This installment of the best of the best books I have read, should help you find answers to important book publishing questions.

Mark Levine’s book, The Fine Print of Self-Publishing, provides important information about publishing. He provides information concerning expenses, royalties, author rights and mistakes to avoid. As some businesses go bankrupt and major changes take place, Mark publishes up-dated editions of his books.

Many years ago, before I published I read one of Mark’s first books about publishing. I choose Createspace to edit, design and format that book. Createspace proved to be as good as Mark had indicted.

Mark must have known what he was talking about because Amazon bought Createspace shortly after they started helping me with my book. I researched Mark and other experts before I placed value on their content. I hope you can benefit from the time I spent finding trustworthy experts.


The Fine Print of Self-Publishing by Mark Levine is a good book to read about publishing. Even if you just read “Inside the Book” for free, I am sure you will find the answers to many of the questions you have concerning publishing.

My recommendation for “from Word to EBOOK” by Ben Macklin is not ready yet. His book looks promising and for 99 cents, I think it is at least note worthy.

Thankfully, Aiming at Amazon by Aaron Shepard is a book that helped guide me to Amazon.

Secrets of a Freelance Writer by Robert Bly contributed to my success writing articles for (a plumbing supply house in New York.

The Chicago Manual of Style¬†helped me create a more professional presentation. Old plumbers need all the help they can get. Please don’t judge by my presentation. The Chicago Manual of Style is one of the most important manuals for professional writing.

Dan Poynter’s Self-Publishing Manual helped me build enough confidence to publish.

Print-on-Demand Book Publishing convinced me that print-on-demand is the best way to create paper books.

Createspace and Kindle Self-Publishing by Rick Smith is a good book that will help you understand Createspace and Kindle publishing.

I learned how to ask the best questions and how to find the people to provide the best answers as I wrote and published my books. I purchased almost all of the books listed above.
