The Instant author writing challenge! by Fumeeakins(f) : 11:06 pm On Mar 05

It is true that;

You have an incredible book thought; perhaps numerous extraordinary book thoughts.

You have this inclination somewhere down in your gut that your book will be the bomb and people will rush to buy it.

People, both family and colleagues, have told you, "You have to compose a book!"

But then, life just continues acting as a burden. You find you're investing time on family, friends, business, your job, as well as other weekly social engagements.

So while the days and weeks and months roll by, the pages of your manuscript remains empty.

And because you're fagged out, and probably brainstorming what the following week will be for you, and how to meet up with certain responsibilities. You keep having the below listed issues;

- Absence of creative ability

- Dread the thought of how lame your book will sound because you have no time to give it your best.

- Compulsiveness

- Not recognizing any instant gratification from writing your book.

- Not happy writing as the book does not interest you enough to keep your attention.

- Your schedule is always tight, and you're so immersed in your work. So when you sit to write, nothing comes out.

Writing a book is both fun, and hard work. And sometimes, it is outright annoying; depending on what you're writing on.

But then, the people waiting to read from you are not interested in how hard or annoying the process is. They only want value; to be entertained, educated, or informed.

Will 2019 be the year you finish writing your book, get it published and distributed? Then I'm happy to present to you,

The Instant Author Writing Challenge - Write Your Book in 7 Days.

In this challenge, you get a Proven Process to FINISH Writing Your Best Book.

It is an online program that will guide you through the book composing process. By the end of the challenge, you should have your complete book in your hand, or at least an almost complete book.

Also, you would have acquired skills and techniques that will help you write other books later on. These skills include, but are not limited to:

- How to know what your target readers want

- How to create exceptional characters

- How to find your own composition voice

- How to stay motivated and keep composing even when it gets hard

- How to defeat writer's block

- Get criticism on what's working and what's not

Those who make it to the end of the challenge have exciting offers waiting for them.

This challenge will begin on the 15th of March 2019. However you can send in your requests now to join the group and save your spot.

All requests will be approved on the 13th of March 2019. Please click the link below to join. See you there.

6 Easy Steps To Publish Your Book On DRAFT2DIGITAL by Fumeeakins(f) : 4:53 am On Mar 12

Gone are the days when self-publishing an e-book was seen as a herculean task. It is now so easy to not only upload and format your manuscript to standard, but to also have it distributed to other online stores and published on your behalf. All thanks to Draft2Digital; the next best e-publishing platform you'll ever know.

So if you're passionate about writing, get up and start to write. Write as much as you want because e-publishing and e-distribution of your books on various platforms is no longer a problem.

Publishing with Draft2Digital comes with so many awesome benefits that on a normal day would be too good to be true. Some of these benefits are:

1. The company is currently partnering with over 10 other platforms which your books can be distributed to, as soon as you publish with them. These other platforms include popular stores like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple Books, Kobo, and some e-libraries and ebook subscription stores; including Scribd and Tolino.

2. No more book formatting problem on various ebook stores, as Draft2digital takes care of that. It meets the formatting requirement of every store it sends your ebooks to, on your behalf.

2. It has an easy to use interface. And publishing takes only about 10 minutes, or less.

3. In case you're wondering if Draft2Digital charges a fee to get your books published and distributed to their partner stores, no it doesn't. They only take a small percentage off each of your book sales. A 15% commission. Also, they have no upfront charges for any of their services, such as formatting, conversion, distribution and sales tracking.

4. Formated ebooks come in different formats and can be used individually on other stores, or for other purposes. This includes PDF formatting for hardcopy printing or e-distribution, or epub and MOBI copies respectively, for online publishing in stores like Amazon, Okadabooks, Barnes and Noble, etc.

5. You have the tools to create a universal link for your book despite it being on different online stores. Draft2digital would bring your book in different stores together in one place, so your readers can easily buy from their preferred online store, without having to go and look for it.

How long does it take to publish a book on Draft2Digital?
It only takes a few minutes. All you need to do is upload your book in the supported format, fill in the sales information (title, author name, description, sales categories, and search terms) and chose yoir price.

As soon as you click 'publish,' your book takes anywhere from 1 hour to 72 hours  to show up on all the digital stores you've selected. And this delay depends on your book content, as well as  the terms and conditions of the various ebook platforms and how it affects your book type.

An ISBN is automatically assigned to your book.

The most beautiful part of it is that your book will be converted into a quality paperback file that you can print out, at no cost. Even a book you've published on another platform can go up on Draft2Digital.

Steps on publishing your book with Draft2Digital

Click on the red arrows by the side of the formatted display to flip the pages. Meanwhile, please look at the parts marked A, B, and C. Those are various conversions of your book. You can download the PDF as a ready formatted version for your hardcopy print. You can download the epub format to upload to other e-book stores.

Once you're done here, tick the agreement box and click on Save & Continue.

6. Now it's time to choose your vendors.

You can choose as many partner stores as you want. Just tick a checkbox and that's all. As more partner stores are being added to the existing ones, you will be informed. 

In the above photos, all the ticked boxes are the stores I chose to send my books to. And below the stores, you can see the red submit button

What's the Book Writing Support and Accountability Program About? by Fumeeakins(f) : 5:16 pm On Mar 29

What's the Book Writing Support and Accountability Program About?

When you join the Book Writing Support and Accountability Program, you have automatically stated that you want to write a book, or finish the one you've already started. And this is the first step.

The program comes with all the support, tricks, motivation and tips you need to start and finish your first draft in 60 days or less. Definitely, you're looking forward to writing a bestseller, or your best book, not just any book. And you know, deep within, that you need support, motivation and accountability, to get your project off the ground and completed

So How Does It Work?The course is divided into three parts and last for 60 days.

It starts with expert guidance The actual writing Of your bookFeedbackWhy 60 Days? You May think no one can compose a book in 60 days. If they do, it wouldn't be a good book.Well, Yuwanda sells romance like crazy, and she writes 2 novellas every months.

I created the first draft of an ebook guide on How to design beautiful book covers In 4 days.

I wrote the bulk of Susan's Diary 1, a 12 thousand words story, in one night I drove Funmi, one of my team members, to write Trapped by Kisses, in 7 days. The old teaching we got about composing a book in one year if you want it to be good enough, is not true. You can compose your book; depending on the length, in 7 days, 2 weeks, a month, or two months.

As a ghostwriter, when clients bring jobs to me, they usually want it delivered in 2 months.

Besides, we understand that your tight schedule might be a major reason why your book is still not complete, and we want to create a pace for you to work with, without having it interfere with your tight schedule. Now let's talk about focus. When was the last time you disciplined yourself well enough to make input in your book progress every day, for two months?Stephen King once said, “the main draft of a book—even a long one—should take close to three months, the length of a season.”

Now we're beating that down; from 2 months plus to 2 months dot, or less, for your first draft. Your book will require more work after your first draft. But of course, you'll agree with me that it is better to have a complete first draft to improve on, than still struggling with an unfinished first draft. In this course, our aim is to ensure that in 60 days, you would have achieved the most imperative part: You will have composed a book! And I can say this is something to be extremely glad for.

Procedures Weekly Lessons. Every day, you'll get an email with support, prompts, tips and tricks to scale the day's writing exercise, as well as a target for the week.

Feedback. You will get Proficient Critique and feedback on your outline and the first 3 chapters of your book, so as to ensure your book has a captivating start.

Weekly Deadlines. Each Friday, you will turn in one section of your book for us to go through and provide feedback, thereby giving you a handy structure to complete your book through the span of the program.

Motivating Force. In the event that you comply with all your weekly deadlines, and completion of your book, we will refund N10,000 of your course fee. Yes. You read that right. We will also give you a free book marketing guide to follow, as well as basic support in your book marketing. (When you are ready to go live with your book). Responsibility. Every 2 weeks, we will give you progress report to help check if you're complying with your weekly submissions. If you miss 3 weeks of prompt submission of weekly targets, we will send you a notice. If you miss 4 weeks, you will pass up the N10,000 refund! Workbook. You will be given a detailed workbook for your book composing process.

This workbook includes everything; from setting a composition timetable, making due dates, organizing your book and finding your extraordinary voice. It is an unquestionable requirement for success .

Criticism on Your Finished Book After 60 Days Consider the possibility that your book isn't prepared for publishing yet. All things considered, 60 days is sufficiently long to compose a first draft even with your very tight schedule. And that's why after the Book Writing Support and Accountability Course, you'll be given two options;

Enroll in the Edit Like a Professional E-course and work hand in hand with industry standard editors, to clean up your work in 2 months or less.

You will work hand in hand with industry professionals Or Purchase the Edit Like a Professional E-course and learn editing techniques and tips you can work with to self-edit your book to perfection. You will learn from the material written by professional editors, only. Whichever option you choose, you'll still be given a favorable discount as a student in our Book Support and Accountability Program. Please go here to read more details about the Self Edit Like a Professional E-course.

Other Benefits of Taking the Book Writing and Accountability Course Include:24 hours support throughout the 2 months writing program. Direct contact with me and my team and freedom to ask all your burning questions. You'll always be part of our challenges and other activities to keep you going in your writing goals, so you never get stuck, bored, or lose focus.

Opportunities that will help boost your writing career and book visibility, will be shared regularly to the group, when they come up. You'll complete your first draft in 2 months. You'll be interviewed on our blog. Your book will be promoted to readers on our blog.

When Does the 60 Days Start?The 60 days formally starts on March 30th 2019, and ends two months from that time.

Please know that entry into the program closes on the 30th of the month and would not reopen until year ending.

Ans: Yes, it is. And starting your book already shows you're ready to kick off strong with full concentration.
