About this ebook

The award-winning book, A, B, & Cs of Author Partnering, guides you through the process of creating a partnership, establishing a productive work environment, and producing the work of fiction, non-fiction, or a journal article. Authoring a book or article with a writing partner can take the sting and isolation out of a solo writing project. Multi-book authors, Joy Don Baker and Terri Goodman, will guide you through the author partnering process by understanding the following:


- Alignment (A) is the foundational component that explores the what and why of the partnership and its targeted product. 

- Balance (B) focuses on the need for author partners to respect their work-life responsibilities and ensure this critical element is incorporated into their production process. 

- The seven Cs include Commitment, Contract, Communication, Conflict Resolution, Commerce, Creativity, and Call to Action. 

The included workbook provides activities to help partners craft their strategies and maximize their collaborative efforts. The A, B, & Cs of Author Partnering presents a meaningful sequence of topics that can be read cover to cover or selectively to meet specific needs. Working collaboratively brings a diversity of strengths and skills to the project. As a team, partners provide a broader platform to address the variety of tasks involved in writing, publishing, and marketing. Their commitment to one another and to the project keeps them focused on their work while enjoying the process and celebrating accomplishments throughout the writing journey.
