Karen Williams Quick Tip
Here’s my tip for nonfiction indie business authors. Start with the end in mind and get clear about what you want your book to do for you, your readers and your clients. For most business authors, success is more than just receiving royalties. If you want your book to attract speaking gigs, more clients or become an expensive but valuable business card to open doors, then ensure your book is focused on achieving this goal.
