How Does the InspireABook Program Work?

InspireABook Publishing Program


The InspireABook Publishing Program is designed to support you in your journey as an author, no matter where you currently are in the writing process. It offers a clear, step-by-step process that will take you from original idea, to complete writing plan, to creating a weekly writing goal that will allow you to finalize your manuscript in just 16 weeks. Our process is very unique as, unlike most writing programs, we start with the end goal and work backwards!

For those just ready to begin, InspireABook will help you organize all the relevant part of your materials and ideas into a simple format that is clear and easy to work with. If you have already begun the writing process, this program will help you effectively evaluate what you have written so far and place it into a structure and flow that addresses the purpose of the book.  Lastly, for those who have finished the writing process, or are already published and want to take your book to the next level, this program will help you understand how to package your message for the best chance of success.

Did you know the past story of your life is a guide to your purpose and calling? Are you ready to help others by sharing your story? Then this program is for you. InspireABook is designed to support writers who are willing to deeply explore their life experiences, recognize the unique hero’s journey found within and then effectively share this message through a purpose driven story.  The process will help you thread the pieces of your story together in a way that unifies your life experiences with what you do and your WHY – the reason you do it. Understanding your WHY will allow you clients to connect with you on a much deeper level, helping you create stronger business relationships that last.

This 16-week InspireABook program (full outline below) begins with a live webinar that runs for 8 weeks and operates like a university course. You are given weekly deadlines to submit your writing assignments and are given important feedback. This section is followed by 8 weeks of accountability while you work on the first draft, held on both a private Facebook group and a live Q & A. These deadlines must be met if you are to achieve your book’s publication date, a commitment made by you at the start of your course. If you miss your deadlines, you won’t reach your goal of publication. And just like a university course, tuition fees are non-refundable.


Idea to Finished book – guaranteed if you follow all the steps and deadlines.
