I was a little nervous to take Beth's course. I didn't think I really had a concrete book idea. But during the course, I got a really great idea for a book. Suddenly it seemed clear, inspiring and easy to write. --Cheryl Liquori

This course helped greatly in creating a framework and a set of tools to move forward with the process of writing -- for any genre. --Bill Chamberlain

A Treasure Trove! The Book Writer's Adventure workshop is fast-paced, interesting and an adventure. It's a writer's Disneyland! --Sally Faubion

The first thing I like about this book is that it's realistic ... it offers practical ways to complete your first draft in 12 weeks compared to the over-hyped "write a book in a day" books that lack substance ... "The Writer's Adventure Guide" is different, it is full of useful advice and exercises.

As a writing coach, I'd recommend this book to anyone embarking on the exciting journey towards success as an author.

Even though the title states, "(for Novelists)", I feel that all writers will get great value from this book.

By applying Beth Barany's ideas to copywriting, script writing or non-fiction books you'll open your mind and become a better writer.

PS: I commented earlier on another review of this book and it may be useful to repeat it here in the hope that it may help you decide to choose this book.

The book is full of great advice that is well organised in organic Parts and Stages that guides the reader through the key phases that a writer moves through when they write a book.

I've been a professional writer for many years and found "The Writer's Adventure Guide: 12 Stages to Writing Your Book" to be a valuable addition to my library.

The book delivers on all it's promises and provides exercises that will help serious writers go back to basics and strengthen their writing.

I'd definitely recommend this book to any writer committed to their craft

Ms. Barany does a fantastic job on instructing writers. She explains everything very clearly, and she has broken down the entire process into twelve week-long increments. There are writing exercises for you to complete, and she encourages you to email her about your progress.
By reading and re-reading this extremely helpful book over and over again, I feel that my writing has greatly improved, making writing my novel much easier and quicker. If you are an aspiring novelist, then this book is most definitely for you.

"The Writer's Adventure Guide" by Beth Barany is the exact guidance a writer needs to start writing and finish writing their manuscript. Barany's voice is optimistic and encouraging, and her words make the reader want to act. The book takes the reader through all steps involved in the writing process, with adequate attention on each one. The reader will feel fulfilled and complete after reading, and will likely have something written in the process.

"The Writer's Adventure Guide" begins with preparing to write. It gets the reader ready to begin writing and gives them time to reflect on important matters with being a writer, such as goals, motivations, conflicts, and strengths. Each chapter ends with "a writing spark to ignite your creativity." The book also covers time management, writer's block, support, "free writing," rewards, tracking, and accountability.

"The Writer's Adventure Guide" is simply that - a guide to a writing adventure. The book helps the reader tackle whatever it is they wish to write. There are assignments that encourage the reader to have a writing schedule and write towards their goal. The book can also be read without doing the assignments, for it is still an enjoyable, educational, and motivating book.

I highly recommend "The Writer's Adventure Guide" to all readers that are writers, and for those who don't consider themselves writers but simply want to complete a writing project. The book is full of motivating suggestions, expert advice, and thorough knowledge about the craft of writing and publishing.
