What's Missing in your Nearly Finished Book?
Judy Cullins c. 2005
Bookcoaching clients come to me at different stages of writing their
books. The ones who start from ground zero with a coach and learn
what goes into each chapter to make it more readable and sell better.
The ones who have been writing a long time, a year or so even. They
often leave the project because they ran out of gas--got stuck what
to do next. They may think they can manifest their book dream now
and make millions.
You want to build your reputation. You want to use your book to
brand your business and attract new clients. If your book is almost
ready and you think it's ready for a publisher or self-publishing,
You may just need a line editor who can certainly use "grammar
check" and put those commas where they belong. But, if you
need to know if your book will sell well, you need to get feedback
on a few parts of your book so far. A sample chapter, a table of
contents, these are just the beginning of what you need to hit the
top selling book charts. If you contact a professional bookcoach
or consultant, she will notice if you answered your audience's major
questions that led them to buy your book..
Ask yourself, does my book benefit my audience in each chapter
so they will finish it, finish the book and recommend it to others?
