If you're like me, you wake up thinking about all the things you need to do today. Then, after you wrestle to get your family ready for the day, you finally open your email and find at least three fires to put out before you can do anything else. Writing you book quickly falls to the bottom of the priority list ...
Instead of picturing the chaos of everyday life, now imagine being removed from the day to day demands for a few days. You will work on your book outline, marketing plans, and most importantly - YOU WILL WRITE. You're surrounded by a dozen like minded entrepreneurs cheering you on, a professional writing coach, a social media and PR expert, and a brilliant book marketing expert.
The venue is in the vibrant neighborhood of Playa Vista ... also called Silicon Beach for it's proximity to the beach and prominence of technology companies. It's less than 15 minutes from LAX and Venice Beach.
It's a closed door session designed to get you writing results and shift you from 'wanting' to write a book to 'getting it done'!
During this exclusive retreat you'll meet 12 other non-fiction writers (who knows ... your perfect promotional partner could be in the room!?). And, you'll work side by side with our professional team to overcome any obstacle you're facing with your book ... and you'll spend solid eight hours writing!
That's right, we're not lecturing and giving you a bunch of work to do when you get home. We are going to help you brainstorm key elements of your book, discuss the most effective marketing approaches, and do team exercises to get the most powerful book marketing plan possible in place. You will also have one on one time in private offices with any of our experts to help you personally with your book and your marketing plans. And, in between that, we're going to block off time for you to write uninterrupted. Phone calls and texting will be strictly prohibited during writing hours.
With that kind of support , camaraderie, and forced focus time, you're going to make more progress on your book than you would in 3 months (or even 3 years for some!) on your own. That is like throwing gas on the fire.
We are not going to say you'll finish your book in 2.5 days (that would be pretty incredible!), but we promise you'll get more done on your book in that time that you've done in months ... possibly years. You'll walk out with complete clarity about your book project, how you're going to best market it when you're done, and a plan of what you need to do to finish your book and get yourself ready for a successful launch.
When: June 21st - 23rd
Where: Los Angeles, CA
You can be in the idea phase of creating your book, or you can be half-way into writing your book. Either way, you'll benefit from this customized writing experience.
Who this is not for:
If you're not willing to support others or connect with other authors this is not a good fit for you. The Book Launchers community is about lifting others up as we climb, creating massive success for our clients, and fighting the good fight against boring books!
The approximate schedule is as follows:
Thursday, June 21st: 5pm - 9pm *includes dinner
Friday, June 22nd: 9am - 6pm *includes lunch
Saturday, June 23rd: 9am - 4pm *includes lunch
We will be in touch 14 days prior to the event to collect important information including where you are currently at with your book project, what you want to get out of the retreat, and, of course, any dietary restrictions.
Your ticket to securing massive progress on your book, and meeting some great people is only $699.
And, if you'd prefer a payment option for your ticket, you can select our 2 monthly instalments of $389.
The fine print: We're testing the format for this retreat so we are looking for open minded people who want to take some time away to make some massive progress on their book. We are 100% committed to creating a great productive experience for you, and if you are unhappy with the experience we'll do whatever we can to make it right.
Because there is a lot of scheduling and logistics to work out in advance, we do want you to know our refund and cancellation policy.
If you cancel before June 5th, we'll issue a 75% refund of the amount you paid. If you wish to transfer your ticket to someone else at any time prior to June 18th, we'll do that no problem. We won't find someone for you to transfer your ticket to though. You have to do that.
After June 5th there will be no refunds. After June 18th no transfers.
