Book Writing Coach
There are a lot of people out there who claim to be experts at coaching you on how to write a book. Many of them are completely full of hot air!
The first thing you have to do when thinking about hiring a book writing coach is: WHAT DO YOU WANT THEM TO DO FOR YOU?
1. Get you an agent?
2. Get you a publisher?
3. Help you through the process of actually writing?
4. Get you listed with the wholesalers?
To me, all of these questions are superfluous. The single most important question to ask a book writing coach is: CAN YOU HELP ME MAKE MORE MONEY? Ask them!
If they give you a puzzled look . . . MOVE ON!
There are a lot of barely scraping by writers who have turned themselves into “book sheppards.” Got to love that name. It reaks of new age horsecrap! Most of these folks have a vague idea of how to get your book written, but unless you’re writing the book to get a warm feeling inside, you better ask them some tough questions.
I have helped a lot of people write books. But there’s a big difference. My help has been to get them to create a PUBLISHING BUSINESS in which ONE STEP of the process is book writing. If you don’t care about making money, be a sheep and get a sheppard. If you want to make more cash, come talk to me!
