NANO Participants Credit Bestseller in a Weekend for a Successful Start

Share Article

Aspiring fiction authors credit the lessons learned during Bestseller in a Weekend for Fiction Writers with helping them get a head start on NANO, or National Novel Writing Month.

Participants of National Novel Writing Month had the help of writing coach Beth Barany, who, along with creator Alicia Dunams, helms an intensive writing program called Bestseller in a Weekend for Fiction Writers. The three-day program is broadcast online via live webinar sessions and is ideal for overwhelmed writers who desire the support of a writing community and reliable, no-nonsense tricks of the publishing trade, but who may feel lost amidst the many concerns relevant to publishing.

NANO and Bestseller in a Weekend for Fiction participant Jeff Ezell credits Barany’s coaching for pushing him beyond I’m-too-busy excuses to brave the “rushing waters and tricky currents” of novel writing: “With Beth's butt-kicking and confidence-building, I could build a 50,000-word bridge to the other side!”

Barany will guide a new group of aspiring novelists through her multi-step process from December 6-8, 2013. Spaces for new attendees are still available. Barany is a writing coach who has been helping authors write, edit, and publish their work for 12 years. Her books, The Writer's Adventure Guide: 12 Stages to Writing Your Book and Twitter for Authors: Social Media Book Marketing Strategies for Shy Writers, offer practical advice for seasoned and novice authors alike.

Dunams, creator of the Bestseller in a Weekend workshop for nonfiction authors, launched the new workshop for genre fiction recently after repeated requests from writers wanting to break into fiction writing.
