What does writing a book have to do with healing? Everything!
It’s not only possible to write a book in a weekend; “Book Whisperer” Tom Bird has taught more than 80,000 aspiring authors how to do just that. His inspiring method will help you unlearn all the inappropriate information--the clutter--that’s been holding you back, and will show you how to get to that “writing place” where you can write from a centered, heartfelt connection. Where the words come pouring out almost faster than you can keep up with.
Retreat participants average more than 2,000 words an hour, or about 16,000 words a day. Considering that most books published today are around 45,000 words, yes, you can get that all down on paper over the course of a weekend.
Several people have said to me, "I just don't believe you can write and publish a book in a weekend." And they're right. No book worth reading has ever been published without revisions and editing (even Jack Kerouac had an editor). But for many people--like me--the hardest part is the first step, getting it ALL down on paper. For me, the opportunity to complete a first draft is too good to miss. That's why I'll be at Tom Bird’s Write Your Publishable Book in a Weekend Retreat, October 6-8, 2012 in Atlanta.
The Atlanta retreat is sponsored by local author and life coach Patrice Dickey: <email@example.com> or 404-294-9333. And right now, there’s a special offer: The first 30 who register by Friday, June 1 receive $700 off! In other words, you can attend the entire weekend for $795, nearly half off the regular price of $1495. Here’s what Patrice has to say about it:
“It took me more than 20 years to get over myself enough to write and publish my first book.
“Oh the agonies I put myself through--and it didn't have to be that way!
“In fact the only reason I was able to actually go the distance and finish was my writing mentor Tom Bird's stream of consciousness technique which helped me shut off the Inner Critic and just GET IT DOWN ON PAPER.
“Probably 85% of all people have a book in them.
“At the very least, you have your story which you may want to write down as a legacy for family members--or perhaps use as a platform for your expertise.
“I'm sponsoring Tom Bird's next Atlanta "Write Your Publishable Book in a Weekend Retreat" October 6-8, 2012 over Columbus Day weekend at the Comfort Inn & Suites Atlanta Airport North on Virginia Avenue, and here to remind you of this wonderful half-off rate, now extended through Friday June 1 ONLY. Already 1/3 of these spaces are gone!
“The first 30 who register for the retreat by June 1 receive $700 off the regular investment.
I've believed in Tom's amazing, heart-centered writing method since my first book, BACK TO THE GARDEN: Getting from Shadow to Joy, won five inspirational awards after being mentored by him. I have since sold thousands of copies of that book for thousands of dollars.
“Want particular info on the retreat? In February I did the retreat in Scottsdale, AZ, and some stories that had been caught in my heart for DECADES came flowing out. It was an amazing experience, and now I'm deep into the revision!
“Check out Tom's retreat page on his website Tom Bird to see what's included.
“Need a payment plan, no problem. Just give Tom's office a call at 928-203-0265 and they'll be happy to work with you. Or call me at 404-294-9333 or email <firstname.lastname@example.org> and I'll answer any questions I can.
“Don't need a payment plan, no problem either. You can register for the retreat either online via the above link by entering the discount code of 0795 upon checking out, or you can register by calling Tom's office. Or I'll handle your arrangements for you.
“Those who take advantage of this offer who register before June 1 and don't need a payment plan will receive a free advance copy of Tom's latest book (to be released this summer) currently titled The Write Your Book in a Weekend Way of Life ($24.95 value).
“If you want to join us in Atlanta, don't wait. These discounted spaces go fast and this offer will not be repeated. Take action now and register! Tom Bird Atlanta Retreat
“PS--Experts who use their book as a platform find promoting their expertise much easier --and more credible.

“PPS--Have you thought about leaving YOUR legacy in writing? Go for it. You know that unless you MAKE THE TIME using a proven method, it'll just be one of those big sighs of regret over leaving it undone. The time for action is NOW.”
Can you tell that Patrice is excited about this method? When I heard about this event, I got very excited myself. Maybe that's because I have four or five unfinished novels rattling around in my head, and need a jumpstart like this to get them down on paper. If your own inner author (fiction or non-fiction) has been crying to be let out, this might be helpful for you, too. Or if you know someone else who's been looking for a way to get into--and stay in--"the Author's Zone State," please feel free to forward this information to them. Thanks!
