Whether you are already a writer or aspire to be, this book is for you. Buy a copy … give a friend a copy. Break out your highlighter, settle in, and allow these authors to motivate, encourage, and inspire you to follow your dream!
Whether you are a writer or have dreamed of writing a book, the stories and tips in Writing Right to Success are sure to encourage you.
The first section of the book is filled with stories from a variety of authors — stories which are as varied as the authors who share them. There is not one guaranteed path to success, nor one definition of a successful writer. After reading this section, you’ll likely realize that you, too, can be successful.
The second section is a tremendous collection of tips and advice from authors who have been there, done that. This is a section to be read slowly and savored, reread and applied. There is a wealth of knowledge, and these authors so generously share what has been helpful for them along the way.
The third section includes biographical information for each author. Again you’ll likely realize that even though their life experiences may not look like yours, there is no “right” way to go. You can do this!
Need a little encouragement to get started, or to keep going? You’ll likely find it here.
