There are many mind-boggling and complicated ways of writing a book at our disposal. This is not one of those. In fact, this book is perfect for someone who wants a simple, flexible, and streamlined approach to start, write, and complete a book fast. This is not a get rich quick book, nor is it a book that guarantees your success. That is up to you. I can't write your book for you.
This book is for those of us who want to write regardless of what others say about our ability to write. It is for those of us who want a step-by-step guide to the process and strategies to finishing a book. The book is specially formulated to be a tool to support your success. If you want to avoid mistakes and prevent costly pitfalls, whether those pitfalls be measured in time and/or money wasted, then this book is for you. This book is all about achieving real and practical writing results.
You will only become a writer/author through the act of writing. This is your golden opportunity to stop talking about writing a book and actually do it. Only when your book is finished will you truly understand the authority and respect authorship demands and how the title of "author" can open up new channels of achievement and profit. You might find this book to be somewhat unconventional. There may be established writers who disagree with my writing style.
That is to be expected since I do not come from the traditional writing world. You will soon learn my story and though I was an overall good student, I was a terrible English student. I know this might sound cliché, but if I can become an established writer, anyone can! More than most people, I understand your concerns, anxieties and questions when it comes to writing. I've been where you are and know how to overcome the roadblocks you undoubtedly will encounter.
That's why I wrote this book. To help guide you towards the finish line so that you can proudly hold your own book in your hands.

Yes. I've gone back and listened to it again, as well.
I am a professional writer of nonfiction, and have been thinking about writing a book, so this book was part of my research. I have to admit that I had a bit of an arrogant attitude going in... I wasn't convinced that the author could tell me something that I didn't already know. Turns out, he could. There is a lot of very basic information that I think beginning writers would benefit from. But I found that his advice on organizing and planning a book -- such as writing a core outline first, so that you have a definite handle on what your book is about and how you're going to write it -- rang true with me. In criticism, I would say that the author repeats himself occasionally throughout the book. But, then, maybe a beginning writer would benefit from the repetition. Finally, I liked the way he encouraged non-writers to try their hand at the craft, with helpful tips on how to get started. The author definitely has a positive attitude!
The advice in this book was right on the money.
The various case studies were a great way to take the abstract and make it concrete.
Anyone who wants to be inspired to write a book should listen to this one. By the time your done listening you'll be ready to write.
If you are wanting to write that novel you've been meaning to your whole life, this is a great place to start. Lots of information and a way to plan out your prose. If you need a great starter kit, this is it.
Narration is also excellent!
in other words this book gives you a tool box and tells you how to use it. very good nuts and bolts.
This book takes you through the process from start to finish, with excellent direction and practical advice. It filled in so many gaps that I missed when I self-published my first book. When writing a book, in my opinion, there comes a time when the book seems to take on its own life. How to Write a Book ASAP will help you recognize, deal with and appreciate that feeling when your book reaches that critical stage. It is an incredible part of the process.
I have not seen another source that is this inclusive to comapre it to. This audiobook stands alone with straight to the point step by step processes that takes so much of the stress out of planning and executing writing a book.
He is able to keep your attention with intonations and well spoken english. I drive a great deal, so the audio version was my best option.
I have found this book extremely inspiring to get moving. What I really like is the planning processes that it spells out. This has helped me organize and layout my project with clearer focus, providing much more opportunity for creativity and less operational mind clutter.
I will recommend this book/audio recording to anyone endeavoring to write a book that I speak with. This will be the best (and hopefully first) investment you will make in not only your book, but in yourself.
I'm shocked by the good reviews, but maybe this book is their first on the subject. The author admits this is his 3rd book. His first 2 books you never heard of because they have sold few copies, check their poor sales rank on Amazon. This book is filled with amateur writing errors and then he plugs his high priced courses on "writing" constantly. Ever watch American Idol? Would you pay to learn how to sing from a karaoke singer?
It hasn't, I read enough books to know there is always good and bad work, especially now that there is "self publishing", but self publishing and places like CreateSpace, KDL and Audible good for the business overall. Buyers just need to be more careful now.
Hard to tell, he was dealt a bad hand (the book is littered with cliches too). For instance "your book" was said about a thousand times. It seemed it was in every paragraph and sometimes in 3 or 4 sentences in a row. If you combined a drinking game with the phrase you wouldn't get past the first few pages.
Yes, it had an ending and I now have true example of what all the other books on how to write, warned about.
Just a question, will books like this lead to LOTS of 2am karaoke quality books?
directional, delicious and do-able
The author, he shares what he learned from experience.
Telling about the functions of the brain as you prepare to write a story.
All of it, and the research suggestions and how to basics of getting started and to expect rejection but persevere .
I love his explanation of the right side (creative) and the left side (critique) of the brain and how it works to put words into a story for who and what purpose. Well done, there is definable directions for any mind set. Thank you
great walk through of the emotional challenges that need to be conquered before writing a book. It has great advice and talks a lot about why you should write a book. This is an invaluable part of my library. Tarik
If you want to write a book of any kind this is a great book to guide you.
There is no fluff and filler here only great teaching and direction. It is a short listen which is good because you can listen over and over and make notes or simply commit the process of writing a book to memory.
This book is more about the process of writing and how to get your book written instead of just dreaming about doing it.
