We’re all taking time off for the holidays this week. On Wednesday we’ll have a new post from Contributing Writer Jason Kong on how to improve your fiction marketing with peer collaboration, you won’t want to miss that.
But in the meantime, I’ve got a couple of short “news” items for you.
The Self-Publisher’s Ultimate Resource Guide Going Strong, Launch Offer Still Available
After opening at #1 in its category on Amazon.com on publication day, my new book created with coauthor Betty Sargent, is still at #1 in ebook directories, and hitting #1 in ebooks about books and publishing occasionally. That’s a great result straight out of the gate.
Here are some of the things people are saying about the book on Amazon:
“A must-have for indie authors… It would have saved me countless hours of research. Thank you to the authors for putting together all their years of experience and sharing it.”—Sherry Torgent
“I’d been looking for a book like this for a long time… Thoughtfully curated, comprehensive, and beautifully presented.”—Alice Peck
“My favorite part is being able to just click through directly to the websites. Trolling the listings has been an education in itself.”—Truhart
“The world of (self-publishing) is scary, unexplored territory for 99% of us—this e-book can be your Fodor’s Guide.”—John Emmerling
“There’s a treasure trove of valuable information in this guide, not just for those new to the business, but for industry veterans as well.”—Beth Rashbaum
“Finally, one book with everything a writer needs to self publish their work.”—KKoblan
“This reference guide is one every indie authors will want to keep on their shelf for easy access—it’s not a book you read from front to back—it’s a manual you need to keep going back to, over and over again!”—Ron Callari
“Finally… a user friendly, definitive guide for authors by two top tier publishing professionals.”—Nancy Nigrosh
“Joel hits a home run here. Every author needs help now days and this resource leads them in the right direction.”—James Moushon
