I recently had the opportunity to have a conversation with Chad Allen. Chad is a writer, speaker, author, and currently the Editorial Director for Baker Books.

I asked Chad the following questions:

  • What would you tell a blogger who said, “I want to write a nonfiction book, but I don’t have a clue where to start?”
  • What are the main things a publisher looks for when deciding whether or not to publish a book?
  • What would you tell someone who said, “I have a book concept that I’m passionate about, but nobody knows me. Should I still write it?”
  • You’ve worked with hundreds of writers in your 15-year publishing career. What are the practices you’ve seen writers use that have helped them stay motivated and keep on going?
  • It seems like blogging and writing a book may involve some similarities but obviously some differences too. Is there a way to do both at the same time?
