You want to write a book that’s fun to write, that readers love, and that is good enough to make those readers look forward to the next thing you’ll do.

You feel like you’re ready, but false starts keep slapping you on the side of the head. You worry about story holes. You’re afraid of bad reviews (or worse, NO reviews at all). And even if you finish your story, you’re not sure how to properly package the product for maximum exposure.

Writing a bestselling book doesn’t have to be overwhelming.

After publishing over a hundred books across several genres, the bestselling authors at the Sterling & Stone Story Studio have developed a process for every book we write.

On one hand, this is proprietary stuff. We understand exactly what is required to build the bedrock of a true author career, and we’re pouring all of our resources into crafting the industry’s best training program. But what we’re creating cannot be rushed, it’s going to takes us a year — at least. Next spring we’ll have the best training program the publishing world has ever seen, and the premium price to go with it.

But this process was developed in collaboration with our community. So we want to give you a chance to learn it all before it’s built and put up for sale.

If you’d rather wait and pick this up as a self-paced program next year, that’s fine. But if you’re willing to clear a couple hours each afternoon for one week in early summer, you can go through the bones of the upcoming program with us right now FOR FREE.

We’ll spend 90 minutes live on the web with you every day during the Bootcamp. We’ll teach you our process, step by step.

You’ll learn how to finish and launch books you love, in a genre where readers are waiting for you.

By the way, we know some of you are halfway around the world and everyone’s schedules are a little different. So we’ll have each day’s replay available for 24 hours after the session.

Register now to save your spot.

Bootcamp is just a memory, but we still have lots of resources to help you write and launch books that you AND your readers will love.

The FREE, five-day Bootcamp started on Monday, June 13. Live sessions ran at 3PM Eastern, daily, with replays available for 24 hours following each session -- unless you're Marty McFly, there's no going back in time...

But we still can't wait to help you. Check out what Bootcamp was all about, because this is the kind of thing we love to do!

 

Monday: Genre Foundations

Find a genre you love where readers are waiting to buy books. Pre-optimize your book to save time, effort, and anxiety. Understand (and meet) your readers’ expectations for 5-star reviews and recommendations.

Tuesday: Preplanning

Even if you’re a pantser, a little bit of planning goes a long way to help you write better stories, faster. Learn to create believable characters and immersive settings, and to plan as much or as little of your storyline as you need.

Wednesday: Writing

We’ll talk through the scenes that make a good book great. Learn to write gripping action, memorable dialogue, or tender love scenes. Discover what to do when your characters back you into a corner, when the plot gets so tangled you just want to nuke the whole thing, or — the very worst: when you just plain get frozen.

Thursday: Editing

We’ll teach you how to set your ego aside and review your own work without cringing or crumpling into a shaking, tearful ball of angst. We’ll help you see your editor as a friend and an essential investment in quality. And we’ll teach you the difference between developmental editing, line editing, and proofreading, showing you exactly when you need them (and when you don’t).

Friday: Post-production and Launch

There’s SO much overwhelming talk about all the things you need to do for a successful book launch. Learn how a book goes from manuscript to actual eBook and print versions. Find out how to set it up for sale on the major retailers (and the critical decisions you’ll need to make).

We’ll also talk about a variety of launch strategies and current tactics, including the difference in launching your first book, the first in an upcoming series, or even a new standalone as part of a wider catalogue.

Whew!

That sounds like a lot, you say?

Well, yeah. It is.  The Sterling & Stone team is focused on making this the most awesome week ever. We value your time and we won’t waste it with teasing or bait-and-switch pitches. We’re sharing everything, with nothing held back.

Don’t miss out!
