What do I love about this book? You can tell right away that Mrs. Mulligan is a real human being. Don't get me wrong: she writes beautiful prose and it is clear that she is an accomplished writer, but she is also a flesh and blood person--like me or you. As a result, her advice is grounded in reality and the goals she sets are attainable. This was an incredibly useful book for me, as someone who self-published. But, I'd even recommend it for anyone who reads indie publishers or anyone who simply ...more

There are countless books (and websites and companies) offering advice on self-publishing and promising the sky is the limit when it comes to how many copies you'll sell, how much money you'll make, etc. All too often, however, those sources infuse us with bullet-proof optimism so we'll buy their product or services. I found this book very helpful and informative because it honestly portrays the reality most (nearly all) self-published writers will actually experience. The author doesn't rob asp ...more

I was very happy with this book. As a self published author, it is important for me to get as many different views as possible. I found Diane's book not only easy to understand, but also full of great, and practical information. She takes a no BS approach to her advice, and it was wonderfully refreshing. I took a few great notes, and lots of ways to help get my name out in the self publishing world more while learning from common mistakes that she, herself made. I am in no way a pro at this ever ...more

Unflinchingly candid take on self-publishing for someone who's been there. Diane offers practical advice on everything from cover design and book layout to social media platforms to dealing with negative reviews and really cares about helping other self-pubbed authors stay sane during the fun but exhausting process.

In 2015, I released a brief guide book to self-publish ...more
