Some really great and practical information here for the aspiring self-publisher. If you've been around the writing block for a while, you may find it most useful to just pick and choose the information you haven't come across before, but there's enough variety here to make the book definitely worth picking up. Straightforward and useful advice, at a very minimal cost. Definitely recommended! ( )

I read an older edition I believe as the data only went up to 2011, but it was still a good book and relevant in many ways. I'd recommend this one to any writer who wants to self-publish. ( )

This was very helpful in explaining many aspects of ebook publishing and why it has gained such popularity. Even trad writers are going indie more frequently for the better royalties and control. I will be rereading it soon as it contained so much useful information for indie writers like myself. ( )

Having already read Decoding Amazon by David Gaughran, I already knew some of this book, so I did skim in some places.

I had thought it would be a detailed 'How to' but it was more discussion on all aspects of self-publishing and packed full of resources, about where to go for the 'how to' and listing the most important things to do to market and promote your books. I was very grateful for the lists of priorities, it made it all more achievable and doable, and actually infected me with some of David Gaughran's enthusiasm for marketing and the excitement at all the possibilities (I didn't think that was possible).

Starting from scratch (as I am) some of it doesn't apply: I don't have any budget or money to spend on anything, including my own domain name (and why always Wordpress? Never found it user friendly myself, despite trying several times), and things like BookBub - which I had never heard of before reading David Gaughran's books. It's where indie authors can pay to get their book into readers hands, and which seems to be a very important place to go for Indie authors. I can only hope that once I do have a mailing list, have earnt something from book sales and have more than 10 reviews under my belt I might qualify for such a step.

The main reason why this book didn't make 5 stars for me was the last 90-100 pages being devoted entirely to 30 stories from Indie authors of their self-publishing success and links to their sites. I think I might have read maybe 3 (5 of these would have been plenty). It also meant I skipped the 'end matter' that David talks about being important for all Indie authors to have in their books.

But despite those few drawbacks, I highly recommend this book: it is a must-have for all would-be Indie authors as it is packed full of necessary information on how to go about marketing and promoting your book, and will make you realise how limitless the possibilities are. I felt like I had stepped into a room where all the cool, successful Indie authors lived, and been made privy to tricks and tips I would never have been able to access otherwise. ( )
