    In all honesty it has been a long time since I finished reading an entire book. This book on self-publishing by author Rick Smith is an absolute must for anyone looking into publishing their own book.

    The book takes you from start to finish from generating ideas to actually publishing and marketing your book. There isn't a book like this because the author definitely walks the talk. He is so experienced and knows what he's talking about. One of the strategies for marketing that he mentions inside the book is absolutely killer. I have done similar strategies that have been very effective but with this method that Smith provides will definitely skyrocket my sales.

    The book was recommended by a friend such a long time ago when I was getting started publishing, but I did not listen. The book was once again recommended by the same friend and I absolutely regret not taking his word the first time. I am definitely going to keep coming back to reference this book because it's like a personal publishing Bible.

    If I could give you (an aspiring/current author) any advice I would have to say that don't waste your time on any other program or book. This book right here is the real deal. Whether you're writing fiction or nonfiction the author will give you his personal method on how to organize yourself on publishing your bestseller.

    Amazon makes it easy to publish a CreateSpace Print-on-Demand Paperback or a Kindle ebook. That is, their publishing interface is easy to follow and fill out. And if that's all there was to publishing, we'd all be making a good living as authors. Unfortunately, that's only one tiny part of what it takes to SELL a book.

    This useful guide will help you pick a topic to write about, and it will give you some pointers on how to write productively. It will help you with the all-important and sometimes difficult formatting of your book, and designing your cover or finding someone to do it for you.

    This book also walks you through Amazon's Publishing interfaces, though they really are pretty self-explanatory.

    OK - now you've written your book and published it. So you're done and can sit back and let Amazon sell it for you. Right?

    No, unfortunately you'll also have to do some marketing work too. Fortunately this book covers that base too, from how to price your book to how to get book reviews and how to write your all-important Product Description - which you are going to have to think of as a sales pitch.

    They also include a list of additional resources - a great bonus!

    First of all, I wish I had found this great book that is helpful in so many ways. If you want to be an author and get your book out there in the world, I highly suggest you BUY THIS BOOK!

    There are many books on the subject of how to publish your book. This one is easy to understand and takes you through every single step. Many things you may already know but there are also helpful suggestions on how to get through the process in formatting your book for better reviews.

    There are helpful hints on using keywords and marketing strategies and groups to join to help make your book a success. I plan on using all of this wonderful information that Rick Smith has offered in this book to my advantage.

    Createspace and Kindle Self-Publishing Masterclass is a book I will keep in my library and everytime I write a book, I will go through it again and follow it completely. There is a lot that goes into writing and publishing a book and it can be overwhelming. Why wouldn't you want every advantage to make it as easy as possible?

    5 stars and thank you for letting me know its never too late to go back and make my book perfect.

    Extremely helpful guidebook to self-publishing. This book has everything you need to know to start your own self-publishing empire -- from writing, to publishing, to marketing. Yes, marketing. You know, that one teeny tiny thing that most authors forget about or feign ignorance of. If you're like me, then that marketing step won't come naturally to you -- unless you check out this book! Highly recommended!

    5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Complete, Enlightening Approach to Self-Publishing 6 janvier 2014
    Par Joseph G. Wick - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
    Lately I have been reading a number of books on creating and publishing non-fiction books on Kindle. Most of them give pretty much the same advice, some longer, some shorter. This book is well-written, more opinionated, more complete, and the best I’ve read so far.

    If you’re reading this, you know what Kindle editions are. Createspace is also owned by Amazon and produces paperback books by “print on demand” technology. The result is that if you are also published through Createspace you can sell paper versions of your Kindle e-book. The author points out that to publish first on Kindle, then Createspace, is harder than adjusting your book and uploading to Createspace first, and then, from there, generating the Kindle edition.

    The author’s main theme is that you should try to produce a book for Createspace and Kindle at the same time. Doing a Createspace book makes the Kindle edition follow on very easily and naturally. A friend of mine has tried this and even a year after publishing he says he gets about 50% of sales from each source. Incidentally, this works for fiction as well as non-fiction although the author of this book has experience only with non-fiction.

    On balance the author’s theme is very persuasive. Moreover, he gives lots of tools, perhaps too many. He gives advice running the gamut from picking a chair in which to write all the way to preparation of your cover and manuscript and uploading it. He covers the usual material on researching key words to see what topics sell best. He goes over the usual material on optimizing your key words, title, covers, and book description. He discusses marketing and the value of social networks – again ground covered by others. Yet, he has some opinions at variance with the majority of writers on this topic. I tend, in the absence of experimentation, to believe his experience and reasoning.

    The advice appears to be very sound, and is just enough different from some of the prevailing conventional wisdom to be provocative. The result is that this book helps you think through all the stages of publishing your book and the choices you can make. It should be in your writer’s library along with some of its competitors.

    If I have any criticism, it is that certain portions of his book are TOO detailed and complete. It is sneakily encyclopedic. For instance, he covers how to format and upload your book to Createspace (and Kindle too) in immense detail, and this is right after telling you how you might come up with a topic and set yourself up to write. Obviously, this book is also a reference and would be read several times, at least in part, as you progress with your project.

    One very nice feature is the author’s including lots of links and references to useful web sites that most of the authors of similar books have not included. And, he lists some neat tools for writing which most do not mention such as a program called “Evernote.”

    So far I have not seen a book on self-publishing through Amazon which is as complete and useful as a permanent reference as well as an introduction to the entire process from wish to royalty.

    When I published my first Kindle book, I was really wet behind the ears in the business of writing and marketing. i found the whole process a bit of a struggle and surprisingly stressful. I just wish Rick's book had been around sooner! All the guidance you will ever need, from finding and researching an idea, organising your time to maximise writing output, publishing your book in two formats and getting the whole show firmly on the road to success, is included in this book. Well-written and thoroughly researched, once you've bought a copy, this gem will be your bible for the rest of your eBook-writing life.

    The burgeoning sub-genre of How To Guides for independent authors has a welcome new addition in author Rick Smith's handy book detailing the ins and outs of self-publishing to Amazon's KDP platform. At 200 pages plus this is one of the more substantial titles and Mr. Smith knows his stuff. Yes, there is a lot of free information on line for novices but nothing beats having so much of it in one place. There is a lot of unique knowledge here. I especially liked the section on formatting - my least favorite chore as a KDP author. This book is perfect for people new to KDP who are serious about presenting their work in the best way possible. For this purpose, I wholeheartedly recommend this guide. A solid 5 Stars.

    5.0 étoiles sur 5 Now I can breathe! 22 janvier 2014
    Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

    I am excited about self-publishing my first book, but the thought of taking the actual step of uploading it has been daunting.

    Until I read this book. Now I can breathe!

    Createspace and Kindle Self-Publishing Masterclass provides a thorough understanding of every step in the self-publishing process--from writing to uploading on Amazon.

    Rick not only explains the how-to but also the why-to of the different steps. He covers every detail so that there will be (or should be) no unpleasant surprises, and he manages to do this without making me feel like an idiot.

    All his tips are logical, but many of them are things that wouldn't occur to me until I was in the midst of a melt-down.
    For example, he suggests devoting an entire uninterrupted day to the process--I have to admit, I doubt I would have had the foresight to do that.

    Rick has answered every single question I had, and many that I didn't know I had.

    I now have a firm idea of what I need to do before I sit down to upload my book so that when the day comes, I don't pull out all my hair and bite my poor husband's head off! My husband, especially, is very grateful to Rick!

    I've read about 10 books in the ebook self-publishing category since, as an established writer, I'm serious about this business. Rick Smith has covered the workings of both CreateSpace and Kindle quite thoroughly, although a few nuts and bolts might have been left out. After all, this business is constantly changing. I know I will succeed faster because of what I've learned in this book, and thanks to Rick for that. It truly is a MASTERCLASS. No hype, no guessing, just solid instruction.
