Michelle Borquez 13-Time Author on HOW to Get Your Book Writing Done and to the Editor for Publishing

About Michelle Borquez

Finally, after five years of pursuing my own healing and restoration and wanting to see other women and men set free from the bondage that can keep us from walking out our purpose and destiny, I authored “Overcoming Seven Deadly Emotions” released September 2008! I founded Shine Magazine in 1999 and was Editor-in-Chief for eight years. The magazine was birthed out of my passion to see a women’s publication that had fashion, travel, health, focusing on women’s issues, all from a Christian world view and done with class and excellence. It was a joy to interview such amazing women and men as, First Lady Laura Bush, Kurt Warner, Delilah, Chuck and Gena Norris, and many more over the years.

“Michelle Borquez’s book is a journey that will change the way you think, feel, and believe.” 

Monica Crowley, Fox News Political and International Affairs Analyst and radio host of The Monica Crowley Show 

My passion is people, and seeing them overcome and be free from whatever is keeping them from fulfilling Gods plan and purpose. As long as I am on this earth I will give my energy to whatever I feel can help in making a difference in my life, my children’s lives, and people’s lives. This is me. I am driven for this cause! At the same time I love to have fun and live life. I tell my kids “everything in moderation except for God” (except for illegal stuff of course LOL). When it comes to God we get “God Crazy”!

I enjoy life and feel God gave us music to dance, and a voice to rejoice and sing. I think we can easily take ourselves way to serious and when I get too serious I try to sit back and laugh at myself, or the situation, and remember life is short. I spent too many years pretending to have it all together, to have all the answers, only to find out none of it is true. What I do know is true and real, is my love for Jesus and His POWERFUL Word, my friends, and my family. Life is short. Get over yourself because it is not about you, or me, but about giving, loving, trusting, being, laughing, dying to our own selfish, selfish nature and getting over pride and what “we” think we have to have. Life when challenged, when interrupted, suddenly is reduced to God, a few faithful friends and hopefully a family who loves you unconditionally.

Michelle likes to say, 

“Welcome to my crazy world filled with everything from cooking to preaching, singing to dancing, family to romance, city life to the country life. I love my life and all that it is.  

Join me right here as I share with you sweet morsels of truth, feature stories from famous and not-so- famous but yet fabulous people with success stories that will make you go “huh” or “wow” or “c’mon” and move you to tears in the process.

It’s gonna get crazy up in here with fabulouso food, fierce faith, cool fashion, and fantastic fun with some awesome people!  I’ve spent my life building bridges, creating on canvases with colorful broad strokes, thus my very diverse areas of interest and life-giving heart to give back with sheer love and excitement.”

Dallas Teen Launches New Book The Boomerang Effect Author Malachi Walker Published by Beyond Publishing

Dallas Teen Launches Book Inspiring Positivity After Sports Injury -The Boomerang Effect is the Result of 13-Year Old Malachi Walker’s Entrepreneurial Author Re-Invention

A Sports Injury Becomes Catalyst for Book and Business Launch. New Book The Boomerang Effect Launching Wednesday at Intelligent Millionaires Network, Dallas. Original Story on PRWeb.com 6/26/18 Dallas Texas written by M3 New Media for Beyond Publishing, Dallas, TX


Home-schooled teen Malachi Walker had plenty of free time on his hands after a painful sports injury forced him to sit at home for two seasons. As a starter, Walker was not accustomed to sitting out games after working hard to make the FC Dallas Select soccer team, the injury was a major setback to him psychologically and emotionally. It was the main thing he had going for him, as his family had only recently moved to Dallas from Tennessee, so the injury initially had him down and disappointed. Walker decided rather to invest in himself and his personal development than to become bitter about his circumstances. Walker decided to create something positive that could propel him, and others around him, forward. That something is his new book, speaking career and YouTube channel. The message and the metaphor have a Boomerang as the main talking point.

Author Malachi Walker The Boomerang Effect Book Beyond Publishing

Author Malachi Walker The Boomerang Effect

While home sidelined and not able to play sports the Dallas teen began following young Entrepreneurs on YouTube that inspired him to follow his dream and pursue and fund his passion. Not being able to compete or even practice was disappointing and almost debilitating at first but Walker decided to turn things around for the better. The result, the launch of The Boomerang Effect this Wednesday night in Farmer’s Branch at Brookhaven Country Club.

Initial Endorsements have been coming in from around the US and notable endorsements include Clint Gresham, Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl XLVIII Champion, International Speaker and Best-Selling Author of “Becoming: Loving the Process to Wholeness,” who has written the Foreword, JT Foxx, The World’s #1 Wealth Coach, who calls Malachi, “The Next JT Foxx!” and local Dallas Entrepreneur, Joaquin Calbazana, “When I first read The Boomerang Effect I said, ‘WOW, a 13-year old wrote this? I wish I had his advice 10 years ago when I started my businesses!”

Malachi’s family is very competitive, dad played college football and ran track, mom grew up in Taiwan and owns her own business and older sister, Lyric, is a Level 10 gymnast with Texas Dreams Gymnastics at age 14, a two-time Junior Olympic Nationals qualifier, a two-time USAG All-Around Level 10 Texas State Champion and a two-time USAG Level 10 Regional Champion.

The young Walker is no stranger to Entrepreneurship either, growing up in his parent’s home. His dad, Charlie Walker, is a successful businessman, investor and servant leader. His mom, Christina Walker, is a Vocal Performance Coach who coaches Keynote Speakers, Professional Communicators, Singers and Actors is the author of 2 books and recently shared the stage with John Travolta, 50 Cent, Calvin Klein and Randi Zuckerberg.

Not to be out done, Malachi is starting to make a name for himself, not only from his YouTube channel and his book, but also with his speaking in the DFW area. Recently, Malachi spoke to his teen peers at Legendary Youth, the youth ministry of Covenant Church in Carrollton and at the Intelligent Millionaires Network Dallas, meeting TV Producer, TV Personality and Serial Entrepreneur, Tommy Habeeb. Malachi was asked to speak from the stage during the strategy session and shared points from his book, The Boomerang Effect.

When asked if he knew writing the book would open up speaking opportunities Walker says, “The book really is written as a practical life resource and the fact that it has lots of cool graphics, bullet points and amazing takeaways sets it up for a powerful keynote talk or workshop, so no, I’m not really surprised, in fact I’ve been getting some positive feedback from other groups asking me if I could come share my story.”

“We are very excited about having The Boomerang Effect available for bookstore pickup and global distribution and the timing couldn’t be more perfect,” says Beyond Publishing CEO, Michael D. Butler.

“There is a huge uptick in Kid CEO, Personal Development and Faith Based Entrepreneurship genres and this book has all of the ingredients we look for in a successful book. There are some scripture quotations and positivity that give the reader insight into the author’s beliefs but it’s not a religious book. It is filled with practical “how-to” steps that make it marketable in multiple channels. The team at Beyond Publishing is very excited to add The Boomerang Effect to it’s growing list of quality books, especially books by young authors,” says Dallas based Beyond Publishing CEO, Michael D. Butler.

Beyond Publishing has had clients on CNN, Fox News, Dr. Phil, Tru TV, TLC, Disney, TMZ and other outlets. Butler went on to say, we are offering The Boomerang Effect ebook on Amazon for just $1.99 for one day only on Wednesday, June 27th to make it available to a larger world-wide audience, after that the price will go up. The print version will be available and shipped on July 4th.

Filled with practical calls to action and daily takeaways the reader is given the hands-on tools to shatter their glass ceiling and soar higher than they’ve ever imagined possible.

Here’s a glimpse at what the reader will find within the 200 pages of The Boomerang Effect:

Foreword By Clint Gresham Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl XLVIII Champion
Chapter 1 Get-Up or Give-Up?
Chapter 2 Boomerang Success Mindset
Chapter 3 Boomerang Mindset Teams

Chapter 5 Use the Excuse

Powerful New Book by Best-Selling Author Jody Paar Reveals the Hidden Secrets of Sex Trafficking in USA

In this New Best-Selling book B.O.S.S. Break Out Silent Soldier, Author Jody Paar reveals the deceit used in the luring of victims.

New York City, NY, May 28, 2018 (Newswire) -​​​​​​​In this traumatic roll-coaster true story ​of Jody Paar, best-selling author Jody Paar gives readers an inside glimpse of the underworld of sex trafficking right here in the United States. Jody reveals the deceit and tactics used to lure young girls in American small towns and cities.

Jody Paar is from a small town in Mississippi. She was the baby of the family and was supposed to be a boy but came out all girl. She sparkled from the moment she came into the world.

Author Jody Paar BOSS Break Out Silent Soldier Beyond Publishing

As a little girl Jody was always in her mom’s makeup and heels. “I will be a star one day,” she would say into her hairbrush. Jody always lit up a room and never met a stranger even as a child. She would talk to anyone, even if they wouldn’t talk to her. When she became a teenager, she began to rebel. The struggle of learning disabilities that she hid from everyone was starting to dim her light. She had no problem making friends and enjoyed her classmates, but never felt like she fit in. She was always the first to take up for someone being bullied. The only fight she ever got into was with a boy who was bullying her little cousin. Jody won. She was fearless as she confronted the bully even though she was smaller than he was. She stood tall for what she believed in. She was taught not to fight, but if you do have a purpose behind it and win. That message has stuck with Jody her whole life.

 

Jody was very sheltered growing up. She thought everyone around her lived a safe life like she did. Jody didn’t really know that evil existed, because it didn’t in her world. With hormones raging and thinking she knew it all Jody couldn’t wait to leave home. At the age of 18 Jody walked out of her safe home and discovered a dangerous world faster than she ever thought imaginable. She found herself running from a past that haunted her every move. She was face to face with the devil and her life would change forever.

 

Life happens, but we must go on. Jody did her best to act as a normal person day to day. Jody was no longer the outgoing person she was before. Every person she met she feared what they wanted with her. She was a good actress and smiled to hide the pain. The truth was inside she was so full of fear with every move she would make. She felt like a failure with little education and the stupid one in the room. The one good thing was it didn’t stop her from surviving. The show must go on and it did. Jody may not have had education, but she had something else. She has a personality that sparkles and a heart of gold.

 

How does a small-town girl with little education write a book? She just starts typing and before she knows it has written a 3-book series about her life in only two weeks. Jody has hidden for decades. She is now ready to share her story of her traumatic roller-coaster life. She spares no details as she goes deep into the darkness of the chains that held her captive.

author-jody-paar-beyond-publishing-sex-traffic-Michael-D-ButlerJody Paar will be releasing her new book May 31st, signing her new book and speaking at the New York International Book Expo and Book Con in New York City May 31st – June 1st, 2018 at Javits Center.

SUPPORTING QUOTE:

“Courage is a funny word when it means a single person stands in their own grace and glory. As a woman it has been a challenge to find my own voice and bravery, but well worth the journey. Jody Paar in her brave book B.O.S.S. sheds light and love in a dark and lonely place. It’s a must read for ALL of us as we support one another… a rising tide lifts ALL boats.”

Thank you, Jody —

SHOW TRANSCRIPT:

Michael: We just landed in Medford, Oregon.

Denise: Okay.

Michael: Benjamin’s boat used to be called Peace Train.

Denise: And, but wait.

Benjamin: Yeah, yeah.

Denise: The funniest part is that he – he said, “You guys look really excited to be here, what’s going on?”

Benjamin: Yeah, what? Yeah, yeah what’s going on, what’s happening here?

Denise: See, so what’s going on?

Michael: Can you bring your boat?

Denise: Yeah, can you bring–?

Benjamin: Well it was quite a while ago, I don’t have–

So what was the story?

Benjamin: Well the story was – I saw you guys in the airport, and I’m at the airport all the time. Some walk in there, somewhat excited during the Shakespeare festivals, coming in here and surprised. But rarely do I see people are so–

Denise: You’re all in.

Michael: I want you know how excited I am to be here, and to honor Renée Mollan-Masters tonight. She’s our guest of honor. And a year ago – if you would’ve talked to her, she wouldn’t have dreamed that this could happen the way it did. And so many miracles she can tell you about on how this project came together. And how this project was downloaded to her, and how she connected with Denise. They have a wonderful story to tell, and you’re going to be hearing bits and pieces of that story tonight.

But the beautiful thing about what we’re doing on the red carpet right now is we have new friends that we’re connecting with. And friends that we’re connecting with for life. And that’s really what it’s about. Being able to look at something differently, and ask the question, “Am I willing to listen to you? Am I willing to hear you? Am I willing to look at things differently?” And so tonight, Renée Mollan-Masters, we honor you and the story that was given to you called, The Peace Train. “Peace Train, A Love Story.” And it’s touching so many lives right now, and we know that this is just the beginning. And we want to give you a big applause right now.

Denise: And a toast, here, here!! A toast! Cheers!

SHOW TRANSCRIPT:

Renee: Great to meet everybody all in like 5 minutes.

I have, this is like–

This is like–

It’s like surreal.

Denise: It’s like, she said – when she got off the plane, she’s like, “I’m floating, I’m floating, take your time.”

Yuval: What do you think?

Renee: Very nice.

And it was kinda cool, huh?

Renee: Oh I love that.

Yuval: I got so much feedback, so many emails, and so many messages. And everything it’s…over the top. How people enjoy it, and how beautiful it was. But it was one comment that I sent to everybody. And it was from a French record producer, and he was also producer for NPR in the past. And he travelled the world. He’s a writer. His name is …………. And he wrote that he – beyond the music, he was so moved to see an Israeli and Arabic singers together —

Oh.

2 women sitting there.

Denise: It gives me the chills.

Yuval: And he wrote how – not only they sang together, they listened to each other.

Renee: Oh.

Yuval: They respected each other. They were working together.

Denise: Wow.

Yuval: And that was so moving.

Renee: Wow.

Yuval: And he said it was an opening of the heart.

Renee: Yeah.

Yuval: And the whole audience felt–

Renee: Yeah, yeah.

Yuval: So inspired by that. So this is the image of the album, “Unity of the Heart,” In Arabic. It’s 10 new songs. Some of them are in Arabic, some of them are in Hebrew.

Zara: My name’s Zara,

Denise: come and have some tea, this is Renée.

Renee: Hi Zara. Thank you for all your good work. You’ve really been great.

Yuval: Who are all our friends here, and how they are connected to–?

Renee: I will explain.

Yuval: The project?

Renee: I will explain. Well, about 2 years ago, I started writing the book. And I really only wrote the book because I wanted to do a film. So then, as I was writing the book, I got a software program for writing screenplays. And what I found out is I liked writing the screenplay more than the book. So I let editors fix the book. And a year ago – right now, today – I know exactly where I was. I just had gotten home from Houston, where I had taken a possibilities workshop. And I had a film. I didn’t know how to do it. And in March – I set a date of February 15th, I was going to start filming my film – a year, like 2018, I was going to start filming my film. The minute I made that commitment, Denise came into my life – magically. Then Craig came into my life.

Yuval: Yes, yes.

Renee: Magically. And Denise is the Executive Producer.

Yuval: Right.

Renee: And Craig and I are going to Co-direct it. And then Denise brought in Peter, and Peter was the one that helped us figure out how much money we were getting from the investors. And I thought, “I’ve got to get a music person.” So I kept Googling Israeli music people. Couldn’t get any hits. Then one day, I thought, “I’ll just do a Palestinian–” I did, and you came up — top, number one. So, and that’s how you got in here.

Craig: I remember actually the day that you, I think you found – you emailed me, and said, “What about this? What about this guy?” And I was like, “My gosh.” It’s like you couldn’t have asked for a better fit.

Yeah.

Renee: Zara is – has been working with Denise, and she does all these – all the graphics. All the beautiful graphics and everything you’ve seen.

Michael: We started this movement, it was downloaded to you. Where do you see it going next?

Renee: I think that everybody needs to put their seat belts on. Because I think this thing is going to go, I really do.

Michael: Well it’s what the world needs. I think it’s what the millennials are hungry for. They’re tired of the old kill and be killed, eye for an eye. They’re ready to lay down things, and they’re ready to give hugs. And they’re ready to do the friendship pods.

Renee: Yeah.

Michael: It’s revolutionary.

Absolutely. They’re ready.

Executive Producer of DOME Entertainment & CEO of Beyond Publishing Fly to Ashland OR – Podcast #2


In this Podcast episode #2 of Peace Train Movie, Executive Producer, Denise O’Brien of DOME Entertainment & CEO of Beyond Publishing, Michael D. Butler Fly to Ashland OR Podcast 2

On the flight Michael asks Denise, “What inspired you most about The Peace Train Movie Project?”

http://PeaceTrainMovie.com

SHOW TRANSCRIPT:

Michael: Hey friends, Michael Butler. I’m here with Denise O’Brien with DOME Entertainment – the Executive Producer of Peace Train Movie, working in conjunction with Reality Productions. We’re flying to Medford, Oregon, and, Denise, “Peace Train,” what was it about, “Peace Train,” that made you want to work with Renée and Reality?
Denise: Wow, well, it was actually Renée, that’s who I love, Renée. She has a magical quality about her. She has a spirituality that attracts everybody. And she attracted me with the project. Because I do believe that we can create peace using media. And my dream is always to use my talents and gifts that God gave me, to help other people. And I find that the opportunity to work on, “Peace Train Movie,” is – for me, it’s a spiritual experience. Because we’re talking about bringing peace. We’re talking about children. I love working with children, and I have three children – I’m the mother of three. So anything I can do to bring peace for the future generations, I’m all about it.”

Michael: We were just sitting here talking about – you posted the other day, back in your days at LMU Film and Journalism school, an interview.

Denise: Yes.

Michael: Then we’re talking about your time at NBC. So you’ve been, you’ve been in the city – you know the city, you’ve done thousands of red carpet events. We’re flying to the big metropolis.

Denise: I haven’t – I haven’t, I haven’t DONE – but I’ve attended thousands of red carpet events. But many, many–

Michael: You know me, always the marketer.

Denise: Yes, thank you. Want to make sure it’s true. Produced hundreds and hundreds of red carpet events.

Michael: Yeah.

Denise: But not thousands, but–

Michael: Ok, we’re going to put that in the fine print down below.

Denise: Okay, alright.

Michael: But I’m so excited to be partnering with you on this. We’re flying to Medford.

Denise: My phone, my phone is ringing when we’re on a plane! Now that’s a new one.

Michael: And the gala red carpet event is tomorrow night in Ashland, Oregon, and–

Denise: Yes.

Michael: And here in a bit, we’re going to be getting off the plane. And it’s going to be a whirlwind three days.

Denise: It is a whirlwind. I’m warm right now. I’m worried about being cold when I get there – I have two jackets on my lap.

Michael: You’re prepared. Renée’s prepared, we’re prepared. Everybody’s coming out for the red carpet event.

Denise: That’s right. We’re so excited to be bringing – I mean, come on – like we’re bringing Hollywood to Medford, Oregon. Well actually, Ashland. I haven’t been there yet, so I don’t know if they’re ready for us. But I had to tone down my attire. I didn’t bring anything too glitzy, and I also didn’t bring any of my really glitzy earrings.

Michael: Yeah, you do like to glam up, don’t you?

Denise: Don’t I look casual/ I mean–

Michael: Very casual. I was surprised, I was surprised.

Denise: This is a new look for me. I didn’t have my sequined hat on, but I wanted to pack it, I really did. But I wanted, I wanted them to welcome us – not be turned off by the Hollywood glitz.

Michael: Yeah.

Denise: So this is a very subdued DOME Entertainment event.

Michael: Well, I’m excited about the trip to Israel. You’re filming in Israel next year.

Denise: Yes.

Michael: What’s the next step with everything?

Denise: Well, gosh – Israel, it’s going to be– I mean, I’ve been watching the news–

Michael: Yeah.

Denise: It’s a crazy life, what we’re doing. But we’re looking at really making the Peace Train movement a worldwide opportunity for people to join in. Not just to be a part of the Peace Train, but to bring – really, truly bring peace. And the way that that happens is – one person at a time. And you – being the expert, and I being the expert in social media – I know that we can make that happen. It’s exciting when 1 plus 1 equals 3. And the synergy of what we’re doing. And I know Renée feels that. She calls us her spark plugs. So hey – spark plug!

We’re going to plug into the world, and create some exciting opportunities for everybody.

Michael: We are. We’re going to ask you to like and share and comment on this video, so other people can find out about the Peace Train movement, as we take off–

Denise: That’s right.

Michael: As we take off from LAX to Israel to Medford–

Denise: Goodbye LA, on the way to Oregon.

Michael: And the world.

Denise: And goodbye palm trees. But we have palm trees tonight! We ordered palm trees, just to– We flew in the palm trees just for the event.

Michael: That’s what I’m talking about.

Denise: Make it happen.

Peace Train Movie is a book, a movie and a movement! Stay tuned for more!

Peace Train A Love Story, The Book & Movie theme: Friendship Pods – Podcast #1

As we move from November into December, we at Peace Train Movie are happy to introduce the theme, message and mission of “Peace Train, A Love Story.”

In our first podcast, Executive Producer Denise O’Brien introduces: Writer, Director & Producer Renée Mollan-Masters in Ashland, Oregon, where she wrote the book manuscript and created the movie screenplay.

PeaceTrainMovie.com

SHOW TRANSCRIPT:

Denise: Hi everyone, it’s Denise O’Brien with DOME Entertainment. I have the honor and the privilege to be here today in the home of author, Renée Mollan-Masters, the author of the beautiful new story coming out, “Peace Train, A Love Story.”

And what I love about the love story is that, within the movie and the book, is an opportunity for forgiveness, for understanding – and there’s actually a tool that you’ve created in the book that I do believe has the possibility of really bringing more peace to the world within families. And it’s called a Friendship Pod. And I would love for you to share with our audience today a little bit about the friendship pod and how it came about. Please give us just a brief description of how it works. What’s the magic behind the Friendship Pod?

Renée: Well, the Friendship Pod is, is something that – it’s not anything new, – but it’s very effective. It’s where 2 or 6 people sit with one another, and everybody gets two minutes to share what’s important to them. And there can be no cross-talking. So it goes around the circle. And what happens when that occurs – when somebody actually gets to share what’s important, and people will listen and receive it – a connection takes place.

And if – after that Friendship Pod is done, and all these connections are made – if that group will stand up and go do something different, like have a treat or whatever, but not talk about what happened in the pod, any problem that was happening, any disconnect that was happening with the people that were in the pod – it will evaporate. And you may say, “Well how could that be? They didn’t discuss the problem, they didn’t come to a resolution.” No. And they didn’t use their heads to do it.

What I believe happens, is that when you’re in a Friendship Pod and you literally listen to the person talk about what’s important to them – a connection is made. And that connection is love. For a better word, or God. And when that energy is present – whatever angst exists between these two people, it will be resolved – and everybody will experience the resolution as a win. So it’s a win-win proposition.

Denise: You heard it here, a win-win proposition from Renée Mollan-Masters, the author of, “Peace Train, A Love Story.”

3 Tips To Help New and Veteran Authors Sell More Books

3 Sure Fire Tips To Heat Up Your Author Book Sales

 

So it’s Labor Day weekend and one of the best times of year to launch a new book. Here are 3 tips to get you started on the road to selling more books!

1) Start a new book, that’s right no better time to begin a new book than on a Holiday (of course do your research first to see if there is demand for your book and how many people have already written on your topic) (Published Labor Day weekend 9/3/17)

2) Do a Facebook LIVE at the family BBQ, this is always fun, it seems Facebook LIVES and Instagram lives that involve fire, food, smoke and holidays get more traction (maybe make it a behind the scenes of your interesting family, I’m sure they won’t mind you filming the family event since after all they are supportive of your book plans right? To clarify, by smoke and fire I don’t mean let uncle Louie blow cigar smoke in your face this time.)

3) Back to writing. Tweet us some pics of your dog watching you pound it out at the computer giving you the, “are there anymore leftovers from the BBQ look?” We love the “Behind the Scenes” Director’s cut of your “Why I wrote the Book” from the green room especially on Holidays! Nothing says “I’M SERIOUS” and holds an author accountable to their tribe like coming out of the closet with the new book title on a HOLIDAY!!!

Enjoy Your Labor Day!!! Who knows…..I just might be showing up in your Facebook feed tomorrow and I’ll for sure be watching for yours!

Cornell Graduate Author Taylor Scott Launches BALLGAMES TO BOARDROOMS Business Book Beyond Publishing

Cornell Graduate, Taylor Scott, Launches Highly Acclaimed New Book, Ballgames To Boardrooms: Leadership, Business & Life Lessons From Our Coaches We Never Knew We Needed

In Ballgames To Boardrooms, Author Taylor Scott Offers Timeless Truths With Personal Applications For Millennials, Gen X-ers, and even Baby Boomers, On Obtaining Career Satisfaction In the Workplace For Employees And Managers. Los Angeles Publisher, Beyond Publishing Is Making Ballgames To Boardrooms Available Online And Everywhere August 15th In Business And Economics, Hospitality, Travel And Tourism, Mentoring And Coaching, Self-Help And Communication And Social Skills Categories.

In Ballgames To Boardrooms the reader will feel encouraged as they discover refreshing perspective for transforming their frustrating world at work into something more exciting and fulfilling.
Using an ongoing sports metaphor, the author ties in the team work and skills learned from our coaches, and he applies it to achieving satisfaction and fulfillment in one’s career as an employee, manager, and especially those aspiring to become a manager or an executive one day.
Author, Taylor Scott, shows that employees can have a level of satisfaction, fulfillment, and joy in their corporate world and experience the professional life they’ve always wanted.
With each page, all 188 pages, the reader will be encouraged to grow professionally and personally, becoming a more mature, happy person who looks forward to every day rather than dreading it. Being able to see meaning and purpose in our work requires looking beyond what Taylor calls the “Corporate Corporateness” as he unpacks the lessons from coaches readers never knew they needed in order to experience a greater sense of meaning, fulfillment and faith in the midst of their corporate grind.
The author asks, “Remember that childhood faith when you’d go out and play your sport with reckless abandon? How different that is now from today’s corporate world of worry, doubt, anxiety and feelings of inferiority every day when you go to work. You don’t have to feel lost anymore. You can have a level of satisfaction, fulfillment, and joy in your corporate world and experience the professional life you always wanted.”
The game-changing mindset from Taylor Scott is to simply do the following, as he sums up the five parts to the inspirational book, “So, practice the future today. “Play” (work) hard, listen to your own coaches, have fun, and unleash compassion. You‘ll transform your boring job into meaningful work, fulfillment, inevitable success, and most importantly, you‘ll enjoy the ride.”
Inside the pages of Ballgames To Boardrooms Mr. Scott breaks it down like this:

Part One – Practice the Future Today
Part Two – Listen to Coaches
Part Three – Play (Work) Hard
Part Four – Have Fun
Part Five – Unleash Compassion – Make the Extra Pass

The initial feedback and endorsements for Ballgames To Boardrooms has been rock solid including a moving Foreword, written by Mark Sanborn – NY Times Bestselling Author of The Fred Factor says, “Read this book for new ideas to make you a better leader.”

“Picking up Ballgames to Boardrooms is entering into a personal conversation with Taylor. He connects sports to real life, focusing on the corporate setting as a big part of life. The well-reasoned and well-articulated advice provides the sort of coaching we all need to be the sort of team players, coach, partner, friend, and person we sometimes lose sight of who we want to strive to be. Practical advice, and applicable wisdom, providing a guide to self-reflection to help you build your own potential. A book worth reading, and advice worth taking.” – Dr. Michael Struman, The Kenneth and Marjorie Blanchard Professor of Human Resources – Cornell University.

“Taylor Scott has blended faith, sports, entertaining stories, and uncommon wisdom to create a book that not only points the way for you to be more successful in life, you will become a better, happier, and more fulfilled person in the process.” – Mark Youngblood, CEO of Inner Mastery, Inc. and author of Dear Human, Master Your Emotions
“Ballgames to Boardrooms is a playbook for true professionals. It encourages readers to find their passion, believe in it, and never lose sight of the bigger picture.” – Jennifer Ridgley, Senior Director of Communications – Pittsburgh Penguins

“Taylor Scott has brilliantly packaged a way forward for Millennials and leaders of Millennials to not only coexist in Corporate America, but to also transform menial jobs into meaningful work. If you loved playing sports as a kid or even as an adult, but find yourself stuck in a career hamster wheel, this book is for you. Prepare to reignite the child-like faith you had back then, realizing actionable steps toward new realms of happiness and success today.” – Eric Chester – Bestselling Author of On Fire At Work: How Great Companies Ignite Passion in Their People Without Burning Them Out, Award Winning Keynote Speaker, and the Founder of the Center for Work Ethic Development.
“It’s no surprise to me that Taylor wrote a book to share his own journey and a series of inspirational experiences that shaped his success. He has a “can do” attitude and continuous improvement mindset. Taylor recognizes that the most gifted leaders know when to follow, and that our best teachers are at the same time curious students, always learning and passing the knowledge along by paying it forward. Consider his first book as a solid primer, a tool kit of simple but effective lessons to sharpen your game.” – Randy A. Garfield, Former President Walt Disney Travel Company and Executive Vice President Worldwide Sales and Travel Operations, Disney Destinations

“Combining powerful words of wisdom from his own life coaches with poignant moments from a career shaped by lessons learned from sports, Ballgames to Boardrooms is Taylor‘s personal guide to leading one‘s self, and one‘s teammates, to a richly-lived life. This is a book you want to read and then share with those on your team – both players and coaches. Double thumbs-up for this first effort by a young author with a lifetime of great ideas to share.” – Dr. Larry Ross, Bill & Anne France Distinguished Professor of Business – Florida Southern College

Beyond Publishing CEO, Michael D. Butler says, “We are very excited about Ballgames To Boardrooms and are getting great feedback from book distributors globally who want to carry it in their countries. As a way of introducing Taylor’s book to the market we are offering the E-Book. For the first 72 hours on Amazon for just $0.99 cents. All 188 pages of Ballgames To Boardrooms will be available as Taylor’s way of saying thank you for everyone’s support. He’s a giver, for sure, and readers will soon find that out when they read this book. August 16th is his Birthday, and he wants to gift it to new friends for only $0.99, so they can check it out and share it with their friends who might need a little encouragement or refreshing inspiration.” LINK: bit.ly/Ballgames2BoardroomsEBook

About Taylor Scott
Taylor’s passion for leadership began at a young age, growing up in Kentucky as a Point Guard on his high school basketball team. He learned the power of influence and persuasion, which all leaders require. Even though most people are good they don’t realize how good they can be.

He says, “As a leader in the Hospitality Industry, author, blogger, and speaker, my passion is in Leadership Development, Teamwork, and Personal Growth based on over fifteen years leading teams in various lines of business including Resort Operations, Travel Industry Sales, Loyalty Marketing, and Vacation Ownership.”

Like you, Taylor’s career has been up and down, filled with many peaks and valleys. Having worked through the effects of September 11th in 2001 and the economic crisis in 2008 and 2009, Taylor has stories of being hired, fired, and coached, praised, and celebrated over the years. He’s learned how to navigate through the good, bad, and in between of what he calls, “Corporate Corporateness” to achieve fulfillment at work and at home.

While he loves sports, hotels, resorts, and hospitality leadership, his true passion is writing, speaking, encouraging, and inspiring. Drawing on his faith in God and his personal experiences, he writes to connect with people, and reconnect them back to what makes them happy – having fun, being utilized for their special talents, achieving success, and growing into their full potential; both personally and professionally.

Taylor’s worked for notable brands such as Disney Parks and Resorts, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Wynn⎮Encore Las Vegas, Gaylord Hotels and Resorts, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, and Disney Vacation Club. He graduated with honors from Florida Southern College, in Lakeland, FL, earning a BS in Business Administration. Later in his career, he earned a Masters of Management in Hospitality from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Taylor currently resides in beautiful Dana Point, California with his wife, Jenna.

Children’s Author Serena Brown Travis Launching Perfect Penny Positive Children’s Books

Beyond Publishing Author Serena Brown Travis is Proud to Announce her New Perfect Penny Positive Children’s Book Series for Kids Book One Launching April 18 Full story by M3NewMedia on PRWeb 4.11.17

Destined to become a classic, The Perfect Penny Children’s Book Series launching Spring 2017 by Author Serena Brown Travis is designed to help children build up their self-esteem in spite of grim circumstances and ultimately change their otherwise doomed perspectives into a positive mindset. Daughter of renowned motivational speaker Les Brown, Serena strategically intertwines disappointment and defeat with messages of encouragement and inspiration.

 

“Perfect Penny is assisting me in helping spread positivity into the lives of children and adults. You’ll love the tenacity of Perfect Penny. We can all learn from her!” Les Brown

“I’ve always heard, ‘Evil prevails when good men and women do nothing.’ I’ve always wanted to launch a series of motivational books for children helping them to develop positive self-esteem and a renewed outlook on life. While adults can recognize when they need a push or a jolt of motivation, I think children need characters and storylines they can identify with. Along with many parents, I needed more resources and positive readings for my two children and the Positive Penny Series of books will give parents and children motivational tools and strategies from an early age,” says Author Serena Brown Travis, as she proudly continues her father’s legacy.

School counselors especially love how the books tackle stronger subjects including homelessness, absentee parenting, and hunger while finding a glimmer of hope in each story. Serena is well on her way to reaching her goal of having an impact on the lives of children with the first three books being released this spring.

 

The younger Brown, with Empowerment Products, the name of her company launching the Perfect Penny brand says, “I plan to launch as many inspirational books as possible. The first three books feature Perfect Penny with all of her heart touching childhood hilarity and authenticity. School counselors especially love how the books tackle stronger subjects including parental neglect, homelessness, and absentee parenting while finding a glimmer of hope in each story. The Perfect Penny Positive Words print version was released in February with the E-book releasing on April 18th is now available for pre-order on Amazon for $1.99. Serena Brown Travis will be on WCMH Columbus channel 4 NBC in April to tell more about why she wrote Perfect Penny.

 

There are a number of book signings and media interviews planned. For the latest signings, readings and interviews watch the Author’s website at BeyondPublishing.net/AuthorSerenaBrownTravis and for media inquiries email serenambrown@aol.com.

 

Perfect Penny Positive Words is the first in the Perfect Penny Book Series; Inspired by the stories of Earl Nightengale, Napoleon Hill, W. Clement Stone, Zig Ziglar, Les Brown and many other great names in the personal development and self-help space. The author, having grown up in the personal development movement, long before it went mainstream and before anyone knew of “The Secret” or the “Law of Attraction” is excited to bring The Perfect Penny Positive Book Series to the world and believes it to be the perfect time!

 

 

SERIES SYNOPSIS

Perfect Penny is a unique kid. Perfect Penny experiences hard times, disappointments, and bullying, but she is strong and resilient. Perfect Penny finds light in dark situations. It’s Penny’s innocence that helps her deal with and answer life’s tough questions. Perfect Penny’s positive perspective will lift you up and give you confidence to take on life.

 

Despite her humble start in life Penny finds the resources that empower her to overcome adversity and bring positivity to her life affecting all of those around her with optimism and hope. Perfect Penny is destined to become a classic series for children and a favorite for parents and grandparents for story time, bed time, play time or any time.

Serena Brown Travis says, “We’ve decided to make the first e-book available for $1.99 to give everyone a chance to see what the excitement is about. The vibrant illustrations, the well written story features Penny, who was born in a dumpster finding the tools she needs to not only cope but spread positivity with everyone around by accepting the fact that she was born for greatness.” Publisher Michael D. Butler with Beyond Publishing says, we’ve published a number of children’s books but we are most excited about this series because it has a deeper purpose and global appeal. Children all over the world will benefit from reading this book and we are excited about leveraging The Perfect Penny Series around the globe from Australia, India, Canada, the UK and everywhere. Penny’s infectious spirit rubs off on those around her and opens the door for book #2 Perfect Penny – It’s Not Over Until We Win and book #3 Perfect Penny – My Different World. Books #1 and #2 are available now and book #3 will be released soon.”

 

ENDORSEMENTS

 

“You will love the innocence of Perfect Penny Brown. She has some pretty tough circumstances to deal with and she seems to always find a positive spin to her story. I believe we are all like Perfect Penny. Life can deal us some major hits, but if we use optimism and faith like Perfect Penny, in the end, we will be okay. If we use our imaginations and never let our situations get us down, like Perfect Penny Brown, we would think life doesn’t seem so bad. I know Perfect Penny Brown’s questions all too well; why was I born in an abandoned building on a floor? Why did my mother give me away? Am I trash? We all question our circumstances, but like Perfect Penny, I imagined a new life for myself and I created it. I am super excited and proud of my youngest daughter, Serena Brown Travis, on the creation of this character and book series. This will help your children get a Perfect Penny Brown perspective on life and help you, the adult, to always find life’s silver linings!” Mamie’s Baby Boy, Les Brown www.LesBrown.com

 

“I wish I had this series of books when my children were younger…” Brittany T

 

“As an educator of 30 years I always look for books I can read my first graders after recess and during special times PERFECT PENNY is one of their favorite books. We need more books like “Perfect Penny” for our children and their parents.” Mrs. Sabrina Garcia

Author’s Dedication:

 

This book is dedicated to the many children and adults who never heard positive words before or after your name. It is dedicated to the folks who never received a wink, pat on the back, hi-five, smile, or hug of encouragement. Perfect Penny was created to remind you of your greatness, your beauty, and unlimited value. You are enough. You can do more than you could ever begin to imagine. You have greatness within. You are indeed perfect!

Create Your Own Inspiration – Get inspired & Make it Happen This Year!

Driving the 90 minutes from sunny southern California I could hardly believe I’d need chains for my Toyota Prius at Big Bear Lake and Mountain but oh did I! Not getting them on in time was a big mistake as I ended up stuck for about an hour.

Many authors get stuck and some just give up entirely on their dream of being a published author and getting their book out to the world. Sometimes all that is need is to step back, take a breath, put on the chains and start driving again to the top of the mountain. The best views can only be seen with a change of perspective and the view from the top always enlightens and motivates us to how close we are to the goal.

This is one reason a new brand, book or author can quickly dominate a local niche or a keyword topic and start trending on Twitter.

Twitter is like the broad side of a funnel as you attract leads and potential customer’s and book readers. The entire goal of Twitter is to create online buzz and begin conversations about your book, business and brand!

Authors – When is the Best Time of Year to Launch Your Book?

Are you a Fiction or a Non-Fiction Author?

Gone are the days of throwing your book up on a bookstore retail shelf and become an overnight instant best selling sensation are long over, unless of course someone in hollywood buys your story and makes a movie (sure that can help)

Book publishing has become a noisy industry. With over one million new isbn’s (International Standard Book Numbers issued in the USA alone each year according to Bowker.com) it’s getting harder and harder for the new author to get their message, cause and book noticed. So the timing of a book launch could not be more critical than ever in this “Post-Border’s” era we are in called the digital age.

Authors ask me all the time: “When is the best time of year to launch my book?”

The answer is: That really depends. It doesn’t matter fully if it is fiction or non-fiction or what genre your book is.

When it comes to launch your book – Some questions to ask yourself are:

  1. What is your Klout Score?
  2. How engaged is your social media tribe?
  3. How big is your email list?
  4. How responsive is your email list?
  5. What is your conversion rate?
  6. How many joint venture partners do you have?
  7. Are you a speaker?
  8. How many speaking gigs do you have scheduled for the next 12 months?
  9. How active is your Author YouTube channel?
  10. Do you have an active PR (Public Relations campaign scheduled?)

There is a science to launch your book effectively.

It really is a mathematical algorithm. Leveraging the social graph, seeing your content go viral, getting other talking about your, leveraging Google trends, etc…Stay tuned for more, next week we talk about leveraging movies in Hollywood to strategically time your book release. I’m a big fan of a system our team created around the triple push book launch that involves the strategic release of your e-book, pre-release of your print book advance reader copy and the global distribution of your second edition print copy into book stores, libraries and multiple distribution outlets. Reach out to us at the contact number below and let’s discuss how that would look with your book launch.

Authors – Will Getting Your Book into Bookstores Guarantee Book Sales?

Many a new and veteran author has asked: “Will getting my book into bookstores increase my book sales?

Over the past decade I’ve heard hundreds of authors say, “If I could just get my book in the bookstore I know I could sell books.”

In reality, the retail brick and mortar bookstores might very well be THE WORST place to sell your books as an author. The reason for this is simple: YOUR BUYER HAS MOVED!

Best-Selling-Author-Post-Border-Era-Amazon

The year was 2007 and that was the year that Amazon announced Online books outsold retail books. The Internet, like the printing press was creating a revolution in opportunity and the way books had been distributed for decades.

As an author, the ways to capitalize on this trend of effective book distribution in a ‘post-Borders’ era multiplying.

1.) AUTHORS, FICTION AND NON-FICTION, CAN NOW LEVERAGE SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE INTERNET TO BUILD A ‘TRIBE’ OF LOYAL FANS, FOLLOWERS AND FRIENDS WHO HAVE AN INTEREST IN THE AUTHOR’S TOPIC AND BE MORE LIKELY TO BUY THE BOOK WHEN IT RELEASES.

2.) Speakers who use the stage to sell books at the ‘back of room’ can add extra value to their audiences and revenue for their bottom line with a print book about their topic of expertise.

3.) COMPANIES, BRANDS AND AUTHORS CAN DEPLOY A BOOK SERIES RELEASE STRATEGY TO ESTABLISH CREDIBILITY AS THEY LEVERAGE INTO NEW AND EXISTING VERTICALS.

Savvy authors recognize that while selling books can be a lucrative proposition, it does require a lot of work and does not happen automatically. Unless an author already has a large engaged tribe of loyal fans it can be an uphill journey of several years and multiple stages to sell fifteen thousand books. Many authors see their book launch as a marketing strategy and expense to; maintain and educate existing customers thereby improving long-term customer retention and to improve the customer acquisition process thereby making a book one of the greatesT marketing tools in their arsenal for business development.

The opportunities to capitalize on and monetize with books are as limitless as ones imagination.

Building an Online presence is the #1 strategy for becoming a Best Seller.

Pluses for getting your book into bookstores:

1.) More impressions and visibility
2.) Increased book sells (you hope)
3.) Possibility of book signings at the bookstore

Downside of getting your book into bookstores:

1.) Decreased profit margins
2.) Returns (buy backs)
3.) Your competing with similar books in your genre that are right next to your book

Book Selling Tip Helps Authors Generate 20% More Revenue in Book Sales

Authors who want to reach Best Seller Status can sell more books by following sound practical business advice. Someone once said, “Success leaves clues.”

It’s no secret that the book selling system protocols of yester year no longer work today. But there are some tried and true rock solid tips that will give the new and veteran author the market traction they need to reach Best Seller Status.

At the end of the day it comes down to getting others talking about your book.

It’s not enough for the author alone to be talking about their book.

It is necessary to get other readers and particularly influencers talking about your topic, your book and your platform as a new author.

In this video I talk about the power of leveraging the Acknowledgments page in your book. While going though the acknowledgments page in my personal book shelf I have noticed a decline in the amount of gratitude over the past several years and how the acknowledgments pages have actually been shrinking or don’t even exist in many of the newer books that are being published and self published.

It will benefit the author greatly to include this section as a complete stand alone space just like giving it it’s own chapter and respect and space.

  • By including people’s names and even short descriptions of how they have helped you, inspired you and coached you in life will not only honor those who have helped you along your path but can actually boost book sales.
  • Everyone likes to see their name in print right? This is a great way to get others talking good about you. For example, if you plan to release your e-book prior to the print book you an actually leverage everyone you mention in your acknowledgement page as a book sale.
  • By purchasing for them a gift copy of your e-book (we do it for .99 cents during our Amazon Best Seller campaign that typically lasts 72 hours) When they open their email and download the e-book from you it counts as a book sale.

So for example, you mention 200 people you want to thank for their contribution in your life and you send them a quick email and let them know you are gifting them an E-copy of your book and you mention them on page 4. When they download the book, that counts as a sale for you and puts you on track to become a #1 International Best Selling Author on Amazon.

HAVE A BUSINESS PLAN BEYOND THE BOOK. Learn to LEVERAGE the book into other businesses.

Your Story Becoming a Movie | Make-A-Wish Foundation | Your Brand

When it comes to building your brand online and creating multiple streams of income around your book, your business and your brand. Video marketing should be an integral part of all that you do and here’s why and is why video blogging should be a weekly thing on Facebook LIVE and YouTube LIVE

Why V-blog weekly on Facebook LIVE and YouTube LIVE

  1. It’s where people are
  2. It’s so easy to broadcast, optimize and syndicate
  3. It will have the most long term impact on your traffic to your BUY NOW page.

The reason most people don’t do enough video blogging

  1. We think it’s not perfect
  2.  We think we need expensive editing equipment 3.
  3.  We think others will judge us if it’s not uber professional

My VERY FIRST video on YouTube 8 years ago when Jeremiah (my youngest was 12)

I started out shooting in my kitchen in Oklahoma in 2010. They were bad, didn’t get much traffic but I started and many of those are still getting watched and  indexed by Google and they are driving traffic to my Websites based on my keywords.

I recently interviewed the Make-A-Wish Foundation Founder Frank Shankwitz in San Diego and personally thanked him as my family has been the recipient of his amazing organization during the time of  my sons healing from Leukemia.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation story gives new writers and veteran authors a great model to craft their story and bring their brand and platform to the world. In the last 30 years, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has granted nearly 300,000 wishes for children battling life-threatening illnesses.

The Book about the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Frank Shankwitz are about to become a full length major motion picture.

Once Upon A Wish: True Inspirational Stories of Make-A-Wish Children Paperback – March 5, 2013  by Rachelle Sparks

Frank’s amazing journey and the stories about the foundation will be featured in a the new movie coming out soon.

Frank-Shankwitz-Make-A-Wish-Foundation-interview

Michael D. Butler, Beyond Publishing with the Make-A-Wish Foundation Founder Frank Shankwitz

When it comes to getting your story out to the world 3 questions every author must ask themselves:

  • How can I create something epic that will change the world?
  • How can I get other people telling my story?
  • How can I make my story (my book go viral)?

Amazing stories are all around us. Everyday heroes are often overlooked by media and by our society.

When you tell the stories that real people want to hear you and your brand can become famous reach the world almost overnight!

6 Things you can do THIS WEEK to begin to generate buzz around your brand and your eminent book launch:

  1. Create a weekly YouTube clip (my interview above with Frank was shot with my iphone6)
  2. Embed your video interview into your WordPress Website and write a 300-500 word blog post around the interview.
  3. Link back to your YouTube video.
  4. Use the same text in your blog post as you do on your YouTube video (this will help you tremendously with SEO – Search Engine Optimization)
  5. Share your blog post on all of your social media channels: Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Facebook Fanpage, Tumblr, Linkedin, instagram and Pinterest.
  6. Ask others to like, comment and share as well and (see it go viral!)

 

Having a team of Book Launch Experts™ to pave the way and leverage Best Seller Status™ with a Book Selling System™ would indeed, be the ultimate Online solution in a post borders era.

Can You Hashtag Your Way to Best Seller Status™?

Can I #Hashtag My Way to Best-Seller Status™

The hashtag # popular since Twitter launched in 2006 has spread to other social media platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn and now almost entirely across the internet to help users and search engines index topically based on relevant keywords. Strategic hash tagging alone can’t make you a best seller but is one ingredient in your arsenal for sure. Just like doing one bench press cannot make you an Olympic Gold medalist it can be one step on the road to get you there and most likely won’t happen without a tens of thousands of them. There is such a thing as hashtag overkill and hashtag spam and we go more into hashtag etiquette in our next edition of this e-book so stay tuned.

Author Central and Good Reads and Why Every New Book Author should be Engaged

What is the most author-centric social media platform where all 100% of members are authors? If you said Author Central you are right. Amazon’s Author Central is a powerful connector platform for authors who want to stand out and get noticed. This platform in addition to Amazon’s Good Reads makes a powerful one two combination when it comes to marketing your book and doing the pre-launch on your next book authors. For those writers who want to go “best-seller”

When it comes to making the biggest splash with your book launch two of the most important author platforms to be engaged on are Author Central and Good Reads.

Unlike Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, SnapChat and other social media platforms Author Central and Good Reads are made up 100% exclusively by authors and readers. Good reads is all about books and Author Central is all about authors.

To become a recognized expert in your niche it’s important for an author to do 3 things:

  • Connect with other authors and books in the genre of your book launch this will allow others to see you, find you and buy your book when it launches.
  • Engage with others who are interested in your topic. Engage with both readers and authors.
  • Interview respected experts who’ve written books on your topic. By interviewing these experts you see, by default, as an expert in your space.

Finally you can enable your Twitter feed on your Author Central account this will help you grow your fanbase and share your blog posts, websites and video interviews about your book and make it easier for your to find readers and other experts that have an interest in your topic that you are writing about.

Telling Your Story as an Author: I Stuttered as a Child & HOW it Helped Me…

 

In this video Michael D. Butler, Book Launch Expert with https://beyondpublishing.net helps you PRE MARKET your book by framing your story in the manuscript for fiction and non-fiction authors.

Telling Your Story as an Author: I Stuttered as a Child and Here’s HOW It Leveraged Me For Success

Asking you two very important questions. Is your book something people want to read? And is your book your expertise, your passion or your lifelong study?

In my new series, BOOKS ON THE BEACH I will show authors how to take their book from their heart, their head and their computer to the world!

Statistically, new self published authors make less than $500 according to The Guardian.

Many new and veteran authors overlook the potential power of social media when it comes to creating Online tribes and finding book buyers and book reviewers. While social media as a sales channel can bring disappointing results, authors who see social media as an Online COMMUNITY with mutual contribution and not merely a broadcast microphone will see better results says Author Social Media firm M3 New Media.

“The fact is even WRITING THE MANUSCRIPT is marketing. As authors we have to THINK about marketing when we are writing our books.” Michael D. Butler

Too many new authors are disappointed with their book launch because they don’t do the things necessary to create a BEST-SELLER BEFORE book launch. It takes a good 24-36 months of “pre-marketing” to get a book ready for BEST-SELLER STATUS. Authors who short-circuit these steps will be disappointed when their book does not hit the targeted Best-Seller list. In this video I talk about “pre-marketing” with story telling and how important YOUR story is to your books success!

7 Questions Authors & Publishers must ask BEFORE Book Launch

Statistically, new self published authors make less than $500 according to The Guardian.


Many new and veteran authors overlook the potential power of social media when it comes to creating Online tribes and finding book buyers and book reviewers. While social media as a sales channel can bring disappointing results, authors who see social media as an Online COMMUNITY with mutual contribution and not merely a broadcast microphone will see better results says Author Social Media firm M3 New Media.

“The fact is even WRITING THE MANUSCRIPT is marketing. As authors we have to THINK about marketing when we are writing our books.” Michael D. Butler

Some of the questions new and existing authors need to ask themselves before launching any new book  project are:

 

1. Is there enough demand for the topic I am writing about?

2. How many books have been written on my chosen topic?

3. How many of those books have hit Best Seller?

4. Do I have an active, Online community that is connected to my topic?

5. Do I have speaking gigs (Online and in person) lined up to speak to people that are passionate about my cause and my project?

6. Do I have a social media presence where I am considered an influencer and thought leader on my topic?

7. Have I interviewed enough experts on my topic and could I feature their content in my book?

These questions are a good baseline indicator of whether or not a book will do well in the marketplace and in bookstores. There are other indicators we use as a publisher to determine market viability and timing.

Speak with someone here at Beyond Publishing and Marketing your book today.

3 Steps to Paid Speaking Gigs for New Authors & Speakers

As an author have you asked yourself: “How can I get paid speaking gigs to sell more books and establish more credibility as an expert?”

Getting paid speaking gigs is like being in College and trying to get credit to buy your first car.

“I did over 100 free speeches before I ever got paid for a single speech.” Zig Ziglar

You need credit to get credit but you don’t have credit and no one wants to be the first one to take a gamble on you. Not like kids who are in College now getting credit cards sent to their dorm room, things have changed.

No one wants to be THE FIRST to hire you as a speaker if they have not first seen you do your thing. So what I will show you in this video and blog post is HOW to showcase yourself as a speaker to get the credibility you need and to begin to get hired as a speaker.

 

1. Accept Free Speaking Gigs

Be honest. as speakers, we all prefer the paid speaking events. But many a seasoned pro will tell you they did hundreds of free speeches before they got paid for one. This may not be encouraging for a new aspiring speaker to hear but the truth is, in the Internet age, you can log a lot of speeches using my methods below that include Internet interviews.

2. Get Photos of You Speaking

Maybe you are thinking: “Yeah right that’s great if I’m speaking on a stage with 5,000 in my audience but I’m speaking to 12-15 people.” Listen, this is no problem. Have someone get some tight shots of you. When it comes to video and photos a good close up with 2-3 people listening intently can be more powerful for your marketing than a wide shot of you lost in the crowd and on a big stage.

I tell our Authors at Beyond Publishing that the purpose of a book signing is not to sell a ton of books, oh it’s nice if and when that happens. But the book signing is all about getting the photo opp so the event can live on in infamy on your Facebook Fanpage and Website for life and help you position yourself more as a thought leader for future books.

Michael-D-Butler-Speaking-Mastermind

Leading an Author Mastermind in Oklahoma

Build out a Photo Album of you Speaking on your Facebook Fanpage and periodically posts new photos of you speaking and having the microphone in your hand. Even if your interview is a Google Hangout, take a screen shot and post it as it is a newsworthy event and a story that needs to be re-told as it is you speaking on your topic of expertise and that makes YOU a subject matter expert in your field.

3. Put together a Sizzle Reel of You Speaking & Include Testimonials

“If a picture is worth a thousand words what is a video worth?” Michael D. Butler

Have someone capture your talk and create a video Sizzle Reel of the talk . This is something our marketing team can but together for you or you can find someone to do this for you.  Even if you do not have live footage of you speaking you can use still photos with voice over audio of you speaking and subtitles with testimonials from what others are saying about your talk.

Another great way to potentially  impress someone who may want to hire you to speak is by having a robust YouTube channel with you hosting interviews, being interviewed and speaking from your heart to your followers. Don’t let the need to be perfect make you wait. As you wait to get the right professional equipment the world and your market is moving on. Get started now. People want to see you. Don’t wait, start speaking and making money with your expert talks! Not to mention, sell more books!

In a future blog post I will talk about Speaker’s Bureau’s Pros & Cons and if you should join one or not.

Author Ania G & Michael D. Butler at LA Times Festival of Books Los Angeles

The time is now for every Author, Entrepreneur and Business Person to see themselves as a Publisher. The fact is the printing press brought us out of the Dark Ages and the Internet has opened up a whole new world of Publishing.

This is WHY every Expert, Artist, Author and Entrepreneur must see themselves as a Publisher.

Author-Ania-G-LA-Times-Festival-of-Books with Dr. John Alizor

Someone recently said, “The future belongs to those who get there first.”

And the quickest way to predict the future is to own it. Never before has it been possible to create and own influence in the hearts and minds of so many through the power of the written and the spoken word that in this Internet age!

Thus the infamous quote from 1839:

“The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword.” 

“So to every Author, Expert, Entrepreneur, Pastor, Business Person, Write, Create, Broadcast, don’t wait until everything is perfect. Start now, do something daily and change the world!” Michael D. Butler

Speaking Gigs that can Help Book Authors Sell More Books

Last week I asked the question: When is the best time of year to launch your book?

Today I want to talk about: Speaking Gigs that can Help Book Authors Sell More Books

For the new author who wants to sell more books it just makes sense to  strategically accept speaking gigs to gain more exposure for your book.

A good example of a billion dollar branded that launched pre-Internet is Chicken Soup for the Soul with Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield. They did 600 radio interviews that first year when NOBODY knew who they were and many of those interviews were in their PJ’s!

Speaking

 Types of Speaking

1. Speaking from Stage-Keynotes

2. Facilitating Workshops

3. Coaching/Consulting/Counseling

4. Speaking on Webinars, Radio Shows, Podcasts, Google Hangouts, Blog Talk Radio interviews

5. Speaking to bookclubs, reader groups,etc.. in Libraries, Churches and organizations

6. Social Media platforms, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Vimeo, Instagram and Google+

All of the above situations can be events the author is invited to speak at or events the author hosts themselves. There are advantages and disadvantages to hosting your own events. We can go into more detail on this at a future date.

Getting Paid to Speak

There are speaking gigs that an author can get paid for and there are speaking events with no honorarium. There are many sponsorship opportunities where a new speaker can sponsor an event and gain access to the stage and even have a table or booth at an event. Do your research and put your negotiating skills to work, you’d be surprised what you might find.

We’d all like to get paid to speak right? It is true that our brand value goes up when we are on stage and we can sell more books, charge more for coaching and consulting and book calendar full with prospect appointments.

New authors must be willing to speak for free in order to gain the experience, testimonials and necessary resume of speaking in order to start charging retail pricing.

In the economic downturn of 2007 and 2008 the speaking industry took a hit and so did speaker fees. While things in the Corporate, Entrepreneurial, Direct Sales and Faith Based markets are starting to make a comeback; the wise speaker will be strategic in how they position themselves withing the every changing market.

Depending on where the author is at in their speaking career, smart authors can negotiate: speaking fees, honorariums, book sales, air time, selling from the stage, selling back of room, schedule placement and many other features into their talks, seminars and workships.

It is ideal to get others talking about your brand but before others will believe in your brand and talk about your brand they have to see that YOU believe in your brand and you are passionate about talking about your brand.

Last week I listed 10 things that every new author needs to ask themselves 12 months BEFORE they launch their next book:

 

4 Things Every new and veteran author MUST ask before they think about marketing their book are:

  1. How engaged is your social media tribe?

  2. Am I a Speaker or willing to learn how to speak?

  3. How many speaking gigs do you have scheduled for the next 12 months?

  4. How active is your Author YouTube channel?

 

5 Ways to Become a Better Speaker & Get More Paid Speaking Gigs

  1. Join a local Toastmasters group in your area.

  2. Join the National Speakers Association

  3. Interview people on a Facebook LIVE every week.

  4. Give free speeches in your local community for free to get better with practice and to get photos and videos of your speaking

  5. Use Google to find people who are hosting regional events, non profits, educational forums and offer to speak or be on a panel for free. Some great opportunities for speaking are the local Rotary clubs, Lions clubs and other civic organizations.

The 5 C’s to Going Best-Seller with Your Book – #1 is Cover Design

Cereal companies spend more on the box then they do the cereal. There is a reason for this.

Since the average self-published author never sales more than 500 books it makes sense to invest in a quality book cover that will appeal to people the author does not know, beyond family and friends. If you are to sell your book beyond family and friends you must invest in a world class book cover. It will pay you richly in the long run.

If your book looks self published you’ll never get it into the bookstores and libraries.

The truth is 76% of books in English are bought and consumed OUTSIDE of the USA.

The top selling countries for books in English are:

  • China

  • Japan

  • India

We get your books distributed globally! Beyond Amazon (Amazon is only 65% of the Worlds’s Book sales according to Forbes.com)

So it is a WISE investment for the new and veteran author to invest in a good edit and a great book cover. If it’s not a great book cover, chances are no one will pick up the book, let alone read it.
