Over the 18 years that it took me to finally publish my first novel, I’ve developed a lot of processes and strategies for getting things done, and for coping with the BS that pops up and tries to get in your way. And I wanted to share these processes, to help other writers who are struggling with writing their novels.
So I’ve created the Author Intensive: Planning and Development, a 6-week, one-on-one program where I walk you step-by-step through the process of planning and developing your story.
This is the exact process I use to plan and develop all of my stories, including SoundCheck, my debut novel. My process is based on the storytelling principles my mentor, Larry Brooks, shared in his bestselling writing book, Story Engineering.
The purpose of this program is to help you start your story off on the right foot, by figuring out how to make it work before you spend any time writing the first draft.
I know how frustrating it can be to get 25,000 words into a story and realize you don’t know where you’re going and you have no idea how to end it.
If you figure that stuff out first, you’ll be off to the races.
