Free developmental editing tools for writing & self publishing a brand-building book here
Self-publishing authors need developmental editing help even more so than
authors who write books for the world's largest trade publishers
Developmental editing is crucial to authors because it saves time, reduces
stress, and helps sell more books.
What you may not know, though, is that trade publishers provide free
developmental editing assistance to their authors, helping them address the
"big picture" questions that must be addressed.
Unfortunately, this critical step is often ignored by the authors who need it the most--entrepreneurs, self-employed professionals, and subject area experts like you who want to write and self-publishing your first book!
- The reason is usually money; developmental editing can cost a lot of money.
- The result, however, is often frustration, stress, and books that fail to build brands.

Put the power of questions to work
Until now--there hasn't been an easy way to get an overview of the issues that answered in writing and self-publishing a brand-building book, plus an easy way to get started answering the questions--no matter where you are.
Yet, asking questions is the easiest way you can get a big-picture view of your book and how it relates to your readers, your competition, and your goals.
99 Questions to Ask Before You Write and Self-publish a Brand-building Book provides a step-by-step framework for addressing the right questions in the right order.
Your answers to the 99 questions help you create the equivalent of a business plan for your book!
Not a book, but a WORKBOOK
99 Questions to Ask Before You Write or Self-publish a Brand-building Book is not just another book to add to your "books I have to read" pile.
There are less than 25 pages of instructions, ideas, and tips. The remainder consists of the 99 questions, plus space for you to answer each question--right in the book!
After you download it, I suggest you print it on 3-hole paper and add it to a 3-ring binder, so you work anywhere you are, making the most of your time--even if you only have a few minutes between appointments, during short breaks, or before falling asleep at night.

The critics have spoken!
I've shared early copies of my 99 Questions with several variety of authors, editors, and book coaches. Here are a few of their comments:
- It's like having the best writing coach in world in the room with you. Roger's 99 Questions take you through the publishing process--from planning and writing to marketing & profiting--one question at a time. Before you know it, your book is ready to go to work as your personal brand ambassador. John Fox, author: Marketing-Playbook--The Definitive Guide to B2B Marketing
- Roger Parker's new 99 Questions book is an extraordinarily great tool for aspiring and published authors. I've written 15 books and each one would have been better had I answered the questions Roger presents before I started writing. Bud Bilanich The Common Sense Guy, Denver, CO USA
- Like any great work, the craftsmanship and utility of the final product masks the massive effort and patience that went into building it. Roger 's 99 Questions to Ask provides a self-paced step ladder for every conceivable hurdle that otherwise might stop you along the way. William Reed, Tokyo Author, speaker, creativity trainer http://www.williamreed.jp
- Too many authors write first, then think about book promotion. I love this book's emphasis on thinking about marketing from the very beginning of the writing process. It's essential reading for nonfiction authors.Dana Lynn Smith, author of The Savvy Book Marketer guidebooks for authors
