Build Your Book 

8-Week Intensive: Strategically Plan Your Book
We’ll dig in together to uncover and clarify the one story or one big idea you want to write about—and why you want to write it now.

In 8 weeks, you'll move from fuzzy to clear about:

  • Your deep WHY for writing your book
  • WHAT you have come to the page to say
  • How to position your book in the marketplace
  • A compelling title and subtitle
  • Comparable titles in your category
  • Who your ideal reader is
  • Your structure, including where your story starts and ends
  • A table of contents and an outline for drafting your manuscript or book proposal
  • Your publication path

Details: 4 written assignments + 4 editorial calls

Outcome: You'll be ready to draft your manuscript or book proposal with intention and focus.
