Thumbs Up Essential for both trad and indie authors: How To Be A Professional Author

This post was last modified: 16 Feb 2017 03:04 PM by Bob Mayer.
This book focuses on the strategies and techniques writers need to succeed in today's rapidly changing publishing world.
Write It Forward is the sum of what I’ve learned in 20 years of traditional publishing and 7 years as an indie author and publisher.  I made many mistakes over the years and I wrote this book to keep others from making the same mistakes.  I’ve included where I believe publishing is now and where it’s going.  I also focus on helping writers sort out their own path to Oz, given that each of us are starting from a different place and our vision of Oz is unique to each of us.
For example, can you answer these questions, which Write It Forward poses as exercises and then teaches you how to answer:
What is my strategic goal as a writer?  Where do you want to be in five years?
I’ll do anything to succeed as a writer, except don’t ask me to do . . . . ?
My greatest fear as a writer is?
How high is your ‘imposter syndrome’ as a writer?
Are you in command of your writing career or are you counting on an agent or editor?
Do you know where you stand on the three P’s: Platform, product and promotion?
