Free Books from Jeff Goins

I first heard of Jeff Goins when I downloaded his book You Are a Writer (so start acting like one).Click here to view more details. I was in a place where I desperately needed a pep talk. Someone to help me understand why I sometimes sabotaged myself. Goins' book addresses fear of failure, uncertainty of the unknown, and the anxiety of success.

Anyone else feel that way sometimes?

Right now, Goins is offering two other books for free. The Writer's Manifesto is a short book, intended for reading in one sitting. The purpose of the book is to help writers fall back in love with writing. We could all use a little bit of that in the new year, especially with the fiscal cliff clouds looming! To get the book, head to Goins' site and sign up for his newsletter (it's worthwhile). If you'd rather not get another newsletter, there are links to buy the book for $0.99. While you're on his site, check out the great posts he's been writing.

Goins is giving away a second short book, this one a .pdf file. It's called Wrecked for the Ordinary: A Manifesto for Misfits. He describes this book as "a short call-to-action for people wanting more out of a life, a challenge to make a difference with the gifts you've been giving." Writing this book led to the publishing of his first 'real' book. 

Do you need a pep talk at the start of the year? Or is a fresh start enough to get your fingers moving?


  1. Debbie,
    I enjoyed Jeff's book "You Are a Writer..." and have downloaded "The Manifesto"- what a great idea to read this at the start of a new year! I do subscribe to Jeff's newsletter and can assure everyone that it's not too frequent or too long- mostly just encouraging. Sometimes he's selling a course, but often he gives things for free. Worth the sign up.
    Thanks for the tip!

  2. Thanks for adding your comments, Julia. I need to reread You Are a Writer this week. Hopefully it'll jumpstart my motivation!


  3. Jeff has been an encouragement to me, too, Debbie. I'm still trying to finish his Writer's course. In the new year....
