Are you trying to become a best-selling author on Amazon? Would you like to know someone who’s had the same struggles as you, but made his big breakthrough? Then, you’ll want to catch my interview with Amazon Top 100 Best-Selling Author Paul Rega. Read on!
How I Met Paul Rega
About two or three years ago, I was joining every Facebook group related to self-publishing books. From free promotions to niche-specific to Kindle Unlimited exclusive books to follow-for-follow groups, I joined them. The issue with these groups was that it was like shouting about my books in a crowded city transit bus.
But, once I stopped and actually got to know people is when I saw these groups pay off. I joined a group called Advertise Your Books. Unlike the other groups that were micromanaged by an anal retentive few, Advertise Your Books had no rules. Seriously, none.
The guy running the group? Paul Rega. And, here’s the cool thing. Unlike any of the other groups, Paul directly messaged me and chatted about books, Twitter, and what I was into. I did a little digging and came to find out, Paul Rega was (and still is) the REAL DEAL. It was like a rockstar just called me and wanted to chew the fat about the business.
I tripped over backward to chat with Paul at every opportunity I could get. He even felt comfortable enough with me to bring me into an exclusive mastermind group with him and a who’s who of people killing it in the self-publishing industry. Though I’ve since moved on, I hold a special place for each of them and more specifically Paul.
And that’s why I felt it was high-time I got the goods and shared how awesome Paul is with the world. The dude is articulate, cerebral, and a brilliant writer just to name a few. But, who really is Paul Rega? And, what’s his story anyway?
