Champlain Books Launches Pre-Sale Campaign For First Time Author Tim Brookes

BURLINGTON, VT: First-Time Author by Tim Brookes, director of the Professional Writing Program at Champlain College and author of 13 previous books, is a must-have resource for writers embarking on a first work of fiction or nonfiction. This collection of wisdom comes from Brookes’ own experiences with procrastination, crippling self-doubt, and frustration with the writing process, and offers indispensable advice brookes_timfor all authors.

Brookes learned hard lessons over more than a dozen book projects and watched writing students go through the same struggles with their own pieces. He realized these struggles are universal, and the ideas for First-Time Author brewed in his mind for years. The book became a roadmap for overcoming frustration and producing a polished finished product.
