WOWIE ... Our first onsite class has finished and I'm deep in the heart of the first ONLINE class this month ... Write a NonFiction Book in 4 Weeks!
Each class is kept small (never over 18 members) so that I can know each author, what his or her book is about and focus on their individual goals. What a pleasure to be in that position and what fun to watch as one by one, magic happens. The evolving Story Board tells are, creating a fantastic roadmap so that the book has guideposts for completion.
Boy-oh-boy, the first session is intense ... so much to get out, capped with the Kick-Butt Title Exercise. By the time session two pops up, the goove hits and believe it or not (better believe it), all titles are in place. Mission accomplished, it's gathering and plotting the rest of the book time.
Anita and Dennis Lunt are on their mission for their book, 10,000 Steps Straight Up. They plan to have it available for the AuthorU Holiday Christmas sale in November.
As the leader and creator of the How to Write a Non-Fiction Book in 4 Weeks, I loved the comments from several of the participants:
"Yes! Yes! Yes! I already see myself as an author--I can even feel and hold a copy of my first book. I see it hitting the market by storm."
"I enjoyed learning about how to really publish a book and about marketing."
"The reviewing and repeating of the processes as we added new steps each week was so helpful. It broke it down into manageable bites."
"I got more done in a month than I got done over an entire year."
"I really learned a lot from the first week's homework and hardcore evaluation of everyone's titles."
"Working with the story boarding, creative writing drills along with the styles of publish, marketing and all the social media strategies was invaluable."
Did anyone walk out with their book completed, edited, layed out, ready to print? No. Did anyone finish their first drafts? Yes, several did and all are working away with the tools they need to have a book in hand. Call me a happy Book Coach.
Both the onsite classes in Denver will be in September 8, 15, 22, 29 and online classes in October 6, 13, 20, 27--they will be repeated throughout the year. If you are just beginning, there is a place for you. If you have published, there is a place for you. Come join in. All information is on the website here.
