Prolific Author Makes Living by Self-Publishing

From USA Today, article author Jefferson Graham, published 2/15/2012

Scott Nicholson is the author of 70 books. His success comes from self-publishing his volumes and selling them on-line at He publishes using formats for e-readers like Kindle.

Nicholson is a self-taught e-publisher. He uses stock photographs and picture editing software to create his book covers. Nicholson, 49, says, “If I can do it, anyone can do it.”

He publishes four books per year from his home in North Carolina. Though he doesn’t state a dollar amount, he says he earns enough from royalties to have a “comfortable living.”

Nicholson is living my dream. His example is my incentive to keep moving forward, one writing session at a time.
