“100 Day Book was the oxygen I needed to breathe life into my creative outlet. It lit my candle and kept me focused on something that I didn’t think I could thrive in.”

Selma Writes

Enrollment is closed. It will reopen in








I know how hard it is to write a book because I've been there. 

My name is Joe Bunting, and I've written over a dozen books. I've also trained thousands of people on how to write books of their own.

But writing didn't come to me naturally. In fact, I have always struggled to write. In high school, I decided I wanted to become a professional writer, but I couldn't even finish one chapter of a book.

In college, I even studied creative writing, but that just made it harder since I knew how bad my own writing was compared to the writers I loved.

After college, I worked as a journalist and then traveled the world to write, but every time I tried to write a book, I failed miserably.

It went on like this for years.

Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever had a great book idea, tried to write a book, and then failed?

Then something happened:
I learned the process.

Everything changed for me when I got a coach, a New York Times bestselling author. They gave me a proven process, and held me accountable to actually finishing.

It worked!

I finished that book and went on to write more than a dozen more.  But without that first coach, I would still be stuck today.

If you think you can write a book alone, you're destined to continue to fail at writing your book.

But with the right coach and the right process, you can finally experience what it's like to finish writing your book. (It's an amazing experience. Trust me.)

Now, I want to coach you to finish your book and give you my book writing process that has helped thousands of people to finish their books.

Why 100 Days?

You might think, no one can write a book in 100 days. And certainly not a good book.

You might even feel like a program like this is just a quick fix. Writing a book should take longer. It's about the experience!

But let me ask you this: When was the last time you spent 100 days completely focused on your writing?

This level of focus can be life-changing. You'll write more than you ever have (plenty for a book). Best of all, you'll feel creatively invigorated and alive.

This is why Stephen King said:

The first draft of a book—even a long one—should take no more than three months, the length of a season.

Writing a book in a short period of time like this gives an energy and focus to your writing.

That's why we believe that 100 days is the perfect length of time to write the first draft of your book.

Yes, your book will need more work afterward, so we'll walk you through the editing process, too.

However, after 100 days, you will have accomplished the most important part: You will have written a book! And that's something to be very proud of.

What Our Students Are Saying

A proven track record of writers finishing their books.

“This program gave me the tools I needed to create a plan, execute in a timely manner, and accomplish my goal of writing my first draft of my book. Without the planning on the front end, the accountability of Joe's coaching and my writing community, this would never have been possible.”

Kevin Garcia

“The most effective part of the class for me was the accountability and community. Having other people to take that journey with me was a substantial force behind my success.”
Kellie McGann

“I wouldn't be a published author without Joe Bunting. Not only did he teach me how to take an idea and turn it into a story, he showed me how to collaborate with other authors to make my writing the best it could be, which gave me the courage to share it with the world.”
Brian Rella
