Manage Your Self-publishing Project is an ebook that represents a unique approach to self-publishing. It uses to flow charts and mind-maps to graphically explain the processes. It is intended to be a self-contained guide on the self-publishing and marketing processes.
The book won’t tell you how to self-publish or market a book, but it will present the steps you need to take to get your book self-published and how to start marketing it. There are notes associated with the flow charts and the mind-maps to explain the tasks involved in that part of the process. These charts can be considered as elaborate and extensive to-do lists with time frames on when you should be addressing each to-do item.

Manage Your Self-publishing Project really covers the waterfront: It maps out everything from publishing and budgeting to marketing. In 40 information-packed pages, it gives you a clear, comprehensive picture of what it takes to produce your ebook, get it into distribution channels, and then promote it to readers. I’m considering putting together a series of short ebooks myself and I’m glad I’ve got Hank as my ebook coach!: Karin Abarbanel See the entire review at: http://karinwritesdangerously.wordpress.com/2013/03/08/self-punlishing-demystified/

I think the use of the flow charts and mind maps is excellent. I happen to work in computer graphics and fully believe in that old saw about a picture being worth a thousand words. Being able to encapsulate whole processes as a 1-page image is a great concept. I think it’s also good that you talk about budgets, and what professional services can cost. You give a dose of reality to those people who get sold on the idea that they can publish their book with a couple hundred dollars. Richard Herr
