This review is from: Author & Get Rich: How to Write a Money-Making Book in Only 12 Hours! (Paperback)
If you're an author or writer who has yet to publish a book, this is a book you should get and read on two levels and with two objectives in mind.
From the first level, the book offers basic - but relevant advice - you can use to get down to the business of writing your book. (However, it's not always the easiest read. There are times the explanations are a little convoluted and difficult to understand - something I chalked up to Mr. Dietzel's background as a vice principal...
However, as I said, the ideas and information he provides in the book will help you to write your book - but as with any "how to" product, sift through the information, take what works for you, and discard the rest. Writing a book is a very personal thing - and not every method works for every author. The biggest "secret to success" is to figure out what works for you... And do that.
Now the reason I said to read the book on two levels is because after you've taken the "how to write your book" info out of it, I recommend that you read the book again. This time, look at it as a marketing guide. Notice all the different ways Mr. Dietzel promotes his different products and services. Look at all the testimonials - 20 pages of them... look at how he's created his own "system" and named those systems - so they become completely his... Mr. Dietzel is indeed a master of marketing, and every writer and author can learn just as much from what he does and how he does it - as they can from trying the practical "how to write" information.
In my opinion, if you're serious about writing your own book, getting it published and then marketing it effectively, this is a "must have" book for your bookshelf.
