The subtitle for this book is "Everything you need to know to write, publish, promote and sell your own book," and it truly does cover everything. From getting your ideas, to writing, to taking your author photo, to securing ISBNs, to filing tax forms, to promoting your book- everything is covered here.

I actually gave up on this book 36% in, because it was such heavy going. It's not the kind of book I recommend reading cover-to-cover, it is definitely more of a reference book. I would buy the paperback (because I much prefer hard copy non-fiction to Kindle non-fiction) and keep it on my desk as I wrote, referring to it at each stage throughout the self-publishing process, if I was anything more than a lowly reviewer!

The book is very heavily focused on printing your book, and getting it into bookstores. That may have been fine in 2010, when this fifth edition was released, but I think it's a little out-of-date now. All self-published authors that I know... Read more
There are a lot of books available about self-publishing today. What there is not a lot of are books written by people who have actually done it more than once with good success. Marilyn Ross and Sue Collier write about the whole self-publishing industry from their vast experience.

It is one thing to study and research a topic and then write about it. It is entirely different with this topic. You can't simply study the subject and then write about it. In order to really understand it, as well as give genuine guidance you must self-publish your own books. This is one area where experience and practice outweigh research and study.

What I love about this book is it's breadth of detail in all the areas you need to know about in order to self-publish successfully today. The publishing industry is changing by the day. How do you, a writer, stay up on the changes? Not to mention learn how to discern what areas you can do it yourself. While outsourcing the things you... Read more
This is a no-nonsense, down-to-the-last-detail reference book on self-publishing. I bought a much older edition when I first attempted self-publication 20 years ago. With the valuable advice and information from Tom and Marilyn Ross, I managed to roll out 2 books. I left the scene due to family commitment. Since then, the book has been completely re-written and with so many years of experience on the topic, it's not surprising that Ross and Collier could produce such an indispensable reference for newbies and people like me who are making a comeback.

It's a thick book divided into 6 parts:
1. Today's Publishing Scene
2. Start Up Considerations
3. Creating A Quality Product
4. Killer PR
5. Selling Books
6. Propelling Your Business Through The Stratosphere

I guess most of us can skip Part 6 for now, but the authors are really quite down-to-earth, encouraging without being over-optimistic and what I like most about this book over many... Read more
