Gathering of the Ghosts – January 22, 2024

From Thought Leader to Successful Author

May 1, 2020

It’s never been easier to to publish a book, but it’s also never been harder to penetrate the market and get noticed. That’s why Dan Gerstein, President of Gotham Ghostwriters and Peter Winick, CEO of Thought Leadership Leverage say that writing the book is only half of the journey to authorship, the other half is recognizing that writing a book is like setting up a “pop-up business.” As with any business you’ve got to be 1) sure about the timing and 2) have clarity on the mission.

In this webinar, Dan and Peter give an overview of:

– How thought leaders should think about the book decision

– How the evolving publishing business works today

– How to choose the right path for your book.

It won’t be the same journey for each thought leader, that’s why authors have to educate themselves on:

– How to get the book written: learn about the ghostwriting market and how it works

– How to get your book published: what is traditional models vs new models of publishing

– How to get your book noticed: as the author what are you expected to do, what will your publisher do, will you need outside help and if so, what kind?
