Meet Rachel Abbott, The Self-Published Author Who Sold 2 Million Books

When Rachel Abbott wrote her first novel, Only the Innocent, she didn’t intend to publish it, but her family and friends who liked the book convinced her to publish it, so she released it in November 2011.
Three months later, Only the Innocent hit #1 spot in the entire Amazon UK Kindle store. It remained in the top spot for four weeks, eventually becoming Amazon UK’s second bestselling self-published title of 2012.
Today, Rachel Abbott has six novels under her belt, and she has sold over 2 million copies of her books. How did she manage to go from amateur writer to one of the most popular crime fiction authors in UK? Find out in our interview with her.
RA-square
What is your professional background?
I worked as a systems analyst, and then founded an interactive media company, developing software and websites for the education market. I sold the company in 2000 and continued to work for the company that bought my shares for five years. I moved from England to Italy, where we restored a 15th-century Italian monastery. For a time my husband and I operated it as a venue for weddings and holidays after I retired – just for a bit of fun.
How did you get into writing crime fiction?
I had always been an avid reader of this genre, and had a few ideas that I believed would make good stories. Then I spent a snowy winter in Italy and finally found the time to put one idea I had into action!
Why did you decide to self-publish your books? What are the pros and cons of self-publishing?
I originally had no intention of even trying to get my book published. I wrote it for my own enjoyment, but I was under pressure from friends and family to see if I could get a publishing deal. I sent it to a few agents, who were fairly positive in their responses, but felt that it wasn’t the right time for this kind of book. When I saw that I could upload to the Kindle, I just decided to give it a try – and luckily for me, it worked (after a huge amount of marketing effort, though). The pros of self-publishing are that as the author you have complete control over your books and how they are priced, marketed, what the covers look like, etc. You also receive a much higher proportion of the income. The cons are that it is much more difficult to get your books into book shops and there is a huge amount of additional work involved in promoting and preparing your books for publication.
You have a literary agent. What are the benefits of having an agent as a self-published author?
Having an agent is wonderful, as any successful writer will attest to. When one writes alone, plots alone and works alone having an agent who is interested and committed to that work is a huge benefit. My agent offers considerable editorial input, liaises with booksellers on my behalf, sells foreign rights for my books – the list is endless and I genuinely couldn’t have done it without her.
A lot of self-published writers edit their books themselves, but you hire editors to help you with that. Why do you think having an editor is important?
The editing process can be long and difficult but the result is always an improved book and a self-published author having that kind of creative professional input is invaluable. I don’t think it is possible to edit your own books. The editor looks at the structure, the pace, the characterization. As the writer, you are inevitably too close to the work. Many writers think that the copy-edit is the ‘edit’ but that comes much later, when the structure of the story is working. Even that is much better done by a third party who finds it easier to identify inconsistencies in style, repeated words, etc.
What is your process for creating book covers and what role do you think the covers of your books played in their success?
I am fortunate enough to have a cover designer that I know well. When I ran the interactive media company all those years ago, he worked for me. I sometimes (but not always) have an initial idea of what I want on the cover and quite often I search photo libraries for the core image – but the cover goes through several iterations before we get exactly what we are looking for. Of course, we maintain the same style for all the covers of books in the same series, using the same fonts and title layouts so that the books are hopefully instantly recognizable.
How do you price your books? What factors do you take into consideration?
I have retained the same pricing structure for a few years now. The price was based on £2.99, but then there was a change to the VAT, so that meant that for the same return I would have to charge £3.48. I was concerned about the impact this would have on sales, but it really didn’t seem to make a difference. The advantage of charging a reasonable price – which is considerably less than some of the books from the traditional publishers – is that books can then go into special deals on Amazon with a substantial price reduction. This has always worked well for me, and I try to get the books priced at 99p during the promotions – although this is sometimes outside my control. With so many books available for 99p it does mean that the number one position in the Amazon chart is more elusive than it used to be, but I want to offer my books at an accessible, but fair, price.
How do you promote your books?  How much time do you spend on marketing?  What marketing methods do you find to be most effective?
I use a range of different promotion techniques, and these tend to change with each book as trends vary from year to year. I always write a marketing plan so that I know where I need to focus, but increasingly I think about my existing readers as a priority. They are a faithful and supportive crowd, and they deserve my attention. With this in mind, I do try to engage them on Facebook and Twitter, but I also have a mailing list which means I can contact readers via an occasional newsletter. I probably now spend about 30% of my time on marketing over the course of a year, but around the time of a new book release it is closer to 70%.
How did people (your readers, other writers, and the media) react to you being a self-published (as opposed to traditionally published) author?
I am fairly sure that the readers either don’t know or don’t care that I am self-published. All they are interested in is whether or not they enjoy the book. Most writers are interested in how it works, although many of them throw their hands up in horror at the amount of time I have to spend on the marketing. Some – a very small number – can be a bit scathing and are under the impression that I am only self-published because I can’t get a traditional deal. That’s not true, but everybody is entitled to an opinion. With regard to the media, I think things are changing. I am now getting reviews in popular magazines, and have been invited to talk on BBC Radio 4’s Open Book as well as many regional radio shows.
What is it like to be a bestselling author? What are the pros and cons of literary success? What impact did it have on your life?
It’s exciting! I can’t really see any cons – although I suppose that when all my friends are meeting for coffee on a Friday morning I always say no, because it’s the middle of a working day for me. But generally being a writer makes each day different and interesting. As my books have become more successful, I also get asked more regularly to attend events, which is wonderful because I have an opportunity not only to meet other authors that I have enjoyed for years, but also I meet readers. So it’s all good!
What are the most important lessons that you have learned throughout your writing career so far?
Without a doubt the most important lesson has been that I need to trust my editor. When I first received feedback from an editor on my book, I was shocked at the level of detail she went into, and the number of rewrites that I had to do. I think I actually argued that she was wrong! She wasn’t. I now accept that when my editor says ‘the pace has dropped here – you need to fix it’ – she is invariably right.
What would be your top 3 tips for Writers in Charge readers who want to self-publish fiction?
  • Be certain that you are prepared to devote the time and effort to marketing your book if you want it to be a success.
  • Pay for a professional editor – you may think you don’t need one, but you probably do.
  • Enjoy it. Don’t just write because you think you’re going to make a lot of money – the chances are that you won’t, so you have to do it because you love it.
What’s next for you? What exciting projects are you working on that we should know about?
I’m currently working on two books – one is another Tom Douglas novel, and that one takes priority because I know it’s what my readers want, but the other is a stand-alone novel which I am definitely going to write, but will have to squeeze in between my other writing.

Need a professional writer? Fiction and non-fiction? contact richard.nata@yahoo.co.id
Let me introduce myself. My name is Richard Nata. I am an author, novelist, blogger and ghost writer. My articles, including short stories have been published in magazines and newspapers since 1994. I have written a lot of books, both fiction and non-fiction. So I was a professional in the field of writing, both fiction and non-fiction.

I was born in Jakarta, August 17, 1968.  

In 1988, at the age of 20 years, I started working as an accounting staff. Age 24 years has occupied the position of Finance Manager. Age 26 years as a General Manager.

In 1994, my articles published in magazines and tabloids.

In 1997, I wrote a book entitled "Buku Pintar Mencari Kerja". This book is reprinted as much as 8 times. Through the book, the authors successfully helped tens of thousands of people get jobs at once successful in their careers. They were also successful when moving to work in other places.

In 1998, I started investing in shares on Bursa Efek Indonesia (Indonesia stock exchange). As a result of investing in the stock market then I can provide consulting services for companies that want to go public in Indonesia stock exchange.

In 2015, I had the idea of a startup company where the readers can decide for themselves the next story. WASN'T THIS A GREAT IDEA? IF can be realized WILL BE WORTH billions USD. Because CAN PRODUCE FOR MILLIONS OF DOLLARS even tens of millions USD annually. 

In theory, in 10-20 years into the future, my startup income, amounting to hundreds of million USD annually can be obtained easily. AND IF FOLLOWED BY MANY COMPANIES IN THE WHOLE WORLD WILL THEN BE A NEW INDUSTRIAL worth trillions USD. 

To be honest. Currently I'm not having a lot of money. So I start marketing my startup with blogspot.

My STARTUP :


A story with millions of choices in it - looking investor like you.



Try to imagine this. When you're reading a story on the web or blog, you are given two choices. You can choose the next story based on your own choice. After selecting then you can continue reading the story. Shortly afterwards you will be presented back to the 2 other options. The next choice is up to you. Then you continue the story you are reading. After that you will be faced again with 2 choices. So onwards. The more stories you read so the more options you have taken.


If you feel curious then you can re-read the story by changing your selection. Then you will see a different story with the story that you have read previously. The question now is why is this so? Because the storyline will be varying according to your choice. 


I, as the author is planning to make tens of thousands of articles with millions of choices in it. With tens of thousands of articles then you like to see a show of your favorite series on TV for several years. The difference is while watching your favorite TV series, then you can not change the story. Meanwhile, if you read this story then you can alter the way the story according to your own choice.

You might say like this. Sounds like a book "choose your own adventure". Books I read when I was young.

Correctly. The idea is taken from there. But if you read through a book, the story is not so exciting. Due to the limited number of pages. When a child first you may already feel interesting. But if you re-read the book now then becomes no fun anymore because you don't get anything with the amount of 100-200 pages. 

Have you ever heard of game books?  When you were boy or girl, did you like reading game books? I think you've heard even happy to read it.

Gamebooks are sometimes informally called choose your own adventure books or CYOA which is also the name of the Choose Your Own Adventure series published byBantam BooksGamebook - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gamebook - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A gamebook is a work of fiction that allows the reader to participate in the story by making effective choices. The narrative branches along various paths through the use of numbered paragraphs or pages.

Bantam Books with the Choose Your Own Adventure 

series has produced more than 250 million US 

dollars. While I offer you more powerful than the Choose 

Your Own Adventure. Because of what? Because the 

story that I made much more interesting than the stories 

created by the authors of Bantam Books. You will not get anything just to 100-200 pages. While the story that I created is made up of tens of thousands of articles with millions of choices in it.

For comparison are the books published with the theme "choose your own adventure" produces more than 250 million copies worldwide. If the average price of a book for 5 USD, the industry has produced more than 1.5 billion USD. But unfortunately this industry has been abandoned because the reader begins to feel bored. The last book was published entitled "The Gorillas of Uganda (prev." Search for the Mountain Gorillas ")". And this book was published in 2013.

Based on the above, then you are faced with two choices. Are you interested in reading my story is? Or you are not interested at all. The choice is in your hands.
If you are interested then spread widely disseminated this article to your family, friends, neighbors, and relatives. You can also distribute it on facebook, twitter, goggle +, or other social media that this article be viral in the world. By doing so it is a new entertainment industry has been created.

Its creator named Richard Nata.

WHY DO I NEED STARTUP FUNDS FROM INVESTORS? I NEED A LOT OF FUNDS FROM INVESTORS BECAUSE I HAVE TO LOOKING FOR EXPERT PROGRAMMERS(IT).BECAUSE THE DATA IS HANDLED IS VERY LARGE, IT MAY HAVE TO WEAR SOME PROGRAMMERS(IT).

I CAN NOT WEAR SOME FREELANCE PROGRAMMER BECAUSE THE DATA MUST BE MONITORED CONTINUOUSLY FROM VIRUSES, MALWARE, SPAM, AND OTHERS.

IN ADDITION FUNDS FROM INVESTORS IS ALSO USED TO BUY SERVERS WITH VERY LARGE CAPACITY. FUNDS ARE ALSO USED TO PAY EMPLOYEE SALARIES AND OPERATIONAL COSTS OF THE COMPANY.

FUNDS CAN ALSO BE USED FOR ADVERTISING AND OTHER MARKETING STRATEGIES.FUNDS CAN ALSO BE USED TO ADVERTISE MY STARTUP AND OTHER MARKETING STRATEGIES.

IF I GET A VERY LARGE FUND, THE PART OF THE FUNDS USED TO TRANSLATE THE STORY INTO VARIOUS LANGUAGES.With more and more languages, the more readers we get.
WITH MORE AND MORE READERS, THE MORE REVENUE WE GET. 

AS AN INVESTOR THEN YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FEEL ANXIOUS ABOUT YOUR FUNDS. BECAUSE YOUR FUNDS WILL NEVER BE LOST BECAUSE IN 3-5 YEARS YOU HAVE RETURNED THE FUNDS COUPLED WITH PROFIT.
THIS BUSINESS IS ONE AND THE ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD.

If we can make a good story, so that the readers will 

come again and again for further reading the story then 

our earnings will continue to grow and will never 

diminish. This is due to new readers who continued  to 

arrive, while long remained loyal readers become our 

customers.

So that the number of our readers will continue to 

multiply over time. With the increasing number of loyal 

readership then automatically the amount of income we 

will also grow larger every year. The same thing 

happened in yahoo, google, facebook, twitter, linkedin, 

and others when they still startup.

Deuteronomy {28:13} And the LORD shall make thee the 

head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and 

thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do [them: ]

Try to imagine this. If I give a very unique story. It was the first time in the world. But the world already know this story even liked it. Because the world love the game books. While the story that I made is the development of game books.
Do you Believe if I dare say if I will succeed because my story will be famous all over the world as Harry Potter?
I believe it. Not because I was the author of the story, but because of the story that I made is unique and the only one in the world. 
Income from my startup :
1. Ads. With millions of unique visitors, the price of the ads will be expensive.
2. Affiliate marketing. In addition to advertising, we are also able to put up some banner from affiliate marketing.
3. Contribution of the readers. If you have a million readers and every reader to pay one US dollar per year then you will get the income of one million US dollars per year. 
If you have a million readers and every reader to pay one US dollar per month then you will get as much revenue twelve million US dollars per year.
4. Books and Comics. After getting hundreds of thousands to the millions of readers of the story will be made in books and the form of a picture story (comics).
5. Movies. If we have a good story with millions of readers then quickly we will be offered to make a film based on the story.
6. Merchandise related to characters. After the movies there will be made an offer for the sale of goods related to the characters.
7. Sales. With millions of email that we have collected from our readers so we can sell anything to them.
    Each income (1-7) worth millions to tens of millions of US dollars. 
    Because each income (1-7) worth millions to tens of millions of US dollars. Then in 10-20 years into the future, AI will be earning hundreds of million USD annually.
So how long do you think my story that I made could gather a thousand readers? Ten thousand readers? One hundred thousand readers? A million readers? Five million readers? Ten million readers? More than ten million readers?
But to get all of it of course takes time, can not be instant. In addition, it takes hard work, big funds and placement of the right people in the right positions.
By advertising, viral marketing, strong marketing strategies and SEO then a million readers can be done in less than a year. Ten million readers can be done in two to three years.
This is the marketing strategy of my startup.
When hundreds of thousands or millions of readers already liked my story then they have to pay to enjoy the story that I made.
If you are a visionary then you will think like this.
With the help of my great name in the world of business, my expertise in marketing, advertising, marketing by mouth, viral marketing, then collecting a million readers to ten million readers will be easy to obtain. Is not that right?
The question now is what if people like my story as they like Harry Potter? You will get tens of millions or even hundreds of millions of email addresses from readers. With that much email, we can sell anything to the readers.
Since April 2013, Wikipedia has around 26 million articles in 285 languages are written by 39 million registered users and a variety of anonymous people who are not known from other parts of the world.  Web ranked by Alexa, Wikipedia is a famous website number 6 which has been visited by 12% of all Internet users with 80 million visitors every month and it is only from the calculation of America.

resource : http://www.tahupedia.com/content/show/136/Sejarah-dan-Asal-Mula-Wikipedia

If no Wikipedia then need hundreds of thousands to millions of books required to make 26 million articles in 285 languages into books.

With the Wikipedia then people started to leave to read a book or books to seek knowledge about a subject or many subjects.

The same thing will happen. Read a story in a book or books to be abandoned. Read a story with millions of choices on the web or blog is far more interesting than reading a book or books. 

So what happens next? In 10-20 years ahead then read a story in a book to be abandoned. Otherwise my startup will grow and continue to develop into a new entertainment industry.

New entertainment industry, where I was a forerunner startup will continue to evolve. 
Therefore, in 10-20 years into the future, my startup will be earning hundreds of million USD annually.

So do not delay. Invest your money immediately to my startup. Take A Look. There are so many advantages if you want to invest in my startup.
WHY YOU SHOULD INVEST YOUR MONEY RIGHT NOW? .
IF YOU INVEST YOUR FUNDS IN ONE, TWO OR THREE YEARS INTO THE FUTURE, YOU MAY BE TOO LATE.
BECAUSE IN 1-3 YEARS INTO THE FUTURE THEN I'VE GOT THE FUNDS. THE FUNDS CAN COME FROM SOME INVESTORS, LOANS FROM BANKS OR FROM ADVERTISEMENTS POSTED ON MY BLOG.

IF I'VE GOT A LARGE AMOUNT OF FUNDS THEN I'VE NO NEED OF YOUR FUNDS. SO INVEST NOW OR NOT AT ALL.

My BLOG started to be written January 11, 2015. TODAY, MAY 30, 2015, THE NUMBER OF CLICKS HAS REACHED 56,750. SO FAR SO GOOD.

If I get big funds from investors then with a quick story that I wrote will spread throughout the world.

So I got acceleration because I can put ads in a large variety of media such as Google AdWords, Facebook, and others. I also can perform a variety of other marketing strategies.
If I do not get funding from investors then my story would still spread throughout the world. But with a longer time, Slow but sure.

So either I get funding from investors or not, the story that I wrote will remain spread throughout the world. Ha ... 7x

So don't worry, be happy.

My advice to you is you should think whether the data that I have provided to you makes sense or not .
If my data reasonable then immediately invest your funds as soon as possible.

Then we discuss how we plan further cooperation.


Thank you.
Lord Jesus bless you.
Amen
P.S. The offer letter I gave also to the hedge funds and 

venture capital and other major companies 

in the entire 

world. So who is fast then he will get it.


P.P.S. In addition, there is one more thing I 

want to tell you. If a story can generate tens 

of millions of US dollars, then what if made 


many stories? Then why do not you make 2, 3 or many stories? You will get hundreds of million USD annually.
