You'll Love This Book If:

  • You want to refine your writing skills and renew your creativity
  • You are looking for tips and advice on how to start or finish writing your book's first draft

Are you writing a book or novel for the first time? Chances are you probably have or have had a bout of insecurity, fear of failure, or worry about making it perfect. But you don't have to let all of those feelings take hold of you and cripple your ability to write. In fact, You've Got a Book in You is filled with friendly, funny, telling-it-to-you-straight chapters that teaches you how to relinquish your worries and write freely!

When you buy this book, you'll get fun exercises such as "writing blasts", tips on brainstorming ideas, and advice about how to tackle your novel (or book) in small pieces, all geared toward helping you gain the skills and best practices needed to finish writing a novel!

In This Book You'll Learn:

  • How to tell your story
  • The three touchstones for writing your book
  • How to write what you don't know

A Word From the Author:

"This book is for you if you've got a dream to write a book and you want simple, no-nonsense help in achieving that dream.

Store shelves and the Web are crammed with books on how to write, so why this one? Because every time I meet somebody who wants to write a book but thinks it's too hard, I want to take their hand and say, "You have been sadly misinformed." And every time I meet somebody who wants to write a book but doesn't really know how, I want to take their hand and say, "I'll help you." And every time I meet somebody who's written part of a book already but feels stuck, I want to take their hand and say, "Boy, have you come to the right person!" This book is my contribution to your incredibly exciting ambition.

In an ideal world, when you found yourself doubting your dream, a guide would appear in the form of, oh, say, a big sister who has written books herself and who will show you how to write your book with zest and honesty.

Somebody who has been there, done that, loves you, and will be there for you every step of the way.

It is an ideal world.

I am that big sister.

Let’s write your book together."
