Wondering where to start brainstorming your book? Fiction or nonfiction, this workbook will help you plan out your story in ways you never have before.

Most of us write linearly but brainstorm in a nonlinear way. If one thinks of writing a book as being similar to putting together a puzzle, this workbook is intended to help writers create key puzzle pieces. This workbook is intended to help writers brainstorm and plan out their books in a way that is organic.

April Kihlstrom was one of the first writers to embrace the concept of Book in a Week. She has been teaching the material in workshops and online classes for years. All of the material in this book comes from her experience both as a multi-published author and in teaching these workshops and classes.

"April's questions will make you explore your ideas -- and give you new ones. They will challenge you to develop the full potential out of your story."--Anne McAllister, award winning author contemporary romances

"Through the series of questions that April asks she makes each author delve deeply into their character and story line. April's questions make you think about how your character's history, social standing, occupation, family position, and more impacts how they handle the various situations we authors toss them into. At the end of April's class you have a deep understanding of your characters that writing the story will be a breeze."--Ruth Seitelman, published author

"I will be forever grateful for the month I spent doing your lessons in BIAW. The lessons were, indeed, thought-provoking. The questions you asked me to answer made me really think about where I was going with my book, and how I could make it the most interesting. I worried that, since I am writing non-fiction, I might not get value from it, but I was wrong. I appreciated the way you posed questions for both fiction and non-fiction writers.Thank you so much for all of your kind help."--Robin Heart Shepperd, nonfiction

About the Author

Although her background is in mathematics, (including a master's degree in operations research), April Kihlstrom is the award winning author of over 30 published romance novels-many of them written using Book in a Week for the first draft.

Life has never been simple and out of self-defense she discovered ways to cope-and Book in a Week is one of those ways. Dragged into it kicking and screaming the first time, to her astonishment she discovered it can be one of the best gifts a writer can give him/herself. One of the first people to embrace the concept of Book in a Week, she has been teaching this method through workshops and online classes for years.

April believes that we write best when we write out of joy and faith in ourselves-and her coaching, her online writing classes and this workbook are designed to help writers do just that. These days she specializes in as needed-as opposed to on-going-coaching that very quickly uncovers a client's individual best writing strategy.
