New Release – Busting Writing Myths

We have a new release – Busting Writing Myths

Busting Writing Myths

Busting Writing Myths

This was a fun book to research. It’s amazing how many writers and successful authors have fallen into the trap of believing these myths at some point in their career. And I’m not excluding myself from that group. We all fall prey to believing myths because they are convenient for us to do so. But if you’re aware of them before they try to get you you’ll fair better at warding them off.

Also I think you’ll enjoy the ditch the desk bonus section. This section jumps right into telling your desk you can write any where I want. I give you ideas of places you can go to get away from your desk and rediscover your creativity.

Here’s a short description of the book.

There are many myths about writing and if you fall into the trap of believing them you’ll seriously hamper your creativity and ability to write. We’ll cover the most common myths and how you can keep them under control. In not believing in the myths you will be in control of your writing success.

Included with Busting Writing Myths you’ll also enjoy the bonus section Ditch the Desk – Find your creativity and time to write.

Raffle Prizes and Silent Auctions – Book Marketing

If you’re giving a talk or belong to a group that has a raffle or silent auction during their meeting donate your book or other product you’ve created. Of course you’ll want the winner to have a personalized signed copy. If you’re not speaking ask your network if they need a donation to their raffle or silent auction.

All my books are in e-book format so how do I give books away. I use Smashwords as one of my distributors. I can create coupon codes for any of my books. When I donate a book(s) to a raffle I create a code and put it on a nice certificate. I also make small gift bags with items that relate to my book with the certificate enclosed. It all depends on the group or organization you’re dealing with.

Always be open to an opportunity to market your book.
