Craft, business, and the best advice an indie can get in a book bundle. [Book Review]

To be honest, I don’t even know how I got my hands on this book bundle. As of this writing [in February 2017], I can’t find it available for purchase. That being said, each of the three books in the bundle are available, so I wanted to share my thoughts anyway, in case the writers out there are looking for a resource in your publishing journey.

My Rating

If you read all three of these books back-to-back, you will find a lot of conflicting information – but that’s one of the reasons this bundle works so well. Written by masters of indie writing and publishing, it gives several different accounts – each useful in their own right – of how these authors made a name for themselves in the indie (and traditional!) publishing worlds.

I give this bundle four of five stars for being all-encompassing. Read separately, each of these books has its pros and cons. Not every book in this bundle will be for every writer; instead, in separating what resonates with you from what doesn’t, you will find the answers you are looking for much easier than if you only read one book over another. I recommend it to indies and aspiring writers alike!
