Creating and Building Your Author and Book Platforms

by Dr. Judith Briles

Reading Author YOU: Creating and Building the Author and Book Platforms and integrating the Author YOU Model will create a significant advantage over other authors who use the hit-and-miss method for their book journey. Most authors write (a good thing); few get their work professionally edited (a bad thing); and fewer still understand the dollars, cents and sense of the publishing game (another bad thing). By using the steps and guides on the roadmap included throughout what’s in your hands, you move into the top tier of authors. You gain author power and presence … and success … the success that you seek, as you, and only you define it.
The Author YOU Model reveals the Village that will create the stepping stones to your success. It will deliver the goods to soar you through the author and book noise … to be heard above the crowd. It will save you thousands of dollars by keeping you focused and avoiding costly errors. It identifies your options so that you have a better grasp of which road is best for you. And it empowers you to clear the clutter. Get ready for a visual journey. I’ve structured many books using Post-its®—different sizes and colors to mark chapters, themes within them, stories and key points. You will find them within Author YOU: Creating and Developing the Author and Book Platforms. Get out your pen … you’ve got a series of Activities, all designed to develop the Author YOU in You.
