Publisher's Summary

This award-winning, best-selling self-publishing guide has been re-released as a new updated and expanded 2nd edition, with 75,000 words of essays, articles, and how-to guides, as well as contributions from 30 best-selling indie authors including J. Carson Black, Bob Mayer, Debora Geary, Mark Edwards, and many more. And now it is available in audiobook format for the very first time.
"You won't make any money from self-publishing." MYTH! The Internet has revolutionized every business it has come into contact with, and publishing is no different. For the first time, these changes are handing power back to the writer. It's up to YOU if you want to profit from them.
Let's Get Digital: How to Self-Publish, and Why You Should (Updated 2nd Edition) covers everything from how the disruptive power of the Internet has changed the publishing business forever to the opportunities this has created for writers. It gives you practical, hands-on advice, sharing the very latest best practices on editing, cover design, formatting, and pricing. It gives you proven marketing strategies that won't eat into your writing time and are actually effective at selling books. It also shares tips on platform building, blogging, and social networking, and explains which approaches are best for selling fiction versus nonfiction, and what writers should really focus on.
This new updated 2nd edition now has more options for those on a tighter budget, teaches you how to get your book into print (and why that helps selling eBooks), tells you why you should start a mailing list immediately, and shares the pros and cons of going exclusive with Amazon.
And that's just for starters.

Might be great, except...

Best overview I've seen (heard), with references teasing more user aids. Information is given with humor and intelligence and it's easy to follow. Quite fascinating, comprehensive, and could be pretty helpful.

Unfortunately, I've tried every spelling of the spoken urls I can imagine and have no luck. As nearly every chapter includes such unusable "links", I'm feeling a bit cheated.

Helpful for new digital authors

Lots of tips I will use, worth the money if starting out. Wish eBook was included with audible version, so I can find resources like author exact spelling of name and URLs.

Full of info and inspiration, I'll be listening to this several times.

So, so helpful and beautifully read.

This was another right book, right time for me. Really well written and not only packed with information about self publishing but also don't with encouragement to do so. I came across it because I was searching for more books narrated by Simon, so I could listen to forever, and this one but the spot. Thanks, both of you for doing what you do with such flourish.

Good resource for anyone considering publishing

If you are thinking about publishing using a digital method or even if your heart is set on traditional publishing then this could be a valuable read. Even if it's simply to get you thinking more broadly. Towards the end is an indepth listing of writers experiences with current links to webpages. It tells of individual cases of being published via what was the untraditional path but is now becoming the norm. This book lists many resources and although the list itself may age over time the writers experiences should remain relevant.
