My guest is Sarah Long, author of “College Cooking 101: Fast Food Without a Kitchen.” She joined the Learning from Smart People Podcast with Rob Oliver to talk about how to write a book and get it published. As an accountant with no writing experience, she managed to get her book published through a traditional publisher and into bookstores across the country.

Here are a few of the topics Sarah long and Rob Oliver discussed during this episode of the Learning from Smart People Podcast:

· The back story on Sarah’s book and why she wrote it
· How she found her unique niche
· Utilizing the tools at hand to cook
· Solving problems with the abilities you have
· How a non-author accountant wrote a book
· Writing a book proposal that gets accepted
· Becoming the solution when none exists
· The business side of a book proposal
· Identifying your target market
· Your nonfiction book can come from your experience solving a problem
· Creative marketing ideas
· Looking at profitability before you start writing
· Developing an eye for opportunity
