A Self-Study Book Writing Course
How many times have you thought about writing that book that lives inside you? How often do you feel a calling to share your unique message with the world? Do you often feel that by sharing your story you could help others on the same path as you? Or perhaps you've even started writing your book but for one reason or another did not find the time nor the resources to finish?
First and foremost, I want you to know you are not alone. Each year when I launch the 8-Week Book Writing Intensive, I hear from many aspiring authors just like you, who have a book they've been thinking about writing, but have been held back by fear, lack of experience, lack or resources, or the one I hear most often ... lack of time. 

Sound familiar? 
For example, perhaps you:
  •  Have always dreamed of becoming a published author but don’t know where or how to get started...
  •  Began writing a book only to abandon the project in fear that you just aren’t good enough...
  •  Have a book or message within you that you’ve been meaning to share, but have yet to find the time to sit down and write...
  •  Are looking for accountability and structure to outline your goals and see them through to completion...
  •  Feel you’re a good writer but lack the training and knowledge to complete a book...
  •  Find yourself wondering, "Who am I to write this story?" 
  •  Have thought about hiring a mentor or joining an accountability group to help you achieve your goals...
  •  Are a seasoned writer with a desire to hone your craft and take your writing to the next level...
If any of the above statements resonate with you, the 8-Week Book Writing Intensive may be just the program to help you finally realize your book-writing goals and see your project through to completion!
You see, those thoughts are common and almost every author experiences the same fears and hesitations at one point or another in their book-writing journey. It's that ego-based thinking that hinders our progress and holds us back from accomplishing those goals and realizing our dreams. That's why in this program, I not only walk you step-by-step through the entire book-writing process, but I work with you on removing those blocks that hold you back, so you can share your message with confidence and silence those crippling fears that arise along the way.
We'll delve deep within, and extract your most heartfelt writing through a variety of proven techniques to ensure your authentic voice emerges. I'll show you how to find your goal word count based on the type of book you are writing, and then find a target daily word count to keep you on track to completion.

At the end of the eight weeks, you'll not only have a roadmap for your book-writing journey and be well on the way to completing your first draft, but you'll also have the tools and resources needed to complete the process and see your project through to publication.

You'll gain lifetime access to the course with enrollment, and you are welcome to work through the modules at your own pace and reference the materials and resources at any time. 

I've created this course to walk you through each step of the process, so you'll not only write a high-quality book you can be proud of, but you'll know how to choose the publishing option that's right for you, and how to launch and market your book like a pro to set yourself up for success upon publication!

Ready to get started? I'll see YOU on the other side!

Bestselling author of several books including Authorpreneur
P.S. If you're waiting for the perfect time to write your book, I'm here to tell you ... the timing may never be just right. There will always be a reason, an obstacle, an excuse. You have to create time to write, and more importantly, you have to make your book and your goals a priority. It's easy to put off our dreams to take care of others, but don't you owe it to yourself to finally write that book that's been living inside you? Don't let another year pass you by...

She is the Founder of Spiritual Writers Network, and President & CEO of Transcendent Publishing. As a mentor, Shanda aims to educate aspiring authors not only on the business of writing and publishing, but also how to grow an empire based on the core concepts of their published work.

Shanda is experienced in both fiction and non-fiction writing, specializing in print and digital publishing, and she enjoys assisting authors throughout the entire process, from idea to publication. She understands each writer has individualized needs, and aims to educate authors on the options available so they can choose the writing and publishing path that’s right for them. 
But first, she works diligently with her clients to lead them through the writing process, helping to find their voice and extract the unique messages they possess within. 

To date, Shanda has assisted in the publication and launch of over 100+ Amazon #1 bestsellers.
What if I don’t plan to publish my book but just want to get started writing? Is this program for me?
Absolutely! Shanda realizes not every writer has the same publishing goals; in fact, she urges her clients and students to research as many publishing options as possible. The opportunity to pitch a book proposal for publication is an added bonus to the program. Participants are not required to submit their work or a book proposal at any time. Those options are available but not mandatory for participation or certification.
You mention the opportunity to submit a book proposal for a chance at an awarded publishing package. What does that entail?
The awarded publishing package will include professional cover design, interior layout and design, publishing of the print and digital editions, professional editing, ISBN and barcode, registration with the Library of Congress, book launch management and much more—all clearly defined within the publishing agreement and awarded via Transcendent Publishing.
I’m shy and don’t feel comfortable working in groups. I’m trying to build my writing confidence, that’s why I’m considering this program.
Shanda understands that writers are often introverted by nature. Although she sees the Facebook group as a great asset for applying accountability, participation is not mandatory, but strongly recommended. The support of the group has been proven to keep participants active and accountable throughout the program and beyond. 
What if I fall behind, should I just remove myself from the group?
Absolutely not! Shanda understands that each writer works at a different pace, that’s why she offers lifetime access to the Facebook group as well as to all the modules and resources in the course platform. There will be a wealth of information for participants to refer back to at any time. Additionally, all participants have the option to join any future 8-Week Book Writing Intensives at no additional charge. If you lose your confidence or fall behind, you will always have access to the information when you are ready to jump back in.
Are 8 weeks enough time to complete a book?
Yes, it's plenty of time to complete a first draft of a book as long as you have the desire and commitment. In this program, Shanda will coach you on the importance of developing a daily writing habit, whether you are writing a 300-page work of fiction or a 100-page How-to eBook, she will show you how to develop a targeted daily word count and stay focused on the task at hand. And remember, you'll gain lifetime access to the modules and resources and have the option to work through all future Intensives if you'd like to take more time to craft your book. You do not have to finish your book in eight weeks, but by the end of the program you will have the tools and resources to complete the book-writing process.
You state that participants will be awarded a certificate of completion. How do I go about receiving my certification?
At the end of the 8-week program, you will have an additional 60 days to work through the modules and fill out a satisfaction survey. Once you've completed the survey, your certificate will be sent via USPS mail.
What if I finish the program and do not get published. Do I get my money back?
If you finish the program, you should have enough skills to pursue one of many publishing options available to you, but Shanda does not guarantee you will get published just by completing the program. Publishing will come from your own efforts and quality of work. She does, however, offer a generous 14-Day Happiness Guarantee. You may try the program risk free for 14 days, and if you decide it’s not for you, Shanda will refund your money in full.

"I was hesitant to sign up for this course, having no experience writing and not sure if I could actually do it. The course is set up so well and is packed with information, along with the amazing support and guidance of Shanda, that now I am confident that I will finish my book.

Thank you Shanda, for your invaluable instruction, guidance and support, helping my dream become a reality!"
