Have your book ready by Labor Day.
Stop making excuses about why your book isn’t done.
This is how my first book started out. It was a hand-written devotional that I was planning to teach for a Bible class. It was filled with terrible handwriting and bad grammar, but I knew what I wanted to say. Putting it on paper got the thoughts out of my head so that I could refine them. That was around 1998.
Fast forward to 2008. I was searching on the internet for a book. I found the book on a site called Lulu.com. Once I placed the order, I received a confirmation screen that indicated that my book would be shipped as soon as it was printed. Printed? I looked at the copyright date which showed that the book was several years old. This was NOT a new book. Why would it need to be printed?
That day I discovered something that would forever change my life, On-demand printing. I always wanted to publish a book but in 1998, there was no such thing as self-publishing. Even by 2001, the cost to have a vanity publisher produce a book started at $5000. However, I was able to publish my first book in 2009 for the whopping cost of $35, which was the cost of 3 proof books I ordered to make sure that “it was real.”
Since then, I have written 3 other books and the publishing company that I helped to start has published over 19 authors with close to 40 books. I have helped many aspiring writers publish their books and start their own publishing companies. But it started with one thing, THAT FIRST BOOK.
Has “write a book” been on your goal or resolution list for years but you just haven’t been able to start or complete the task?
If you have wanted to write a book but you have not been able to start writing, or you have started but never finished, you are not alone. Many people have a desire to write and some even start writing. However, they don’t have the resources, knowledge or encouragement to finish.
But here is the really sad part of all of this. Someone could be waiting to hear your story. Whatever it is that you have been inspired to write, whether it is your life story, a non-fiction inspirational or instructional book or a great novel, someone needs to hear it. How do I know that? Because I don’t believe that you would be inspired to write it if someone didn’t need it.
Are you sitting on information that could change someone’s life? You don’t have to any longer. Allow me to help you write your book.

Deciding Your Topic
We will spend the first week getting clear on your topic. Are you going to write a fiction or non-fiction book? What will be your subject? By the end of this week, you should have a working title and subtitle.
Researching Your Topic
Now that you have decided your topic, it’s time to do some research. During this phase you not only research information for your book, but I will show you my super clever way of finding out EXACTLY what your target market is looking for in your book.
Deciding Your Hook/Outlining Your Book
During this week we will help you decide what your hook will be and I will show you how to craft a book outline that will practically write itself.
Writing the Rough Draft
Now the fun begins. Over the next 4 weeks I will show you how to easily write the rough draft of your book using 15-30 minutes blocks of time. No need to spend hours and hours crafting your book.
Producing Your Second Draft
Congrats, your rough draft is written. During this segment, I will show tips and tricks for editing your rough draft and producing a great second draft.

What You Will Need
I am confident that you can do this. However, you MUST have the following in order to be successful with this boot camp:
- Time: If you are SERIOUS about completing your book, it’s only going to take about 5 hours a week. You set your own schedule but you must put the time in to learn and write. I suggest that you spend 60 minutes a day for 3 weekdays and 2 hours on either Saturday or Sunday. Remember, the book will NOT write itself.
- A Determination to Get This Done: While I can offer you my wisdom, motivation and encouragement, I cannot make you do the work. Things may come up while you are taking this class. That is life. You must have a determination to finish this task.
