Linda Sivertsen is the creator of a new iPhone app called The Boyfriend Log (because love can get complicated and clarity is queen!), and co-creator of Your Big Beautiful Book Plan. She’s also the author/co-author/ghostwriter of 8 other books (2 New York Times bestsellers). Other hats include: proposal doctor, author whisperer, editor, agent connector, idea-fairy, and huge-hearted cheerleader of creativity for writers of all genres and every gold-plated publishing dream. One of Linda’s greatest passions is helping aspiring authors birth their books (and ultimately land book deals) at her popular Writing Retreats in Carmel-by-the-Sea. She’s living her creative writing fantasy-life, and wants to help you claim yours. You can find Linda at BookMama.com (named Best of the Web by the Daily Muse), TheBoyfriendLog.com, and on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram–her latest guilty pleasure.
