My Review

How to make money from writing? - A question I have asked very often. 
The question of how to write is discussed amply. I have read articles about writing, watched videos, and have put the quotes regarding this where I see them often.

When I read the title of Tiffany Shand's book, I was immediately fascinated. Making money from writing is any writer's dream. 

In How to Write a Business Plan for Writers, the author talks about the practical aspects of writing. Who would not want to live in a cocoon of writing, not having to worry about getting it published, publicizing it, selling it, and more.
Well, dream on.

While dreaming, make time for this book to figure out how to live in the real world as a writer.

This book lists out the steps for 'treating the job of being an author as an actual business'.

From choosing what to write, comparison between Traditional and Self Publishing, and budgeting time and money, is all discussed in this book

"Writers write books, but in this new world of digital publishing, they have to be a lot more than that. Writers have to be marketers and entrepreneurs... Writing a book is really only the tip of the iceberg."

With the experience of having published independently, the author talks about her realization that just writing the book is not the end. It is actually the beginning.

How to Write a Business Plan for Writers is not only about selling your book, it begins with the process of choosing what to write, how to write

It is a self-help book that focuses on exploring oneself to zero in on what to write, the process of writing, identifying ones' readers, and then making sure they know about your book.

Tiffany Shand gives a step-by-step framework. Now one just needs to sit back, ponder, be alert, and start writing.

When you wrote your first book you thought you'd sit back, watch the royalties roll in and start working on your next book, right? Being an author today is so much more than just writing. Writing is a business and has to be treated like one.
In this short ebook I'll take you through the reasons why you need a business plan, how to write one and the different elements that make up one to help you become a successful author.
