Are you an aspiring author? Have you been dreaming about writing a book, ever since you can remember?

 Click here to register for the webinar: http://bit.ly/5StepsNovelWebinar

 According to a recent American survey, 81% of people want to write a book. I’m going to guess that you’re one of them.

 If writing a novel has always been a desire, why haven’t you done it yet?

• Do you feel overwhelmed with the complexity of writing a novel?

• Do you feel confused because there’s so much conflicting advice and information?

• Do you feel like you are too busy, and you don’t have enough time to dedicate to a novel?

• Are you feeling worried that you might not measure up to other published authors?

• Do you feel like you have a good idea but you don’t know how to turn it into a story plot?

• Are you procrastinating because the thought of writing an eighty-thousand word manuscript paralyses you?


 Perhaps you’ve already given it great thought. Maybe you’ve joined writing groups to ask for help. Maybe you’ve bought some books on “How to Write a Novel” but while they’re great resources, you don’t need more theories. You need something more practical for you to get started.


 What if I told you there was an easier way?

 Well there is! I’m going to show you how easy it is to write your novel when you have a clear step-by-step plan to follow. Attend this webinar, and I will show you how to cut through all the doubts and confusion, so that you can start writing your novel in just 5 easy steps!

 It's FREE!

 I look forward to seeing you there!

Introduction
Tolulope Popoola is an Author, Publisher and Consultant. She was born in Lagos, Nigeria and moved to England for her university education where she studied Accounting and Business Economics for her first degree. After a quick stint in the workplace, she went on to study a Masters in Finance and Investment. But she never lost her love for reading, and as time went on, she began to wish for a different career path. She started writing a blog in 2006, which rekindled her love for writing and telling stories. She took a few writing classes, set up an online fiction series called “In My Dreams It Was Simpler” and started writing both fiction and non-fiction for magazines. In 2008, she left Accounting, and started working on her novel. In 2011, she set up Accomplish Press, a niche independent publisher to bring other writers like her into the spotlight. Accomplish Press
