The Authorneer’s Journey, Part 2 (What to do before you start writing a book) [The Author’s Switch Podcast]
Ever wonder what you need to do before you start writing a book? Then listen up! That’s what I’m talking about in this episode of “The Author’s Switch”!
If you’ve ever felt tied to your family’s past and wanted to break free to live life on your own terms, you’ll want to listen to today’s episode featuring Gail Weiss Gaspar, author of “Carrying my Father’s Torch.”
The Authorneer’s Journey is one type of Author’s Journey. Authorneers are authors who mindfully build their author platform, work artfully to bring out their inner author, and engineer their authorpreneurship. Not every author wants or needs to be an authorneer. And that’s OK. However, by learning the steps it takes to be one, you can greatly improve the results of your book, even if you decide not to build an author-based business. I invite you to listen even if you think it doesn’t apply to you because you never know what golden nugget you’ll find!
The Guest on Episode 2 of The Author’s Switch is Cayman Kelly, a multimedia professional, host, actor, author, radio personality, and leading voice-over artist known for his smooth and contemporary prime-time sound. This month, he released his debut book From $6 an Hour to a Million Dollar Dream. Listen in as he tells his story and shares how he came to write a book.
In this first episode of The Author’s Switch, I explain what the podcast is all about. Then, I walk you through the five phases of the Author’s Journey. It is my hope that by hearing this framework, you’ll realize that you are not alone and that there are not only steps you can take to move forward as an author, but there are people who can help you and support you along the way. To help illustrate each phase, I share a story from my Author’s Journey.
