4.0 out of 5 stars Can jolt you into being a productive writer 7 Sept. 2014
By Jacques Laroque - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jack Diamond's book can jolt you into being a productive writer. He deals with the subject of procrastination directly, bluntly and effectively. I like it when writers define their terms and defining procrastination by outlining how many of us tend to jump from task to suddenly appearing task through the day until all writing time has been lost defines what procrastination is and does. I'm guessing many people will recognize their own procrastinating ways in the first section. I don't believe he's cheating when he uses the standard advice for new writers, instead, he's just repeating what needs repeating because new writers come along every day, month and year. I published a number of short stories during the Nineties but needed a book like this to restart my writing engine.

Also, I appreciated the way he deals with the topic of e-publishing because, back in the Nineties, there was no e-publishing, no Kindle readers, no systemized market like Amazon has and most stories on the Web were written for no pay at all.

The big transition for me involves the fact that my experience was in publishing hard copy. I got $200 for 3000-word short stories and could write one salable story in a week or less. The word lengths for short stories, novellas and novels was defined, especially for short stories published by magazines. What Diamond calls a book (meaning book length) I would call a collection of about 3 short stories, maybe 4. Whatever, I see big name writers publishing novels which are much longer than Diamond describes. I doubt he's really a novelist but that's a quibble.

I found his description of the actual steps of manuscript preparation (for use in Kindle readers) helpful though not detailed. That's OK by me, at least he provided enough so that I can investigate any details I may want to know more about. Same goes for his section on how to price your books. The math is simple. You can get an idea of how many e-books at what price will give you the income you need or desire. The ultimate job of a writer is to please enough readers who will buy your books. So deciding what genre you write in is of basic importance. If you like Stephen King's books then write in that genre. If you like Amy Bloom's books then write in that genre. But be productive, it's your job.. I paid $2.99 for "How to be an Ultra Productive Writer" and have no regrets at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not Great 21 Aug. 2014
By Jon Cohn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a good read, but the formatting changed my whole vibe off. It could be because I Have a Windows Phone, however, I have not had this problem with any other eBook. And I prefer to read books on my phone. The paragraphs were too short and despite his explanation for it, i had to wonder if it was worth the price (i paid nothing). The information within the eBook was worth being thrown off a little bit, but not to the extent I was. Nevertheless I believe Jack Diamond had insightful ways to be a more productive writer, And because he has put forth good techniques to produce more and higher quality work, I give him three stars.
