Did you miss our June 25th call? You can listen below:
Are you looking for guidance and support to write your book or book proposal this summer?
After receiving requests for my award winning Bring Your Book to Life Program from people who needed a summer course, I invited my talented colleague Ginger Moran to teach the course and mentor participants last summer. It was a huge success.
So huge, that we’re going it again! Ginger Moran is a writing coach, Pushcart Award Nominee, author, editor, teacher at the college level and has a Ph.D. in creative writing. Though a seasoned published author herself, she took this course as a participant (to write her first nonfiction book proposal) the summer before she taught it. Ginger also shares my love of teaching. I’ve referred many happy clients to her and the feedback from last year’s course participants was stellar. In short, I am so excited to place your book ideas in Ginger’s capable hands to support you to write a compelling book. You can read a whole bunch more about Ginger’s awesome credentials at the bottom of this page!
The specifics of the program are the same as all Bring Your Book to Life offerings–so I won’t repeat the entire course information which you can find on the Bring Your Book to Life Program page. However, I’ll just point out the differences in the summer program:
Private consultation, feedback on your outline and first 30 pages: will all be with Ginger, unless otherwise specified. Ginger will answer e-mails from you if you need support with your writing or creative process. My virtual assistant Geri Lafferty who has worked with me for four years now will answer any administrative questions. Ginger will be teaching the 8 teleseminars. I will join you and Ginger for one of the calls and do some teaching on that call.
Classes will be held 7 pm on Tuesdays beginning July 9, though you are encouraged to sign up soon so that you can begin the pre-work and have your book concept consultation and feedback on your outline with Ginger well before class begins. You’ll get the award winning course materials – pre-work (binder and 1 cd) plus 8 week program written material and 8 CDs) as soon as you register for the course.
You will receive all the bonuses that come with the Bring Your Book to Life Program, listed on that page, except that the interview with a literary agent will be an audio recording of the call, rather than live.
In the teleseminars, seasoned book writing coach Ginger Moran will teach you how to structure your book, how to stay on track each week, secrets to compelling writing, how to write great anecdotes (for how to and self help books), how to master your time and much, much more. She will offer tips on how to make the most of your nonfiction book idea through structure, dialogue, blogging, and breaking through obstacles to writing and marketing your work.
Students will work in pairs and in the larger group to put these techniques into practice. Teleseminars will also offer the opportunity for laser coaching to break through a particular challenge and will receive tips and support from Ginger and the group. Everyone tends to benefit from this “laser coaching” work in addition to the person being coached.
Most importantly, class members will set goals each week that will be reviewed the following meeting, providing crucial accountability and an empowering system to complete their book or proposal in a short time.
And I plan to be on the call week 6 to share my favorite class–the one where we brainstorm how to make your books media-friendly and brand your book, you or your work. This is an especially fun, creative and productive call–and can sometimes be worth the cost of the program all on its own.
