his book would still be in the planning stages if Kevin Bermingham, the ’90-Day Guy’, hadn’t invited me onto his 90-Day Programme.
Writing this book has been an amazing experience. Not least, because I was a member of his Successful Author Academy. Full of brilliant people; each of whom succeeded in writing their own book within the same 90 days. Thank goodness for our Facebook group, those encouraging posts really kept me on track when I needed it most. The mutual support and encouragement provided by Kevin and the group really helped me to succeed.
For me, the most important thing was when I worked out who my reader was in detail. I’d had a rough idea and a lot of passion that I wanted to get my message ‘out there’ but no more than that. The process of getting inside my perfect reader’s head was really useful and it made such a difference to my ability to focus as I wrote my book. If I later got lost and started to waffle, then I just went back to my perfect reader’s profile and refocused myself to write for that person. Very helpful. And now, it’s amazing that the ‘perfect reader’ that I wrote my book for is exactly the person who now buys it. And they even write brilliant reviews for me on Amazon, because my book ‘hit the spot’ for them.
