Write Your Way Into the New Year with Your New Book!

Who do you Know who Needs a Book in 2014? |

"Please think about your legacy, because you’re writing it every day." ~Gary Vaynerchuck

"A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit." ~Richard Bach

1. Are you at a point in your career and life where you are ready to write a book?

2. Do you have an idea for your book, and are looking for guidance on how to start?

3. Do you already have written material, and are seeking for direction with an authentic edge along with organization, strategy, and structured format?

4. Do you already have a completed book (as far as content is concerned) and are in need of directional guidance? Perhaps finding yourself overwhelmed with critical decisions to make concerning:

     a.  Self-publishing vs. Publishing
     b.  Softcover (paperback) vs. Hardcover vs. eBook
     c.  Distribution (local, nationwide, international/foreign rights)
     d.  Packaging (positioning and design) and Printing
     e.  Representation (re-packaging, brand development worldwide)
     f.   Sales (Combination of distribution, promotion, representation, marketing and time)
     g.  Marketing and Promotion, just to name a few.

5.  Do you find yourself stuck in a place where fear, anxiety, and doubts are your biggest challenges in the way of your writing endeavors, ready to break out of your shell?

If your answer is “YES” to any one of the questions above, we have tremendous news for you!

About Motivational Press

With over 75 top best-selling titles in the past two years alone, Motivational Press is the leading publisher of non-fiction titles worldwide. Specializing in business, self-help, health and wellness, finance, and leadership, Motivational Press has quickly become a renowned leader in publishing, distribution, marketing, and promotions for their authors.  

In the words of Justin Sachs, CEO of Motivational Press:

"Nothing is more powerful to one's clients nor empowering to oneself than to have a book. There's almost this magical aurora that an author gets that transforms their credibility, skyrockets their visibility, and enhances their overall success."

Common Flaw in Self-Publishing

“It is easier to do a job right than to explain why you didn’t. ” ~Martin Van Buren 

According to an article in Forbes, written by Suw Charman-Anderson, “If there’s a common flaw in self-publishing, it’s that too many books are published too soon. Experienced voices across the publishing world continually advise self-publishers to get help with editing, and not just copyediting but story editing too.”

Forbes contributor then continues on by asking two poignant questions:  

1.  "Do you really want, in five or ten years time, to look back on your early work and cringe?  More to the point,

2.  Do you really want your first act of publishing to result in the irreversible blotting of your copybook with your potential fans?"

Referring back to Martin Van Buren's quote above, better to get the job done right head on than having to explain why you didn't later when you had the choice.  By investing your three valuable assets of time, energy, and finances in doing the job right from the start, you will be gaining and generating time, energy, and revenues in the long-term.  Equally important, you will be recognized and respected for stellar work, as opposed to "your name being married permanently, to sub-standard work which doesn’t show off your talents to their best" (the text in quotes is taken from Forbes article referenced above).

10 Writing Nuggets to Help You Stay on Track

1.  “Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new.” ~Og Mandino

2.  “A writer writes not because he is educated but because he is driven by the need to communicate. Behind the need to communicate is the need to share. Behind the need to share is the need to be understood.” ~Leo Rosten

3.  "Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.” ~John Jakes

4.   "Details make stories human, and the more human a story can be, the better. …The first draft of anything is sh*t." ~Ernest Hemingway

5.  “A vocabulary of truth and simplicity will be of service throughout your life.” ~Winston Churchill

6.  “To get the truth, you want to get your own heart to pound while you write.” ~Robert McKee

7.  "Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you've got to say, and say it hot." ~D.H. Lawrence

8.  “You can sit there, tense and worried, freezing the creative energies, or you can start writing something. It doesn't matter what. In five or ten minutes, the imagination will heat, the tightness will fade, and a certain spirit and rhythm will take over.” ~Leonard Bernstein

9.  "If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it." ~Toni Morrison

10. "Make it simple. Make it memorable. Make it inviting to look at. Make it fun to read." ~Leo Burnett
