Many professionals are interested in writing books. We have written or edited over 125 books since 1983. We work with all the major publishers, including the top three in the world. We have 46 books with one publisher. Our books have won awards and we have built a business around them. We know how to write a book and we know how to write book proposals that attract the interest of publishers. More importantly, we know how to build a business around a book.

Most professionals have very much expertise and knowledge and they want to share it with the rest of the world. This is particularly true for those individuals who have a considerable amount of experience in the corporate world. According to the New York Times, 81% of professionals want to write a book. Unfortunately, the vast majority will never do it. The problem is that they have a mental block when it comes to writing the book. They don’t know how to do it and how to make it work in their busy schedule. Business Week has reported that 3,000 business books are published each year. The bad news is that most will fail miserably. This session will be a very lively discussion about why books fail and how this trend can be prevented. We will describe our Writer’s Conference, where we offer access to the experts and resources, and provide inspiration to learn how to write a book, how the publishing business functions, and how to develop a business around the book.
