"How to write a book when you don't know where to start."
 "How to write a book when you don't know where to start."

"I used to feel trapped in my life, always working and never seeing my kids. The worst part was that I didn't see a way out. Do you know that feeling of being trapped in your own life?

Unexpectedly, it was writing a book that freed me from this rut. Once I became an author, people looked at me differently and I had better opportunities - and I got to see my kids after school!

Although I am an engineer and not a writer by training, I published 2 books: one fiction and one non-fiction. I believe that we all have a book in us. If you ever considered writing a book, but don't know where to start, join me so I can show you:

Click here to register for my free webinar: "How to Write a Book When You Really Don't Know Where to Start"

Here is what you will discover in this interactive webinar:

    • Why it has been difficult for you to start writing, despite your best efforts
    • How you can write your book despite what naysayers have been telling you (been there!)
    • A cool mindset shift that will help you to start writing even if you have been stuck or procrastinating
    • Inspiring examples from other authors who never thought they would write - and now bookstores carry their books!
    • If you have been itching to start writing a book or are curious, this is the place to be!

Register for free my webinar: "How to Write a Book When You Really Don't Know Where to Start"

If you're reading this, I have a feeling that you know that there's something more to life. Sharing your knowledge with others is the greatest gift you can give. I recently gave a workshop on this topic and it was a success:"

"What I most enjoyed about Dora Farkas's talk were her personal stories about her childhood, motherhood, and the experiences that contributed to her becoming a writer. I also appreciated the wonderful and useful tips she provided for aspiring writers. Dora's enthusiasm made it easy for the audience to stay engaged and she facilitated a very interactive question and answer session. I highly recommend Dora as a public speaker for any audience who is interested in an author's journey or writing a book."

-Barbara Gugluizza, Concord Free Library

I believe we all have a book in us.
