Interview


Tell me a bit about yourself….

I am a certified radiology and ct scan technologist with a strong interest in management and leadership. I recently obtained my MBA in Healthcare Administration and look forward to utilizing this degree in the near future.

What genre/s do you write in?

Business and leadership.

How long have you been writing?

One year ago I started my blog: managementofhealthcare.com and started on my book in the middle of 2019. So pretty much a rookie at all this but learning each day.

Do you have any published books or articles?

Yes, besides my blog I have one book out, so far, “Management: from the outside looking in”

Tell me a bit about these and what publishing route you took.

My blog and book are about management and leadership with an approach that is employee-focused and backed by research of proven methodologies. I went the self-publishing route.

Did you use an editor? If so, who?

I did everything from publishing, editing, and even created my cover.

Did you use a book formatter and cover designer?

Same as above

Did you self-publish or get traditionally published? How did this go for you?

I self-published and I believe my book is well written and has a catchy cover, however, marketing is my biggest struggle.

How do you market your work and promote your brand?(Include links)

I try to help others on Reddit and other platforms in hopes they will click on my bio, which leads to my book. Hasn’t worked well yet.

No

No, just a side gig. Radiology technologist

What are you working on at the moment?

The Donts of Management.

What is your target audience?

Businessman, managers, and leaders.

How long does it take you to write a book?

One full year. Not full-time.

In high school in a creative writing class. Just never utilized until recently.

Days off of work.
