FREE 3-Day Challenge

Craft Your Book's

Big Idea

Go from a vague idea—or ten ideas!—to a clear concept for your nonfiction book!

I'll show you how!

Writers just like you have landed on their book's big idea with Ann Kroeker's free 3-Day Challenge—now it's your turn!

Gifted writers end up with fabulous book ideas trapped inside 

This 3-day challenge pulls that book out of you, walking you step by step through the process of crafting your book's big idea.

I created this challenge to help you feel confident crafting your core concept. Gain clarity and take the first step toward developing your book (you'll enjoy tons of free coaching in the training!).

If you've set aside your book idea for too long, take the first step.

This challenge is for the writer who dreams of writing a book someday.

It's for the writer with too many ideas or one precious project that stays stuck inside.

It's for the writer too intimidated, scared, or overwhelmed to start working on a book.

You're in the right place if...

➤  You've got a book in you, but you don't know how to articulate it.

➤  You have lots of book ideas and haven't been able to focus.

➤  You're held back by perfectionism, procrastination, self-doubt, or fear.

➤  You haven't started your book due to lack of time.

➤  You want to work with a writing coach—and you want to find a good fit.

➤  You're ready to develop a book proposal, but you have no idea where to start.

A note from Ann

I'd love to be your coach!

This free challenge is a great way to check out what it would be like to work with me. The training offers a taste of my style and personality—not unlike what you would experience in my signature book proposal training or what we would enjoy when interacting one-on-one.

More importantly, this is your chance to get going with that idea that sticks with you.

Jump in, do the assignments, and you'll walk away with a place to start with the book that's inside you, just waiting to come out!

Your writing coach,
