As I watched the movie, The Lorax, this past weekend for the very first time, I fell in love with its message about planting seeds! January typically has us thinking about RE-solutions — a time for planting “thought seeds” to help us work better, feel better, and function better.
“When you plant a seed, it’s not about what it IS . . .
it’s about what it will BECOME!” — The Lorax (via Dr. Seuss)
To help us plant our seeds for growth, many start their new year by reaching out to a personal or business coach for help. If you are thinking about writing a book, you would contact an Author Consultant, a Book Coach, a Publishing Mentor, a Book Shepherd or someone with a similar title.
Recently, it seems like just about everyone who has self-published a book claims to be an expert at teaching you how to write a book. In the wild-wild-world of self-publishing, there are a lot of people out there who are willing to share what they know, based upon their own experiences. But, there’s a HUGE difference between hiring an Author Consultant/Book Coach and hiring someone who has recently self-published one or two books.
You may be able to get some great advice from these novices, but they are only able to give you advice based on their own limited experience.
Sadly, I meet a lot of authors who say things like, “My neighbor just published her first book and she said ________________ ” (fill in the blank).
I can literally feel my heart sink as they begin to tell me the UN-professional advice they followed, thinking it would help them save money or time. I can see it in their eyes and hear it in their voice . . . following this person’s advice has cost them money and time, with little or nothing to show.
An EXPERIENCED Author Consultant, on the other hand, will help you . . .
- Minimize your investment
- Maximize your return on royalties
- Retain 100% of your profits
- Secure ownership of your copyright
- Access global distribution
- Avoid self-publishing pitfalls
