WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. - April 22, 2013 - PRLog -- April 22, 2013 – Sylvia Cary, LMFT, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the Los Angeles area with a total of five published books to her credit, has just be named a winner in the Los Angeles Book Award contest for her latest book, “The Therapist Writer: Helping Mental Health Professionals Get Published” (Timberlake Press).

There are thousands of mental health professionals who have decades of valuable experience and expertise in their specialties, but sadly few of them take the time to write down what they know, get published, and help others in the process. In fact, most are clueless about how to get a book published because they are too busy being therapists to find out. “Now, finally, here’s a step-by-step guide for therapists to make their book idea into a completed manuscript,” says Marti Olsen Laney, Psy.D., LMFT, best-selling author of “The Introvert Advantage” (Workman Publishers).

“The Therapist Writer” is jam-packed with writing information on how the new world of “indie” publishing and phenomenon of e-book hits can benefit the therapist writer.  The book helps therapists pick topics to write about, nail down a “niche” approach, decide on which publishing option is best for them, deal with special issues for therapist writers (such as confidentiality), zero in on salable angles, begin to build a therapist’s platform and then start marketing their book like mad from A-Z.  In fact, you don’t even have to be a therapist to benefit from the advice and tips in this book.  It’s a book for all writers.

“Getting a book published is the quickest way for a mental health professional – or anyone in any profession -- to become known as an expert,” Cary says. “I did it. Others therapists have done it. You can do it.”
