In this episode, Jordan and Alinka discuss:
An unhappy journey leads to an unhappy ending
Finding a bookshelf for your book
Two reasons why you should write a book
Choosing a cover for your book
An unhappy journey doesn’t lead to a happy ending. If you find yourself feeling like pieces of yourself are dying out, then maybe it’s time to look outside the box that you’re in and find alternatives to your current circumstance.
The first step to publishing a best-seller is to go to a bookstore and find a bookshelf where your idea for a book would belong. Then, ask yourself how your book will stand out among others. If a bookshelf doesn’t exist for your book, that means there’s not enough readership.
There are two good reasons for you to want to publish your own book. First, is to leave a legacy and second is to grow your business. Books are useful for lead generation, authority, visibility, credibility, and also lead conversion.
When making a cover, pick out three designs from best sellers from the same category as your book idea. Ask your designinger to make a design that emulates those while at the same time stands out from them.
“Does the world need another book? Well, the answer is, it depends. But most probably, they do need your book and you specifically need your book out. ” — Alinka Rutkowska
