Today is a rather monumental one, and I’m chuffed to bits to share it with you. Almost 1,000 days ago, I ended a Skype Chat with my buddy, Arnold, and considered an idea for a book… THE SUCCESSFUL MISTAKE… a book where I interview dozens of entrepreneurs about their #GreatMistake… a book I get to share with folk like you… folk who wish to change the world for the better, forever!
After interviewing 160+ entrepreneurs, I now write this book. But the thing is, I don’t want to do it on my own. Without these interviews, I’d have nothing to write about. As such, The Successful Mistake Became a Crowd-Published Book the moment I Skyped Jeet Banerjee (the very first interviewee), but it doesn’t stop here.
It begins here. It begins with you and me, transforming how we write, publish, and share books forever.
THE SUCCESSFUL MISTAKE – A TRUE CROWD-PUBLISHED BOOK
This morning, The Successful Mistake Publishizer Page went live. Between now and March 8th, we have the opportunity to raise $7,500 and make this dream a reality. But I can’t do it on my own. I need you. I need your support. I need you to spread the love with those you know, and share the good-word far-and-wide.
Because this isn’t my book. It’s ours. Come launch day, I want you to feel as proud and connected to this book as I do. That requires you to Join This Band of Merry Misfits Today, and be part of this entire adventure. Along the way, I’ll involve you in EVERY aspect of the wring process:
- Sneak Peek Access to Chapters
- Exclusive Interviews
- Beta Reading Opportunities
- Lots of Freebies, Goodies & Giveaways
- Your Help With The Book Cover
- … The Book Description
- … The Launch Plan
- … The Website
- … Every Single Detail I Can Possibly Share
Writers don’t do this. The kind of insight I plan to share is usually kept close to the writer’s and publisher’s chest, but times are changing, kid. I don’t want to do this on my own, and I wish to have you involved in EVERYTHING. That’s why this is a true crowd-published book, because it isn’t about mere money.
WILL YOU JOIN THIS BAND OF MERRY MISFITS?
I hope you’ll be part of this with me, and if you Join This Band of Merrt Misfits, I promise to make you part of THIS. When I say this is our book, I mean it. It isn’t some marketing ploy. It isn’t an empty set of words. It’s the truth, and it’s the way I desire to write future books, too.
So, If this sounds like a good deal, Please Consider Completing This Two Step Process:
That’s it. In thirty seconds time, you’ll be part of everything. All of it. The whole enchilada.
A REWARD FOR ALL POCKETS
I won’t share much more about The Crowd-Publishing Page, because I hope you CLICK HERE and check it out for yourself. Not only is there 5,000 words worth of backstory, explanations, examples, and more… but a video from yours truly, revealing why I’m Crowd-Publishing The Successful Mistake.
There’s a reward for every pocket & budget, with a simple philosophy throughout: PROVIDE INSANE AMOUNTS OF VALUE!
You’ll see for yourself, and whether you pledge $12 or $1,200, you’re part of this. You’re an official member of This Band of Merry Misfits. You’re part of the entire writing process, and an official collaborator with me. A partner of crime, if you will, so I hope you’re ready for a crazy ride.
And to brighten this page up a little, here are some screenshots I took of The Publishizer Page:
LET’S BE PART OF SOMETHING SPECIAL
I’m so excited to be part of the Publishizer Platform, a crowdfunding site that’s sure to grow-and-grow. A huge thanks to Guy and his team of awesome folk, because they’ve made the entire experience super amazing. If you wish to crowd-publish a book of your own, I recommend these guys, and I’ve a few Blog Posts in the coming weeks that explain why I chose Publishizer over sites like Kickstarter and Indigogo.
For now, I’ll thank you for your support, and share the super easy two-step process once again. I hope you’ll be part of this journey with me, but if you’re unable to, I hope you’ll share it with those you know. This is all about the crowd and community, which goes far beyond pounds and pence.
And I’d love to hear from you too, so please get in touch and let me know what you think (and if you have any questions about the campaign, ask away). What a crazy few weeks lie ahead, but I feel lucky to have you by my side
