Hazelnuts on ‘Complete Your Book in a Year’ cover
Self-named ‘Hazelnuts’ who had previously been mentored to publication,
being willing to share their diverse subjects.
from Margaret Healey’s ‘Grandma’s Grandad’s Camel’.
This manual is aimed at ‘procrastinators’ who have a memoir, family history, or non- fiction work to finish, fix or start. Families interested in investigating their histories, their DNA or their secrets have increased due to family tree splits, grafts and young twigs joining. AND special stories of so- called ‘ordinary’ people who have done extraordinary things, should be told WELL.
We need to know about local heroes. Modest ones in our families. And others in our communities. A hero is a role model who solves problems for their community. Or finds new ways of doing things. Their stories are worth telling in accessible formats.
These writing project strategies work for any kind of fiction, faction or non- fiction ‘how to’ book. From a quirky history of the Stawell Gift running race to Holocaust survivors , and ‘how to’ walk the Camino.

Capturing a significant period, wanting to share ,major family changes or just de-cluttering, the reasons for writing a book vary.
Sometimes the process is more important than the completed book. BUT … the reality is … ways of publishing have become easier, but challenges of QUALITY content and keeping readers interested, remain.
Completing a book in a year IS possible.
