FREE Indie Publishing and Writing Tip Book by Edward C. Patterson

by Edward C. Patterson


Five star Publishing Book Now Offered for Free

I am currently offering my book Are You Still Submitting Your Work to a Traditional Publisher? for FREE at Smashwords in various formats.

http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/316

Be sure to select the latest version (2009) - the earlier one has been superceded on Amazon, but on Smashwords they offer all versions.

This work has been flying off the shelf (and now that it's free, they are zooming all over the place). It has 17 four and five star reviews (12 on Amazon.com). I've included the last one below.

Product Description
With the new and exciting world of Kindles and Print-on-Demand (POD), Independent Publishing is becoming an enticing choice and a viable alternative to traditional publishing. The old days of "self-publishing and vanity presses" are over. Indie Authors are giving readers a wide variety of quality reads in all genres. Are you unsure of how to go about it? Do you crave to know the best options? What are the pitfalls? From discussions of picking up the traditional process and bringing it home, to setting up files for Amazon’s Kindle and POD, "Are You Still Submitting Your Work to a Traditional Publisher?" provides tips and ideas, set-by-steps and coaching on quality control. 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.

One review (others on Amazon, Smashwords and Authors Den)

Wish I had read this first! Review by  J. Chambers
     
Having recently published my first book for the Kindle and in paperback, I wish I had read "Are You Still Submitting Your Work To A Traditional Publisher?" first. Publishing digitally or for a publish-on-demand publisher isn't rocket science, but it can be a daunting and downright intimidating process for a newbie. Mr. Patterson's book would have saved me a lot of weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth!

"Are You Still Submitting Your Work To A Traditional Publisher?" lays out a simple step-by-step process for both digital publishing and print-on-demand publishing. In addition, the author covers the post-publishing steps to market your book and increase sales. I recently bought a book for $15 on this subject, and Mr. Patterson's book is more thorough than that book.

The second part of the book is like a bonus, covering how to write. The author is obviously very experienced in writing, and he gives some valuable tips and examples based on his own writing.

If you're even thinking about publishing a book, this book is a must-read and a bargain for the price.

Enjoy. Feedback (and reviews) welcome. Better still, get your novels out there.
