Author Bryan Collins provides well-researched methods and examples coupled with humor and personal stories to let you know how he became successful as a self-published author. He also makes clear that not everyone writes for the same reason and that people define success differently.
This manual provides applicable lessons for both new writers and published authors. Good writers consistently learn, read, and improve. Bryan Collins teaches how to read and understand books so that you can formulate educated assessments to use in your writing.
This book provides such a logical order for how to collect, research, and present ideas that after reading it, I am inspired to write again!
He continues with the information necessary to self-publish a polished book and earn money from the effort.
Collins offers methods he has tried that are suitable for those who prefer handwriting first drafts and recording research, as well as tools for writers who prefer to make best use of technology. The author shows readers how he put his own advice into practice.
I will read this book again, and I suggest that you read it and keep it on your shelf as a reference manual. I can guarantee that I have implemented some of his action steps at the end of each chapter and will flip to the lists of questions he provides each time I begin to write anything of substance to share with others.
Note: I received a review copy from the author before its publication.
If writers work through the writing exercises and follow the advice in the book, I’m sure they are well on their way to writing a well-planned and marketable book. An extensive list of tools and resources is included in the book. However, the author makes it clear that basic tools and the concepts in the book, together with motivation and commitment, are the key ingredients for success.
I highly recommend this book to any prospective authors of non-fiction books.
I received a review copy of the book from the author, prior to the book’s publication.
I'm still working my way through this book but I'm enjoying so far, just like every other non-fiction book I've read of his before. To me, reading Bryan's books is like spending time with a good friend (and I've never actually met the guy).
I'm working on my own non-fiction ebook and this book brings all of Bryan's helpful topics together in one place.
The author starts off by addressing the problems nonfiction writers need to be aware of before launching into writing their book, he gives clear examples of how to be disciplined and organized while writing.
He methodically covers everything the writer needs to know in great detail, encouraging his readers all the way right up to the self- editing stage, a chapter he covers more thoroughly than others.
I found the writing exercises at the end of the chapters particularly valuable. Bryan Collins shares a lot of practical information throughout this book: he includes his own experience, the costs of writing a self published book today, top tools for writers to use and more.
As both a self published and traditional nonfiction author I thoroughly recommend this book.
