Indie Author Must-Read

As a published author looking to re-launch my writing career, I find this is a short, concise guide with plenty of advice from an author successful in the field and suggestions for further resources. I think I’ll buy the print version too so I can make notes, highlight motivational sections and have the resource lists on hand. I recommend this book for anyone who is writing and prepping a book for publishing.

Important Stuff

Great book for independent authors. It gives an excellent overview of all you’ll need to know as you enter the self publishing market. It really teaches you think for yourself in a down to earth, nuts and bolts way about how to “make it” as an independent. The road will be long and difficult, but this book will help show you the way.

Gem-filled guide to author’s mindset

I took away many great gems from this quick read. Adam Croft approaches the subject in a no-nonsense way that resonated with me. Highly recommended!

Read this early. Now would be good.

If you're a successful indie author who's doing everything right, royalties shower your inbox daily, and your author life is an dream, you don't need to read this book. If you're not quite there yet, it's a good idea to read this book (or better yet, listen to it). In fact, even if you're thinking of becoming an author (whether indie or not), this is a good place to start. Nope, it won't go into details about book marketing. It only touches on topics like advertising and costs. It skims over what other books go into depth on. But that's the point: this book is about mindset. It's what you need BEFORE you begin "all of that other stuff" (e.g. writing books, marketing, making a business out of it). It's a few hours on Audible and these few hours should "earn" you hundreds of hours in free time when you can count your royalties and analyze your ROI. Oh, and write more books.

CANNOT RECOMMEND HIGHLY ENOUGH

If you want to learn from someone who has actually walked this walk, then buy this book. There is no waffle, no faff, no repeating points over and over to pad out length. It's just straight-talking actionable advice on how to further your career as an Indie. I've listened to this twice already and will again and again.

A must-read

Adam Croft has had the sort of success most authors can only dream of. Yet, with humour and empathy, he's able to relate to those just starting out, or whose writing careers are still floundering. This down-to-earth, practical and inspiring book presents how changing the way independent publishers think about and approach their business can have potentially life-altering results.
