Overview

Many books that claim to teach you about independent publishing are written by people who have never written anything but how-to books. This is not a how-to book, and it was written by someone who lives and dies by the craft of writing every day.
Best-selling author Bernard Schaffer has produced a Kindle Top 100 book, internationally ranked Number One titles in multiple categories, and been an invited speaker on the topic of independent writing and publishing.
This is his personal manifesto of the craft. A series of rules and guidelines designed to assist both experienced veterans and those who are just starting out. The first ten rules listed in The Manifesto caused an internet sensation when they were posted on the author's blog. Now, readers can find the complete list, including information not available anywhere else.
