How long will it take to become an author?
The length of time is up to you. There are numerous factors such as whether or not you already have a completed manuscript or only an idea, whether or not your writing time is limited by obligations such as work, school, family, etc., and your level of basic computer skills, just to name a few issues that will influence the time it will take. On average, most serious writers can become authors within three to four months.
Why is it three sessions?
Head to Hand focuses on the three primary areas: structure, content, and delivery. The first two sessions, often within a couple of weeks of each other, lay the foundation by focusing on your structure and content. After these two sessions, you will have learned how to create and complete your interior files which will become your book. The third session will focus on delivery (publishing). At this session, usually weeks later, we will sit together and review (and edit as necessary) your interior file to ensure that it is according to the industry standards, and then begin the publishing process. Supplemental sessions are available.

What people are saying...
I approached Dell Self after hearing her tell the audience that she turns writers into authors. She held to her claim and now I have a published book. I found the whole experience, while learning the techniques of making good products, as life changing. I have and will recommend Dell’s work to others who are willing to work, but do not know how to bring their vision to light. As a minister and speaker, my dream is to share my message.

"Dell was just what I needed."
"I am forever grateful for Dell's ministry!"
Writing was never my problem. I wrote poems, plays, songs, speeches, stories, you name it. But, it was not until I sat down with Dell Self that I was provided the tools, instruction, and guidance I needed to go from being a writer to an author.
