Although the book is geared toward self-publishing audiences, any writer can benefit from the tips and techniques discussed within it. Thomson provides spot-on advice for writers about selecting topics to write about, how to identify possible trends that might be an excellent opportunity for writing and publishing a book, and how to tap into your own interests and experiences to find content.
I particularly like the Quick Idea Formula; Slant Your Book Ideas for Success, and Questions to Ask Yourself About Book Ideas sections in the book. The Appendix with all of the links to other resources is worth the $.99 price alone.
So why is the book only 4 stars instead of 5? A couple of reasons: First, the book is ambitious, too ambitious and it starts moving beyond the premise on the cover of generating non-fiction book ideas and spills into details about the writing process and the publishing business which is good information, but it feels rushed and incomplete, as if the writer combined content from 2 or 3 books into this one book.
As a result the flow of the book is somewhat chaotic and in several places becomes repetitive, often repeating the exact same phrasing from earlier in the book. The book could use a massive developmental overhaul to eliminate these redundant sections and maybe reorganize the sections to help improve the overall flow of the book.Read more ›
book ideas that will have the best chance of selling. The techniques in this book
could also be used for coming up blog post ideas and other forms of nonfiction. I love
the price and the fact that you can pick up the book and flip to a page to get a new
technique. Yes, this also makes it a good bathroom reader. :)
This is certainly not a horrible effort and for 99 cents, nothing I would go seeking a refund for, but take the value with a grain of salt.
For example... I didn't know I can find a Best Seller list of books from 1900 to 1995... How's THAT for a useful link?
I didn't know there is a place where I can hire many persons to do small tasks for as little as 1 penny per task... How's THAT for a useful link (for example, if you want to compile a directory of telephone numbers in a certain area, and you want somebody else to verify hundreds of addresses...)
Did you know there is a phone number you can call to get a very important Book seller's sales figures for a book? You want to know how many books on Dinosaurs sold, and how many books for "lizards" sold? I had no idea I could find this kind of information, but now I know I can.
Where can you get thousands of free U.S. Government books? I didn't know this... I learned it in this book... They are all in the public domain. I wouldn't duplicate them, but there is nothing wrong with LEARNING from them. I downloaded an extremely interesting book on Wind Power... free... I learned a lot, and I could perhaps decide to write a book about this... (or ask somebody else to write it for me...)
I could go on and on, with more examples, but there are many other reasons besides great links why this book will help me, and I highly recommend it for anybody who wants to write a book... non-fiction, and probably also fiction...
