HOW TO WRITE A BOOK...

Updated: Oct 1, 2019

I have to say, the support I have been receiving through this book publishing process has been so amazing and overwhelming. But with all the good must come some critics, right? "Adelei, we all have a damn story, why is yours so special?". Yep. I get that, on the daily sometimes.


Well, I have a story that I feel could help others. That was my drive in writing these two books.


And my sweet friend if you feel the same then let’s get you to writing yours too!.....


The first step is this....

YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE in yourself, girlfriend (or guy). If you don't believe in yourself than who will? If you don't have confidence in you, then who is going to? If you don't wake up everyday with a mindset that you are going to do better and be better and share your gift than how are you gonna get your story out there? BE YOUR BIGGEST FAN!!! This might not even be a book thing- maybe it is just something you have been wanting to do or branch out and you are too scared? Do not let FEAR rule you. Living in fear is just as isolating as living in your comfort zone sweet sister (or bro).


Step two..

WRITE...just start writing and sharing with whoever will listen. Get feedback. Take constructive criticism. Write like your talking to a friend. Just lead with your heart. Yes, you will edit and you will cut things out but just for God's sake start writing.


Step Three..

Start a FREE blog. There are platforms gall-ore out there. Grab one up and just learn as you go. Google can help you a ton. Think of a domain name - snag that up before anyone else does. I bought like 3 domains before I settled on HealthyHairdresserAddie!


Step Four...

Find an amazing editor ( Ask me for a recommendation)


Step Five.....

These are the words I have been saying EVERY SINGLE DAY since I started my blog. "God, let them see you in me." I say it every morning and before I write in hopes that my words are coming from above and not just myself. That my words will move a heart or save a tear. That my words will heal the broken or give someone the step of courage they need. I pray.


Step Six...

CELEBRATE small achievements and enjoy the process. Listen to this.

IF you are never celebrating small milestones then you will never feel happy or content on your road. You may never get the big break but if you are not even enjoying the process then girl, what is the point?


Step Seven...

You can never have enough content so write as much as you can. After you feel like you have a story to publish. Use KDP select on Amazon to self publish. It is easy - if I can do it so can you.


Step Eight...

Let me SEE IT! Can't wait.
