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 :)
