Most people who are working on long-term book-length writing projects experience some or all of these things at some point along the way.
“Writing for the Long Haul” is a course designed specifically to help.
It is a different kind of online writing course than you’ve probably heard of before.
Yes, it has lectures, and videos, and downloadable content. Yes it has worksheets and expert advice that you can’t find anywhere else. But what it also has is actual one-on-one writing support. Directly from me to you.
BEST OF ALL>>>
That's right, you choose!
Why should you want my help?
Well, I've rejected thousands of book proposals.
And I've published over 600 books.Two of my recent publications were a New York Times bestseller and an NPR best book of the year for 2016.
I’ve edited thousands of writers and I’m going to edit or coach you. One-on-one.
So you won’t be left hanging once the online course material ends. You’ll still have me.
Writing is easy and fun and exciting. Except when it isn’t.
And writing for the long haul can be a long and lonely road. But with this course you won’t be going it alone. You’ll have me in your back pocket for up to six months.
That’s a value more than the price of the course right there. Even if you don’t watch one single video or download one single worksheet, the editorial support is there for you.
But you will watch the videos and download the material because you know what you’ll be getting …
A complete package of worksheets, self-assessments, checklists, and blueprints to walk you through all the key points of the course.
This course will reveal:
✔the 4 keys to a long-haul writing mindset

Here’s what some of my online students have said:
“As a busy professional I had neither the time nor patience to spend on a course that was going to be 'light weight' or filled with the obvious. Deborah did not disappoint! Her course was concise, highly informative and answered all my questions---even those I never anticipated would be crucial to eventual success. The delivery style was excellent and I can strongly recommend her course without reservation!”
Pat L. MD
“Deborah is a thoughtful, comprehensive, and very well prepared educator. Her on-line course contained no-nonsense straight talk, humor, and encouragement. Anyone would be well advised to hear what she has to say.”
An industry insider has to say about my teaching style and content:
"Deborah translated her deep knowledge of the publishing industry perfectly to meet my needs. She is mission driven--her mission being to take her book business background and use it to help you.” --Jill Siegal Chalsty Founder & Chairman of the Community for Education Foundation
