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

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The burgeoning interest in writing and spiritual growth, spurred on by books such as Julia Camerons The Artists Way and Natalie Goldbergs 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 Bennetts 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.

Synopsis:

Spurred by books such as Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way and Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones, interest in writing and spiritual growth is greater than ever. At the same time, personal growth books are mainstays of the bestseller lists.

In Writing Spiritual Books, Hal Zina Bennett, who has coached such well-known writers as Shakti Gawain, Judith Orloff, and Jerry Jampolsky, blends these trends, showing readers how to focus on their spiritual experience in a way that will enlighten and captivate others. Including both anecdotal and prescriptive material gleaned from his work as a writing coach, the book contains writing exercises, exploratory questions, and other practical guidance. A useful resource section addresses the too-often-neglected issue of finding an agent and publisher with current lists of both. Individual chapters include Choosing a Vehicle for Your Message, Where to Begin — Finding Models to Follow and Read Deeply, and Getting Published and What Comes Later.

Synopsis:

Bestselling author, teacher, and editor Hal Zina Bennett guides readers through the process of writing spiritual books--from revelation to creation to publication.
