Editorial Reviews

Review

"Excellent work, well written, good information and a quick read." - David Meerman Scott, bestselling author of The New Rules of Marketing and PR

"Jim Kukral shows you the new rules to publishing in the digital age. Follow his advice and you'll increase your chances for fame, influence and profits." - Dan Janal, Author of Reporters Are Looking For You

"In No Publisher Needed, Jim Kukral once again hits a home run.  Through his own unique and proven experience, Jim explains how to "crowdsource" your book before a single page is written.  That way, you can prove the viability of your idea, build a loyal fan base, and obtain initial funding to create a book that succeeds in the marketplace.  I know I am excited to begin my next book project and to put Jim's advice to use." - Brian Newman

I've never given a bad book review but I just had to say that this book was a huge disappointment. First, the price is over valued. Why? This isn't a book; it's a marketing brochure and I prefer not pay for someone else's marketing collateral. Throughout this document, the author constantly pitches his businesses and services in an attempt to get the reader to spend more money on his enterprises. I haven't checked his website but I suspect that you will learn as much from his website, for free, as you would from this document. Apologies to the author for my candid review.

This book reeks of "marketing guru" types who make their money off selling marketing information. The information the author writes about may have worked for him for a marketing book, but WILL NOT work the same for a fiction book. Giving examples such as JK Rowling, but then stating "she did it backwards by being successful first". NO KIDDING. You aren't going to find many sources for funding if you are an unknown fiction author. It doesn't matter how interesting your story might be, no one is going to pay you ahead of time. You'd be better off finding a publisher and start working on your 2nd book.

This (like another of his books I've recently downloaded), is a very quick read. But he gets down to business right out the gate and tells you exactly how he raised the money before he ever even wrote his book. Reading his strategies got my juices flowing as I'm starting to come up with many of my own ideas for pre-funding /crowdsourcing. Give yourself a book deal, self publish, and keep your profits. The rules of the publishing industry are changing fast and if anyone's going to show you the path -it's THIS GUY!

I've been thinking about crowdfunding my next publishing project and Dan makes it seem like a realistic option. He pulls no punches and gives authors a realistic view on all the hard work and planning it takes to raise money. Other important subjects discussed are the issues of integrity and transparency during the crowdfunding process.

My only complaint is he briefly mentions taxes, which is an important subject. He also doesn't mention the possibility of failure and what to do when things don't work out.

All in all, however, I really enjoyed the book and got a few good ideas from it!

It may seem that it would be a difficult task for self-publishing authors to raise funding for the creation of their book. Even some of the social-funding channels are not available to every kind of literary project because of certain restrictions and rules most of the funding sites have. Jim's book shows you the author, how you can raise the needed funds yourself, how to find contributors, and how to effectively create a platform (blog,website,landing page) along with the use of Facebook, Twitter and other places to attract your potential funding audience.

I'm still working out how to adapt some of the concepts for use with fiction ebooks. Wish there was more depth to many of the concepts. Granted there is alot of information packed in this book, I found myself thinking that some were cut a little short. A little vague. Seems that the only way you will get the "meat" of the concepts is to follow the many weblinks scattered throughout. Overall great ideas and marketing plan. Just wish there was more of that plan actually in the book itself. Will have to report back after attempting the process.

I have just self-published my first novel and am thinking about getting crowdsourced funding for my second one. I stumbled upon an online essay of Kukral's and liked what he had to say, so I decided to follow up by reading this quick guide. I read it in an hour and it gave me a good intro to the how-to (and why-to, if that's a thing) of this type of marketing and funding. A good basic guide with some solid tips and tricks. I'd definitely recommend it.
