A Must for any Writer Considering the Self-Publishing Route
Dan Poynter's 'Self-Publishing Manual: How to Write, Print and Sell Your Own Book' guides you through the entire self-publishing process -- from start to finish. Not only does Poynter tell you how to self-publish your book, but he reveals the marketing process as well. In addition to Poynter's informative text, he also provides samples. Some of Poynter's samples include: a review request, press release, invoice, returns policy statement, request for quotations and other samples. The 'Self-Publishing Manual' includes an organized glossary and index to help you understand what terms mean, and to aid you in finding what you're looking for. Before receiving this book, I was considering self-publishing the second edition of my writer's reference book, and I was scouring the Internet for all the self-publishing information I could find, but now that I have Poynter's self-publishing manual I have everything I need right in front of me, and I've learned a whole lot more about the process of self-publishing, such as why I should self-publish, the costs involved, how many books I'll need to print, where to find bar code suppliers, how to analyze my market and so much more. 'Self-Publishing Manual: How to Write, Print and Sell Your Own Book' is a valuable guide for any writer looking to self-publish his or her own book!Was this review helpful?

Self-publishers need this book
This book explains what you should and shouldn't do. What I like best is that the author explains what he did wrong and how you can prevent doing it yourself. He pulls no punches and tells the truth. There are so many details you won't believe they all fit into one book. Being in the business myself, I know this book will help you in so many ways.Was this review helpful?
