Book Writing Secrets Revealed
The most difficult part of writing a nonfiction book is getting started and the easiest mistake is starting with chapter one. Approached from the beginning, the creation of a book-length manuscript appears to be a long, steep, hard climb.
The first secret is to break the project down into easy-to-attack chunks—called chapters in the book writing business and the second is never begin writing with chapter one. Start with the chapter that appears to be the easiest, shortest or most fun—skip around. The rest of the secrets to book writing are contained in a great new book: Is There a Book Inside You?; Writing Alone or with a Collaborator.
The authors, Dan Poynter and Mindy Bingham, offer numerous self-evaluation exercises to help would-be authors determine what kind of book to write, they provide a unique paint-by-the-numbers system for writing a book, and go on to describe several options for getting the book published. The book is illuminated with numerous encouraging success stories and their advice is backed-up with famous relevant quotations at the bottom of nearly every page.
Think you need help? Poynter asks: "You don’t really think Lee Iacocca had time to write his two best-selling books do you? All authors get help from editors and proofreaders—some work with co-authors, contract writers or even ghostwriters." The authors provide detailed information on finding, hiring, and working with different types of collaborators.
Is There a Book Inside You? is not just for the neophyte writer. Just as accomplished cooks refer back to their recipe books, seasoned authors will enjoy and profit from this book.
Fans of Poynter’s 80+ earlier books, including The Self-Publishing Manual, will not be surprised to find this new volume delivers a great deal of well-researched information, clearly presented. With her background in self-development books and business management, Mindy Bingham brings fresh ideas and an innovated approach to this topic found no where else in books on ‘how to write books’.
Is There a Book Inside You? is available for $14.95 in most bookstores or directly from Para Publishing, PO Box 8206-335, Santa Barbara, CA 93118-8206 USA. Tel: (805) 968-7277, info@ParaPublishing.com. Air shipping is $4.00, Californians add 1.16 sales tax. http://ParaPublishing.com.
