Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is Michael H. Forde and I am an author, motivational speaker, and public health professional. I have written one book, “Success Begins From Where You Are!”.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The name of my latest book is, “Success Begins From Where You Are!”. What inspired me to write this book was the drive to help others who may feel hindered on their journey to success – some of the same emotions I felt before I wrote the book.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not that I know of! But I sure do love to read my writings over and over and over again.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Dale Carnegie’s, “How To Win Friends and Influence People”, has been one of my greatest influences. The book speaks to me on a deeper level, providing me the guidance needed to elevate others to the next level.
What are you working on now?
I am currently working on something big; I can’t wait to share!
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
When it comes to promoting my book, my best method is via word of mouth. It is great to have friends and family help you get started on sharing your book!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
My advice for new authors would be to just do it. Don’t wait until a perfect time to write your book – there is no such thing. Get started with your dreams today, not tomorrow.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
The best advice I ever heard was from Kobe Bryant – success is simple mathematics. The more time you put into your craft, the more results you will see.
What are you reading now?
I am currently reading, “Think and Grow Rich”, by Napoleon Hill.
What’s next for you as a writer?
As a writer, I aim to become more involved in projects that will motivate and inspire people to be the very best versions of themselves.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
The 3 books I would bring with me are as follows:
1) The Power of Positive Thinking – Norman Vincent Peale
2) Awaken the Giant Within – Tony Robbins
3) How to Win Friends and Influence People – Dale Carnegie
