They, like you, had the desire, but they also had a lot of self-doubt and uncertainty about the process.Once I was able to give them a roadmap, some expert advice and a step-by-step system for writing their book, many of these authors not only finished and published their books, they leveraged them into a multitude of new career opportunities. From big promotions to 6-figure business deals, to invitations to travel and speak to audiences all over the world, to gaining access to top-level experts, to launching a whole new career.

And you can do the same.

Because now, with “Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks,” you have full access to the same revolutionary book-writing system, expert advice and industry secrets I share with my private clients.

Juicy, Joyful Life

My Book Became a Bestseller

When I envisioned birthing my first book,A Juicy, Joyful Life”, to the world, I knew exactly who its midwife would be—award-winning Book Coach Lisa Tener. As Publisher of Aspire Magazine, I had invited Lisa to serve my audience and speak at all of my live and virtual events since 2006 and I witnessed first-hand her level of expertise and attention to detail.

“In 2009, I took Lisa Tener’s Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks program and the materials were instrumental in helping me clarify, organize and develop my book. Within hours of its release A Juicy, Joyful Life hit #1 on multiple best-seller lists and brought 41 visionary women to bestseller status.

“Today, my heart-centered boutique publishing company has served over 180 visionary female authors and released six bestselling books written by women and for women, and it all began by taking that first step with Lisa Tener. Stop putting your dream of being an author on hold… Work with Lisa today.

~Linda Joy, author of A Juicy, Joyful Life

lisa-tenerThe idea for Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks came to me after years of teaching my award-winning book writing program, Bring Your Book to Life®. I was walking along a cliff near the ocean, wondering how I could create a program that offered the same benefits and results as Bring Your Book to Life® but with more flexibility and freedom so aspiring authors all over the world could write and finish their book in their own way and in their own time. As I looked out onto the ocean, I saw a lone surfer ride a perfect wave by circling up to the apex, down the side and into the center and over again. That’s when the answer came to me. I could “circle back,” collect and organize everything I know into a do-it-yourself home study program… one that provides the same how-to steps, inspiration and guidance I offer in my live classes and private coaching sessions.Thus, Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks was born.

And the results have been amazing.

Sherry Ways

“I’m Now a Published Author Living My Dreams”

“I’d never written a book before. I wasn’t sure how. I needed guidance.

Lisa Tener’s Inspiration to Author self-study program was perfect for me. It helped me clarify my market and organize the book—two critical issues—among many other things. I wrote my book, Feel Good Spaces: A Guide to Decorating Your Home for the Body, Mind and Spirit because I wanted to help people who were stressed or depressed create beautiful environments that transport them from the daily grind. I also wanted the book to open doors to speaking and provide more recognition in my field.

I get many compliments on Feel Good Spaces, and because of what I learned from Lisa, my book was mentioned in both Parade Magazine and Essence, and The Washington Examiner did a piece on it, too. Thanks, Lisa, for a great program. I am now a published author, fulfilling the very dreams I put forth.”

~Sherry Ways, author of Feel Good Spaces

Stuck with Mr. Wrong

The Springboard to a Whole New Career

“My dream has always been to be a professional speaker and writer. I doubt I ever would have gotten my book written without Lisa’s class. I’d still be thinking it was an activity for ‘real’ authors, and hoping to do it ‘some day.’ Lisa’s program was the springboard to my new career! I just published my book and have already been on TV!”

~Amy O’Brien, author of Stuck with Mr. Wrong (2010)

Karen Packwood

Okay, this may sound a bit over the top. But I’m speaking from experience here. So many of my clients have been able to create a life and career changes beyond their wildest dreams… because of their book.

“Lisa, I’m going on a Mayan Cruise—and getting paid for it!” ~Pat Hastings

Let me tell you about my client, Pat.

When Pat first came to me, she felt completely overwhelmed. She’d never written a book before and wasn’t quite sure how to tell her story. Plus, she didn’t think she was a good writer.

But after working with me and the strategies I’m going to give you in this program, Pat not only wrote and published her book, Simply a Woman of Faith, she started being invited to lead workshops and retreats all over the world!

She now receives generous speaking fees plus all expenses-paid trips to Bermuda and cruises, including a Mayan cruise. And now she lives in Hawaii and teaches workshops there—another result of her book.

But get this! Less than a year after Pat’s book was published, she retired from her day job as a substance abuse counselor and began working full time at her dream job as spiritual coach, retreat leader and radio host (where she interviewed famous authors on her show—like Bernie Siegel).

This and more is possible for you!

And Just In Case This Isn’t Already Clear…

Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks is not a fill-in-the-blank, one-size-fits-all template that you can whip out in a weekend.

No, this program is designed to help you conceptualize, organize and write your one-of-a-kind, true-to-you book – the book only you can write. And while you could finish your first draft within 8-12 weeks, this program allows you to write and finish your book in your own time, at your own pace.

No matter how busy you are or how demanding your life may be, you can still write, edit and finish your book.

“Publishers Expressed Interest Right Away”

“Before Lisa’s self-study course, I was feeling overwhelmed. I didn’t know what I should include or what to focus on. But Lisa’s approachable tone, easy-to-follow system and exercises got me focused and made the project do-able. It helped me pare down the amount of information I had and make it more accessible. I also got so much clearer on who my target audience is, as well as the overall tone, style, and “flavor” I was trying to create.
The workbook helped me write 3 different book proposals in just a matter of weeks, in preparation for Harvard Medical School’s CME publishing course. Because I had such clarity about each book, I was able to pitch my books to publishers, and they expressed interest right away.”

~Nicole Vidalakis

“For the first time, I know HOW to write this book.”

“I received the Inspiration to Author 8-week program in the mail this week. I’ve already begun using it, and it is wonderful! For the first time, I know HOW to write this book. I absolutely love the template in Week 1.”

~Christine Stroble

Kim Seidel“I wrote my book in 8 weeks!”

Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks was amazing! It worked and then some! The process kept me immersed in writing my book and motivated to finish.
I finished my first draft in 8 weeks and now I’m working on my book proposal. Then, I want to write two more guides using the Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks process.

6-Figure Contract with Scribner

“Meeting Lisa Tener at Harvard Medical School’s publishing course changed my life – I landed a 6-figure book deal with Scribner. Lisa has an ability to bring out your creativity and at the same time she understands the business end of book writing and publishing.”

~Carrie Barron, MD, co-author with Alton Barron, MD of The Creativity Cure

The Sky is Green and the Grass is Blue

“My Book Won 4 National Book Awards”

“Lisa’s book writing coaching helped make my dream come true. I’ve won four national book awards, and I launched my own teleseminars, a speaking career, and a radio show (The Best People We Know), which is in the top 1% and 2% in popularity in self-help.”

~Deb Scott, author of The Sky is Green and the Grass is Blue

With Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks, your book-writing journey gets to be as exciting, transformative and rewarding as that life-changing moment when you finally hold your finished book in your hand.

“Okay… I Can’t Wait! How Much Does Inspiration to Author Cost?”

>The complete Inspiration to Author program is $1297.

If you already have the Quick Start to Kick Start Your Book program, your investment in Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks is only $1197.

Oh, but that’s not all!

“This sounds great, but… I’m still not sure I can afford it.”


Because when you consider all the ways your finished book will bring you more income and new money-making opportunities, this investment is, well… tiny.

Unless you’re planning on writing your book and then sticking it in a drawer.

But if you’re writing your book so you can get your message out into the world and attract new clients, raise your prices (and your credibility), expand your reach or even launch a new career path, then the price of this program is a drop in the bucket.

The truth is… your Investment in Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks can pay off a hundred times over… and over and over again… in new clients, new opportunities, new relationships, or perhaps a whole new career and lifestyle.

How do I know? Because I’ve seen it happen time and time again with my clients.

Evana Maggiore

For instance, my client Evana Maggiore made thousands of dollars whenever someone bought her book, Fashion Feng Shui: The Power of Dressing with Intention. Because after they read it, they couldn’t wait to sign up for her high-end training program. Her book was her secret super-powered sales force.

Many of the new authors I’ve coached have been shocked by how quickly they were able to attract higher paying clients, land 5 or even 6-figure business deals, become best-selling authors on Amazon and launch the business they’ve always wanted.

So, whether you want to attract higher paying clients, book more speaking gigs, become well-known as an expert in your field or create a whole new career and a brand new lifestyle, Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks will give you the right guidance, industry secrets, writing and editing skills and promotional know-how to make it happen.

“Okay, that makes sense.
But I’m still not sure I have time to write a book.”

Chair FieldOh, I know it feels that way.
Your life is already jam-packed with responsibilities. But as a book coach, I’ve helped the busiest people find time in their schedule to write their book without adding more stress and pressure. In Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks, I show you how to find “lost” time to spend on your book. And with the productivity enhancing tools I give you, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you can write and complete your book… even if you only have a few hours a week.

“But what if I’m not a good enough writer?”

looking out windowYou may not know this, but many self-professed “non-writers” often write bestsellers. Why? Because like you, they had something valuable to say. And that’s what matters. And once your book is written, you can hire a great editor to polish it—I can even recommend someone terrific.

Besides, I’m going to teach you simple yet super-effective techniques for writing in a compelling, entertaining way so you can be sure your writing is high quality. Just today, a client told me that all of her business writing — her newsletters, blog posts, fundraising letters and daily correspondence — is ten times better and more effective because of what she learned about writing in Inspiration to Author. As a result, she’s boosting her business bottom line as she works on her book (which is just a few chapters away from being done).

Don’t let lack of experience prevent you from achieving your dream of becoming a published author.

“Yeah, but I’m not sure if this is the right time for me.”

Book on HeadThere will always be plenty of reasons to put off writing your book. There will always be something you “must do” before you start. Or finish. And if you keep telling yourself that, then your book will never get written. How long have you been telling yourself, “I just have to do this one project and then I’ll be ready”?
You’re ready now. And with Inspiration to Author in 8 Weeks, you can write your book at your own pace, in your own time… and in your own way. No matter how many must-do, top priority projects are currently on your list.

Maureen Hancock

Sold 15,000 Books in the First Month

“I kept putting my hopes of writing a book on hold, because I felt I couldn’t do it. Lisa’s soft nudges and inspirational energy make me feel nurtured yet expertly guided. She helped me find my voice and enjoy writing, despite being a novice.

“Even with little free time on my part, Lisa has helped me to breathe life into the writing and gave it a life of its own. I achieved more with Lisa in two months than in 5 years of attempting to do this myself.

“Lisa helped me with my book proposal and chapters and I signed with a major publisher. We sold 15,000 books in the first month. Thanks, Lisa.”

One Last Thing…

In my many years of helping authors write, edit and publish their books, I’ve seen this happen time and time again. So I feel I need to warn you.

Writing your book can change your life, your career and your business in many wonderful ways. And it can also change you.

As you tap into your own voice, clarify your message and express yourself clearly and honestly, from the inside out, you will become more confident and certain of what you know and what you believe.

Your confidence, inner knowing and self-realization will infuse every aspect of your life, not just your writing or your business. You will become more of who you are, and you’ll be more at ease expressing yourself and what you know to be true.

Writing a book is a journey of self-discovery, self-actualization and personal empowerment. So… take your vitamins, and get ready. You’re about to experience something extraordinary.

Here’s to your transformation and success as a published author!

Lisa Tener, Award winning book coach and published author

P.S. While I may not know what your main motivation is when it comes to writing your book, I do know this. You’ll never regret writing it. But chances are very good that you will regret not writing it. So, let’s get you writing your book now.
