If you are a writer, be you unpublished, published in the traditional manner, an ardent Indie publisher or even a mix of Indie and Traditional, you will learn something from this book. I rarely do book recommendation posts but sometimes I run across something that I think every writer can use and this book on the craft and business of writing is such a book.
I’m a big fan of the Self Publishing Podcast and I think this book condenses the best advice Sean and Johnny and Dave have from that show. So if you don’t have time to go back and listen to their entire podcast back list, then get this book and read it. Even as a loyal listener, I value having all the advice in one easy package. It’s a great reference book and I believe the advice inside will hold up over time.
Many successful writers have been saying the same thing about writing today: Write, Publish and Repeat is a very common mantra that everyone seems to agree on. Writers like Bob Mayer, Hugh Howey, Joanna Penn, and Kristine Kathryn Rusch have all basically been saying the same thing. Focus on your craft and turning out quality novels.
This book does a great job in laying out the outline for how to do this in a smart way. You could find this information in a number of other books out there, many of which I have read, but this is a great place to start. These guys tell you what has worked for them and also what has not. They make the material interesting and fun. Now go get it!
