Over the holidays I finally got a chance to finish reading William Benitez’s book on self publishing. If you’re thinking about adding some titles on this topic to your bookshelf, here’s my review.
As someone very interested in self-publishing, I’ve read lots of books on this subject. One thing I preferred about this title was most of the information was brand new to me. Mr. Benitez offers you a been there, done that approach which will probably cut down on the learning curve for many of us.
He includes lots of screen shots to help clarify what he’s talking about…which is great for techno phobics like myself.
And added plus for me was he talks a lot about using the Serif Page Plus software which I happen to own but haven’t really explored yet. This book and his advice gave me lots of confidence to do just that, and then put it to good use in my own self-publishing adventure. In fact, it could a boom to self-publishers who don’t have a big budget. So if you own this low-cost software or thinking about buying it, then this is must read. And for others, I think it’s a good pick because it delves into self publishing topics other books haven’t tackled.
