About Dave Chesson
When I’m not lightsaber dueling with little Jedi, or sipping tea with princesses, I’m testing new book marketing tactics, and helping authors improve their book sales.
I’ve worked with many New York Times bestselling authors like Ted Dekker, Orson Scott Card, Kevin J. Anderson and more. I’ve also been a paid consultant for multiple major publishing companies.
I’ve even been called “The Kindlepreneur” by Amazon when talking about my understanding of how to optimize books for more sales.
In order to help authors reach new levels with their book marketing, I created Kindlepreneur as a free resource with the sole goal of giving you everything you need to take action, and see results.
