I have a pretty popular blog on self-publishing, and I've written a couple of books on the topic myself - meaning I've read a lot on the topic and come across lots of different strategies and approaches to building a loyal audience. For my money, this is the best book on self-publishing out there.

It doesn't matter if you are a beginner, someone who has published a few books, or have a lot of experience, you will get a huge amount from this book, which is jam-packed with all sorts of useful information. It's like a How To on how to build a publishing empire. I had several lightbulb moments reading this book, and I know you will too.

These guys know what they are talking about, they have published millions of words, self-published to great success, sold a series to Amazon, and built a loyal readership that will follow them anywhere.

And they tell you how to do it too. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy.

EDIT: I received an ARC of this book, but without any agreement to review, let alone give any certain type of review. I receive tons of ARCs all the time and most never even get read, let alone reviewed...

There are a lot of great things I could say about this book. It's funny. It's informative. Rather than going through a bullet point list of its many merits, let me focus on the quality that I enjoyed most.

The best thing about this book, to me, is that it is devoted to teaching you how to think. You won't find screenshots teaching you how to format your files for the different online retailers or step-by-steps walking you through how to fill out a product description. The advice in this book will not only help you today, but years from now. I feel confident saying that because the focus is on how to approach situations. It will show you what type of thinking and the attitude you should as you try to build a career. They will teach you how to CREATE opportunities (they are serious about the 'no luck' part) for yourself.

In this book, Sean, Johnny and Dave advocate a systemic and repeatable approach that takes the guesswork out of being an author. The work ethic and can-do attitude that fills every page appeals to me so much. It's inspirational and motivational. Reading the book really makes you believe that it's possible to approach a writing career as a business person instead of that guy risking everything on a roll of the dice. You don't have to hope and pray that you get lucky. There is a line in the early part of the book that says: "Success comes from hard work and the accumulation of small numbers." That is such an awesome sentence, but more than that, it's an awesome philosophy.

Ultimately, that's what this book is about. It teaches you how to win a lot of small battles that have the cumulative effect of leading you to a life of victory. If you want to learn how to make it as a self-published author, do yourself a favor and buy this book. Read this book and keep it close by so you can read it again.

Love the Self-Publishing Podcast but wish that you could cut through the 30 minutes of inside jokes, discussions of the corpulent undead, or genre-specific unicorns and get to the useful content? This book is for you!

An honest look at the world of self-publishing that doesn't promise Internet Gold in 48 hours (registered trademark) in exchange for $97. Rather, it offers specific instructions on how to get launched as an indie author when starting from nothing, and an honest appraisal of the work involved. Written by guys who know their trade and have inspired me to make the dream happen.

One of the best books on writing ever written. If you are a fan of the Self-Publishing podcast, you will be a fan of this book.

There is no sugarcoating in this book. This is the real deal. It is a simple roadmap to a career as a writer. It is good for authors of both fiction or non-fiction. This book is by 3 guys who know their stuff about self-publishing and are not afraid to share it with you.

Thanks to the authors for a great read.

Write. Publish. Repeat. Three words that tell you what it's all about for the Indie author.

I just finished reading this book, and all I can say is wow. I caught wind of it from Steve Scott's blog. He highly recommended these guys and I can see why. What really caught my mind was the marketing section.They give lots of great advice on how to get your book out there - but perhaps the big one is - Write a memorable book that your readers will really enjoy. Nothing else happens until you do this.

The other thing I like is they don't waste a whole lot of time talking about promoting your book on social media, blogging, and such. Their focus is on connecting with your ideal reader. Like it or not, not everyone is going to like your book, but guess what? It doesn't matter. Your goal as a writer is to find your tribe, find those thousand loyal fans that will go out of their way to promote your work and spread the word for you.

Another topic they delve into is how to build your sales funnel. Steve Scott talks about it in many of his books, but these guys really drive the concept home. They show you how to build a marketing funnel starting with free or low priced books that will draw readers into your circle of influence to build more sales. It's a really cool concept, and if it's the only idea you take from this book it's money well spent.

I've also been putting off building an email list, partly because of the cost, but more so because I didn't want to take the time to figure it all out. But the way they put it, this is a big mistake. It's one of the big things keeping me from building my tribe and sales.

The last thing I want to say is - This book is totally different than most of the other Kindle advice books out there.
