I'm in the speaking group now Kent and am very thankful to you for both of these groups.

It amazes me how much great info and help we have with 48days.net, we truly are blessed to have a place like this, I've learnt so, so much.

Thank you everyone for all your help, advice and encouragement!

That's a good point, Kamanzi.

Also, I'm assuming now that you're in the Speak It Forward group, you're asking the question about speaking there. Correct?

Hi, all,

I have two discussions for which I'd appreciate some feedback. One is based on ideas of how to structure my first book. The second discussion is to see if anyone is using iBooks Author or Scrivener to write their books. I write a number of my articles in IA Writer, but I have not written a major research paper or book yet.

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?
