Webinar: Is your idea ready to become a book?

A free class for aspiring nonfiction writers who need help clarifying & evaluating their ideas so that they can write their best book.

You want to have a positive impact on the world.

You have an idea that you want to share (and it won't leave you alone until you do).

Are you ready to write a book?

Is your idea ready to become a book?

If you’re going to commit to spending the next year (or three) writing a book, you want to make sure that not only are you ready but that your book idea is viable and worth investing the time required.

This class will help you figure that out.

You'll learn how to clarify and evaluate your idea(s) so you can make an informed decision on whether or not your idea can become a book that:

  • fulfills you as a writer,
  • impacts your readers, and
  • has a place in the market.

And if you're idea isn't quite ready to become a book, we'll talk about ways you can expand it or pivot it, so it will work.


Join me - and a group of kindred aspiring nonfiction authors - for this live online class so you can confidently decide if you’re ready to move forward and start writing.

There will be two sessions, one on May 18 at 9 am PST and one on May 19th at 5 pm PST.

In the hero’s journey, when the hero gets “the call to adventure,” at the very beginning, she has the option of moving forward or not. If she does move forward, she can complete the cycle and return transformed, as a hero, or in this case as an author.

If she doesn’t answer the call, she stays in stasis, watching others do what she dreams of doing. Have you ever read a book that you wish you'd written? Yeah, me too.

I spent 20 years of my life denying the call to write because I didn’t think I was “good enough,” (despite a Bachelor's in English and a Master's degree in Literature, and years of experience teaching writing). I am good enough. So are you.

We all have something to say, something to share that someone out there needs to hear.

Many of us refuse the call to write because we’re afraid or don't know how to get started. It’s a painful and frustrating denial of self.

Don’t do that. There's a reason you have this calling to write the book (besides the fact that it won't leave you alone).

The world needs to read it, so let's make sure your ideas are solid and your book will make the impact you dream of.

Let's get started and heed that call to write.
