Factoidz: How To Write A Self Help Book


Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Love & Friendship is the perfect example of a self-help book. It has beautiful tips aimed at one audience: teenagers.

A self-help book is one of the most difficult genres in literature. When it comes to writing books like these, you have held yourself responsible to the fact that readers would not only be interested in reading the book, but might also be thinking about following it in their everyday life. Writing a self-help book is going to require risks, research, and determination. It’s going to require spending a long time working on this project. The following steps are a good way to write a well-balanced self-help book.


P.S. Don't think you can write a self-help book real quick. Better yet, don't think you can write a book in general real quick as well. Coming from the voice of a person who was born to be a writer, it's not easy. I can't tell how many ideas I started and then threw in the trash can. Writing a good book takes time and talent. But once you're done, sharing it with the world could be as easy as visiting an ebook publisher like www.lulu.com to publish your work in some of the major online bookstores."
