    Write a book they say but how do you get started?

    in Current Events

    So what is your book, they say.  Where are you published, some ask.  What is your story is the new mantra.  Have you been hearing all these words and just don't have an answer?  Or do you have tons of pieces of writings that sit in notebooks or on the computer with no power behind them?  Are you totally overwhelmed at the process of putting things together to have a 'book'?  What does having a book on the market mean these days?  Remember the 'old' days when you needed a publisher to 'like' you and give his personal opinion whether or not you would sell?  Gone are those days and none too soon.  Time to release your new story and share you with the world.  Are you ready?  Take a leap!!

    Shanda Trofe, author, publisher and writing coach will be sharing how to take your idea through to a print book with the greatest of ease.  She is the founder of Spiritual Writers Network and Transcendent Publishing and her books are Write from the Heart and Illuminations of the Soul which are great examples of her process in writing.  She also has an online class throughout the year with several other writing ventures you may join at any time.

    in Writing

    Hey Behind the Prosers,

    I know you've been waiting for part two of the awesome interview with Gwen Hernandez, and here it is! In this episode we talk about crafting introductions, how the writing software Scrivener helps "plotters" and "pantsers" - (listen to find out which one you are), how Hernandez uses Scrivener to structure her books with four parts, and what about self-publishing appealed to her and how she's done so successfully with her romantic suspense novels.

    I've got many great authors cued up for you in the next several episodes including:

    Dinty W. Moore's Creative Nonfiction Writers' Conference Presentation (Dinty has a great new book out by the way! If you write, you should def add it to your library.)

    Sean Ennis, author of Chase Us, a collection of short stories

    Susan Shapiro, New York Times Bestselling author of What's Never Said, a novel

    How to write a For Dummies book with Gwen Hernandez, Scrivener For Dummies

    in Writing

    Many writers might covet a byline on one of the most popular educational, instructional series ever, the For Dummies line published by Wiley. 

    But not many can snag that gig. For Gwen Hernandez, her story shows how a writer follows a passion that puts her in the “right place at the right time” to compete for a contract on Wiley. In other words, it’s the magic of the universe and Gwen’s quite familiar with the serendipity of things.

    In this candid interview, which will be released in two parts, we break down how Gwen matched the witty and quick voice that is trademark to the stories, how she organized a 400-page book (hint, hint), and whether landing a For Dummies book deal means she’s hit the big time.

    How to Write a Book in 2 hours Author shares publishing secrets

    in Entrepreneur

    Host of Successipes,Lori Wilk welcomes the CEO of Next Century Publishing, the founder of ReadersLegacy.com ,author of multiple best-selling books, Kenn Dunn to talk about latest book: "Learn How to Write a Book in Two Hours."

    At first I wanted to believe the title of the book was about writing a book in two hours and I was so ready . I thought, " If  Ken can teach me to write a book in two hours, I'm going to take 8 hours and write 4 books. Then, you two can help me publicisze them. This would be the push in the right direction for completion and publishing that most authors are seeking." 

    Then, reality hit, the best anyone can do is learn how to write a book in 2 hours, not actually write it.- It's a process and there are steps in the process to be followed so you write a quality book that gets into the hands of the right audience to be a success. I can't wait for the interview. 

    Michelle Colon Johnson will be honored by Ken at his upcoming Author event in Las Vegas June 4-7 at the JW Marriott. Ken is also the founder and CEO of Reader's Legacy launching in June.

    Stay tuned and tune-in for insights, information and inspiration.
