Writing Spiritual Books: A Bestselling Writer's Guide to Successful Publication

Pirmais vāks
New World Library, 2004 - 221 lappuses
The burgeoning interest in writing and spiritual growth, spurred on by books such as Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way and Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones has helped to establish writing books as a mainstay in the book business. At the same time, spiritual and personal growth books grace bestseller lists across the nation. Perhaps not so surprisingly, there is a cross-fertilization between people who are interested in personal and spiritual growth and those who are interested in writing.

In Writing Spiritual Books, Hal Zina Bennett will take the writer by the hand: first, he will help illuminate and focus on the spiritual experience; then Bennett shares tips and secrets on the craft of writing, organization, and style of spiritual books; and finally, he will address the practical aspects of finding an agent and publisher, complete with a resource section.

Including both anecdotal and prescriptive material gleaned from the Hal Zina Bennett's work on over 200 successful projects?-for both publishers and individual authors--their will be writing exercises, exploratory questions, and other practical guidance, Readers will be taken through the entire process of writing books for the spiritual and personal growth markets.
