"There were so many authors with great manuscripts and really good ideas, but they didn't have a platform, and as a publisher, I got tired of turning them away," said Hyatt. "I decided I was going to write a book that would help authors build a platform so they could be more successful in their writing careers."

"With experience as a publishing industry leader, a best-selling author, and a popular blogger, Hyatt's insider knowledge of the publishing landscape is a tremendous resource to authors," said Keith Ogorek, senior vice-president of global marketing at Author Solutions, Inc. "He understands the challenges writers face as well as anyone, and we believe our members will find him a very valuable resource."
