You've got an idea for a book, but don't know where to start?

You know what you want to write about. You know that it needs to happen. But you don't budge. Why? My guess is that you feel overwhelmed about the process, and that is stopping you from moving forward.

So let's break it down into smaller, easier steps.

The first place to start is an outline. For fiction and nonfiction, print or ebooks.

I've got you!

More importantly, YOU'VE got this!

Imagine how great you will feel when your ideas are organized and you can start tackling the project in much smaller chunks. 

Now look forward even further and imagine that book SELLING on AMAZON.

Let me help you get there.

Join me for a one-hour training in which you'll complete your basic outline for your book. Fiction, nonfiction, ebook, or print, I'll walk you through the steps you need to take to get a jump-start on writing your book.

Don't let the overwhelm of writing a book stop you.

If you break it down into easy, bite-sized chunks, you'll find it's not so scary after all!

Worried you don't have TIME to write that book?

Let me give you some tips to make it seem less daunting. You CAN do this!

What's included in the training?

For just $27, you'll leave the training with:

  • Guided instruction on writing your outline
  • YOU WILL complete your basic outline within the hour
  • Next steps to move beyond the outline
  • Some great resources to help you as you write your book
  • Q&A - got questions? Email them to me and I'm happy to answer!
  • Sample fiction and non-fiction outlines to work from


Sound good?

If you need someone to walk you through the process, hold you accountable, and ensure you actually complete the outline, this is the perfect training for you.

I’ll provide some action steps and answer the “what to do next”. You’ll be armed with the tools you need to move forward.

I outlined my first book and was hopelessly off the outline 5000 words in because the creative flow just went somewhere the left brain outline hadn't invented. So I thought outlining was not for me. But Alexa's idea of outlining is more organic, more creative, continually changing. Beginning with the mind map makes this outlining a very different thing than simply digging in to articulated chapter after chapter.

Thanks for this course, it was great! As an original pantser of NaNoWrimo (National Novel Writing Month), I came to realize how important an outline is. There is plenty of information on outlining out there on the WWW, however, this mini-course actually makes you work by getting you to create an outline while observing the video - no procrastination allowed! I now have another outline for my non-fiction book, and I was surprised to find more topics came up as I brainstormed a second time (I started an outline last year and put it aside to work on my novel). My passion has been reignited. So ... thank you Alexa!
