Being a published author is a great way to showcase your expertise and can open the door to numerous opportunities. In fact, according to Ann “having a book is your calling card. It helps you to build rapport and relationships.”

Not sure where to start? Ann shares the very first step that you’ll need to take to get started in writing your book.

Unsure how to structure your book so that it makes sense? Ann shows you how you can easily organize your notes and resources, into sequential order, which can later become the chapters of your book.

Are you still concerned that you won’t be able to find the right words? Ann shares a fantastic technique that she has used with numerous clients that has helped them to get their book out of their heads and onto paper. This technique is sure to help you bust through your writers block.

Ann also talks about the different options for publishing your book. No longer do you have to rely on the major publishers and hope that they will publish your book.

Print on demand publishing is a fantastic way to publish your book, whether you want 10 copies, 50 copies, or even 5 copies.

“Dedication, determination and discipline are vital when it comes to writing your book,” says Ann. Follow her steps and you too can be a published author in just 8 weeks.
