Having a great non-fiction book idea is one thing. Writing a book and having it accomplish what you want it to for you and your readers is another. In this 10 day course, publishing coach Azul Terronez goes through which common writing mistakes to avoid, which questions to ask yourself before you get started, and finally, how to stay motivated throughout the writing process. 

As Azul says, "writing a non-fiction book is about writing quickly, and making sure you get to the finish line before the topic is no longer relevant." Why not get started now?

What you'll learn in this course:

  • Understanding the vision, purpose, and positioning of your book
  • Writing-hacks for getting started
  • How to use Amazon reviews of similar books to enhance your own writing
  • How to organize your book to avoid writer's block
  • Tips and apps for staying productive and hitting your word-count goals
  • The importance of hooking your readers

Students can only enroll in one class at a time. If you’re currently taking a course, please wait until it has finished before signing up for a new one.

As a writer of two nonfiction books, I am absolutely not terrified about writing.
What worries me is how to build a platform on a parallel basis with my writing.
I'm talking about online presence. The special techniques that I read about drive me crazy
since I seem to be unable to apply them.
I wonder if you can give advice to a writer who is not a computer wizard.
Thank you in advance.
