    If you’ve read How To Market A Book by Joanna Penn, you’ve basically read this book. A few helpful tips, but after reading her website and her other books, wasn’t worth my time. Get it if you want to try Joanna Penn out without financial commitment

    There are so many ‘How To’ books on self-publishing and how to profit from your labor that it can get all very confusing and overwhelming. It’s quite the jungle from which you can easily get lost in. I have read my fair share in this particular genre and my head is usually spinning ala Exorcism style rather than being enlightened. At the crux of it is understanding the *fundamentals* of the self-publishing world and the clarity of the content.

    With this brief primer, Joanna Penn breaks it down in a bullet by bullet point many aspects of the self-publishing world but more importantly advice for writers to keep focused and motivated, creating a battle plan on productivity and making a profit, as we’ll as helping the newbie in how to navigate the multiple social platforms to maximize exposure and marketing yourself as much as your work. She provides excellent Note Benas on topics I would have never considered: like the legalities of self-publishing, audiobooks, blogging, the pros/cons of being picked up by an agent and ebooks vs traditional publishing–and everything in between. She provides many useful resources that are free on her website and references she utilizes as a fiction author herself.

    This book, however, does not provide HOW to write a novel. Instead, I would recommend K. M. Weiland’s books on how to structure, write, plot, etc, your books. I religiously visit her very, VERY wonderful site […]
    If you’re serious about being a writer and not dreaming of becoming one–and Ms. Penn is quite serious in helping you become a published author–this is a MUST READ. ***And it’s F-R-E-E!*** As I said above, this is a very SHORT introduction and does not intimately delve into the specifics. It’s more of a foundation book. Those that have been reading self-help guides on self-publishign and marketing, this book will seem very basic. But that’s the point. It is a great starting point if you don’t want to be quickly confused or overwrought from the bombardment of information. From this novel, you can start venturing to other self-help books on publishing. I would highly recommend her other books, visiting […]and follow her twitter page for daily free advice and useful links. Ms. Penn is a vital resource for me and it should be for you. Her books will become your Self-Publishing Bible, I guarantee it.

    Joanna Penn has a knack for covering a wide berth of information in clear and concise ways. This book covers the various ways writers can make a living through their craft. If you are new to the idea of making a living through writing or to the writing industry in general, this is a perfect guide for you. However, if you already know your publishing options and other ways to create income streams through writing, reading this book may be a good refresher, but I would advise going straight to BUSINESS FOR AUTHORS.
