Someone reached out to me on LinkedIn about becoming an author on the side. Has anyone heard about such a thing?!? The person said she’s worked with 800 consultants writing their books and marketing it for them.

It’s a joke mate

It’s pretty easy to become an Amazon best seller if you pick a super niche category. That might be part of the gimmick.

Best seller at zombie DYI vegan cookbooks

If you want to pay someone to ghostwrite a book for you that likely won’t sell more than 10 copies, you can give it a whirl.

Keep in mind though if the topic is work related, you’d likely need your firm’s approval before publishing it.

Yes it’s called freedom, you can always be an author for weekends no one has to tell you that

A Georgetown professor (Prof Koester) I know does this, cold Linked-inning folks to write books. I can’t figure out what the rub is.

Not fake. It’s just a book agent trying to market what you know.

Author? Or successful author?

A successful author!

I have seen any LinkedIn profiles saying best selling author. Ex-d. Ex-EY.

So Ill say pretty hard.

Chinese spy!!

The guy from the Christian faith publishing commercials sounds legit. I’d give it go.

Hi all! What are the differences between senior/staff SWE and software architects? Are architects still a thing?

Is this normal? I love mentoring, but I also don't wanna be in meetings all day. 😕
