Want the adventure to be enjoyable, not strenuous?

Beth Barany's book "The Writer's Adventure Guide" is more of an interactive experience than a book. Instead of teaching the craft of how to write, she focuses on the best approach to tackle the emotions and logistics involved with the adventure of writing a book.

Using the Hero's Journey she empowers the writer through the 12 stages.

The first four stages are the Preparation Phase w

The first thing I like about this book is that it's realistic ... it offers practical ways to complete your first draft in 12 weeks compared to the over-hyped "write a book in a day" books that lack substance ... "The Writer's Adventure Guide" is different, it is full of useful advice and exercises.

As a writing coach, I'd recommend this book to anyone embarking on the exciting journey towards success as an author.

I haven't bought a writing guide book for years (I used to buy a lot but when they started all sounding alike, I gave up and did it my way) but I liked the look of this book. Of course I'd read about the hero's journey from a number of sources but I liked how the Beth Barany takes the reader/writer through the 12 stages. If you want to write, and finish, a book you would have a friend here to do it with.
