Review by: Misti Wolanski on May 30, 2012 :
Well worth the lunch money, even though it's also getting posted free on the author's blog. (And you'll probably want to check out the blog anyway for the discussions in the comments.)

The book provides handy advice on how to set up a sane publishing company that makes sense, makes money, and can hold its own in the business. Highly recommended for self-publishers and small press startups alike.

Review by: Triple V Publishing on Nov. 28, 2011 :
A great resource. Very much a step by step guide, with some simple things to implement, and also a few leftfield ideas.

a must for every indie author.
Yes, it's free on Dean's blog, but like Krista says, it's good to have it in one place for reference! :-)

Outstanding resource.

All of this information is available on Dean's blog, but it's useful to have all of those posts together in one ebook.
