Do you want to write your first book this year? So do I! I’m knee deep in the process already but when I first got started, I know I had swirling thoughts like, “…umm, how do I do that?!”
My special guest today is Elizabeth Kracht and she is simplifying how to write your first book. If you’ve never done it before, it can be a mystifying and harrowing process. Do you self-publish or not? Do you write the whole book or just start with a rough outline? And where in the world do you meet a literary agent?? So many questions… all the questions! Don’t worry, I asked them ALL for you.
My hope is that today’s conversation spins you in the right direction if you’re just getting started on writing your first book.
In this episode, you will learn: What the very first step is that you need to take once you’ve decided to write a book A few questions that’ll help you define the core building blocks of your book and ensure you stay on track throughout the entire writing process. How to decide which genre is the very best for the message you want to convey and she shared a few different genre options that are best if you’re writing a non-fiction book What elements you’ll need to include in your book proposal. All about the bells and whistles… what are a few additional features that you could include in your book that would make it a richer reading experience and more exciting for your reader? How to format your book, especially if you’re publishing in the US Just remember… anything new is going to be a wee bit scary at first. Riding a bike, going scuba diving, or even when you take the leap to write your first book. My hope is that today’s conversation gives you a little more confidence and a whole lot of spark to go out and #dothething!
