77: A Complete Guide to Taking Your Book From Vague Idea to Being Bought By Thousands with Tom Corson-Knowles

tom-corson-knowles-300Tom Corson-Knowles is a complete badass when it comes to helping authors and wannabe authors get their books out there.

And he’s not just some dude with bits of useful information. He’s got the credentials to back it up.

With several Amazon bestsellers of his own as well as coaching countless others to reach that feat, he’s been there in the trenches and knows exactly what it takes to earn a living from book sales.

So it was absolutely fascinating to have him on the show this week.

If you’ve ever thought about maybe writing a book or have written one that you want to get out there in a bigger way, then this episode is an absolute must listen.

In The Episode, We Talk About…

  • Tom’s story of how he transitioned into entrepreneurship out of college and published his first book.
  • The power of simply focussing on ‘the next step’, as opposed to getting too much into goals and visions.
  • Why setting goals for amounts of money is not the way to go.
  • The mindset behind getting your book written.
  • The process of writing, publishing and marketing your own book.
  • The truth about ‘writer’s block’ and how to never have it again.
  • How to switch between left and right brain during your writing process to get your book finished faster.
  • Strategies for going ‘Kindle only’ as well as self-publishing a physical book.
  • Why it’s important to have a ‘brand promise’ with your book and how to do this for fiction and non-fiction.
  • How to create a structure for creativity and an environment for writing.\
  • Some absolutely amazing tips and strategies for getting the most out of Amazon and launching your book (even if you have no audience or following).
