Not too long ago, I reviewed The Creative Compass by Dan Millman and his daughter Sierra Prasada. I liked the book, enough to want to hold on to it a bit longer. The publisher kindly sent me another book to give away.
Who would like this book? Writers who are doubtful, don’t understand self-publishing and want a thorough, thoughful book that guides writers from Dream through Draft, Develop, Refine to Share. Those are the five steps the father-daughter team use to help writers (and other creators) from idea to promotion.
The book helps you look at, listen to and evaluate research and think clearly about content. The book helps you become more self-aware, pay attention to your audience, and develop the habits of a writer.
There are old truths that will lead you to new wisdom. The balance of the father-daughter team is both analytical and intuitive. It will help you gather the story you want to write and transform it into the book you will be proud of.
Tell me why you need the book in the comments. I’ll chose (at random) someone who needs this book to fulfill a dream of writing.
And thanks to New World Library for giving me two copies–one to keep and one to give away. Winner will be announced on Tuesday, November 26, 2013.
Note: Congratulations to Jody Lund, who won the book!
