Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

After self-publishing two non-fiction books using the conventional publishing model, this author decided that he had to find a more efficient and profitable way to distribute and market his books. This book is a step-by-step account of the actual publishing model that this author developed by trial and error while writing, publishing, and marketing seven (7) books/ebooks in less than two years. The author has dubbed this new online approach (i.e. via the Internet) the "Online Publishing Model". It involves three primary distribution channels that one accesses via the Internet and that side-step about 90% of the cumbersome and unprofitable traditional publishing model. No more 10% royalties and payments 90 to 120 days after the sale using this model. This online publishing method can deliver payments two weeks after the sale, with profits from 60% to 90% of the cover price. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Author

A few years ago I wrote and self-published two non-fiction books. It was through that process that I learned that there are many problems with the traditional publishing model. I knew that if I ever wanted to be able to make some decent money writing and selling my own books I was going to have to find a better alternative than the conventional publishing model. Over a two year period of trial and error research and experimentation, I did manage to find a better way. Instant Book Writing Kit is a detailed account of EXACTLY what I discovered and how you can do it too. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I am in the process of writing my first e=book. I am enjoying the writing, but concerned that I need more information on marketing to actually make money with this. So, I took the time to read up on reviews and choose a book from Amazon. This book had the best reviews. They weren't many, but they praised the book, the author, and the information. So, I went with it even though it was more than I normally would be willing to spend. My opinion on the book? Um...okay.

-The book arrived soft cover. 8.5 by 11". I don't normally ready the specs on a book and I am sure that it told me that somewhere and I just didn't pick up on the information ahead of time. But in addition to a $[..] dollar book that was oddly sized and soft covered, it was also thin. I figured, "Well, it's gotta be packed full of information being full pages. So, I start by opening it up to discover it is in at least a 16 point font. Okay....not so packed full of information.

-At this point the book could have redeemed itself in the quality of information, but I found that it didn't contain much. This expensive book was full of dull information and I had already read about 98% of it online doing a Google Search on the topic.

-So why two stars and not one? I got two things out of it. First of all, I hadn't thought about the fact that my book should be copyrighted before hand. Second, the author recommends a site that will allow you to easily distribute your book to Amazon and other online bookstores both digitally and in print. That's also something I hadn't read before. Of course, now that I have shared these two tidbits of knowledge with you, you don't need to buy the book.

-Finally it has some charts that are set up as check lists.

This truly is a comprehensive manual on how to write and publish an ebook, covering everything from font styles to obtaining copyright and ISBN numbers, marketing the final product (including affiliates), arranging for payment processing, and utilizing "Print On Demand." Unlike many books of this type, it doesn't sugar coat the task at hand, but rather offers practical advice ranging from how to obtain a professionally designed cover to overcoming the dreaded "writer's block." Finally, his critique of the traditional publishing model is the best I've ever read!

I have two non fiction books published. Alas, I discovered Shaun Fawcett book after my books were already in print. In it I found many things I had to learn the hard way. I have read many books on how to write books, some of them excellent, but they did not have this step by step approach plus a flowchart. I was dreaming of a book of this kind, with a fully developed step by step plan. Well this book exists. If you plan to be a non fiction writer this book will avoid you costly mistakes and will accelerate your path towards success. Also, it will enable you to become an author-entrepreneur of your own books. The key to it is the step by step plan. Buy it!

The concepts are valid and the instructions are good, but there are several references and internet tools which are no longer available or are simply outdated. This book is dated (copyrighted) 2004, and four years in the online world is a verrrry long time. It wouldn't take much to revise this book and bring it up to date, but the author hasn't seen fit to do this, at least not yet. One has to know where to go to find current tools to substitute for the outdated ones. However, I think the overall value is still there.
