Book Review – Reader Magnet by Author Nick Stephenson


Reader Magnets: Build Your Author Platform and Sell more Books on Kindle

Building a successful author career depends on three things... You need to attract the right readers to your work. You need to convert "curious visitors" into fans. And you need to turn "fans" into "buyers". You can do all this with Reader Magnets. Reader Magnets are what bring readers to YOU.

Build Your Author Platform and Sell more Books on Kindle

When a reviewer uses the words face paced, action, you tend to think of fiction. But Nick Stephenson’s book is a hard-hitting, action driven, non-fiction book aimed at the self-published author. He cuts out all the fluff and gives you the action steps you need to take to propel your career with reader magnets. The focus of this book is to build your author platform and sell more books on kindle.

He has some impressive reviews including New York Times & USA Today best-selling author Joanna Penn praising the book.

It is a quick read and I read it in a single sitting during one of South Africa’s notorious load shedding sessions. While I started actively using reader magnets during the lockdown, there were some fundamentals that I missed. I cleared my diary for the next five days and sprang to action. I started tweaking my offering and saw some improved results very quickly.

This book is not for procrastinators. It is for serious authors who are willing to take action. If you do not have the time to do all these techniques, then dig into your pocket and pay someone to implement them for you.
