“We help people organize their lives and their research so they can kick-start their book projects,” McDaniel says. “We focus on how to write professional books and e-books that deliver increased customers, speaking engagements, respect, and money. To launch The Book Catalysts, we’re delivering a free webinar on June 26th.”
While many consultants, speakers, business owners, and health care professionals know they need to write a book to boost their careers, most don't. Why? Today with easy access to self-publishing, gatekeepers at publishing houses are no longer a good excuse. The biggest reasons they don’t write books are a lack of confidence and time.
“Confidence is such a huge issue with writers,” says McCullough, who is a longtime colleague of McDaniel. “During our free webinar on June 26th, we’ll explore our method to boost writers’ confidence, fit a book into their busy schedule, get off to a fast start, and use stories to create a strong, memorable finish.”
The free webinar “Write Your Book Now—Before Someone Beats You to It” starts at 3pm Pacific Time on June 26, 2012. The first 50 people who register for this free webinar receive a free copy of the 37-page special report: "89 Ways to Add Verve to Your Verbiage." (A $9.97 value.) Everyone who attends receives the free checklist "How to Write Something Once and Use it Dozens of Ways."

The Book Catalysts will share many tips in their free webinar on June 26th, including more details about these three:
1. Write 200 words each day, five times a week. This is so doable, even with a busy schedule, and the two-day break helps refresh energy for the book. Those 200 words often turn into 500 words once you’re on a roll, and before you know it, you’ve got a book!
2. Add stories to books to make them uniquely yours, including anecdotes, case studies, and examples.
3. Use similes to make something unfamiliar familiar. For example, in Lynda’s award-winning book Words at Work, she describes the writing process as "... like picking blackberries—
Readers quickly understand the writing process and receive validation for their efforts. “Writing a book can seem daunting,” McCullough adds. “But armed with our tricks of the trade, everyone can write a high-quality book or e-book to increase their profits and enhance their professional prestige.”
