I have been asked by my friends, relatives and kakis on how did I get my book, The Stage Fright Antidote published.
I thought, ya, why not I share this info for the benefit of others, who would probably like to know how or wanted to get their books published too.
Over the next series of posts, I'll share the nuggets of activities on how I did it. I summarised it as the "How to Publish a Book: 10-Step Process of how I published The Stage Fright Antidote!"
Step 1: First of all, you would need a content. The Stage Fright Antidote was based on a talk I gave at SIM some years back on the topic "Overcoming public speaking fears using acting techniques". After the session, I have received numerous requests asking about that topic. And I went, hey, why not write a book about it? So for others who couldn't attend my talk, at least there is a good resource for reference.
Since I already had my materials and scripts for the talk, I took the next 6-9 months expanding the content with anecdotes and how-to exercises from the theatre that I find useful.
