Praise and Reviews Essential guidance on communicating clearly, tightly and with style. `...Timothy Foster provides unparalleled guidance on the whole subject..` THE FORUM FOR ASSOCIATES OF THE INSTITUTE FOR INDEPENDENT BUSINESS, August 2002 IMPROVE YOUR TECHNIQUE EXPRESS YOURSELF POWERFULLY WRITE WITH STYLE MAKE A GREAT IMPRESSION Many of the people you want to reach today will do almost anything to avoid the act of reading. They look. They scan. They skip lengthy text. They allow distractions to destroy what little concentration they have. They give up before absorbing your message correctly. Combine this fact with the prevailing trend to outsourcing and self-employment, which often means those who never thought of themselves as writers must now take on that task, and you have a difficult situation. The need for excellence in written communication has never been greater, especially in today's corporations, organisations and one-man bands. Better Business Writing provides essential guidance on communicating clearly, tightly and with style. Expert author Timothy R V Foster takes you through the whole subject with helpful advice and practical checklists. He covers all the important issues, including: clarifying the audience to be reached; choosing a structure to fit the task; understanding different text styles and when to use them; creating advertisements and direct mail to get results; composing articles, speeches and scripts to inform and enthuse; making business proposals and presentations to win; producing books, manuals and brochures that work; developing effective Web sites, multimedia and e-mails.

The craft of writing and marketing a book has changed significantly over the past 10 years. It is no longer enough to just write a good book; you have to write for a specific audience and connect to your readers long before the book hits the shelves. Releasing part of your work early allows you to make adjustments to your book—or even discard your project entirely in order to invest your time into a better book idea. Using modern project management methods, you can organize your work into individual steps ("user stories"), and reuse them to market your book. Organizing the book into logical sections helps you to create preview materials for blog posts or newsletters. In addition, this will ensure that you make steady progress, avoid getting lost in the details and achieve high quality consistently throughout your book. --- Do you recognize yourself in one of these people? This book is for "Peter." - First-time author. - Has a "complete" script, "had a friend look at it," and now wants to publish it. - Might need (unsolicited) advice to properly edit it instead of just going through a "self-edit." - Needs to be reminded about the difficulties of selling a book. Has no idea about marketing. - Has not worked with an editor. - Creates his own book covers. - Would benefit from a "pep talk." This book is for "Mary." - Writes novels in Word but now wants to write a non-fiction book. - Undecided about what tools to use. - Works with an editor, but she and her editor have no real work structure. - Does not know how to market, find market niches, etc. Her past successes were random, and she never knew if her latest novel would sell or not. This book is for "John." - Professional editor seeking to expand his services from merely editing Word files to helping release books online. - Also is looking for better project management techniques to help guide an author along the way. - Often works in scientific fields and thus has to manage a lot of bibliographical references. - Spends lots of time indexing books. - Is OK with a LaTeX template but seeks to get a head start by making adjustments to it. This book is for "George." - LaTeX expert who wants to publish his work as an e-book. - Needs basic direction and then figures out the rest on his own. - Plans to do a series with a glossary and often needs to reuse blocks of text. - Needs some help in terms of book design, polishing, and graphics. - Loves to share work and collaborate with others. This book is for "Tina." - Professional self-publisher who is seeking additional ideas to improve her publishing process. - Looks for ways to establish herself as a brand and create a network of readers. This book is for "Clara." - Wants to write a book about her profession in order to establish herself as an expert but has no idea where to start. --- Table of Contents: - Great Expectations - Incorporate Books into Your Professional Career - Starting a New Book - What to Keep and What to Remove - Selecting Personas - How to Organize Your Ideas - How to Organize Your Ideas (Fiction Books) - The Rules of Your Book - How to Optimize the Work Process - How to Get Early Feedback from Readers - How We Can Help with Project Management
