  • Tip#3  Be clear, keep focus, (on a single topic) and save additional ideas for another book.

  • Tip#5: Cover design and about a Hooky TITLE - pay attention to this tip!

  •  “Will a book make me rich?” Caryl says that’s the wrong question. Rather ask: “Will a book enrich my life – and that of others?” She cites Louise Hay, Louise Bates and herself who wrote their first books to help others – not to get rich.
