Do You have a book in you? I frequently run into people who tell me they are writing a book, want to write a book, or have other people telling them they should write a book. The word author comes from the word authority. Writing a book places you as a perceived authority in your field. And that’s a great place to be.
The challenge often occurs when authors or aspiring authors realize there is a lot more to writing a book than just getting the words down on a page. Gone are the days of writing a book manuscript, sending it to major publishing companies, getting picked up by one of them, getting your advance, and then sitting back waiting for the royalty checks to roll in.
Today’s publishing companies are very selective in whose work they publish. Many do not take risks on unknown or first-time authors. And even if you do get a publishing contract, you often lose creative control of your material and will earn a minuscule amount on each book sold.
Today, 80% of all new books are self published according to Jerry Jenkins of the Jenkins Group. Should you decide to self-publish, too, there are many factors to consider.

* What goes on the copyright page?
* What is the proper order of the parts of the book?
* How do I sell on line?
* How can I get it into bookstores?
* Where do I store my books?
* How do I get them printed?
* Should I do hard cover or paperback?
* How do I set up author tours?
* How do I publicize my book?
