IACCW Member Event: Authenticity & Collaboration: Feminine Marketing Tools for Conscious Writers to Reach their Ideal Readers

October 31, 2013

Julia McCutchen interviews Linda Joy

Authenticity and collaboration are at the core of the feminine approach to marketing which has been proven many times over in recent years as one of the most effective ways to spread the word far and wide about your writing.
In this topical interview, you will learn how to allow your authentic voice to permeate all your interactions with your audience, from your website to your social media and more.  You’ll also see how collaborating with other authors in your genre is one of the most powerful ways to reach your ideal readers.
By the end you will understand:

  • Why authenticity is the Divine thread that attracts your ideal readers to your writing and to your online door.
  • Why authors embracing the feminine principle of collaboration are reaching their ideal readers and thriving in their genre.
  • How Linda Joy attracted a loyal tribe of 10,000 passionate, engaged readers in less than 100 days – and you can too!

As Publisher of Aspire Magazine and founder of Inspired Living Publishing (publisher of two best-selling books in 18 months), Linda Joy knows first- hand how important creating a tribe of loyal readers is. In the first 100 days of entering the virtual world in late 2009 she created a thriving tribe of over 10,000 women – with no marketing background. Today Linda’s heart-centered authentic marketing model has catapulted her to the forefront of the women’s inspirational publishing and virtual event genres with over 35,000 female subscribers and over 11,000 in her social media family.

Symposium Snippets: Wise Words for Writers – Part 1

May 15, 2012

2012Symposium_logoThe IACCW 2012 Symposium brought together an inspiring mix of bestselling authors and international experts who are each making an important contribution to the world from their particular area of expertise.

Conscious and creative writers have an important role to play in this year of major change and transformation.

Authors who have already succeeded in expressing their message with authenticity and impact have a great deal of experience to offer writers who are on their way to doing the same.

Here are some of the key points from the first three of our Symposium Speakers to support you as an author:

Lynne McTaggart, award-winning journalist and author of six cutting edge books that have been translated into 28 languages, spoke to us on Understanding the Bond: the Power of Stories to Change our World

  • Stories engage people emotionally so you need to draw the reader towards the key point(s) of your book in an enjoyable way by telling lots of stories interspersed with your central message.
  • “Show don’t tell” applies to non-fiction as well as fiction.
  • Make sure your background research is solid and build a relationship with your reader through stories.
  • Be prepared to live and breathe your topic in order to write authentically.
  • It’s time for a new world story and writers have a key role in telling that new story in their own way. We need to look deeply, demonstrate what “is”, entertain, and inspire people to positive action.


From the Publisher’s Desk – The 3 “Cs” of Successful Authorship

March 5, 2012

Chance_RedDiceI recently had lunch with Michael Mann, publisher at Watkins Publishing. Many years ago, Michael took a chance and offered me my first publishing job as a desk editor for the company he founded, Element Books. We’re still friends and colleagues today.

Most writers would relish the opportunity of a publisher “taking a chance” to publish their book and support them to succeed as an author.

Despite the tough marketplace we’re all facing right now, such scenarios are playing out in publisher’s offices around the world as books are commissioned to fill the all important publishing schedule.

So if you’d like to succeed as a traditionally published author, how do you maximize the likelihood of this becoming your reality?

I asked Michael what he is looking for from authors today and what strategies really work when it comes to selling books. His response can be summarized under 3 headings: content, charisma and connection.

The A-Z of IACCW Membership by Charter Member Margaret Abraham

February 28, 2012

Alphabet_AtoZI joined the IACCW as a Charter Member because of the words conscious and creative, they just hit the right cord. The world of writers, authors, and publishers felt totally alien to me. Having an urge to start writing was one thing, but where to start was another.

I know the world of difference a good coach can make when starting out on a new adventure so I took a deep breath and signed up.  I have not been disappointed.  The A-Z of IACCW is my experience of the journey so far:

A is for Authenticity – Alignment with your soul.   Awareness of what you are capable of, and who you are becoming.

B is for Breathe to slow you down, relax, tune in.

C is for Commitment to write each day.  Connecting with our Creator.

D is for Developing & deepening your writing practice. Discovering your authentic voice.

E is for Evolving – connection, creativity, inspiration.

F is for Feedback and encouragement from Julia and IACCW facebook friends.
