Writers And Self Publishers - The Ultimate Resource Guide
Usually on Wednesday I offer up a link to a site I've found on the web that I enjoy or think is really worthwhile.
Today, instead, I'm going to talk a little about The Self-Publisher's Ultimate Resource Guide
I was given a copy to review. It's gotten 89 reviews on Amazon at this writing and the vast majority are in the four and five star category. In my opinion it's a great resource. Of course it can be expanded upon (what can't?) Of course it's a compendium of lists (what do you expect?) The book is giving the self publisher resources. And it's organized into three categories; Prepare, Publish and Promote.
There's not much fluff and not much commentary, which for me was actually good. It got right to the meat of things. And, I noted a couple of complaints that the links within the book weren't correct. I had no such problem and indeed have found it most handy to jump from one section to another very easily.
It's a book I'll keep handy when I'm thinking about who I need to contact for editing or illustrating, for Ebook conversion, book reviews and marketing - and yes, dare I say it, a whole lot more.
My only sticking point was the subsidy publishers listed under publish. It didn't quite seem like something needed in a resource guide for self publishers - but then again, that could just be me.
