I have read many DIY books for self publish authors, but Shelly's book is the most concise and helpful I have come across.
It ticks all the boxes for me.
I am not a technical person at all and trying to find my way around the procedures involved in self publishing is a minefield. This young lady explains it in such an easy way; I am indebted to her.
I hope she decides to write a manual on blogging next.

Shelly's book became a good source of information because it codified in one are the important points that I needed to know in order to make a book a success. If you don't know it. Just publishing it is not enough. There are other things that you need to be aware of. You can hire a literary agent to get that information or read Shelly's book. They will both give you the same material. I recommend Shelly's "Self-Publishing Books-101."

It has the information that any writer can use. Even if you don't want to go the self-publishing route.

This is a good starter resource for publishing and especially if you'll be using CreateSpace like me. It's basic, which is good, but it also provides links and other resources for taking it to the next step and getting published! Recommended.

Normally I don't write book reviews, but this book forces me to. This is a total waste of time. The book makes about a dozen points. Each of them is repeated about a half-dozen times in only 48 pages, first in the introduction, then in the text, then in a bullet list, and finally in a summary "Nutshell" concluding chapter. It is full of blatant self promotion for the author and for Create Space.
What really hurts is that the book is poorly designed and written. The cover is obviously from a plain, stock template. The interior type is too large (probably to increase the page count). I read the book in a couple of hours, with many distractions. I was stopped on numerous occasions by nonsensical paragraphs, and errors.
The author claims that you can publish a book in a week, for free. This one might might not even have taken that much time.
If you want to find the shortest path to seeing your name on Amazon, this is the book for you. If you care about the quality of what you publish, then probably not.

I have published five ebooks on Amazon Kindle, and have been wondering about the logistics of also issuing them as print versions. So I was attracted to "Self Publishing Books 101."

The author takes readers through all the nuts and bolts of publishing your own book in a concise and clearly written manner. I think that every single question I had is answered, from costs to publisher options (she recommends Amazon's CreateSpace, but also discusses other companies) to cover design and much more.

She also provides links to numerous websites where you can obtain a wide range of publishing services, often free of charge.

It is an excellent work. I have not yet put it into practice, but I am certain that, when I eventually take the plunge into printed book self-publishing, this is the guide that I will turn to first.

If you're thinking about self-publishing a book, start by buying this book. Author Shelley Hitz walks you through the whole process with logical, easy to follow help for each step. Her approach is thorough and simple, and in the end she makes you believe you can actually write and publish a book of your own.

The real value of this book, though, does not lie in the fact that you get a lot of information for a little money. It is in the enormous amount of information she makes available to her readers on her website and in her free email Newsletter. At the end of the book, she provides links to articles and resources on her website.

In short, the book is inexpensive, but the extra information she provides is priceless. If you're interested in self-publishing, do yourself a favor. Buy this book.
