Like many authors or people who work in publishing, I get a constant stream of emails asking if I would consider helping them (or their friend/spouse/child/relative/coworker) get published. Because of my busy schedule, I wrote an earlier post that was meant to give people who write non-fiction books ideas on how to move forward (HERE), and I generally let people who contact me about fiction or children’s books know that I don’t have experience in those areas. Recently I came across author Ken Follett‘s website, and on it he has a section called “Masterclass” which gives generously extensive advice on writing a novel. (Check out his website HERE). At the end of the Masterclass, he has some ideas about getting published which I thought were excellent — read those HERE. I’ve never met Mr. Follett, but have enjoyed many of his books over the years — and I was heartened to see a bestselling author take the time to give solid and practical advice for writers. Enjoy!
Come and see me at the Center for Spiritual Living in Morristown NJ this Sunday — June 24th at 11:00am. For more information, visit their website HERE. I’ll be speaking about going “Beyond Your Limits.”
And I’ll be giving a 3-hour Think & Grow Rich Introduction workshop that same afternoon, Sunday, June 24th, 1:00-3:00pm. More information HERE.
Hope to see you!
Are you thinking of self-publishing a book? If so, check out this interesting article on self-publishing on Forbes.com — read it HERE. Promoting your self-published book is vital. I’ve seen a number of people self-publish their book expecting it to magically sell on its own, and get frustrated or angry when it doesn’t. If you self-publish a book, keep in mind that you are responsible for getting it “out there” for people to find and read.
