Why write a book as a business owner
As a business owner you’re aware of the importance of being seen as a person of influence in your industry. Having a book makes the statement that not only are at the top of your game, you’re the one setting the trends and writing the guide on how it should be done. By raising your head above the business parapet you’re prepared to stand by your words and letting yourself be seen.
A business book offers:-
- Credibility, setting yourself to be the expert in your field and standing by your words.
- Market reach and profile
- The best business card in the world
- Great entry level product to showcase your experience and capabilities and allow a prospective client to get to know more about you and your philosophy before committing to more expensive services – an essential tool in an optimised marketing ecosystem
- Humans naturally communicate via stories, in telling even technical knowledge in this format of a story you are able to transfer complex concepts and information.
Direct & Indirect Benefits
Unless your name is Richard Branson or Tony Robins, writing a business book is unlikely to generate a major direct income. However, as our clients have found, it can generate literally hundreds of thousands worth of additional sales for your business.
Creation of a book creates a significant repository of information from which you can slice, dice and segment to use for client communication and social media.
“To teach is to learn twice” – in taking the time and discipline to commit your thoughts and knowledge to paper, you will also gain a better insight into how you know what you know and do what you do….
And it’s not all about the money… there are a whole raft of potential self-actualising benefits too:
- Tick that item off your bucket list
- Make your mum and kids proud
- Give something back

FCM Publishing – We understand the power of words..
Are you looking for a speaker to give your business event a boost? Taryn Johnston is an innovative and creative speaker on publishing and why it’s OK to put your head above the business parapet..
”I’ve been working with Taryn for what must be 7 years now, and she has constantly provided me with fantastic opportunities to work with numerous authors during that time. She is always fantastic as an intermediary between the writer and artist, allowing the ideas from the author to be translated as clearly as possible in helping me create the design or artwork that suits their needs. The proof of Taryn’s quality as a publisher is reflected in her extensive client list, which attracts authors from all walks of life and professions who trust her to help bring their stories and lessons to a whole new audience. When I finally get around to writing a book of my own, Taryn will definitely be who I turn to to help make that a reality!”
I have worked with lots of publishers and editors over the course of my 30 books but none have lived up to the great experience I had working with Taryn. Taryn is personable, forgiving and an expert in her field and I do not hesitate in recommending her services to budding and experienced authors alike.
Taryn believed in the book when many others didn’t. She was enthusiastic from the start, progressed it smoothly to a final manuscript and then a published book. All with a personal touch, making me feel a valued partner not just another aspiring author. I recommend Taryn very highly.
I’ve come to know Taryn Johnston as not only a publisher but a caring and compassionate person who makes any author feel that she or he is important. As a first-time published author, I spent many a night doubting myself but Taryn was always there to offer advice, encourage, motivate and sometimes simply listen. She’s a stickler for detail. When we received the proof copy from the printer, I thought it looked superb, but Taryn picked up that the left margin was two millimetres wider than the other!
I cannot recommend her highly enough. In this day and age where it’s very difficult, often impossible to find a publisher who is approachable, Taryn is the exception to the rule. She is passionate about her work and goes out of her way to assist her authors. No wonder she is highly appreciated and respected by each and every one of her authors.
Taryn always refers to a book as ‘our’ book, and that is exactly what sets her apart, she is committed and totally involved in your project.
I am thrilled that she deemed my book worthy of publishing and I thank my lucky stars that I landed next to her at a networking event!
Having never written a book before, where to start with publishing it? I was put in touch with Taryn, who quickly and ably took me through the process, options, considerations and actions. This allowed me thinking time and choice. Helped me determine to go the self publishing route or through Taryn. Right throughout the process I was supported and at any time I could check in and question things. I was able to get feedback, input and challenge which was always helpful. Taryn’s editing allowed me to keep on track and reflect on my writing and content. Taryn was able to take the publishing process away from me which allowed me to focus on and finish the writing without distraction. Without her the process would have been much more drawn out and cumbersome. The bones of a second book are formulating, will happily return to Taryn’s safe pair of publishing hands!
My stories would have remained gathering dust and forgotton if not for FCM Publishing. Thank you so much for all of your help and support.
What a wonderful thing it is to see your words in print. Thank you
Taryn has been very effective in bringing my books to the attention of retail traders and the major book chains including Waterstones, Amazon, Foyles and others. I was thrilled when Taryn had the books listed in the British Library Catalogue. Thank you Taryn!
