Do you have something important to say? Are your knowledge and experience unique, valuable, and in demand? Do you want to write a book that changes the way people think and live? By combining his experience as an educator and entrepreneur, author Gregory V. Diehl teaches passionate thinkers how to turn unique messages into profitable books--without sacrificing royalties or creative control to a publisher. With in-depth advice about all stages of book creation, publication, and marketing, The InfluentialAuthor takes a uniquely grounded and intellectual approach to nonfiction self-publishing. Unlike self-publishing guides that promise to teach you how to write a bestselling book quickly and easily, Diehl's book actually walks you through the complex details of planning, writing, editing, and promoting your work at the standards of traditional publishing. Whether you are an experienced writer or have just started thinking about how to write a nonfiction book, The Influential Author will teach you about: -Combining your passions and experience with reader demand to decide what book to write. -Organizing your knowledge into sections and chapters for maximum comprehension and flow. -Refining your book with feedback from editors, proofreaders, beta readers, and market testing. -Choosing a title, subtitle, description, and cover design that capture your message and create sales. -Pricing and promoting each format of your book (digital, print, and audio) for maximum readership and revenue. Enjoying lifelong passive income, influence, and meaning from your book's success. Publishing a book could be one of the most important things you ever do. Read The Influential Author to begin your path to writing nonfiction books that matter.
