Now in paperback, here’s a guide to writing a full-length transformational nonfiction book, from an editor with two decades’ experience working in publishing.

I know I have a book in me. I’ve always wanted to be an author. People always ask me when I’m going to write my book. I have a story to tell, but I never seem to make time to write.
Are you a thought leader, healer, or change-agent stuck at the starting line of book publication? Life coach and publishing industry insider Kelly Notaras offers a clear, step-by-step path for turning your transformational idea or story into a finished book as quickly as possible. With humor, encouragement, and common sense, she demystifies the publishing process so you can get started, keep writing, and successfully get your wisdom out into the world.

Notaras guides you through:
 Getting clear on your motivation for writing a book,
 Crafting a powerful, compelling hook and strong internal book structure,
 Overcoming resistance and writer’s block, and
 Getting your finished manuscript onto the printed page, whether through traditional publishing or self-publishing.
Publishing a book has never been as simple, accessible, and affordable as it is today, and in our tumultuous world, readers need your healing voice. Be brave, be bold, and take the steps you need to share your message with those who need to hear it most.
