I’ve been self-publishing now for ten years and Mark is absolutely right about everything he talks about in this book. Over the years, I’ve learned a great deal, made some mistakes and I hope that I learned from them, but my biggest mistake was getting too comfortable. I wrote, published, and did the basics. It really never occurred to me that there were big changes in self-publishing that I should learn about.
Ten years later and I realized that one of the biggest mistakes that I’ve made is not investing in myself by educating myself in this field. Mark mentions that in this book and it’s something that I really wish that I thought of years ago. I’ve been doing this for ten years, but now I’m at a point where I feel behind everyone.
I read through this book tonight and I found a few things that I never even thought of doing and realized that I should be doing a few things differently. I’m going to be implementing those suggestions immediately.
It was pretty cool seeing my name mentioned in this book. It made me cringe when I thought about those terrifying covers. They were bad, really bad and Mark is 100% correct when he tells you that a bad cover/great cover can make all the difference in the world.
I do a lot of the things he recommends in this book and they work for me and have made it possible for me to continue to do what I love. I highly recommend this book to authors at every stage, new and old. It’s definitely worth a read.
