Ass Plus Seat

Writer and filmmaker Eric Shapiro worked professionally as a ghostwriter for over 3,000 clients around the world before co-running a Silicon Valley newspaper with over 30,000 readers. In between, he's written acclaimed fiction books under his own name, along with award-winning screenplays. ASS PLUS SEAT, his first nonfiction book, is where he shares his secrets, exposing and exploring how for years he's motivated himself to write each and every day.***ASS PLUS SEAT is an essential guide to help writers dealing with procrastination in the midst of the writing process. It’s a book on how to write from the standpoint of staying disciplined and inspired, complete with good tips for writing and expert advice for writers. Put it on your shelf next to the other classic creative writing books for adults, whether you are seeking inspiration to engage in the act of novel writing or screenwriting. "I wish this book had been around when I started writing. I cannot fathom the amount of tears and bullsh*t it would have saved me." --Scarlett Amaris, screenwriter, Color out of Space"Ass Plus Seat takes you deep into the method and mind of writer extraordinaire Eric Shapiro. If you've ever gotten stuck on a writing project or creative endeavor, this is the book for you. These easy to follow tips will stimulate your brain and get you writing like never before." --Kate Jonez, Multiple Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of Lady Bits and Candy House“Eric delivers not only blunt, honest, experienced advice for writers wanting to increase their output, but he does so with humor and style that will make you read this book in one swoop. However, it’s also a title to add to your ‘self-help for writers’ shelf to re-visit anytime the voice inside your head tries to say you can’t do it. Stop lying to yourself and join Eric’s literary boot camp for wordsmiths.” --Erin Al-Mehairi, editor/owner of Hook of a Book Media and author of Breathe. Breathe."For anyone who has ever agonized over that intimidating blank page, this book's for you. Eric crawls inside the mindset of the writer from the practical to the mystical to help you attack that blank page like a warrior on the battlefield ready to conquer the written word and claim the brass ring of allowing yourself to forget the world around you and let the words flow -- to write with not merely your mind but also your soul. From the novice to the expert, Ass Plus Seat will help you get out of your own way and get at the heart of whatever tale you want to tell. Stop overthinking, and just write! --Melissa St. Hilaire, co-author of the Saurimonde series"If you really want to know what it takes to be a writer, read this book. If you want to know what it takes to write like fire and harness that beast inside of you that cannot quit the heat of words, read it as often as possible and keep it at your bedside for good measure. Lastly, enjoy the ride. Eric is an honest and excellent guide with the scars to prove it."--Jeannette Encinias, published poet and writing coach"Eric Shapiro is a madman. But not, like, a flailing madman--he’s a madman of precision, of heavily structured, ordered chaos. He’s a madman and a sage, a zealot and a master, and he imbues this exploration of the divine act of writing with the same driving fire that makes his fiction a goddamn necessity. Put it on the shelf alongside Strunk and White, and Stephen King’s ON WRITING..." --Mason James Cole, author of Buster Voodoo"I am a world-class procrastinator. Eric Shapiro’s new book made me feel a little less ashamed and a lot more inspired to finish one of the thousand works-in-progress I’ve got lying around. His tone is gentle but firm, jocular but serious, and this work is so completely relatable. I wish I’d read this sooner! I’m going to get back to my manuscript - not tomorrow, but right now!" --Shannon Giglio, author of Short Bus Hero
