If you're like most people who want to write a book, you don't know how to start. You sit down at Starbucks with your laptop and latte and stare at a blank screen.

You don't know how to put the pieces together. You've secretly had the desire to write a book for years.

You feel overwhelmed. You want to be an author, but wonder if you really can be.

If that's the case, this workshop is for you.

"[Before I began the class] I felt overwhelmed. I felt lost. I didn't know how to put the pieces together. I didn't know how to do the brain dump from my head to the actual piece of work." Jenny Eden Berk before taking The 90 Day Book class.
"I learned from this course, let's validate this idea... Let's make sure it's marketable... That process was very, very helpful." Jenny Eden Berk on the From Idea to Outline portion of the class.

Expecting Something Fabulous

Imagine knowing that the idea for your book is validated. Yes, now you know that there are people who need this type of book.

People who can eventually be your clients. People who need to hear your message.

This feels, well kind of like when you know you are expecting something fabulous…like a baby or you are going to get married, or the first inkling that you are going on a vacation.

You are able to sit with your coffee knowing that you can achieve your goal of sharing your message with those that need it.

At lunch out with friends when you all are discussing your dreams, you can let them know that you will be writing a book.

You have clarity of your idea and have taken charge.

What else do you need to know?

This class is different because we spend time working on the purpose of the book, which is one of the key components that most people miss. You will validate and clarify your idea.

Think it's too much time? You're walking away with a complete outline! This is one of the key components to a well written book.

Worried about the cost? I priced this so that it's a no brainer decision. This is a full class along with a Facebook Group to answer your individual questions.

1. Do I really need to validate my idea? Why don’t I just start with the writing?  You want your book to be meaningful. Some of the most important work happens up front where you learn what your readers want (not just need). Adding these elements will make your book so much more relevant to them and help you achieve your goals when you share your message.

2. Why do I need to know more about my reader, I already know who they are?  When you write a book, it is very important that the writing style match the intended audience. Specifically, if you can write to one person as if you are having a conversation, your book will be much better to read. Most people want to feel like they are being talked to and not at when they read a book. Knowing exactly who your best reader is will help you in writing a much more engaging book. In this class you will narrow your reader down to one specific person that you create.

3. How does the bonus coaching call work? You will schedule a one on one time with me where we spend 30 minutes discussing your big idea further and talking strategy for your intentions for your book.

4. Is there a guarantee? Yes! If you are not fully satisfied after the call, just send me a copy of your filled out workbook before our coaching call and I will refund your registration fee.

5. Once I have my outline, what's next? Some people will feel completely comfortable going on their own from this point forward. Others will want continued support. Either way, there is a solution for you so that you can finish your book and hold it in your hands.

6. When is the next class? The next class is September 9 & 16.
