"What a gift to aspiring authors! Bob's book offers a blueprint for writing, publishing, and marketing your first book. Use his guidance and watch your success as an author build. Thank you, Bob, for taking the lead in creating what will surely be the foundation for many authors." --Elaine Beich, ebb associates, inc, Author, The Business of Consulting and Editor, The ASTD Leadership Handbook
"If you've written a book, good for you! But, if it's not selling, you need Bob Lucas on your side. If you want to write a book, but don't know how to start, you need to read Bob Lucas. If you feel there ought to be more to life than writing a book, you should listen to the ideas Bob Lucas has. Make Money Writing is about making money from your writing, but it's also about so much more. By following the outlines and advice in this book, you'll make yourself into the professional author you want to be with the following you deserve." --Chrissy Jackson, President, Chrissy Jackson & Associates, Inc. www.Chrissy-Jackson.com
"I've always marveled at Bob Lucas' ability to write so many books of practical advice (in the 30s now) and do them all so well. This one is a must, and a keeper, for any writer ... especially a new one hoping to get published. My first book (Training With a Beat) came out in 2000. Looking back on it, the process was more difficult than it needed to be. If only Making Money Writing Books was available then. With chapters on how to be a good writer, avoiding writer's block, getting yourself known, what a publisher will and won't do, promoting yourself within your industry, marketing your book, and whether to self or publishing house publish, Bob's advice is solid throughout. It's a succinct guide through the must-knows of the writing/publishing maze." --Lenn Millbower, the Learnertainment Trainer
"You may be a great writer, but if people don't know how to find you it won't matter. Developing an author platform is one key to making money writing that will lead to exposure and promotion for you and your books. By personally "branding" yourself as an expert and author, you increase opportunities to sell more books and generate additional income streams through personal appearances and product lines based on your brand. In Make Money Writing Books, Robert W Lucas offers many valuable ideas for doing all of this and more. He also provides helpful web links to people and organizations that can assist in your writing and marketing efforts. Definitely a useful resource for anyone who writes books or is thinking of doing so." --Rik Feeney, Author: Writing Books for Fun, Fame and Fortune!
"I've read lots of books on the writing and marketing process. I was the most impressed with the information, resources, and ideas presented in this one. I can't imagine any author, especially first time ones, not having access to this knowledge about book publishing and marketing; especially marketing!" --Zame Khan, Trng. Design Expert
"In his book Bob Lucas has laid out detailed insider steps and strategies to help authors be successful once they have written their masterpiece. He lays out what he has learned over the years in how to market books whether working with a publishing house or self- publishing. He also has gone the extra step and has provided readers with "worksheets" to help them use these strategies and success steps in their own situation. This is a book where everyone can get ideas to help them be more successful!" --Steve Tanzer, ECC, LCS, IATAN

My recommendation - DON'T PASS THIS UP - it is easy reading, a great resource and current. Well done, thanks for sharing.
The author also writes Training and Customer Service books and you can see the principals from those fields applied within the design, presentation, and quality of the material in this book. I'm a first time author and found this book extremely helpful.
