What inspires you to write?
I am passionate about people and inspiring them to their maximum performance through my message on leadership. My dream is to help others achieve theirs, and my leadership book series is one method in which to bring that to fruition.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am a personality and story teller. I outline, use main content points, stories and a message theme for each chapter. From there, additional content, frame points, quotes and the packaging of the book is compiled. I used the help of a proven writer, an editor, graphic designers and a team of readers to ensure the final product is worthy of my brand, gets the message across, keeps the reader engaged and is marketable.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Without a known brand or track record of book sales, self-publishing is the way to go. Technology has allowed us to provide e-books and POD books throughout the world, with many marketing channels to support and drive sales. Having a book publisher and distributor is great once established.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
We will continue to see larger publishers focus on big names and brands, book titles they know will sell hundreds of thousands to millions. For the rest, ebooks and POD books will become the norm.
What genres do you write?
Leadership, business, motivational, self help, customer service, sales and marketing
What formats are your books in?
Both eBook and Print
