The New Year is underway, and I have just one question for you: Did you make writing resolutions that you’ll actually be able to keep?

Every year I watch dozens of aspiring authors set themselves ambitious writing goals.

And just a few days later they’ve already let them go!

Success is the fuel of any writing practice. The more we write, the more likely we are to keep writing.


The more you write, the more likely you are to keep writing.


I know this not just from watching other writers, but because I’ve seen it play out in my own writing life!

So today, at the dawn of a new year, I want to share my best tips for actually, truly making this year The Year of Your Book!

Recorded live on the Hay House Facebook page last month, this video will show you:

  • Why I truly believe 2019 must be the year of YOUR book
  • My own personal process for setting writing goals
  • Four actionable tips for meeting your goals!


This is a must-watch if you have a book dream. I want to see your book on the shelf by this time next year—watch the video and learn and my best tips for making that happen!
