400th Post and a Deal for my Bloggy Friends

400th Post and a Deal for my Bloggy Friends

OK so 400 posts may not seem like a big deal, but for me doing anything 400 times that doesn’t involve Starbucks is an accomplishment.

The other big milestone around these parts is that my 3rd book, The Me Project, is being released in just a few weeks and I couldn’t be more excited.

If you would like your very own copy, (and since this is my favorite book ever, I hope you will…) you can get it – at a discounted price! – and see more about the book, here. (the book will be discounted until the end of the month.)

And, if your group is interested in finding out more about doing The ME Project, we have a whole leaders kit for you to use.  (And of course, I would love to come speak to your group – I promise you we will laugh…)

We will be going through parts of the book on the blog. So if you’ve created a list of goals for the New Year, you’ve already taken the first step in the book. (Doesn’t it feel good to be ahead of the game…)

Thanks for helping me celebrate – and for all your contributions to the book. You are a blessing to me.

Writerly Wednesday: Getting THE Call

Writerly Wednesday: Getting THE Call

I love the behind the scenes stuff – don’t you?

Here is a fun and behind the scenes article about how one of my new BFFs, Erin MacPherson, got the call about having her book, The Christian Mama’s Guide to Having a Baby, published.

Erin and I are working on some projects together, so as you get to know her, I know you will love her as much as I already do.

Plus, she has a ton of FAB recipes on her blog so I KNOW my bloggy friends will love her.

Writerly Wednesday: Do You Want to be a Speaker or Writer When You Grow Up?

Author/Speaker Marketing Boot Camp Saturday August 21st in San Jose, CA

A couple of times a year I get the very fun task of teaching the Author Speaker Marketing Boot Camp for CLASS. (Christian Leaders Authors and Speaker Services.)  This seminar is held all over the country, and now, it’s in my hometown.

If you want to be a author, you have to be a speaker (and the other way around). Every publishing house is looking for an author with a platform and want someone who knows how to market their own book. (The days of multi-city book tours and over-paid publicists are a thing of the past.)

If you want a better chance of getting a book published, learning how to market the book, your message, and yourself are critical.

Plus, this workshop is a whole lotta fun.

So if you want to hang out for the day, learn the business side of being an author and speaker, and meet a whole bunch of great writers who are actually doing the whole publishing thing, this is the place to be.

For more info, check out CLASS for the details.
