banner-intensiveEarly Bird Registration for the Fall 2016 8-Week Book Writing Intensive is Now Open!

In this 8-Week Book Writing Intensive, you’ll work with publisher and author coach, Shanda Trofe, to develop your story idea, brainstorm and outline your manuscript, develop your writing skills, sharpen those writing skills, build an author platform, learn about the many publishing options available and how to choose the one that’s right for you, and finally, how to launch and market your book upon publication.

You’ll also learn how to tackle the polishing and revision process with ease so you may submit your opening chapter to Shanda for feedback to ensure you are on the right track.  And, as an added bonus, those who complete the program will also have the opportunity to pitch their book proposal for a chance at publication!

Yes, you read that right…
