Dan Padavona may not be a household name as a mystery and thriller writer, but he’s amassed thousands of devoted fans. A self-published author, he has released nearly 50 books since 2014 and become one of the best-selling writers on Amazon. Dan’s hard work has resulted in nearly $400,000 in income from his Wolf Lake series alone over the past 12 months.
In the following video interview, Dan and I spoke at length about how he achieved this monumental success. We got into a wide array of financials, including revenue generated from paperback sales, Kindle bookstore sales, and Kindle Unlimited. We also talked about Audible, the ACX program, Dan’s creative process and former career, and a whole lot more. If you’re an aspiring author or just getting started in the industry, this is an interview you want to watch. If you’re an avid reader, my conversation with Dan provides you with a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating the books you love and the life of a self-published author. Enjoy!
