Some Published Gifts For You This Week
…because you deserve it – and thanks!
Hi there ,
Four new books, just published, all on a special download page just for you. Even made this open to everyone, so they can start finding this site and all these books.
It was certainly fun to publish in four different genres in two weeks…
1) Why You Got All that Stuff
This last week, I got inspired and cranked out four overlong essays, which then became a book. The core idea here ended up explaining why we collect all this “stuff” in our lives. It started out with an examination of how we consider stuff to be symbols that would help us on our “hero’s journey”, and how marketers push us to buy our own version that we can take home and keep there.
It ended up explaining why we have problems doing our spring cleaning and why de-cluttering is such a chore.
The upside of it is that this cam help us start manifesting more prosperity and attaining your goals easier.
It’s just a model for you to examine and see whether it will work for you or not.
This is going to be posted as a series of articles on the site, but it’s already published as a book. There’s a free copy for you just below…
2) Backwards Book Publishing: Save Time, Earn More, Work Less.
For those of you who are thinking of writing your own books, and maybe creating courses to go along with them, this book tells you how building the course is the fastest route to having an ebook, paperback, hardback, audiobook, and course all in one fell swoop. Faster, easier, more efficient than any other form of writing.
This also goes back to the three ways of learning: studying as a student, teaching students, and writing textbooks for teachers. It’s said that the most effective way to really learn a subject is to teach it. Writing a course is part of that approach.
So this is highly recommended for anyone who really wants to learn a subject.
3) Fiction: When the Dreamer Dreamed.
This is a book I wrote in 2010 as part of NaNoWriMo and never got around to publishing. But I found a new book outlet this week that only does fiction, so I polished it up, put a new cover on it, and created a pen name.
At just over 50K words, it’s more a novella (or so I’m told) but it’s over 200 words in print. Amazon has it as ebook and should also have it in paperback by the time you get this (so if you want to leave a review…)
It should be a fun read, won’t take all that long. Lots of paranormal stuff you’re used to from me.
4) And Then The Murders Began
Almost forgot this one. It’s a fun little mashup of the first line (or so) from the top 100 most popular books on Gutenberg.org along with the following sentence: “And then the murders began.” Not my idea, but it was a fun book to create. It makes even the most dull-starting classic hilarious…
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, ‘and what is the use of a book,’ thought Alice ‘without pictures or conversations?’
And then the murders began.
Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland, By Lewis Carroll
Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her.
And then the murders began.
Emma, by Jane Austen
Enjoy. (Makes a nice present…)
Again, if you like these books (or any others I’ve published) go ahead and leave a review on Amazon so other people can find them.
Where To From Here
I’m wrapping up stuff in order to focus more narrowly on one thing at a time.
a. The Writing and Publishing materials are basically wrapped with that book above. I’ve turned the list opt-in over into a single page where they can get downloads of all the books and references in this area. Sure, they could all be courses, but mostly I need to find someone who wants to do the interviews and compilation on these to bring them to life (for a hefty split of the income) so let me know if you’re interested…
b. I do have a book nagging at me about Copywriting, but this has more use than just self-publishing. And it should be a course, actually. There’s a series of over a dozen marketing books that have all been published a couple of years ago. Just need to wrap these all up and get them into shape so people can use them.
This will be a treatment like the Writing & Publishing material, where it just has ready access to all the materials. If they become courses, then they’ll wind up on Udemy first, and then all the e-course marketplaces.
c. Then I go flat out on creating that course series I’ve been working towards for the past year.
This will be courses for all the Strangest Secret Library books, as well as that recording, and also Make Yourself Great Again. The courses will be on Udemy and everywhere.
And there are plans after than, but those are months away and will change. Just stay tuned to see the inspired concepts which bubble up during the mean time.
Until next time,
