Fire in the Belly

Hello from A Word with You Press in the heart of Europe.

Do you believe in the power and beauty of the written word?

I do, and I believe that by writing our stories skillfully, with honesty and artistry, we honor our basic human need to connect to one another. Can you recall anything as fulfilling?

While isolating with my beloved in our loft this winter in Ceske Budejovice, I was able to flame broil a project long simmering on my back burner, resulting in Fire in the Belly: How to write your novel with Purpose and Passion. Let me prove to you that you have grossly underestimated your ability to write a compelling novel, story, or memoir. Let me torch your doubts.



Fire burns 12 lessons to warm you up for that first date with your muse. Following the lessons are assignments to help you turn up the heat, and you’ll have the option to fan the flames by enrolling, for a fee, in an online course based on the chapters. I’ve made the e-book available for half what you’d pay for a frappe-latte double pumped drizzled Starbucks concoction: 2.99. And the e-book won’t make you fat or jittery. Make Jeff Bezos richer, me a busy editor, and yourself a better writer: buy here.

And  please, post a review on Amazon. 

Garnering 25 immediate reviews launches a different algorithm on Amazon, propelling me to reach a larger readership. I don’t expect to retire on the royalties from a book that sells for three bucks, but Fire in the Belly just might be the kick in the ass someone needs to change their life, and start writing their story, discovering the truth in Maya Angelou’s words:

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Thanks for your help with this.

Stay hot, safe and loving,
