In today’s episode of the Cops and Writers Podcast, I interview Michael Anderle and Craig Martelle.
Michael Anderle started releasing books in November of 2015. Three in November, one in December, and one in January. By November of 2016, he was doing six figures a month in sales, and that December he started publishing others in collaboration with other authors. Over the last six years Michael’s publishing company, LMBPN has published about 1,500 titles, 250 audiobooks (by them) with another 600 or so licensed, and about 170 foreign language translations in 7 languages. They have sold over 5,000,000 books and continue to release stories in multiple genres including paranormal, action-adventure, urban fantasy, fantasy, military science fiction, and space opera.
Michael is the founder of 20booksto50K® Facebook author group which has over 60,000 members.
Craig Martelle retired from the Marine Corps, spending time both as enlisted and as an officer. Then he went to law school and took his law degree in business consulting where he became a business diagnostics specialist and leadership coach. He retired from that at age 52 because he was away from home way too much. That is when Craig started his path to becoming a prolific bestselling author. Craig also runs the 20booksto50K® Facebook author group and the 20booksto50K® author conferences that are worldwide. The 20booksto50K® Vegas conference is the largest indie author conference in the world!
In today’s episode we discuss:
· How Craig and Michael started their bestselling author careers.
· What “Outlaw Publishing” was and what their part was in it.
· How and why Michael started 20booksto50K®.
· The tips and tools they use to produce an extraordinary number of books each year.
