DO YOU HAVE A MIRACLE STORY TO SHARE?
ARE YOU READY TO BECOME A #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR WITH ME?
Have you dreamed of writing a book – but do not know where to begin? Do you have a miracle story you would like to tell? Would you like to realize that dream with a community of miracle-minded people? I have published three miracle-minded books and all three have become Amazon bestsellers.
NOW, I AM READY TO CREATE A COLLABORATIVE BOOK ON MIRACLES IN THE TIME OF COVID.
As A Course in Miracles states: Miracles are natural – if they do not happen something has gone wrong. I know all of you have amazing miracle stories in your life. Now more than ever, after years of COVID and bad and sad news stories I believe people need to
- hear stories of encouragement and
- stories of how having faith and trusting the little voice within leads to the creation of wonderful miracles.
I AM INVITING YOU TO BE A PART OF THIS BOOK.
Before I published my own books, I was in two collaborative books. It is an easy way to put your toe into the world of publishing and become an author. A collaborative book can be a powerful tool to help you grow your business or expand into a new career. Best of all we will come together as a community of like-minded people who will support each through the creation, launch and promotion of the book. Believe me, it has taken me years to learn how to do the many things I am offering you today.
WHY COLLABORATE ON A BOOK? WHAT DO YOU GET?
By collaborating, the overall costs, timeline and professional know-how are minimized for you. Here is what will happen and what you will receive.
1. STORY IDEA WORKSHOP.
Miracles and Wonders will hold a personalized online workshop with which includes a proven formula to mastermind your story, title, and content. This kick-starts the process. Once we brainstorm your idea and you know what you are going to write, you leave the workshop with the tools to write your story.
2. WRITING COACH.
Within a month of the workshop, you will receive coaching and support for writing your story. Each story needs to be only 2500 – 3000 words or about 5 or six pages.
3. PROFESSIONAL EDITING.
Your story will undergo professional editing. You will be personally involved in this process.
4. ALL GRAPHICS, BOOK LAYOUT, QR CODES.
Creative Wonders will create the book cover, graphics, QR codes, ISBN number and give you directions on how to create a video on your story to promote the book.
5. VIDEO DIRECTION
Miracles and Wonders will give you directions on how to create a simple video to introduce yourself and your story to your audience. We will supply graphics and any final editing that is needed.
6. QR CODES
Books need to be interactive and since Covid people are used to using QR codes to access real estate properties, restaurant menus, museum tours and much more. We will create QR codes to make our book interactive. The QR code will connect to a personal video introducing your chapter, or it can connect to a downloadable sheet, or to your website or course.
7. PROFESSIONAL PROOFREADING.
Creative Wonders will have the book professionally proofread so all grammar and typos will be identified.
8. POSITIONING THE BOOK FOR BESTSELLING STATUS DEPENDS ON THE AMAZON CATEGORIES YOU CHOOSE.
Choosing the categories your book will be listed under is one of the most important things to having a successful #1 best seller. Miracles and Wonders will take care of this step.
9. PRINTING, SHIPPING.
Miracles and Wonders will handle all the printing, distribution, and shipping of the book on the day of the launch. You will receive 10 printed copies. Just printing 150 copies of my first book and shipping costs were over $2,000.00!
10. MARKETING STRATEGY
Your podcast episode will appear on the Miracles and Wonders website and it will appear on Spotify and Google. The marketing strategy will take care of getting the podcast to major podcast distributors.
Your story will be promoted with the Creative Wonders Communications e-news – our email lists goes out to approximately 1000 people who we have done business with over the years.
12. P.R. KIT, PRESS RELEASE.
Creative Wonders Cmns will write and layout a professional press release template for our collective use.
13. SOCIAL MEDIA TECHNICAL PERSON WILL OVER SEE THE LIVE 2 HOUR FACEBOOK LAUNCH.
I will host a Live Facebook event to launch the book. You will be interviewed online at that event.
14. A LIVE 2 HOUR FACEBOOK LAUNCH FOR THE BOOK.
I will create a launch program agenda and plan a Live Facebook event to launch the book. You will be interviewed online at that event.
15. PROMOTIONAL PRIZES AT THE LAUNCH
During the last collaborative book online launch, we gave away over $500.00 in prizes to people who attended the launches in their choice of books or inspirational cards.
16. PODCAST GUEST.
You will be interviewed on my podcast MIRACLES and WONDERS to discuss your story. You will receive a link to the interview to promote the book on your website.
The book will be sold online at the Miracles and Wonders shop, dianelundmiracles website and on Amazon Canada and the US.
18. PROMOTE THE BOOK ON YOUR WEBSITE AND KEEP THE MONEY YOU MAKE.
You can also put the book on your website and sell it for the amount you determine and keep any money you make.
19. MONTHLY MEETINGS TO BUILD A COMMUNITY OF MIRACLE MINDED PEOPLE!
We will meet once a month for one hour to discuss where we are in the book process. We will determine the dates and times as a group. We want your input during the process. Attendance is mandatory. It is a way for everyone to stay on the same page as we go through the process. It is one more way I am moving from ME to WE. I want to build a Miracle Minded Community to help the world. Doing collaborative books is one arm of this decision. The last collaborative book I produced took six months from beginning to end. I would say the next book will take about the same amount of time.
20. FORMAT, COST, TIMING.
This collaborative book will have 15 stories in it. Each author will pay: $5500.00 for all of the services listed above. You can pay everything up front and save $500.00 or you can pay monthly. This is a fraction of the cost I spent on my solo books. Plus, you don’t have to figure out the publishing, printing, promoting – Miracles and Wonders is here to lead you through that process.
Miracles and Wonders will support you every step of the way and together we will create a professional bestselling book which you can use to promote yourself, your business and perhaps even your desire to be a speaker.
