Writing is a very intimate process. Publishing your work is an arduous task. And I am sure you will agree here.
The Writer’s Code by Heena Shrivastava breaks down the process of writing and publishing for the budding authors out there. It succinctly shares inputs on the knick-knacks of authoring a book and taking the word out in the market.
Heena is an international book coach who has written 4 books as of date. Having said that, this book contains nuggets of wisdom from her experiences as well as deep research that makes it easier for the readers to understand everything.
The Writer’s Code is divided into 5 sections – Mindset, Writing, Editing, Publishing, and Marketing. Each section is further split into chapters to clearly discuss the necessary points such as how essential it is to be in the right frame of mind, how one must figure out a strong why behind their writing, and how they can navigate the complex zone of book publishing.
With the help of simple writing and illustrations, the book effectively communicates the need to outline your book before you take the plunge into the process. It further delves upon the fact how discipline beats momentary motivation in letting an author bloom. Moreover, I was excited to read about the different stages of editing a book and ways of publishing the book. KDP indeed sounds very cool to me now!
If you are a budding author who wants to know about fixing the right mindset, developing an approach towards writing your book, publishing and then marketing it effectively, do pick up this book. It has everything you need to know.
