Rick Smith Books has moved…
You’re probably here because you clicked a link in one of my self-publishing books. I wanted to let you know about some changes…
Over the past few years, the self-publishing world has progressed a lot, and it became impractical for me to continue to update my books each time things changed.
Nevertheless, the books remain valid, for the core principles and main messages they contain. The platforms may have tweaked themselves, but they’re more or less the same as they were three years ago.
However, competition is much fiercer than when I began publishing in 2012. Marketing has changed, too. So although I continue to publish my own new material on all the platforms, I’m no longer as qualified to advise you as I once was.
The mechanics of publishing got easier, as Amazon merged their Kindle and Paperback services under a single, simplified dashboard. Vellum (and similar programs) have revolutionised formatting for all platforms, including paperback. Draft 2 Digital will have your book up on just about every other e-book platform within a few days.
And audiobooks are making huge headway in the reading market.
Which brings me to my new thing…
In 2013, I published my book, How to Master Self-Hypnosis in a Weekend, based on my knowledge and experience as a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. The book (with its included audio downloads) has been a great success, selling more than 30,000 copies to date.
In 2016, following the portentous Brexit vote in the UK, I decided to make a big change and start something new.
Since then, I have combined my passion for hypnosis with the opportunities offered by the growing audiobook market. My online practice www.ricksmithhypnosis.com now offers more than fifty audio hypnosis programs starting at just £2.95 / $3.85 each.
I have comprehensive programs for:
and many others.
