Alive Literary is delighted to announce an upcoming book, Living Forward, written by Michael Hyatt, NYT bestselling author of Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World, and Daniel Harkavy, founder of Living Forward, A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want.

“When it comes to life, most of us are spectators,” say Hyatt and Harkavy. “It never occurs to us to plan our lives.  As a result, we drift along, often to destinations we never would have consciously chosen.  But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can live on purpose, determining in advance the outcomes we want to experience.”

Hyatt and Harkavy will share a message with proven, life-tested, step-by-step guides to achieving a better life–a life filled with purpose and passion.  Baker Books will publish Living Forward in Spring 2016.

Alive literary agent Bryan Norman says, “In the world of leadership and personal development, there are no two voices I trust more than Michael Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy. They live by the principles they teach. The quality of their lives, and the results they create in others’ lives and businesses, shows that life-tested credibility.  Their forthcoming book, Living Forward, will be a powerful tool for so many to increase and enhance their day-to-day and year-to-year satisfaction.  It is an honor to be their partner in this mission.”

Hyatt is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Platform:  Get Noticed in a Noisy World and founder of 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever™, Platform University®, and Get Published.  He has been named a top leadership, management, and marketing expert by Forbes, Entrepreneur, and Inc. magazines.  Prior to becoming a fulltime writer and speaker, Hyatt served as Chairman/CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, the largest faith-based publisher in the world (and now part of  HarperCollins).
