Episode 15: How to be a serious self-published author with Alexa Nazarro

Listen now!

Interested in self-publishing but not sure where to start? Feel like it might be right for you but want someone to hold your hand through the process?

Then this episode is for you.

My guest today is Alexa Nazarro, the owner of Aaxel Author Services and an expert on all aspects of self-publishing, from writing your first drafts to publishing and marketing your book. She understands the art of writing regardless of genre, and she understands self-publishing and marketing for the independent author.

One of the things I wanted to do with this podcast was give authors and aspiring authors access to all different kinds of information that will help them in their careers—which includes all the publishing options available today. I can talk about the traditional publishing route, and I love finding people who can talk about the self-publishing route with knowledge and expertise and valuable information that will help authors choose the right path for them. Alexa is one of those people.

We talk about:

  • How to decide if self-publishing is right for you
  • The things in fiction writing you have to get right
  • Why you shouldn’t trust your first draft—or your mother’s opinion of it
  • How to be a superstar marketer once your book is out

And so much more!
