Read full description of the books:
Before I started it and I saw that it was over 100 pages, I was leery, okay, that's just kind of a lot to have to learn about uploading my document to somebody's web site. Happily, much of what it has to say will only be applicable to a particular kind of person, you know, you can skip X if you're not writing a cookbook, you can skip Y if you're not a freakin' maniac whose document employs 86 different fonts.
Less happily, the voice was fairly offputting to me. It read like the audio track of a cartoon narrated by a "hip" teenage fox wearing a backwards ballcap and Macho Man Randy Savage rainbow mirrored wraparound sunglasses, voiced with the forced enthusiasm of a bad child actor.
The writer is bizarrely insistent on your using MS Word to compose your work, for somebody who uses most of the book to teach you all the many ways and means to trick Word out of doing everything it's been designed to do. Plus the hardline about the fantastic importance of getting into the Smashwords Premium Catalog reminded me of Jerry Lundegaard leaning on TruCote like he had a broken hip.
I picked up some exciting tips, tho.
"Hot Shot City" was particularly good.
