New Unleash the Book Inside workshop dates

a5-sideFollowing the recent success of the Unleash the Book Inside workshop, we are pleased to announce new dates.

See here for the feedback from previous attendees

From its initial inception as a creative writing course, the workshop has now grown into a whole new concept.

Not only do aspiring authors get to learn about the publishing industry but also they will leave with an amazing array of new skills and learning a new way of thinking, being and doing ….

In the workshop, authors will define and design their book structure and their writing, publication and marketing plans. They will also learn the skills of Whole Brain and Whole Mind Thinking.

Tom Evans uses mind maps to get authors to see the world in a whole new way by opening up new neural pathways in their brains.

During the two day course, Tom takes authors on guided visualisations to help them tap into their creative muse.  He also demonstrates where light bulb moments come from and how to tap into them on demand to get your book to virtually write itself.

Tom will also show you the many ways to publish your book for free and how you can develop significant passive revenue streams.

The workshop is running in Surrey on the 30th September & 1st October.

There are only 20 places available and the first 10 people to book get the early bird price and catch the worm …..

If you want to get published IN 2009, this workshop will show you how !!!!
