Create Your SHORT NF Book
April 1, 8, 15, 22 ONLINE
LIVE: 3 p.m. to 5.30 p.m.
Maximum Attendance: 10 aspiring authors!
WOW! how would you like to outline, structure, plan and create your NonFiction book within one month … in four short weeks? Your guide is Dr. Judith Briles, the author of 34 books. Transitioning from the typical how-to, business book ranging from 300 to 400 pages, she has mastered the creation of the less than 100-page book (that means 10,000 to 20,000 words) … the book that is in demand by book buyers today.
For NonFiction authors (and authors-to-be) … the new theme for books is that short is the new black … the business reader wants shorter books—books that can be read on a short plane ride, within two hours.
Questions to ask yourself include:
- Could your book be a series?
- What are the must-have elements?
- Did you include any “filler” material in an already published book?
- Is there anything within a current book that is more ego-driven than essential content?
- What parts are vital to your topic, work and vision?
- Are you able to let go and dump (or save for the next book).
“Yikes,” you are thinking. “This is an impossible task!” “Not so,” says Judith, “it’s actually fun and eye-opening. Is it work? Yes. Does it pay off? Yes again.”
Eliminate the Superflous Parts and Create the Best Book You Can for Your Buyer
Your books are BUSINESS. There isn’t a book out that doesn’t have some fluff—filler material that is nice to have, yet not crucial to the storyline, your expertise or solution to the underlying theme of your book. With short being the new black, brutal becomes part of your vocabulary. Brutal. The word cutting room is at your fingertips. To be successful, you’ve got to be willing and able to cut.
What you’ll have when you’re finished is a far better product than that gangly, over-wordy to me you started with. Trust me. It might just have the makings of a bestseller!
Are you ready … Judith will give you “pre-work” to start the gathering process. We will meet in Denver area at a local restaurant.
Your Commitment? 4 consecutive Wednesdays from 3.00 to 5.30 p.m. Mountain time
Where: Your Computer — we do it on ZOOM — You get a link to join in. And the recording of each session post.
Your Cost? only $297 per person
Note: space is very limited. This is an intensive interactive workshop.
Authors are talking …
This class was beyond expectation! I wrote HOAs on the Edge!
I got more done in a month than I‘ve done in the past year. I’m ready to complete editing and move to layout.
I already see myself as a well-established author. I can even feel and hold a copy of my first book. I see it hitting the market by storm.
This class kickstarted my Inner Author into gear—out of Stagnant Author.
– Francesca Starr
I’ve had a book in my head for years, but never wrote it because I didn’t know where to begin. Judith Briles solved my problem. Her class – How to Write a Book in Four Weeks – walked me through every step of the process, which enabled me to start and finish my business book during the summer of 2015. Judith’s experience, knowledge and encouragement gave me the courage I needed to put pen to paper. My book would not be going to print this fall if it wasn’t for Judith, so I highly recommend her as your guide, mentor, biggest cheerleader and book shepherd. She’s one of a kind.
Judith Briles’ class, “How to Write a Book in Four Weeks,” is truly amazing. It sounds so impossible until she shares her knowledge and tricks she has acquired after years of writing so many books on various subjects. She is not selfish in sharing her vast knowledge with her quick wit and amusing stories. Not only can Judith walk the walk but she can talk the talk, churning out highly successful books quickly. Sharing tips from helpful websites, quick ways to set up your chapters and be able to easily change them around, to great computer programs to keep your book altogether. Judith is my muse. When I Use as you wish … add, rearrange, delete, change and shift as you do so capably!
I’m in … I’ll be there on Wednesdays starting
