In this week’s episode, I am speaking with AJ Harper, author of Write a Must-Read: Craft a Book That Changes Lives--Including Your Own. If you have thought of writing a non-fiction book this is the book for you. I have already recommended this book to several people as it will make the task far less daunting and more importantly help you write a book that delivers.

I am pitched a lot of books for this podcast. I have turned down some prominent authors because I thought the books did not deliver on what they promised. I think they should have read this book as you will hear, AJ gives you a pretty easy system to follow to keep on track to write a book that delivers. That does not mean it is easy to do but it is an excellent system.
I am currently reading a similar book Find Your Red Thread: Make Your Big Ideas Irresistible by Tamsen Webster that I mention during the episode. It discusses a similar process to refine your ideas that I have found useful.
