If you could write a book about anything, what would it be about and what are you waiting for?
Good question, right?

I found topics on:
How to write a book
So you want to write a book
If you were to write a book
The list went on . . .
And, then I stumbled on Carlota Zimmerman’s words.
Recently, I’ve had a spate of people contact me, looking for help writing a book. Not editing or grammatical help, thank god, but help more along the lines of: “I wasn’t an English major…can I write a book?” Questions like this make my inner obnoxious teenager want to roll her eyes and say, “I don’t know, can you?” Listen, you’re the one who wants to write a book; why do you need my, or anyone’s, permission? Your human experience is valid. What you have to say is as valid as what anybody else has to say. Get to work. Also, as you probably know, the best writing comes from confidence: You’re the author, take charge!
It’s true, take charge — you don’t need permission. You won’t find a better time for your words to spread like wildfire to inspire and empower than now.
As a writing mentor and editor, it seems everybody wants to write a book.
But, are there more writers than readers? No doubt about it. There are a lot of writers these days and I have no way to count exactly how many people have taken up writing. But it seems like I continually meet people who are in the process of writing a book. The growth of the internet has made the writing industry more visible and accessible. People, who may have once only considered the idea of writing a book, now find that they have all the information they need for every step of the process.
But do they?
This is one view of an author on publishing.
Here’s the sad truth: most people who write a book will never get it published, half the writers who are published won’t see a second book in print, and most books published are never reprinted. What’s more, half the titles in any given bookshop won’t sell a single copy there, and most published writers won’t earn anything from their book apart from the advance.
Sadly, this is one comment of many I hear from authors and it doesn’t have to be! In fact, it is the reason I do what I do, mentor, edit and publish books, the right way.
With a sea of information online — almost 12 million opinions on how-to-publish — it’s easy to see how you can be in complete overwhelm on, where to start, many of these opinions are complicated, and many more of them outdated.
No wonder most people either try and fail at publishing or don’t try at all. It’s too hard to figure out. Correction: it was too hard.
That’s why I provide you with the easy and correct way to publish your book. Publishing is not as hard or time-consuming as you might think, and no one knows how to guide you to profitably get your work to market better than Yellow Rose Publishing — your readers are waiting!
