Why is it that some poorly written novels sell really well and well-written novels don’t sell at all? Great writing takes time but crafting a story your readers will finish, takes longer.
The goal of selling a novel is to keep the reader interested in reading and loving the book from beginning to end.
When you think about your book, what goes through your mind? Knowing what to write and sitting down to write it are two different things. But, having the right mindset will help you accomplish what your book is about.
I began writing my book, Divine Providence, in 2008. In reality, it was to be a single page story. I was going to print it on old-time style paper, burn the edges and frame it for my family.
Last week, I launched my annual reader survey. This survey is designed to help me create more relevant content for you. This blog is a relationship and the road goes both ways.
This is why I do this survey. I want to give you a voice in what I write and create. This year’s survey was not the success that I was hoping for. Maybe it was the timing and maybe people are tired of taking surveys.
Writers, write and Editors, edit. It’s the necessary cycle of every book, blog post, and article. But one thing is certain if you don’t edit your work, your readers will.
We get so excited to write our stories down that we forget one of the most important parts of writing is hiring an editor. This one person can take your manuscript and help you massage your message.

Writing a book doesn’t have to be rocket science, but so many make it difficult and thus give up on the project altogether. I have the perfect way for you to begin writing your book, and these simple steps will help you get there.
When I walk through a graveyard I see rows upon rows of untapped potential and unwritten books. Yet, because you’re reading this, you’re still alive and you can write your book this year.
All through college, I wanted to write a book and become a famous author. While I may not be famous, I have written two books; Divine Providence, Grace and several short ebooks. These books have opened doors and helped people succeed.
As a writer, it’s easy to say, sit down and write to someone who is aspiring to be a writer. But the truth is, if you want to be a writer, you have to sit down to write. Every writer wants to take their craft to the next level, and be more productive, and in today’s episode, I’ll show you how.

When people think about writing, they think of writing the next great American novel. Yet, the majority of writers will never write a book, but they will keep our newspapers, magazines, or periodicals filled with news, words of encouragement and information.
Everyone wants to write a book, but one thing we can and should do is to write for the sake of writing. There are many places we can get our work published. And in my opinion, it’s getting many small things published that make a successful writer.
Everyone encounters fear at one point in their life, or another. But when it comes to writing, fear can hold you back from making a difference in someone’s life.
Writing gives us a chance to face our problems head on. That proverbial blank page, idea or desire to write, but not wanting to step into the unknown can be debilitating. There’s nothing wrong with fear. It’s neither good or bad. One thing for sure, we can harness it and succeed.
