PLEASE read the Amazon reviews of the 2006 edition of this book; there are FAR more than for this edition, but this edition improves on the earlier one.

Want to get published? Do it yourself-and make a living from it! Here's the critically acclaimed, multiple-award-winning blueprint that built a full-time income from one book-newly updated and expanded!
Whether Newbie or Experienced... New to publishing? TWFSP takes you step-by-step through every stage of your publishing success story. Seasoned pro? You'll walk away with fresh tools and insights that'll boost the profitability of your new and existing titles. Far from theoretical, TWFSP is One Big Case Study: the author's own real-world success chronicle!
Landing a publisher has never been harder. Even when you do, count on anemic royalties, 24 months to publication, giving up the rights to your book, and still doing most of the marketing yourself! Meanwhile, self-publishing has become easier, more viable, and more potentially lucrative than ever before.
Follow the author's firsthand experience as you learn how to:
Develop a marketing mindset, minus the anxiety!
Create a book that turns heads and grabs eyeballs
Find tons of reviewers anxious to publicize your book
Get your books into bookstores and keep them there!
Build a cash-generating web site that works 24/7 Avoid the fickle (and largely ineffective) mainstream media
Parlay one book into multiple income streams
Separate the Print-on-Demand hype from reality
Use social media to actually sell books (vs. waste time...) (NEW!)
Maximize ebook profits four different ways (NEW!)
Most importantly, you'll learn a radical new approach to book promotion, one that keeps you in control of events. The result: less anxiety, higher profits, and more fun!
Unlike most books on the subject, TWFSP focuses on process and profits-and in the same engaging, irreverent style that's made the Well-Fed Writer titles enduring standards in the field of high-paying commercial freelancing!
