How To Write A Book

Why Write a Book This Year?
Have you been dreaming about writing your book this year? According to a recent survey the New York Times reported, 81% of people feel that they have a book in them and should write it. Why not join the list of authors who acted on that thought?

Writing a book is a great way to position you to charge higher fees, create additional income streams and go on more vacations. A book will expand your exposure, add credibility and increase your opportunities for adventure. Still not convinced? Here are 7 more dreamy reasons you should write a book now:

1. Write a book now; for now is better than later. Kill procrastination by acting now. Sign up for a good book writing course? Read a book about book writing. Sketch out your book writing plan. Remember you become a successful author the minute you start moving toward your worthwhile book goal. I don’t know anyone that regrets they wrote a book. But I know plenty of people that regret they didn’t do it sooner.

2. Write a book and extend your reach to the world. When your book is ready for purchase, many people will get it from all over the world. With your extended reach, opportunities for you to interact with people outside of your local area will come. Write a good book; make it easy for your subscribers and customers to tell their friends and associates. Remember, referrals always make the best customers and bring a higher rate of sales.

3. Write a book and go places you’ve never gone. At the least, your book will travel to countries and places you’ve never gone. Better yet, add speaking about your book’s topic to your list of services and watch new doors and opportunities for you open. Either way, writing your book will open opportunities to go places you may not get to go any other way.

4. Write a book and create multiple income streams. Don’t just plan a one book event but plan a series of books. It’s important to expand your thinking to the possibilities after your book is published. Plan to produce articles, books and updates that help your readers and help you profit from your passion. Each new book or related material will create new profit opportunities, further enhance your visibility and reinforce your credibility as an expert.

5. Write a book and become famous. Grow your name to fame. Write a book filled with success experiences that motivate your audience to give more, do more or share more. Share your experiences to inspire your audience. Share how you overcame seemingly insurmountable challenges in your field. It will motivate your audience to think if you did it; they can do it too.

6. Write a book and make your mother proud. Intertwine stories into your non-fiction manuscript. Entertain your audience, make them laugh; they’ll love you for it. Best of all, your family, your friends and your mother will be so proud to tell all their friends about your book.

7. Write a book and get paid higher fees. Writing a book elevates you to expert level. You gain instant credibility just by having author behind your name? And that added credibility gives you the power to increase your fees to expert level up to 400% and more.

Are you ready to join the ranks of successful authors? You don’t have to call your family to tell them you’ll be late again today. You won’t even have to pull in more people to help you work harder. I can’t think of a more opportune way to change your bottom line and even your life than by writing a book. Go ahead; write your best book now and prosper.

How To Give Your Book Idea The Stamp Of Approval

Have you chosen a book idea that has the potential to outsell your competition? That’s a good question. Your publisher would want to know. And you should know even if you’re self publishing.

I’m assuming you have gone through the process of selecting your book topic. You’ve done what it takes to pinpoint the best idea. Now there’s one more phase to complete before your book idea gets the stamp of approval.

1. Is this a book topic that I really have a great deal of interest in? Will I genuinely enjoy writing this book?

2. Are there at least ten to twenty places to promote/market my book (ezines, mailing lists, Web sites)? Does it lend itself well to search engine marketing?

3. Are there at least five people that I can interview as part of the book?

4. Have I identified at least three to five pressing problems that my readers are currently facing?

5. Can I find at least 100,000 prospects through online and offline opt-in e-mail lists?

6. Have I read at least three to four of my competitors’ books?

7. Can I find at least five distinguishing factors to write about in my book, that my competitors have not focused upon?

8. Have I come up with at least five benefits of why my book ideas are better than my competitors?

9. Are there at least 5 people from whom I can obtain testimonials or endorsements?

10. Have I come up with a great domain that is both memorable and applicable to my book’s content?

Answering the ten questions above will decide if your book idea can withstand the scrutiny of the book marketplace. You must at least answer ‘yes’ to eight of the questions before getting the stamp of approval. Then you move on to the developmental stage. For now, give your book the Ten Point Stamp of Approval Checklist above.
