"This isn't a 'how-to' book about writing. It's a book about how to be a writer. How to prepare yourself--holistically, mentally, and spiritually--to take on a project that exists entirely in your head. How to develop the fortitude to believe in yourself and your project for the years it may take to write." --Garth Stein, international best-selling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain and A Sudden Light
"William Kenower is as charismatic on the page as he is in person, and in Fearless Writing he has distilled his wisdom down to its electrifying essence. This is a book that any writer will cherish and learn from." --David Laskin, New York Times best-selling author of The Children's Blizzard and The Family
"William Kenower's book, culled from years of association with writing and writers, will give new writers inspiration or perhaps even a much-needed kick in the pants. Established writers will be moved by its obvious love and excitement of the writing process. In all instances, it reminds writers of the importance--and necessity--of their work." --Thrity Umrigar, author of The Story Hour and The World We Found
