I’m guessing you want to write a self-help book or how-to book that transforms people’s lives.
Maybe you’ve been picturing yourself out on your deck, in a hammock, on the beach or in your yard with a lemonade or iced tea or—my favorite—gingerberry kombucha.
You can see yourself writing away in your spiral notebook. It’s almost like taking dictation, the way those words just flow from your favorite pen. Or maybe you’re on an ipad or laptop. That works, too.
It’s your fantasy, after all. And I’ll let you fill in the blanks—where you are, how it feels, what inspires you. In fact, you may want to take a little time for that fantasy when you finish reading this post.
However, before we go into dreamland, I’d also like to give you some solid advice to help you get that self-help or how-to book written this summer.
This summer! Imagine that.
Here are 5 steps I know will help you turn that fantasy into reality:
Get in touch with your vision: If you downloaded my free Inspired Author Support Kit, you have some guidance on creating a vision statement. Read your vision statement at least once a day. And if you don’t have one yet, you can get the Inspired Author Support Kit here.
Make it fun: Think about how you can luxuriate in your book writing endeavor. Can you write out in nature? In a favorite spot? Can you create a little ritual around writing? Buy a new journal? Wear special clothing? By making it fun and playful, you’ll want to keep coming back to it. Plus you’ll start off in a great mood.
Is this you?
If so, I have a special opportunity to offer you this summer that will hit your sweet spot. It’s a self-paced program to write your self-help or how-to book. And I’m adding a few extras—at no extra cost—to sweeten the pot and help ensure that you get valuable individual, professional input from the beginning.
Ready? It’s time for Steps 4 and 5: Commitment and Guidance!
I’m offering a special version of my Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks Program (and, yes, you can speed that up to 4 weeks or relax the schedule to make it 10 or 12 or even more—whatever works best for you. It truly is self-paced).
This offer is only available to my blog readers and newsletter subscribers (that’s you!).
You can read all about it in a minute, but I want to be sure I tell you what special bonuses I’m providing this summer when you sign up July 18.

This is the first time I am offering all these extras together with Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks, but I wanted to make sure I give you the guidance and support to make your book writing adventure a success this summer.
I want you to end the summer having written a first draft of a truly wonderful self-help or how-to book.
