Fiction Unboxed – Sean Platt & Johnny B. Truant

It’s been only a matter of months since I stumbled upon the Self Publishing Podcast and Sean, Johnny, and Dave. But in that time I’ve learnt so much. And not the lessons you learn that go in one ear and out the other, but real ideas and ways of working that can change an author from a hobbiest into a pro.
I’m not a pro yet, but my attitude has taken a massive shift since listening to these guys.
Fiction Unboxed was originally conceived to accompany their Fiction Unboxed novel writing project, but even if like me you weren’t one of the contributors to that project, there’s plenty to enjoy in this book.
The book is a diary of sorts through the Fiction Unboxed project, interesting in itself, but each section concludes with several actions that a write can implement.
I enjoyed the book. It’s written in a conversational style, never preachy or promising unrealistic results.
Maybe it’s because I thought the previous book Write, Publish, Repeat, said all that needed saying that made me feel this offered a teeny bit less. A worthwhile read—yes, absolutely. And if you haven’t tried the podcast or read Write, Publish, Repeat, I’d implore you to try those as well.
