Hi and thanks for your article. Some years ago I wanted to write a book but was put off by what seemed like a minefied of obstacles. I didn’t know where to start and looking at the fees scared me too. I think I would have felt so much better if I had your site to hand to guide me. You have a really useful site that I think will be an inspiration to many visitors. Thanks Kenny.
Thank you, Kenny. You should look again into writing your own book. Once you publish it, send me a link. I am sure I will be a fan. I appreciate you visiting my website. Have an awesome day!
If you say it like that then it sounds indeed very simple to write a book! I like your site it has some learning tools on how to write a book. It has reviews of books and not to forget now these days the most important part a laptop reviews. I will forward it to a friend of my who is in the progress of writing and getting published a book.
Thank you so much, Tommy! There are so many people out there who think that they could never write a book, and it just isn’t so. You don’t have to be Stephen King to write a book… Just a person who loves to write. Thank you so much for your visit… Have a blessed day!
Thanks for the information on how to write a book. I’ve written several (novellas actually) and yes, distraction is a biggie!
There was some great information on publishing, I published all of mine through Kindle, and, as you say, Createspace can get you physical, print-on-demand copies of your book chop chop, and with minimal hassles.
Could I suggest another article on marketing your book? I didn’t see you cover that, but I’m sure it’s something your readers would appreciate your advice on.
Thanks again, I thoroughly enjoyed the read.
Les, I truly believe that knowledge is power, and I am a man who wants to learn. Any suggestions are most welcome! I can’t tell you how surprised I was to find that my autobiography sold so many copies in Scotland, of all places. It’s nice that a lack of funds is no longer an issue for publishing a book. Now everyone can follow their dream. Thank you so much for your visit, Les. Have a blessed day!
Nice layout, easy to read and informative.
My husband and I started a Novel but life got in the way, maybe we will rethink it.
Thanks for the info,
Susan & Paul
Hey Clay, awesome post. You know, your post made me seriously think about writing another book; an autobiography of my life. My wife tells me that I should and I have been seriously considering it; your post might just give me the push I need.
I do have one question, what would you recommend about pen names, should I base it on something I like or something that’s related to the book? How many books have you written?
Overall, I like your post and I’m going to refer back to it for later when I’m ready to finally write that book.
Hello RJ… I think you should write your autobiography! I think you should have a cool pen name, something that you like. My pen name, Lucas Fisher, came to be because of the old TV show, Rifleman. I always liked the Lucas, then I googled last names until one came up with no hits.
I have written nine books so far, and I am currently working on a thriller called ‘A Buck and a Quarter.” I appreciate you visiting my website, and I wish you the best in all your writing endeavors.
This is a brilliant website!
I got so much out of your content, which is superbly organised. I was compelled to click through on all four of your subjects on the home page and found a wealth of relevant content in an easy to understand order. In fact, you have covered your subject so well that it is a veritable step-by-step solution – you must be a writer! LOL…
One criticism I have is that I don’t like the first image of the thoughtful lady, it does not fit with your personal approach and is not as effective as your other images, which are really engaging. I would replace this with a picture of you – I found myself wondering what you look like as I read, but then again I am intrigued by successful people… smiles!
All the best with your future efforts, this is an inspiring effort!
Hi Danny… well, she is prettier than me, but I will look into it, LOL. Thank you for your encouraging words! Have a great day, and I look forward to seeing you again!
This article is so inspiring! I’ve been thinking about writing a book for a couple of years now but never had the courage to give it a go. Writing a book is something I would be really interested in since I love writing and I’m a very creative person. I’m so happy that I’ve found a website about how to write a book. I just bookmarked your site and will definitely give it a thought. Great article!
Thank you so much, Ruya! If I can ever help you in any way, just give me a holler! Thanks for your visit, and have a great evening.
I so have enjoyed your site and all the articles in how to write a book, and with all the steps you have mentioned I couldn’t agree more.
I too have written my first book 4 years ago (under a pen name) and was working on it, back then, already for 3 years before it got ever published.
My biggest challenge to get to the finish line was procrastination and yes, distraction as well.
In the end, though I finished it and did published it myself.
Editing, in my case English is a second language, was the biggest hurtle but I will take your advice for my next book, a work in progress, and follow the steps you have given.
Thank you 🙂
Sylvia, I can’t imagen how much more difficult it must be to edit a book in a second language! I commend you on your accomplishments, and wish you the best on your next book. Thank you for your visit.
Thank you so much for writing this article, I think there is a lot of valuable information that will help many people who want to write a book. I love the simplicity of the steps that you need to take in order to get started and how to approach the project. Your success and encouragement has given me new inspiration to write a book I have been think about. It will be called “My last day of school at F.G.C. Port Harcourt”. I will definitely check out your site again once I get started to get more information on steps I need to follow and obstacles that will be coming my way. Thanks again for providing your insight and helping other though your personal experience. I know that there are lots of people who have the desire to write, but don’t know where to begin so this will provide much needed direction.
Hi Jefrey. I am glad to hear that your creative wheels are turning again. I’m am always here if you need me, and I appreciate your stopping by. Take care…
