The Critique Survival Guide

Is now published.

For free!

Right now it’s available in all popular formats (Kindle, Nook, Apple etc.) on Smashwords, and is finding its way out to other online stores.

It’s also up on Amazon but they don’t allow for free books so it’s priced 99 cents (the minimum I can set there). Apparently if enough people report that it’s available free elsewhere Amazon might get around to price matching in their stores. I would welcome some help there (hint, hint)


  1. Sounds like a really useful book for new writers. :-D

  2. Congratulations Ian for getting this book published. Annoying that Amazon won't let you publish for free (only for 3-day special offers). I don't mind paying 99c though. Your hard work is worth that much!

  3. Thanks Ian ... I downloaded the pdf - so thank you for that. Looks to be an interesting read .. all the best and cheers Hilary

  4. Congratulations! Will download today.

  5. That's my hope, Misha.

    Denise, I figure if people are happy to pay a small sum then that's OK with me, but I want to make sure they're aware it's available for free. I'm sure Amazon will catch up eventually.

    Hilary & Alex, thanks, I hope you find it interesting and I'd appreciate feedback from those who've been through the process already.

  6. This is perfect for all those writers out there who are new to critiques. I'll be pointing a few I know toward it!

  7. Thanks Stephen.

    Jean, I would very much appreciate that!

  8. Hey Ian,

    Checking your book out and grabbing the chance to download what seems like a must read book. Consider your posting shared, eh!

    Have a nice Sunday, good sir.


  9. Gary, download away! And have a good weekend.

  10. Congratulations! Sounds like a book that can help a lot of other writers. Big spender that I am, I'll get it through Amazon. :)


I love comments. Please feel free to join in the discussion.

I also try to respond to comments. I usually do so during the early evening (Pacific time) which may be many hours away from now!

So if you leave a comment and return some time later and I haven't responded yet, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm not. Honest.
