Here is a quick tip from an author I’ve worked with who is a minister with a lot of different topics on her mind: write out a list of your top 5-10 topics that you would like to speak on and ask 10 people-5 women and 5 men-which are the top 3 topics that are most relevant to their life right now and that they would like to learn more about.
This does not mean that the topics they do not choose are not great topics for a book, but publishing is all about meeting the needs of your audience-in this case your readers-so let their needs and interest choose for you. This is a great step to complete before booking your free consultation with me so we can discuss how you can turn your vision for a book into a reality.
After you use the strategy above to help you focus on a certain topic, here are a couple of articles that explain how to develop that topic into a book that will make an impact:
- Define Your Book Message First and Avoid Abstract Writing Chaos
- Don’t Talk to Strangers: Guides for Writing to Your Target Audience
If you’re feeling really adventurous and you don’t mind taking the topic you identified through the activity and articles above to another level, feel free to dive into these DIY writing guides to jump-start your book and send me any questions you have along the way so we can turn your consultation into an active workshop:
- Organize Your Book Non-Fiction Book Ideas in Three Steps
- Which Writing Style Matches Your Personality?
- How Do I Write A Book?
Don’t hesitate to email me any comments or questions you have along the way. Each article is followed by a comments section, so you can even use that space to send me any comments or questions because I respond to them quickly as well.
