Thanks Darrell, your books gives great inspiration to new authors. I have published three free ebooks on my blog but after reading your book I am seriously thinking about publishing my next book on Kindle and SmashWords.

An excellent and well thought out book that asks similar questions to lots of famous and not so famous authors in many different genres. Interesting to see how others work and quite inspirational ideas.

I particularly liked the idea of reading the top ten books in your own genre and checking out their descriptions and covers to compare them with you own.

This is a well-researched, easy-to-read ebook that I'd recommend to all aspiring authors. I enjoyed the interviews--especially those with authors who spoke about ebook publishing and marketing to an internet readership.
