On Demand Mini Course

This mini course is made up of short recorded lessons as well as an archive of interviews I conducted with several successful authors.

You'll need to complete the first two modules before our Outlining Workshop.

Module 1 - you and your reader

This module is designed to help you get to know your reader and connect with how you want them to feel. Doing these things at the beginning will help make the whole writing process easier for you.

Module 2 - Getting Clear on Your Topic

In this module, you'll focus your topic until you can state the main point you want to make in your book in a single, clear sentence. This is the sentence we'll use to build your outline. 


It is the single most important sentence in your book.

Module 3 - Author Interviews

For the live event that this mini course is based on, I interviewed several successful authors about how and why they wrote their books and what their books have done for their businesses.


After I get to know you and the book you're writing, I'll guide you to the interviews that will be most useful for you.

1:1 Outlining Workshop

In this workshop, we’ll start by discussing the work you did in First Steps to Your First Book. Then, we’ll outline your book and make a plan for how you’re going to find time to write it!

The workshop will take place via Zoom at a mutually convenient time, and it will last between 2 and 4 hours — the length depends on how much support you need. If you want to schedule it as two 2-hour blocks, that's fine! I know 4 hours is a long time to concentrate.

If, after the workshop, you decide you want to sign up for my full 6-month course, I’ll deduct what you’ve paid for this package from the price of the course. That way, you won’t be paying for the same material twice!

If you’ve already purchased First Steps to Your First Book, email me for a link to get just the outlining workshop – otherwise, you’ll be paying for the course again!
