Here's Your Chance to be Featured in the New Edition of My Rapid Skill Development Book!

I need your help with a project I’m working on. My book Rapid Skill Development 101 was published several years ago. The book hit several best-seller categories on Amazon, such as education and psychology, but it’s in need of updating.

Since the book came out I’ve had a few of the readers send me their stories after using it, but I would like to add more for a bigger and more helpful expanded edition. I’m also planning on adding examples of other careers that I’ve had coaching clients…

Need help today? Look back at these ancient thoughts

The truth is, there are no new ideas. Everything I'm writing, and that any author is writing, has been written. With that in mind we don't need to simply look to the new books being written. In fact, in many cases there is much more to be gained from reading things written long ago.

So I…

7 Techniques to Make Your Business Brilliant

We all look to currently successful people and try to deduce what it is that they have done to achieve the success they have. We're particularly fascinated by those who started with little and have become millionaires. That’s why…

Is your ego getting in the way of the life you want?

What is our ego? For many of you, the thought of ego may conjure visions of a character like Megamind with a huge head and huge brain. I want you to think of the character whose head is huge not because they have a huge brain, but because they can’t get over themselves. They think they’re a…

The Top 5 House Buying Mistakes to Avoid

Ten years ago I purchased my first house, not because I knew what I was doing or I was in a good enough financial shape to do so. I did so because that’s what everyone else was doing.

In doing what everyone else said I should be doing I made a ton of mistakes

It cost me thousands upon thousands of…

Too Much Is Not Enough: Why Marketing Your Book has to Be a Long-Term Gig

If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, chances are you like change. You like to shake things up. You don't like to do the same thing over and over and over again. You like variety! And you hate feeling stuck.

Those are all excellent traits, but they come with a downside. How do I know?…

Share Your Story to Help Others -- Q&A with Author Jen Forsthoff

I love all my authors. Truly.  I love that they are brave and generous enough to share their wisdom, experience, passion, knowledge, hopes, and imagination with the world. And each time a client becomes a brand-new author, I feel a little like a proud momma at graduation.

Jen Forsthoff makes me especially proud. Aside from being a joy to work…

The Power Is In "One"

Walter was a successful businessman. He had a beautiful family, a thriving company, and the respect of peers and community leaders. He was also, at one time, a championship-caliber skeet shooter. He practiced and practiced and practiced until his routine was polished and almost robotic--from his pre-competition rituals to his laser-like focus when he was in the heat of competition. The glasses adjusted just so. The shells at the ready in his vest. The grips on his shotgun precise. So that…

How to Choose a Title for Your Book

Books are judged by their covers. Authors know that. It’s why self-published authors spend weeks or even months—getting their covers just right. A traditionally published author doesn’t always have the freedom to choose and nitpick every detail of his or her cover, but the publishing house’s design and marketing teams likely spend even more time creating a cover that will sell.

Time is Not an Illusion - Bonus material from The Immense Center

This is a portion of The Immense Center that did not make it into the final book. Not because I felt it wasn’t good, but because I felt it interfered with the pacing. The characters are the narrator, Gabe, Mick,…

Looking for Beta Readers of my Science Fiction Novel

ARCs are almost ready!

An ARC is an Advanced Reader Copy. In days past, publishers would send out printed copies to a select group of readers to proofread and provide feedback on books before they were published. These days, though, this seems so archaic (and expensive). So, most…

Will you Celebrate with me?

All of the “fix it” writing is done. All of my proof-reading is done. All of my self-editing is done. It’s time to celebrate.


This means that the Sneak Peak will probably be going out this week.

This means I’m hiring an editor this week.

This means that I can set up the newsletter this week.

And, I’m going to rest, just a little.

Will you celebrate with me? Do you want to read the Sneak Peak? …

As an Author, How do you Make Characters Believable?

I’ve been listening to the You Are Not So Smart podcast and it’s got me thinking about ways that we all have cognitive bias and ways of thinking that get in our way. I’ve been wondering, what if I created characters that have obvious cognitive bias (obvious to the readers), that they themselves can’t see? What if, characters weren’t morally flawed, but just blind to the truth?

You can…

Flip Your Book

The popularity of self-publishing continues to encourage people to write and publish all kinds of books. Many of them contain information people need to apply to their lives. But it's not happening because there is a big difference between presenting and teaching.

I work with some of today's most accomplished authors by helping them deconstruct their content and reconstruct it so it is teachable. For more than a…

4 Ideas For Naming Characters

Over the years, I’ve heard a few authors complain, “Finding names for my characters is hard,” or, “My character names seem cheesy.” In a lot of my writing exercises, I feel like I struggle with character names too. But, lately, I’ve been experimenting with a few ideas that have turned out well.

This is the most effective idea in…

How to Give a Great Interview--Tips from Tim Knox

You want the world—or at least your niche—to know about your book, but how do you get the message out? Interviews, particularly radio shows and podcasts, can be an extremely effective medium for spreading the word.

I get that. I know that interviews are important, but they also make me a little nervous. As a…

Why You Shouldn't Give Up on Your Book

I love hearing great speakers present a well-crafted message. I especially love presentations when the speaker is an author whose books I've read. Even if we've never met, it feels as if we have a connection. I’m eager to hear my favorite authors speak because their message has already intrigued, entertained, or inspired me.

So when I learned…
