At this level, you'll actually watch every little detail of a story's birth and growth as we write our novel day by day, with nothing held back. You'll see every single step of the process as our book is produced. You'll watch video of every meeting we have about the story's framing, plot, and direction. You'll read every email sent between us. You'll experience every word of our rough draft on the same day it was written, and see the story's ongoing edit, polish, and copy edit as those stages are finished. Watch our "live-write" sessions and eavesdrop on our cover discussions, marketing meetings, and all the stupid things we say when we forget that others are listening.
