Don't Go For Broke: Go For Book Growth by T N Traynor
T N Traynor


Save time and money. Get more sales. Earn a profit.
From award winning, bestselling author T N Traynor, comes a no-frills reference guide, to help turn you from a writer into an authorpreneur!

Want to self-publish professionally for as little cost as possible? Then this is the book for you.

Whether you’ve written for fun or profit, in this how-to manual you will discover the cheapest way to publish your book.

Inside these pages are guidelines on publishing your book, and how much it should cost you. There are lots of 'how to' pages ranging from putting your book on Amazon, advertising and promoting and how to get those all-important reviews. Plus a chapter on getting your book onto audio.

At the end of chapters are blank pages for you to reflect, make notes but most importantly for you to record your dreams and ambitions. Ebooks are great, but Don’t Go For Broke would be best utilized in a paperback version so you can write your notes in it, bend page corners, insert book marks and generally use it as a reference guide that you can dip into every now and again when you move on to the next stage of your journey.

Star Rating: 5

‘Utterly practical, this is a bible for all self-published authors. Highly recommended!’

Before we look at the book, let me tell you who I am and why my opinion of this text might be helpful to you. Well, I'm a self-published author who has published eighteen books over the last twenty years and sold just over 200,000 of them. I also set up and now organize The Wishing Shelf Book Awards, and I've personally helped and worked with thousands of self-published authors all over the world. So, yes, I know a few things about self-publishing.
Now that's out of the way, let's discuss the book. Firstly, allow me to try to sum it up in a sentence. Don't Go Broke, Go for Book Growth is basically the A-Z of self-publishing, from Advertising Yourself to Writing a Synopsis like a Pro. And it’s good; very good. So much so, I wish I’d had access to a book like this when I started out all those years ago.
Whilst reading this book, two things struck me. Firstly, the author's knowledge of the self-publishing industry and how you might wish to go about publishing a book this way, is far-reaching and I couldn't fault it. Secondly, it's written in such a chatty sort of way – and not at all overly technical – writers who are about to self-publish for the first time will not be overwhelmed by it.
So, if you are contemplating self-publishing, I'd happily recommend this book to you. Whether you are trying to work out how to embed fonts or how to put together your Amazon Author Page, this book will help you to get there. In fact, it’s so well-written and so accessible, I’m going to put a link to it on The Wishing Shelf Book Awards’ website.
