Publisher's Summary

This isn't the Holy Grail of indie publishing, this is some dude, (me), telling you how I make money on Kindle.
There aren't any tricks or magic formulas in this one. There isn't even an elaborate tale of how I just cashed in a million from my yarns.
No, I haven't made a million, but I am making a living. Bit by bit, it's coming along. And that's how it should be. Bit by bit.
This book is about getting down to what matters, and that is making an honest writer out of you. Does that mean I'm advocating myself as an honest soul? No, I'm evil remember! What I'm trying to do is show you that if your passion is writing and telling a damn good story then this will be the book for you.
I'll tell you about my experiences in the self-publishing world and how it takes a whole lot more than catchy covers and keywords to get your book to the best sellers. It also takes more than one book. It might take 10. It took seven for me and even then I wasn't' making millions and still aren't. But am I happy with my progress? Damn right. Am I paying bills? Yes Sir! Am I a millionaire? No, I am not! Does it matter? No! If you want to earn money as a writer, you need to write and be thankful for every book you sell. It's not a race and I'll show you why in this book.
Don't trust those evil so-called authors who promote misleading titles and game the system. It's all about the books and keeping those lovely people we call our listeners happy. Fail in that, and you can suck on a coconut!

Great, Humourous How-To for Writers

This was really a great book. Though most of the writing I do is technical and professional related, I still find that I gain something from reading or listening to books like this one.
I must say that I was not expecting what I got... A blunt, humorous how-to for anyone interested in getting their written work out to the masses. Anyone interested in writing will not only get some useful information from this book, but will have a good time in the process.
I was surprised how young the author was as well. It took a lot of skill and talent for something that flowed as well as this did. This was definitely a worthwhile read.
The narrator was also top-notch. He brought the already good listen to life with his animated tone throughout the book.
5 Stars!

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

This was an interesting listen. I'm not 100% sure it fits audio, but the narrator really helped bring this to life in so many ways. I think that if I had picked it up as a book it would have been one of those I wouldn't continue with in, in big chunks, I'd prob skin sections, but that's the content, rather than the narrator and as an audio you don't really get the option to skip. haha

Jay had a fab voice and although sometimes the 'internal narrator' of the author is condescending, he gets a pass from me for it. It's full of life and doesn't make you feel bad. It does have some great tips in here, and worth a listen for those alone.

Well worth a listen :)
