Part 8 OUTRO

“Those model proposals alone are worth a ton — I wish I’d had them when I wrote my first proposal.”
– Jonathan Fields | Author of Uncertainty + founder,
I went to graduate school for writing, and YOUR BIG BEAUTIFUL BOOK PLAN is far more comprehensive than what I was offered in classes or week-long publishing workshops. This is a definitive, step-by-step guide for creating ‘gotta-have-it’ book queries and proposals, and it directly addresses what new and emerging writers want to know about the entire process. Forget the Publishing for Dummies books–this is about creating your best work and then getting it into the hands of someone who resonates with your brilliance.”

– Kate Swoboda | Creator,
“For two years I’ve put off writing my book proposal. For two years I’ve came up with every excuse imaginable to put off sitting down and focusing on what I know I needed to do. After 30 minutes of digging into YOUR BIG BEAUTIFUL BOOK PLAN I was writing, planning, and plotting. I finally had the inspiration AND the framework I needed. The result? My first rough book proposal. There’s a lot of polishing to do, but two years of procrastination was just obliterated. If you’ve been putting off the writing the book you know you should be writing, this is the kick in the pants you’ve been waiting for.”

Carmel Writing Retreats

This is about YOUR book, YOUR writing career, and a magical retreat I’d love to share with you.

“My time in Carmel was nothing short of amazing. What could have taken many months took but a few short days, and I will forever be grateful. This experience will always hold a special place in my heart, right next to my first kiss and my first bite of chocolate…”
– Laurie Wajda, Staatsburg, NY

Six+ times a year, I break away from book deadlines and head to beautiful Carmel-by-the-Sea, California (rated the #8 Travel Destination in the U.S. by Condé Nast magazine in 2010), where Jennifer Filice, an extraordinary local chef, greets five writers and me for a dreamy writing retreat. Join us in one of the most alluring artist communities in the world, and experience the mind-blowing magic of sisterhood & synchronicity. Find out why this enchanting city—known for its natural scenery and rich artistic history—drew residents like Jack London, Mary Austin, Upton Sinclair, and Ansel Adams. …Learn More

The Fire Starter Sessions

the permission slip you’ve been waiting for — to fully want what you want and go for it, to expand your consciousness and your cash flow, to up the ante on your dreams, to be incredibly generous with your love. This is a modern-day pep talk and soul-centered Q&A for people ready to shine brighter than they ever have.

And after these straight-talking sermons and burning questions about your truest desires — from career to relationships — you’ll be clear that the only permission you need to shine … is your own.

This is an inquiry into You, with proof-of-theory vignettes to keep you inspired along the way. My own personal narrative of loss and achievement — from boardrooms to ashrams — flows with stories of women and men who stopped playing it safe, deepened their commitment to their soul, and became freedom seekers and fear tamers. Bright.
You’re next.
