How To Become a Top 100 Bestselling Self Published Author Steve Scott header

Steve Scott started out as a regular guy who just wanted to stay home with his family and work from home. He started his blog several years ago and was supporting his family on the income from his site with affiliate marketing and ads.

A few years ago, Steve figured out how to self publish his own books on Kindle and he’s now published more than 16 books in his own name and dozens more under pen names. Steve has become one of the Top 100 Business & Investing authors on Amazon (appearing at #1 in all of Kindle for Business & Investing Authors numerous times,), and he’s also commonly listed as a Top 100 Self-Help author on Amazon Kindle as well.

In today’s show, Steve shares his story along with tips for how authors like you can successful self publish and become a bestselling author. I think you’ll love Steve’s incredibly humble attitude and clear, concise and insightful advice.
