We've pulled a few resources together to help you save yourself years of frustration, so you can get to work finishing your book instead of circling around the same chapters only to abandon them again and again.

Start mapping out your next book with our

7-Day Writing Challenge

Author Accelerator’s 7-Day Writing Challenge will help you build a strong foundation by showing you how to drill down into the most important elements that drive your story or argument forward. Without these in place before you start writing, you could risk YEARS of frustration and a book that goes NOWHERE.

When you sign up for the challenge, you will receive seven assignments targeted at defining what your book is about. Throughout the week, you will...

  • Define why you are writing this book

  • Discover the point of your story

  • Develop your book jacket copy

  • Describe your book in one killer sentence

  • Brainstorm and select your book’s working title

  • Start writing your book with our Two-Tier Outline workbook (for fiction)
