Praise for WRITE YOUR BOOK WITH ME “If you’re thinking about writing your own book and need inspiration, step-by-step guidance and lots of encouragement, this book is for you. Doug Cooper…analyzes…the actions you need to make your book a success.” Ginny Carter, The Author Maker, www.marketingtwentyone.co.uk “I wish I had a copy of WRITE YOUR BOOK WITH ME as I wrote my first book in 1994. The process by which you can write a book is spelled out step by step, with time-lines, accountability tables, and all the resources necessary to make the journey a pleasure. If you ever thought writing a book was impossible, I encourage you to pick up this book, and you’ll see the possibilities.” Edison Guzman, President, A&E Advertising and Web Design “In these pages I found a great intellect reading widely in the field, consolidating the most practical tips, and expressing them in crisp, down-to-earth prose. He’s also honest-neither promising nor claiming best-selling status-but telling us candidly what works (and doesn’t work) for him and others, motivating us by his passion for writing and his genuine concern for helping fellow writers along the way.” J. Steve Miller, author of SELL MORE BOOKS! and WHY BRILLIANT PEOPLE BELIEVE NONSENSE. “As a budding novelist, I’ve read a lot of books on how to write. A lot. I wish I’d had access to this book sooner…. He covers all the different formats: fiction, nonfiction, and memoir. The book starts with an excellent section on why to write in the first place, then covers preparation, the actual act of writing, publishing, promoting and marketing. It covers the whole enchilada….If you’re contemplating writing and publishing, this book should be in your inventory.” Dr. G.E. Nolly, author of the Hamfist series
