Self-Publishing Attack! A Do-Able Plan

Last Friday, I purchased the Kindle Edition of James Scott Bell’s book Self-Publishing Attack! The 5 Absolutely Unbreakable Laws for Creating Steady Income Publishing Your Own Books. I sat down and read it immediately and by the time I reached the end, I was inspired and feeling hyper. I always like that feeling even though on Friday, I didn’t do much with it.

Here’s the review I put on Amazon about Bell’s book:

In the past, I've discouraged many writers from taking the self-publishing route. The more I read, learn and investigate, the more I realize this is one of the best times to be a writer--BECAUSE of self-publishing and all the options available. The door is wide open. With James Scott Bell's guidance and encouragement, any writer can feel knowledgeable and certainly more confident in their attempt to self-publish. I may have been a wishy-washy believer yesterday but after reading Bell's Self-Publishing Attack!, I'm not today. I bought and read this book this morning, highlighting on every page, and can truthfully say the encouragement alone is worth the price. James Scott Bell is truly the voice of encouragement. Also, I thank him for a do-able plan of action.

That plan of action is strategic planning, prioritizing your daily/weekly tasks and setting goals and five laws that help you do it all. Sure we’ve heard most of this information before from other authors but not in the encouraging voice of James Scott Bell. Bell breaks it down for us - simplifies it. Shows us that it's do-able BY each and every one of us. Self-Publishing Attack! is the perfect title.

I have most of James Scott Bell's books on writing. I'm never disappointed in them. Check them out HERE.

Bell blogs at The Kill Zone. And for fun, take a look at his YouTubevideos.

Hum, gonna have to get this, I guess.

I'll check it out, although I'm still so intimidated by the idea of formatting and such that I'll probably still end up paying someone to do it for me :-)

I'm not surprised. Scott's PLOT AND STRUCTURE is one of my favorites.

Charles - I'm sure you know all this stuff. :)

Li - this isn't a how to format book. This books gives instruction on how to be more prolific, I think, a plan we can follow ... and why we should be out there. I don't have a clue how to format. It's all so over my head I'll have to hire someone too!

LD - I like Plot and Structure too. He seems like a great teacher.

I bought it last night and got started on it this morning while waiting for Billy Navarre's mechanic to give me the bad news about my car. I'll probably finish it while waiting for my car tomorrow. I'm like you. He's so enthusiastic it rubs off on me.

Hi Linda - I love his voice. I like reading authors that get me motivated -- fiction or NF. :) Sorry about your car.

I'll put this on my list!
