Dear Potential Co-author,

Writing a book and getting it published to establish yourself as an expert, a sought after speaker, a columnist or media commentator is a great idea, and a huge amount of work.

If your business is booming you may not have time to step away from your business to write a book and you probably won’t want to suffer the loss or revenue in the months it would take you to write your book.

Providing service-based professionals like you turnkey solutions to build more profitable and sustainable businesses is my passion. Therefore, it is with great enthusiasm that I share with you an innovative project designed to support you in establishing yourself even more as an expert while easily increasing your business revenue.

I want to make it easy for your business to thrive. Writing a book, and getting it published, takes a lot of time and resources and is a huge project. Still, nothing else says expert, experience or adds credibility and cachet like a book you can put in someone’s hand.

Even in our high-tech world full of podcasts, e-books and e-courses, being an author and having a traditional book still holds as much cachet today and adds as much credibility as it ever has.

With this in mind, I am inviting you to apply to be a co-author in one of our upcoming multi-author book projects.

Make Your Connections Count

Savvy Leadership Strategies for Women

The Power of Civility

Social Savvy

Fill out your application here.

As you can see from the information below, I am also including a lot of marketing/promotion tools and services that will ensure this book will raise your profile and add credibility, as well as increase your revenue through book sales. I look forward to your participation.

Expect Success!

Caterina Rando

Tammy Tribble
I was so thrilled with Caterina and her team that I quickly signed up for a second book project! Both book projects helped me to take my business to the next level, motivated me to step out and begin my speaking career. Now, I have a product that I was proud to share with my clients and potential clients. These books and the credibility that comes with them are opening doors that were previously closed.

Here are our frequently asked questions. If you want to know anything else or would like to discuss how this project will work with your personal business objectives feel free to call me at 415-668-4535, or email me at cat@powerdynamicspub.com.

 

How many co-authors are a part of your books?

There will be twenty or twenty-one co-authors.

 

Why should I do a book with other professionals instead of doing my own?

There are several reasons to do a book with other authors. The biggest benefit of this kind of book is that it positions you as a top leader in your industry. Secondly, you benefit from the marketing efforts of multiple authors individually promoting the book, creating additional exposure for all, instead of only you promoting the book.

 

We do everything for you. The process of getting your book done is significantly expedited. All you have to do is write a 2500 word chapter. You can do this in a few days. . By the way if you want a ghostwriter we can arrange that as well. Writing a whole book takes a lot of time away from your current revenue-producing business activities. This project is for busy professionals who do not want to suffer the revenue loss to their business needed to step away for three to six months to write a book.

 

Also, your chapter will be professionally edited and in the time it would take you to write a few chapters you will have a book in your hand.

 

Plus our team provides you with considerable editing and marketing support.

 


How does this investment compare with doing my own self-published book?

For the same financial investment with one of the many self-publishing book houses you will only get a few books. Through being part of this joint project, we are printing over 6000 books, so the cost per book is significantly reduced.

 

According to the eWomen Publishing Network publication Author Your Success, 2007 you could expect to pay the following for each aspect of the book process:

Editing $1,500- $3,000
Proofreading $500-$1,000
Book Interior Design $2,000-$4,000
Cover Design $2,000-$4,000

 

These fees do not even include the printing. All of these expenses are included with our project.

 

The other huge advantage to participating in this project is that you will save a ton of time. Doing your own book will take you a minimum of three months of writing, editing and book preparation. This means that you will not be generating revenue during that time. We have a whole team of professionals working on this project – a project manager, a copyeditor, proofreaders, a book designer, a graphic designer and a production manager, as well as my extensive experience and commitment to creating a professional high-quality, high content product.

 

Participating in this project is a very smart business decision.

 

100% of our co-authors are published within six months of turning in their chapters.

 


What if I love the idea, and I just do not have any time to write a chapter?

No problem. We have a great ghostwriter who can write your chapter for you for a very reasonable fee.She has written or edited over 50 books.

 

I want to participate, however I am not confident I can write a great chapter. No problem. We act as your writing coach. We can help you build a chapter outline, review your material during the writing phase and help you turn in a strong chapter.

 

Why should I work with you on this project?

As the bestselling author of Learn to Power Think, published by Chronicle Books, I know a lot about how to use a book to build your business.

 

I have also been a co-author in five multi-author books like this one. They are Give Stress a Rest, Build It Big, More Build It Big, Heart of the Visionary and Direct Selling Power. Therefore as a co-author I have been through this process five times. I have also seen what provides the most value to the authors and have put together a program that will do a lot more than put books in your hands. The marketing package and other benefits we provide we have put together to raise your profile in the marketplace and significantly support the growth of your business.

 

Additionally I have done this before. Our previous titles include: Image Power, Executive Image Power, Executive Etiquette Power, Direct Selling Power, Incredible Life and Get Organized Today. We also have three projects still in production Incredible Business, Mompreneur Extraordinaire and My Style, My Way. You can find out more about our successful book projects at our website www.powerdynamicspub.com.


How big will the book be?

Approximately 6” by 9”, with at least 230 pages. The exact number of pages will not be determined until the layout is complete. This is about 20% bigger then many non-fiction books you see.

 

Can I add graphics to my chapter?

Yes, an additional $20.00 per graphic for the layout will apply. All illustrations will be done by our designer who will charge you a separate, nominal fee. If you have existing illustrations, she can adapt them to the book style so that all illustrations have a consistent look.  

 

Who holds the copyright on the book?

You hold the copyright to all the content in your chapter. You can use your existing writing to comprise your chapter and later you can expand your chapter into your own book. You can do whatever you want with your content. I will hold the copyright only on the book in its entirety.

 

What about an e-book version?

Yes, there will be an e-book version you can sell on your website, sell at your programs or even send to your clients as a value-added gift. There are many ways to use the e-book version to promote your business. You keep 100% of the revenue you generate from your e-book sales.

 

Will the book be on Amazon.com?

Yes, we will set up the book on Amazon and pay the monthly fee. Each month the first four orders (from all our book titles) go to cover this monthly fee. All additional orders are forwarded to the co-author closest geographically to the customer and you are paid 100% of the monies from Amazon for that sale.

 

What is your process for choosing co-authors?

We are building a strong, well-rounded book with no overlapping chapter content. That is why I am asking you to give me your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices for topics.

 

We are looking for established professionals that speak or train regularly. We also give special consideration for professionals that bring in a unique or innovative topic to the project.

 

Thank you for your interest in this project.
