offers some useful ideas such as adwords, keywords and social media but nothing mind blowing that I haven't read anywhere else.

Written in three logical parts, the authors explore where to start, the differences between indie/vanity/traditional press, how to write a book and the importance of craft, manuscript software, types of editing, marketing platforms, book formats, titles, cover design, the synopsis blurb, book reviews, book printers, retailers, ISBNs, DRM, audio books, translations and social media advertising.

Learn gems of information in simple steps to self-publishing, and it's great for beginners. Countless additional resources, links and suggestions take the mystery out of starting a business. If you ever wondered about self-publishing or dreamed of writing a book, then this handy manual will start you off on the right foot. The recent changes in the publishing industry have opened up a world to any author. Online powerhouses such as Amazon and reader enthusiasts at Goodreads can propel a book in a sea of millions. I found Hitz and Hart’s advice to be solid and was in line with my own experiences in the industry. I especially appreciated their focus on doing things for less cost, as there are countless companies eager to sell author marketing with little results in sales.
