Présentation de l'éditeur

Write. Publish. Repeat.

The No-Luck-Required Guide to Publishing

In 2013, Johnny B. Truant and Sean Platt published 1.5 million words and made their full-time livings as indie authors. In Write. Publish. Repeat., they tell you exactly how they did it: how they created over 15 independent franchises across 50+ published works, how they turned their art into a logical, sustainable business, and how any independent author can do the same to build a sustainable, profitable career with their writing.

Write. Publish. Repeat. explains the current self-publishing landscape and covers the truths and myths about what it means to be an indie author now and in the foreseeable future. It explains how to create books your readers will love and will want to return to again and again. Write. Publish. Repeat. details expert methods for building story worlds, characters, and plots, understanding your market (right down to your ideal reader), using the best tools possible to capture your draft, and explains proven best practices for editing. The book also discusses covers, titles, formatting, pricing, and publishing to multiple platforms, plus a bit on getting your books into print (and why that might not be a good idea!). But most importantly, Write. Publish. Repeat. details the psychology-driven marketing plan that Sean and Johnny built to shape their stories into "products" that readers couldn't help but be drawn into -- thus almost automatically generating sales -- and explores ways that smart, business-minded writers can do the same to future-proof their careers.

This book is not a formula with an easy path to follow. It is a guidebook that will help you build a successful indie publishing career, no matter what type of writer you are ... so long as you're the type who's willing to do the work.

"Two of the best in the biz... A gem for aspiring authors."

-- Hugh Howey

"I have a pretty popular blog on self-publishing, and I've written a couple of books on the topic myself - meaning I've read a lot on the topic and come across lots of different strategies and approaches to building a loyal audience.

-- David Gaughran

Great read, thanks guys. Happy to be your 100th reviewer. If you're an Indie author and you don't get multiple tips from this book then there is seriously something wrong with you.

Great job and thanks for wrapping everything up in a fab bundle for me to consume along with my turkey and chocolates over the Christmas period.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 IMO, the best book on self-publishing. 5 décembre 2013
Par David Gaughran - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I have a pretty popular blog on self-publishing, and I've written a couple of books on the topic myself - meaning I've read a lot on the topic and come across lots of different strategies and approaches to building a loyal audience. For my money, this is the best book on self-publishing out there.

It doesn't matter if you are a beginner, someone who has published a few books, or have a lot of experience, you will get a huge amount from this book, which is jam-packed with all sorts of useful information. It's like a How To on how to build a publishing empire. I had several lightbulb moments reading this book, and I know you will too.

These guys know what they are talking about, they have published millions of words, self-published to great success, sold a series to Amazon, and built a loyal readership that will follow them anywhere.

And they tell you how to do it too. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy.

EDIT: I received an ARC of this book, but without any agreement to review, let alone give any certain type of review. I receive tons of ARCs all the time and most never even get read, let alone reviewed...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Book on Self-Publishing that I have ever read. 5 décembre 2013
Par John Ward - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
There are a lot of great things I could say about this book. It's funny. It's informative. Rather than going through a bullet point list of its many merits, let me focus on the quality that I enjoyed most.

The best thing about this book, to me, is that it is devoted to teaching you how to think. You won't find screenshots teaching you how to format your files for the different online retailers or step-by-steps walking you through how to fill out a product description. The advice in this book will not only help you today, but years from now. I feel confident saying that because the focus is on how to approach situations. It will show you what type of thinking and the attitude you should as you try to build a career. They will teach you how to CREATE opportunities (they are serious about the 'no luck' part) for yourself.

In this book, Sean, Johnny and Dave advocate a systemic and repeatable approach that takes the guesswork out of being an author. The work ethic and can-do attitude that fills every page appeals to me so much. It's inspirational and motivational. Reading the book really makes you believe that it's possible to approach a writing career as a business person instead of that guy risking everything on a roll of the dice. You don't have to hope and pray that you get lucky. There is a line in the early part of the book that says: "Success comes from hard work and the accumulation of small numbers." That is such an awesome sentence, but more than that, it's an awesome philosophy.

Ultimately, that's what this book is about. It teaches you how to win a lot of small battles that have the cumulative effect of leading you to a life of victory. If you want to learn how to make it as a self-published author, do yourself a favor and buy this book. Read this book and keep it close by so you can read it again.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent content bogged down by a long-winded presentation. 1 janvier 2014
Par Walt Morton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book has many positive 5-star reviews based on the excellence of the content which is a synthesis of a lot of the better ideas floating around over the last few years about self-promotion, marketing, and getting noticed on the internet. The authors, to their credit are hard-working writers, and hard working marketers and their effort shows in the considerable volume of work that they have online. They aren't just BS-ing about theory; you can tell they have road-tested their marketing ideas. If I were just evaluating the quality of the content I would give this book 5-stars.

On the other hand, I found the presentation to be painfully chatty and taking a very long time to get to the point. So painful I'd give it 1-star on form. There is an endless section of "prefatory matters" and three author biographies to wade through before you come to any material that might be useful and actionable.

I understand it when Stephen King in "On Writing" (a terrific book) gives a long life history before getting into the terse section of what he learned as a writer. I am willing to read King's biography -- because he's Stephen King -- but the authors here indulge in homey details about wives and work struggles that are completely irrelevant to presenting any strategies that will help a writer produce and sell books.

Possibly the book's long-winded style is derived from podcasts as a natively chatty form but (as noted by some of the other 1-star reviewers) this book could have benefitted tremendously by having an editor cut it down by 70%.

If this had been a print book any publisher would have said: "Hey, guys are you sure you need all this stuff? What about a bit more focus?" But being that the work is digital, there is little incentive to condense to the most relevant material and the authors give us all they've collectively learned on the subject. And the reader ends up working hard to find the useful gems in a mountain of verbiage.

Maybe it's old-fashioned now -- but several generations of writers (including King and a host of others) have endorsed William Strunk, Jr.'s classic work, The Elements of Style with "reminders" for writers added by E. B. White. Among these time-tested rules are two ideas that this book flagrantly violates:

 Omit Needless Words
 Place Yourself In The Background

The first, obviously, suggests writing should be edited to the most concise form, rather than the most long-winded form. The second idea is that writers should engage a topic without inserting themselves into the foreground of the story. Newspapermen understood this idea in the 20th century, but possibly the rise of blogs, podcasts and everybody being their own Lady Gaga (personal brand) has given writers permission to wallow in a kind of self-indulgence that previously would have been considered vulgar. Clearly this chatty style did not bother some of the 5-star reviewers but it bugged me and I found myself skimming for real content.

I averaged the 5-star content and the 1-star form to equal 3-stars. Despite not being a rave review, I'll admit many of the ideas in this 3-star book (once you dig them out) are more actionable than most writing books out there. For anyone thinking about writing a novel and selling it on Amazon, this book is a good place to start, though I generally prefer David Gaughan's LET'S GET VISIBLE as an introduction to the digital publishing landscape.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 3 easy steps to being an author. Write. Publish. Repeat. 3 décembre 2013
Par Liam Kingman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
One of the best books on writing ever written. If you are a fan of the Self-Publishing podcast, you will be a fan of this book.

There is no sugarcoating in this book. This is the real deal. It is a simple roadmap to a career as a writer. It is good for authors of both fiction or non-fiction. This book is by 3 guys who know their stuff about self-publishing and are not afraid to share it with you.

Thanks to the authors for a great read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fantastic resource for indie authors 3 décembre 2013
Par Scott Rank - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Love the Self-Publishing Podcast but wish that you could cut through the 30 minutes of inside jokes, discussions of the corpulent undead, or genre-specific unicorns and get to the useful content? This book is for you!

An honest look at the world of self-publishing that doesn't promise Internet Gold in 48 hours (registered trademark) in exchange for $97. Rather, it offers specific instructions on how to get launched as an indie author when starting from nothing, and an honest appraisal of the work involved. Written by guys who know their trade and have inspired me to make the dream happen.
