Publisher's Summary

Nonfiction writers, this is a step-by-step guide that walks you through good writing routines and how to develop a solid timeline, then how to write a first draft and revise the draft, how to bring in beta readers and incorporate their feedback, and finally, how to pull it all together into a finished manuscript.

This audiobook is perfect for nonfiction authors, because I show you how to streamline your argument, how to make sure you don't have repetitions or tangents, and how to incorporate research without getting sidetracked in your writing.

I lay every piece out for you in the book and coach you through each step. No more excuses. You'll be ready to finally start writing your book.

    "Very detailed"

    Start Writing Your Book Today is the perfect book for the beginner writer to know the fundamentals of writing. I feel so much more equipped to start writing my book now that I have the basics. Thank you Morgan!

    Story
    "Great (almost perfect) instructional book."
    What did you love best about Start Writing Your Book Today?

    Very DIY oriented, to the point book, without unnecessary comments. After listening the audio version I've purchased a paper one.


    What other book might you compare Start Writing Your Book Today to and why?

    I tried many similar books: they are either too commercialized (you'll become a millioneer in a month!) or too academic..


    What did you learn from Start Writing Your Book Today that you would use in your daily life?

    The book allowed me to come with a very doable plan and also is going to be a shining example of how MY instructional book should be structured.


    Any additional comments?

    There was only one reason I didn't give five stars to this audio version: the listener is not ready for the later chapters, which would be applicable several weeks(months) later, after the writer is done with the first steps. Some kind of preface, instructing on HOW TO USE this AUDIO version would be very helpful and would eliminate some frustration of trying to digest the information you are not ready to, yet.
