What do I do special as a writing coach?

I just woke up to a question/discussion on Linkedin’s Promocave: Carrie Golden, Citizen Journalist/Poetry Consultant to film-makers at Motionpoems, Inc., asked: Writing coach… Not sure if this group [Promocave] is the right place to post this question but…what exactly does a writing coach do to help writers? ——————- I wear two hats (on one head): […]

Leading your idea in print down its most profitable path…

So you’ve got an article or book idea that you want to turn into both big money and widely-seen expertise presence. That’s the way to think!

Article you’re submitting need a sidebar? Here’s an example…

Typically, as I write a “go-ahead” article, I encounter some additional facts that are so spectacular or unique I think they would make an interesting sidebar or box, in or near the printed article, to excite the readers and add much substance to the article without changing its primary structure.

The most important / most profitable reason to self-publish

I enjoy and learn a lot from Bob Bly’s frequent missives. (See www.bly.com). We sort of walk and work the same side of the street regarding professional writing and publishing, and we both agree on the importance of strategizing first, then following up with processes that work. So the other day when Bob offered five […]

How can I make my self-published memoir a big seller?

It’s doable but very hard. It takes a combination of good things, some not much in your control. A starting definition is required: what is a “big seller”?

Can we sell two new books by using 12,200 jumbo postcards?

At 11” x 6,” the postcards are big enough to cover other books already on the potential buyer’s desk. But the real issue is, are the cards clever enough to lovingly pick the buyers’ pocket? Said another way, it will cost us about $6500 to get the sales missive done right and delivered on time. […]

Multiply your book’s sales by turning your book into 6

Here’s how that works. Let’s say that you have written a book that is 240 body-copy pages long, excluding the front matter, table of contents, bio, and index.
