Bloomington, IND (PRWEB) January 06, 2012
Author Learning Center, the premier online author education resource for writers engaged in any stage of the story development or book marketing process, today announced Mitch Albom, the award-winning journalist, broadcaster and best-selling author whose books have sold over 28 million copies worldwide, will be featured on the site in a series of informative and inspiring video interviews.
“Mitch Albom: Approaching Writing Styles,” is the first of several videos where Albom deconstructs the methods he used to write and market his books, including the non-fiction title, “Tuesdays with Morrie,” which is the best-selling memoir of all time, and “The Five People You Meet in Heaven,” the most successful US hardcover novel by a first-time fiction author ever. Albom is very candid in sharing his strategies and provides intricate details about the common topics authors encounter, including how to deal with writer’s block and methods for determining a writing style. He also weighs in on equally important book marketing and publishing topics, including how to promote a book and how to approach a literary agent or publisher.
“I’m not a draft guy—I never write a version of a book until I’m turning it in—I’m more of a piece-at-a-time guy,” said Albom referencing his own unique approach to writing. “I start with a concept, and I write all over the map. What might be the last chapter, I write on the second day, and I write what I might think is the beginning on the third day—you could say I’m more of a jigsaw puzzle assembler.” To watch the entire interview, click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXwrZ-kvFUo
“Mitch Albom brings a unique expertise to the Author Learning Center as both a best-selling novelist and non-fiction writer—a claim that can be made by very few individuals,” said Keith Ogorek, senior vice-president of marketing at Author Solutions, Inc. “With his background as a journalist, broadcaster, musician, author, playwright and screenwriter, Albom’s experiences touch on many of the day-to-day questions our authors encounter when both writing and marketing their book. He is really a phenomenal resource for the Author Learning Center.”
Albom joins Stan Lee, Elmore Leonard and Victor Villasenor as one of many A-list authors interviewed by the Author Learning Center. Over the next few months, new content will be available from other publishing industry leaders including Morris Ruskin, Pete Nikolai and Jillian Lauren.
