As I was thinking through the most valuable things I could give you as “your book publishing coach,” what hit me was that the most important thing you need to know is which of the three publishing paths is right for you.
What, you don’t know what the three publishing paths even are?
Don’t feel bad, few do. Until recently, there weren’t really more than one publishing path.
But as you know if you’ve been reading me at all, things in publishing have changed tremendously.
Now there are three pretty distinct paths of publishing, and if you don’t know what they are and which one you’re on, Read More→
June 3 was the official launch day for The Healing Code, a truly revolutionary book that I have had the privilege of helping to “birth.” (Find out why it’s the most important book I’ve ever worked on here.) I h ope you’ll both read this post to benefit from their example, AND get this wonderful book. Update: On June 3 it made it to #1 in 5 categories, including “General.”
I was very impressed with the way they are going about the launch, which you can view here. Please view it in your browser after reading this post, and you’ll have an example of what I consider to be a “book launch” with panache–something you can model for your own.
What I like about it is, first, it’s not full of hype. Even the clean look of the site adds to this feel. (The actual topic is incredible enough, it doesn’t need any more hype. This truly works–I’ve tested it for 3 years, my own testimonial can be viewed here, and I’ve seen it work wonders with many, many other people as well–including my 78-year-old mother.)
Second, they give you a couple of free videos whether you buy anything or not. Yes, they are building their mailing list, but with integrity. The videos add to the value of the book (and yes, the desire to get it) in an honest way. (The Dr. Bruce Lipton video is in 7 parts, at least 70 minutes long.)
Third, you get truly valuable bonuses: access to a teleconference series, “Secrets of Dynamic Living,” as well as other bonuses. Classy bonuses, related to the book’s topic, from people who truly know about The Healing Code and want to promote it. Not a bunch of no-value bonuses from everyone under the sun.
And if you want to read an excerpt, you can do that here. Note: If you missed out on the launch, you may still get the book and the bonuses, but only here (my special, which includes free shipping and bonuses of my own, as well as the ones offered on launch day).
Happy New Year to you!
For many, I know 2009 was a year to forget. So much bad news in the world, and much of hits home.
Yet for me, 2009 was an unexpectedly good year. Despite the economy and the turbulent state of publishing, it was an incredible year for me.
In fact, it was a “turnaround year,” when when the “bamboo” I’d planted and had assiduously watered and cultivated finally took off.
You know I’ve often said (borrowing from Alex Mandossian), success is like bamboo.
Bamboo grows silently in the ground for 4 years. Not a sign of life.
Then, in the fifth year, a shoot pops up. In that one year, it grows 80-90 feet tall!
2009 became my “bamboo year.” Around halfway through the year, the shoot popped up. I’m talking about my business and personal life–everything.
The things that contributed to my success are eminently duplicatable, I’m happy to say. I’m not just “lucky.” Luck has nothing to do with it. I’ve just discovered some Read More→
One of the BEST ways to be both well heard and well paid is to have a blog.
You’ve heard that before from me.
I’m writing TODAY–and I’d like you to act right away on this–because Cathy Perkins is giving a class tonight on how to make money with your blog.
The class starts tonight, and if you can be on the live call, there will be a bonus.
But even if you open this too late, or have another commitment, you can still sign up and you will be able to listen to the recording. At your convenience. Again and again.
This class is very inexpensive–only $25. You will get specific strategies you can put to use tomorrow (if you already have a blog).
I rearranged my schedule to be there myself tonight. Hope you can join me!
