What inspires you to write?
As an international business consultant, I have a solution focused mind-sets in helping my clients grow profitable and successful businesses. The state of the current global economy places a lot of individuals in positions that they have never faced before with no solution or direction for the way forward. That is among the primarily motivation for me in writing my books as a resource tool, knowing that it is possible to creatively turn around the dire situation. That is, whether you have lost your job, are underemployed or seeking ways to better improve your current financial situation. Indeed my faith, education and professional experience has contributed immensely in believing in possibilities irrespective of the challenges an individual may be facing at any given time in life.
Tell us about your writing process.
I write non-fiction books (at least, so far). I normally follow this process
– I often come up with a subject area of interest. This interest is largely in response from my clients and seminar attendees who discuss current challenges as well as my own observation of the market and what could be helpful to potential readers.
– I then decide on the topics that can be helpful to readers
– I write these topics down and take them one after the other to write on until am happy I have covered as many subject as are necessary to help the reader.
What advice would you give other writers?
Write whatever you believe will benefit the reader and help the leader in the journey of life. Always be conscious of the reader and consider their perspective, as they will be the ultimate consumers.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I opted for Self-publishing after quite an extensive research. I thought is was cost effective when you are able to get a professional package that is quite reasonable. I also saw it as the quickest way to get the book out there, as well as the best option that offers me a greater deal of control on what I write and how I write it.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It is constantly evolving. A lot of publishing options and packages are increasingly being rolled out.
However, an author faces incredible competition if one wants to make writing a real profitable business.
My greatest challenge is the many “Book Marketing” organizations taking advantage of vulnerable authors by taking so much money for them and never doing what they promised to do.
