From Jobless to Amazon Bestseller: The Step-by-Step System I Followed to Write, Self-publish, Market and Promote my Book to Become a #1 Bestseller on Amazon by Marc Reklau is an informative guide on self-publishing. Many people dream of being a writer, but although they may have the words on paper, they don’t know where to start when it comes to publishing. Amazon is one of the biggest marketplaces for books and this guide will give you all the information you need to be able to finish your book - to find the time to sit down and start writing - and how to go about publishing it. Many agents tend to ignore new authors so self-publishing is the only option. This book will guide you through the process with loads of helpful tips along the way.
From Jobless to Amazon Bestseller is quite an informative book. The subject is something that has been written about before, but it was nice to read a personal perspective on it. I was a bit nonplussed at how someone can find the money to pay out for some of these tips when they are jobless, but I guess that to make something of yourself you have to be prepared to pay. In terms of the actual book, I found it to be well written and clearly researched, and is definitely written for the market it is aimed at – to clarify that, I have read other, similar types of books where the content is not clearly written for a specific market, whereas this one is. I learned something from this book and it was nice to see some tips that were unique. Good book if you are ready to write, publish, and have enough spare money so that you can make it work for you.
