Kreskin book signing at AARP 50+

This past weekend, I attended and did a presentation at the AARP 50+ conference. As part of my presentation to prospective authors, I explained that self-publishing is not just for people who can’t get published, but, in fact, even celebrities are choosing to self-publish because it gives them control of their content, speed to market and usually a higher royalty percentage. One example is The Amazing Kreskin. He wrote a book titled Kreskin Confidential, which details some of his experiences as a guest on The Tonight Show and other performances. According to Kreskin, here’s why he self-published,

“I didn’t have the time or the opportunity to have myself or my management sit and negotiate with publishers.I am pleased with my final choice because I have become immensely satisfied with the professionalism and the quality of work I found in AuthorHouse.”

What about you? You don’t need to know any tricks to get published. Just like Kreskin, you simply need to make a commitment to get your work into the hands of your readers.
