Writing is lonely but fascinating work. That’s why I love talking to other writers, especially accomplished ones like my good friend, Max Lucado. I had the privilege of being his publisher for many years.
As you probably know, Max is the author of almost 100 books with more than 80 million copies in print. There are probably less than five authors in the world who are that prolific—or that successful. It’s mind-boggling.
A while back I had the opportunity to sit down with Max and talk about his writing process. In this five-minute interview, he shares:
Several months ago, I hosted a teleseminar with Jeff Goins. If you don’t know, Jeff is a full-time author, blogger, and speaker. I wanted to re-post it here as a way of introducing you to his Tribe Writers course (more about that in a minute).
We had some technical challenges in the call when we were both suddenly dropped by Skype—twice!—but we kept forging ahead. Regardless, Jeff shared some powerful content for anyone who is serious about building an online platform.
This is a guest post by Brian Casel. He is web designer and author of Design for Conversions, a book to help startups design a better marketing site. You can read his blog and follow him on Twitter.

One Secret to Reading More
People tell me all the time that they know they should be reading more but can’t find the time. They also tell me they know they should be exercising but can’t find the time.
I have good news. You can kill two birds with one stone. All you have to do is join Audible.com and listen to audio books while you exercise. I have been doing this for years. It’s one of the reasons I am able to read as much as I do and stay in shape.
The Audible app for iPhone is terrific. You can listen to books at normal speed, 1.5x, or even 2x. It really enables you to cover a lot of ground at once. I can usually read about a book a week using the Audible app.
My wife, Gail, often travels with me when I speak at various events. Inevitably, she is asked, “How do you live with a entrepreneur?”

In fact, two literary agents have encouraged her to write a book on this topic. So I sat down and interviewed her about this very topic. It was lot of fun. So much so, that we made this a three-part series.
When I first stepped away from my role as the CEO of Thomas Nelson, I reveled in the freedom. I felt a little fear, to be sure. But mostly, I was excited about doing what I loved, and leaving behind the corporate bureaucracy and the non-stop parade of meetings.
I want to make my blog better and more relevant to your needs and interests. To do that, I need to know more about YOU. As a result, I have created my 2013 Reader Survey.
Would you please take a few minutes to fill out the survey? By doing so, you will ultimately be helping yourself. Why? Because you will be helping me make my content even more interesting and relevant to you.
As a busy blogger, podcaster, author, speaker and consultant, I get asked all the time about the tools I use to get it all done.
So I decided to let you peek inside my toolbox and wrote a simple ebook with ALL of them.
