3 Biggest Mistakes Authors Make
THAT PUT THE BRAKES ON BOOK SALES
I’m an author, publisher, and New York Times Bestselling ghostwriter living in the mountains of Southern California. It’s peaceful and inspiring. I do a lot of thinking up here, and my community is filled with creative people so life is grand.
Writing has been my greatest joy since the age of 7. I wrote poetry back then. At the age of 11, I wrote what by today’s standards you might call my first flash fiction story, Teena and the Wildcat. I’ll bet that stuff is still in the attic of the home I grew up in.
Fast forward to high school. While everyone else was filling their electives schedules with fun classes, I took English classes. I soaked that department dry.
As it turned out, I ran out of choices before I ran out of high school. So in my senior year, I proposed an independent study course to my favorite English teacher and wrote a Gothic Romance. Never really finished writing it (sound familiar?), but I learned a lot.
That was the end of my fiction days. Today my focus is on self-development material.
At the time of this writing, I’ve published 10 anthologies; eight of them with the Golden Pen Writers Guild, established in 2000.
As a ghostwriter I’ve pecked out articles and non-fiction books of all sorts. I write articles, newsletters, develop courses, and publish blogs for clients.
What do I do in my spare time? I write, of course.
For the last 21 years, I’ve been teaching creative writing, book/blog publishing, and journaling workshops. I host an annual mountain writers’ retreat.
What’s New with Writer to Writer?
The time has come to go online with my courses making them more accessible and leaving a bit of travel time for me. You’ll find them, along with free eBooks and tools in my membership program.
I’m looking forward to getting to know you. Write that book! The world is waiting for your words.
Long after you leave this earth, echoes of you will remain to frame your passage. Your book is your legacy.
WHO SAID WHAT ABOUT
“I am fortunate to have had Judith Cassis as my book coach, mentor, advisor, and editor for the past year. It has been a privilege for me to know her and to study under her tutelage. For someone like myself who is passionate about becoming a published author, I can think of no better counselor. She helps me reach deep within to draw out my finest writing, never letting me accept second best. At the same time she keeps me well grounded in the reality of today’s publishing world as it changes constantly under the ceaseless impact of social media.”
