4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight for readers and writers 10 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Although, I have never been interested in writing a book, I love reading books. This book offered a fascinating insight to what self-published authors have done or need to do.

The interviews / tips cover various stages of writing which include idea generation, formatting and marketing. Each author shares his/her's experience which proves that you need a lot of dedication to become a self-published author.

The only drawback about this book was that its ENTIRE contents were marked "bold" and I had trouble adjusting it. I am not sure why this was necessary but I do know that it did not make for a comfortable read even after reducing brightness on my iPad.

Would I recommend this read? Yes, to both writers and readers.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4/5
Editing: 4/5
Formatting: 3.5/5
Pacing: 4/5
Offensive content?: I would rate it G.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is full of very useful information for writers! 6 Aug 2012
By Linda Saether M.D. - Published on
This book caused me to have at least two distinct physical reactions. First, I couldn't let it out of my hands until I had read the whole thing, and second, it put me right back in my seat in front of my computer with new ideas for story lines swirling around in my head! I'd say a book like this is a "must read" for any new indie writer/publishers. It is full of helpful and practical information from so many authors of various genres, that somewhere between their stories, websites and blogs, the urge to get back to writing just takes over.
I found it interesting that as I read, distinct and consistent patterns became quite clear regarding what can work, and what doesn't. Before reading this book, indie publishing seemed a bit of a mysterious process, but now I feel I know what is required and what needs to be done, step by step.
If I were to have an ever so little peeve about this book, it is only that this book not only can't be put down, but it has brought me back to research the featured authors even further. I have been very busy visiting their blogs, web sites, and now, reading their books! Enjoyed every minute of it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Top tips from successful self-published authors... a little misleading. 30 Jan 2014
By Scarlette - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If the book had interviews with only truly self-published authors I think it would have been more helpful, but the fact is there were a lot of authors that were previously published with traditional publishers interviewee for the book. For me, this fact negates a lot of the "success stories" because these authors already had a following. There were some good tips and advice, but it wasn't enough to overlook the successful previously published aspect.

I found the book to be absolutely captivating. I hated to put it down. It is filled with success stories of authors I have never heard of. All self-publishing authors should read this book. It is both inspirational and motivational. The book is filled with information that can benefit the writer.

This is a great book with the incites of many authors and what made them successful. I only wish is that Theresa would do another book, "Interviews with Children's Book Authors."
