As a relative newbie to the world of writing eBooks, I quickly realized that I didn't really know much about things like publishing options, how to get a paperback version produced (and why you should), networking with other authors to leverage each other's contacts to expand your reach - and many, many other important details of being a successful eBook author.
I have been going through this informative, easy to follow guide to that world, implementing each newly discovered technique as I went along - and absorbing the lessons learned. That process has transformed my overall competency in my newly chosen career. I can honestly say that this book took me by the hand and lead me from clueless beginner, to fairly proficient professional. Oh, I've got a long way to go - but by reading and following the tips in this book, I've saved myself a huge amount of time and frustration.
My advice; if you are new to eBook authorship - and serious about sticking with it - this is a book you absolutely must read.
The book is divided into four sections. The first addresses all the different platforms or ways you can get your book to your market. The second focuses on all the different ways you can promote your book. The third section speaks to why writing more books helps drive the sales of your existing books. The fourth is all about resources. Actually, the book contains links to resources throughout, which adds tremendous value.
Every once and awhile I read a Kindle book that delivers such value or contains incredible resources or material that it deserves a place within my arm’s reach “Go To” book resources. This is one such book. I will definitely be purchasing a copy of the print version.
As the title of my review states: Don’t Miss This One. The authors are to be congratulated for creating a gem.
What the authors provide is a massive compendium on ways to grow your brand, get more sales and create additional streams of revenue. You can do all this without writing another book. Using their words, if you apply these strategies, you'll "make your book work harder," and maximize sales from one piece of content.
There are three tools in this book, that I'm really excited to test:
But, they cover dozens of additional tools, websites and services. Just these links alone is worth the price of the book.
Whereas most books only talk about Amazon (including mine), Nancy and Michelle provide an excellent resource you can use to expand your author brand to multiple platforms.
The authors offer sound advice and many little gems of wisdom along the way - for example how to deal with low productivity, judgmental attitudes, and overcoming perfectionism. The FAQ chapter answers many of the questions authors need to know about self-publishing, KDP, and marketing.
Take a good look at the Resources section at the back of the book. There are some useful links here.
This is a book I totally recommend. If you are an author, it will act as a guide. If you are thinking of becoming an author, it will offer valuable tips to get started and inspiration to help you complete the project.
I have to ding it, though, for copious typos and grammatical errors, which is ironic given that the authors advise us throughout to enlist a trusted editor.
The frequent comma splices are especially jarring and really interfere with sentence flow.
Overall, the authors present an interesting set of ideas, provided you can overlook the mechanical flaws.
