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 how 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 audiobook 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 audiobook 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.

Fantastic audio companion
I've already read Write. Publish. Repeat twice, but I grabbed the audiobook because it's easier for me to listen to my favorite books when I want to read them again. WPR is a quintessential book, and I've already reviewed the content itself so I won't go into that here.
The narration was great. Simon Whistler's reading style is very conversational and smooth. He delivers a lot of the humor in the story with such a straight face that it makes the the writing style even more funny than it was in the book. His pacing was excellent, and this is one of the few audiobooks that I actually listened to at regular speed. Anything faster actually hurts the experience on this book.
My only suggestion was that I did hear a lot of breaths, particularly when the narrator started sentences. It was distracting at times, but not a showstopper by any means.
I highly recommend this.
