Un libro motivador, que te explica sin medias tintas las cosas que necesitas para ser un autor que vive de lo que escribe. No hay fórmulas mágicas ni técnicas secretas, solo estar dispuesto a trabajar 10 veces más que cualquier otro. Reconozco que no hay nada aquí que no haya visto en otros libros, pero está muy bien contado y es breve, lo que se agradece.

Should you read this book? Hell yes!

There wasnt a lot in here I didnt know, but its laid out really well and explained in relatable ways. A must read for aspiring authors and veterans alike! You dont yet know what you dont know, so maybe there will be more groundbreaking info in here for some of you than for me, but it's still a great reminder to read this book.

Shifting the mindset.

I really enjoyed how this book caused me to look at my mindset and approach to my writing. Lots of advice and tools to help get things in motion. It gives an overlook of what a writers life looks like when you do the work.

Push that flywheel!

Platt and Truant give great advice on putting your nose to the grindstone, push that heavy flywheel, don’t be distracted by get rich schemes or ninja shortcuts, and just keep doing the work. That is the time honored, if not sexy or fast, path to success.

Less of a book, more of a long article, but a worthy pep talk about the realities of being an indie author. I would recommend it to newbies, but it's not much use to me at this stage in the game. ...more

I received a free copy of this book from the author. I had the opportunity to review or not.

I didn’t know what to expect from this book, but I thought it would have information on exactly what to do. Although it was not specific with exact steps to become a great writer, it was much more. It reminded me of why I had started writing to begin with. I loved to write, and I had forgotten. It reminded me that it is not easy to write, but I was not writing because it was easy. I was writing because I

A (self-admitted) more conceptual than practical book on writing this one, with some personal lessons shared from the Sterling and Stone team. Some very good lessons and reminders, there's likely to be something in here that snags the attention of most writers, wherever their journey - worth reading regularly to see what gets snagged. Most of all, do the work. ...more

On the short side for the cost, but that said, this is a great motivational book. Don't buy this book if you're looking for marketing tips or anything like that. This is a book about creating a mindset for the long-term. ...more

Useful info

Good information from authors who are pumping out the books. Some of the stuff in this book is common knowledge but not always common practice. This book is a good kick in the ass.

Not a ton of information here, but the information provided is really helpful. It's all about mindset. I always feel encouraged after reading books from these guys, and I always learn something too. ...more

If you need a quick pick-me up to jumpstart and cheerlead your writing, this'll do ... but it's thin on detail and feels rushed, not the usual valuable read as other books by these authors. ...more
