Trauma to Triumph

Book Collaboration

Our book project

I hope you are all writing away and enjoying the creative process.

Please submit as soon as you are done, so the next round of compiling, editing and formatting can begin.

Deadline: 16 May if possible, 31 May at the latest. (see to do next regarding deadline if you are desperate for an extension)

To do next

1. Make sure we have a high res image of you for the back cover

2. Vote on cover concept below before it goes to the designer

3. The sub-title is super important. Choose and/or suggest  a subtitle

4. Did you complete your contract? No contract, no book!

5. I have had a request for word a count increase. I am a writer too… I understand! Here is the fairest for everyone deal: 3000 words $97 or 4000 words $111

6. We do not need to be rigid! Our deadline can be extended if it means that more of us can join. I know how incredibly busy all of you are, me included. Amazon allows for pre-order up to a year before, but we do not want to lose too much momentum after the summit. Please vote below.

7 Scroll down for Back Cover concept. The designer may switch things up though! But the basic idea is there. (But some of your back page images are grainy because they are not high res.)

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 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 …
