Men Relationships

Book Collaboration

Our book project

We would love for you to be part of the next Chapter of the Men Relationships Summit!

What you get when you join

· Get your name more out there, reach new markets that your usual book-share or other events don’t reach, create more awareness for your work and best of all, associate yourself with the truly inspiring men women who participated in our summit!

· The opportunity to call yourself an author, if you are not one already, (and I am going to go all out to get an International Bestselling Author status for you). You all know the immediate authority that establishes. I cannot promises that, but I am pretty confident that I could repeat what I managed with my first book when I had 30 people on my mailing list. That is especially more doable as we have a much bigger combined reach than one lonely newbie!

· I get all the difficult things done… Professional Cover, Formatting and Proof Read, ISBN, setting up pre-order on Amazon, providing marketing copy and graphics, Bookbub advertising…and you do the fun things: writing and enjoying your author status and new-found authority.

· We create more awareness of what we are all about, spread our core message of hope! And better tools!

· Your page will be linked to your Summit Interview, so more people will have another chance to get to know you better. Plus there will be links to everyone’s pages in the back of the book.

· All the other authors will forever be marketing you and your work (as well as their own) as they grow their audience. This happens for you, without any further effort on your part. It is marketing in perpetuity. Now that is a pretty cool case of one chapter being globally distributed and marketed just by using leverage.

· Because it is part of the 5-books minimum ‘Summit Series’, these books are boosted every time another book is added

 

To do next

 1.    Commitment. We need to know that 12 to 16 minimum are participating to make it awesome and viable. I do want all of you of course, so will your fans… see! emotional blackmail!!! If it is working, and you would love to be part of this, please send me an email immediately saying “I’m in”

2.      I will send you the link for more information, the contract, where to upload everything and payment next.

3.      I will ask you to sign a contract.

4.      I will of course also ask you to spread the word, but I know I don’t even need to ask. You are all very professional and have been awesome during the summit.

5.      3000 words or 4000 words – you choose how many, edited. My editor, Joy Sephton Roos, will do a proofread and an out-loud read through for consistency and QC  (She has a special offer for anyone needing full edit)

6. We upload pre-order to Amazon during those dates, with publication 2 months later. That will give us chance to do proper marketing, and in this time the final files will be polished and uploaded before the official publish date.

Writing Prompts

I will make the writing very easy for you with the following questions/sections:

Section 1: A heartfelt summary of your story and your why.

Section 2: Choose what and how you want to describe your ‘why’:

How did you get started on the road you are on/your inspiration?

What was the moment/the circumstances/ the aha moment that stopped you in your tracks/your turnaround moment?

Section 3: 3 to 5 Biggest life lessons

Section 4: Your best tools, 2 to 3. For example, ‘boundaries, what it is, how to use it, what not to do and an example”

Section 5: Inspiration: Offer your reader the shortcut

“If I was back exactly where I was [___] years ago, this is what I would do to [your topic]

What we need from you

To upload:

  • A 30 word bio for the back page
  • A longer 200 word bio and your links for your own author page at the back of the book
  • Your  Amazon Author Page link if you are already published
  • A high resolution thumbnail photo for the back cover
  • An image for your page – one black and white for paperback, one in colour for Kindle, all high res
  • Your  chapter. Write a 100 words a day and before you know it, it is done!

Back Cover & Spine

The Back Cover concept – the designer may switch things up though! But the basic idea is there. 

The basic idea is that the blurb be short and punchy, and all images must be good quality, high resolution.

Hi Co-Authors

I am so excited about our book project, and looking forward to getting your chapters.

One of the biggest perks of this collaboration is having our name associated with other men and women of substance, who has incredible stories, who are brave and who are going into the world, making change happen.

The second perk is that every book in your name brings attention to your other books, those published or about to come out soon.

The third perk is not so obvious if you are not a seasoned marketer, but it is this: events drive your capability to say something newsworthy. And this is an event, not just a book, and moreover, it is a joint marketing effort. Therefore, it is up to you to use it to drive interest to your other projects. Be creative!

I just love the magic of collaboration!

Our relationships with our fathers will have a significant influence on how we see men. It will determine whether we think they are trustworthy. It will influence whether we will be fearful of being abandoned by men. Through our father’s eyes we look at ourselves – this is how we imagine men will see us. Do we measure up? Or are we always going to over-compensate to make up for us not feeling worthy. And how much bad treatment will we take simply because we fear being abandoned?

If we are lucky enough to be treated by our dads like Princess Cheesecake, the One and Only, but with respect for our separateness, our entire view of ourselves changes. We expect more for ourselves, and we are faster to dismiss relationships that are toxic for us.

Wanting our father’s approval is a very normal desire for a little girl of any age. I remember how my father ridiculed people with normal fear, so at the age of six I decided I was not scared of his pack of ferocious Alsations. They did not eat me, so there must be some truth to the notion that dogs smell fear and will attack. But that experience of trying to impress my father meant that I could not connect to feeling fear. I did not know that I had fear of abandonment triggers, as I simply could not connect to any feelings of fear!

Leoni decided that she would have to be her two sisters’ caretaker. Her dad told her as the oldest they were her responsibility to make sure they were not bullied. So she built herself a bulletproof, tough attitude. ”It was very hard to make friends, as I did not let anyone see the real me. I was longing for a relationship in which I was accepted. I did not realise that my relationships kept failing because my bulletproof attitude meant I was pushing them out of my life. I had to learn all over how to let people see the real, soft me inside.”

Sandra’s dad died when she was very young. He was her hero. They had fun. He was one hundred percent on her side. She tried to recreate that relationship all her life. Problem was that …
