Jeannie grew up with autism, but no one around here knew it. Twirling Naked in the Streets will take you on a journey into the mind of a child on the autism spectrum; a child who grows into an adolescent, an adult, and becomes a wife, mother, student, and writer with autism.
This is a gripping memoir of a quirky, weird, but gifted child who grows up never quite finding her niche only to discover at the age of 38 that all the issues, problems, and weirdness she experienced were because she had Asperger’s Syndrome (AS), a form of high-functioning autism.
The tale begins at age three and takes us all the way through her diagnosis. Along the way she explains autism in a way that will have fellow “Aspies” crying tears of joy at being understood, and “neuro-typical” people really starting to grasp the challenges that autistic people face every moment of every day.

Émerveillée, elle y croise des collectionneurs d’arcs-en-ciel et des attrape-cœurs avant de finir par trouver une réponse étonnante…

But it’s nowhere near impossible. And it’s far more do-able than you can imagine.
The trouble is, most books offering tips on how to write a book fail to address two key considersations:
1) Most self published non-fiction books suck
2) It’s ALMOST impossible to make a living from ONE self-published non-fiction book
Believe me, I tried. No one has more churned out more epic pieces of monumental Kindle crap than I have.
But then, through making every mistake a writer can, I finally learned and honed a simple step-by-step approach to writing books that move readers, and allow me to have a full-time job as a writer.
And it’s that system I’d like to share with you in “How to Write a Book That Doesn’t Suck and Will Actually Sell…”
Here’s a little glimpse of what I cover:

In Chapter 2, “Yeah, But What the Hell Am I Going to Write About?” I show you some quick and easy exercises to discover a book topic that’s personal, meaningful and marketable.
In Chapter 3, “3 Pillars to Finding a Kick-Ass Non-Fiction Book Idea” we give your book ideas the taste test, and figure out which book topic will the most effetive at building your brand, reaching your audience and making you a good chunk of change.
In Chapter 4, “Research Tips for People Who Hate Research,” I show you how to walk that fine line between too much research (procrastination) and not enough research (shallowness) and how to use what you find out to conquer cliches in your writing.
In Chapter 5, “Ultimate Guide to a Kick-Ass and Super Marketable Book Title,” we’ll go over that most controversial of topics…the ever-important title of your book.
In Chapter 6, “Building the Perfect Beast,” I’ll demonstrate a simple, easy way to outline your book — without sucking the creativity out of it.
In Chapter 7, “How to Write Books People Will Love,” I lay out my personal framework for writing chapters that are easy to write — and are loved by readers for their clarity and creativity.
In Chapter 8, “6 Tips for Writing Your Damn Book,” we go over some strategies to avoid writer’s block and help you actually get the damn book finished.
In Chapter 9, “5 Ways to Rewrite Your Book Into Super Awesomeness,” I show how to actually have fun with rewriting. (Yes, it is possible.)
