Becoming Writers

How many of you feel like there is a story inside of you that wants to jump out onto pages? That’s a talent. Don’t hide the desire or ignore what you want to accomplish. 

I published three handbooks for those who can’t attend my classes. The first is titled, Bring Your Manuscript to Publication. It is a 3-hour workshop made into a handbook for those writers who can’t afford the time or money to take in workshops. The steps are an easy way to learn. The three handbooks are available at:

All handbooks are $10 and in Kindle. Free through July 2018.

My second handbook How to Self-Publish Your Own Book Through CreateSpace is more important now since CreateSpace has stopped all corresponding with authors on the steps to take to get their books into their publication site. Writers are left with paying one of three different companies to help them prepare your manuscript to upload.

My steps will help you understand the language they talk that leaves you confused. It took me four months, with absolute frustration, not knowing one author who used the program. I was completely on my own, even CreateSpace gave me so much help and then held back on important issues. I now have 2 memoirs, 1 Narrative Non-Fiction and the 3 handbooks that I self Published. Why did I go through the stress? I got tired of paying a publisher to print my books and came out with everyone else getting a huge part of my royalties. Here is a handbook to help you take the leap and publish your own book through CreateSpace and come out way ahead. A charge for $6.00 (cost to receive a printed book to evaluate and make corrections before final print), with no hidden costs. Easy steps to follow. The instructions will help you correct mistakes, learn what they mean by embed fonts, hard keys, certain margins; learn the difference between page breaks, section breaks, inserting headers, footer and pages with a lot more.

My last handbook is Writing Memoirs. The hardest to sell, but a great way to share your good or bad experience in life. Leave advise to the world on what saved you or what steps not to take.
Writing memoirs all starts with the desire to share an event in your life. Here are important questions to know: Can you use someone’s name? Can you write by giving yourself another name? This is a handbook taken from my three-hour workshop on teaching memoir writing. Here is what you will learn:
