ARE YOU READY FOR THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE OF YOUR WRITING LIFE?
A year ago I had an idea for a book I wanted to write—it was a book about how to create a habit of writing for at least 15 minutes a day and how I created that habit in my own writing life and sustained it over weeks, months and years.
I just truly felt like this book needed to be out in the world for writers and entrepreneurs to read and take action on!!
Problem was, I kept procrastinating on it. Kept putting it off and acting like it didn’t really matter.
But the book idea wouldn’t let go. It followed me everywhere. It was always in my face, telling me that I needed to write it.
So one night I was hanging out at my husband’s band room when I had a thought—what if I just write the damn book right now, and then publish it later this week?
I opened my MacBook and started typing away. I already had an outline that I’d made a month prior, so doing the writing was a cinch. I just had to follow the outline and put words on the page.
And that’s exactly what I did. I spent the next couple hours writing the draft of my book, The 15-Minute Writer.
I was ecstatic about how fast the draft came together once I finally just made myself sit down and freaking write it. Over the next few days, I went back through the draft and revised it.
Then I sent it off to my editor for a fast-turn around. Meanwhile I created the eBook cover and hired a formatter to do the layout once the book was back from my editor.
My editor sent the book back in 2 days. I made her changes and a few days later the book was live on Amazon.
When I looked back at the journey to getting The 15-Minute Writer written and published I discovered something crazy: I did the entire process from idea to published eBook in only 10 days.
The truth is, it doesn’t have to take a year, six months or even a month to write and publish the nonfiction eBook you’ve been wanting to write and publish. It can happen much, much faster than that.
You just have to SHORTEN YOUR TIMELINE.
Because 10 days is long enough to make it happen and short enough to light a fire under your ass and keep you from being in your head too much. (Too much time causes you to lose momentum.)
That's why I took my 10-day process and created…
Write and Publish Your Nonfiction eBook in 10 Days
This workshop will take you from idea to self-published book on Amazon Kindle in only 10 days.
Think of it like the nonfiction version of NaNoWriMo--but on steroids.
This isn’t any old workshop. You won’t be sitting around watching trainings on how to write and publish an eBook. HELL NO!
You’ll be taking action EVERY SINGLE DAY for 10 DAYS, until you’re finished writing and publishing your eBook. And I’m walking you step-by-step through the entire process of writing and publishing an eBook.
Outlining Your eBook
Having a good outline of the book you want to write before you write it is a MUST. (otherwise you’ll never get it all done in 10 days). I’m showing you how to make outlining simple and fun.
Writing Your eBook
Now that you have your outline, you’ll actually sit down and put words on the page, using your outline as a guide. And since you have an outline to work from, you never have to worry about staring at a blank page, wondering what to write, because your outline tells you what to write.
Hiring An Editor and/or Formatter and/or Cover Designer
You always want to treat your book as professionally as you would if it was being published by a traditional publisher. Which means hiring an editor and possibly a cover designer and formatter too. I’ve pulled together all the contacts and resources you need to hire a fast-turn around editor (and formatter and cover designer), to get your book into professional shape fast.
Formatting Your eBook and Designing A Cover
In case you don’t want to hire someone to do your formatting and cover design (I will still always recommend you hire an editor, no matter what!!), I’m showing you how to format your eBook yourself and design your own cover with ease.
Publishing to Amazon
One of the biggest things that stops writers from hitting “publish” is not understanding how to actually upload their book to Amazon. But as it turns out, it’s super freaking easy!
I’m showing you exactly how to upload your book to the Kindle Direct Publishing site, so your new eBook will be available on Amazon.
AND BEST OF ALL…
The process you'll learn in this workshop is repeatable, so you can use over and over again to outline, write and self-publish all of your nonfiction eBooks (I don't recommend using this process with a novel).
Who This Workshop Is For
I created this workshop for multi-passionate writers and entrepreneurs who want to get a nonfiction eBook written and published NOW.
This workshop is for action-takers. It’s for writers and entrepreneurs who want guidance, accountability and group support to get their eBook written and published.
It’s for writers and entrepreneurs who have felt overwhelmed by the idea of writing and publishing a book, and want a simple, step-by-step process that removes the overwhelm so you can build your eBook from idea to published on Amazon.
What You Get With This Workshop
Upon signing up you'll receive access to the workshop pre-work and private Facebook group.
The 10 days of writing and publishing officially starts on March 26, and there is a week to do the pre-work and a week of follow-up support after the 10 days ends. (See workshop schedule below.)
This workshop comes with:
> Daily checklists so you know exactly what to do every single day
> Training on how to outline your eBook so you can write your first draft faster and more effectively
> Guided MP3s that talk you through the most detailed parts of the process, including the most important things to be thinking about or to consider at each step along the way
> Contacts and resources for fast-turnaround editors, cover designers, formatters and more—so you don't have to waste time researching your options.
> Video walk-throughs to show you how to format your eBook, create a kick-ass cover and how to upload and publish on Amazon
> Access to Author and Book Coach, Jennifer Blanchard--so you can ask questions, get feedback and have support along the way
> A private Facebook group so you can connect with Jennifer Blanchard and the other students in the workshop on your 10-day journey (+ lifetime access to the group)
> Lifetime course access and updates—anytime I run this workshop live you can participate (if you want to) or anytime I make updates to the content, you get to them emailed to you.
I’ve run this workshop live three times and every time more than half of the students who signed up wrote and published their eBooks (you can read testimonials from some of them below). This happens because breaking things down into step-by-step pieces removes the overwhelm and motivates you to take action, and the shortened time period forces you to get out of your head and leaves no space for doubt.
I know that if you follow along with this self-paced eCourse and do the work, you WILL end up with a published eBook on Amazon.
Here's the schedule for the workshop:
March 19 to March 25: Pre-work--Outlining your eBook and prepping to write starting March 26.
March 26 to April 4: The 10 Days--Writing and publishing your eBook
April 5 to April 15: Finish Up Support--An additional week and a half of support and guidance as you finish your eBook, publish it and get it out into the world.
'Cause you know how much I love to give a little something extra!
> FAST ACTION BONUS--the first 10 people who sign up will be able to send Jennifer their eBook outline (via email) to review and get detailed notes and feedback on (a $297 value)
> Sell More Books Masterclass (a $97 value)--the recording from this two-and-a-half-hour masterclass will show you everything you need to know to find your ideal readers and sell your books.
