Holiday Special! Give yourself the gift of writing a novel
Holiday Special: Give Yourself the Gift of Writing Your Novel
Do you want to get writing but just don’t know where to begin?
Are you ready to get started on your novel now?
Do you want guidance and support to make sense of this whole book-writing world?
If you said yes, then you’re in the right place.
Hello, I’m Beth Barany, an author’s coach, award-winning novelist, and speaker.
I’ve been where you’ve been. That’s what inspired me to write books, teach, and coach authors to help them get writing their novels now. Welcome to the Author Success School, as my clients jokingly call it.
Here’s the Holiday Special to the Author Success School!
Starting December 1st, and for the entire month of December 2013, I’m offering a holiday special to help you get your writing done, and to give you the opportunity to gift yourself the gift of writing.
Because what could be better than living your dream and giving yourself the gift of writing your stories so you can in turn offer them to the world for all of us to enjoy?!
The Holiday Special to the Author Success School is designed to help you get moving, so that you can focus on your novel, or focus on the marketing of your novel.
Give yourself the time to write – yes – even during this busy holiday season. I’ll be helping you figure out how to write during this busy time of year.
Give yourself this gift because writing is really important to you, and there’s no time like the present to flex your writing muscles.
Give yourself the gift of structure, progress, and the satisfaction of actually writing your stories down.
I offer coaching, courses, and books. My books for authors are an accessible way to help you get motivated, focused, and develop the discipline to get writing.
Participating in this special promotion will help you get writing and you’ll win a special prize of $195 value. Read on for all the details…

“Before I worked with Beth in her One-on-One Premium Coaching program, I had the experience of feeling overwhelmed and lost, and had no idea where to start in furthering my writing career, which included editing, marketing, and what to expect in the world of writing. After working with Beth, my past struggles no longer held me back, I felt confident in myself and my writing, and I succeeded in editing my first book and moved toward getting published. Beth was, and continues to be, an invaluable resource and an unwavering support for me and my writing career. I couldn’t have achieved my success without her. I am forever grateful for her amazing compassion, brilliance, experience, and passion for writing.” —
Sapphire Stone, author of Shadow Revenge (coming soon)”
ABOUT YOUR SPECIAL COACHING SESSION
Designed to get you moving, Beth’s coaching sessions will help you:
• Take the next step in your writing

Writers working with Beth have finished their first novels, designed their marketing programs, and published their books. Use your time to get motivated, energized, and focused on the writing goals important to you.
“Before I started working with writing coaching with Beth Barany, I could not get a writing project finished. I had several half-written articles all over my desktop. But after working with Beth, I am so much more focused and productive. With her insightful reflections and guidance I have discovered and developed a writing process that works for me. I have also let go of mental blocks and beliefs that kept me from expressing and publishing my ideas. In working with Beth I found my voice.” — Jeri Lawson, Oakland, CA

“Beth’s Group Coaching helped me to go beyond mere good action and dialog. I dig much deeper into the character interactions and emotions, make them real, make them grab the reader. I put a sharper microscope on character motivations. I’m more daring with relationships and improved the voice to fit the story.” – Richard Burns, Author, www.icanwrite2.wordpress.com

“Over the past year of my association with Beth Barany as my writing coach and creativity muse, I can measure my personal and professional growth. I went from struggling writer to becoming a publisher author with Beth’s help. Beth’s belief in me and my talent pushed me to work harder. My confidence in my abilities to tell a story has grown phenomenally. I thank God for Beth’s help, caring, kick-in-the-butt techniques and her loving guidance. Thank you Beth, for helping me to believe in myself, my talent, and my goals.” – Carol Malone, Author, www.carolmalone.net
Q: Why are there two assignments per book?
A: Learning takes place both with inner reflection and outer action. Each assignment is designed to focus predominating on either inner reflection or outer action.
Q: I’m publishing a book this month, how can I participate?
A: Focus on marketing with Twitter for Authors: Social Media Book Marketing Strategies.
Q: What if I’ve already done the exercise you asked us to do? How can I still participate?
A: Show proof that you’ve done it — send me your replies and your receipt — and if you want “extra credit,” do another exercise. (Extra credit = satisfaction of a job well done and five gold stars; and a second entry into the Grand Prize Drawing.)
“Beth has a way of evoking motivation and inspiration out of me, by just being, listening and encouraging in a subtle way which is perfect for me. I think she understands what I need as a writer. I find myself working harder and accomplishing much more in such a short amount of time, my story is pushing right out of me. She is one of my allies.” – Karen Lodrick, San Francisco, CA, karenlodrick.com
