How to Self-Publish a Book

The days of a few New York publishers controlling the fate of authors are gone because of the rise of self-publishing. Now writers can publish their own books and control their own destiny. Anyone with a computer, Internet access, and something to say can publish a book. This doesn’t mean that the process is easy or foolproof, but at least it’s possible and available to many more writers. I’ve written twelve books. Traditional publishers brought ten to market, and I self-published the most recent two.

I learned a lot about self-publishing in this journey—so much so that I co-authored a book called APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur—How to Publish a Book. I’d like to help writers everywhere break the shackles of traditional publishing. As a start, here are my  recommendations for self-publishing a book.

1. Write for the right reasons

There are four good reasons to write a book: (a) you have accumulated knowledge that merits sharing; (b) you want to further an idea that benefits mankind; (c) you want to entertain, amuse, or inspire people; and (d) you want conquer the intellectual challenge for writing a book. There is one all too common bad reason to write a book: because you believe it’s a means to an end where the end is positioning you as a thought leader, making a lot of money on royalty, or fostering your consulting and speaking career.

2. Use the right tools

I’ve written twelve books, and I’m a freak about efficiency, ease, and efficacy. With that said, these are the tools that I use. Microsoft Word (writing), Adobe InDesign (layout), Evernote (collecting anything), Dropbox (backing up). The only controversial recommendation is Word. I realize that it’s a bazooka, and you may only need a fly swatter, but every editor, printer, ebookstore, and designer uses it. Also Word styles are indispensable for non-fiction writing. Word is a beast, and you have to wrestle it to the ground, but once you do, it’s the best tool to write a book in my humble opinion.

3. Build a social-media marketing platform

The single biggest mistake authors make is waiting until their book is done to start working on social media. They think that a few weeks before the book is ready, they can hire an intern to “do social media” to build buzz And the richer and more powerful the author, the more she or he believes this. It takes a year to build a social-media marketing platform. You should start this process the same day that you start writing.

Made my first pineapple upside down cake and it only lasted 15 min before they ate the last piece. I guess I'll be making it again soon 😔

DRINK WATER ON EMPTY STOMACH

It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven its value. We publish below a description of use of water for our readers. For old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the followingdiseases:

Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases.

METHOD OF TREATMENT
1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water

2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minute

3.. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.

4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours

5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day.

6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can enjoy a healthy life.

The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure/control/reduce main diseases:
1. High Blood Pressure (30 days)
2. Gastric (10 days)
3. Diabetes (30 days)
4. Constipation (10 days)
5. Cancer (180 days)
6. TB (90 days)
7. Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards – daily..

This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate a few times.
It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life. Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.

This makes sense .. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain...

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.
It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion.

Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine.
Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks:

• Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting,
• Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.
• You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.
• Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.
• 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.
• Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive...
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it to everyone they know, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life.
Please be a true friend and send this article to all your friends you care about.

PLEASE DON'T IGNORE SHARE IT. THIS MIGHT SAVE SOMEONE'S LIFE.

More evidence to support that too much protein is TOXIC! Here's to eating our veggies!
A high-protein diet during middle age makes you nearly twice as likely to die and four times more likely to die of cancer, but moderate protein intake is good for you after 65. But how much protein we should eat has long been a controversial topic -- muddled by the popularity of protein-heavy diets such as Paleo and Atkins. Before this study, researchers had never shown a definitive correlation between high protein consumption and mortality risk.
