Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wanted to write a book? Have you started to write your book, but weren't able to finish it? Are you ready to become a published author?

Discover inside secrets to writing and publishing a book fast. It doesn't matter if you want to write a novel or a non-fiction book: Garrett Pierson's tools and strategies will guide you step by step.

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.

Here is what you can expect to learn while reading this book:

  • All the right ingredients to get started
  • Why you shouldn't start writing until you're ready
  • Detailed strategies for organization and self-control
  • A crash course in the basic writing process
  • Rewarding yourself by shifting your mindset
  • Clear steps to finishing your book fast and staying laser focused
  • Traditional publishing vs. self-publishing and what is right for you
  • How to become the authority in your market when your book is finished
  • Plus much more!

Don't delay! You've waited long enough. Let's get started, you'll be glad you did!

    "Surprisingly Useful"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I've gone back and listened to it again, as well.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Lots of great information"

    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!

    "The Hands-down Best Guide for Aspiring Authors"
    What did you love best about How to Write a Book ASAP?

    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.


    What other book might you compare How to Write a Book ASAP to and why?

    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.


    What does Tom Underwood bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the 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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "A very bad listen, don't waste your money"
    What would have made How to Write a Book ASAP better?

    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?


    Has How to Write a Book ASAP turned you off from other books in this genre?

    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.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, it had an ending and I now have true example of what all the other books on how to write, warned about.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a question, will books like this lead to LOTS of 2am karaoke quality books?

    "Encouragement"

    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.
