The (almost) Complete DIY Guide to eBook Publishing Reviews

    The (almost) Complete DIY Guide to eBook Publishing contains a great deal of information that would help any would-be writer navigate the complex world of self-publishing. The problem, however, is that navigating the book itself can be challenging.While the book does not tell a writer how to actually *write* a book (that, the author says, is best accomplished by practice and hard work), the DIY Guide does explain how to publish and promote an indie book.The advice offered in this book is comprehensive, covering topics from how to format a book for Smashwords to the best uses of an author's blog. It also contains so many links that a reader may find herself overloaded with information. But for anyone starting out in the writing industry, this book would be very helpful.The problem is that the book itself is very confusing. The formatting (at least in the Kindle version) makes subheadings from headings blend together. Also, the overall organization is a bit strange. (For example, advice on how to use FaceBook and Twitter is placed between the sections on how to create a book cover and how to format text.)I would recommend looking at this book on a computer as opposed to attempting to sit down and read it cover-to-cover on a Kindle or Nook. I think the document would both be easier to read and easier to navigate.So here's the upshot: "The (almost) complete DIY Guide" is full of wonderful information for a newly-minted writer; however, finding all of that information may be a challenge.

    The (almost) Complete DIY Guide to eBook Publishing is just what it sounds like. It’s a how-to manual for anyone looking to get into self publishing.As someone new to the self publishing scene, this work has been invaluable for me. Russel takes the reader through pretty much the entire process from writing to formatting, to finding your audience, to successfully promoting your work.To me, there are two key strengths to this book. The first is the thoroughness of the author’s overview of the publishing process. She seems to hit every step along the way and it is clear it comes from personal experience. Second, is the host of resources the author offers. There are dozens of links out to additional resources for every topic. Like any good reference, I suggest printing this book out, sitting down with a highlighter and pencil, and taking notes as you read through. You’ll want to come back as there is simply too much rich information to get it all in one reading. But be sure to have your computer close by. There are tons of links in this ebook to additional resources you’ll want to explore. Each time I read through this book, I something new to learn or explore.What's cool is, this is a living document. Russell says buyers will get an updated copy when new additions have been made... I believe I read somewhere that this is done twice yearly, but don't quote me on that. I can't seem to find where I read that.This book is written in a very colloquial manner and there are a few grammar errors or typos here and there. But it didn’t bother me, though it might bother some. The book reads as though the author sat down and dumped the wealth of her knowledge late one night into a document. For me, that was a positive thing. Imagine having access to someone’s body of experience in self-publishing as well as their list of bookmarks on the topic for $.99. That’s exactly what this book is.If you're looking for someone to do the work for you - you won't find that here (nor anywhere else, I imagine). And I think some people may not realize that. This is a reference - a lake of links to other resources - coupled with an explanation of the publishing process. If you understand that, as I said, your going to get your .99 cents worth - and I believe it is well worth it!My Full review:

    Coral Russell's DIY Guide for the Independent Writing Community is rich with sound advice. It is packed with references that the author has checked thoroughly and reads like a checklist for success. Readers/writers will be able to put much of the content to use right away. I'm so glad we have experienced and generous authors like Ms. Russell who make it easy for the rest of us. This guide would be worth it at twice the price!

    First of all let me say that I am not an "author" of any books. But this (almost) complete DIY guide was kinda interesting at first just to see what it might take to publish something. To read more: Breath of Life

    If like me you are a novice at self publishing you will find that the thousands of links Coral Russell has sourced will save not only your time but your sanity.
