Book Excerpt

6 Steps to Becoming an Expert

1. Write a book
You've done this already, right?

2) Publish your book

A published book becomes a calling card to line-up speaking engagements, freelance writing gigs, and other opportunities.

3) Promote your expertise
If you write about something, and then take the time to properly promote yourself, people who search for your topic will invariably find you. That makes you an expert!

4) Overcome the ficton hurdle
Even though establishing yourself as an expert in a non-fiction arena is easier than with fiction, just look at what Clancy, Rowling, and King have accomplished.

5) Explore the possibilitites
Whether you've penned a techno-thriller, a children's fantasy, or a horror novel, there is a forum in which to voice your expertise. Find it, and then establish yourself aggressively.

6) Join, participate, schmooze
Seek our conferences, associations, and other experts to help you.
