HOA INterview Banner Krayl Funch with Tara Richter 1200x357

I, perhaps like may of you reading this article,  have had a dream of writing my own book. {A goal of mine which is currently underway, you can even check out my cover drafts here.} But struggled with where to start.

How long will it take? Self Publish vs Publisher? Agent, No Agent? What’s the difference and most importantly, what is right for me? So when I recently had coffee with a contact through a mutual friend and she told me not only had she already written 4 books, but was now coaching others through the process I just had to get her on my interview series.

We have all heard of the Richter scale, but have you heard of Tara Richter? If you haven’t before you will shortly. Tara Richter is the Self Publishing Expert and can fast track you from zero written words to a fully published book in 4 weeks. Or perhaps you are looking for a slower ride, maybe you already have your book written but aren’t sure what to do next. Tara is still your girl to. Watch and learn how starting before you are ready can make all the difference and that with a little support you can soon be well on your way to being a published author.

{And for all you cat lovers… watch for her feline friend to make an appearance.}

A Few Of My Favorite Quotes:

Regarding Publishing a Book: “I never said it was easy. If it was everyone would have a book.”;  “if you want someone to kick your butt and get it done, I will do it.”;  “If you organize your blog you can write a book in 6  months.”; “Just start writing. It will take on a life of its’ own.”

Regarding Business:  “My goal is to franchise Richter Publishing and have everyone write a book.”; “Most people build a business then publish a book. I published a book then made a business out of it.”

“I started composing my first book in May 2011. Back then I had no idea how to publish a book, I didn’t even know anyone who was a published author. I just knew my entire life I wanted to be a writer.  What I did have was my creativity, resourcefulness and determination. I discovered the secret recipe of how to write, publish and market a book myself without breaking the bank. Why? Because I had to. There was no other way around it. I either gave up on my dreams of being a published author or I pushed through and found a path that worked for me.

Two years later I have 4 books. I have been featured on TV and radio stations all over the world. I was a finalist for Tampa Bay’s Business Woman of the Year in 2013 & a nominee for Tampa Bay’s Up & Coming Businesses for 2013. I am now personally coaching Kevin Harrington from the “Shark Tank” & Anthony Amos, Multi Founding Franchisor & Partnership Expert, on their joint book coming out in early 2014.

Being a published author was my ticket to success. Now I want to share my secret recipe with everyone! If I  (a woman from a small town in Nebraska with no connections 3 years ago) can write, publish and market a book myself, so can you!  Subscribe to my blog to be notified of corresponding seminars & contact me for personal coaching sessions to get your book in print!”
