The secret is out: Author In Progress is coming soon(ish)

paper wrapped book with "coming soon" tag

I’ve had such a hard time keeping this a secret, but I can finally tell you I’ll be adding another nonfiction book to my oeuvre (sorry, I couldn’t resist using that word). I’m part of the forthcoming Writer Unboxed (WU) collaboration published by Writer’s Digest Books, Author In Progress: A no-holds-barred guide to what it really takes to get published (Hint: It’s less about adverbs than you think.), edited by the awesome WU co-founder, Therese Walsh.

Due out in November (I know, not exactly around the corner), Author In Progress went up for pre-sale yesterday. The collection of essays from all of Writer Unboxed‘s regular contributors guides you through the entire process of writing a manuscript, including how to deal with the frustrations of writing and pushing through when you think your work, uh, stinks (hint: that’s the section my essay’s in).

I’ve only read my own part, so I’m excited to get my hands on it! With such an all-star cast, I’m confident the book is going to be fantastic, and I’m honored to be included.

Author In Progress is something I hope every writer—at any stage of their career—will find useful. And with the November timing, I see this on many holiday wish lists. *marks calendar for holiday giveaway*

Waiting for Scrivener class news? It’ll be coming much sooner than this book. I promise. 😉 Happy writing!

      Thanks, Ara! I hope things are going well with you. Working on another book?

      Will you be at RWA in San Diego this year? If so, we have to meet up finally!
