The narrative kicks off with an introduction of 12 viable reasons in support of self-publishing. All information is laid out in layman's terms. It was easy to follow. Many questions on where to begin and how to get started are answered in chronological order. Helpful guidance is provided along the way to assist anyone considering publishing their first novel, be it a paperback or ebook. Many valuable resources had been compiled and were listed to include: market strategies, price schedules and contact information. Most importantly, the author helps remove the mystique about the world of publishing that's often intimidating to debut authors. I would recommend this book to any aspiring writer who has given serious consideration to publishing their first piece of literature. It's a good place to start. I offer my gratitude to NetGalley and BooksGoSocial for this digital edition in exchange for an unbiased review.

    The title tells you everything you need to know, and in keeping with that, this book itself feels inexpensive. It’s written matter of fact, like a textbook in a class you don’t care about, even though this will only be read by those who do care. There’s plenty here on why you shouldn’t use most companies, with some grudging examples at the end of those chapters that might be okay. There’s huge sections that list publishing companies, which can make for boring reading if not outright skipping.

There’s huge sections that list publishing companies, which can make for boring reading if not outright skipping. While I’m not saying it shouldn’t be here, as for reference’s sake it’s necessary, it does render an already small book even tinier. The most interesting chapter was on doing your own publicity. I don’t have anything against this book other then it’s dry and boring, but then it’s basically a reference book, not meant to be exciting. Still, it didn’t give me much of an impetus to want to read it or do anything with the info.

    If you were to type "how to self publish inexpensive books and ebooks" in the Google search bar, you would spend weeks or even months trying to figure out what option or publisher to settle for as a writer. I wish I had this book in 2014 when I was getting into self-publishing. The author does a great job of compressing information on publishing ebooks, from the publishers, their rates and the pros and cons of any option. I am still self-publishing and thanks to NetGalley for this has been such If you were to type "how to self publish inexpensive books and ebooks" in the Google search bar, you would spend weeks or even months trying to figure out what option or publisher to settle for as a writer.

    This is not a big book, but it contains a HUGE amount of good information. Mr. Allan also has an evaluation of every aspect of publishing, so this is really helpful for new authors. Since most of the info is "perishable" with change of services etc I hope the author will revise the book every year or so. This is not a big book, but it contains a HUGE amount of good information.

    This book helps author to self publish books. Although this book has covered all aspects of self-publishing, the content might not be relevant after a few years. Alan has provided Readers with his personal experience and a good list of what to do and what not do while self-publishing.

    This is a good book. Brief and very informative. I have learnt a lot from the author's experience, and will certainly apply that knowledge when the time to publish comes. This is a good book.

    All the info you need to self publish without spending hours, days or even weeks on research. Having helped authors with book promotions I know how hard it is, especially for a first time author navigating all the publishing options. In one book, William was able to compile all the neccessary info!

    There's a lot of good information about the self-publishing world. Alan provides the website for each publisher recommended as well as an overview of their services. He also indicates whether a publisher has a phone number authors can use to contact them or not. There are quite a number of names that a simple research for publishers may not have uncovered. It should be noted that while Alan makes mention of a number of publishers he did not personally test out all of them.

It should be noted that while Alan makes mention of a number of publishers he did not personally test out all of them. Therefore an author who was planning to self-publish would still need to do their own research. A good way to do that would be to start with this book as a reference point. Thanks to NetGalley who provided a free copy of this book for my honest review.
