Abstract

Dr. Don Daake, Ph.D. (Florida State 1995), Business Professor Emeritus, and Dr. Edward Piatt, Ed.D. (ONU 2011), MBA Adjunct, share their secrets about writing and actually getting published. They are particularly interested in faculty and students who would like to join them as co-authors or anyone who enjoys writing and wants to get published. To paraphrase an old adage, "If a tree falls in the forest with no ears to hear, does it make a sound. It matters not for the tree has fallen." Our version “If you write something and practically no one reads it, have you really written it?”

We have had a conservative “cumulative” readership of over 7-9 million readers over 13 years, including international readers. Ed and Don share the challenges, joys, opportunities, and positive influence writing can have on thousands of readers. If published in book form, these columns would be equivalent to over ten average length books.

Tips included: working with your publisher, using co-authors, coming up with original ideas, integrating cutting edge research, and getting selected by other media outlets (such as the AP, CBS online, and others.) Earlier versions of this presentation were given at two national conferences in Orlando and Arkansas. It is being submitted for an October 2022 CBFA conference in Oklahoma City. Dr. Daake also shares his extensive experience with peer-reviewed publications and the similarities and differences between these types of publications.
