Joel, your teaching materials are tremendous help to me. They cover virtually every area I need.

Joseph P., Chicago, IL

Your advice is a tremendous help to independent publishers but will help all authors who want their books to succeed.

Mike Larsen, Larsen-Pomada Literary Agency, San Francisco, CA

I cannot say enough about Joel. Every day I’m in awe at how he shows one how to make the self-publishing process simple.

Sylvia Hubbard, Founder of The Michigan Literary Network, Detroit, MI

I have been able to go from being stuck and not knowing what to do with my completed manuscript, to having a well-prepared book that is ready for self-pub.

Margo Gallagher, Petaluma, CA

My first book, The Book of Palms, just won the IPBA Benjamin Franklin “Book of the Year Awards” Silver Medal for 2011. Without Joel’s help my book would never have been published. Thank you Joel!

Tom Millea, Carmel CA

I’m new to the self publishing arena and I find myself coming back to Joel’s website, information and vast resources time and time again.

Annette Elton, Longmont, Colorado

So you’ve written a book, you’ve published it—now what? If you’re lucky, you find out about Joel. He’s helped me avoid many of the pitfalls of self-publishing, from layout mistakes in ebooks to acting gauche while you’re trying to get the word out.

Henning Bauer, San Francisco, CA

Joel does a spectacular job of creating an overall perspective, combined with the best practices, details, examples, steps, techniques, etc. of the specific tasks that need to be D&D–either Done by the author or Delegated to someone who does it. I appreciated his ability to effectively teach to different experience levels, without overwhelming newcomers or boring experienced types.

Roger C. Parker

You have the most comprehensive and up-to‐date blog on self-publishing on the internet. I read you all the time and always learn so much. Thank you for the work that you do—it makes my life a lot easier.

Janet Bennett, Vermillion, OH

The clarity of your writing combined with the obvious insight is what I valued most as, to me, that seemed to be your most unique trait or value.

Joe Reisinger, Placencia, Stann Creek District, Belize

Joel, thanks so much for your information which proved to be quite helpful starting out! It is so easy when you have an expert going along before you to ensure you’re making the correct steps.

PJ, Peoria USA

Joel, Your posts have become invaluable to me—I would not miss even one. Your information has expanded significantly the direction (and success) of our business. Keep up the great work!

John Harding, IDKPress, Los Angeles, CA

I have just begun receiving Joel’s blog. It is by far the most informative site for self-publishers that I have found anywhere. I look forward to receiving it each day.

Will Gibson, Pacific Grove, California

Joel is full to the brim with great information for authors of all kinds. I wouldn’t dare limit his knowledge to only those who want to self-publish. I think you’ll be impressed with the way his mind works and, not to mention, his calm approach.

Paul Larosa, CBS News, New York, NY

Joel is a fountain of useful information. And he is willing to share it time and again.

Eugene A. Miller, Mill Valley, California

If you go to only one place for help with your book, Joel’s web site should be it.

Peter S. Hart, Oakfield, New York

Joel, your teaching is superb!

P.I. Barrington, Los Angeles, CA

Your blog is one that I have bookmarked and subscribed to. Not only do I get timely advice as an author, but your archives are full of rich, go-to info for every publishing issue I run across.

Tony Eldridge, Forney, TX

Joel, your articles consistently deliver more comprehensive information than I could ask for. The publishing industry is fragmented and polarized as it rumbles through the biggest transition of our time, and you manage to straddle every issue.

Suzanna Stinnett, Sausalito, California

I’ve always found your articles full of wisdom; I never come away empty-handed, and considering I read an awful lot, particularly on the internet, that’s a solid compliment.

Hazel, Brisbane, Australia

Joel, when it comes to self-publishing there are very few who compare to the value, insight and clarity you provide. Yes, I bookmark many sites… but your site has a permanent hot-button on my toolbar! You’re that important to my success. Thank you.

Jaime Buckley, South Jordan, UT

Joel, I can’t tell you how happy I was to find your blog. It’s been such a help to me! In a world full of “rah rah” and “you can do it,” it has been wonderful to find so much actual PRACTICAL advice on things most others don’t talk about.

Jaimi Sorrell, Memphis, TN
