About Mimi Emmanuel:
I became a bestselling author in 2015 with my book MY STORY OF SURVIVAL. This book listed as an Amazon #1 bestseller in over 10 categories and aims to give comfort and hope to people who suffer from serious illnesses. I lived on just ten ingredients in total for a period of 5 years. This diet turned out to be the ultimate low reactive diet which can help anyone who is intolerant to dairy, gluten, sugar, grains, meat, beans, lentils, seeds, nuts, soya and eggs. The yummiest part of the diet, as far as I’m concerned, is the oodles of faith.
In 2016 MIMI’S BOOK LAUNCH PLAN became a #1 Amazon bestseller in about 6 categories. This book was written for my launch team and contains the diary notes I made whilst launching MY STORY OF SURVIVAL to help Indie Authors and Entrepreneurs launch their book on Amazon.
A few months later I published GOD HEALED ME which lists the 24 Scripture Verses on Healing which helped me recover from potentially fatal medical emergencies. One reader said, “This is a beautiful book. Mimi’s words are peaceful, healing and empowering to anyone on any type of life-changing journey. This book will give you hope and strength.”
When I’m not writing or launching books I love chatting with and encouraging fellow authors, hanging out with friends and family and spending time with my new puppy Layla-Joy.
What inspires you to write?
I like to share all the good things that are happening in my life with others so that they can enjoy this too and may benefit.
Tell us about your writing process.
I have an idea and scribble an outline on a bit of paper and from there I just write. If my arms, shoulders, elbows and hands would allow it, I could write all day. I stop before they start to ache and get sore and make sure they get enough rest so that I can write some more. The computer screen is too bright for me so I have an alpha smart which is great for just writing without a computer. I write haphazardly, not daily because of those limitations. That’s the process for me. I’m looking into the speech to text software because that will probably work very well for me.
What advice would you give other writers?
Just do it! Don’t think about it. Just do it.
Learn how to do it properly. Do you need help with grammar? Get help with grammar. Do you need help with structure? Get help with structure. Do what you can and get help with the rest. Make it the best you can make it.
Research well, get beta readers, get feedback, adjust and amend and the way you go!
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I researched all options thoroughly. I bought a course from Michael Hyatt and listened though much of the material and in the end decided to go with Self Publishing School for the publication and launch because this way I am in control whilst more experienced people hold my hand and guide me through the process. I did this alongside other authors and writers and it was the best decision I ever made. The back-up is phenomenal and the course is top notch. Couldn’t be happier.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It will all level out and I can see audio books become quite big. People can listen to this as they travel, vacuum etc.
Definitely consider creating an audio version of your book.
