Discover The Secret to Skyrocketing Your Expert Status…
Getting Your Message Out And Building Your Credibility
As an expert in your field (and you are an expert – you have a lot of knowledge, expertise and experience which many people would be grateful to learn!), you know the importance of getting your message out there to help others. But do you sometimes find it difficult to get heard? Do you sometimes find it hard to ‘stand out from the crowd’? You know that a book is a great way to differentiate yourself from everyone else – a physical book really boosts your expert credibility and opens so many doors. Perhaps you are put off by the thought of having to write 60,000 or even 100,000 words for a book, let alone the expense of publishing it? One author I know personally spent over $30,000 on getting his book published and promoted – publishers generally do not promote books, the author has to do all that.
Then why not join us in the next book in the Winning In Life And Work series? Write your own chapter and join us as we gather together experts from around the globe, combine our expertise, pool our resources, and replicate the same strategies which successfully got the first volume to best-seller status at launch.

As a professional speaker I have always known the importance of a book to position me as an expert. Although the thought of stepping into the unknown world of book development and promotion was at the very least terrifying. Partnering with Keith put me in the hands of a world leading expert. Not only did he support and guide me through the process associated with the book, I also learnt so much more. Strategies and ideas that will fast track other parts of my business. There is many people offering to publish books for you but if you want the “real deal”, then there is no one else you should be turning to except Keith. And the proof of his skills . I am now an international best selling author. SIMPLE AS THAT !!!!

Why Become A Published Author?
Spread Your Message More Widely
Being published in a book enables your message to reach even more people even more easily, spreading far and wide. Every time one of your co-authors sells a copy, your message goes with it!
Rocket Your Expert Status
Being in a published book increases your Expert status – “They have a book, they must be the expert” is people’s general response. Your own expert status and credibility sky-rockets by being in print.
Unlock More Opportunities
Being in a published book is the key to opening countless doors of opportunity, be it to greater access to markets, stronger credibility with future clients, and even to radio and television appearances.
Why Become A Co-Author?
You will complete your single chapter in a tiny fraction of the time it takes to write, re-write, edit, re-edit, proofread and re-write again an entire 100,000+ word book, saving you time and effort whilst getting your message out into the world much more swiftly and much more effectively.
With all of the costs associated with creating a book split between all of the co-authors, your very reasonable investment is a fraction of what you could expect to pay to create an entire book – and with us, we’ve already done it before so you can be confident that the results will amaze.
Just imagine having a big team of people highly driven to get your book out to as many people as possible. Interested? Meet your co-authors! 10+ times the coverage, 10+ times the exposure, for the same effort on your part. Now that’s an impressive return on investment by anyone’s standards!
Without Keith there would be no book! He was the organiser that originally inspired, cajoled and encouraged us to contribute a chapter. He took the reins and planned every step of the process. His diligence was impressive as we went through rounds of editing and formatting. His patience was nearly saintly. His drive, ambition and vision were an inspiration to all of us to follow-through, stay focused and continue to move to the next step. With his expertise, he created the website, the marketing, the launch and all the follow-up to the day we were published – and beyond!
Winning in Life and Work : Success Secrets
There is a huge group of people in the world who are looking out for good advice, information and personal stories to help them to make their own personal growth. There is also a huge number of experts (like you) out there who have just the information those people so desperately seek. Sadly, the two groups are often largely unaware of each other. Until now! Join us in the brand new book Winning In Life And Work : Success Secrets which, like its predecessors, brings together experts and seekers alike.
This brand new book, to which you are invited to contribute your own complete chapter, is the third in the international best-selling Winning In Life And Work series. Volume 1 (left), featuring 11 expert authors from a variety of fields, was launched in March of 2013 and immediately reached Bestseller status; the second book, New Beginnings (right), was launched in March 2015 and also immediately became an international bestseller, with contributions from 16 international experts from a diverse range of fields.
Spurred on by both the massive positive stories received from people who found help and growth after reading the first two books, and by the repeated requests he has received from other experts who recognise the importance of being part of this exciting project, Keith is proud to announce the creation of the next successful book in the series, Winning in Life and Work : Success Secrets. In this new book, experts like you are each contributing a chapter in their chosen field around the theme of Success Secrets – in whatever way that means to you. There is a wide scope to be covered, and it this book needs your contribution to make it complete and provide maximum value and benefit to its countless readers when it is published in 2016.
And we have lined up a special guest author for this volume, none other than Olympian Annette Lynch who shares with us some of the many lessons she has learned from being an Olympian, from helping professional athletes to transition to a new life beyond sport, and from helping countless people to find their voice as speakers on a global stage. From the Olympic Stage of Beach Volleyball to the corporate and conference stages on three continents, Annette Lynch is a Game Changer, and this is your opportunity to join her in this game-changing book.
The book will be available both in paperback via global stores including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones and more, and in electronic format for Kindle, iBook (iPhone, iPad and Mac), NookBook, Kobo and more. Naturally, there an only be a limited number of chapters in the book, and once they are sold, they are gone – that means that you need to get in quickly before they are all taken; and, the quicker you reserve your slot, the more prestigious the location of your chapter. So don’t delay. Read the details below, select your preferred author level, and reserve your chapter now!
Keith, can I just say a huge thank you to for your efforts with the book. When we first spoke this was just an idea – and is now an international bestselling book! Your hard work in bringing us all together and keeping on top of the process does not go unnoticed. For me it was such a smooth process – you managed everything very well. You opened things up to group discussion so it was a true collaboration while never losing sight of the overall objective and keeping us on track. Thank you!

I have had the pleasure of working with Keith as a co-author of the Number One, international best seller ‘Winning in Life and Work – New Beginnings’. Keith coordinated an international group of business leaders and professionals on this project. I commend his exemplary organisational, planning, and coordination skills. He is adept at managing various personalities and facilitating win: win outcomes. He builds confidence and strength in not only individuals, but also a team. His communication is always open, inquiring, and interested. He drives deadlines with a quiet confidence that inspires respect.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are We Guaranteed BestSeller Status?
Whilst it is not possible for anyone to guarantee any book will reach best seller status, we have a great and proven strategy which we’ll be using again this time round (the same one which got Volume 1 to best-seller). And best of all, you play an active part in the process – the more we pull together, the greater our chances of massive success!
Do I have to write 6,000 words? That sounds like a lot!
6,000 words can sound like a lot when you say it like that! On the other hand, a leisurely 90 minute keynote talk is 6,000 or more words (and that’s taking it slowly with plenty of space for the listeners to process what they are hearing, as well as space for Q&As). In fact, once you start you will probably find your biggest challenge will be keeping your chapter down to only 6,000 words!
Can I include pictures and diagrams?
In general, this is not possible. However, if you find that you absolutely can not convey your message without a picture, then we can certainly discuss this once you are in the project – we can find a solution for you.
I’ve never written a book chapter before, isn’t it difficult?
We will be supporting you every step of the way. Your webinars will guide you through the process of not only creating your first draft, but also editing and polishing your chapter.
Will I make a lot of money from the book?
It is a myth that all one needs to do is write a book and sit back waiting for the money to flow in. It is a rare book which makes a profit. Think of your chapter and the book as being a part of your marketing – while you are not likely to retire on the proceeds form book sales, the doors which being an Author in print will open for you can bring you considerable opportunity for reward.
I’d love to take part but can’t think of what to write.
This sort of problem is far more common that you might think. And it is precisely why the very first webinar which you get included all of the packages focuses exclusively on this very concern. It will take you from not knowing what to write about, to knowing exactly what specific topic you are sharing with the world – it’s a whole lot of fun too!
How rigid is the 6,000 word count? Can I write more (or even fewer) words?
6,000 words represents the upper limit (although if you go over by maybe 100 words then that’ll be OK, but no longer than that otherwise the book becomes too big and unwieldy). If you find that you really can’t write that many words then shorter is OK too, but you’ll want to be careful not to short-change your readers. If you aim for 5,500 – 6,000 words then you’ll be just right.
In what format do I need to submit my manuscript?
We will provide you with a Microsoft Word template to use, with style guidance. By sticking to these you will make the process a lot easier both for us and for you. If you can’t use Word, then a plain text file will be OK.
I may need some help, can I get some coaching?
Absolutely! When you join us at Expert Author level, you get a free 1 hour coaching call to use as you choose. Higher levels also get additional coaching calls.
Why do I need a printed book, can’t I just use an eBook like everybody else does?
eBooks are certainly very common these days – many are starting to feel they are too common, as pretty much everyone creates them which means they have lost a lot of their power. And crucially, you can’t hold an eBook physically in your hand – you can’t beat actually being able to show and touch a physical book, and it looks a lot more impressive on your stage or table!
I came across Keith as Editor of the book of which I am a co-author. Keith’s enthusiasm, patience and ability to deal with a group of co-authors was inspirational. Publishing a book from personal experience is a major challenge at the best of times, but Keith handled it well despite a few ups and downs outside his control. His understanding of all things to do with people is very impressive and was demonstrated during a long conversation we had after the books publication. As can be seen from his profile Keith is multi-talented and it shows in everything he undertakes

I had the pleasure of working with Keith for a few months in his role as Editor in Chief of the Best Selling Book Winning in Life and Work: New Beginnings. As a co-author of a chapter, I found that having Keith organising everything was wonderful. He was calm, helpful and close, always happy to help. My “muito obrigada”. I look forward to have another opportunity of working together. Cheers, Duda Prestes
