Q & A

 

Why this book?

Persist Final Cover.jpg

Well, I speak on resiliency often and I never have anything about my story to leave behind. The thing is, I bet you have a story as well that touches the souls of people who hear it and they would love it, if you could just leave them with a piece of who you are. This book is yours and my opportunity to do just that.

What is the title of the book?

PERSIST; Inspiring Stories About Winning in the Game of Life When Losing Isn’t An Option

What is the book about?

The book shares the personal stories of individuals who didn’t give up in life, but who pushed through and succeeded in spite of their circumstances.  The book covers topics like; divorce, loss, starting over, family challenges, career changes, overcoming illnesses, parenting, and much more.

Who is the target audience?

The target audience for this book are primarily women leaders and entrepreneurs, but the book will also appeal to those who are into personal development.

What is the tone of the book? (Novel, Academic, Informative etc..)

Think of Chicken Soup for the Soul.  The book should read like a personal, inspirational narrative.  The content should be in first person and no more than 1800 words in length.  It should also leave the audience with a lesson or two.

How many authors will be sharing their stories?

Will I still own my story?

No.  We ask that you write and submit original work that has never been published elsewhere.  Once you share it with us, Turner Holmes Publishing House we will have all rights to the work.  You can not share your individual story under any circumstances.  It can only be shared within the context of Persist, the book.

Will your team edit my chapter?

Yes.  Turner Holmes Publishing has contracted an editor to edit your work, but we require that you follow our guidelines HERE to thoroughly edit your own work before submitting it to us.

But I’m not a writer. So how do I write a good story?

No worries. I’m a former English teacher and I’m going to be your writing coach. You’ll receive step-by-step emails guiding you along your writing journey. I’ll share tips and resources you can use to become a better writer. My hope is that what you write for this book, will spark you to tell your entire story in your very own book and you’ll have the tools to do so.

This alone will save you at least $2,500+ and let’s not forget the days and months it would take to write your entire story in a solo book.

  • Depending on your package, you will receive between 10 and 50 paperback copies of the book to sell at $20 each.
