Topic: So You Want To Be An Author?

Synopsis:

Without a doubt, a book is the greatest leveraging tool available to people who wish to build their own brand and become an authority in their field. Indeed, it will be a waste if you do not turn your valuable experiences and expertise into a book and share your knowledge with others while leaving a legacy for yourself.

Guaranteed to almost give you instant credibility without fail each time, a book is a powerful way to raise your visibility and increase mind share in your industry.

If you are ready to welcome a new change in your life, Kok Hwa shall share with you how you can leverage on this tried-and-tested tool to attract tons of opportunities too.

About Kok Hwa:

Phoon Kok Hwa is a Publisher and Publishing Coach at Candid Creation Publishing, where he has spent the last decade helping over 200 aspiring authors to get their books written, published and marketed.
Kok Hwa is a literary agent at heart, nurturing and extracting the potential book out of every aspiring author.

He believes that there is a book in every person, just waiting to be published. It comes as no surprise that he does not even restrict himself to a particular genre as he believes that authors can come from all walks of life, and are most compelling when they are themselves, writing about a subject that is close to their hearts.

Kok Hwa continues to look for the distinct voices emerging from Singapore and Asia. His hope to broaden the appeal of Singapore's published works continues to fuel his passion and creative flair for helping authors identify personally compelling narratives to drive their writing style.

Apart from his personal beliefs in author expression, he also believes in a pragmatic aspect to publishing a book--personal branding--often stating that nothing produces instant credibility faster than giving away a book as a calling card.
