Visit Historical Bosworth in Leicestershire, England.

This historic village dates back to the 11th century and the Battle of Bosworth and the War of the Roses.

The Founder of InspireABook went to the historic Grammar School in this village and will guide you on an historic tour of the area including Sherwood Forest in nearby Nottingham and Shakespeare's birthplace of Stratford upon Avon.

If you are interested in joining Julie for this historic visit for a writers retreat in the winter of 2010, please register your interest now!


Julie Salisbury has a way of pulling the book out of your very heart when you don't even know it's there. She is the writer's mid-wife. I have not stopped since sunday Julie, it's still very disjointed but it pours.

I want to thank you for holding my feet to the fire with your probing and being the catalyst for me to figure out what the book is really about. I don't think I would have gotten to this stage without you.Writing this book is not only very joyous for me but has raised my awareness to another level.It never seizes to amaze me how the right people always show up in my life at the right time.
Thank you sooo much for being such a big part of this joyous journey.
With much love and gratitude.


I found Julie and the Inspire A Book program while working out a deal for self publishing a craft book Gem Tree Sculptures. My book was 90% complete at the time or so I thought. Through the course of the Inspire A Book program I learned that there was more to publishing a book than just writing the chapters and putting it together. It was valuable input for a book that I thought was completed.
Julie was able to answer all questions regarding the book publishing process  I completely endorse the Inspire A Book program to any aspiring writer or even a seasoned writer.
Thanks Julie for a great program and I'm actually looking forward to writing my second book.

What a surprise!  I expected to learn a few tips and get a bit of help with my ideas, but wow!  It was therapy included by drawing the real me out of myself so that I could produce authentic writing from the soul.  How it should be!  I love your radiant enthusiasm, I can't thank you enough"

This workshop enabled me to find my starting place, find clarity, purpose and channel my passion onto paper.  Thank you for providing us with this organized structure to help me begin this journey. 

Kim Ricci

The structure has given me a starting point and given me a plan for writing in bite size chunks/goals. I found the binder worksheets, mindmaps and group discussions really good.
