Book Description
The $1.99 Author is an informative and fun book for those who write books and people who think they might want to.

Are you planning to write and publish a book?

Do you have a completed manuscript?

Have you self-published a book or even a few books?

Would you like to write books for additional income or a living?

Were you traditionally published by a “small-press” and have found yourself faced with book marketing? 

There are more myths and legends in the book publishing game than can be found in ancient Greek literature. 

The $1.99 Author offers a pragmatic look at today’s book publishing options for both budding and previously published authors. Almost every conceivable publishing path is touched upon with the pros and cons of each laid bare. E. A. Barker is a journeyman writer with a knack for drilling to the bottom of the truth-well while managing to serve up even the most disturbing of discoveries with a dash of humour. This helps to make this insider’s view of a truly bizarre industry a little more palatable. The pages are free of sugar-coated empty promises of success. Instead, readers will be made to understand there is a slippery ladder awaiting them, and The 1.99 Author shows us how to climb it safely without: getting ripped off, getting sued, going broke, being laughed at. . . in addition to mitigating some of the gut-wrenching experiences like piracy and plagiarism which most published authors have likely encountered.

Best of all, once you understand the game, you will be given a map of the minefield that is today’s book publishing industry so you can avoid the time-consuming low-yield traps . . . allowing you to concentrate your efforts on what really matters . . . writing more and better books. 

Are you the next one-in-a-million author with a hit book? 

If you think you might be, picture The $1.99 Author as being a glass-bottomed boat from which you can view the shark-infested waters of the publishing industry before choosing where to dive in. For every one author, there are hundreds of people lined up to fleece them. Whether you simply want to publish your memoir; publish as a hobby; or think you have what it takes to climb the publishing ladder into “The Big Five”, The $1.99 Author will save you a great deal of time, money, and heartache in your publishing journey.

Author bio
The more serious side of E. A. Barker believes he is an average guy in mid-life who has led a mostly average life. His readers may not agree with his assessment. The single biggest difference between him and most other people, is his pursuit of knowledge. Throughout his life he never stopped asking the simplest question: Why? E. A. fancies himself as a collector of ideas and a purveyor of dot connections. He attempts to present his findings in an entertaining fashion in an effort to encourage people to read—especially men who are reading far too little these days. He is an advocate of education for its ability to affect social reform, and actively promotes the idea that a global conscience is possible.

The fiction-writing side of E. A. Barker would love nothing better than leading a screen-free life using a typewriter in a grass hut on a beach somewhere near the equator, but this has yet to become his reality. He currently lives within walking distance of a beach in Ontario, Canada, although he is not happy about the short beach season, and the city’s denial of his proposed erection of a private beach hut on the waterfront.
