MYTH!

The internet has revolutionized every business it has come into contact with, and publishing is no different.

It gives you practical, hands-on advice, sharing the very latest best practices on editing, cover design, formatting, and pricing.

It gives you proven marketing strategies that won't eat into your writing time and are actually effective at selling books. It also shares tips on platform building, blogging, and social networking, and explains which approaches are best for selling fiction versus non-fiction, and what writers should really focus on.

This new updated 2nd edition now has more options for those on a tighter budget, teaches you how toget your book into print (and why that helps selling e-books), tells you why you should start a mailing list immediately, and shares the prosand cons of going exclusive with Amazon. And that's just for starters...

Format: Kindle Edition
I just finished reading this book in 2 sessions. Not only is the information invaluable to newly beginning self publishers, but the manner in which David writes makes it so easy to read and understand. A wealth of information for every writer on all aspects of publishing, marketing your book. I also like the many interviews with many authors who share their journey and experiences in the business. A must have book in your arsenal of material on self publishing. Now, can't wait to get started on Let's Get Visible!

Format: Paperback
This book is a must read for any writer - new or old - who is looking to jump into the self publishing field. This is also a must read for anyone that has already self published and perhaps needs to redo what they have already done. Even when Mr. Gaughran didn't layout the specifics he had a resource section that directed the reader to the right place. A great read and inspiring for fledgling authors looking at the wide world of publishing.
