Overview

We've all made a mess.

And that means we all have a message.

This is the book that shows you how to take the former and make it into the latter.

FROM THE NY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR

When Anna David got sober and sold a book about her recovery to the biggest publisher in the world, she thought she'd made it. She was wrong.

Still, after years of struggle and self-discovery, she ended up thriving personally and professionally. Now she's sharing what she's learned-and showing others how to do the same.

In this page-turning and useful memoir-meets-manual, David reveals her personal lows (doing cocaine by herself while contemplating suicide), her career lows (a past-his-prime celebrity hurling a phone at her as she wrote his biography) and how her life today wouldn't be possible without those experiences.

The last quarter of the book is a practical guide so that readers can make their own mess into a message-and memoir.

In this completely comprehensive "biz-oir" packed with proven and authentic tools and techniques, memoirists-in-the-making will travel with David on her journey from struggling addict to New York Times bestselling writer/entrepreneur and also learn:

-How to determine a memoir message and "why"

-How to select scenes

-The advantages and disadvantages of traditional and self-publishing

-How to come up with a title, rewrite a book and hire editors

-Potential legal concerns and how to avoid them

-How to gather blurbs, write acknowledgments and arrange for a foreword

-How to be set up for success on Amazon

-The importance of an Advanced Reader Team

And much more.
