Editorial Reviews


Publisher's Weekly Review, 1/18/19:
Two independent-publishing gurus present a keen-eyed, thorough view ofthe basics of getting a self-published book written, designed,distributed, and publicized. They know their stuff: Palachuk owns atechnology consulting firm, the Sacramento Small Business Server UserGroup, and a publishing business, the Great Little Book PublishingCompany, while Chandler is a former bookstore owner and the CEO of thecompany through which they (appropriately) self-published this book.They demonstrate that the strategy of self-publishing nonfiction is very different from fiction, and extends beyond the book itself; manyauthors will want to use their books as brand extensions.Self-publishing, Chandler and Palachuk observe, makes authors intoentrepreneurs--if they aren't already--with the success of their bookfirmly in their hands. The authors weigh the pros and cons ofself-publishing versus going with a traditional publishing house, andtackle profitability, distribution, soliciting endorsements and reviews(they suggest that when readers privately reach out to praise a book,authors should "reply with gracious appreciation and ask the reader topost a review online"), selling on Amazon, and a plethora of otherhow-to topics. Backed with case studies and resources, this is a usefulguide for nonfiction authors aspiring to bestsellerdom. (BookLife)

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY comprehensive & useful book!!
By Peggy on August 26, 2019
This is a very comprehensive book on publishing your nonfiction book! It is packed with many tips that I have never thought of, and it includes useful strategies for every stage of the process (before your write, during, and after writing your book). I found the interviews with successful writers to be especially useful. This is a remarkable and useful book, and I highly recommend it. Please mark if you find my review helpful. Thank you so much!

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading for Nonfiction Authors
By Kate Frank, Professional Scribe (aka: Ghostwriter) on October 19, 2018
While I made my headline about nonfiction authors, I dare to say it is required reading for anyone in the nonfiction book industry. Never has there been such a comprehensive, generous, and easily used book written about this topic.

As a ghostwriter/editor/coach for nonfiction authors, part of my work is teaching my clients about the industry. Far too many providers in this field take advantage of ignorance - instead of being transparent about what it takes to make a nonfiction book a success. If you are a future author, beware of any company or individual who offers "rose colored glasses" about what it takes to make a book profitable. It is NOT easy. With this book from Stephanie Chandler, the task is easier.

Specific Things I Liked About this Book

The book is well organized and thought out. If you already know a lot about nonfiction publishing, you still want to get this book. I guarantee - with no doubt - you will find things you did not know before. Even if you know almost all of it, this carefully structured book is a great resource for to keep on your book shelf for easy reference. However you have your current knowledge organized, I would be willing to bet accessing the information in this book will make the information easier to find.

She included personal stories of published authors. When one of them was asked if there is anything the author would do differently in their next book, I was happy to see this statement: "I'd be more cognizant of who my true audience might be." In my work, I find only a few book authors who have done this task well. Believe me when I tell you, identifying your target reader is crucial to book sales and profits from being a book author. I use the handle "profit ready book" in my marketing. Doing this one thing, knowing your target reader, is probably the most important thing an author should do for making money.

I could write a book length review of the Nonfiction Book Publishing Plan because I found it so useful. I will end my review with this statement: If you purchase the book to only get the checklists and systems in it, you will save a ton of hassle, time and money. There is no reason why you wouldn't want to purchase this book if you are serious about being a book nonfiction author.

Disclosure: I was given an advance copy of this book as a beta reader. However, I also purchased a digital version for my Kindle. Don't let the fact I got a free copy sway your acceptance of my positive review.
