Writing books in the 21st century

Want or need to write a book? Take our free webinar "Every Trick in the Book—How to start your book fast and finish strong to boost your career—and even change the world!"

Last century, writers loved to tell this joke: A writer and brain surgeon meet at a cocktail party. The brain surgeon sips his martini and says, “I’m planning to take next summer off and write a book.”  The writer nods enthusiastically. “What a coincidence!” she says. “I’m planning to take next summer off and do brain surgery!”  

Writing is a profession, just like being an engineer, doctor, or teacher, and it takes years of practice to perfect.

But times have changed. Print-on-demand and self-publishing have toppled the barriers of conventional publishing. As a result, you can more easily produce books to take your career to the next level and share your expertise or unique viewpoint with a wider audience. 

But you still need to write them! 

Longtime colleague Virginia McCullough and I are offering a free webinar to help you do just that: Every Trick in the Book—How to start your book fast and finish strong to boost your career—and even change the world! 

We’ll show you how to fit writing a book into your busy schedule. You’ll discover ways to kick-start your creativity and double your writing speed. And you’ll learn how to draw inspiration from your favorite authors.
