A book you can write

I recently edited a book for a businessman whose idea may encourage you to write, too.

There are many benefits to his approach. Try it. Most folks can write — subject, verb, object — if they take the time. Then contact me for help fine-tuning the book. You soon will be adding another bright facet to your life.

He took about 15 anecdotes from his life — as a Marine, a father and husband, a business owner and consultant, brother, hiker and traveler — and ended each with an appropriate moral.

It’s the proverbial quick read, about 80 pages, and can be published as an e-book or in print by using simple self-publishing technology.

It will work well as an income stream and as a memoir for his family and friends, but it also has great potential for him to draw new clients to his consulting business.

It’s size and topics will appeal to businesspeople who constantly search for books and articles that help them keep their can-do spirit even when times get tough.

It’s a great gift to give to clients and to potential clients who want to know more about him.

And it’s not all that hard to do.

The big thing about writing is getting the words out of your head and onto the page. This takes time and discipline.

But professionals like me can take care of the details and help you become a published author. Let me worry about the grammar, point out holes in the narrative and polish the writing. It’s what I do.
