Course Description

How to write a book in two weeks is about how to write a NON-FICTION book in two weeks and get it published. Its a course meant for all those people out there who have 'an idea' bubbling around in their head, but yet they haven't quite got it down on paper yet, and they're just not sure where and how to start.

This course starts at the very beginning, and it guides you through the process, of how to write a book with various examples of how the lecturer herself has personally achieved this herself. This isn't a theoretical course. This is practical. It is ideal for entrepreneurs, business people, experts, self-employed, those who want to write as a career and those who just want to get one book done.

We look at your ideas, the structure of the book, overcoming challenges, publishing and completion and we also touch on marketing.

Template writing plans, book budget plan and an e-book are included.

The course will take approx 3-4 hours to complete. There's a slideshow presentation with plenty of ideas for you and no doubt if you only have one book idea now, but the time we've finished, you'll have a lot more!

Attending this course will not write the book for you! You'll be inspired but you must act on this.

The tutor is happy to discuss book ideas with you and can give you chapter feedback but is unable to read complete books sent in.
