You Can Be a Winning Writer: The 4 C’s Approach of Successful Authors – Craft, Commitment, Community, and Confidence
 
 

#1 New Release in Language & Grammar, Questions & Answers, and Editing ─ Be a Successful Author

Learn the keys to successful authorship from a pro: Joan Gelfand, author of You Can Be a Winning Writer, has been teaching her 4 C’s approach to creative writing and successful authorship to aspiring authors at book festivals and writer’s conferences for the past decade. She has taught her 4 C’s method to college professors, CEOs, doctors, ghostwriters, poets, and playwrights throughout the United States; helping them realize their publishing dreams.

A publishing guide to writing success: From first draft to building a reputation, the 4 C’s provides solid tips on how to build a literary community and a fan base. But, successful authorship does not stop with mastering craft, commitment, and even building a community. Confidence is key, and Joan tackles this sensitive subject that keeps writers unpublished and manuscripts in the drawer. With the help of Renate Stendhal, PhD, Joan defines clear steps to overcoming the lack-of-confidence demon.

The perfect gift for writers: With a splash of humor, a dose of empathy, and plenty of support, Joan Gelfand includes real life anecdotes from famous and not so famous, but successful authors. You Can Be a Winning Writer is the go-to book for writers just starting out, for writers stalled after their first or second book, and for students. Joan’s 4 C’s wisdom and stories will inspire and encourage.

This literary reference and publishing guide includes:

  • Key authorship and publishing tips
  • Important post-publication strategies
  • Guidance on how to avoid mistakes that even the most talented, prize-winning authors have made
  • How, with the help of the 4 C’s, you can enjoy greater success
  • What it means to “fire on all burners” and work to develop each of the 4 C’s simultaneously

Maybe you’ve read Stephen King’s On Writing, Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way, Annie Lamott's Bird by Bird, or William Zinsser’s On Writing Well─now you need to read You Can Be a Winning Writer.
