BookLife (Publisher's Weekly)
Step by Step
So far, the best book on epublishing I have read to date. It gives a step by step to publish with good justification of each step.
This book saved me valuable time, years of research,
and the insight to not duplicate errors. The book concludes with an array of helpful
links saving the reader the trouble of searching the whole internet for such needed info.
Best Book on eBook Promotion Bar None!
He's very clear about what works and what doesn't work, as well as providing extensive lists of resources that are needed for a free promotion that delivers. I can not recommend this book highly enough.
If there is one book that demystifies the whole murky area of selling books and making money from self-publishing on Amazon, this is the one. The author wrote this book not because he thought it would be a huge money-spinner but because he was disillusioned with the information that the "experts" were imparting to authors. He decided that he would share his own experience, which, luckily for those that are self-publishing, this is the book that can save them time, energy and the avoidance of taking on and following-through on mistruths and misinformation.

Good news! You don’t need to wait for a publishing house or literary agent to discover you. You can publish yourself! And Martin Crosbie’s self-help book, How I Sold 30,000 eBooks on Amazon’s Kindle will show you how.
The decision to publish your own work is a much easier one to make nowadays. The advent of the reading tablet means that more than 50% of books sold are e-books today. Therefore, a prospective author needs only to upload a properly formatted file to unleash his or her greatness on the world.
HOWEVER, if you don’t take the trouble to create a plan of action, your book will likely languish on the Kindles of your nearest and dearest, but few other people will ever know about it.
Martin Crosbie became one of the first self-published authors to experience dramatic success. At one point, his first novel sat in the heady territory on the Amazon best-seller list between a Twilight and Hunger Games novel. He knows of which he writes.
He takes the reader, step-by-step, through what can be a daunting process: preparing your book to reside on the Amazon sales site, where about 60% of all ebooks are sold.
He addresses how to ensure your book is the best version that it can be through beta readers, editors and proofing. He writes about the formatting process. Most importantly, he tells how to market your book, including the engagement of prospective buyers via social media, which provides authors with a vast resource they need to learn to tap properly to enjoy the fruits of their labours.
Martin’s philosophy is to pay it forward. This book achieves that by telling would-be authors that the only thing between their dream of publishing success and making it a reality is their passion and willingness to learn and work hard to make it happen.
