How to Write a Book
"Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?
Robert Browning
Everyone has a book in them just waiting to be published!  Burkhart Books has developed an easy and inexpensive way to get your book in print and/or in digital format to be read on a tablet or eReader device.  While most traditional publishers will not work with first-time authors, and most of the self-publishing or print-on-demand (POD) companies cost too much, Burkhart Books partners with you to publish your book and save you money in the process.  In fact, if you you can sell 200 books, you can recoup all of your production cost with the sale of the first printing in many cases.  It should not cost too much to become an author.  It is not too difficult. Burkhart Books makes it easy and inexpensive to get published.  We can help you every step of the way.

Burkhart Books saves you money by allowing you to edit and proofread the work before it is printed.  Everyone knows a former English teacher, or someone with a keen mind and a meticulous eye, who can help, often at little or no cost, to make revisions of a draft, so that it will be grammatically correct and properly formatted, so it is easy to read.  Although Burkhart Books employs professional editors, by doing it yourself you can save hundred's of dollars in production costs.

The one thing that catches the reader's eye the swiftest and the best is a good book cover.  Burkhart Books employs talented artist who can provide the art and layout for your book cover, but again, by doing it yourself you can save money.  Most people know a friend who is an artist who can provide the cover art that best presents the theme of the book as well as the author.  Providing the cover for your book can save you a bundle!

Burkhart Books is passionate about walking authors, especially first-time authors, through the process of production to publish a book.  You do not have to know anything about printing or publishing to get your book in print.  In addition, We are able to assist you in promoting your book once it is printed.  Burkhart Books participates in a worldwide channel of distribution for printed and digital books.  We can even have your book placed in the major wholesalers catalogs to be carried in local bookstores.

Most people do not know how easy it is to write a book and get it published.  Don't be confused. Writing can be hard work, but it can also be very rewarding and bring a level of satisfaction that few other activities can.  The key is discovering what you are passionate about and developing a way to communicate it.  What makes most books so appealing is the personal nature of the narrative.  Readers like to connect with the characters and feel they are part of the story.
Burkhart Books has published books on a multitude of topics for people from all walks of life.  There is an audience for every theme.  Books are a legacy that you can leave for your children and your community.  I like what my father, a gifted speaker and the author of over a dozen books, has said about it…

When we speak, we scrawl in vapor.
When we write, we carve in stone!
What we preach will be forgotten,
What we write lives on and on.

This concept of leaving a legacy of yourself for others embodies the primary reason to write a book and get it published.  You have something to say and it needs to be said.  It also needs to be passed down to coming generations of people who may not even know who you are, but will connect with the words you use to tell your story that can change their lives and the world. 

Very few had ever heard of Oswald Chambers when he died at an early age, but there are very few Christians today who have not read his, "My Utmost for His Highest."  No one would have know who he was without his powerful devotional legacy in print.


Books make a difference because they carry great influence long after the author ceases to write or even inhabit this earth.  If for no other reason, write and be published as a gift to your children to leave them something genuinely personal of yourself.

Writing is a process some enjoy and others endure, but for everyone who persists the prize of a written legacy awaits.  Becoming a published author is even easier than writing the book.  It is as simple as following these simple steps to become a published author.
