Guest Post: Debra Moore – The Business of Writing

Authors–you’ll want to pay attention to today’s post. Yes, it’s promo for a new book, but this one is directed at authors, not readers. I’ve had the opportunity to preview Debra’s book and there are some really useful tools inside. See what she has to say…


Hey, girl! Guess what I’ve been up to?

Remember that conversation we had a while back about writers and finances? Well, I took your advice to heart and wrote the book that needs to exist! My new book, The Business of Writing, went live on Amazon last week! Unlike other finance and business books out there, this one is geared specifically to writers and the challenges we face.

I’ve been doing bookkeeping and creative writing for over twenty-five years, and I was finallyable to combine the numbers side and creative side of my brain to produce a book every writer will find useful.

My book will show how to save time and money all year long as well as during tax season. This way, writers can focus on writing instead of stressing over the financial side of the business.

In the book, I’ve included information on managing the daily bill and receipt piles with a tool called the Money Journal. There are tips and tricks on tracking all financial matters along the way quickly and easily—and in a way that will save them time and money at tax time. The book covers how the structure of our businesses is so important and can make a huge difference come tax time. Also, the book has an exhaustive list of expenses specific to writers—some that writers are probably already tracking, and many they may not be.

There is a lot more information in the book, and I included loads of links to forms I designed, spreadsheets writers would find helpful, and IRS publications every writer should know about.

I know you get financial questions all the time. Here’s the link to the Amazon page. There’s more information about everything the book contains there. I priced it economically so every writer could get one.
