Review

"This book is called the nuts and Bolts of Self Publishing but it is so much more than that. It's nuts and bolts, screwed in tight, providing a solid framework on which to publish your book. Every single thing you need to know is covered, and then some. Even better, it is covered well with the author's experience shining through in every word. It is bang slap up to date with the latest technology being used and discussed. Beginners and experienced authors alike will find this book invaluable. A definite must have for every Indie Author's bookshelf." Wendy H jones, Author

About the Author

Chris Longmuir is an award-winning novelist who has published three novels in her Dundee Crime Series. Night Watcher, the first book in the series, won the Scottish Association of Writers' Pitlochry Award, and the sequel, Dead Wood, won the Dundee International Book Prize, as well as the Pitlochry Award. Missing Believed Dead is the third book in the series.

Chris also publishes a historical crime series, The Kirsty Campbell Mysteries, set during and just after the Great War. This series features Kirsty Campbell, one of Britain’s first policewomen. There are currently two books in this series; The Death Game, and Devil’s Porridge.

Her crime novels are set in Dundee, Scotland, and have been described as scary, atmospheric, page turners. Chris also writes historical sagas, short stories and historical articles which have been published in America and Britain. Writing is like an addiction to me, Chris says, I go into withdrawals without it.

I read this book with great pleasure; it is informative in a straightforward way.

Chris Longmuir takes you through a number of self-publishing scenarios with care and attention to detail. There is no bafflng language here and plenty of help if you need to refer elsewhere.

It filled me with the confidence to move further into self-publishing and with gladness at having read it. You feel taken care of by the author.

Probably the most comprehensive manual on how to get into self-publishing. As an independent writer/publisher myself, I have to say that I wish it had been available five years ago!

Nuts and Bolts of Self-Publishing by Chris Longmuir

The shelves are laden with books which tell you how to do all sorts of things. The problem is that too many of them are written in a way which makes it difficult to follow their advice because boredom gets in the way. This is emphatically not the case with Chris Longmuir’s guide to self-publishing. She knows the subject very well and, more importantly, knows how to convey each step one needs to take in each process clearly and without distractions.

The book is an example of the best of ‘How to…’ manuals. As she takes us through each step of the journey from finishing a manuscript to seeing it appear in ebook and paperback form, it feels as if we’re being guided by a patient, clear-headed friend who’s been there, done that and retained all the experiences and information it can bring. She knows of the pitfalls, short cuts, relevant criteria, costs, alternative routes to the desired outcome, and lays it all out in clear, simple, step-by-step terms that anyone can follow.

The stigma of what used to be called ‘vanity publishing’ has been well and truly erased and so many writers are now opting to self-publish that there’s a genuine need for exactly such a well-written, easy to consult guide to what can be a daunting challenge. It’s hard to imagine that any slim volume could improve on this inexpensive and essential addition to the writer’s library.
