“I have to do it myself”. “I can’t do it by myself”. “Who can I trust?”…these questions and more have probably popped into your head if you are looking to write a book—to share your story—with the world. With so many decisions to make, RTC President Corey Blake offers insight into the 5 options that are available for those who are ready to take on this purpose-filled venture.
The story you need to tell consists of many pieces, and we often get trapped because we think we have to put those pieces together from the very start. Like a puzzle, there are parts that stand out and missing pieces that we don’t know where they belong yet. By taking the right steps at the start of the process, you will surely create a beautiful piece of art.
Each book creates a relationship with the reader…your job as an author is to create the one on one relationship that the reader is looking for, a relationship that often has them begging for more to the point that they can’t simply put the book down. By sharing a story that is vulnerable, honest, and truly depicts the essence of who you are, you are inviting the reader into more than just a story, you are inviting them into your soul.
There are many reasons to write a book, many of them aren’t all that great. If you hone in on the wonderful, powerful reasons to write your book, you are on the right track. Before the gun goes off, knowing what is possible at the finish line will help you overcome any hurdle that may come up along the way.
