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
Teaches you the concept of the funnel – something to draw people in, but leads to something else readers will want to buy.
Also includes a Call to Action teaching you about subscriptions, new book sales, and marketing in the back of your book.
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.
You’ll learn how to make money off of more than one book, online marketing, and other income sources for writers.
Also includes a Companion Workbook so you can answer the questions in the book for yourself!
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!
It includes what you need to develop the mindset of a prosperous writer, as well as some practical tools (things you can do).
There are actually 5 books in this series (including 3 with my author buddy Brian Meeks) so be sure to check them out!
These books help you get your ducks in order!
Helping writers find their “rhythm” and establish a writing habit that actually fits into their life!
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 book seriously changed my life–the Life S.A.V.E.R.S. are a must for starting off your day on the right foot. This book has the added expertise of the prolific and wonderful Steve Scott (who also writes as SJ Scott).
This book leads you through the steps of creating new success and writing habits within 30 days that become a part of who you are– there is also a great support group on Facebook!
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.)
It will bring you out of your comfort zone by forcing you to come up with ideas. She suggests 10 a day!
Works your “idea muscle” and allows for more and more ideas for books. Once you master creating ideas, there’s no excuse!
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
Becca is a successful writer (fiction and nonfiction) and she really knows the potholes and pitfalls to avoid, so you can be more successful faster!
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.
