In light of this, I am making it my personal mission to help Catholic authors and would-be authors do what most people wouldn't think of doing - write books. I want the shelves of Barnes & Nobles and ordinary bookstores to overflow with the books of Catholic authors, authors who are faithful to Christ's teachings and who love their Church with the same passion that I do. That's the real reason I launched my new website: http://40daywriter.com. I've also started a writer's group here in Elko with my good friend, Cat Higgenbotham.
If you can find just 2 hours of time a day, you really can write a book in 40 days. You'll still need help proof reading, editing, designing a cover, and marketing the book after you've written it, but the rough draft can be in your hands in 40 days putting you miles ahead of almost every other person who wants to write a book. Plus, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you can do it.
Both fiction and non-fiction are ways of reaching people who otherwise might never come to the Church. Fiction has a particularly powerful ability to spark the imagination and draw people in to the wonders of the Church by allowing them to experience it through the eyes of a third party. Non-fiction can show that the Church offers real world solutions to every problem they face. It's not just a bunch of rules and regulations, but a way of life that can and should touch everything you do.
If you are interested in learning how to write a book in 40 days, you can purchase my first book, How to Write an eBook in 40 Days (or less!) in the Amazon Kindle store. For fiction writers, you can find my book, Creating a Character Backstory, in both the Amazon kindle store AND in print.
