How To Research with book coach Kerry Savage

Sitting down to do research can be just as intimidating as staring at a blank page–but it doesn’t have to be! Whether you are looking to add some immersive detail to your 13th century historical or make sure that you’re describing the potential professional problems of an anthropologist accurately, there are resources out there that can help you answer all your questions.

Join certified book coach Kerry Savage as she takes you through the ins-and-outs of burrowing through the noise of the Internet to find what you need. In this class, Kerry will show you:

●How to do a better Google search to get targeted results
●How to find primary source material when looking for historical documents
●When and how to call in the professionals (and who the professionals are)
●How to keep your research organized and manageable

This class includes a “How To Research” reference sheet that summarizes the takeaways and resources discussed.

This class is for:
●Any writer interested in historical fiction but finding the idea of research overwhelming or intimidating
●Any writer wanting another tool for bringing depth to setting/world-building and character development

Kerry Savage is a writer, certified book coach, and project manager who loves historical fiction and (almost) all things research. She is currently at work on a novel set in the 18th century about a female pirate, for which she has learned about old pregnancy tests, virtually traversed the streets of London using old maps, and found an arrest warrant issued in 1720 in a Boston newspaper.
