Congratulations to Yael and her Udderly Fantastic Goat Journals

Congratulations Becky on Your New Journal

So, after having Bruce Jones as a guest presenter in my Journey to Authorship class, on how to create a journal/devotional/coloring book...I put together what I wanted and had my cousin put it together after she attended the class. Well, she finished it, and together I walked her through how to upload it to CreateSpace to be available on Amazon.com. Well...we did that last night... today she already has it in her hot little hands! Me? I ordered copies to give to my BNI (Business Networking International) group. Because I ordered enough for my own chapter, I'm told it will be here in 3 weeks! Talk about exciting! This journal is a tracking system for people who use networking to grow their businesses and is available on Amazon...ALREADY! http://amzn.to/1ZJgoTt Becky Norwood of Spotlight on Business

Honestly Bruce, this is a really great program!
I wasn't expecting much for $100, but as usual, you under promised and over delivered by at least 10X!
As an author of two other books, this could have save me a least 50 hours of my time!

Thank you Howard Hale, Hale Snydicate.com

Customer Testimonial

Thank you very much.
I am a self published author with CreateSpace already but in the juvenile fantasy genre. I was looking for something with more earning potential to fill my starving author pockets. Putting together a journal sounded like a great idea, but I had no idea what I was doing. I was about to give up on this idea when I stumbled across your course. Thank goodness!!! I was trying to do the interior pages in Microsoft Word. It was driving me crazy. You just sneeze at the keyboard and everything moves.
I have gone through a number of your videos already and have my interior all done with Power Point. Now I'll do the cover and I'm ready to submit. It's called 'My Fur Baby's First Experiences and Beyond' and geared toward new dog owners.

I can't thank you enough. Have an awesome day.

Kind regards
