Do you have a book idea that you’ve been mulling over for years?
Do people routinely say to you, “You should really write a book!”
If so, consider taking the first steps to writing and publishing your book now. Why wait? If you have a great idea, but don’t know how to begin, contact me. I can offer you advice on how to get your ideas on paper.
If you need a little convincing, here are eight reasons to write a book:
You can say, “I wrote the book on that subject!”
If you’re an expert in a field and have valuable information to share, you should really write a book, so that others can learn from you. People are always looking for successful examples from experienced professionals in their industry. Plus, it is fun to point to a book jacket and say, “I wrote the book on that!”
There is nothing like a book for gaining credibility
Writing a book takes a lot of time, energy, and knowhow. If you complete and publish a book, people will take notice. As long as your book is well-written and contributes something to society, you will gain credibility.
You will become a published author
You will have the suffix published author attached to your name. It’s a bit like a royal title. What better calling card, regardless of the business you’re in.
You can cross that goal off your bucket list
Just completing a long term goal is reason enough to venture into the world of writing. It is very satisfying to have accomplished a task that has occupied so much of your attention for so long. Let’s mark it as DONE!
You will be helping others
By sharing your story or giving others your secrets of success, you will help various people that you’ve never met. It is immensely satisfying to receive reviews and emails from readers, letting you know that you have bettered their lives in some way.
A new business path could open up for you
All authors become entrepreneurs to some degree. If you market and promote your book properly, you could make money on into the future through sales.
Once you’ve finished one book, the next one will be easier
When the first book is up on amazon.com and selling well, you will find the second book you write will probably take less time and will click into place faster. Plus, if you’ve had success with the first book, you’ll have gained a readership, who will buy your subsequent books based on your reputation.
There are many more reasons why you should write your book, but I hope I have inspired you with these eight. I can tell you that waiting for any length of time is a bad idea. Historically, the people that contact me and then put off starting their project, never actually publish a book.
