I have read many books about self-publishing in the past few years and have to say how impressed I am with the incredible detail and research that went into to putting this book together.

The author doesn't merely quickly gloss over topic areas, but digs into insightful detail in various areas. I have never seen, for example, anybody (outside of selected publishers, selected booksellers and keen book nerds) take the time to properly explain an ISBN and the importance of one. Demers goes through v

Recommends it for: Anyone Wishing To Self-Publish--All You'll Need
This book is great because it tells you how to get your eBook or novel up on Amazon in, seriously, less than a couple hours! The author didn't say that, but I am.

Now, having said that, I don't believe the author would recommend that anyone actually spend only an hour publishing his or her masterpiece, but if you want to go the Indie route, The Global Indie Author: How Anyone Can Self-Publish in the U.S. and Worldwide Markets, is the ultimate how-to book for you.

This book is so informative, so t
I was fortunate enough to meet Ms. Demers at a local writer's event and to have purchased the latest copy of her book, "The Global Indie Author." I self-published a set of books many years ago without the luxury of her experience, and it was a challenge. With today's new technology and the latest options for publishing: e-books, vanity press, POD, the world of self-publishing has gotten even more complicated and complex. The adage that, "You don't know what you don't know" could be a slogan for ...more

This how-to book has helped me self-publish my novel, "Appalachian Carnival," so much so that I don't know what I would have done without it—especially when it came to formatting the book for a Kindle edition.

I've read several do-it-yourself publishing manuals, but this is by far the best. Part One spells out how easy it is to self-publish. Part Two addresses the difficulties, the controversies, the contrarieties, the downsides and upsides, even the sideward sides, of dozens of things to do and
Read the excerpt from amazon showed that this book contains some interesting stuf, but, apprently, also some things that aren't so much. So I'm still not confident this is the book I'm looking for.
Although, from what I saw, the author does try to do what she sets out to do and look at things from the perspective of an author who's not from the USA, and that's something others haven't delved into yet.
If you are going to self-publish, this is the book to use. Period. It's clearly written, in both summary and detail, to take the would-be author through the tricks and traps of getting published. An indispensable reference tool.

Bad, Bad ... in all my devices it download only the cover. Pretty expensive for just a cover. And obviously no way to get my money back.
