Write Your Book: Start Strong and Get it Done

Create a strategic plan to help you realize your book-writing dreams. 

This is a 6-hour class recorded live in the CreativeLive studio in San Francisco, but it will take you longer than that to complete the exercises. There's with a 30-page workbook that walks you through everything you need to do to start a novel or memoir. Click HERE for details and to purchase course. Normally priced at $129, there are often specials for $99 and even lower.

You can sign up for coaching on your class workbook through Creative Live, or come directly to Author Accelerator and join our 6-month Manuscript Accelerator program. This would not only give you feedback on your course workbook, it would give you coaching to complete your entire rough draft. We'll make sure you finish -- and finish strong.


Short Courses at Creative Live

These are 90 minute courses recorded during Writing Week in 2018. They are normally priced at $39.

The Writer's Guide to Agony and Defeat


Being a writer is about being persistent. You may call it having grit, or refusing to give up in the face of rejection, or just being plain old stubborn, but every writer has it. My book about the 43 worst moments in the writing life puts you face-to-face with the worst things so that you can feel less alone, shake off the pain, and keep writing.
