Everybody Has A Book Inside of Them: Offers A Simple Format That Helps Make Writing A Book A Reality
New York, NY, June 1, 2019 — If you have a great story to tell but find the idea of writing a book daunting—get help from a pro! Author of ten books, Ann Marie Sabath makes the whole process so much easier with a simple, proven format she shares in her new book, Everybody Has A Book Inside of Them: How to Bring It Out.
Ann Marie Sabath is the founder of At Ease Inc., a 32-year-old business consulting firm. In addition to Everybody Has A Book Inside of Them, she has written nine other books that have been translated into eight languages. Her last book, What Self-Made Millionaires Do That Most People Don’t became the Spring 2018 Top Selling Business Book for Career Press.

Writing is Fun! Yes it most certainly is! Why? I’m an author and wrote my first novel: FUTURECAST in 2004 by hand. They I transcribed it into Word and finally self-published it in January 2012 on CreateSpace for Amazon and Kindle. I was 52 then. So, what Ann Marie speaks to in her book, is true! You’re never too old to write. Writing is humanity’s way of cataloging our history, our lives.
When you write, you get out what’s inside your head and down on paper. What Ann Marie does is give you a roadmap to start the process. Each chapter gives you stopping points for the journey. Remember, life is a journey not a destination. The people you meet along the way are part of your journey.
Ann Marie says to involve your friends and family. You know what? She’s right! When you share your dream with someone else, it becomes their dream too and when you share your story with someone else, it not only becomes theirs but rather all the people that, that person knows. In a sense writing is therapeutic. Writing brings out what’s deep inside you. If you’re in pain, then writing helps you get it out and make it a story.
Before I ever knew about this [Ann Marie’s] book, I wrote in my book about my relationship with my late father in the main characters’ relationship with his son. I put in there exactly what happened to me because it’s the pain I lived with. My father died on December 3rd, 1987, thirty-two years ago. My hero is gone but he lives still in me and because I got that pain out, I feel free.
Ann Marie speaks of doing research on your book and she’s 100% correct. I did research on what I was writing about because I wanted to be as factually correct as possible. It paid off! Ann Marie also speaks about the time to write a book. The answer? There is no answer. It took me 8 years to write my book, but it doesn’t matter how long it takes. It’ll be ready when you are but don’t wait forever. If you’re facing writer’s block, Ann Marie has a solution. Pick up this book by Ginie Sayles: Writer’s Block Is a Crock! Write a Book In 3 Weeks—Or Less!
Overall, reading Ann Marie’s book now will help me with the sequel to my debut novel. I’m on chapter 16 already and roaring on. She eloquently lays out a plan for writing a book. You just can’t go wrong! She even tells you that if you write 200 words per hour for seven hours a week that means you’ll be writing 2,800 words every seven days. The result is, in sixteen weeks or four months, you’ll have a 45,000-word manuscript. Tada! See, you “can” write a book. My book took 8 years and I did it whenever I could. Don’t take that long, delve deep into you mind and pull out that story before you forget it. Get Ann Marie’s book, Everyone Has a Book Inside of Them and write, write, write!
