4 of the Fastest Ways to Write a Book

Many authors assume the only way to write a book is by hand, but that can be an intensive process.

It might be the only way if you’re writing a book about fiction or a book that’s highly technical. If you’re writing a non-fiction book, such as a self-help book, there are many options open to you, such as:

Compilation
Content curation
Dictation
Interviewing

For the next four articles, I’ll explain each step in detail. Today we cover step 1 – compilation. There are two ways you can compile a book. One way is to look for articles by authors whose work matches your book idea and get in touch with either them or the publication and ask for rights to republish.

The other way is what Erin Giles did. She wrote a book called “End Sex Trafficking,” which is a collection of 60 essays written by authors from around the world. As an example, one of the authors Erin liked was Seth Godin. She wrote to him about her project and within a short period, he produced an essay for her.

When you write in this way, the expert status will be transferred to you and many people who read the book, when they see who contributed, will be wondering, how did she do that?

Hi folks, I hope everyone is well. I'm planning to run a crowdfunder to pay for the cover design and editing of my third book and am looking at all my options. Has anyone else done this? What were your experiences? I'm leaning towards Pubslush atm, so if anyone has used them I'd love to hear from you.

First Choice Books has worked with several authors who have had successful campaigns.  Use a video for sure. Look at other successful campaigns and emulate. Good luck!
Crowd funding - it seems to be ALL the rage right now. Has anyone run a crowdfunding campaign for your book? What did you learn? Would you do so again? OR would you back a crowdfunding campaign for a book?
