Why You Should Write A Book

Why You Should Write A Book. You may start out wanting to become a writer or publish a book for the money or fame. You may get both, but as you get into writing you will find that it is a gift. A gift not only to you but to the world as well.

Don’t underestimate the gift of writing, you will find that it is a select and secret honor, and one of the last noble professions, traditions, and rites of passage into the higher world of being human.

Publishing a thoughtful, well-crafted book will take you from where you are of perhaps standing still, not believing that you have something special and unique to offer to others, to realize that you have a deep power within you to reach out and influence the world around you. Your new gift will then become a gift to the world as well.

Share Your Story

Sharing your stories, your life, your hopes, your fears, and your dreams is an honorable act. People love stories and they want to know what life has been or is like for others. Sharing your inner thoughts will be a tonic for you, and for a world needing a good positive dose of humanness as well.

Everyone has a story or a view within them. Don’t worry about becoming a writer. Trust me, no one is born a writer, or a doctor or a bricklayer or any profession. We start our journey guided by ideas and opinions, of our parents and then friends and then others. But, if lucky we seek and then take a path of our own choosing, a path, never traveled before, that leads us to something that fits us perfectly.

It’s uncomfortable at first, but like writing, by doing it day by day, we go from simply performing a job to one day to living a vocation, and to one day having a passion for it. And, then you look back and realize it is your purpose.

Why You Should Write A Book

As a publisher and writing coach I have the honor to help people find their voice, uncover the story deep within them, create and articulate the right words, and then publish a book to share with the world.

Writing matters. Writing a book expands our mind, enriches our spirit and opens the heart. You will find that writing will lead to more reading, and both decrease our sense of isolation in this world. Writing a book expands our circle, connects us to others, and rekindles our hope and faith for the future for ourselves and others.

When you publish a book, you will be as Ann Lamott said, like a lighthouse that shines a bright light for others to see clearer. Lighthouses don’t go running around all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shinning.

Hi, I’m Steven Monahan, CEO at Steven Monahan Publishing.  Prior to becoming a writer, author and now publisher, I was a corporate executive with two of the largest fortune 100 global firms. I loved it for many years, but after a while, I felt constrained, bored and frankly doing something I no longer had a passion for. So, I flew the coop. I took a huge financial and life risk, and left a cushy, but confining corporate world to pursue a new passion. It was one of the better moves in my life and my career.

A decade later I feel deep within me that my calling has been realized. The risk was worth the reward in happiness. Today I feel alive. It was a bit dicey at times, but I became the self-reliant writer, author, and publisher I hoped to become. Today, I feel happy that I can show others how to become self-reliant, empowered and fulfilled as well; by writing and publishing their own great story, for all the world to hear.

Why Indie Publishing

We started an Indie Publishing House because as one inside the writing and publishing field I saw that book publishing as it was done for the past one hundred and fifty years in the industrial age was being disrupted. The big five publishers were being disrupted and displaced by advances in technology and they could no longer guard the door and prevent creative authors and artists from getting their works published.

The internet broke their monopoly on publishing books. Authors, creatives, and entrepreneurs now had a new and better option. They could publish their books through the new age of publishing, Indie Publishing. Indie publishing firms like ours opened the door to all authors to become bestselling authors. Today the majority of books published are by Indie authors and publishers.

Become an Authority in Your Field

We mean it when we say that our purpose and our passion is to help writers as you become purveyors of ideas and knowledge. We truly enjoy working with novice, and experienced writers to respected authorities in their field. Becoming a published author with authority and credibility in your field can change your future.

As a published author your upward trajectory in life and professional success is in your control. In this post-industrial age, entrepreneurs and creatives will not only survive the Tsunami of career and work change blowing across society but today and into the future communicators and authors are becoming the influencers and contributors for a better world
