Edward C. Patterson has successfully published eight Indie works with nine in the pipeline. In addition to the title article, this work includes three other craft discussions: "Writing Good Stories","The Novelization Process", and "Revision vs. Re-Vision", an extensive guide to revising a novel. Whether you are new to publishing or an established author, the opinions expressed and experiences shared in this book should stimulate your curiosity and provide answers to questions you might not have asked.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 great motivation for the wanna-be author 23 décembre 2008
Par Dennis Batchelder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Edward Patterson has put together an encouraging little guide to getting your novel written and revised. Then he walks you through the necessary steps for getting published on Kindle and CreateSpace, and gives some good advice on promoting your newly-published work.

At least three audiences will enjoy this book: those who have been talking for years about writing that book but need some encouragement to get off their duffs and get it done; those who have recently published and are looking for new ways to promote; and those who want to see what's happening inside an author's head.

I belong to the third category: I met Edward on an Amazon thriller "Shameless self-promtion" discussion thread, and I've had the pleasure of reading many of his little gems of wisdom as they were birthed in discussion posts. This book strings those gems together and presents them, giving us an insight into how Patterson can actually crank out eight novels a year.

Patterson's advice comes sprinkled with personal stories and lessons he learned. He writes directly to you the author, sometimes praising and other times damning you for your writing sins. In all cases, his sense of humor and personal accomplishments shine through.

If you're thinking of writing a book, if you're tired of the traditional publisher slush-piles, if you want to improve your writing or your promotions, or if you want to see how wacky authors think, get this book and learn. You won't be sorry.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Introduction! 31 janvier 2009
Par Michael J. Mcfadden - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Edward Patterson does a truly excellent job of opening up the world of electronic publishing to those who are interested but afraid to stick their toes in the water.

He introduces the concept by showing how and why such publication is not only a valid alternative to the "Dead Tree" publishers, but may even be the preferred medium for certain books. Then, in a very carefully and clearly written style reminiscent of the "Complete Idiots' Guides" he lays out the step-by-step details of how one can dip those toes in and then dive in and swim without fear of drowning. If I had read this book earlier it would have saved me untold hours of Googling and worrying about my first attempts at navigating the intricacies of Amazon's Kindle submission system and would have resulted in a far better setup with regard to such important niceties as using the various search fields to best effect.

I would recommend this book without a moment's hesitation to ANYONE who is new to the field of electronic publication as well as to those who are already in the swim but would like to check to see what they may be missing in the details.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Should be required reading for any who want to self-publish at Amazon 8 juillet 2009

In "Are You Still Submitting Your Work To a Traditional Publisher?", Edward C. Patterson not only gives us the benefit of his years of experience and the publishing of a dozen (and counting) books, but he outlines specific steps and techniques to take advantage of today's opportunities for self-publishers.

But first, he gives some of the best advice to writers I've ever read, when he gets right to the heart of a problem that threatens all writers: Too many believe their work is golden, that it springs forth from their heads ready for publication, without need of rewriting, editing, or revision.

"In fact", Mr. Patterson says, "most writers think they are perfection - first draft is magic, immaculate - eat your heart out, Stephen King."

The result is that too many books are published before they are ready; contributing to the ever-growing public perception that self-published equals poor quality.

If your work is poor, mediocre, or even just good, don't publish, Mr. Patterson says, because the first readers will proclaim your stuff "crap", and you will have blown your best opportunity. It also hurts all other authors when some think they are ready for prime time when they are not.

Any who doubt the truth of that statement, should take a look at reviews of self-published books right here on Amazon, which, far too often, downgrade, and sometimes even declare a book unreadable, because of errors and poor editing.

If you are about to independently publish, Mr. Patterson says, you should get your mind in order. You will no longer get rejection notices (as with a traditional publisher), but without the proper mindset, you'll still get rejection... public rejection.

It isn't easy, he agrees, to take off your writer's hat and look at your own work objectively, but it must be done. He then proceeds to tell us how to do it... and how to find editors and beta readers to help.

He spells out names and discussion groups, and tells us how and where to get involved to get the help we need.

Some of the editing techniques he describes are things we learned in school - or should have - others are his own, born of his experiences, and others are made possible by today's technology... such as putting your work on a Kindle, looking at it in different type sizes, and having it read your own words back to you.

When we have done all the above, and our work is really and truly ready for publication, he gives names and contacts for several different self-publishing plans and programs, explains their ups and downs, and gives advice on how to decide among them.

He also tells how to write a Press Release and where to get it published, and how to get the best publicity of all... good reviews of our books.

Then we get to real gold... the part that's worth the price of this book many times over even if you are an excellent writer with a flawless manuscript.

That's the PATTERSON Recipe for self-publishing success.

Actually, he didn't say that... He calls it publishing without pain.

I added the last half of that sentence... because that's what I think it is.

Starting with your MS Word manuscript - it's squeaky clean now, remember? - he steps you through publishing for the Kindle; creating an eBook to be published on MobiPocket; and publishing a paperback book on Amazon's CreateSpace.

Along the way, he teaches us how to use the tools at Lulu.com, which must be the world's most efficient publishing program.

I've been around this business a long time; you can believe me when I say that this information can save you hundreds of dollars worth of time.

I liked this book so much that I purchased a second copy... the paperback edition, even though I already had the Kindle edition.

If I had my way, I'd make this book required reading for anyone who wants to self-publish on Amazon.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very useful guide to the small / self publisher 13 avril 2009
Par CJ - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a easily accessible guide for the writer with a project ready to go or close to completion. It's a well written guide put together by someone who knows the turf well, having publishing a mighty number of his own books.

One of the first things I noticed was the intimacy of tone. The writer addresses the reader in a conversational fashion - this is readily acceptable and helps make his advice clear.

The most up to date technology is included, most notably Kindle. As this way of downloading books is daunting to the less technically inclined (such as myself) his step by step approach is practical and takes away the more intimidating aspects technology can bring.

I'm taking a star away because this doesn't look at all the options open to self publishers, but that's a bit of a minor point given that this information is available elsewhere.

Overall, highly recommended.

CreateSpace will not only POD your book with no minimum purchase, give you an ISBN, but provide you with an Amazon Product page, pricing discounts (not at your cost), set up Search Inside the Book, give you options for Suggested Retail Pricing (latitude), give you a separate web page for your directed sales and specialized discounts, great pricing on author books, distribution to ALL Amazon network sites including Target and overseas markets. Plus, all the other perks of an Amazon product page (tags, reader reviews, blogspace). &quote;
