The Book Inside of You
Helping you to Write, Publish and Market your Book
The Book Inside of You was launched in April 2018 after many people had approached me on tips on how to write a book. As a self-published author of five publications, I decided to put my knowledge and skills into action, using my own experiences to help others.
Inside every person is a story. A story that is fictional or a story that is true, a story to build people, a story to teach or even a story to encourage. Every person is creative in their own way. A story is something that we would like to tell the world about. It is the hidden word within us which when written produces something that becomes a reality. The Book Inside of You course is a simple programme to help those who are beginning their writing and publishing journey to get their feet off the ground. The Book Inside of you will enable you to put your idea from pen to paper, to publishing and marketing your book.
You can choose to do the course and/or use my services at any stage of your writing process.
Course - available online, one to one or group seminars
The Book Inside of You course is designed to teach you how to self-publish your work yourself from start to finish. This course is available in the above programmes and is broken down into three sessions. Costs are according to the teaching programme chosen.
Session 1 - Preparing Your Manuscript - 1 1/2 hours
In this session, I will help you to put together your first draft by looking at your vision, your aim and your audience along with a title (if you do not have one at present). If you have written something at present this session will help you to identify the purpose of your product. We will look at setting time frames, characters, using scriptures and quoting others, depending on the genre.
2. From Manuscript to Publication - 1 1/2 hours
In this session, you will learn how to prepare your manuscript for publication. This includes the style, font types and font sizes, the different ways that you can publish your work, copyrighting, ISBN numbers and cover designs.
3. From Publication to Marketing - 1 1/2 hours
In this session, you will learn about the different marketing tools to promote your work through organisations, magazines, TV, radio and social media.
"I really enjoyed the book writing course. I gained an invaluable amount of knowledge and improved my skills. I got so much information in such a short space of time. It was unbelievable. I would like to express my gratitude to Pastor Fiona Lynch for giving me the opportunity to increase my learning and understanding."
By Alison Callaghan who attended the teaching programme
"Before I did this course I did know how or where I was going to start my book and now I have the tools and plans I need to get started. This course was so easy to follow and understand and I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to write a book. The amount of help that is available from Fiona if you have any questions is amazing."
By Joanne James who has completed the online course
This service is for those who have written their manuscript (un-typed or typed) and need assistance with the publishing side of things such as editing, proof-reading, formatting, book cover design, ISBN's and all the other preparations necessary to publish your book. As each manuscript is different (i.e. a book, course or even a devotion) costs are assessed according to the amount of work that needs to be done. You own all rights of your work and all royalties are paid to you through the setting up of your own account.
Below are three books that I have assisted in the publication of their work from start to finish.
My first client was Jo Rudd who I had met at a Christian Writer's Book Club about eight years ago when I was invited to do a talk on the process of writing followed by how to market your book through social media at their annual conference. I had never imagined that I would be publishing her book for her. In the past I had helped a lady publish her book of poetry (a small project) and had assisted many by pointing them in the right direction, but this was different. Jo had written her manuscript on various bits of paper and because she was not good with the computer she could not type it. Inspired by the Holy Spirit I prayed over her work and just got on with it with Jo becoming my first official client. Today, as you can see, we have a happy Jo!
