From Your Head to Your Hands — How to Write, Self-Publish, and Launch Your Book.

by Derek C. Olsen

“From Your Head to Your Hands will help any first-time author get published.” -Kent Julian

“We all have a book in us, but so few know how to take even that first step. Derek holds up the torch and leads the way for those (like myself) who would have otherwise remained in the dark.” -John Lee Dumas, -Founder and Host of EntrepreneurOnFire

“It’s easy to see that Derek Olsen spent a fair amount of time researching how to properly launch a new book into the marketplace. Spending time researching and planning you launch will pay off in the long run. Start your self-publishing research here, start with From Your Head to Your Hands.” -Lauren Forest, The Word Perfectionist

“Derek’s inside look at self-publishing is what you need to effectively and efficiently get your book out there in the market place. With From Your Head to Your Hands, Derek gives you the inside look you need to get your book published. Be ready as Derek shares all that you need to know as a first time author.” -Tony & Alisa DiLorenzo, Authors of 7 Days of Sex Challenge

“As both an author and an online marketer, I know promoting a book is as important, if not more so, then the actual content. An author invests a significant amount of time and effort self-publishing a book. So how can that book fight and win in the marketplace? A good start is having a blueprint from someone who’s been there. The marketing guide included with “From Your Head to Your Hands” is the ideal starting place. I can’t think of a better way to help successfully launch your book into the market.” -Sharon Vaz
“Derek’s been nothing but an inspiration and man of supreme awesomeness. I have found incredible value in his previous books, and I look forward to getting an inside peek at this new project on writing and publishing! Derek’s a man who has insight, empathy, and unbridled passion. I love this man, in a borderline inappropriate manner.” -Joshua Gordon - Marketing and Branding Dude
“I recently finished my first book, ‘What’s Your Chapter..an interactive journey to overcoming difficult chapters’ and I have been anxiously awaiting the launch of From Your Head to Your Hands so I can begin marketing my own project. Thanks for taking the time to share your wisdom and success with us Derek!” -Stephaine Tillman -Storyteller

“Derek Olsen knows what it takes to not only write but successfully promote a book. His “Head to Hands” approach is a refreshing technique on how to successfully engage a village of fans to help an author promote a book. I’ve watched his techniques with his Four Week Financial Turnaround book and I’m taking copious notes! If you are an author, you should be taking notes too.” -Andy Makar -Author of Project Management Interview Questions Made Easy

“I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Derek as part of a private self-publishing mastermind group. Derek absolutely knows how to successfully create, launch and market books that deliver. From Your Head to Your Hands will guide you the smart way to publishing your first book – and you’ll have a blast along the way! -Dustin Riechmann -Author of 15 Minute Marriage Makeover

“When it comes to publishing a book, the distance between your head and your hands can seem like miles. Derek has traveled that road and knows all the right turns to take. Holding your book in your hands is closer than you might think. ‘From Your Head to Your Hands’ is your road map for self-publishing success.” -Joyce Layman Blackburn, Keynote Speaker. -Helping you to create a business and life you love by design

“Derek’s tips on getting big people to write you an endorsement for your book is really great. It’s effective! I’ve never tried asking people to provide blurbs for my book until I’ve read his work and applied it, and it works! I was even surprised that you can ask for endorsement even when the manuscript isn’t finished.” -Denise Kim Wy

The Book of Common Sense Writing, Editing, and Small Press Publishing (Plain Wrapper Series)

by Chila Woychik

There is more to writing than rules (essential as they are), and the intuition it takes to do a truly good job of reading, writing, and editing can be learned, at least to some degree.

Intuition has been defined as the ability to understand something quickly without having to stop to figure out how it’s done. I like to describe it as a knowing. “I know this book is good though I may not be able to tell you exactly why â?¦” or “These lines should be edited and here’s how I suggest it be done (though few others may see it this way) â?¦” This is the missing element in the convention of many novice readers, writers, editors, and a number of seasoned ones as well: a reliance on rules over common sense, reason.

This is a collection of former blog posts – that is, generally unstudied treatises minimally formatted. Blog posts are, well, relaxed essays usually unstructured and sometimes blatantly raw. In other words, this isn’t a formal book on writing.

Herein I talk about line editing and why it’s a “forgotten art,” the cost of hiring an editor and is it worth it, why an author should strive to write like Ray Bradbury, what writing voice is and how to build it, why small POD presses have to work harder than the rest to be truly successful. I talk about my vision for “crossover” books, books for a wide reading audience, not just the religiously-inclined or those who like hardcore mainstream works – this and much more…

The 9 Master Plots for Bestsellers & Blockbusters

by Meg North

“Twilight” is a Hero-and-the-Monster plot with a Happy Love ending. “The Hunger Games” is Utopia/Dystopia, and “Pirates of the Carribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” is a Nautical Adventure. Millions of viewers tune in to the popular “CSI” television series, and all three variations use the Cat-and-Mouse plot. “The Lord of the Rings” is Fantasy Adventure, and “Romeo and Juliet” is the quintessential Doomed Love plot.

How would you like to write bestsellers like “Pride and Prejudice” (Happy Love) or blockbusters like “Braveheart” (Epic War)? Make it easier by using the 9 Master Plots!

Each of these classic story structure plots contains key elements to help you tell timeless, yet fresh stories again and again. The 9 Master Plots can be used again and again in each novel or screenplay you finish. They work for any story, too. Once you start using them to structure your storytelling, you’ll wonder how you got from page 1 to page 300 without them.



How to Beat Dyslexia and Dysgraphia – My Story

by Matt Buttsworth

My name is Matt Buttsworth. I have suffered from dyslexia and dysgraphia all my life and I know how difficult it can be to learn to read or to learn how to write legibly or to type without a thousand uncontrollable errors. I also know as a teacher and from my own at times bitter personal experience how difficult it can be to get effective help, and what terrible obstacles and terrible blows people suffering from dyslexia and dysgraphia can face .
But despite these disabilities, I have triumphed. I taught myself to read, to type using code systems and to use the latest voice dictation technology to help me create almost error free texts. Something I could never do at an earlier age when all I could do was write or type. And through hard work, perseverance and with the use of these techniques and computer programs I have been able to become a published author with a number of academic texts and novels available for sale on Amazon and to gain a PhD.
This book is about providing you with the practical skills and the latest available information on which word processing programs and which voice dictation programs someone suffering from dyslexia aor dysgraphia should use and how to most effectively use them.
I hope you find it of use in helping you too beat dyslexia and dysgraphia.

Dr Matt Buttsworth
