Today’s Topic: Using A Book to Define Your Purpose - Why “Wait and See” Doesn’t Work

What do I hear all day long every day? “I don’t know my purpose!” Or “I’ve always thought I should write a book.” And my first response about the book is - “Do it!!!” My first response about the life purpose is that you just haven’t found your passion.

I want to use this podcast to break down the break downs on what is being missed and why...

Today’s Topic: How Do I Sell My Self-Published Book?

This is the question every single author has and let me start by telling you that every approach is as different as every result.

We’re gonna jump right in today…If you tuned in to my last podcast, I talked about a client that printed 300 copies of her children’s book and still has many of them sitting in boxes unsold. Well…she is now producing a novel and decided to go to a different Designer, not me, to...

Today’s Topic: What’s All the Fuss About A Publishing Imprint?

Sometimes I sit down to write a podcast episode and I think, maybe I don’t have something to say, then all of a sudden something comes through me and I could go on and on. This episode was originally designed to be just a quickie, but well… this is why I have created a podcast - I have far more to say than I realize until I start talking! Once I got going on this topic it just seemed to open up more to...

122 - I Just Don’t Want to Spend the Money! (But… I Want A High-Quality Book!)

 

Maybe like you, I tend to have themes going through my business. I guess those themes are based on pop-culture, the Geo-political situation, or cultural norms most of the time. Like, remember that horrible phase of authors trying to out-do one another with the swear word book titles? Good God that was ugly! Yes, it got our attention, but was it good attention?

So, I guess it’s the state of the economy that draws us to today's topic - money! How do you know how much is appropriate when investing in your book project? It’s a question I’m being asked more often these days. Aspiring new authors call me up asking how they can cut corners to cut costs and my answer is generally pretty much the same - do the highest quality book you can afford - always! In this business you get what you pay for. You hire a horrible coach, you get useless coaching. You hire a bad editor, you get lousy editing. You hire a junior or inexperienced designer, you get lack of...

Today’s Topic: Planning the Launch of Your Book

I’m going to hit on many topics in the episode so the title of this podcast is broad. I’m not really giving you the specific details on the launch, but more some of the obstacles and thoughts around the launch… you’ll see as we get into it today.

When a new author thinks about writing a book they don’t often think about all the details it entails… mostly just because they really don’t know. On...

091 - Don't Use A Literary Agent!

 

Hey Guys! Nicole Gabriel here!

I hope you’re doing well and staying balanced in these strange times we are living in. We’ve all had to make many adjustments in how we live and do business with all the changes happening in the workplace and at home. Personally, I find this to be a time of great transformation. Every fiber of our world that isn’t standing on truth seems to be crumbling all around us. Of course, if you’ve listened to any of my podcasts on truth its something that runs deep in my veins to discuss and disclose. It seems I can’t stop myself from discerning intention, integrity, and ripping the mask off of deception, censorship, and trickery.

The fluctuations in the publishing industry have certainly been interesting to watch as it’s been my opinion that so much of what occurs here has deceived us for many years. Often I can’t stop myself when I’ve found those places where the system takes advantage of unassuming...

090 - Top 5 Tips Get Started Writing Your Book Today!

 

I’m Nicole Gabriel, the host of the show. And, I’m happy you joined me here today! I’ve worked in the publishing industry for awhile now and I’ve seen many things over the years. I began my career in the advertising business back in the early 90’s. I’ve worked for all the top ad agencies. I began my career at McCann Erickson, then worked my way into J. Walter Thompson, Young & Rubicam, and then went over to the client side and did my time in executive management in all the American auto companies - General Motors, Ford, and (at the time) Daimler Chrysler. I was in the business back in the days of George magazine. I was there at the birth of the internet. I was on a few teams that built the very first websites for many in the automotive business. Some days it feels like it was another lifetime ago, but the basics of the advertising and marketing business are the same no matter the media used. I surrounded myself with brand management...

089 - 5 Publishing Truth Bombs!

 

Wow Guys! What a week it was last week!

So much happening in the world right now! It’s an amazing (and challenging) time to be here!

I’m Nicole Gabriel, the host of the show. And, I’m happy you joined me here today!

I’m on a roll with the truth bombs, now it’s time I let you know that most people really don’t care to hear them! The publishing industry is a funny world. People have this idea of fortune and fame the other side of a written book. But, the success, like in many fields, is in the hustle.

There’s a wonderful quote by Mark Twain that says:

“It’s easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.

 

There is another quote that says:

“If you repeat a lie often enough it becomes truth.”

 

There is another that say:

“Silence is the best reply to a fool.”

 

But…when you run a podcast and write books this last one stands no chance! In fact, as a self-published...
