An 8-Module 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. As an author coach, 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 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, this 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 course, 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 program, and since this is a self-study course, you get access to all the modules, lessons and bonuses upon enrollment ... so you can get started TODAY!

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!

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.

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