Writing a Book – On Purpose!

Writing a Book – On Purpose!

Many of my articles are written for “the motivated author,” but sometimes, motivation is not so much the key as identifying that life does indeed have a way of showing you what you are to do – with clearly defined purpose! That is exactly what happened in my life almost a decade ago.  Life and business strategy coaching was challenging and exciting.  “Flourishing” was the term best applied to both my business and that of my clients.  Little did I know, however, that the coaching was merely foundational to a much larger purpose in my life – creating a small publishing house and shifting myriad talents and skills to the support of sassy entrepreneurs and savvy service professionals who had important messages to share… in a book… and putting their voices...

Book Marketing Strategies: When Social Media Comes Calling – Do You Respond?

I have had feedback this week that putting the pressure on to have Authors add more to their plate to spend valuable writing time posting on social media is akin to some sort of cruelty!  One person even suggested that there was an extreme gap between the writing they want to accomplish in service to others and the prattle of what they deem to be somewhat self-serving. I admit to having a relatively heightened degree of empathy for this line of thinking, but when you go back to the very foundation that “your book IS a business” I would have to challenge this line of thinking by giving the reminder that when viewed in a healthy perspective, social media become a wonderful give that provides many opportunities for expanded expression as a writer!  Furthermore, if...

As an Author… it IS the Little Things That Make a BIG Difference in Your Success

I frequently have people ask me, “Why do you limit yourself to working with first time authors?”  I make that distinction because I know it is the seemingly little things you don’t know that can make a huge difference in your results!  For me as a Literary Strategist, and yes, even for you as an entrepreneur or service professional… if, as a change agent you want to make the most positive impact possible in the world, it becomes necessary to dig a little deeper and find the biggest problem and provide solutions for that.  I didn’t start out with the first time author being my ideal client – I just wanted to be able to help those authors who had figured out too late that they had, “oops, skipped a few steps or gotten them...

Six fun and easy methods to build a bigger author’s platform.

As a Literary Strategist, my job involves supporting first time authors in many aspects of writing, publishing and marketing books to success.  As a first time author, your book marketing strategies should be fully focused to get your book noticed. What most first time authors don’t realize is that creating an author’s platform is a seriously critical element… and it must be accomplished before, during and after writing the book! Being a successfully published author requires that you have an ever-expanding “platform.”  If you are new to the industry, that term may be confusing to you.  Essentially, it refers to the “following” you have, over time, created. Service professionals normally build their platform first through...
