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!
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.
I’ve collected some of the quotes and idea that have had a profound impact on my life, and put them into this small book, called GREAT IDEAS FOR A GREAT LIFE. This is a collection of 101 quotes and ideas — a few from myself and many from those whom I consider mentors (such as Napoleon Hill, Raymond Charles Barker, Ernest Holmes, Florence Scovel Shinn, and many others). The ideas in this little book have inspired me, motivated me, and even challenged me to move beyond my boundaries and into my greater life. These ideas can inspire you to live your greatness as well. You can order the book from Amazon HERE.
Nancy Colasurdo, a life coach and writer for Fox Business, did a great interview with me recently, which is now published in this article about the new “Think and Grow Rich: Master Mind Volume” and “The Complete Think and Grow Rich Boxed Set” — you can read the Fox Business article HERE.
(You can find the Amazon link to the T&GR boxed set HERE, and to the Master Mind Volume HERE.)
I’ve read several exciting and inspirational books recently, that I wanted to share with you. Continue reading
Many people ask for advice in publishing their book(s), and often want me — or anyone they can find in publishing — to read through their work and offer advice, all of which takes valuable time. With the many responsibilities that those of us in publishing have, this, regrettably, is not usually possible. So, with this in mind, I’ve written a short article of publishing advice and ideas for self-help, non-fiction books on the topic of building a platform and finding an agent, and some thoughts about self-publishing and e-publishing. (I don’t have experience with fiction, poetry, or children’s book publishing). Even though this blog is dedicated to the spiritual and prosperity principles I teach, I thought I’d share the article here to help those who are thinking of writing a book. Continue reading
Exciting news — my two new e-books on “Think & Grow Rich” have just been published (and they are each only $3.99!).
“Creating Your Think and Grow Rich Master Mind” gives practical and easy-to-follow instructions on creating either (or both) a Master Mind group, or a Master Mind partnership. If you have wanted to form a Master Mind but didn’t know how, or if you want to go deeper with your current Master Mind, this e-book can help.
“Maximizing Your Think and Grow Rich Experience” is like a Think and Grow Rich workshop, to help you not only just read the words, but experience the philosophy — so it can work in your life! This e-book gives clear instructions on making Think and Grow Rich a 90-day journey.
