The last Monday Night Reading before summer break is MAY 2 at 7pm ET!

These lovely authors, Tara Nolan and Cyndi Thomason, will read excerpts from their wonderful books, MONEY MOVES and MOTHERHOOD, APPLE PIE AND ALL THAT HAPPY HORSESH*T respectively, and chat with me about their journey as authors.

Both of these books have tremendous value for anyone who has concerns about their finances and/or entrepreneurship. (Isn't that most of us?) I hope you'll spread the word, as the larger the crowd, the more fun we have!

You must register (link in comments) to get the Zoom location (purely for security measures) and reminder that this is a FREE event. See you soon!

This pic is a screenshot of the A+ content on the Amazon listing for my book, WRITE A MUST READ. This feature allows you to add branding and videos to enhance your listing.

I asked my publisher, Page Two-Macmillan to include an important framework from my book, the Reader Transformation Sequence. Why did I want that? Because I view A+ content as an opportunity to provide value, not just make my listing look pretty.

How can you provide value in your A+ content? And if you don't have A+ content on your listing, get on it.

This past Saturday's Writing Sprint Marathon was another success. The majority of attendees stayed the entire day! So many words written, so many trolls defeated. Writing sprints work, period. In fact, for tonight's Monday Night Reading, our two authors-- Amanda Crowell and Julie Ellis --both wrote their books during writing sprints in my Author Club sprint community.

At 7pm ET tonight, you can listen to these fantastic authors read excerpts from their forthcoming books. YOU MUST REGISTER to get the unique Zoom link, but note this is just a security measure.

The link is below in comments, and we start at 7pm ET sharp! I'll open the room a few minutes early, so I hope we see you soon!

Our first Writing Sprint Marathon of the year! I love this event. We get so much done, lift each other up, combat our inner critic-trolls, and learn a ton.

Last call to register for Saturday's WRITING SPRINT MARATHON!

Wow, 190,876 words. That's how many words were written collectively by our authors in the last Marathon in 2021. Over the years I've held this event, in just that one day, even with breaks and Q&A sessions and prizes, this event has collectively produced over half a million words. (In my workshop, our weekly sprints have produced over 3.5 million words.)

Writer's block isn't a thing. That's just resistance, plain and simple. When you register for our writing marathon, you'll get a list of tips to beat resistance. It's about showing up. It's about trying. It's about doing the dang thing.

My community of authors and I will show you how to break past that resistance and get words on the page.

(Oh, and I also have some special prizes to give out, including a signed copy of my book and another very special book, to be announced at the event.)

Click the link in comments to register, and you'll be sent everything you need to get started with us on Saturday. (And even though I'll start promptly at 9am EDT, you can come at any point! Stay as long as you can! I'll be there until 4pm.)

Onward!

We have another book birthday in the Top Three Book Workshop family. Tara Nolan, MBA MONEY MOVES: CHANGE WHERE YOUR MONEY LIVES, CHANGE WHERE HOW FINANCIAL WORLD GROWS is out in the world!

Did you know Tara grew up on a commune and then became an Air Force pilot? This is NOT your average financial strategy book!

I learned so much from working on this book and it has helped me take significant strides toward my financial goals. Tara is a compassionate, insightful, knowledgeable advisor who has an approach toward financial and retirement planning that can help anyone, no matter how much money you have. MONEY MOVES shifted my mindset in powerful ways, and I will be forever transformed because I read it. Tara's book truly is a must-read.

Well done, Tara. Happy Book Birthday!

If it fits your budget, please get your copy today. Link in the comments.

Friends, I want to remind you to register for the Monday Night Reading event on April 4 at 7pm. As a security measure to protect our authors, we're requiring folks register prior, and Zoom will notify you before the event with the location. It's still free and a lot of fun. April features two authors who completed their books in my Author Club writing sprint group, and I couldn't be more pleased to highlight their books. Julie Ellis, BIG GORGEOUS GOALS, and Amanda Crowell, GREAT WORK, will entertain us with selections from their forthcoming books. I hope you'll join us! Registration link below.

Mark your calendars for April 2nd for Writing Sprint Marathon!

I hold this FREE event three times a year. I created it to help you…

· Make significant progress on your book or writing project
· Start your book or writing project
· Find motivation to take your book or writing project “out of the drawer”
· Get answers to your questions about book development, writing, editing, and publishing

This Writing Sprint Marathon is special, because I finished my book, WRITE A MUST-READ: CRAFT A BOOK THAT CHANGES LIVES--INCLUDING YOUR OWN.

As a ghostwriter, I wrote dozens of books. I’ve edited more than 100 books. And yet, what I discovered writing my own book took me by surprise. I’ll be sharing my insights with you during the marathon.

Here’s how Writing Sprint Marathon works:

From 8:45am to 4:00pm Eastern we meet on Zoom for 25-minute focused writing sprints and Q&A breaks. We’ll take longer breaks to move around and eat. I also give out prizes.

You can show up for part of the event or all of it.
You can come and go as you please.
You can wear your PJs.

The event is a blast, and I hope you’ll sign up and share it with friends and/or colleagues who want to start/finish their books.

Tonight at 7pm ET, it's my favorite event: Monday Night Reading! Join me as I talk with authors Cyndi Thomason and Tara E. Nolan about their upcoming releases, from which they'll read.

Mark your calendar for March 7th's MONDAY NIGHT READING!

Monday Night Reading is quickly becoming one of my favorite things we do in Top Three. I love shining a light on my alums, giving them space to read selections from their forthcoming books and discussing authorship and the power of story. I'm determined to normalize public readings for nonfiction authors. Why should fiction writers get all the fun?

March 7th will be another wonderful night. I'll chat with Cyndi Thomason, author of Motherhood, Apple Pie and all that Happy Horsesh*t (how Erma Bombeck is that title?) and Tara Nolan, MBA, author of upcoming Money Moves for pre-retirees who want to achieve a level of wealth and retain it without the usual headaches of financial planning. Both are alums from my workshop publishing their second books, and I couldn't be more thrilled to talk about their authorial journeys.

As usual, the evening will be recorded and added to our YouTube Channel, but it's so much more fun to listen live! Save the link below (right click, save as) and add it to your calendar to join us next Monday night at 7pm ET.

I like to start sharp, so the room is opened a few minutes prior. This is a free event, open to the public, so by all means, bring a friend - the more, the merrier! See you then!

Tonight at 7pm ET, Monday Night Reading returns with a new format and two amazing authors. After our outstanding turnout last month with Michael Port, I expanding the size of the audience so there's room for all!

I'm thrilled to join Gena Cox and Sophie Wade, where they'll read excerpts from their forthcoming books and chat with me about authorship and how the power of story can change minds.

This is a FREE EVENT, so bring a friend! Click the link in comments at 7pm ET to join us. Onward!

It's almost time for one of my favorite recurring events, Monday Night Reading! The first Monday of every month at 7pm, I invite grads of my Top Three Book Workshop (and now, members of my writing sprint group, Author Club) to read selections from their forthcoming books and talk with me about authorship and the power of story to heal, empower and transform their audience.

I had such a tremendous turnout for January, that I altered the format to allow for deeper conversation with a smaller group of authors. This month we'll listen to Dr. Gena Cox and Sophie Wade as they share excerpts from their upcoming, must-read books. See you February 7th at 7pm, and bring a friend! (Link below in comments)

BLESSED to hang with Mike Michalowicz and AJ Harper and a driven posse of other inspiring authors.

I’m at the office watching an “interviewing masterclass” as I’m gearing up for a book writing workshop with AJ Harper. 📕 Even though I’ve had countless friends and colleagues tell me how excited they are that I’m starting this project and have even been told they wish the book already existed…the closer I get to having to put pen to paper (or fingers to the keyboard) the more intimidated I feel. 📕 I know the term others throw around for this phenomenon - #impostersyndrome - and I suppose it is that at its core. Mainly, I just want to help others avoid the mistakes and burnout I faced. I want readers to experience the highs, without the lows. Although, as I’m have been reminded today, we rarely make a change unless there is a pivotal moment where we just want to drown our sorrows with chips, salsa and a margarita or two. 📕 What’s a time in your life where you had a super low moment but it actually turned into something better than expected? When did you have a pivotal change in your personal or professional life? What or who helped you the most to work through it?
