Didn't find it helpful at all and seemed to be filled with a lot of repetitive information that you can find on dozens of how to articles on the internet. Was very disappointed by it.

HASH(0xaf813798) out of 5 stars Quick, succinct, and to the point Oct. 8 2012
By Kathleen Valentine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This excellent little book can be read in an hour or so and it covers all the points that aspiring e-authors ought to know. Victorine starts out with the most important advice at all - write a good book! She follows up with advice on how to do that, how to polish it up, how to find editors, beta readers, and other support. She gives an excellent little tutorial on the elements of well-written books including creating interesting characters and how plot arcs work. She ties this into how to GIVE reviews. She also spends some time on explaining the different genres which I found very helpful.

In the section on marketing (do not skip ahead to that!) she discusses her own experiences with publicity, blogging, social media, and more. She ends with a chapter on her own journey as an e-author. Her writing is clear, compact with enough examples to make her point but not so many that you get bored. Great information, clearly stated, with positive encouragement.

HASH(0xaf8139e4) out of 5 stars Good advice! Nov. 4 2012
By Jennifer Shirk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author makes no magic promises or shares any special secrets in this book. There is just some good practical advice and things to keep in mind when publishing. She also shares what worked and didn't work for her. I found myself nodding my head at alot of what she said. A good pithy advice book
HASH(0xaf813c24) out of 5 stars Informative and Well Written Nov. 26 2012
By T. R. Hale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read or skimmed through a few of these books 'cause the whole e-book publishing and marketing is new to most people, and found this one is pretty good. In fact, it's the only one that I bothered to finish. I liked her no bs approach where she emphasizes that writing and selling e-books is about hard work and not some get-rich-quick formula. There are currently a lot of publishing snake oil salesman out there right now who will try to make you believe it's easy and you can make quick, easy money, and lots of it. Anyone who tells you that is just trying to sell you something. A book, a membership, a DVD set, etc. The first half of this book goes over writing and her writing approach and the second half is how she approached marketing, her experience, what worked for her and what didn't. At this point, so early in the self-publishing game, no one is really an expert but people can offer you their individual experience with it, which is what she does in this book. I like that the author took the time to craft this like a book. I purchased one of these self-publishing know-how books and it was hundreds of blog entries that were wordy and extraneous, and tough to get through. In fact, I think it was 1,000 page long, and most of the information was completely outdated and only worked for traditional publishing. There could have been a few valuable nuggets buried in there, but expecting me to slog through 1,000 pages to find them is ridiculous and false advertising.

The first half of the book...ok, the author says the importance of reading it and that you shouldn't skip ahead...but, I did. It did seem valuable for someone who is newly starting out (only been writing for a few years), but it was all info. I've read before...which, is no slight on the book. I didn't buy it for writing advice. What I'm saying is, you can either buy it for just the marketing or just the writing advice, or both. One thing I appreciated about the book is there was no flowery, page-filler hype. I got one self-publishing e-book for free and it was probably 49 pages of page-filler hype about how you would get rich selling e-books, and about 1 page worth of actual information. Of course, it was just trying to get you invested in a club where you would spend $300.

I think the best some of these books can offer is a personal perspective on what they did to achieve their success, and gathering what information they offer to figure out what works best for you. What was great about this book is she got to the point, she didn't try to sugar coat anything, and she took the time to actually craft a book that read easily and quick. I also liked how she talked about her process of how she wrote a book in a week, realized it sucked and then spent 4 years in critique groups, working to rewrite the book until it was nothing like the original. This makes me trust that she takes her work seriously and she's not going to just serve people something she wrote up overnight. All in all it was a quick, easy, enjoyable, informative read.
HASH(0xaf813dc8) out of 5 stars Must read for all indie authors. Here's the info you really want and need to know. Best investment you can make in your career Oct. 4 2015
By Joe - Published on Amazon.com

All indie authors need to read this book. Ms. Lieske has taken the time to give you an inside look at what you need to do to be successful as an indie author. She answers all the questions she gets asked repeatedly by indie authors, and covers every aspect of being an indie writer.

I found it very helpful and was able to put much of her advise into use immediately upon reading it. Her info was most helpful and informative. She holds the unique position of rising to NY Times Best-Selling Author with her first-ever written novel, and shows you what that was like.

One piece of info I learned from her was that I probably was hurting the sale and ranking of my own book by clicking on its Amazon link to check it for new reviews and ranking info a couple of times a day. She tells you why this is true in her book.
HASH(0xaf813c9c) out of 5 stars Useful perspective on the art and the chemistry of writing and selling a good book Oct. 8 2015
By David Workman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I like this little book. I was interested in Lieske's advice on marketing your good book after you've written and published it. She doesn't provide a marketing how-to checklist. Rather, she offers perspective based on her own experience and that of other successful authors whom she knows. Much of her emphasis is on how to WRITE a good story, not how to sell it after you're published. She offers her own take on the mysterious chemistry between author and reader, and why some very good books don't live up to sales hopes and expectations. She also shares what she has learned about price, giveaways, and freebies. I have a feeling this may be one of those books I go back to from time to time.
