Publishing a Consumer Health Book and Free Giveaway

Writing a book seems scary, but it is actually an exciting endeavor. A couple of months ago, I published my first consumer health book and the reviews have been great. In fact, another review is due to appear in the next issue of the AMWA Journal.

If you have written or are writing a book, you have two options: self-publishing or traditional publishing. Both options have advantages and disadvantages. If you will be attending the upcoming AMWA conference, and would like to learn about how to create your own publishing company, consider registering for my breakfast roundtable on Thursday, October 23.

But maybe you want to go with a traditional publisher. Then, you'll have to learn several things such as getting and agent, writing a book proposal, formatting your manuscript, etc. Last year, I interviewed multi-published author Ada P. Kahn about how to write a book proposal for a health-related book.

I will give away the audio of that interview to every person who orders Becoming a Medical Writer or any of the courses at during this holiday weekend (until Sept 2).

Thanks for reading!
