The Writer's Journey Blueprint
for Your Writing Success:
Tip # 1: Be clear about your motivation and what you want to achieve from writing a book for publication.
Imagine for a moment that you have already achieved your writing dreams. You are enjoying the benefits of successful authorship, new opportunities have opened up in your life and creatively you feel fulfilled. You pause to look back on your journey so far from your current perspective of so much knowledge and experience of writing and the world of publishing.

Tip # 2: If you want to become a published author, prioritise a professional approach, high standards of excellence and action.
Last year was another year of major drama in the publishing industry …
Tip # 3: Be willing to learn from the best sources of inspiration and information available for would-be writers.
When you begin your writing journey, you will probably feel that you need to learn a great deal about the ‘new territory’ you find yourself in. Fortunately, information is available to help you on the path to publication. Yet, making sure that you are learning from the best sources is an important initiation for all writers!
Tip # 4: Create a platform to reach your readers and know that this will help you to attarct the attention of publishers.
Creating a platform to reach your readers directly is an excellent way to attract attention from publishers to help you secure a deal. Yet one of the mistakes that many authors make is to underestimate the importance of putting time and energy into the activities required to develop this area.
Tip # 5: Be prepared to step out of your comfort zone when it comes to pitching and promoting your book.
The Writer’s Journey combines passion for writing about your subject or story with the desire to communicate that message or share that story with as wide an audience as possible. The efforts involved in successfully writing a book for publication are usually surpassed by the rewards gained at the many different levels that writers experience the joys of published authorship
Tip # 6: Give yourself the gift of qualified support to reach your goal of being published.
The Writer’s Journey can be a lonely path. So much of what is involved in the writing process goes on ‘behind the scenes’.
Top Ten Tips 4 Your Writing Success
So what makes my approach different?
1. First of all, my background as a publisher with a publishing track record that includes UK # 1 and international bestsellers means that I really do know the 'inside story' and have firsthand experience of publishing books successfully for markets around the world.
2. Secondly, I have travelled the path from publisher to author, consultant, coach, and mentor, and this enables me to offer the combined perspectives of all these roles for your benefit.
3. Thirdly, I have worked with literally hundreds of authors, many of whom were writing a book for the first time, so my expertise is grounded in practical reality - in short, I know what works!
4. And finally, I coach, mentor and support people on the whole journey from inspiration to publication ... and beyond.
So I don't just focus on helping you to develop your writing skills or engage in marketing or explore self-publishing options.
I offer a total process which includes all aspects of becoming a published author and taking your message successfully out to the marketplace.
