Why do you want to be a Published author?
That is a good question, and I have 3 answers.
1 – Why do I Write?
I write because I love to write. I was once told my writing is only a hobby, not a business.
The hobby part may have some merit, but it has never been a hobby. A hobby is defined as: Hobbies are usually, but not always, practiced primarily for interest and enjoyment, rather than financial reward. Hobbies sometimes become careers, but they can change, be dropped, etc.
But while there is similarities, the truth is that for me writing is a calling. God called me to write and it requires more dedication than a hobby.
2 – Why do I do my own marketing?
While I love writing and have some talent in that area, marketing didn’t come naturally to me. But I have dedicated myself to marketing because my writing is a calling, and the marketing aspect comes with that calling.
Unfortunately, for a long time I didn’t have a coach or mentor. I self-taught myself a lot, but I couldn’t quite put it all together. Since 2022, that has changed and I am now experiencing my best years ever.
3 – Why do you use Social Media?
This is more complicated. I know there are some bad people on Facebook, but I believe there are some good people on Facebook, as well. These people can benefit from my products. For example,
A – Christian fiction books are based on actual people and events in the Bible. While I write the fictional story behind the story, they also relate the Biblical accounts. All of which means my readers can be entertained and taught at the same time.
B – Christian nonfiction books take sometimes complex issues or doctrines and reduce them or simplify them for easier understanding. I often say they are written by a simple man for simple men.
C – Writing course known as Basic Authors Training, which brings me much joy because it gives me the opportunity to help others become published authors.
D – Ministry Publishing enables me to be part of other people’s ministry or success, and enable them to have their books published.
