- Writing Your Book: Cashing in on publishing faster, easier, and cheaper
on Jan. 12, 2013
This is perhaps the most economical and efficient book on self publishing yet.
I’ve written several books and been through much pain. I think this book will save new writers a huge amount of time and effort. However, I’m pretty sure that even the most seasoned self publishers will glean useful information.
It's probably not the only book you'll need to read on self publishing. However, if you need to know about self publishing quickly, this is the book for you!
The key issues for readers of any fast moving topic (and few things are evolving as quickly as publishing) is accuracy and relevance. Is it still true? Has the technology moved on? Does it matter?
Dan deals with these issues by writing the book at a high level. Then, when specific detail is needed he directs the reader to online free resources that have more background information and the specific details to get things done. This has two benefits: Dan keeps the online resources up to date and relevant and the book is a quick read. Also it spares the more experienced reader from details that they already know.
Personally, I owe a lot to Dan. His books have transformed my life and I’m sure thousands of people around the world feel the same way having written and published their own books as a direct result of Dan’s efforts to promote self publishing. When Dan writes a book I think everyone with an interest in publishing should read it. Thanks Dan!
