Admit it: There’s a book you’ve always wanted to write bouncing around your head somewhere.

It’s revolutionary; it'll change the world! But you have no idea where to begin. 

Well, you’re not alone. 

When people find out I’ve written books, they always have a ton of questions. It seems like everyone has a great idea for a book, but just getting started seems so daunting, let alone actually finishing one or getting people to read it. 

So, where do you begin?

To answer this, I brought on someone onto the show who knows more than a thing or two about writing: Allen Gannett, author of “The Creative Curve.” 

He shared some great tips for anyone hoping to take on the difficult, but rewarding, challenge of writing a book. 

Here’s what we’re unpacking today:

  • The questions you need to answer before anything else
  • The difference between self-publishing and a publisher
  • Getting an agent
  • Writing a proposal
  • How to market your book
  • Why you need to find your niche
