As an avid reader and listener I love self published books because they tend to be inexpensive. I do not have the storytelling talent to be an author of fiction, but despite his lack of college Wayne Stinnett does. This book is his story of how in three years he has gone from driving trucks for a living to making much more money self publishing through Amazon ten novels, nine in his wonderful Caribbean Adventures/Jesse McDermitt series and one so far in his new Caribbean Thriller/Charity Styles series. Stinnett is a wonderful storyteller and I recommend all of his books.
Stinnett also self publishes Audible versions of all of his books which are $1.99 each if you buy the Kindle version (and if you have Kindle Unlimited you can borrow the Kindle version for free and get the Audible version for $1.99). Kindle Unlimited costs $9.99 per month but Amazon usually puts one full year on sale each summer for about $70.
This book is a combination of an introduction how to self publish and a pep talk to potential self publishers. It is utterly fascinating. He also covers audiobooks. Nick Sullivan, one of the best, narrates all of his audiobooks.
Blue Collar to No Collar is a wonderful little non-fiction. I does not cover some of the people who have become wealthy through self publishing. There are many. Two of my favorite authors other than Stinnett, Mark Dawson and Nick Spalding, have also been major self publishing successes. In addition, two well established authors, Barry Eisler and Joe (J.A.) Konrath, now self publish.
