Can you really write a book in a weekend? It’s true that 4 out of 5 people want to write a book. A published book establishes credibility, expertise, and “author” ity. Each of us has an individual expertise which is a component of who we are. We all have a book inside us. Imagine handing the finished book to your loved ones and the feeling that gives. My guest this week debunks the myths of writing a book and shares how to get it out of our head and on to paper.
Donna Kozik is known as the book writing and publishing expert and for the past several months has led a number of people in writing a book in a weekend. In fact, she has set a personal goal of helping 1,000 people become published authors in the next year.
But before all that she grew up on a 200 acre dairy farm in rural northwestern Pennsylvania and moved to San Diego in 2001, a move that inspired her first book, 29 Days to a Smooth Move.
She’s a two-time award winning author and that book led her to be featured in Woman’s Day and Women’s World magazines, the LA Times and Baltimore Sun. She’s also appeared on the NBC Nightly News and has been heard on NPR’s Marketplace. Plus she was hired by Sprint PCS to be a paid national media spokesperson-all thanks to her book.
I’m talking about Donna Kozik, founder of MyBigBusinessCard.com and the Creator and Leader of the Write a Book in a Weekend virtual online events.
