The Business of Writing
By Debra Moore

You’re a writer. Congratulations on pursuing your dream! I’m a writer—and a numbers geek. After twenty-five years of working in financial positions all over the United States, I opened my bookkeeping service, Moore Bookkeeping, to allow myself more freedom with my time. I wrote THE BUSINESS OF WRITING to help writers feel confident in the money side of their writing careers.

I realized from my own experience and the experience of other writers I know that the number one question a writer asks after starting to live the dream is this—what do I do about the money?

Right now, you’re in one of 3 places:

You’re getting started and aren’t making a lot of money yet.
You’ve been writing and are making some money.
You’ve been writing and are making more money than you ever imagined.
So what to do?

Even if you hire out your financial work, you need to know what’s happening with your money. There are too many horror stories about people entrusting their finances to an “expert” only to find themselves mismanaged, robbed or flat broke. You don’t want to be that writer, and I don’t want you to be that writer.

So, along with all of the other information in the book, I’d like to share with you my Top Ten Financial Do’s for Writers.

1. Pay your bills on time.
2. Keep every receipt.
3. Before you start your business, consult an accountant familiar with this industry.
4. Create your Money Journal and stay organized.
5. Decide exactly what you’d like your business to accomplish and visualize what it looks like when it’s successful. Begin planning for that day.
6. Use a cash flow spreadsheet and update it at least monthly to be sure where your company stands.
7. Start a new Money Journal with each new tax year. (You may ultimately decide to enter every check into your computerized accounting system. If so, you’ll record the details on your Income and Expense Worksheets broken down by month into your program, being sure to add one more column—check number.)
8. Use your Money Journal to gather information, but transfer the information to an accounting program or hire someone to do it for you.
9. Hire a CPA to do your income taxes. The benefits will far outweigh the costs.
10. Accept that good bookkeeping is what holds the long-term success of your dream together, and a little time spent each month will pay big dividends at tax time.

Allbooks Reviews INTERVIEW:

Please state your name and location. (City and State or Province, Country)

David Poulter, Tainan, Taiwan ROC.

Tell us the title and publisher of your book:

The Idiot: I was a lunatic from a Geordie Grangetown. Chipmunkapublishing UK, sponsored by the Arts Council.

Tell us about yourself:

I was born in Sunderland, have a degree in Fine Art and still practice art. I love natural landscapes. Currently I live and work in Taiwan.

When was the book released?:


Give us an overview of your book.

An account of a man’s life who develops schizophrenia. His obsession with beauty and Durer’s “Melencholia”. His constant questioning of reality and what real madness is considering the polluted state of the planet and humanity’s never ending drive for economic growth. This compared and contrasted with his own flaws.

What inspired you to write this book?

Firstly I think if anyone truly considers the world, its past and present, the big picture is very confusing. Secondly the idea of what ‘madness’ really is
can be debatable. And lastly my own personal experiences.

How is your book different from other books in this genre?

Chipmunkapublishing is a mental health publisher and I like to think I have helped in the understanding and acceptance of schizophrenia. Since the book is written from a viewpoint from within I hope everyone can see it as something that can be easily managed.

Where can people buy your book?

The book can be bought from the publisher’s website. Also it is available from a number of online bookstores.

Are you working on another book? If so when do you expect it to be published?

At the moment I’m writing various pieces. I have no deadline for another book.

If published traditionally, tell us how you benefited:

At this time it is still thrilling to see my work in actual print by a genuine publisher. I am now concentrating on publicity, so it is all a learning experience.

Can you share one of your marketing successes with us?

I’ve had two good reviews posted on Amazon. I think I relaxed too much after the book was published. Publicity is really important.

How did you find Allbooks Reviews and what are you hoping for in your relationship with us?

I found Allbooks Reviews while browsing the internet and I hope for greater exposure and more feedback.

Was the low cost a surprise? What other things would you like Allbooks Reviews to offer writers?

Well compared to other sites you do offer lower rates and obviously you cannot guarantee anything. Let’s hope everyone tries their best.

Thank you for this interview and best of luck with your book.
