Have You Ever Dreamed of Writing A Book?

Have You Ever Dreamed of Writing Your First Book

If you’ve ever dreamed of writing a book, I have good news for you. Help is on the way! For years, I’ve met with many people who shared with me their dreams of writing their first book. If could be fiction. Non-fiction. A screenplay. A spiritual memoir or family history. Muchas ideas. Many dreams.

I’ve sat down with a lot of aspiring writers for a cup of coffee who have asked me, “How do I write my first book? Where do I begin? Should I self-publish or go for a traditional publisher? How do I write a book proposal?” Before you know, two to three hours have flown by as I’ve shared my best ideas. What has worked for me as well as my struggles and failures. All in the shared hope that my friends would go for it and pursue their dream of writing their first book. Along the way, I kept telling myself, “I could help more people if I just gather all this information together,” which is exactly what I’ve finally done. I’m excited to announce I’ve developed a very practical one-hour class called “Writing Your First Book.” I’ve packed about three hours of practical information into this helpful class designed to help you achieve your dream of writing your first book. Read on…

I recently shared with you the exciting announcement of a new series of online classes developed by The Grove Center for the Arts & Media. Available to you by phone and web, Writing Your First Book is the first of the series. I just recorded this online class yesterday with people online from California, Texas, Boston, Virginia, New York, Michigan and other far off places.

Here’s what Patricia, one of our listeners, had to say about Writing Your First Book

I enjoyed Joey’s Writing Your First Book online class. He was very economical with time and words, yet, got all important issues clearly and succinctly across. I took a lot of notes, gaining a lot of clarity on my book’s purpose, understanding my voice and the foundation to my book. Joey came across safe interpersonally and professionally! Because of his ministry, I was able to sit down and work out my purpose in writing and experienced breakthrough clarity when doing so! I would definitely recommend The Grove’s online classes and look forward to new ones to attend! Thanks!
