If you want to write a book that's going to sell to both publishers and readers, you need to know how to produce a marketable work and help it become successful. It starts the moment you have an idea. That's when you begin thinking about the first elements of the business plan that will make your project the best it can be. The reality is that you don't want to spend time and energy writing a book that will never get read. The way to avoid that is to create a business plan for your book, and evaluate it (and yourself) through the same lens that an agent or acquisitions editor would. The Author Training Manual will show you how to get more creative and start looking at your work with those high standards in mind. Whether you're writing fiction or non-fiction, or intend to publish traditionally or self-publish, author Nina Amir will teach you how to conduct an effective competitive analysis for your work and do a better job at delivering the goods to readers than similar books that are already on the shelf. Packed with step-by-step instructions, idea evaluations, sample business plans, editor and agent commentaries, and much more, The Author Training Manual provides the information you need to transform from aspiring writer to career author.

Kathi Kamen Goldmark’s first novel, And My Shoes Keep Walking Back to You, earned praise from an assortment of well-known authors including Amy Tan, Maya Angelou, Scott Turow, Judy Collins, Rita Mae Brown, Carl Hiaasen, and Roddy Doyle; and received positive reviews in O, the Oprah Magazine, the Miami Herald, the San Francisco Chronicle, and other publications. Completed shortly before her untimely death from breast cancer, Goldmark’s Her Wild Oats is a honky-tonk road story about two unlikely pals: A smart young woman, Arizona Rosenblatt, leaves home and her role as assistant to a high-powered Hollywood executive when she discovers her husband is having an affair with a woman from Jews for Jesus; and thirteen-year-old Otis Ray “Wild Oats” Pixlie, boy genius harmonica player. In the end, Otis Ray learns what it means to be an adult, Arizona discovers the life she wants, and they both figure out the true meaning of love and family.

The Only One Thing You Need to Finish Your Book. Write. Yes, that's it. Just write. Write every day, as much as you can. Keep a notebook by your bedside so you can write down inspired dreams. Keep another pocket-sized notebook with you at all times so you can write any time you come up with something that should be in that book. Set up an area where you can write daily without being disturbed. Some people write after the kids are asleep. One author came to work two hours early in order to write in an empty office. Another wrote during his two-hour commute, with noise-canceling headphones. Regardless, you have to start writing. Today. Every day. Don't skip a day. No excuses. Because when you write, you make progress. If you don't write, you don't make progress. Books don't write themselves. You don't want to die with a book still inside you. (Well, most people don't, if given the option.) Write. Write daily. Write as much as you can. When you're done writing, start editing. If you find something is missing while you're editing, then stop editing and start writing. When you're done, then start editing again. Once you're done writing and editing both, then get someone else to proof it. Correct your errors, and self-proof it again. Then send it out to someone else to proof again. It doesn't have to be perfect. But it does need to get written. If it's longer than 2500 words, you can publish it on Amazon. Some people call it a short story. But if that's all the longer your book is, then it's a book. That brings up another thing: Quit comparing yourself to anyone else. That just messes up your head. You're an individual, so is everyone else. No two people are the same. No two authors write the same book (not any honest authors, anyway.) Your point is to write, then edit, then proof, then publish. If you want to write another book after that point, then start again. But you'll never get to your second book until you finish your first one. And if you only have a single book in you, that's fine. Most people do. But you have to live your own life. "Begin with the end in mind." said Socrates. So start writing already. (From Chapter 3) Get Your Copy Now.

RITA FINALIST—ROMANTIC SUSPENSE Fisher Braun knows how to keep a secret. As a covert paramilitary operative, his job—and his life—depends on it. He’s at the top of his game, ready for action and always in control. No enemy has ever brought him to his knees, but one lover has: Zachary Allen, the man currently sharing his bed. The perfect package of brains and brawn, Zach is someone worth coming home to, and Fisher hates keeping him in the dark about what he does. But the lies keep Zach safe. Until the day Fisher loses everything. . . . Zachary Allen is no innocent civilian. Although he plays the tech geek, in reality he’s deep undercover for the CIA. In a horrible twist of fate, the criminal enterprise he’s infiltrated has set its sights on the man whose touch drives him wild. Zach would do anything for Fisher—except blow his own cover. Now, in order to save him, Zach must betray him first. And he needs Fisher to trust him with all his heart if they want to make it out alive.
