Ever Dreamed of Being a Published Author?
Hi guys! Cooper here… hope your week was filled with playing outside and chasing squirrels, rabbits and groundhogs (it was a busy week) just like mine was! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to publish a book? Have you ever had a story that you wanted to tell to the world, but did not know how to do so? Thousands of people just like yourself across the nation want to write a book but do not know how to either get started or have the time to write an entire book.
On a recent episode of The LinkedIn Lady Show, Carol stated, “Being a published author gives you an added level of authenticity, leadership, and authority.” So, lets talk publication and how to get published. In the world of publishing, there are 3 distinct options. The first option is called “traditional publishing.” Traditional publishing is the process of writing a manuscript and finding an agent. The agent will then find a publisher to publish your book. Historically, traditional publishing was the only way to get published. The second option is “Self publishing.” Self publication is the process of the author doing everything for themselves – from writing the book, editing it, publishing it, and printing it. The third option is Hybrid publishing. Hybrid publishing is in the middle of traditional and self-publishing, and is considered the “new normal”.
Believe it or not, CKC Global Publishing is considered a hybrid publisher! With hybrid publishing, the author retains the right to their work, and the company, such as CKC Global Publishing, brings in additional resources and professional guidance. We wants to help all of the aspiring authors to become published (sooner than later). CKC Global Publishing is in the process of developing a book series titled “ Sounds Crazy But Its True.” The first book in the series is going to be a collection of 21 authors sharing lessons regarding “crazy but true” business experiences. Anyone can become a published author through CKC Global Publishing. All you have to do is apply and then contribute a 2,000 word story of something that has happened to you during your business career. If you were sharing it with a friend, you might begin with the phrase "You can't make this stuff up!" But whether your story is funny, poignant, inspirational, or practical - other readers can benefit from what you learned and are willing to share.
