Paul Lima (Business of Writing) http://paullima.com/blog/
I've been a marketing/technology consultant for over 12 years and I love to write, in fact, I've written four books so far see the book covers at the top of this blog.
What has been your greatest success in writing?
My greatest success has been people telling me that they have tried my recipes or changed something in their life to be more sustainable or that they are considering building or renovating to capture passive solar energy. To me the ultimate goal is for people reading my books to be inspired.
Who has been your greatest influence to write?
I would have to say my husband. He has encouraged me to write and is very supportive. From an author point of view local authors in PEI have inspired me like Julie Watson or other professional writers like Paul Lima.
What advice would you like to give new authors?
To write a non-fiction book you need to focus, set aside dedicated time, and plan out the basics of your book. It helps if you write from personal experience or an area of expertise. Go for it – now is the time!
Where is the best place to promote your books?
The nature of my books lend themselves to experiences i.e gluten-free cooking classes, sustainable living workshops, passive solar house tours, and other workshops. Social media is a good tool - remember you need to provide content and information to add value.
If you could travel anywhere – where would you go and why?
I would love to go to Germany to see the environmental models, renewable energy, green roofs and my heritage is from Hess in Germany on one side of the family.
I love to talk to readers and give feedback when I can – please email me with any questions.
