When You Have A Book Idea That Can Truly

Make a Difference, You Can’t Afford to Keep It to Yourself

Learn How to Get Your Book Done

at This One-Day Intensive Workshop Designed Especially

For Coaches, Experts and Thought Leaders Who Want to

Share Their Special Gifts  With the World


Dear Aspiring Author,

I’m writing to you because I know you’ve been holding back. Yes, you’ve wanted to write a book for a long time. You know it will bring you more business, help get your coaching practice launched, or bring you more lucrative speaking engagements. But let’s talk about the REAL reason you want to write this book:

You know your book could really help people–In fact, you know it could even change lives!

You have a story to tell and it is so powerful because you lived it–you made it through health issues, unemployment, family issues, spiritual renewal. And now you want to share what you’ve learned with the world. You have an audience waiting for your message, your story could help so many people. So you know it’s important to get your book written!


…at the same time the enormity of the task overwhelms you. Your material is so vital and important that you fear doing everything wrong! You don’t want to write poorly, you don’t know how to publish it properly, you don’t know how to bring it to the people. You’re so caught up in not doing anything wrong that you end up not doing anything at all!

I think that’s a shame, especially since I daily witness the positive changes a book can make. Every book that doesn’t appear is an opportunity lost for both the author and for the reader who is looking for that right message at the right time.

But what if I told you that we could make it all simply crystal clear for you? In fact,

In Just One Day We Can Assemble

The ENTIRE Blueprint for Your Book Project


You would get every KEY piece of information you need including…

  • How to decide what to write about
  • Developing your material for bestseller potential
  • Writing and editing your manuscript like a pro
  • How to MONETIZE your book so it can be profitable for your business
  • The pros and cons of every publishing method and how to choose one
  • The most effective ways to market your book so you stand out to your target audience

Is this the kind of help you’re looking for? I thought so! That’s why I put together this intensive one-day workshop along with some of the best experts I know in the business to help you get exactly what you need to get your book written and published!

“How to Write & Publish Books

That Change Lives” Workshop

University of Connecticut, Stamford

May 19, 2012       8AM-5PM


Sponsored by


In this powerful hands-on live event you will learn to tell your story in the most powerful, most effective way possible. Then we will give you all that you need to know to get your work published and in the hands of the people who want to read it. We held this event in October 2011 and the results were so remarkable that we decided we had to do this again so more people who want to write  life-changing books will have the information they need to get it done.

This Student Says…

“If you have a book in you, invest in this workshop and get practical help with writing, targeting your audience with surveys, book design, self-publishing vs. a more traditional route, and an overall marketing strategy. Learn from the experts and save yourself some grief.”

–Mary Ellen Jones
Co-Author, Women on Fire: 20 Inspiring Women Share Their Life Secrets (and Save You Years of Struggle!)

Here’s what to expect at the workshop:


Morning: “Assembling and Organizing Content; Writing and Editing Your Manuscript” with Sophfronia Scott

You know you have a wonderful story and tons of great information, but how exactly do you fit it all into a real book that flows smoothly from chapter to chapter? We will start from the very beginning and you’ll see how you can create not just any manuscript, but one your audience will WANT to read. Bring your pens or computer because you will be writing!

Morning Keynote Speaker: Rosemarie Terenzio, Author of Fairy Tale Interrupted

John F. Kennedy Jr.’s formal personal assistant will share with us her personal journey of losing her close friends and writing her New York Times Bestselling book. Her quest to find a publisher was not an easy one. Wait until you hear her tale of multiple rejections and her determination to tell her story in the way she felt was right–and best for her. Anyone who wants to be an author will benefit from Rosemarie’s inspiring model of perseverance.

Lunch will be provided

Afternoon Keynote: Pamela Slim, author of Escape From Cubicle Nation

One of the most popular bloggers on the web, Pamela will join us via Skype to talk about the importance of getting your message out and how to make the vital connections you need to make to successfully market your book.

Afternoon Session 1: The Traditional Path to Publishing

A panel of top New York City publishing experts, editors and agents will tell you the real deal about what they want to see if you want to get a book deal from a traditional publishing house.


Afternoon Session 2: “The Brave New World of Ebooks and Self-Publishing” with Sophfronia Scott

There are many ways to “do-it-yourself” in the publishing game. We’ll cover the many avenues of self-publishing including e-books and discuss how you can decide which route is best for you.

Praise from “How to Write & Publish Books

That Change Lives” Workshop Students


“Sophfronia Scott’s amazing workshop was not only inspirational but filled with practical information. Each professional speaker brought their own perspective and experience to the table about the process of writing, selling and/or promoting a book. However, there was a golden thread of advice offered throughout the day from several of the presenters, beginning with Sophfronia, which, I believe,was a pearl of wisdom (and major stress reliever)… ‘Don’t think of your book as the be all and end all but as a piece of your work.’ Writers write and re-write and re-write again… If you dare to take out that blank piece of paper and start to give your ideas a voice, bravo! But I, for one, am glad to know that Sophfronia Scott is there to help at any step along the way!”
