Présentation de l'éditeur

"This book actually made me cry at the end and that is unusual for a non-fiction book. It just gave me the validation as a writer that I've never had before. Seldom do I run across other writers in person and so reading Mark's book really was a confidence booster. I recommend this book to all writers especially those who are new. It's the added boost we all need to see our little "babies" rise from the literary crib to adulthood."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good for Beginning Writers 1 avril 2012
Par Benjamin Young - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
While I already knew most of the points in this book, it's still a good read for self-published writers. It is especially good for writers just starting off as it dispels some myths about self-publishing.

If there are two things to learn from this books, they are:
1.) Write the best book you can
2.) Self-publish on as many platforms as possible

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A one-stop shop! 1 septembre 2012

After attending Mark's workshop at the RWA National Convention, I decided to read this book and learn even more about E-Book Publishing. I'm really glad I did, because I've picked up on some great suggestions to make things a whole lot easier. Let's face it, for many of us there's so much to learn that it's overwhelming. For an author who's been in the game for a while, it's a good way to reinforce already learned secrets. But for the newbie writer, this book is a one-stop shop!
An important point Mr. Coker made time and time again - so I want to reiterate - selling e-books won't happen overnight. It's takes time to build your career. But on the virtual bookshelves today, we really do have the time.

This is well-written advice for the novice and seasoned writer. I appreciated the charts that described the book selling cycles and how they can work for the author. As a result, it changed how I view pulling my books off the market!

The future of self publishing authors is a bright one. This book helped me to see that.

Of Mr. Coker's three "How to ebook" ebooks, I think this one was the most informative to me. It opened my eyes to the online publishing world complete with new terms and descriptions. I am much better prepared to enter the world of online publishing then I was before reading this book. Thank you Mr. Coker for making this available for free to a newbie like me.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Learn E-book Publishing Success from a Master 11 mai 2012
Par Michael Edwards - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a gem of a book for the price (free on Smashwords). It's a good read for aspiring authors who are just starting to self-publish and need some guidance getting started in the seemingly chaotic, unorganized, and ever-expanding galaxy of the self-publishing industry. As founder of Smashwords.com, Mark Coker leans heavily on Smashwords' self-publishing platform to help the reader understand what it takes to publish and distribute an e-book(s) successfully. The book complements his other free companion pieces, the "Smashwords Book Marketing Guide" and "Smashwords Style Guide." The three books together are great primers for using Smashwords and leveraging it as a distribution and marketing tool.

Coker's book offers 28 secrets to publishing a successful e-book. Some "secrets" are common sense, and the book doesn't go into great deal on how to take advantage of them. The biggest "secret" to success is to write a great book that resonates with readers, but Coker doesn't explain how to do it. That's up to you. He does, however, generally point writers in the right direction, getting them to think about the different elements of self-publishing success. For example, he suggests writers think beyond the price to generate sales. Should a book be priced at $0.99 or $9.99? It depends on the writer's objective. Price is just one aspect of book sales an author should consider.

Coker does not offer as many specifics in this book as he did in his marketing and style guides, but I appreciate the holistic view of self-publishing he offers. Experienced self-published authors may have a few "duh" moments when something strikes them as common sense. Nevertheless, it's worthwhile for any writer to read this book and learn from one of the masters of the self-publishing industry.

I give Coker's book five stars and highly recommend it to all writers, including those interested in traditional publishing who might be persuaded to self-publish after reading the book. If nothing else, the price point -- free -- should be an incentive.
