Highly recommend this to anyone who's trying to 'go it alone'. You're not alone, there are so many of us out there!
Writing this as a ps some weeks later - I am on the first day of my 'free promo', having followed much of Jeff's advice, and my novels have already hit the Top 50. Two more days to go - it works! Buy this book and do what it says!!
Thanks Jeff :)
Thanks Jeff great information for new authors.
When I wrote the title to this review, I was thinking of my own experience as an indie author and publisher; my first book was published a four months ago. And I knew nothing. A big fat nothing. I had nine - yes, just nine - followers on Twitter, and I didn't know why it mattered. But I'm a bit of a computer geek and a research fanatic, so I spent weeks and weeks finding out what I needed to do. The sad thing is, I could have found it all - and more - from The Indie Author's Guide to the Universe. The time that I spent finding out what to do could have been spent DOING it!
I read this book in one sitting - and realised that despite my many hours of research over the last few weeks, there was still so much advice in this book that I could put into practice (and already have). So whether you are thinking of indie publishing, or you've already started but need all the help you can get, I strongly recommend that you buy this book and I wish you every success in your writing.
The book doesn't focus on how to write, assuming that if you've bought this book you're already a writer. What it does do is to show an approach to publishing and marketing your book yourself, without relying on the traditional route. Coming, as it does, from a highly successful indie author, it has a certain amount of persuasive force behind it: It IS possible to make a success of going it alone.
However, Jeff doesn't stint on letting you know exactly how difficult it's going to be. Writing is hard and is practically a second job in itself. Publishing and marketing are third and fourth jobs on top of that. He makes no bones about what it takes to succeed. But he also emphasises the rewards that come with going indie.
As someone who has just started out down the long road of indie publishing, I found this book invaluable (the highlighted passages fom other readers in the Kindle version are also really useful!) and full of good advice that I'm going to try to apply when it comes to becoming a success in my own right. Buying this book was a large step in the right direction. Thanks for writing it Jeff!
Stephen Mellor - author of The Long Sleep
Jeff only began writing "seriously" in 2009 but since then I can't imagine anyone learning and then putting more into becoming successful than he. And what's more he's honest, doesn't claim to be the world's most brilliant writer, but simply describes what he's learned along his path from both his mistakes and others'.
He quotes many other successful indie authors, openly disagrees on some aspects of for example John Locke, whilst also praising them too.
Can you afford £2.60? Do you want to know what it takes to become a successful modern day writer? - then buy and read this book, you won't regret it!
