Thank you Karen for putting together such a practical, fun and interactive workshop. My favourite parts of WRITE your LIGHT were learning how to deal with the negative self-talk when feeling blocked, how to see ourselves as authors, and learning the steps to the book’s launch. You were the teacher that magically appeared in my life at the perfect timing, thank you!
— Vesna Cavic ~ author of 'dear confidence'

with this online workshop you will...

  • hone in on your compelling, engaging book topic
  • create the outline & map out the content for your book
  • create a plan to get the book written, and start writing right away 
  • overcome any blocks, resistance, fears, or doubts holding you back from getting the book written, published, and launched (because mindset is at least 50% of making this happen!)
  • work out the details for self-publishing, editing, formatting, ebook publication, cover design and more - all of the jobs that need doing besides writing!
  • plan a successful launch for your book - including information on using kickstarter (or similar platforms), having a kindle ebook launch, and longer term plans to market your book.

here's how it works:

the workshop is self-paced, instant access, and online via a password protected member's page. go through the workshop content right from the start or jump ahead to whatever content you need right now. each step includes video/audio instruction as well as PDF notes, worksheets & printables, plus there is a resource library with additional helpful links, resources & tools. 

step 1- ignite: get clear on your book topic, type, style, audience, and vision - this is a FUN way to start on your book with ideas and exercises to fuel you going forwards

step 2 - prepare: get ready to write by preparing everything you, your book, and your mindset will need to bring this book to life

step 3 - plan: create the outline for your book, map out the entire content plan for your book, and create your personalised writing plan so that you can start writing your book right away

take a break from the workshop and get writing!  

step 4 - publish: map out the process for the rest of the book: editing, preparation, cover design, self-publishing (print book, ebook, audio book); includes full checklist of jobs & discussion of costs. 

step 5 - promote: start creating the plans for marketing, launching, and selling the book. while this may not be on your radar yet, you can start preparing and building buzz now!

how to keep the momentum with your book, how to keep selling books after the initial launch, and how to build the book into your biz/brand plans. i am sharing tips from successful self-published authors (just like me & you) about what works for them and what mistakes they've made along the way.

  • confidence & belief in yourself as an author: ready to take action and make this book happen,
  • and a complete checklist & plan to publish, launch, promote your book with ease and success.

i joined WRITE your LIGHT because i was in need of book writing guidance… i had no idea where to begin or how to structure a book! i was drawn to this workshop because i admired the wonderful social media presence Karen had during her entire book campaign… she is totally my ‘go to’ book writer’s guide. i loved the style of this workshop with open ended access to the content… it suits the length of time it will take me to write my book. the biggest shift i experienced from this workshop is the total belief that my book will manifest. i think WRITE your LIGHT is perfect for anyone who wants to nut out their book ideas and work on the mindset stuff too.

I found Karen on Pinterest several years ago, and began following her work, because I appreciated her level of creativity in how she presented her own business, and her full transparency in what she was doing. I joined the writing workship primarily because I knew she had just completed her first book, and I was interested in the process. She has created a very structured (yet flexible) approach to writing that helps to keep you motivated as you write, and helps to get you over the bumps and blocks that you’ll inevitably hit throughout the writing process. I highly recommend ‘write your light’!

this workshop is focused on self-publishing a non-fiction book. if you have another type of book you want to publish as part of your personal brand, your business, or your mission, you are still very welcome in WRITE your LIGHT... just please note that i will not be teaching how to write fiction, children's stories, fables, etc. if you have dreams of working with a publishing company, this workshop will still help you get writing and learn about book marketing, which you will need to do no matter what!

if you have already started writing your book - you are still very welcome to join write your light. you will still get so much out of this workshop: you can work on finishing your book, get it published, plan your successful launch, start building buzz right away, and most importantly perhaps, you will be able to apply all of the mindset & unstucking strategies to actually getting your book out into the world! 

you set the pace of your learning... all workshop content is stored on a password protected page, which you can access at any time. you can take as much time as you like to access the content - focus on getting your book written and then come back later for the promo info if you'd like...  or jump ahead to learn about self-publishing if that is what you need right now. you have access to this workshop for its lifetime, it's completely up to you how you use the information and how much time you spend each week on the workshop.
