Does your book have a future? Do you know how to write a book that lasts?

When it comes to writing a book, many people stumble on the first step – finding the topic that is tuned into their professional and personal life and yet is enduring.
How can you write a book that is in demand and will also echo down the years?
Is it possible to create something original and lasting?

I believe it is but you need to be aware of a few practical steps.
Here are my 3 wise must haves:

  1. A book that resonates and has a future and shows and shares your experiences and expertise that is relevant to today’s audience and beyond.
    This means you understand the difference between current and fashionable subjects and know how to include them or not, with discernment.
  2. The core message of your book must resonate, engage and create affinity with your reader but also has an eye on future trends. It needs to satisfy your reader and have lasting value.
  3. The content teaches, entertains, makes you think and shows understanding. Critical thinking and thought provoking opinions are encouraged to widen horizons.
    It needs to be a book you can boast about, encourage others to buy and stays on their book shelf ready to pull out and quote.
