Vulnerable Writing: How to Safely Share Your Vulnerable Story in a Book

Do people tell you that you should write a book about your life? But have you put it off because your story involves exposing other people? Or you’d rather not air so much of your personal life? Here are a couple ideas for vulnerable writing that protects your privacy and the privacy of others.

Join me in the Southern Utah Mountains Sept 26-29 for my writer retreat where I’ll be sharing writing tips, strategies and insights, connecting you with your creativity and giving you lots of time to write. I’ll also be on hand for questions… Check it out here.

Correction: I said you were getting two established authors. I’m an established author with 25 titles. My partner conducting the retreat with me is an established blogger with 7,000+ poems and has 2 books in the works, an English degree and is a great editor.

How to Keep Your Readers Turning Pages

Are you writing fiction or considering writing fiction? How would you like to keep your readers turning pages and unable to put down your book? When people find a book so engaging they can’t put it down, they’re more likely to share it with their friends.

In this video I share techniques for keeping your readers engaged and reading. I illustrate my points using a scene from An Uncertain Justice, a novel based on a true story about my 2nd great grandfather who was murdered atop Lookout Mountain in Georgia. The book is about the last legal hanging in the state of Georgia.

I hope you enjoy the scene and glean some ideas for how to keep your readers engaged.

Check out my upcoming September 2017 Writer Retreat in the mountains of Southern Utah where I’ll be on hand to assist you with your novel or non-fiction book.
