There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
First of all, it focuses on the authors who have enough money to buy 128 paper copies of their own books, and leave them for free at Starbucks. Indie writers who have just started sadly don't have such a possibility because they are struggling to make ends meet.
Second, this book might be useful for writers that have published their book in all formats, but about about those that don't have an option for an audio book?
Third, to get the material that SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE BOOK I had to subscribe. I feel that this a scam. I have already paid for this book, and whether I want to subscribe is my choice. However, without subscribing and getting the materials, continuing to read is problemating. After downloading the materials I discovered that it was a 10 page pdf - a basic summary of all the book with EMPTY PAGES. The excel file was also almost empty.
Four, the language of the authors is annoying and it sounds like self promotion, obviously it is self promotion because they "accidentally" attach another link to their book which has only 2 free chapters (for a subscription of course) and then has to be bought. Well, for me it was just discouraging.
Fifth, all the advice presented is nothing new, obviously when one publishes a book it's important to appear on social media.
Sixth, while there is a lot of advice like "get others to subscribe and give you reviews", there is little about actually making people do that. Because you obviously can't ask. Then how should the readers know that you expect them to promote your book? How do I get those FIRST REAL FANS that will subscribe and genuinely share my book with others? Nothing about that.
Waste of time and money, not recommending this to anyone, unsubscribing right away and certainly not joining the cult of Honoree.
TIME SAVING HINT: If you really don't want to read it all, buy the book, find the link to download the 10 page PDF that goes with the book, scan the ideas in that list, and go back to the book to read the ones you want to know more about. That's an easy way to get the meat of the book without reading every word.
With co-authors that take turns writing sections they did a decent job of handling the challenge of two distinct perspectives in one book. It was easy to see who had what ideas and why. That said, I could have done without the pats on each others back throughout for their collective brilliance. At one point Brian even chimes in to say he's drinking out of his favorite #cultofhonoree mug as he writes. It kind of interrupts the flow.
That said, if you've written a book and you've already done a lot of the traditional marketing methods and you're looking for some new things to try, you will find a few here. And, if you're going to write a book, whether it's fiction or non-fiction, you'll find a plan here to motivate you and get you working on your marketing. It's worth it to put this book on your reading list.

I enjoyed the read and did learn more about bookpub and certainly liked Brian's writing about number crunching.
