SOME small quirky things that make Dean, Dean are evident from his unwillingness to acknowledge the use of Photoshop or other more contemporary tools everyone should accept as standards, but he admits there is more than one way to get from point a to point b and that gives you confidence in every instruction he advises. He is a competent guide you can trust.
Are you treating your writing as a business? You'd better be. Do you think of yourself as a publisher? You'd better be. Do you know how? If not, Dean explains how to in this book.
He provides step-by-step instructions for the basics, and some of what I thought were the not-so-basics, such as a gift card for Smashwords. Bet you didn't know how to do that.
Sure, he focuses on fiction, because that's his background. I can learn and adapt what he's done to my non-fiction. This is a terrific guide for those of who fell into the deep end of the indie pool.
