Dear Aspiring Author,
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 who may be 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 that 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
.lack of time.
For example, perhaps you:
any of the above statements resonate with you, the
8-Week Book Writing
may be just the program to help you finally realize your book
writing goals and see your project through to completion!
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.
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.
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.
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.

You have to create time to write, and more importantly, you have to make your book and your goals a priority.
