This a book about self-publishing and Tony's unfortunately confused that with self-publicising. Not that this is a terrible crime, but by the time I'd worked my way to the end I was really sick of him mentioning his other books for the hundredth time. And the way the book has been laid-out is really not good enough (sorry Tony). Confusing use of fonts and text-positioning. It wasn't all bad at all - just could have been better with a damned good editor..

Tony Loton's book is a very handy starting point for authors keen to use Print on Demand publishing. The writing is clear, covering most aspects and explaining much of the process of getting published on Lulu and CreateSpace. It gravitates towards text book publishing rather than fiction, but the author is upfront about that bias.
The book itself was actually printed by Lulu, so it's also useful to get a fix on the quality and standard.
One picky point is that the book has minor editing inadequacies, such as the captions: 'Figure 1..., Figure 2...', etc., are in the same font and font size as some section headings, making it a confusing read at first - if you publish on Lulu then you as the author are usually responsible for the accurate editing and correct layout etc.
But such minor issues don't detract from the usefulness of this book. Recommended, if you're interested in getting started in POD publishing.

I am an Author and for some time I have been struggling through the self-publishing jungle. I have looked at many options and was unsure of which way to go when my book was ready for publication. However after reading Tony's book the way became a lot clearer and I made my decision regarding the path that I should take. The price of the book which at first glance seemed to be a bit on the high side, turned out to be money well spent.

This talks you through the steps to publish with Lulu and Createspace. Simple steps and simple language.

the biggest impact for me was that it demystified the process and gave me the confidence to get started.

a simple thing like saying that the downloaded page template appears blank, but explaining what attributes the template had, was of real value.

At least one of the links has changed since publishing, as may be expected, but so what. I felt comfortable enough to look for the page.
