I would like to ask this group for recommendations regarding transcription and editing services for a book.  I have many messages currently shared as podcasts (I was a pastor of a church plant for the past several years).  Many of these messages are centered around common themes of personal growth, development, and transformed thinking.  Many of my audio series would make great material for books.  I want to find someone who can take the audio from a message series and create and edit it into readable format.  

I've tried some of the traditional transcription services who use programs to convert audio into text.  But the problem is the way I speak is much different from a readable format.  So my real need is someone who can edit the transcripts into book-form language and structure.

Is there anyone in the 48day community that this group would recommend?

A major change to how Amazon pays self-publishing authors went into place yesterday. Previously, KDP users participating in the Kindle Select Program (granting exclusive digital rights to Amazon) got paid when readers borrowed their book through Kindle Unlimited or the Kindle Users Lending Library. 

Amazon had a monthly fund; each month, this fund was distributed evenly across the total number of book borrows.

Starting July 1, a similar payment pool is in place. However, authors are now paid proportionally based on the number of pages that are actually read in their books. The KDP reporting page now charts pages read across all your books in Kindle Select.

There are more details on the KDP website. This is a major shift in Amazon's approach for self-publishers. We'll have to see how it changes the market.

Kimanzi is the man! Anybody else planning to go to Podcast Movement next month? I know Kimanzi will be there.

While not specific to writing, there's a ton of overlap in the media/marketing content that's applicable to writers. I went last year and the networking alone made it worth the investment.

Congratulations Kimanzi! Or should I say, as Google Translate suggests, बधाई हो? 

So great to celebrate all of your successes with you!  :)

बधाई हो

Kimanzi, This is an awesome story and encouragement. Thanks for sharing your heart to get us back on track to what is important.

Tom, thanks for the book reference and the resource. I actually know of a few people who need it. I'll try to get them to review it as well.

Hi Everyone:

Over the last year, I created several online courses. As a way to introduce the "Finding Your God Given Purpose" class, I decided to offer an introduction class for only $20. It's not a sales pitch, it's useful content. I hope out you'll check out the "How to Get Your Miracle Healing" and "How to Lose Weight Without Really Trying" classes too. Thanks!
