Top 10 Series
Hannah - love that she is a snoop...:)
Some of this book (and the series) is laugh out loud funny. Mostly because Hannah and I have the same maddening and amazing mothers.
The characters are great and stories are fun and fast paced. Love the Goldie Baer books and this series is a nice addition to fill in when I need a fun listen.
I think the audio and print versions are very different. In the audio you get to "hear" it, much in the way you hear the podcast, which is how I "met" Sean (I already knew of Johnny from online). I am used to listening to their advice audibly so spent the good part of Sunday hearing Write, Publish, Repeat and absorbing different bits than I got when reading the book.
The sales funnels. I know that they are not saying theirs are perfect (whose are?), but hearing again that these need to rock solid was a reminder to fix mine. Their description of how they "walk" readers through the process and get them more and more interested in their work was great.
It took a couple of minutes to get used to Simon reading Johnny's words, but that changeover happened very fast and Simon did a great job!
If you are a writer thinking about making a living of your work, this book may be a real eye opener. First off, they are not sugar coating the truth, you are probably not going to write a best seller right out of the gate so you better learn how to put some marketing into place if you ever want to sell more than a few copies a month.
On the other hand, their dogged determination to succeed shows all writers that it is possible. That success is hard work but possible with a solid plan and a focused goal.
A really good listen!
I have listened to the Ender series and so was surprised that this book was a different kind of story. It does have some information about the Mormon religion but not put in a preachy way at all - just as a way to add interest to the story. I was very impressed with the story (I have a brother with a minor form of CP) line as well as the ending. If you can remove yourself from the Ender series and appreciate this as a stand alone book I think you will really like it!
