Editorial Reviews


Reviewed By Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite

So you want to write a book: a novel, a cookbook, a self help book, a memoir. The list of possibilities is endless, but perhaps you are the best person to write this book. Go for it. If this is your first or your tenth book, you might want to choose self publishing over the traditional publishing route. Why? Well, first of all, you, as the author, will have more control over the book: its layout, editing, and distribution. However, it also means more work for you as the author. 

Face it, once you've finished writing the book, you still have a lot of work to do. And, as a self published author, you'll have to do most of it by yourself and at your own expense. Don't get too excited after the first draft. It's way too soon to advertise and promote the book. Edit, edit and edit yet again. Have multiple people read and edit it, preferably professional editors rather than friends and family. Have the book reviewed before publishing it. A good review can go a long way to promote your book. Actually, sometimes bad reviews help as well. After all, Tolkien had a significant number of bad reviews for his Lord of the Rings series. 

There is a lot involved in releasing your book and, surprisingly, the writing part is the smallest part. There are tools to help and that's where Bryna Kranzler's book, 9 Critical Steps to Successful Self-Publishing: Get It Right the First Time, comes in. She takes the author carefully through the basic essential steps to self publishing, providing personal insight into the pitfalls one might experience, as well as the more positive benefits of maintaining complete control over one's work. Her book is an excellent resource for new writers as well as established writers trying the route of self publishing.
