How to Write and Self-Publish a Book in 2022

Updated: Dec 4, 2021

Tis the Season to Write a Book blog series continues as we countdown our way to Christmas. A great way to write a book is to simply write about something you already know. Something you have achieved and create a step-by-step or show others "how to" do that particular thing. Today is Day 2 of 24 where I teach you how to do something I know well, let's dive right in.

As a Self-published author with 6 years of experience, I have mastered a Blueprint that has allowed me to become 10 times a published author. Currently, I am working on a book series so I'm not only an author, but a writer, and I teach others how to self-publish their own books as well. So keep reading if you want my 6-Step Blueprint to write a book in 2022.

Step #1 Vision and Your Why

Why do you want to write a book? I know a lot of people think writing is the first step but let me tell you it takes more than putting words together to make your dream of becoming a published author a reality. First, get clear and have a strong "Why". A "Why" is defined as the driving force or conviction that propels you forward.

Step #2 Decide on Type of Book and Create an Outline

Okay now that you have your "Why" you need to decide. To be clear, decide on the type of book you want to write.

Will it be...

  • a prayer journal

  • a personal story

  • a step by step

These are a few types of books you can write in 30 days.

Decide who is the book for? It's important to have an audience in mind before even writing the book. Some might call this your "target market" but the point is you're writing for someone else to benefit from your book.

Decide on how you will outline your book. Look, before you dive into writing you must have an outline. Yes, I'm going to say it again for all the people in the back, an outline is a must!

I highly recommend you decide before starting to write the book. An outline will keep you focused and give you a specific plan of action. Without an outline, you have no direction.

Hint: I even have an outline for this blog series, I know exactly what topics I will write about see all 24 here.
