Claire Cook speaks to real women—our fears and obstacles and hopes and desires—and gives us cutting edge tools to get where we want to go. Bursting with inspiration, insider stories, and practical strategies. Filled with humor, heart, encouragement, and great quotes. You'll hop on a plane with Claire as you figure out the road to your own reinvention. She’ll share her own stories, successes, and failures, as well as those of other reinventors, plus tips for getting a plan, staying on track, pulling together a support system, building your platform in the age of social networking, dealing with the inevitable ups and downs, overcoming perfectionism, and tuning in to your authentic self to propel you toward your goals. A little bit memoir, a lot inspiration, Never Too Late: Your Roadmap to Reinvention (without getting lost along the way) is real, grounded, and just the book you need to start reinventing your life. “Never Too Late is the perfect book for readers who love Claire Cook’s books and wonder how she got to be such a successful author. But the real purpose and accomplishment of the book is the inspiration it provides and the fascinating and amazingly helpful strategies and methods she presents for any women (‘and a few good men’) who really want to achieve what they’ve only dreamed of. The book is about change and opportunity—and how to grab them.”—Pamela Kramer, National Book Reviewer, “Never Too Late resonated with me on a level that I didn’t expect. Still at this moment, I am reviewing all the notes that I took while reading the book.”—Victoria Colotta, ArtBooksCoffee “If you need a personal cheerleader to help you along your road to reinvention, then I highly recommend this book.”—Laurie Nerat, Looking on the Sunnyside “It’s a thought-provoking, inspiring book. If you’ve thought about changing your career and following your passion, Cook’s book just might provide the needed push.”—Lesa’s Book Critiques

This book won't waste your time. It explains the fundamentals leading to investment success while avoiding the all-too-common "dumbed-down" information that just tells readers what they already know. Sophisticated concepts like "marked-to-market" and "the snapback phenomenon" and "Modern Portfolio Theory" are some of the book's themes that can lead to confidence and success as investors. For retirees, the book's purpose is to provide a do-it-yourself course of action allowing for an "end-run" around the financial services industry with the latter's excessive costs --- costs that eat up what could otherwise have been more retirement income. Knowing how to effectively self-manage assets and implement a mix of cost-effective investments is a critical skill for retirees. Understanding and applying some simple basics will deliver the most on-going income while still combating the disasterous effects of inflation.

If you have ever dreamed of writing and publishing your own book, you can realise that dream through self-publishing. Self-publishing is the route many writers choose these days to make their works available to the reading public. Self-publishing today is different from what it used to be many years ago when authors had to spend a lot of money to publish their book. Today, authors can self-publish their book for free or for as little as $100 depending on the self-publishing platform they choose. As a soon-to-be author, the first thing you need to do to self-publish a book is to know your genre. One of the rules of writing is that you should write about what you know. If you have a specific genre that you enjoy reading, chances are that that is the genre you will want or like to write about. Consider your interests and the types of book that you read before you decide on the genre you want to venture into. Your major aim of writing a book should not be to make money. It should be about something you have interest and passion for. There a lot of genres available in both fiction and non-fiction writing. Before you start writing your book, have a plan of what the book will be about and the genre it will fit in. You need to focus on a specific genre when you are writing a book so you can market it. Some books may cross genre lines, such as paranormal and romance books, while some books will fit neatly into a genre. What your book is about should be very clear to the would-be reader so they will be interested in what you have written to want to buy the book. Most readers have the types of books they like to read and have a habit of sticking to a few genres. There are different genres for both fiction and non-fiction books. You need to make sure your book stands out from other books in the same category. If you are writing a romance novel, for instance, how do you make it stand out from other romance novels that are already in the bookstores? This is a question you must answer. Once you have determined your genre and know exactly what you want to write about, you should begin to think of marketing your book. Make it something that prospective readers will choose when they see it in bookstores or online. This will set it apart from other books of the same kind and lure readers to buy it. You can make a career out of self-publishing your books and marketing them to the right audience. After you have decided on what you are going to write about and what will make your book stand out from the rest, you can then begin to outline your book. You should write down an outline of the book and the points you are trying to make. Well-written books convey a message. Make sure your book conveys a good message to the readers that they can take away from the book. Read books in the genre you are interested in writing so you can get the feel for that type of writing. Reading is a very good way to improve writing skills. Before you start to write your book, read the genre that you want to write in and have a good idea of what you want to say in your own book. Get a copy of this book to learn how you can take advantage of the self-publishing opportunities available.

How to Self Publish Your Book

"How to produce a commercial-looking book and avoid all the common pitfalls"--Cover.

Author: Jan Yager


ISBN: 0757004652

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 272

View: 962


A new world has opened to writers who wish to have their words turned into finished books. With technological advances in typesetting, printing, distribution, and sales, self-publishing has become a reality. But while converting your writing into a commercially available title may sound relatively easy--based upon the claims of some companies that offer this service--there are many important considerations you should be aware of before going to press. Publishing expert Dr. Jan Yager has created an easy-to-follow guide that will take you from a book's conception and writing to its production and sales. Whether your work is fiction or nonfiction, How to Self-Publish Your Book offers sound and proven advice at every turn, enabling you to avoid common pitfalls along the way to becoming a self-published author. The book is divided into three parts. Part One takes you through the initial manuscript preparation--setting your goals, writing, sequencing, editing, and proofing, as well as creating a business plan for your book's eventual release. Part Two focuses on the actual production of your book. It explains the importance of cover and interior design, what you need to know about producing physical books and e-books, and how to turn your title into an audiobook. Part Three provides key information on how to market and sell your book--subjects that are crucial to a title's success, but of which most writers have very little understanding. Also included is a valuable resource section that guides you to websites which offer essential information on self-publishing service providers, including complete self-publishing companies as well as freelance editors, proofreaders, printers, distributors, marketers, and publicists. Today, self-publishing workshops and lecturers charge hopeful writers hundreds of dollars, promising to turn their self-published books into bestsellers. The fact is that your book's chance of success starts at its origin, not with the finished product. However you choose to produce your book, whether through a self-publishing company or through separate services, here is a complete road map to what lies ahead--based not on hype or wishful thinking, but on Dr. Jan Yager's lifetime of experience in the world of publishing.

There is currently a silent pandemic leaving millions of people feeling alone and confused, struggling to escape the self-doubt, fear and so many unanswered questions.

If you want to change anything in life, you're going to need to measure it somehow.

Music Publishing covers the basics of how a composition is copyrighted, published, and promoted. Publishing in the music business goes far beyond the physical sheet--it includes live performance and mechanical (recording) rights, and income streams from licensing deals of various kinds. A single song can generate over thirty different royalty streams, and a writer must know how these royalties are calculated and who controls the flow of the money. Taking a practical approach, the authors -- one a successful music publisher and attorney, the other a songwriter and music business professor -- explain in simple terms the basic concept of copyright law as it pertains to compositions. Throughout, they give practical examples from "real world" situations that illuminate both potential pitfalls and possible upsides for the working composers.
