A New Book Is Published to Meet the Needs of the

Booming Generation of Active, Vibrant Retirees


Surveys report that writing a book is one of the cherished dreams of the new generation of active, vibrant retirees. To help them fulfill that dream, Caros Books has just released a 321-page guide to writing and publishing after retirement.


                                        “This may be one of the most important

                                         books you own if you are interested in

                                         getting published.”


Released on October 1, a new book The Writer Within You has been hailed by reviewers as filling a long-standing void. “The book offers outstanding support for a

class of hopeful writers, retired seniors who deserve far more attention than they have received,” writes Dan Poynter, one of the gurus of the book publishing industry.


This first-of-its-kind book is designed to meet the needs of the current generation of vibrant Mature Americans who view retirement as an opportunity to realize ambitions that  the demands of family and career made unattainable before. For many of them, the most prized goal is to become a published author.


 The Gallup Organization reports that 81% of mature adults yearn to write a book. When the popular senior web site Eons.com asked 14,000 subscribers to list their “most cherished life dream,” writing a book placed second. Only losing weight outpaced it. 


To help retirees realize that dream, The Writer Within You instructs them in the basics of writing, steers them to the most effective method of publishing and guides them as they promote their finished work.


Subtitled A Step-by-Step Guide to Writing and Publishing in Your Retirement Years, the book stresses the advantages maturity offers to wannabe senior authors. Their many years of professional and life experience help them meet the challenges of the highly competitive world of publishing.


In addition to the chapters on writing, publishing and promoting, this comprehensive book tours readers through the essentials of researching and editing. Several chapters are devoted to writing and promoting on the Web, as well as to article writing and commercial freelancing.


Author Charles Jacobs calls upon his extensive experience as a reporter, editor, freelancer, writing instructor and novelist to provide more than adequate direction to wannabe writers to move their work into print. The book gives them all the guidance they need to able to write and successfully publish either a book or articles.


Supported by glowing reviews, The Writer Within You has already achieved a five star rating on both Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.com. The well known reviewer Laurie Shirley of “Boomer Views,” writes on the Amazon web site, “This may be one of the most important books you own if you are interested in getting published.” The prestigious Writer’s Digest Book Club has chosen the book as one of its selections.


The book has been particularly welcomed by the increasing numbers of baby boomers who are now ending their career years. In their perception of retirement, remaining active and productive far outstrips the more traditional view of long days on the fairways or at the poker table.       


The Writer Within You can be purchased on the web site www.retirement-writing.com or by calling 800-BOOKLOG. Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com and Borders.com are all offering it for sale on their web sites.
