Have you thought about writing a book, but you’re not  sure what’s involved or even if it’s worth it?

My guest today, Julie Broad of Book Launchers, answers the questions you have about the process of writing, publishing, and promoting a book.

You’ll hear towards the end of the episode what’s the best way to promote and sell your book – and it’s not social media.

We talk about:

  • The advantages of self-publishing vs. traditional publishing
  • The typical timeline of writing, publishing, and promoting a book
  • How having a book helps you as a speaker
  • How having a signature talk can become the backbone of your book
  • Why social media is *not* the way you’ll sell books – and what is
  • What you need to start doing now, even if you’re not planning on writing a book for months or even a year or more from now
