Publisher's Summary

Have you always been a terrible writer? Have you spent months or years trying to write a book, with continued failure?
Are you stuck in the vicious cycle of sucking at writing?
Or maybe you've been thinking of writing a book for quite some time now, and you just don't know how to get started. The whole process seems overwhelming.
This conversational and action-oriented audiobook is for people who want to write a book (or are thinking about it), but for their whole life, have never been good at writing.
There are tons of myths, misconceptions, and flat-out lies out there about how difficult it is to write your first book.
How to Not SUCK at Writing Your First Book busts those myths and challenges everything you've been told about writing.
This audiobook is filled with proven solutions, options, and problem-solving methods that every first-time author needs to know - no matter what writing challenges you face.
How to Not SUCK at Writing Your First Book gives you the foundation for your first book through:

Four tried-and-true writing methods that make the writing process simple, easy & fast
A writing method that involves zero actual writing (your book can be done in as little as seven hours)
Simple strategies for preventing & defeating writer's block
Uncovering the #1 way to actually finish and publish your book (hint: it has nothing to do with writing)
Shows you how simple and fast writing a book can actually be (by holding your hand every step of the way).
Follow the advice given in this audiobook and by the end, after putting what I have to say into action, you will have easily written a high-quality book.
Best of all, the rest of your life doesn't have to be put on hold to do it either!
I have one last question for you:
What's stopping you from turning your daily conversations and knowledge into a high-quality book faster than you ever thought possible?

Only for the newest of writers

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Al Kessel?

They seem knowledgeable, so yes, i would be willing to try other books.

Has How to Not SUCK at Writing Your First Book turned you off from other books in this genre?

Its just another self/career help book.

What about Al Kessel’s performance did you like?

Fantastic reader.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The only reaction this book invoked was that of "I wasted my money."

Any additional comments?

I do not advise buying this book unless you are completely new to the idea of writing a book and your main focus is nonfiction. There is absolutely nothing in this book that you cant find by doing a basic google search on how to write a book. Nothing. There are several parts where the authors claim to have "come up with" an idea, yet I have seen the same ideas littered across the internet. If last night you decided you wanted to write a book, then buy How to Not Suck. If you are not entirely new to the process then skip it for a something like Bird By Bird, On Writing or simply do a series of google searches.
