Small book, Big help!,
This review is from: The New Author: A beginner's self-help guide to novel writing, publishing as an independent ebook author and promoting your brand using social networks (Paperback)
The New Author is full of so much great information if you're thinking of writing and publishing, not just an ebook, but any book. It mainly consists of three parts: writing your novel, building a social media platform, and publishing an independent ebook. The author takes everything in a step by step process as he holds your hand through your journey, instilling wit and knowledge based on his own mistakes and successes. The New Author is told in a very personable aspect, which makes reading it enjoyable and easy to follow. I've tried reading some other books on how to be a better writer, but they all seemed too textbook-like and preachy. Granted I'm still floating in part one (writing my novel), but it was extremely informative on what I should be looking forward to do in respect to my commitment on finishing my book. The Top Ten Tips in the conclusion of the book really summarized and solidified the book for me. I'm actually looking forward to re-reading the book several times with a highlighter in hand. This book is a great aide and will be a great reference as I continue my own "Authorly" journey.
