Tips for first Time Book WritersAdvice for the first timebook authors
I knew what I wanted before I wrote my first book - from Joanna Penn
Speaking at the Strathpine Library Book Group (Brisbane, Australia) the other evening, I was enjoying the time! The ( (almost) released novelist, the jammed sci-fi enthusiast, the nice women who have written children's literature, young adults and poesy, the footy enthusiast who needed help with his sound transcriptions, and of course the 82-year-old who had none of my digitally released niches!
I' m certainly not an authority on the field of typing, so I went to inspiration and to enthuse the group about the opportunities that exist in this area. And I wanted to tell the things I would have known before I wrote my first one: "I was going to write my first book: To write is a voyage, but a work is a destination.
Now you can have your ledger in your hand. However, it's not just about the writer, you have to define a goal and then implement it. Do not say: "I will have my Lord of the Rings epos in 6 weeks". You can say: "I will put 1000 words a days on my novel and I will complete the first design in 3 months".
The first time you start a fight because it seems infinite.... but you can make it! You' ll need to know about the release option before you complete your work. While I was composing my novel, I knew nothing about publication. Also I found out that I should have sent a request and suggestion, as against a finished textbook (at least for non-fiction).
Knowing your choices, you can get things moving before you complete the script. Publishing houses want a "platform" and a marketing-planning as part of their inquiry. I' ve got a lot about it on the blogs - but I'll especially point out how Gary Vaynerchuk got a 10-book dealing with Harper Collins.
Again, here is a free award-winning books marketed schedule if you need inspiration for your sourcing! Self-publishing, publishing an e-mail, writing a blogs, writing an article, making a webcast, using print-on-demand. Selling your books at Amazon.com, the world's largest bookstore. There is no need for a publishing house to market your books at Amazon.
Use a self-publish services such as Lulu.com, CreateSpace, or Booksurge to share your work. They can use print-on-demand and do not have to keep stocks. In spite of the #AmazonFail fiasco, Amazon still offers an astonishing experience for writers and writers around the game. Advertising can be done by yourself, with or without cash.
Don't let your completed work sit sadly at home - bring it out! They can even do it with a self-published volume on Oprah. I don't have such a big history, but I did it on Australian television with my self-published novel "How to enjoy your job".
Well, I didn't have the money for a journalist, so I spend nine and a half weeks studying something about it. It' addicting to publish and publish a book! Soon you may think you will only author this book, but you will have more suggestions for more of them! I' ve since 2 wrote more - both are ecbooks now, and both will be on Amazon next Month or so.
