The e-course, based on the popular book, How To Write A Non-fiction Book In 60 Days, comes complete with practical writing exercises that will help you define your idea, purpose, audience and scope. Then the course takes you step-by-step through the process required to move from inspiration to a detailed chapter-by-chapter outline. 

By the end of the course, you will be able to write a solid first draft of your book. As an added bonus the e-course includes How To Write A Non-fiction Book In 60 Days, which shows you how to write each chapter, from outline point to point.
