In a very short, humorously written piece of non-fiction by author Alex Canton-Dutari, How Not to Write, Publish and Promote Your Book will ring true to the many people out there who have had big dreams about becoming a famous author, only to find that all of their work has come to naught. The author himself followed all the steps from the book How To Become The Greatest Published Writer In The World, but was not successful in his attempts. Why not? This short guide explores that exact question. Author Alex Canton-Dutari outlines exactly what went wrong for him in an easy to follow format that many will find funny and refreshing, and they may also learn a bit for their own attempts in publishing the Next Great Novel.
I enjoyed How Not to Write, Publish and Promote Your Book. Author Alex Canton-Dutari has done a good job at relating his experiences in his attempts at success in writing. Many of his readers will find his story relatable, especially anyone who has tried to publish something without much success. His guide provides advice based on his own experiences, and many will find his words enlightening and reassuring. I think any reader who has written a book and is struggling with success in the publishing world, or any reader who is contemplating working towards publishing something would be well served in reading this work. Please be cautioned that this is a very short work, less than twenty pages long, and should certainly not be looked at as an exhaustive manual, but for what it is, this is a very good work.
