FINALLY Write a Book Workshop

Attention Aspiring Authors!

Have you always dreamed of seeing your name on the cover of a book?

Are you looking for personal guidance and a step-by-step program that can get you there?

Then you’ve come to the right place!

Announcing: the FINALLY Write Your Book Workshop, a totally new program from The Writer’s Sherpa that will guide aspiring authors through the book planning, writing, and revising process. This eight-week interactive program will guide you on your path to becoming an author.

How can this program help you?

  • If you’ve always dreamed of sharing your story and seeing your name on the cover of your book, this program will give you the motivation, insight, and support you need to make that dream a reality.
  • If you’re afraid your writing skills aren’t good enough to write a book, this program will give you hundreds of writing tips and strategies to improve your work, PLUS individual feedback on your work.
  • If you’re a consultant or business leader ready to climb to the next level of your career—including higher fee income, media attention, and clients clamoring to work with you—this program can show you how to get there.
  • If you’re excited by the possibility of creating additional income streams by putting your message in a book, this program can help you organize your material and translate it seamlessly onto the page.
  • If you started writing your book in the past and stalled without any clue where to go next, this program can help you diagnose the problem and pick up where you left off.
  • If you have a great idea, but you have no idea where to start, this program will show you the shortest and easiest path to finishing your book.
  • If you know you need a book to build your business, but you’re not sure if your ideas are good enough, this program will help you pinpoint a market need, develop a concept that will deliver exactly what readers want, and succeed in writing it.
  • And if you’re overwhelmed by the scope and size of your book project, don’t worry! This program will show you how to break the job into small, manageable pieces that even the most inexperienced writer can handle.

What does the FINALLY Write Your Book Workshop include? Everything you need…

1. Every week you will receive a package of handouts in your e-mail. You can use these during the phone call sessions to follow along, and keep them handy as you’re writing.

2. Starting February 12, the group calls will take place every Thursday at 8 p.m. EST. We’ll meet for eight one-hour sessions to discuss the following topics:

  • Week #1: Lay the foundation of passion, motivation, and purpose that will help you write your book successfully by asking yourself three critical questions every author needs to consider before writing a book.
  • Week #2: Learn a time-tested strategy for thinking about your book like a business, targeting your market, message, and approach. Plus learn a time management strategy that will help you write your book faster than you ever imagined possible.
  • Week #3: I’ll reveal the #1 SECRET to writing a book that hooks readers instantly—your readers won’t be able to put your book down. And get over 30 tips to improve your writing skills—fast! You’ll be amazed at how your writing will dramatically improve after applying these strategies.
  • Week #4: Learn simple organization strategies that will help you write faster—no more searching through stacks of random research materials. And no more frustration trying to find what you need!
  • Week #5: Get the research secrets professionals use to find the exact information you need to write your book—quickly and easily!
  • Week #6: Learn 8 strategies that you can use to beat writer’s block forever!
  • Week #7: Discover a self-editing strategy that will help you think about your own work objectively. Feel more confident about your writing!
  • Week #8: Learn how to put the finishing touches on your manuscript and as your draft is complete, plot a path for taking the next steps on your journey to become a published author!

3. The workshop also includes three 20-minute private coaching sessions with me. We’ll arrange a time for the call and talk about how your work is progressing and what specific strategies you can use to improve your writing.

4. I’ll also provide you with an in-depth critique of 30 pages of your manuscript. I’ll look for ways to improve your work and develop your material, and give you suggestions in writing.

5. You’ll get links to download the audio recordings of all the workshop sessions, so you can put them on your iPod and listen to them over and over again. You’ll have the tools to write your first book, and many books in the future!

6. You’ll get access to my members-only resource pages, packed with writing, publishing, and marketing information. Almost everything you need to make your book a success, you can find it on these pages.

Here's what people say about my book-writing programs...

"I think your writing lessons are great! They truly guide the writer through the entire process from start to finish-from the book plan and defining your topic all the way through the finished product. Your lessons start by helping the individual get clear, give direction and continue to keep them on track while they write. I think that as long as the writer is committed he or she would be able to finish their book using your lessons."  -- Sheila Hawkins, “The Personal Productivity Pro,” www.thirdeyegroup.com

 "Melinda's FINALLY Write Your Book Program is just the best! She combines practical guidance, encouragement, accountability and coaching in a manner that is user-friendly and easy to understand, and she has created the assignments so they are practical and relevant. This is a course that will help you make writing that book a true reality in your life!"  -- Teresa Gilbert, M.S. Ed., Professional Certified Coach, www.leaderschampion.com

"Dear Melinda, I would like to express my excitement in joining your program on writing my book. I am not only writing a little in every moment I found free, thanks to you. I found the course so motivating it has gotten a lifelong dream looking like reality. I cannot thank you enough."  -- Mark Augusty

"Melinda, Thank you for your FINALLY Write Your Book Program! You accomplished the impossible with me. I started my career with jotting down some key points and gave them to my secretary. Remember them? I was amazed how she was able to make me look intelligent with her writing skills. Honestly, I have been afraid to write anything so writing a book was unthinkable. Your course has taken the fear away and I actually look forward to putting time into writing now versus looking for excuses to postpone the chore. Congratulations on helping me turn my ideas and fears into productive communication!  I highly recommend FINALLY Write Your Book Program to anyone! If I can enjoy writing now, believe me, anyone can enjoy it through your program." -- Bill Moore
