Do you have an idea for a book, but something is holding you back? A voice in your head that tells you it is too much work, or no one will buy it or it won’t be good enough?
Don’t listen to that voice! If your dream is to write a book or be a published author, here are some ways to reach that goal:
1. Start small with a blog. Every day, write an entry- a couple paragraphs or a complete chapter; share it with the world or keep it quiet. But over time, you will have a book that you can turn into an ebook!
2. Don’t go it alone. Consider a collection of chapters or tips from colleagues that are aligned with your brand and target market. Laurie Dupar of Coaching for ADHD is the co-author and editor of two books- 365 ways to succeed with ADHD and this year’s 365+1 ways to succeed with ADHD. She gathered together 80 other experts in ADHD and each contributed a specific tip and strategy. The combined collection is amazing!
3. Just do it. Months ago, Julie McGrath of The Joy Source had that voice in her head and she sat right down and did it! She didn’t let that voice take over, and she attracted the right words, found an editor and book designer and the rest is history- her book launches Nov 8 on Amazon: Joy-Worthy: A Mother’s Guide to More Joy, Less Stress and No Guilt!
Stay tuned for next steps and tools to help make that book publishing easier!
