Everything you ever want to know about being a writer in the modern age, with all the advantages that the internet offers. The two writers list their own achievements, so you can be sure they know what they're talking about. They are also frank about their mistakes. The other brilliant thing about this ebook is that they promise you free updates every six months, so you know your information is always up to date. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed this book and found it covered the majority of my questions. Being a newly published author and a novice in the technology of self publishing I did feel a little frustrated, however, as I I had hoped for more specific and comprehensive advice into the areas of self promotion, blogging in particular. I felt the book breezed along at high speed but very much on the surface. I wish it had slowed down in order to delve more deeply. New as I am to publishing, there was little I hadn't already encountered in other books.

The arrival of the eReader has transformed publishing in a way that most people could barely have imagined just a few years ago. Some writers have grasped the nettle and made a lot of money from eBooks, others have buried their heads in the sand and are seeing their incomes plummet. This book is for those writers who want to make sense of the publishing revolution. The first statement that grabbed my attention was the quote "Learning to write is hard. And earning money from writing is harder." That is so true. Few non-writers understand just how hard it is. But this book can and will make the experience easier. It's packed with information that will help any writer and aspiring ePublisher. It answers pretty much all the questions that I get asked by email, everything from basic writing techniques to blogging and the use of social media. And it is really well written, it flows without being patronising and preachy. It's as if you've sat down in Starbucks next to a couple of writers who give you the benefit of their experience over a cup of coffee. It's published by the team that took the eBook world by storm with the bestseller Sugar and Spice and includes many of the techniques they used to make that book such a success. . The best couple of quid that any aspiring writer can spend (and cheaper than a coffee in Starbucks).

Wow.

I could end the review there... but I have a few more words.

This e-guide is both reader and writer friendly, and I could not put it down. This book was SO helpful.

I won this in contest, but it was a contest I entered because it looked as if it'd be both useful and motivational - and it was! Presented well and full of useful advice. I'm still working my way through the re-read!
