5.0 von 5 Sternen Five out of Five stars! 23. Juni 2013
Von Michael Loring - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Before starting this review, I want to say I realize this is not my usual type of book to review. My usual books are Fiction novels or short stories, but I felt the need to review and share this book simply because it is AWESOME.

Honestly, I wish I had read this book a year ago. I had downloaded it during one of its free promotions right before publishing my first novel. It had been recommended to me from one of the many publishers that sent me a rejection letter. At the time I was just like, "Alright, I'll give it a quick look-see" but got caught up in my book's publication not too long afterwards. I had essentially forgotten about this book until a few nights ago when perusing my Kindle book list and saw it. I thought I'd give it a quick read, thinking I could get a few helpful tips to help promote my stories better. Boy, I was unprepared for just how much help this book provides!

From simple advice on what to do before officially publishing your book (indie or not) to complex strategies on how to increase sales within a short period of time, this book has it all. Every self-published author should pick this book up, especially if you're new and aren't a hundred percent sure where the world of publishing stands at the moment. It tells you where to go to create your platform, great websites to check out to help promote your novel, and interesting stories about the author's personal experiences as an indie writer.

For the newbie and the veteran looking for some new ideas on marketing: this is the book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Indie-Publishing How-To Book I Have Read 28. November 2012
Von Jonathon K - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I have read a number of how-to books on indie and self-publishing. Most of them offer such gems such as "get on a Top 100 list," "sell to people you know," or "use twitter" with no advice just how to do any of those things. This is the first book I have read that offers concrete advice and steps to use in order to achieve the goal of every author, that is, to have people read his or her book.

There are a few more motivational-type chapters, such as the one on a ghost and one on Santa Claus, but the meat in this book, in my opinion, are the chapters that give specific advice or give resources where budding authors can get help. For example, one topic that seems to be an ongoing topic in Amazon's author forums is how to get reviews. Not only does the author stress the importance of getting reviews and gives some general tactics, he gives 16 sources that offer reviews.

This seems to be the author's methodology: give advice, then give the means to follow that advice. While several other books stress the need for a good book cover, the author delves deeper. He gives resources for an author to make his or her cover as well as where to get it professionally done at a reasonable cost. And if an author decides to go it alone, he talks about specifics such as colors, text, and all the things that go into a good cover. He also hits on one thing I haven't seen elsewhere. On Amazon part of the marketing is when a person buys a book, thumbnails of other books that were bought by people who also bought the subject book pop up. Those thumbnails have to look good, and some full-size covers that look great are not so great as a thumbnail. The author even gives some visual examples of this, showing a progression of thumbnails that go from poor to eye-catching.

This, in a nutshell, is what I like about this book. Other authors merely write "create a good cover." This author explains just how to do that. With his checklists, resources, and advice, the author has written the most complete and useful how-to book on writing and publishing a book that I have read. Any author, whether established or just starting out, should read this book and take it to heart.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Strong Emotional Response to the Book 4. August 2012
Von Scott Moon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I downloaded this book after being bounced around several blogs while I was seeking a book reviewer. Once I started reading, I devoured it hungrily, tearing through the book in a day and a half, though I am a slow reader. Most of this book is outstanding and current. Here are a few random things I liked:

He shows a nice blog tour pitch that most indie authors will find useful.

There are some HTML tips that look useful, though I have not tried them yet. I found a way to put HTML in my book description from another book that is a bit different and has worked so far. Bennington's way seems like it will allow a more robust set of HTML tools.

Bennington has several good check lists that I think are insightful as well. He has some good advice about keeping the important things in life properly prioritized.

The most positive message, and one that every other publishing guru is beating into my(our) head(s), is that a writer must write a good book. In fact the message seems to be, "Write the best book you can or else!" I am a writer, and every brilliant story, or piece of a story, or snippet of dialogue I have ever written has come perilously close to being shared with whomever I could get to read it, without having even a cursory proof reading. (Because I love writing and get caught up in the moment.) So what about that novel I revised a dozen times? Not ready, a dozen times is nothing for a serious writer. How about a hundred times? So why do I claim this is the most positive message in the book? Because if good writing is the most important thing, then success is in the hands of the writer. Think about that.

Bennington (and many others giving writing advice--in books that I paid to read) state over and over to "get professionally edited" before publishing a word. So while I thought this book was good, I screamed internally every time he repeated the phrase "get professionally edited" because I am poor and have written millions of words during my long (unpublished) writing career. They say the truth hurts. They are right, whoever they are. (On a side note, I also screamed each time I found a typo, spelling error, or formatting issue in this book. But there is no perfectly edited book, ask Joe Konrath, so I will not hold it against the author.)

So, after that rant, would I buy the book again? Yes, it has some very good information. I skimmed through some of the cute stories, but did read the excerpt from his novel at the end (which is about 10 percent of the book). That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. (Just to be clear, his novel writing is good.)

Also, I did not have this review professionally edited. You will likely see mistakes in spelling, grammar, punctuation, and overall theme. Go ahead and punch me in the face, I can take it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant Analysis of How the Publishing Industry Works 6. Januar 2014
Von Angel Girl - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was trying to get my books published when Mr. Bennington was out doing his paper route (coincidentally, I delivered the same paper in almost the same area when Mr. B was just a toddler). He has a great work ethic and wants to share his knowledge with all us aspiring writers; the book is really a humanitarian act. It's also a great book for people who are deciding whether they want to become writers, because the reality of it is the work doesn't begin until after the book has been published. Mr. B unravels the mystery for those of us wishing to become authors, breaking it down into bite-size pieces to make us see there is a process and methodology to getting your name out there, separating the writers from the authors who pay all their bills from books (as opposed to other jobs). This book is a goldmine and anyone who says otherwise should just go home and take their medication.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Going Indie? This is a MUST read! 21. Mai 2012
Von ckRaggio - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Four months ago I was working towards the traditional publishing route. Three months ago, I started reading blogs from authors talking about Indie Publishing. It caught my attention and I looked further into it and came across Jeff Bennington's: The Indie Author's Guide to the Universe. Wow. I was on a line and this book gave me the information and drive to speed across it.

Bennington starts this guide by talking about the changing of the publishing world. He never says if you don't self-publish you'll be left behind, instead he gives you the facts on how it worked for him and lets you decide for yourself. For me it was a no brainer. Everything he said made so much sense. But now how do I move forward on the Indie journey? All I had to do was turn the page.

Part II, III, and IV will take you step by step through the process. What Stephen King's: ON WRITING did for me when I decided to follow my dreams and get my words on paper, Jeff Bennington's: THE INDIE AUTHOR'S GUIDE TO THE UNIVERSE lit the fire to propel me to self publish. It gave me the tools and confidence that it probably would've taken me months or longer of research to do on my own.

This book is filled with golden nuggets and bars. For the person on the publishing line, the newbie just beginning or even the midlist (because everybody can learn something from somebody). Bennington doesn't leave anything out. From creating your own blogs, to Twitter, to pricing your e-book, cover art and promotions. I could go on and on. This book has it all.

I downloaded this book two weeks ago and have already read it twice. Now I found out it's in print too! Ordered my copy and took out the highlighters. This should be on every Indie's desk.

Do NOT miss out on this book. I wish I could give it ten stars. Bravo to Jeff Bennington and thank you for all of your help!!
