Milking Your Book Ideas For All They
My latest book “How to Earn Money in Retirement
” (How To Books ISBN 1845281128) has just been published and hits the bookstores in early May 2006.
As I was writing the mss about nine months ago it occurred to me that there might be another book lurking right there in the text. Accordingly I took notes; mentally deleting a chapter here and adding a few more there, expanding on a topic, sketching out another, and so on.
As a result of this dual tasking I started writing a new book immediately after finishing the project in hand and decided to submit a proposal sooner rather than later.
Next up I received an email from one Nick Hutchins, the freelance reader reviewing the text for “How to Earn Money in Retirement
”. Nick’s message
simply read, ‘Do you realize you have another book here?’ To which I equally succinctly responded, ‘Yes, I know, and I’ve just submitted a proposal’.
