Starting Your Book

"I miss you. Please write."

~ love, your true nature

Testimonials from Readers


“Reading your book was like receiving a comforting hug of encouragement.

"I love everything about your book: the way you've organized it; the crisp, succinct words of advice that don't hit you over the head; and the gentle, thought-provoking exercises. The connection of writing and the heart ~ of the practice of writing as a way to get in touch with our real nature ~ how true! How could this elude us, ever? Once you have this treasure in your being, you realize how clear it all is: why we write, why it matters.”

~ Jane Falla: writer, editor, former literary agency associate {Massachusetts, USA}


"I am floating, I am beaming. I am halfway through your book and simply love it.

I love your writing style and the information is worth the gold medal.

"But that's not the only thing that I got out of your book. I have my own way of believing in God and don't often look into the Bible. Yet I've been using the 911-line to Him quite often lately. Because of me neglecting to look into the Bible for His answer, He needs to find creative ways to answer my prayers, and He does: He causes a certain physical reaction inside of me and I know that it is Him. Exactly this happened when I was reading your book, and now I know it's going to work. It's almost like telling me ‘Hey, I'm in on this, just trust me!' Thank you so very much.”

~ Petra Meinke, writer {Vancouver, BC, Canada}


" I am working through Starting Your Book, and I'm finding it inspirational in itself.”

~ Colleen Clail, writer{Ireland}


" I have been reading a little every day and I have been very comforted by your words.

"I found that you addressed what I had recently been going through with my writing. Your advice to force nothing and push nothing has brought the feelings I have been struggling with home to me, and I feel a blessed permission to regroup and connect within again. I am understanding how important it is to connect more deeply to myself and my own life in order to write in a ‘connected' way. I really enjoyed how you shared the writing process of the very book I was reading. Your process is very interesting to me because you include so much of your humanness in it. I do understand that the writing needs to be a transmission, and I thank you for putting into words for me what I have been feeling.”

~ Shelley Klammer, writer{Port Moody, BC, Canada}

“The cover art has a magical image. [And] the content!

"I so appreciate the slow-down process that I will take up these wonderful listening practices into my daily routine. Training for an Olympic event, or in this case writing my book!”

~ Mary Ann Plansky, writer (California, USA)

"Naomi Rose's writing and personal coaching sessionshave imbued me with so much that I'm grateful for....

"I'm happy to acknowledge her important influence on my writing life as I have others in the past: Julia Cameron, Natalie Goldberg, and Eric Maisel, to name a few."

~ Chris Dunmire, Creative Director & Publisher, Creativity Portal
