Reviews of Free Guide to Self-Publishing and Book Promotion: Inside Secrets from an Author Whose Self-Published Books Sold in Thousands by Valerie Estelle Frankel

Chris Mason reviewed on July 19, 2018

I found this book to be the best book on self publishing I have read to date and I have read quite a few books on publishing.The book is very well written and well researched. I recommend it for the following reasons regardless of the book's age.
1. The steps to publishing are laid out for ease of understanding.
2.The author also let's the reader know the difficulty of each step and where outsourcing might be worth thinking about.
3. While the book does cover Amazon. The book is not Amazon-centric as more recent books on the subject seem to be.
4. The book is filled with resources and while some of the internet web links are out of date due to the book's age the book is still a cornucopia of information.

It's a must for new authors. I would say it's a great book for authors especially considering the price point. What I most like about this book is that there are so many good links to useful groups, websites, etc., I had no idea about those sites and groups before.

I would recommend this book along with Dan Poynter's self-publishing manual to all authors.

This is a book that goes into book promotion from start to finish to after finish. Chances are you've seen anywhere from 20 to 50% of this advice elsewhere.

But it's the other 80 to 50% you probably haven't seen that makes a difference.

Lists of useful links, personal experiences in promotion, suggestion after suggestion with ways to do it. The book is pretty much a do-it-yourself promotion guide. Worth your time to read it if you're an author period.

This book is jam-packed with information. It covers the whole process of a book's adventure from the Author's mind to the readers hands, with many an invaluable doh-se-doh sideways tid-bit, and live examples.
If you're planning to self-publish, ad this book to your arsenal. You won't regret it.
