Rewrite your life
April 27, 2017

Jessica Lourey wants to help you write your bestselling book. The St. Cloud Technical & Community College writing instructor’s 15th book and first how-to book releases May 1, 2017.

Rewrite Your Life: Discover Your Truth Through the Healing Power of Fiction helps writers of all levels turn their life experiences into bestselling books. Lourey shares behind-the-scenes tips and tricks for the fact-to-fiction process, and she’s confident that it won’t just help you create your novel—it will transform your personal life.

Rewrite Your Life walks you through the process of transforming what you know—your life experiences—into a powerful novel, and subsequently transforming yourself,” she writes in the introduction to her book.

Based on the novel-writing road map Lourey developed and field-tested in the wake of her husband's suicide and spoke to in her popular TEDx Talk, Rewrite Your Life combines research, practical and engaging exercises, and humorous stories from her own life as well as from bestselling authors she's worked with.

A release party for Rewrite Your Life: Discover Your Truth Through the Healing Power of Fiction will be held Sunday, May 7, at 5 p.m. at Magers & Quinn in Minneapolis. The event includes a one-hour workshop on the seven-step process of turning facts into fiction, followed by a question/answer and signing with Lourey. More information can be found at: https://secure.magersandquinn.com/index.php?main_page=event.

Rewrite Your Life: Discover Your Truth Through the Healing Power of Fiction is available at the SCTCC Library and will be available from booksellers as well as for Kindle download.
