This was the inspirational nonfiction read on indie publishing I have been waiting for I had a break planned in Cornwall and this was the perfect read for the train I ve been following Johnny, Sean and Dave since the early days of their Self Publishing Podcast and avidly devoured Write, Rinse, Repeat , the prelude to this fine tome.I m currently working for the journey of writing and building an imprint publishing business so this fly on the wall focus on their Sterling and Stone business is a compelling insight into all the growing pains, the mistakes and the successes that have marked their journey since conception.All the potential pitfalls are here and if you re a self published author let s call it indie author or thinking about going that route you should heed the trio s smarter artist approach the authorpreneur way of doing things We re in a new world when it comes to publishing so shake off those traditional pre conceptions.Let s be clear, the SPP guys elaborate in their antidotes, history and examples which I love and if you allow yourself to go with their journey you will be hugely rewarded.Highly Recommended Buy unless you haven t readWrite Publish Repeat The No Luck Required Guide to Self Publishing Success The Smarter Artist Book 1 yet In which case buy that first. Fascinating follow up to Write.Publish.Repeat What I especially love is the honesty and lack of ego It offers a valuable insight into the authors journey and doesn t gloss over the mistakes in favour of bigging up their many successes It is also a reminder that hard work is necessary There are no quick wins but graft, sass, commitment and evolving your workflow will lead you down the right path towards a writing career.
