A Productive Indie Book!
Last month, I took a bit of a break, and also mentioned that I was working on something that I would tell you about soon.
As the image, above, has probably told you, that something is the first PIFW book.
I’ve been getting back to a more productive writing schedule, and while I was at it, I wrote a book about productivity and writing more–the general themes I tend to pound upon here on The Productive Indie Fiction Writer.

Appendix: Recommended Resources
If you’ve been reading this site for a while, I’m sure you recognize many of the titles in the content table. I did pull a lot of material from the site, but while I was at it, I updated, edited, culled and rearranged a lot of the post material, so that it’s relevant for the current state of the indie publishing industry. It’s also presented in a cohesive order so that you can work through the book and arrive at the end with a production and writing schedule you can live with.
There’s also a lot of new material added to the base information.
If you prefer to have your material presented all in one, instead of bouncing from post to post, you’ll find the book invaluable.
If you want to be more productive and get a grip on your writing career, you’ll love it.
