When Jade Eby Isn't Writing...

I write. A lot. But when I'm not writing...you can find me with my nose in a book. Or a Kindle.

The Naked Truth About Self-Publishing - Jasinda Wilder,  Liliana Hart,  Tina Folsom,  Theresa Ragan,  Dorien Kelly,  Jana Deleon,  Jane Graves,  Colleen Gleason,  Deborah Holland, Denise Grover Swank Posted on my blog Chasing Empty Pavements

I've been following most of these authors since they first started writing and self-publishing and a couple of them are my writing heroes. I've known for a long time that self-publishing was the way I wanted to go with my novels so this book seemed right up my alley. And you know what? It didn't disappoint. It was AMAZING.

This is how all self-help books SHOULD be. It's highly informative but backed up with real scenarios, actual facts and figures and easy to follow (and completely sensible) advice. Nothing they say its a "get rich quick" scheme thing. But the thing is--it all makes so much sense you wonder why most people aren't following this stuff. They are realistic to admit that luck plays into a lot of success but so does talent and hard work. Every single author that contributes to this book has worked their asses off to be where they are and I find it's so much easier to believe and trust their words because of that. Honestly, this is one of, if not THE, best self-help (especially for self-publishing) book I've ever read. They give you resources and steps to follow leaving you a solid path to follow if and when you decide to self-publish. Also, I REALLY enjoyed their personal touches on each of their sections. And their stories at the end were amazing. I found Liliana Hart and Jasinda Wilder's stories to be the most touching and profound.

I think this book is great for people interested in learning about self-publishing or want to learn more about the successful authors who wrote this book. It's MOST important for writers aspiring to self-publish. READ THIS BOOK. I promise you won't regret it. You'll thank me :)
