My Book: You Should Write a Book: Writing it With Style and Clarity, Publishing Beautiful Pages, Selling Thousands of Copies

According to a number of surveys almost eighty percent of people would like to write a book (and get it published). And of course, it's well known that only a small fraction of these people actually follow through. Why? There are a variety of reasons. They may, for example, be unsure how to get started, or how to go about publishing their work once it's finished. My book You Should Write a Book addresses these problems. The first half of the book shows you how to write a book that people will love to read; in particular, it shows you how to make it readable, personal, memorable and interesting. Many people think it's just a matter of getting something down on the page, but there's more to it than that. You have to be sure that somebody will want to read what you have written. If it's full of grammatical mistakes, boring sentences, and so on, it might not attract many people. I outline many of the "tricks" and techniques that help make it readable and interesting
I also discuss the problems associated with publication. It's no secret that large publishers are reluctant to take on the first book of inexperienced authors. And it's hard to blame them; publishers lose money on many of the books they publish, and "first books" are usually not among their big money-makers. Because of this,a good alternative is to self-publish your first book or two, and as it turns out this is not as difficult as you might think. There are two reasons for this. First of all, programs are now available that allow you to set up a book on your computer so that it looks like a book you would find in a bookstore. Secondly, you can now use the internet to sell it, and it can be quite effective. Amazon.com, for example, now sells more books than most large bookstore chains.
So it's up to you. It's a good time to become a published author and you'll never know how successful you can become unless you try.
