Description

We've all made a mess.And that means we all have a message.This is the book that shows you how to take the former and make it into the latter.FROM THE NY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR

When Anna David got sober and sold a book about her recovery to the biggest publisher in the world, she thought she'd made it. She was wrong.

Still, after years of struggle and self-discovery, she ended up thriving personally and professionally. Now she's sharing what she's learned-and showing others how to do the same.

In this page-turning and useful memoir-meets-manual, David reveals her personal lows (doing cocaine by herself while contemplating suicide), her career lows (a past-his-prime celebrity hurling a phone at her as she wrote his biography) and how her life today wouldn't be possible without those experiences.

The last quarter of the book is a practical guide so that readers can make their own mess into a message-and memoir.

In this completely comprehensive "biz-oir" packed with proven and authentic tools and techniques, memoirists-in-the-making will travel with David on her journey from struggling addict to New York Times bestselling writer/entrepreneur and also learn:

-How to determine a memoir message and "why"

-How to select scenes

-The advantages and disadvantages of traditional and self-publishing

-How to come up with a title, rewrite a book and hire editors

-Potential legal concerns and how to avoid them

-How to gather blurbs, write acknowledgments and arrange for a foreword

-How to be set up for success on Amazon

-The importance of an Advanced Reader Team

And much more.
