Personal Finance Books on Sale

November 11, 2013

How long do you think it takes to write a personal finance book? How long would it take you to write a book on something that you’re really passionate about?

What you don’t realize until you get deep into a book project is that you, the author, tend to make the whole process of writing a book take much longer than it would have to be. The desire to get everything right for the reader’s means that you spend hours a day re-writing sections and changing whole chapters in order to make your points crystal clear.

The end result is typically that books take longer to write than planned but it’s a labor of love and all the time you put into the project turns out to be worth it. Capturing your expertise, experiences, or advice into memorable and actionable sentences, paragraphs, and chapters means that you can save others from making your same mistakes. Or maybe you’re able to share a system that was uber-successful for you and has the potential to help many others with their money.

Once the book hits Amazon and you start getting reader feedback you’re glad that you put in the time and shared your nuggets of knowledge with the world. I met a group of self-published authors in St Louis last month that have been through this process.

They’ve written books on a variety of personal finance topics such as:

-Earning extra money
-Saving money at the drug store
-Getting out of debt
-Hiring a financial advisor
-Investing and IRAs
– Social Security and Retirement

Collectively they’ve logged hundreds, probably even thousands, of hours putting together books on the topic of managing your money. After the conference, several of us put our heads together and decided as a group to make our books available to you at a discount for a brief time.

Personal finance types are a fan of books because they’re a cost effective way to learn. Books can contain a lot of useful information for a pretty low price so the frugal side in us sees them as a preferred learning method. None of the books that we published are that pricey to begin with but we decided to offer them at a discount in advance of Black Friday.

Unfortunately, many of us tend to get a little reckless with our finances during the holidays. The emotions of the season can cause us to make some bad money decisions. So take some time this week to absorb some of the books we have on sale and read up on ways to protect your money during the holiday shopping madness and to get your finances ready for the new year.

My contribution to the sale is the Debt Heroes book I helped put out earlier this year. It should give you some good tips to stop debt from creeping up on you during the holiday shopping madness. So take advantage of all the hours these personal finance authors spent packaging together tips and tools for your money and check out the book deals. They’re only running for a few days this week so head over and see if there’s anything there you can use.
