Editorial Reviews


"Book Publishing for Beginners is an absolute treasure for the new author wanting to get published. Paul lays it all out, step-by-step, to give you a clear road map of how to proceed. He also includes templates you can use, taking all the guesswork out. If you want to take out a lot of frustration in your journey of publishing your first book, get Book Publishing for Beginners before you do anything else!"
- Wendy Hidgon, Multi-time Bestselling Author

"Paul has launched three successful books now and is very active in the self-publishing space. This book is a no-brainer for anyone interested in self-publishing and having success in the process."
- Tyler Wagner, Multi-time Bestselling Author and Publisher

"Author Paul Brodie has written a book that beginning authors need. Not only those authors just starting out but even if you have 2 or 3 books published, "Book Publishing For Beginners" provides a nice brush up to getting your book out there and doing things the right way."
- Scott Allan, Multi-time Bestselling Author

"Paul Brodie has nailed it! This is a tremendously helpful book for both new authors and those more experienced who could do with a refresh. I was struggling with a challenge myself for my newly released book, How To Find Your Passion and Purpose. Within minutes of downloading I went straight to Chapter 3 "Book Description is Your Sales Copy," and followed both Paul's easy to implement suggestions, and following the helpful link to further tips from Kevin Kruse. I now have a shiny new book description. No doubt there is room for improvement but it is vastly better than my feeble attempt before. Best of all within an hour of uploading the new one I saw both my sales and rankings soar. The before and after examples, additional tips and links to pro tools, including freelancers who can take the stress out of book publishing, and the fact that Book Publishing for Beginners is written by an experienced author in the know, makes this book a very valuable resource. Highly recommended!"
- Cassandra Gaisford, Multi-time Bestselling Author

"I just finished reading this kindle book and it has inspired me greatly. It is so simple, concise and to-the-point. Anyone who is considering publishing a book should get this copy even if you have already written. It is clear and simple to understand. I don't like real technological reading unless I need that particular kind of information; like doing taxes. This is like OTJT (On the job training) and gives you the basics you need to get started or refresh and update what you already know. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is considering writing whether books, articles or whatever you have in mind."
- Mary Coones

"Even though I have written and published a book already, with the ever-changing landscape of self-publishing, one can always learn something new. This is a great resource of information for anyone still drowning at the deep end of the pool. It gives clear and concise steps and also some free informational guides to lead you through the uncertainty of self-publishing. Paul has put together a very helpful guide to get that first (or second) book out there. I also liked the fact that he gave his actual results to the promotions he used - the good and the not so good - with complete transparency. No hype here!"
- Debra Barton

"Straight forward, easily understood and to the point. I have published three other books, and I wish I had this resource prior to embarking on the writing and publishing journey. I am now using the formats and steps in Paul's book for my fourth undertaking - it is so much easier. Thank you"
- Ross MacInnes
