Are You an Author?
Do You Have a Platform?
Do You Know What a Platform Is?
Every Author, every Book, needs a Platform. It's the stage, the very foundation of your book and authoring businesses. Platforms don't happen by themselves ... they take a Village to create and you are the Mayor. And yes, authoring and publishing are businesses.

Platforms start with a statement of fact: why you wrote the book; why you are the author for it; why you are committed to its theme/topic; and what value you bring to the reader. You do it with Confidence, Clarity, Competence and Commitment. Platforms don't happen overnight. They take time, and there are steps some small, some large and some in-between that will transition you from just an idea to a book that stars you as the expert or an amazing story-teller.

Author YOU: Creating and Building Your Author and Book Platforms is an extraordinary and interactive guidebook. Judith Briles, The Book Shepherd and author and publishing expert, will share insider strategies on how she created multiple bestsellers and award-winning books for herself and hundreds of clients.
