Write a Book That Makes a Difference
What message do you want or need to share with the world? Are you ready to add your voice to the conversation, expand your impact, and influence others as an author?
Write the book you wish to see into the world.
Get the Word Out is a guide to writing a nonfiction book or memoir grounded in a sense of purpose.
This practical and inspiring book offers advice for every phase of the journey, from clarifying your concept and owning your authority to drafting the manuscript and doing the important work after publication.
Whether you’re an industry thought leader seeking to expand your impact or someone with a tiny following and a big idea, this book will help you approach your book project with clarity, confidence, and commitment:
Clarity about your message, your audience, and your vision for the book
Confidence in your expertise, authority, and ability to write the book
Commitment to see the book through to publication and spread the word beyond
You won’t find a quick-and-easy recipe or a promise of a best-seller in this book. You will find suggested exercises, original research from a survey of hundreds of nonfiction authors, and stories and advice from other authors who write difference-making books.
Many authors report that they wish they’d written their books sooner. What are you waiting for?
“The reader comes away not just with a message, not just with a plan, but with a mentor… The book moves beyond prescriptive nonfiction, and the reader receives not only information but connection.”
