But it’s nowhere near impossible. And it’s far more do-able than you can imagine.
The trouble is, most books offering tips on how to write a book fail to address two key considersations:
1) Most self published non-fiction books suck
2) It’s ALMOST impossible to make a living from ONE self-published non-fiction book
Believe me, I tried. No one has more churned out more epic pieces of monumental Kindle crap than I have.
But then, through making every mistake a writer can, I finally learned and honed a simple step-by-step approach to writing books that move readers, and allow me to have a full-time job as a writer.
And it’s that system I’d like to share with you in “How to Write a Book That Doesn’t Suck and Will Actually Sell…”

If you’re starting a movement with your message, and if you’re looking for everything to come into crystal clear focus, read this book.
Angela Lauria’s “The Incubated Author – 10 steps to start a movement with your message” delighted me with its authentic & practical message, expressed with passion, sparkle and lots of experience. Lauria powerfully articulates the importance of clarity and commitment in starting a movement with one’s message, and goes the distance in describing each step of the journey (often a “hero’s journey”) in seven well-researched, well-written chapters. This is a terrific book – practical, philosophical and comprehensive – for those who want to make a difference in the world by sharing their transformative message.

Wisdom just flows through the pages of this book. If you’re called to write a book, read this one! Thank you, Angela Lauria, for sharing your messages so powerfully and clearly – again.
~ Esther Goldenberg
The Incubated Author turns how you think about writing a book on its head. It forces you to get crystal clear about who the book is for, how they will be different and how to create a movement with your message – BEFORE you ever start writing. When you get that clarity up front, you write a book that can beautifully support your vision, attract the people that most need your message and grow your business. Angela Lauria is a master at this and she’s doing what no one else in publishing is doing today.
