Become a Successful Indie Author by Craig Martelle


16th July 2020. 4 stars.

As the title suggests, this book is aimed at independent authors. It’s a positive, encouraging book that shows you what it’s possible to achieve with hard work, marketable ideas and an insight into the world of self-publishing. The author’s been there and calls on his experiences and learning mistakes to offer practical advice, inspiration and solutions.

I’m not a science fiction fan, so the author’s examples didn’t resonate with me and I skipped most of them. The rest of the book gave me some useful ideas on book descriptions and marketing on Amazon.

If you’re new to writing and self-publishing, this is an essential introduction into the world you are about to join.


Demystifying the tangled web of self-publishing to put you on the road to success.

This is the 2nd Edition, updated in 2020. A motivational guide based on publishing over four million words (mostly with Amazon) to help you see past the hurdles that are keeping you from climbing the mountain of success. Nothing is overwhelming once it’s been explained. If you are smart enough to write a book, you are smart enough to do everything else needed to make your indie author business a success.
