January News at SilverWood

Published: 1 Feb 2021  - updated: 4 Mar 2021


We launched our book writing club in December 2020 to encourage and support would-be authors. The club is hosted by SilverWood's Helen Hart and Debra Penrice, and renowned ghostwriter, Tom Henry. Designed to help you maintain momentum if you’ve started your next book, or write the one you’ve been thinking about, we have guest speakers every month, a private group on Facebook, and weekly live calls to answer your questions.

If you have an idea for a book or always wanted to write one, the writing club offers a membership group with training included. There is a monthly live Zoom tutorial where members will receive a masterclass from a guest expert, with a Q&A discussion to follow. There is also a private Facebook group for conversation and support, and a weekly motivation and discussion video call with Debra Penrice.

This month in SilverWood’s Writing Club, we’re focusing on getting your writing flowing. You can see more on Eventbrite here.

Or sign up via the SilverWood site for a discount on a three-month subscription here.

As Della says, a business book is a marketing tool to promote your core products and services; it’s especially effective for expertise-based businesses, like coaching, consulting, therapy and holistic services. Writing a book will establish your authority as an expert and help you raise awareness by building your reputation. Yet as with any business investment, it’s important to do your research and understand the costs involved before you start - so we’ve given some broad examples of potential self-publishing costs to get you started.

How to Market Your Business Book

As you’ll know, there are so many options using social media, online publicity or through events, workshops and webinars. We’ve summarised the most popular tools used by our authors in this article.
