My current project is one I should have begun years ago – a written version of my Publishing 101 & 102 seminars. Those seminars are my most popular and attendees have often asked if I had book covering the topic. Using my original seminar titles, the book is called How to Publish & Promote Your Book Now!
From my extensive notes, it was easy to compose an outline and begin writing. Ive enjoyed being able to go into greater detail all of the aspects of publishing and promoting a book. Ive broken the chapters down into short, easy to follow segments, covering every aspect of my seminars. Each chapter also includes website links to more information, examples, and items an author needs.
Since there is far more presented in the book than during my seminars, I had to do additional research. The industry is changing so fast now with eBooks that I know I will be making last minute edits up to the very end. I hope to be able to update the eBook version every few months and offer it free to those who have already purchased either the print or eBook copy.
There are already many excellent books on the market, but I do believe mine will have a unique niche. Most books focus on either publishing or promoting while mine will cover both topics. It will also be aimed at entry-level writers, giving them the basics without overwhelming. And it will be an excellent source of further study for those who attend my seminars.
With the assistance of my Dragon Naturally Speaking software, I am currently in the final stages of editing. Look for How to Publish & Promote Your Book Now! by the end of the year.
