Business for Breakfast, Volume 4: The Intermediate Professional Storyteller

BFB_V4_Cover_epub_600x900

This book is a follow up to book three in the Business For Breakfast series, The Beginning Professional Storyteller written by Blaze Ward.

So. You’re a writer.

You’re no longer a beginning writer, however. You’ve mastered some of the elements of your craft, have learned the basics of storytelling, are starting to see some success.

What do you need to take you to the next level, though? This book is aimed at the intermediate. Not the beginner. Not the advanced. But the writer who is actively working on their craft and yearns to improve.

This book is as much of a guide as anything else. Every chapter has a section called “Clues”—questions that you can ask yourself about your writing to see if you need to work on this technique or not.

Some of the topics discussed include:

Character and Setting
Pacing
Trust the Process
Writing Techniques
Reader Expectations

Available at your favorite retailers.

Business for Breakfast, Volume 5: Business Planning for Professional Publishers

So. You’d like to take your publishing business to the next level, and want to create a business plan to help you get there.

But all of those stupid business books make no sense. They were not written for you.

The writers of those books mean well. But they’re talking to other business types and MBAs.

If you hate spreadsheets, and have problems understanding business books, this one (and this series!) may be just what you need.

Business for Breakfast, Volume 6: The Healthy Professional Writer


So. You’re a writer. And like most people, writer or not, you’d like to become healthier.

Whatever that means.

There’s a lot of advice out there. However, most of it comes from people who have always been healthy, or who aren’t writers. Plus, they don’t encourage you to define health for yourself.

This book is my personal journey to health, along with a lot of tips and tricks for how you, as a writer, can start “leveling up” your writing to be healthier and happier.

If you are struggling with your own health journey and connecting that to your writing, this book may be just what you need.

For those of you doing NaNoWriMo, this book also includes a couple chapters on “marathoning”–both writing a lot in a short amount of time, as well as how to prepare for a marathon so you can do it without killing yourself.

Available at your favorite retailers.
