Rebirthing my Books

Sometimes it's good to breathe new life into a book or books that aren't thriving. New covers, new titles, and a new pen name can work wonders.

30-Day Novel offers a guide and workbook for your 30-day, novel-writing adventure. It doesn't tell you how to write a novel; it tells you how to survive a 30-day writing marathon. It invites you into the magic inside your mind where words dance through your imagination and come alive on the pages of your novel.

There's an invisible library that houses imaginary books. Writing gods and goddesses wander through the pages. It also offers a bit of time morphing, a kahuna quest, the magic of wishes, and the reality of imagination.

What could possibly go wrong? Or Write?

What would happen if you wanted to find a kahuna to get first-hand knowledge for the novel you were writing and to learn more about the magic within yourself?

But you didn't have a clue how to make that happen. Then you were invited to spend a month in Maui -- all expenses paid -- to write the novel you've always dreamed about.

And what would happen if you found out that there was a catch... that you didn't really know what you'd gotten yourself into?

It happened to Mocha. It could happen to you.

Listening to the Words

Sometimes the most important words you write are the words you don't write.

The words that flow softly and quietly through your mind, giving you ideas and inspiration. The words that whisper to you in your dreams. The words you hear while you're meditating or slowly savoring a steaming cup of coffee.

Take the time and listen to those words. Hear what they say.

Novel Prep ~ Blueprint

Are you thinking about writing a novel? Maybe you have it all planned out on paper or maybe your story is playing out in your mind.

My first novel came easily to me. I just sat down at my laptop and banged out the words in thirty days. Then I started to write a second novel which quickly turned into a hot mess. That certainly put some planning into the picture for me for my future novels.

I decided to write a workbook that would be helpful in sketching out a story... leaving it open enough so that any writer would be able to play with the magic inside their imagination and let the story they have inside come out and play on the pages.

I debated whether to bring it out as a separate book, but decided to include it in 30-Day Novel.

The workbook guides you through YOUR novel, the way YOU want to write it. It invites you into the magic inside your mind and shows you how to make the writing magic happen. It offers a sense of direction and lots of things to think about as you begin to plan and write your novel. It encourages you to bring forth and listen to all your totally wonderful, magnificent novel ideas that your muse whispers inside your mind and your imagination.
