So what is the biggest obstacle standing in your way?

For many writers, what holds us back is what’s inside our heads…our thoughts. These thoughts can defeat us before we even get started.

Thoughts like:

    Who am I to be writing, publishing, and marketing a book? Am I qualified?
    How is my writing any different than what’s already been written?
    What will other people think of me? Will they think I’m prideful and greedy if I publish a book and share about it?
    Is my writing good enough? Do I have what it takes? Do I have the skills I need to be a writer?
    I’ve waited too long (or I’m too old). I think I’ve missed my chance.
    I don’t have the time or money to invest in writing, publishing, or marketing a book.
    What if my book isn’t perfect?
    If my book doesn’t sell well, something must be wrong with me.

And these thoughts go on and on…

…that’s why it’s so important to integrate our faith in everything we do as writers.

Learn How to Record, Master, and Publish an Audiobook

It took a lot of time and experimenting to figure out how to create and publish an audiobook. Quality of the original recordings is essential, so I spent time testing how I could get the best quality recordings with the tools and space I had to work with.

Audiobook Production Do It Yourself Step-by-Step started out as a checklist of the steps and settings I was using to turn my book into an audiobook. I wanted to be able to repeat the process without figuring it out all over again, and it turned out to be very helpful when I created my second audiobook.

Get a behind the scene look at how to create an audiobook with the exact settings I used to create my audiobooks, including screenshots.

Attention Authors!

Do you want to reach more readers, impact more lives, and sell more books? If so, check out the Book Marketing Shop.

Many people believe if you write great books and publish them, the sales will follow. This may be true if you’re well known and already have a large audience, but most books get lost among the enormous volume being published every day. People won’t buy your book if they can’t find it or don’t know about it. That’s where the Book Marketing Shop comes in. It’s filled with workshops, toolkits, and templates to help readers find your books.

Maybe you’re doing well marketing your books but know you could be doing more, or maybe you’ve written a book but it’s not making the sales you hoped it would. Don’t be discouraged and overwhelmed any longer. Get the tools you need to market your books and increase your sales.
