I’ve landed—yesterday was a major travel day (Denver to Kona, Hawaii is many hours) … but here’s what I view it as … QUIET time. I got to read a book for pleasure and I put together the infrastructure of not ONE, but TWO online courses that have been on my personal To Do list. Sometimes, just stepping away is what I need. No phones; no Internet; and no talking with others is just what most of use need to go from thinking about it to the Ta Dah! How about you? Oh … and here was a true happy dance … United upgraded me to first class!
Today, I’m off to visit a beautiful Orchid Farm in Kona Hawaii—yup, I’m playing most of the day—swimming, sunning and oohing and awing at amazing colors. And the water. And the beach. And just having some down time.
I look forward to brainstorming with so many of you who took advantage of the deep discounting consulting I offered yesterday—it will lead to the building your author and book success … today … I continue with another goodie of birthday celebrations and gifts to you. Some of you were actually giddy as I spoke with you during the day to finally commit to yourself that this is the year!
And, as I say in each eBlast during the week, you’re receiving this email because you’re one of my fantastic fans, an awesome friend, a family member, amazing client, a fun customer, someone who signed up on my website or just someone I took a shine to …
So, here’s to all of you … your stories, your journeys, your sharing have all become part of Career #6, the current love of my working life: Book Publishing Expert.
My gift to you today for being in my world is:
A Pass for Webinar Participation in:
How to Create a CrowdFunding Campaign for Your Book or Project
Plan on 90 minutes with me LIVE as I walk you through supporting your author and marketing success. Publishing does cost money. Getting others behind you starts the buzz early-on. Several of my clients have been successfully with crowdfunding—getting other people to “gift” to you and your book project. A money gift that is a gift—you don’t have to pay it back. Think about printing, designing, publicity, marketing … anything that your book project needs to get you across the finish line.
There will be handouts, which you will receive before the webinar in March. All dates will be scheduled before the end of the month with a “backup makeup date” for those who miss. Of course, they will be recorded as well and the link will be sent to you.
If you choose, your gift to me is to get my book for yourself or someone who is interested in publishing: The CrowdFunding Guide for Authors & Writers. Case studies of three of my authors … plus the step-by-step on how to create a campaign and build momentum. This is a mini-guide—a quick read to start your book engines and then the how-tos.
