The Fiction Formula And Self-Publishing Quickly with Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant
Jan 08, 2020
Bryan Collins

Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant co-founded Sterling & Stone and the authors of a touchstone non-fiction book Write. Publish. Repeat. They've just released the follow up to that book The Fiction Formula and are co-hosts of the Story Studio podcast.

In this interview, Johnny and Sean explain:

  • Why they stopped creating courses and hosting in-person events for authors
  • How they're going to publish 150 books in 2020 (yes, 150!)
  • What it takes to generate thousands of dollars a month in revenue each month on Amazon
  • Where new indie authors should start if they want to self-publish quickly
  • How the Flywheel Effect (a concept from the business world) informs their creative process

And lots more.

I start by asking the pair why they decided to write a follow up to Write. Publish. Repeat.
