Here we have a guide that happens to be a great how-to roadmap anyone can use if they're inclined toward let's call it 'non-traditional' publishing. Brad Pauquette is director/founder of the Columbus (Ohio) Creative Cooperative, and his knowledge of the publishing industry and its quirks, necessities and pitfalls is deep. It's indeed what prompted him to compile this well formatted, sensible, informative and well written guide on how to navigate the sometimes tangled and confusing universe of se ...more

A good, quick, and informative read for a lazy Saturday afternoon. The book reinforced a couple of things I knew but gave insight to things I would not have thought about. The author will occasionally give information about using his company in the publishing process but not shoving down your throat. A great thing he does (in my view) is explaining the money saving steps while explaining the consequences it you go too extreme.

Even with some experience in the self-publishing world, I still learned new information from this little book. This handbook outlines important steps in the self-publishing process, and expounds on the different routes available to authors considering self-publishing. It was a fast read, but I've frequently found myself thumbing back through the sections for reference. It's written in layman's terms, and the author defines and explains publishing jargon along the way. I would recommend this book ...more
