Colette Mason the Book Coach, she is a facilitator of books. Have you considered writing a business book?
Many people dream of writing a book, A Memoir, a fiction piece or a business book. With all of our modern technology, it has never been easier to become a published author.
The number of books published every year continues to rise. Book sales it the UK in 2017 was £5.7 billion. Even with our electronic readers, the popularity of the printed word shows no sign of diminishing.
I have to admit I have a few kindle books, but I cannot enjoy them in the same as a physical book. There is a sense of pleasure to be found looking up from my desk to see books on the shelf.
With books are more abundant than ever, has it changed our view of authorship?
No. The people that have written a book have a certain status, the book gives them a credibility in their field that is difficult to match.

Routines and Processes
I like to use these section of the podcast intro to exploring what I am up to. Over the last few weeks, I have been talking about morning routines. So I decided to take the time and create some additional shows or shorts to share my thoughts with you.
These will start next and will be part of a series podcasts in addition to the weekly show. The first few will be routines, exercise maybe food or business, who knows where it will lead.
Let’s talk about books
Colette Mason the book Coach
She has created a formula that will help anyone with some good ideas to create a book. It has been tested and the process and helped ten authors write and publish best-selling books.
Since creating her programme, it has been instrumental in over 3000 titles for different corporate entrepreneurs.
Her journey starts in the corporate world. For many years she was trusted to produce and publish information for the UK Government and big global corporations. There was a high-profile element to this work – knowing millions of people are reading what they produced. It was quite a buzz. But apart from the occasional public inquiry report, the authors never got the credit.
The information was always attributed to an organisation or a department, and never those who spent time at the coal face researching and writing it!
So she jumped ship to set up her own publishing company and set about writing a book. Colette completed her first draft in just 14 days, from where she had it edited and had eventually published.
She wondered what it would do. What followed was an invitation to speak at a conference in Cern Geneva, she got asked to do workshops in Africa and contracting gigs in Australia. She appeared on the radio, in articles in newspapers and magazines. The book open doors that she did not know existed.
Colette is all about process and about efficiency. I hope you enjoy the conversation with Colette Mason.
