A leading voice in self-publishing

Aaron Shepard is no stranger to self-publishing. He’s been doing it for the earliest days, dividing his time between his own publishing projects and showing others how to profit from self-publishing.

His hands-on experience makes him the perfect mentor for authors looking for advice in the nuances of the “inventory-free alternative” to trade publishing.

One of the things that sets Aaron Shepard apart is his focus on his own publishing projects; he doesn’t offer paid coaching or consulting. As a result, he speaks from hands-on experience, without a “hidden agenda.”

If Aaron’s name sounds familiar, it’s because he’s also the author of one of my favorite books, Aiming at Amazon: The NEW Business of Self Publishing, or How to Publish Your Books with Print on Demand and Online Book Marketing on Amazon.com.

Aiming at Amazon is one of my most often recommended books for authors and clients. It’s the book that I used when creating my author page and blog at Amazon.com.
