I went from a vague idea of a book I wanted to write to having my first
chapter complete, my book description written, and my author biography
written in just 14 days! I didn't really
think it was possible, but it felt easy with your encouragement, tips,
and easy to use templates. Your course was so well organized, that I
never felt lost or overwhelmed. From the bottom of my heart, thank you
for sharing this course with me and motivating me through it."
