I especially loved her advice, "Dream Big but plan small" and "Become audaciously obsessed." this inspirational book will give you push that you need if you dare to uncover the prosperous author lurking inside you.
What I really like about The Prosperous Author is that it is a great book to read before you even put pen to paper. There are a zillion books on the market which tell us how to market and publish our books. This book stands apart from the rest in that it gets your head in the right mindset to create the best possible book.

"Cassandra Gaisford has moulded a helpful resource in her latest publication "The Prosperous Author", together with helpful ideas encouraging readers to believe in their writing, or in my case, in my project, she also presents challenges to motivate the reader, well-chosen examples of successful writers and honest offerings of her own journey.
This book provides well researched ideas to support anyone who has a dream - to believe in themselves and go for gold, develop that dream into reality, it is not just for writers it is for all of us who have a golden nugget of a dream and want to bring it to full creation."
~ Catherine Sloan, Counselor

"Author Cassandra Gaisford has brought a much-needed book to the self-publishing market. The author of the popular Mid-Life Career Rescue series has published multiple books on Amazon and is now sharing her secrets as a successful author in this latest book "The Prosperous Author: How to Make A Living From Your Writing."
The Prosperous Author is a great read that really dives into the mindset of what it means to not just prosper financially but to live a successful and well-balanced life based on health, happiness and close relationships. This book is definitely for the reader who lacks self-esteem and wants more of it, wants to overcome perfectionism, or has doubt and uncertainty and needs to break beyond these barriers. The Prosperous Author can show you how to do all of that.
This book really has a positive impact on one's mindset. As the author points out in her key message throughout the book mindset is at the core of all our success. It creates emotion and motivation. It brings us up or keeps us down.
The book wastes no time and jumps right into The Millionaire Mindset. We can learn how to think like a millionaire and how to develop the strategies and apply them to our life for attracting more influence and money. By programming your subconscious beliefs you are rewiring your own brain for success. The author teaches us to nurture our thoughts and cast out the negative seeds that are growing there. We can see that attitude is everything.
Energy is another great topic discussed. We can boost our energy by cutting away the relationships and negative influences holding us back. This is one of my favorite chapters in the book. We can "Relive Our Life Story" too, by imagining the life that we could have instead of the life that we wished we had had. Then, in the chapter "Blossom" we learn to pay attention to divine creativity, intuition, and signs of manifestation.
Cassandra gets into the topic of passion and we can see how cultivating a passionate lifestyle frees us up to pursue life's gifts, and to craft our writing into a solid piece of reading material. Write with your purpose and the words will flow much easier.
This book really hits home for me as an author AND someone who is dedicated to carving out purpose, passion and a life of more wealth and health. Every chapter ends with a positive wrap up [Mining for Gold] of the important lessons learned.
The other great chapters will teach you how to:
Dream big, create a new destiny and turn a profit as a successful author. My favorite chapters here are:
Keeping deadlines. Without deadlines, how can we get our work finished? There are solid strategies here for doing just that. As Cassandra points out as well, we can become prosperous authors by journaling our way to success, staying focused on the task, keep doubt out, stick with perseverance, and believing in yourself to get the job done.
This book is well-written, structured and serves as an excellent resource for authors and people looking to fill up their lives with positivity for achieving their goals and objectives.
A definite "Good Read" recommendation."
