I have a great idea for a book – now what?

I have a great idea for a book - now what? (lightbulb image)To publish a book, you first have to write one. But where do you begin? How do you channel your creativity? Organize your thoughts and notes? Find the time, energy and resources you need? Discipline yourself and maintain momentum? Stay the course when you get blocked?

This session will answer these questions and help you develop a strategic plan to launch your book and get it into readers’ hands.

In this 90-minute class you will learn to:

  • Assess whether or not your great idea is truly great (e.g., doable, engaging, marketable).
  • Determine what skills, resources, time and support systems you need.
  • Identify inevitable pitfalls and blocks, and ways to work around them.
  • Develop realistic project goals and timetables to ensure you finish your book.
  • Maintain your momentum.
