Friends… I’ll be honest with you. I’m a mathematician through and through. I’ve run high school math departments and even taught college math. Yup, I’m a mathelete! I never saw myself as an author. I remember freshman year at the University of Michigan when Ms. Allen said I had to write a 5-page paper… Eyes opened wide, somehow resembling a dear in head lights. Good Lordt! I was shook.
Fast forward, writing isn’t bad. And thanks Ms. Allen for that machine gun red pen of yours that went ham all over my freshman papers. I promise i tried my best to reach the bottom of that 5th pageJ
Some of you know that I was asked to write a book by a book publishing company in 2011. Ironically, I was in my math classroom cleaning up after school when I received the call. The publishing consultant asked if I was interested in writing a book. Again, I never fathomed being an author, but she just put a price tag on an extended book report! Yup, consider me an author!
The question going through your mind right now is: Does it take 5 years to write a book?
I started the process, learned a lot, and 5 years later I published a 330-page best-selling book. Lets just say I Love the process now!
Going through a traditional publishing route it can take anywhere between 18 to more than 24 months to launch your masterpiece.
Back to the questions: How long does it really take to write a substance-filled book?
The idea was sparked and the book came out 5 years later, but the process only took 10 months. The book was in draft form after 5 months and immediately placed on pre-order. The next 5 months was filled with intense editing and promotion. The first day the book was released I sold over 1,000 copies. I’ll let you do the math 1,000 books X $20 each… It was a good day.
I’ll be honest with you. The impact that has come from creating a substance-filled book is rewarding beyond description. I’ll also tell you that since then I have a process that allows me to take books from idea to launch in 6 months. So to answer the title of the post, “Is it possible to write a substance filled book in 6 months?”, Yes! Initially the task of book writing seemed like a mountain that could never be climbed, but now it’s a hurdle that I’ll jump over whenever I choose. Lets be clear. I’m not saying it’s a walk in the park, it’s simply a process that you can complete with clear direction.
If you’re ready to get that idea out of your head and onto the pages I strongly suggest you get the proper coaching that will enable you to expedite your writing process. You’ll also need a team that will fulfill the necessary roles to enable your book to be born! Click here to learn more about Author Speaker Secrets. We have what you need.
