Watch: How to Write a Book

Published authors Marion Fasel, Rob Bates, and Bill Boyajian discuss when, where, and how they hit their deadlines.

Ever think about writing a book, but have no idea where to start? The latest guests on “My Next Question” can help.

On Aug. 10, Editor-in-Chief Michelle Graff virtually sat down with Marion Fasel, Rob Bates, and Bill Boyajian—three well-known figures in the jewelry industry who also happen to be published authors—to talk about writing.

Marion, Rob, and Bill discussed their sources of inspiration, how they organize their notes, when they write (only one confessed to being a late-at-night writer; we’ll let you guess who it was), and more.

Watch the full session above.
