Complete Your Book in a Year 

Hazel's  e-MANUAL  and print book grew from REQUESTS:

Procrastinators' requests  on 'how to finish'  a memoir, family history, non-fiction or even a mystery.

The Pandemic forced online sessions of existing f2f  PROV (Public Records Office)  monthly classes.

So we all had to learn new ways of writing online and via this manual.

Bookpod will send a personalised limited distribution copy of the 'Complete Your Book in a Year' pdf  ($15)

or a print or e-copy.

WHO needs this? 

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.

Why Complete Your Book Project?

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.

PROV Group 2019

But the 2020 'Complete Your Book in a Year' writers are still going... that's why the Manual was written.
