Review of APE: AUTHOR, PUBLISHER, ENTREPRENEUR by Guy Kawasaki & Shawn Welch

Rating: 5 out of 5
Self-publishing has become increasingly popular as e-readers have made the ability to get your work out there accessible and affordable. But just because you can self-publish a book doesn’t mean you should, or that you know how to, or that your book will be immediately successful. Fortunately, Guy Kawasaki and Shawn Welch have self-published a remarkable book on the subject itself called APE: AUTHOR, PUBLISHER, ENTREPRENEUR.
APE like an interesting step-by-step guide to the self-publishing process. After determining if you should even write a book, the authors take you on the journey of being an author and actually writing your book, including helpful advice on financing your book, editing, securing a visually appealing book cover, and formatting for e-readers or for print. Then the authors walk you through the process of actually publishing your book through one of the ebook distributors or directly to readers. Finally, the authors cover how to be an entrepreneur, building a platform for your book and building an audience.
The authors include many stories about their own process of self-publishing APE. The book has a ton of helpful advice and should be the go-to guide for anyone who wants to tackle self-publishing a book.
