Let’s Talk Writing!

Man! Stepping up to “next levels” happens to be one of the most rewarding – and demanding – aspects of any business. For 25 years, I progressed up corporate management levels. For the past 17 years, I’ve been learning and growing in the writing/publishing realm of life.

For those who don’t know me, I’m a five-time Royal Palm Literary Award-winning author. I’ve written over 20 book manuscripts, nine published so far, with 6 currently in the final phases of completing. I’ve written hundreds of short stories, and thousand of poems as well as numerous essays. I’ve published over 50 authors and nearly 100 books through my small press publishing company. I’ve never published anyone I haven’t met in person.

My true calling and passion, however, is helping writers get their books written. I’ve helped over 100 writers get their books completed, most of them first-time writers. I’ve taken to calling myself “The Book Whisperer.” Initially, I taught a course through the Flagler County School System titled “How to Write Your Book in 30 Days!” based on my book – “Go Write and You Won’t Go Wrong – How to Write Your Book in 30 Days!” I’ve now gone to one-on-one consulting/coaching as I’ve discovered each author brings their own particular needs and levels of knowledge to the book-writing table. By working one-on-one, I am better able to serve and help writers who want to cut through the crap and get their book written. If you do what I ask you to do over a 30 day period, you will have your first draft manuscript completed.

Now I’m stepping into a “video-blog” setup where each week I will deliver some writing tips to help writers in their quest for their creative muse. I’ve titled the weekly video blog – “Let’s Talk Writing!” I’ve set up a category on the blog site which will house only the video blogs for those of you who prefer video over text-driven material. Learning technology and how to present yourself is part of the writing experience. So check back, at least each week, for my latest video blog update.

If you’re searching for a Book Whisperer, someone who can help you take your book out of your heart and mind and into reality. I’m your guy. I have my consulting rates listed here – Michael Ray King Consulting Rates – and I look forward to helping you take your book from conception to completion.

“Have you ever pondered the miracle of popcorn? It starts out as a tiny, little, compact kernel with magic trapped inside that when agitated, bursts to create something marvelously desirable. It’s sort of like those tiny, little thoughts trapped inside an author’s head that―in an excited explosion of words―suddenly become a captivating fairytale!” ― Richelle E. Goodrich
