Thanks for the kind words Kent. I really appreciate this group and what you do!

When I was thinking about what to do I could hear Dan's words when he says to look for "and" solutions. If traditional publishing takes too much away from my message, I'll go back to self-publishing once the contract is over.

I can tell you with the interactions I've had on social media and with booking some speaking events, the fact that a traditional publisher has picked up my book has added some credibility.

Kimanzi,

Two thoughts...

1.  I definitely believe you can make the quality of a self published book be as good or better than traditionally published. I've gone both ways and you cannot tell the difference.  In fact, I was disappointed with the quality of look and feel of one of my traditionally published book. One of the others, I was disappointed with how they changed the content of the book and the title of the book.  If you know what you're doing and get professionals to help with design, layout, and editing, self-published books can be the exact same quality as traditional (and in some ways, better...or at least you're more in control of the design).

2.  Just a thought...in the future, this is probably a question for a "discussion." This is one of those conversations I'd like to point people to in the future, but when it's in the comment wall, there is no way to do that.  Does that make sense?

Thanks for all you do to add value here, Kimanzi. You've been a GREAT addition to this group.

Good morning fellow alumni.

Just wanted to congratulate Cari Troyer on the release on her first book. "Risen from Low Places".

Cari was kind enough to sit down and do an interview with me not too long ago. Here's the link to the radio show.

If you're in the process of working on your book, or are in the finishing-up stages, let me know, I'd lov to hear your story.

For Kent (you just came up in an interview I did with Joel Boggess) and the other authors here who are speakers, how did you book your first speaking gig?

I realize this is a writing group and I see you have a speaking group Kent, but I want to break into speaking this year and was curious if anyone here had some advice?

Thanks in advance

So much exciting news and activity in the past couple weeks. I've been out of commission traveling. I'm working on catching up on all the news but in the meantime I thought I'd share this note that I just got from Best Western. If you're planning on going to Coaching with Excellence in May it might save you some $$ -->>You can also earn  6,500 Best Western Rewards points for just 2 stays* at any Best Western® branded hotel in Kentucky and Tennessee--that's enough points to redeem for a FREE $25 gas card!  Just be sure to register for this offer before your first stay./p>

You have to sign up to be a rewards member, but who doesn't like free fuel?

Keep "stepping it forward" Kimanzi :)

Comment by Kimanzi Constable on April 27, 2012 at 12:15pm

Thanks so much Joe, Henry and Sutton.

For me, I have been fighting with so much doubt as I've gone through the process of chasing my dreams and passions. It's really nice to see things start to fall in place. I'm not there yet but it's one more step forward.

Congratulations Kimanzi!  Thanks for letting us know the factors in your decision to go with a publisher.

Comment by Henry Matlock on April 26, 2012 at 11:20pm

Kimanzi, that's great!  I'm so happy for you.  You are really seeing the fruits of your labor, which continues to inspire me.

Comment by Joseph Lalonde on April 26, 2012 at 7:44pm

Congratulations Kimanzi! You're smashing it out of the park! I'm so proud of and impressed by the work you're doing. Keep it up!
