When you have such a great part, why not let people know about the fun time you had? Here are some tips to show them what they missed out on and what is expected of your next event so they make sure they attend!

Document everything that happens at your party. The more you have recorded, the more you can post online. The record increases your SEO and Google-ability when people post about your party.

It is also a good idea to hire a professional photographer . You undo not want the only photos of you event to be badly-lit selfies. We have had some amazing videos taken at our parties. It’s worth it get them on tape and then edit it into a quick promo for you and yo9ur book/company. If you don’t have a lot extra money you can do it on your smartphone and use a video editing software. However, if you can, hire a professional. Even if you’re on a budget. It’s worth it to get that great video to post on your website, YouTube, Vimeo, etc. to get out into the world.

On-the-Go this Holiday Season but Still Need to Finish Your Book? Check out these tips!

Inspiration strikes at the most random times – Don’t let it pass! You might not always have a piece of paper and pen handy, but your smart phone is either in your hand, back pocket or purse at all times. USE IT!

laptopI composed my second and third books in small chunks writing everywhere you could imagine. I used the notepad app on my iPhone. I even bought a fifty dollar Bluetooth keyboard so I can easily sit and write when I’m inspired. Once I’m done with my thoughts I email it to myself so when I get home, it’s waiting in my inbox. Then I copy and paste it into a Word document and clean it up.

Woman waiting at the airport

Anytime you gave a extra five minutes in your day, you need to write. Waiting in line to pick up the kids from school? Write on your smart phone or tablet. Walking on the treadmill? Jot some ideas down. I get some of my best ideas wiggle working out, probably because of all the blood pumping through my veins and those feel-good endorphins flooding my body.

Traveling soon? Airports are another great place to write. Just think about how many minutes you waste lining up to be groped by security, waiting for delayed flights,  or sitting on the plane while the staff fuels up, thinking, Damn where is that truck to push back the plane?

Never take a second of free time for granted! Create in the chaos and leave your legacy!

Start today!

Obstacles to Overcome as a Writer

Each writer comes across some self-doubt along the way. Experienced or amateur, below is a list of obstacles that writers must overcome in order to create. Any of these ring a bell?

  • Doubt
  • Procrastination
  • Stress
  • Perfectionism
  • Laziness
  • Anger
  • Jealousy 

The only way to overcome is to face each of these obstacles head on. There is no short cut to get it done, but I can provide little tricks that will make it easier.

  • Utilize Every Minute. You need to take advantage of every spare moment you have to finish your book. There is never a right time to compose a novel. You will never have those extra minutes just looming around. You have to create during chaos. You have to make the time and effort in order for it happen.
  • Don’t Edit While You Write. Write when you feel inspired and don’t stop until you feel like you have gotten it all out. Once you get your thoughts spinning in your head you need to stop what you’re doing and write them down, even if it’s chicken scratch notes. You can always go back and edit later.
  • Use Google for Spelling. Google is much more up to date than Word.

If you want to write  a book, you can. But the first step is getting the words out. Just the idea of it can be overwhelming and stressful—which is why many people who want to write a book don’t. If you are new to writing or need help getting started, the full version of my book will provide you with some insight on how to make this seemingly impossible task, possible!

Richter Publishing also has packages where we can write the book for you to make it even easier! Contact us for more info.

Richter Publishing Author Spotlight — Debbie Killebrew

Blank white book w/pathThis week’s Richter Publishing spotlight feature is on Debbie Killebrew and her title “Finding My Way Back.” —

What would you do if you suddenly found everything you knew was taken away from you? What if in the blink of an eye, you no longer were able to speak, walk, work, or dress yourself? What would you do if you could not even tell your children that you loved them? For Debbie Killebrew, these horrible questions came true in one night of drinking that changed her life forever. However, Debbie has fought to overcome the impossible, even when she was told that she would never walk again, never drive again, and never live a normal life again. Her inspiring true story will show you that no matter what twists and turns life takes, you can get up and keep going – and also serves as an unfortunately realistic testimony about how drinking and driving can truly take away everything you know.
