In this book, Michael Hicks will teach you a lot. You must then implement what he offers. This was among the most appreciated information for me, as it is one thing to write a book, or a whole bunch of books, but if no one ever knows they exist, they'll never sell. You won't be able to share your passion you spent a year writing about, and you won't make any money, which is not necessarily the supreme goal, but wanting to earn a living from our writing is nothing to be ashamed of, either. You'll learn about The Big 6, the 10-step road map for self-publishing success, how to treat your writing business like a business, and how & where to begin. You'll learn 8 practical steps to getting your work completed (a step many aspiring writers simply never complete), and into the marketplace. Michael also discusses the all-important presentation of your book, and the crucial mistakes to avoid, mistakes which will sabotage your efforts, no matter how good your writing may be. This is a lesson every aspiring indie writer must take to heart, because, although you can't judge a book by its cover, we all do. So if you're an indie writer, at whatever stage, there is always new stuff to learn, and Michael's book is a great place to start, or serve as an adjunct to other popular indie guides by Konrath or Locke, for example. Plus, no matter where you are in your writing career, Michael has the sales numbers to back up what he has to say in this book. There's no arguing with his expertise in that area. He's not a guru making all his money selling you a bridge; he's making his money from his WRITING, and wants to share this knowledge.
