Are you willing to give up an hour of television every night so you can write your book?
Hitting PUBLISH should be the most exciting and empowering part of your entire journey down Publication Highway!
You must hone whatever talent God gave you into the mighty writing skills needed for this journey.
Boring, daily, effective action is what turns our book dreams into our published reality.

We all know what to do to sell our books.
We just don’t want to do it because it means stepping out of our comfort zone.
