Clear, Logical Info with a Personal Touch

This book is the second self publishing book I’ve read by Mike Kowis and I should have read this one first. He presents all the facts you need to know before embarking on the journey of writing and self publishing a book. The appendix includes a helpful summary chart if the 14 essential steps in the process. Mike is honest about the costs for each step and the emotional ups and downs he encountered. In the end he says that it was all worth it to achieve his life goal of writing and publishing a book and many will agree!

Straight and to the point

This was exactly what I needed, good reference material, strong content and real numbers. The author took a complex process and made it very easy to follow. I will be listening again and again.

Great Book for first time book writers.

This book was right to the point and very interesting. I have read the paperback and listened to the audible version. I am definitely going to be using this information when I complete my first book which I am going to start writing in May.

Great factual book

There is no fluff— just good practical advice he has simplified to make it less intimidating. I learned a lot from this book and it’s much better than others I have read.
