Most people have a dream of someday writing a book. But for many of those people, that day never comes. Why? Quite simply because life gets in the way. Either they never make the time to write, or when they do sit down to write they are so far out of practice that the writing is difficult and they quit. Similarly, most people don’t actually know where and how to start. They may write down stories or ideas, but because there is no cohesive structure, they are never able to sort through the stories and put them in any kind of meaningful order.
What about you? Is there a book that you were born to write? Seasoned book editor, founder of kn Literary Arts and author of The Book You Were Born to Write, Kelly Notaras dishes with Lora on the “How To” of writing your transformational nonfiction book.
Whether you are in the early conception phase of your book, or are nearing completion and wondering, now what, this show (and Kelly’s upcoming 5-day immersion at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck New York) will give you your most immediate next steps. It will also get your creativity flowing and teach you practical steps on writing and completing your book with ease.
In the workshop you will learn the how and why to establish the daily habit of writing, how to be productive for hours, how to hone your “hook”—a book’s north star—so it’s both saleable and magnetic, navigating a variety of publishing options, and whether to start with a proposal or a full-length manuscript.
Kelly Notaras started her book editing career right out of college by moving to New York, where she worked in the editorial divisions at Avon Books, HarperCollins, Penguin USA and Hyperion Books. She relocated to Boulder, CO where she became the VP, Associate Publisher at spirituality publisher Sounds True. There she received her education in transformational nonfiction, editing books by Sharon Salzberg, Adyashanti, Krishna Das, David Deida and many more.
She went freelance in 2010 and since then has edited a wide variety of books, including New York Times bestsellers The Tapping Solution by Nick Ortner and Pussy: A Reclamation by Regena Thomashauer. But her proudest accomplishment is her book studio, kn literary arts, which since 2013 has helped over 600 authors get their transformational wisdom onto the page and into the world. With a network of 35 editors, writers and coaches, and $1 million in expected revenues in 2019, the company is dedicated to amplifying positive change in the world through the medium of books.
