Unique Opportunity to become a Published Author (by June 27th, 2017!)

Just like these people here...

book-club_cropped

This is a picture from one of my book clubs (as they get lovingly called by the Authors) from last year - with books in hand!

Although one or two of the books went on to look slightly different to the ones pictured, all of the Authors present brought with them a manuscript to work with.

They completed the course and succeeded where millions of others have failed before them. They actually wrote their book and are now an AUTHORITY in their niche!

 

Would you like this to be you?

'Damian's isn't your average writing course because he arrives with such a rich and varied tapestry of talents. He's a successful published writer himself — so none of that "those who can do, those who can't teach" thing going on here — and he also draws extensively on his experience as a personal and business coach to pretty much second-guess you on every imaginable excuse you can dredge up and then shows you how to disarm your demons. His outstanding achievements with previous students say it all and, coming from a writing and editing background, I recommend Damian without hesitation for his skill, commitment, knowledge, professionalism, and sheer boundless enthusiasm. Just do it!' - Eugenie Verney, former Fleet Street Journalist

Perhaps you've been thinking about writing a book or perhaps you've already started one. Perhaps your 'unfinished manuscript' has been sitting on a hard-drive somewhere waiting for the right time to complete itself(!).

Well, now's the time to get it out, dust it off and complete it... by June 27th, 2017!

The fastest and most effective way to get your message out into the world is to write a book about it. And yet, how many books have remained in the heads of the would-be writer, to never see the light of day?

How many millions of books (some of which were best-sellers and World changers) have never been read because they stayed as a 'good idea'... Never to be enjoyed, shared or loved?

DON'T LET YOURS BE ONE OF THEM!

“The key to writing a book is to ‘Just Write!’ Writing is one thing that you cannot get worse at by doing it.”

Brian Tracey

My book writing course is one of the most successful and productive courses I have ever run at the Entrepreneurs Circle (correct, no apostrophe).

Although it was only a one-day course, I always made sure the Authors were supported to continue on their quest to write and release their books... which is where the idea for this course came from.

Well now I'm revving it up and making this course a 90 day spectacular with daily (yes, daily!) accountability, weekly training webinars, regular weekly conference call check-ins for the Authors, a Private Facebook Group to help each other on your writer's journey, special guest interviews, and exclusive opportunities to further your writing career with speaker agency and publishing company joint ventures!

In fact, we're all set up to get that book of yours into your very own hands by June 27th, 2017!

"I had always wanted to write a book and for years had some words on my PC just sitting there. The bit that always stumped me was not the writing but the fear of the process - once you had the words, then what did you do? This led to complete inaction, some half decent blogs and a word file but no book. Damian's course opened with 'what's holding you back?' and I remember his response to my fear of the process...'don't worry about that, that's the easy bit'! So, with a clear deadline, I began turning a few musings into a first draft against the peer pressure of our group. My book was delivered directly to the session by the postman - I had not even seen it, but heh, I had a book! It was then time for an edit, some moments of 'wow, is this really happening, I have written a book' and finally a launch on February 16 via Amazon. The book now sells internationally, regularly rates as 5 stars on Amazon and is stocked in university libraries. It's been reviewed by the Institute of Leadership and Management with 5* and I've been featured in People Management Magazine. None of this would have happened without Damian. Thank you so much...!" - Sue Willcock

Why might you want to write a book?

  • To set yourself up as an authority/expert
  • To share an idea or just tell a story
  • As a business card
  • To help you in your career
  • To become a speaker
  • Heaven forbid... to make some money (it is possible, and I'll show you how)
  • To feel alive
  • To make a dent on the Universe
  • To change the World for the better
  • To leave a legacy

“For better or for worse, people judge you on whether or not you have a book out.”

Imagine how it's going to feel to launch your book in June!

Just like Mark Chase here at his book launch... and yes, that is Jeff Beck in the pictures but that's a whole other story!

[WARNING: AS PART OF THIS BOOK CLUB, SERIOUSLY WEIRD AND WONDERFUL THINGS WILL START HAPPENING TO YOU AS A RESULT OF BEING SURROUNDED BY A GROUP OF AUTHORS WHO ARE CREATING SOMETHING SPECIAL TO HELP OTHERS]

“A great idea means diddly-squat without execution... so stop talking about it and JFDI!”

Damian Mark Smyth

Why this date?

OK, OK... I like it so far... but what's with this June 27th stuff?

You need a deadline to get your book completed. So why not this one? It's over three months away, so it's absolutely doable.

There's going to be a big group of us on June 27th with books in our hands meeting up for the next stage at our publishers in Northampton.

Imagine how good that is going to feel to have completed your book and being able to position yourself as an Authority in your niche.

Plus, you never know where it might lead...

“I’ve already done this course once and I’m coming back to do it again! As soon as Damian mentioned that he was restarting his book writing course, I was interested. When he told me what was in it, with the daily accountability, weekly check-ins and minimum writing requirements, that was it - I signed up immediately (and I don’t think he had even finished writing the sales page yet!). That’s how good this course is and I simply didn’t want to miss out…!”
