K.M. Weiland Giveaway!

Guess what I have?! Not one, but two copies of Katie’s newest writing manual–and I’m going to give one to you!

Katie’s book:

  • Helps you choose the right type of outline for you
  • Guides you in brainstorming plot ideas
  • Aids you in discovering your characters
  • Shows you how to structure your scenes
  • Explains how to format your finished outline
  • Instructs you in how to use your outline

It also reveals the benefits and dispels the misconceptions about outlining, and gives you several things to think about as you’re planning your novel.

Katie and I will never entirely agree on “pantser v. outliner,” but under her influence, I’ve become more of a hybrid than a straight pantser. Many of the things she discusses in her book are things I already do, just at a different time in the process. But her book illustrates ways to get them done more thoroughly, which helps you to deepen your novel.

Whether you’re a pantser or an outliner, you can benefit from this book. And all you have to do to get it is to leave a note. I’ll hold a drawing next week and announce the winner the week after.

Good luck, everyone!

    I’m a pantser by nature but trying to become a bit more of a hybrid because I know that once I’m contracted [note the positivity in the ‘once’ rather than ‘when’ ;)] I’ll be writing on spec which I don’t think lends itself to a pantsers for obvious reasons. I’d love some more guidance :p.



  11. Thanks for the giveaway. I find lots of great tips and posts on K.M.’s blog but haven’t had a chance to read this book yet.

    I tend to be a hybrid w/ more plotting tendencies, but I could definitely use some fine tuning.


  12. Anna Labno says:

    Please enter me as well. Now, I read books about plotting and structure. This one will fit right there with the other ones for me to go through.

    Thank you,

    Anna Labno

    rkulp000@centurytel.net Thank you.


  26. Sylvia says:

    Sounds like a great book! I’m a bit of a hybrid myself. I usually start free writing and then make a brief outline to go back and fill in weaker spots of the story. This could be a great benefit. I would love to win a copy!


  27. V.V. Denman says:

    I would love love love a copy of Katie’s book. 🙂

  30. Kristine says:

    Thanks for doing this. I am just starting to create my writer’s resource library and this would come in quite handy. I have a Nano novel that I pantsed and now it needs a major overhaul, so I’d love to try outlining next time, but I don’t know how to start. Crossing my fingers 🙂


  31. Linda Yezak says:

    Good luck in the drawing, everyone. And good luck to those participating in NaNo this year!
