Editorial Reviews

Review

"There are gems of wisdom here that every author will find useful, whether self-published or traditional. An inspiring companion to the 'How To' books on the scene."
-Joanna Penn, TheCreativePenn.com

"A wonderful collection of tips and musings -- easily digestible -- from some of today's most storied scribblers."
-Colin Wright, Exile Lifestyle

"If you want to be a successful indie author, I highly recommend that you read this book! The genius of it is that it goes to the source. Everyone interviewed gets to tell the story of their success in their own words. It's just plain, unfiltered inspiration."
-David Simpson, Author of Post-Human

The version I got on my Kindle had many formatting errors on it. Yes, it did tell some interesting stories --- some of them, anyway --- but I was hoping for more "how they really did it" anecdotes. I just felt like it didn't really get to the meat of the matter... it was kind of superficial in places.

This is a valuable book for (aspiring) authors who want to find success in self-publishing.
The author features twenty different authors who all achieved financial success in different niches,
ranging anywhere from romance to sci-fi to non-fiction.

What I find interesting is that not all authors are mega sellers - a lot of them make a decent full-time living,
some of them make a good part-time income. But all of them achieved good amounts of success that I
believe is very replicable - if folks like them can do it, you and me can do it as well.

After some interviews, you'll find marketing and formatting advice sprinkled in.
I've read the book twice to soak up all the information.

I wish some of the interviews were include even more tactics and more in-depth information,
but maybe that's just me.

Let me save you the trouble: to succeed as an indie author, be persistent, edit carefully, get good cover art, and stick to genres like vampires, witches, or other paranormal. Write a series or two. That is the sum of what you can learn from these poorly edited, cookie-cutter interviews. Considering the audience of people who want to succeed on Kindle, the author could have bothered to spend ten seconds on formatting. There are no chapter headings, no table of contents, not even neat spacing to separate interviews.

I got some good insights into what some successful self published writers had to share. I just wish in the few places where there were incomplete sentences that a second lair of eyes might have caught some of these.
