How to Successfully Write, Self-Publish and Self-Market a Book and Turn a Profit


Like many authors, writing a book was a long-time goal for Chris Lindsley, author of Land of Fun. But not all authors have the same success Chris has with his book, which was named Browseabout Books’ best-selling book of 2019. Exactly how did he do it? In this session, Chris will discuss his writing, publishing and marketing journey, which included conducting interviews, compiling a mountain of research, and making some difficult decisions that ultimately empowered him to take more ownership in the project. Finally, he’ll share his multifaceted approach to marketing the book.

Chris Lindsley has 35 years of writing and editing experience, mostly in sports and health care. He served as editor of a national sports magazine for kids (KidSports), and a consumer health newsletter with a subscription of more than 2.5 million. His work has appeared in the Washington Post and many other publications. He lives in Takoma Park, Maryland, with his wife and two children.
