Books to Help Writers Start the Year Strong

I love a good book. There are so many great books out there, and as writers, it’s hard to choose which ones to pick first. That’s why I created this list of Books to Help Writers Start the Year Strong! I want to help you achieve your ultimate potential as a writer, and these books will certainly send you on your way!

Here they are:

Write. Publish. Repeat. By Sean Platt, Johnny B. Truant and David Wright

This book shows how book sales are governed by business principles that haven’t changed in 50 years … and aren’t going to change anytime soon. Teaching you to frame your writing as a business, not just as an art.

How to Make a Living with Your Writing by Joanna Penn

Joanna also provides great tips on self-publishing in print, ebook, and audiobook. I love that she includes an overview of how she makes a living from her writing, so you know you can too!

Prosperity for Writers by Yours truly

Write Faster, Write Smarter series by Chris Fox 

The strategies mentioned in these books are specific and well-outlined. Chris is a professional who shares his learning with others, which I think is super cool.

The Miracle Morning for Writers by Hal Elrod, Steve Scott & me

Hal, Steve and I account for all lifestyles and schedules in this book, so even if you’re a committed non-morning person, give it a try!(There are also 13 other titles in the series.)

Become an Idea Machine by Claudia Azula Altucher 

Creating ideas every day is amazing for your writing! It will open up the door to new book ideas, readers, and release you from the fear of failure because you know how to create new ideas all the time.

The Dear Writer series by Becca Syme

I know, I know, that’s a lot of books (you’re welcome). Truth be told, this is only a short list of books I recommend for the end of the year. If you’d like to see all of my favorite books, you can go here.

More Good Stuff…

Your prosperity begins and ends with what you think, say, and do–or in this case what you do, read, and listen to, so try these on for size:

~Prosperous Reading: How to Use Your Book to Market Your Book by Tim Grahl

~Prosperous App: I recommend Blinkist for consuming books in 10-15 minutes (it’s my new favorite app!).

~Prosperous Listening: The GSD Mode episode “How to Become a Successful Author” features yours truly!
