That book you wanna write...let's talk about it.

Published 8 months ago • 1 min read

Hey Reader!

I know what it's like to have a book sitting on your spirit, and feeling lost in all of it. I know EXACTLY how frustrating it is 😩. You might not know where to start, or you’re stuck, or you don’t know how this can even happen for you.

That’s a tough place to be, and I totally understand how you feel. That was me 9 years ago before I wrote my first book.

Here’s the truth - you have a valuable story to tell, and you have experience that will help someone else on their journey. You are holding the map that someone else needs to get to where they need to go.

Books are the map. Books are the things that last. They’re a historic marker that doesn’t go anywhere. And so many more of us, who aren't white and male, need to be publishing our stories, expertise, joy, struggles, lessons. We need that book you haven’t written yet.

I’ve written 4 books in the last 7 years, and all 4 have hit the bestselling lists, and most dope of all, they’ve changed my life by how they’ve changed the lives of others. And now, I am feeling convicted to help others enable their purpose through the writing of amazing books! So I’m working on something special: a book publishing course that is coming ⏰ VERY SOON ⏰. I’m gonna help you learn about what it takes to go from ideas to holding your book in your hand, in an industry that is purposefully shrouded in mystery. I gotchu!

There’s more to come, but until then, I’d love to know more about what has been keeping you from writing. Here are some of the things I usually hear from folks who want to write a book:

  • I can’t formulate a clear idea for what the book should be about. I just know I want to write one.
  • I have massive writer's block. Every time I sit down, the ideas won’t come.
  • I have the best intentions, but I can’t seem to find the time to write!
  • I don’t have the slightest clue how the publishing process works. Where do I even start?
  • I don’t know anything about marketing my book and I don’t want to be pushy about selling it.

Do any of these sound familiar? What is it for you? Hit reply and let me know - 🤔 What is the biggest challenge you are facing right now when it comes to getting your book out in the world?

I’ll be watching for your reply, and look for me in a couple of days with a really helpful exercise to get you set up to write the book you’re meant to write.

More to come soon!
