    The Influential Author by Gregory V Diehl is a book I was given a copy to read and review But I actually listened to this one on audiobook and I recommend it to be the best way to process this book.I read the book cover to cover but honestly, there isn t a need to do so This book is the textbook kind of read, where you can dip in and out of the chapters and get whatever you need to know about writing and publication Even though it is focused on writing self published nonfiction, I do think this could be beneficial to any writers who are starting out or considering self publishing It will help you with basically everything from how to publish self published work, what to consider, what you may need to do, and what to avoid It also has tips on how to develop a healthy writing routine and write better as well It covers so much that I don t really see myself needing to read another non fiction guide on how to write and publish self published works.As a book blogger, I sometimes accept self published books for review I ve pretty much come across everything now From the good, to the bad, to the very ugly I definitely know what book I ll be recommending to self published authors whose work I didn t end up enjoying Even if you aren t the best writer, I do think this is the kind of read which will at least get your writing to a...

    Self publishing isn t just about books being sold it s also about words and writing In The Influential Author, author Gregory Diehl, who may well be influential, draws readers in quickly with an overview of the history, importance, power and social dangers of words As a Cambridge mathematician, I particularly love the reminder of the importance of, for examples, Newton s Principia Mathematica, but readers from other fields will find much to intrigue them too, as the author explores censorship, science and even common sense in an overview of history and philosophy in a book about writing Of course, by modern times the philosophical questions just might devolve into self publish or persist in seeking a publisher, and the author deals quickly and clearly with the timeline, royalty and creative control reasons for self publishing.Then there are the reasons for writing Writing a book is hard It s not for everyone It will take lots of thought and lots of time Gregory Diehl s The Influential Author starts with philosophy, communi...

    Revealed Complexity Long ago I learned that the I studied a topic, the complexity I uncovered and the I discovered what I didn t know about that topic Gregory Diehl s seminal book, The Influential Author How and Why to Write, Publish, and Sell Nonfiction Books that Matter, taught me just how much I didn t understand about writing and self publishing a nonfiction book.It should be easy, right I sit at my computer and type out what I would say if we were face to face chatting about the topic of interest Diehl quickly disabused me of that idea and set me straight on what it takes to author a book that matters At the same time, he inspired me to write that book I haven t gotten around to writing Organization Everything about Diehl s book exactly demonstrates what he is inculcating The organization of the content is no exception The body of his work comprises seven parts Philosophy, Strategy, Creation, Refinement, Presentation, Promotion, and Reward He then adds a conclusion to draw all the content together and remind us what we have learned Diehl packs each section with practical how to information as well as the reasoning behind the directions given.The front material includes a wonderful section titled, Questions to Help You Get the Most from This Book Those questions did indeed help me watch for answers along the way They kept me focused on my reasons for exploring authorship Is the content of your book unique Are your tone and presentatio...

    I thought this book was going to be your typical how to write book a lot of fluff, a little entertainment, a fair amount of how to information that s only useful to beginners, and maybe one tiny nugget of gold that makes the book worth spending time on, maybe.It s much than that.This book is meticulously written, highly detailed, and goes over almost everything about the subject that you could possibly imagine wanting to know.This could be considered a weakness, because it takes a long time to read and digest it all But I consider it a strength, because it s so well written and compelling that it s fun to read, and doesn t feel like it s wasting my time anywhere This is particularly meaningful when you consider that I m the kind of reader who typically likes concise and succinct books, and this book is defini...
