what people consider "book marketing" actually happens before you publish. It's the branding, packaging and positioning that makes the biggest difference in a book's performance.
Unfortunately if you're not a designer, you're bound to make critical newbie mistakes (and professional book design can be prohibitively expensive.) Your book design is crucial to your book's success.
A well-designed book can double your book reviews and cut your marketing budget in half.
It'll encourage viral shares and instantly make the right readers eager to pick it up.
A poorly designed book will get you blacklisted from bookstores and be rejected by readers before they even know what it's about. Shoddy book design will ruin your first (and only) impression. Instead of a calling card, it'll become a visual assault and have readers clawing at their eyes (not good).
It doesn’t matter how good a writer you are, if readers don’t pick up (or click) your book because the cover doesn’t appeal to them, they’ll never read a single word of your story!
But I have great news.
Now there’s an easier way to make great looking books, without any fancy software or design skills
Bestselling book design on a shoestring budget
I wanted to create an easy solution writers on a budget can use to design professional looking books - without the hair-pulling frustrations of learning complicated software, or the terrifying emptiness of a blank canvas. So I built some book cover design and book formatting templates authors can use as a basis, to get started quickly. I also made step-by-step video tutorials on book design to guide you through the process (my tutorials on YouTube have over a million views!)
With these templates and resources you can quickly...★ Design a cover that sells
★ Easily avoid common design mistakes
★ Create professional looking books
★ Choose the perfect font for your genre
★ Format your book for print and ebook
They’re easy to customize, because all the hard work has already been done for you!
So if you’ve always dreamed of becoming a bestselling author and retiring on a beach under a palm tree, and don’t want to waste time banging your head against the keyboard trying to figure this stuff out on your own… this is your chance to level-up.
Previously, these templates were sold separately, but I decided to put them all together in one epic book design package. Here's what's included...
#1: BOOK FORMATTING TEMPLATES
Want your book to stand out, attract readers and sell more copies? The Master Package of book formatting templates has over 100 options to make your book beautifully unique, a package of genre-specific templates, and a whole new video series on book formatting that's more in-depth and easier to follow. These templates will help you format your book for print and ebook, and give you total control, so you don't have to ask a designer every time you need to make simple changes to your book.
#2: COVER DESIGN TEMPLATES
These templates were made in Microsoft Word (crazy, right?). The idea was to use a software most authors already have on their computer. They aren't a perfect solution, but they have helped hundreds of authors create a cover they're proud of. Travel writer Gabi Logan used my templates to create her book, and look how great it turned out!
These templates are not premade covers - they are training wheels to get you started, but should not be used "as-is." You'll still need to find your own art or photographs. For years I've wanted to create something even better, so I'm building an online cover design tool as well; it's not ready yet, but when it launches I'll build a new round of templates you can access.
#3: BOOK MARKETING MASTERCLASS
If your book is invisible, it won't matter how good it looks.
If you're going to design your own book, my video tutorials and design templates will help you avoid the critical mistakes that will destroy sales. But even if you do everything right, you'll still need to get your book in front of the right readers!
Most authors publish first and try to build a platform later, and have no idea how to get reviews or keep their book selling long-term. You must learn to market your books and reach your readers, so I'm including my $197 course on book marketing here as a bonus. Reach Your Readers is my first course, so it's a little rough, but there's tons of specific tips you won't find anywhere else. Click to view the course content.
If you want a taste, you can download Book Marketing is Dead - it's a little outdated but still #1 in the Kindle store. I've made it free for a limited time.
LIMITED TIME BONUS: 3D GRAPHICS FOR ONLINE PROMOTION
As you can see, you're getting everything you need to...
★ Get your book to market faster, without the headache
★ Look like a bestselling author and eliminate the guesswork
★ Avoid amateur book design mistakes that will make your book look unprofessional
★ Save money by formatting and designing your own books
★ Create stunning graphics for online promotion
★ Learn how to build an author platform that runs on autopilot
★ Build a following of loyal readers
★ Keep your book selling long term without spending all day marketing
To put it simply — this is by far the fastest, easiest and least painful way to design and publish bestselling books
Is this massive package more than you need, a little disorganized? Yes. But it's also the best deal on the internet - some people are charging as much for just one individual template. Plus, most book design templates or premade covers aren't made by actual book designers, who know what it actually takes to design books that attract readers, earn more book reviews, and sell on autopilot.
So How Much Does The Epic Book Package Cost?
The average self-published author spends $2500 publishing their first book. Covers can cost between $500 and $1000 (I charge more than that for custom work) and formatting is usually a couple hundred dollars (per book!)
I have friends who charge for individual book design templates, but you’ll be getting a huge package of them, along with my book marketing course “Reach Your Readers” and some 3D graphics for online promotion. As a member, you can also ask me for quick feedback on your book covers, to make sure you're making smart choices.
Separately, all the materials and resources in this bundle would cost $498 - but I want this to be a budget, DIY option most authors can afford, so I'm setting the price at $97 for a limited time. In the future, I'll be putting these resources into a membership community with a monthly fee, but you'l get lifetime access to all new materials and templates by joining now.
$498 in value for just $97
Only a handful of authors will do what it takes to actually earn a living with their writing. Are you ready to be one of them?
