How to Write a Book Easily: Write a Tips Book


Ronda Del BoccioMaybe you’ve fantasized about writing a book and getting on TV or speaking at a seminar. Maybe you’ve seen people’s eyes light up when they meet an author and thought, “I wish that would happen to me.” Well, it can, and it’s easier than you think. There is one method for how to write a book that is easier than any other, and my friend Ronda Del Boccio can show you how to write this RIGHT NOW!

The following is a recently-published article by this well-known author-trainer:

You probably already know that authors get all the attention. It’s because people innately trust authors. So if you are an expert in your niche, or if you are a business owner (which still makes you an expert) without a book, it’s time to write one. In fact, becoming an author is essential, and it should be moved off the “someday I’ll” list and onto the “Do it now” list.

Anything is easier when you have a system for writing a book, so that is what I am about to share with you. I’m giving you the “easy button” steps to write a book. And remember, you don’t have to write 300 or even 200 pages to be the author of a “real book.”

You are an expert in something (probably several “somethings”), and no doubt you know some of the insider strategies or shortcuts that people crave. Everyone wants the easy way, right? If you have ways to save someone time, make something simple, or improve results, you have the makings of a tips book.

The easy path is to write a “tips book.” This is simply a whole list of tips with a few paragraphs about each one. I’ll show you how, step by step, right now.

I’m going to give you a step by step guide for writing a book – your own tips book. But first, let me answer the single most common question people have.

“How many tips do I need in order to write a book?”

The answer is, “It’s up to you.” There is no Law written somewhere on stone tablets saying “this many pages maketh a book.” One of my books is 152 pages. Another is 32. They’re both books and they both make me officially “an author.”

There is no gold standard. Go to your favorite online bookseller and put “tips” into the search box and you will see that tips books come in all shapes and sizes. One author converted her weekly blog posts into a book with – you guessed it – 52 tips.

See an example in the video at http://screenr.com/6xR

Example: A web designer could write a book with 77 little known ways to improve your website traffic in 5 minutes or less.A great free gift to go along with the tips and explanations would be a series of “before and after” screenshots for the reader to download.

Because . . . you have all the information you need already! There is no research. – It doesn’t take much time. You can write a tips book in a weekend if you wish. – When your book is done (which will happen in a very short amount of time), you will prove to yourself that you can write a book.

How to write your tips book, step by step:

1. Write the tips.

You decide whether to go low-tech or high-tech. Maybe you prefer a yellow pencil and thick pad of paper. Maybe you’re inclined toward index cards. Or maybe you want the “new-fangled” computer. You get to choose.

2. Write the tips book.

If you take a piece of paper and fold it in half the short way, imagine that each page has a tip at the top and a few paragraphs. That’s all you have to write. So you write the tip, leave some space, then craft the explanation. Tips are meant to be short, so don’t get carried away.

Insider writing secrets – Write to one person not to “you guys.” Only one person is reading the book. – Make sure you give your reader a reason to visit your website, such as a free downloadable gift. – The end of the book is the beginning of a relationship, so make an irresistible offer to your reader at the end of the book.
