The Chilton Method

A Unique Formula for Creating an Exceptional Book and Selling Tons of Copies...From a Guy Who's Sold Millions!

You may know Dave Chilton as “the nice venture capitalist” on the hit TV show Dragons’ Den. He built his fortune in the most unusual of ways—through self-publishing. While selling millions of books out of his tiny, two-person office, Dave has been besieged by requests for advice from authors and self-publishers. Even the biggest publishing companies in the world have flown Dave in to share his unique book-marketing approaches. Complimented but overwhelmed by all the cries for help, Dave has taken eleven months off running his private-investment company to create this one-of-a-kind comprehensive course. And he isn’t making any money from this effort. None. See, he really is the nice venture capitalist! (Of course, there is a modest charge for The Chilton Method as the production team, the site developer and the distribution/marketing people aren't quite as generous with their time!) Whether you’re just thinking about writing your first non-fiction book or you’re a twenty-year veteran of the publishing industry, The Chilton Method will open your eyes to a new world of book-marketing possibilities.
