Many people have a book in their minds, or have been told that they should write a book about their experiences. Only a small percentage actually do it, but then the hard part begins. Turning those private pages into a manuscript, then into a published book, then getting the book into the hands of readers are much more difficult tasks.
Finding expert help for such basic things as editing, illustrating, interior book design (formatting), cover design, publishing, marketing, etc., can be harder than the actual writing of the manuscript. And getting information out about the author and the book? Way too many authors learn after the fact that they should have been promoting themselves and their book long before it was available to the public.
