In this interview, I chat with Anita Paul of WriteYourLife.net. Anita’s known as “the Author’s Midwife.” She works with authors and authors-in-the-making to help them take their book ideas from concept to publication. She has coached and consulted with authors of how-to books, memoirs, novels, children’s books, and more. One thing I love about Anita: she’s quick to remind us that our books won’t market or sell themselves. Publication isn’t the end of the journey, and she helps her clients figure out next steps.
Anita is also the author and co-author of several books including How to Market Your Book Free and Write Your Life: Create Your Ideal Life and the Book You’ve Been Wanting to Write.
In addition to her writing and coaching, Anita also hosts Book Your Success, an internet TV show with weekly author interviews. The woman keeps busy!
In this episode, we discuss the excuses many of us have for not completing the books we plan to write and how to get past those obstacles. Anita also shares her 1-3-3-1 outlining system, a simple way to focus on and support the central theme of your book.
Enjoy the show and go write something!
