I am vociferously passionate about good books. And I hate adverbs.
All you self-pubbers out there: here is an extremely comprehensive book of lists of links to E*V*E*R*Y*T*H*I*N*G. For under ten bucks, you get it all.
If you buy this book of lists you will find editors, lay-outers, stock-photo sites, artists, publicists, content editors, printers, POD’ers, anything really—you are handed weeks’ (if not indeed months’) worth of research into the best you can get. The most bang for your buck. (Or so the authors say).
It is crammed with links to every possible thing a self-publishing author might need—and a few links to stuff you never guessed you’d need.
(The only thing missing is a chapter on how to not be a donkey to reviewers. Maybe that could be a chapter at the end in a later edition?) (Pretty please?)
Very, very good guide to the resources out there for indies, so there is simply no excuse for crappy products now.
Make sure you get this as an eBook/Mobi, as all the links inside are live, clickable and instant. (A paperback wouldn’t be the same, at all).
Have fun, Indies. Break a leg, all of you.
I was given a free review copy of this book from the author, and a positive review wasn’t promised in return.
