A great resource that walks you through every step of the writing process - from planning your book to promoting the finished product. I've checked out a lot of writing instruction books, and this one does a great job of covering the basics and a little more - without getting mired down in fluff and rambling.

This book has practical information from an experienced, self-published author. He knows what he's talking about and gets right to the point. Whether you want to write fiction or non-fiction, he's got you covered. He even tells you how you can arrange to have someone else to write your book, if you want to handle it that way.

This is great for beginning authors who want to get a quick start with self-publishing. This is also a good review for experienced authors who feel that maybe they haven't really covered all their bases. This guide is full of practical information to set things up properly, as well as some advanced techniques to boost sales. Do yourself a favor and get this book!

In this book Stuart details his 49 step plan to getting your first book done and dusted and ready for sale on Amazon Kindle. He likes the Number 7 which does have a certain ring to it, I have to admit. Perhaps it stems from the original 7 Deadly Writers Sins! It's actually his lucky number hence the Seven Sections.
I particularly like the way the Author delves into the whys and wherefores of your writing strategy. Having already self published a number of other books prior to this "How To Tips Book" he shares how a prospective Author should approach the project with regard to the research activity. I like his Pareto Principle analogy which intimates that while research might only be 20 % of the effort it could well be responsible for 80 % of the results!
This Tip no 2 (spend time on research) will obviously pay dividends in the end. He details the different places to conduct your research such as Google and Amazon, which are essential if you are not only to write and publish your book, but to actually have it sell.
The fictions tips I have to admit I skipped, since that doesn't interest me but realise that perhaps this might be the part of the book that would be of more interest to others who are planning on writing in this arena. So ignore my impatience and go read every bit of this great book!
The choice of software is looked at in Tip no 13 and a resource called Ultimate E book Creator, which the Author uses must be worth investigating as is a free program called Fast Pencil. Yes I think we could all use a little (or a lot of) a fast pencil most days to beat that old gremlin procrastination. The W.B phrase we don't use when we are a writer (you must know what this means so I am not going to tell you!

This book, "Write Your First Book - 49 Tips To Write, Publish and Sell Your Book" is jam packed with information. It has tips ranging from figuring out what people are looking for to writing fiction and a lot in between!

It looks like Stuart Fish knows what he is talking about. I checked his profile and he has a ton of books. He is a very energetic and prolific writer. One can certainly find a lot of info in this book. At the same time, there is so much covered, that some is covered in depth and other material not as much.

Overall, I think that most writers will get plenty of tips and ideas from the book with everything from strategies to software covered.

This book is set to become a great reference book for all writers, especially those that are new to self publishing. The book is set out in an easy to read style and Stuart's energy and enthusiasm comes across well.

There are several great tips in this book and one that I had not thought of using myself and will be sure to implement it for my next book.

The resource section at the end has a lot of great links and many of these I use myself so can recommend them as well. If you are still trying to navigate your way around writing, publishing and marketing your book then you will find this book to be extremely helpful.

This valuable book gives practical, no-nonsense direction for creating your first book, as well as good pointers for those who have more experience. I especially like how the author offers advice based on his own research and findings, which is helpful feedback for those wishing to write the same type of material. The writing/teaching style is simple and straight-forward, and there's a good resource section for those who want to delve further into the publishing world.

Stuart Fish has discovered his first love -- writing -- and is out to share it with the rest of us. He does a pretty darned good job of it, too. As a Kindle author myself, I own a number of "how to Kindle" books, but I still found ample good advice and tips in Fish's book that I've not encountered elsewhere.

What I really loved and think a lot of people will benefit from is his "You can do this!" attitude, and his overall penchant for enthusiastic encouragement which is born, I believe, out of his own sheer love of the craft. It's infectious, too.

While not a definitive treatment of the subject -- but then it doesn't purport to be -- Fish's book offers an excellent and relatively thorough overview bound to be of great help to beginners, and anyone just getting started or thinking about it. Or to some of us who've already been around the block a time or two. Definitely worth the minimal investment.
