So, you want to write a book…but where do you begin? You have creativity, wisdom and stories to share, but how do they go from being ideas to being published?
In Author Acceleration, author and publisher Krista Dunk shares her knowledge and insights to help aspiring authors write books their readers will love. Many people have books inside them, books other people need to read, and carry them around for years, never releasing them. Whether they’ve started writing and gotten stuck or never dared to even try, there are common obstacles that can stop authors in their tracks. Krista addresses these author obstacles, giving readers practical solutions and new perspective to help them succeed. Author Acceleration also gives aspiring authors an excellent foundation of knowledge for how to develop the concept and content for their books, writing and skill building, publishing options, and book marketing ideas. If you’re ready to write, be sure you have this book in your author toolbelt!
For some people, being an author is a calling. For some, writing and storytelling is where their creativity lies. For others, they feel compelled to tell their story and impact people. Still for others, being an author is a hobby. Whether you write as a hobby, have a calling or hope to make writing your full-time work, all of those take dedication, know-how and help.
For those who like the idea of being able to self-publish as many books as they have in their hearts and minds, it’s very possible. You can do it with a little support and know-how. Like learning to ride a bike when you were six or to drive when you were 15, this author thing can be mastered and won’t be perplexing anymore!
As authors, we have a great opportunity. Our voice and message in written form can be far-reaching, going even beyond our lifetimes. We have a weighty responsibility. Our words will influence others, even those we may never meet. We have a unique creative outlet and expression. Authorship affords us a special way to release the gifts, messages, creativity and wisdom God has placed inside each of us. Being an author is an amazing thing.
After the many things I’ve done in my lifetime, I believe #AuthorLife is the best life. What will author life look like for you? I hope it is filled with joy and a confident satisfaction, knowing you’ve written many books your readers love and have made a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
