Publisher's Summary

This isn't the Holy Grail of indie publishing, this is some dude, (me), telling you how I make money on Kindle.
There aren't any tricks or magic formulas in this one. There isn't even an elaborate tale of how I just cashed in a million from my yarns.
No, I haven't made a million, but I am making a living. Bit by bit, it's coming along. And that's how it should be. Bit by bit.
This book is about getting down to what matters, and that is making an honest writer out of you. Does that mean I'm advocating myself as an honest soul? No, I'm evil remember! What I'm trying to do is show you that if your passion is writing and telling a damn good story then this will be the book for you.
I'll tell you about my experiences in the self-publishing world and how it takes a whole lot more than catchy covers and keywords to get your book to the best sellers. It also takes more than one book. It might take 10. It took seven for me and even then I wasn't' making millions and still aren't. But am I happy with my progress? Damn right. Am I paying bills? Yes Sir! Am I a millionaire? No, I am not! Does it matter? No! If you want to earn money as a writer, you need to write and be thankful for every book you sell. It's not a race and I'll show you why in this book.
Don't trust those evil so-called authors who promote misleading titles and game the system. It's all about the books and keeping those lovely people we call our listeners happy. Fail in that, and you can suck on a coconut!

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Try as I did to enjoy this book, I just couldn't. Even at such a short run time listening to it was a chore.
I found nothing of value in the text/narration and may well appeal more to a younger listener than a curmudgeonly old man like me.

The production of the narration was fine and the performance was adequate.
