"So You Want to Write a Book!"

Carol Chesney Hess
Book Writing Coach & Editor

Whether you want to write a non-fiction book to grow your business or a memoir to share the story of your life or the next great American novel to see your name on the NYT bestsellers list, this is the presentation for you! Carol will share the tips, tricks, and techniques she's gathered in over 20 years in the book writing, editing, and publishing business.

You'll discover how to:
  • Write the right book to grow your business.
  • Figure out what to write about and where to begin.
  • Identify your big why for writing your book so you stay motivated

Carol will share some of her insider knowledge and reveal:
  • A simple 4-step process to make your book writing faster, easier, and better
  • How to banish writer's block once and for all
  • The pros and cons of traditional and self-publishing
PLUS there will be a drawing to win a Brainstorm Your Book session with Carol ($175 value). You must be at the event to win.

Carol Chesney Hess  is passionate about two things -- the power of words and the empowerment of women. She combines both passions in her work as a book writing coach, consultant, and editor. Carol specializes in working with first-time women authors and writers for whom English is a second language.

Tom Stoppard, the British playwright said, "If you get the right words in the right order, you can nudge the world a little." And that's what Carol's all about -- helping women share their words, messages, stories, and wisdom so they can nudge the world a little (or a lot!).
