This really is a comprehensive guide and well worth the money. I chuckled to myself over the fact that it is so comprehensive that the author even points out that you will need to think of an idea and then write your book first!

No fluff. Extremely practical

So many books for writers are filled with bland, obvious advice - write daily, get enough sleep, exercise,etc. Kowis' book is full of details about getting your book on the shelves.

Back in the day, self-publishing was the province of cranks and egomaniacs who couldn’t find a legitimate publisher. “Vanity presses” preyed upon people who thought there was a large untapped market for dreadful poetry and paranoid ravings. Sometimes a good book would manage to surface from the self-published world, but it was rare. Time
