Every author, every book, needs a Platform. It’s the stage, the very foundation of your book and authoring business. It will take a Village to create it and you are the Mayor. Platforms don’t happen overnight.
In this show, Judith Briles, The Book Shepherd, will guide you to:
· Identifing which publishing venue is right for you;
· Creating the time and space to create your masterpiece;
· Finding which Internet and social media features will work for your book:
· Learning the components of creating a successful book launch
She will also share the secrets of her Platform which created in excess of $4 million dollars over a 30-year career.  
Platforms start with a statement of fact: why you wrote the book; why you are the author for it; why you are committed to its theme/topic; and what value you bring to the reader. You do it with Confidence, Clarity, Competence and Commitment.
Your Platform consists of three key ingredients: Vision, Passion and Commitment. When those are in place, the people can, and will, come. And so will your book sales.
