Author, professor and CEO Ocean Robbins and his father are examples of transformational writers. He recalls:
“I was ten-years-old when my dad first began to write Diet for a New America. It was the first book to expose the truth about factory farms, and the link between food and our planet, to a wide audience.
“In the five years after the book’s publication in 1987, beef consumption in the United States dropped by 25%, and my dad received more than 50,000 letters from readers, thanking him for changing their lives.
“As we’ve seen in our family, sometimes writing can change the world.”

“Christine’s Transformational Author Experience® was an invaluable resource for being able to put it all together and get my book out to the world.”
Here is her video for the book – maybe it will give you some ideas for your own promotion:
Carrie Jolie Dale was quoted in Christine Kloser’s newsletter [sign up at ChristineKloser.com] :
“When I started writing The 2 Choices, I had no idea that writing the book would be the easy part! These days, authors have to wear many hats—the writing hat (of course) but then there is the marketing hat, the networking hat, the sales hat, the platform building hat—and a few others as well.
“In other words, you sort of have to be good at many things, or at least know where to find the right help. Rather than running myself ragged trying to do all those things on my own, I sought help from several experts and Christine Kloser was one of those.
“Christine’s Transformational Author Experience® was an invaluable resource for being able to put it all together—this book writing quest. I credit Christine for providing resources that kept me in the game, when it started to feel overwhelming.
“I am grateful to have had her help along the way. Thanks so much Christine, for making my dream of getting my book, The 2 Choices, out into the world.”

Quotes by leaders from the 2014 classes:
“My English teacher said, ‘Lisa, you have to be the weakest writer I’ve ever met in my entire life.’ I realized that some motivation will come wrapped in sandpaper.
“Instead of having inspirational motivation, I had a little bit of “I’ll show you” motivation.
“And so, while I don’t wish that on anyone else, if you can place situations in your life that are challenging or hard that may not be all they are because you can’t determine or define every situation in your life to be the way you want them to be.
“So, some things have occurred, but if you can re-purpose them to serve as your fuel, not your fortress, between you and your goal.”
Lisa Nichols [Her book No Matter What! hit 6 bestsellers lists.]

Marci Shimoff : “Writing takes practice. But even beyond the benefits of honing your writing skills through practice, there’s something MORE that’s awaiting you with each word your write.
“When you approach writing as a practice in and of itself, not as something you do to improve your own writing skill – rather something you do to improve your Self – this is the practice of writing, and it is the very thing that will empower and inspire you to put your best words on the page and make a difference with your message.”
Marci Shimoff led Class 3: “The Practice of Writing.”

Mark Matousek : “Though a majority of writers – both amateur and professional – struggle with anxiety over their work; too little is understood about this ‘occupational hazard’ called fear.”
Class 4 was led by Mark Matousek: “Writing Through Fear: Overcoming Your Creative Demons.”
