Takes the SCARY out
I thought writing a book was the hardest part. Not so. After submitting to a few agents and publishers it was evident to me that I was way over my head. Okay, self publishing could be the answer. But there are just as many pitfalls in self publishing as in traditional. Maybe more.
This book helps cut through the clutter. Coker gives concrete advice about how you can publish and market your book. What's more is he doesn't force his own enterprise (Smashwords) on the reader, but one does get the idea that Smashwords is a logical choice for novices like me.
Although I still feel overwhelmed I feel more comfortable about moving forward. Thanks for the good advice, Mark.
