You’ve read all the self-publishing pep talks.

Your book still isn’t published. Or finished.

So why not try a different approach?

Not Write Now isn’t like any book on writing you’ve read before. It won’t tell you to get your hiney in the chair and write. It will tell you to do the exact opposite.

Acclaimed fantasy author Kyle Robert Shultz launches a reverse-psychology attack

This book is BRILLIANT and HILARIOUS and all writers should read it. XD

Lots of good advice, disguised as non-advice, an

Well, if you want a book that happens to be like this one, this is the one to read. As some Anglophone in Spain might have said only yesterday, fact is fact, and I, in total agreement, will add that fact as a collective model of the several integral parts of reality includes the simple, unrefined truth that Kyle Robert Shultz is as incredible at writing nonfiction as he is at writing fiction.

Oh my this is a book that I didn't know I needed. I have been trying for so long to give up writing. Everytime I try to not create, words will insist on appearing in a word document.

Finally, author Kyle Robert Shultz, a self admitted failure at not writing, has provided me with the tools I need to kick this writing bug once and for all. I can't wait to see all of the free time I will have once I am am no longer enslaved to the keyboard.

Wait a minute, what? Oh no I've done it again! Look at all t

Kyle Robert Shultz began writing in his early teens after being bitten by a radioactive book. As a Christian, he strives to write fiction that is entertaining and wholesome, but devoid of overt “messages” or agendas. He lives in the wilds of southern Idaho, removed far enough from civilization to keep humanity safe should any of his rough drafts break through the electric fence. Aside from writing ...more
