The War of Art

The War of Art

$10.42
Think of The War of Art as tough love... for yourself.Since 2002, The War of Art has inspired people around the world to defeat "Resistance"; to recognize and knock down dream-blocking barriers and to silence the naysayers within us.Resistance kicks everyone's butt, and the desire to defeat it is equally as universal. The War of Art identifies the enemy that every one of us must face, outlines a battle plan to conquer this internal foe, then pinpoints just how to achieve the greatest success.Though it was written for writers, it has been embraced by business entrepreneurs, actors, dancers, painters, photographers, filmmakers, military service members and thousands of others around the world."As I closed The War of Art, I felt a surge of positive calm. I now know I can win this war. And if I can win, so can you." - From the foreword by Robert McKee, screenwriting guru"[The War of Art] aims to help readers channel creative energy, unlock potential and overcome the fears that stop us from reaching our fullest potential. With courage, following the right formula and working hard, the book proposes that passion can be turned into purpose." - Ellen Degeneres book pick"Resistance is the voice in the back of our head telling us to back off, be careful, go slow, compromise. . . . [Steve Pressfield is] the godfather of the resistance, the five-star general in the war against fear." - Seth Godin"A vital gem . . . a kick in the ass." - Esquire"I've never read a self help book that wasn't fatuous, obvious and unhelpful. Until The War of Art. It's amazingly cogent and smart on the psychology of creation. If I ever teach a writing course this would be one of the first books I'd assign, along with the letters of Flannery O'Connor." - Jay McInerney, author of Bright Lights, Big City and Brightness Falls"Yes, The War of Art is hell. But Steven Pressfield is our Clausewitz who shows how you too can battle against The Four Horsemen of The Apologetic: sloth, inertia, rationalization and procrastination. Shakespeare, Rembrandt and Beethoven all are proof of what you can do with talent and General Pressfield." - Frank Deford, author and NPR commentator"A marvelous help for anybody who has ever encountered the resistance of a blank page, an empty canvas or an unyielding musical scale." - Stan Berenstein, co-creator of The Berenstein BearsSteven Pressfield is the author of the novels The Legend of Bagger Vance (made into the movie starring Matt Damon and Will Smith), Gates of Fire, Tides of War, Last of the Amazons, Virtues of War, The Afghan Campaign, Killing Rommel, and The Profession. His nonfiction includes The War of Art, The Warrior Ethos, and the upcoming Turning Pro. His books are included in the curriculum at West Point and the Naval Academy, and are on the Commandant's Reading List for the Marine Corps. In 2012, Pressfield will launch his independent publishing company, BLACK IRISH BOOKS with his longtime editor, agent, publisher, and friend, Shawn Coyne.

Write. Publish. Repeat. (The No-Luck-Required Guide to Self-Publishing Success)
Deal
Are you ready to start making a full-time living with your stories?Self-publishing isn’t as hard as most authors make it. Write. Publish. Repeat. was written to save you from unnecessary struggle. Yes, there is a lot to learn, and more competition than ever before, but for those storytellers who are willing to do the work, then set their efforts on repeat, there’s never been a better time to make a living as a writer. Thousands of new books are published on Amazon every single day. The vast majority will never sell more than a handful of copies. This is devastating for hard-working authors who care about their craft and are doing all of the things they’re “supposed to do” if they want to make it as a successful author. But it’s confusing out there, with too many things to learn and not enough time to learn them. Worse, so much of the available advice comes from people who are in the business of selling advice. They’re either parroting what others have said, are making guesses based on assumptions or anecdotal evidence, or are using their personal yet minimal experience with a successful book or perhaps even a few to articulate loose strategies that often have an absurdly short shelf-life. This book is different. Write. Publish. Repeat., was written by successful authors who have been in the indie game since the very beginning. In the last ten years we’ve gone from zero books to a few hundred, with copies sold in the millions, film and television projects in the works, and hands-on work with hundreds of writers like you. We’ve also made more mistakes than we can count. But we made them so you don’t have to. This book explains how to create stories your readers will love and will want to return to again and again. It details expert methods for enhancing creativity, building worlds, characters, and plots, understanding your market (right down to your ideal reader), using the best tools possible to capture your draft, and explains proven best practices for editing. It discusses covers, titles, formatting, pricing, and publishing to multiple platforms, plus a bit on getting your books into print (and why that might not be a good idea!). But most importantly, Write. Publish. Repeat. details the psychology-driven marketing plan that Sean and Johnny built to shape their stories into "products" that readers couldn't help but be drawn into — thus almost automatically generating sales — and explores ways that smart, business-minded writers can do the same to future-proof their careers.What Indie Authors and Thought Leaders Are Saying:"Two of the best in the biz... A gem for aspiring authors." -- Hugh Howey"For my money, this is the best book on self-publishing out there." -- David Gaughran"It's tough to find more honest and straight-forward marketing advice than what you'll get from these indie authors." -- Jane Friedman, former publisher of Writer's DigestWhat Amazon readers are saying:★★★★★ 'Best Book on Self-Publishing that I have ever read.'★★★★★ 'It works. 'Nuff said.'★★★★★ 'A must read for every self published author.'
