“What’s Your Story?”

WHAT’S YOUR STORY? Take your non-fiction book from possibility to plan to publication… and beyond takes everything I’ve learned through writing books myself and helping my clients to write and self-publish books, and delivers it to you in a conversational, friendly way.

The book takes you through the six key stages of writing, publishing and promoting a non-fiction book, and looks at some of the opportunities that can come about as the result of being an author.
