Why Hire a Non-Fiction Writing Coach?

If you’re writing a non-fiction book, like self-help, how to, spiritual, etc, you may find that you come to a point where this writing stuff is making the hair on your head fall out.

Bravely Chipping Away for a New Edition

If writing is a blast of creativity, self-editing is like painfully clawing away the clutter. Not only that, non-fiction editing requires a good deal of fact-checking and a good memory for what’s been said before. It’s bold work to do. This week I have been revising my book, Power Marketing: An Aussie Guide to Business Growth (edition 3). And because there are so many book, statistic and website references, plus grammar checking, it needed a lot of updating. I can’t imagine what those Dummies book authors have to do… This…

It’s my pleasure to introduce DL (Dwight) of Redeemable Media, a Podcast producer, host, and expert on this topic. 1. Can you describe how you started your business in podcasting?

How Do I Make Writing Each Day a Habit?

Of course, it’s hard to ‘get time’ to write something for your book each day. That’s why you must make writing a habit. I’m sure if you’ve read the book ‘Atomic Habits’, you’ll know just how powerful it can be to instil some good habits. Look what it did for me!
