Advice for First-Time Authors


Selma Wilson, the vice president of B&H Publishing Group, knows a thing or two about what it takes to write a book as she works with authors on a daily basis. First, she encourages you to ask yourself “what is my mission and purpose?” Determine how you want your book to affect your readers. Once you define a clear objective, you need to begin shaping that story by outlining the beginning, end and key points.

Wilson offers tips and tricks she has shared with multiple writers to help them hone their message. From there you can develop your content into a deeper level. It’s a challenging process, but the opportunity to put your message into a book is worth the work.
