The real reason why your books aren't selling, and how to fix it

Could this be the reason why your books aren’t selling?

You may not believe it, but, there really is a reason why your books aren’t selling…

Hey, it’s Sandra.

Today’s post is for you if you are an Author who is so tired of struggling, tired of trying to figure out how to put all of the pieces together in order to finally see the kind of success you have been longing for as an Author.

I completely understand how frustrating it can be to put in all the hard work of writing a book, only to put it out there and not see the kind of results you thought you would.

I myself know firsthand what it is like to write a book, upload it to Amazon, or some other platform, and not see any downloads.

Zero sales.

I have cried. I have asked other authors who have published books in the same genre of me what could I possibly be doing wrong, and have even quit a few times on my career as a writer. I mean, let’s face it, if you write a book, and nobody downloads it, that must mean that you suck at writing, right?


It does not mean that you suck at writing; it does mean that you just haven’t tapped into YOUR audience.

As an Author, it is so important to build an audience of people, who will be eagerly awaiting each and every book you put out there to sell.

Your audience is the key to how well you will do as an Author.

So, how do you build this audience?

You have to put yourself out there.

Think about it. When your favorite Actor comes out with a new movie, what do you do?

You go and you see that movie more than likely because they are in the movie, right?

How do you even know that the person is an Actor or Actress?

You probably see them on social media, a few commercials, in other movies.

Keyword: ‘see’.

You see these people. You learn of their existence.

That’s what you have to do for your audience. You must make yourself visible.

So, in 2018, I am launching a few new programs designed to teach authors how to build their platforms so that they can get in front of their audience.

Am I going to teach you how to get millions of followers?

No. I don’t have millions of followers. But I do have thousands.

I am going to teach you how to build YOUR own following of people, who are excited about what YOU have to offer.

Once your build YOUR audience, and YOUR platform, so that you can connect with YOUR readers and finally see
sales from your book(s).

I am going to be sharing this information with you via Facebook. So, if we aren’t connected on Facebook, you can connect with me by clicking here.

You are going to see a lot more training from me in the coming months concerning being an Author and Entrepreneur, so stay tuned. And, if you have friends who are aspiring authors, send them over to my website so that they can get their hands on my self-publishing blueprint. Just send them to

If you have a question that you would like to see addressed on a Facebook Live, via my blog, or during my Youtube mini-courses, you can submit them to

Until next time,

Sharing is Caring!
