MIMI’S EULOGY TO-BE & LEGACY now has a new title


MIMI’S EULOGY TO-BE & LEGACY now has a new title

‘LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE’ by writing your own eulogy.

by Mimi Emmanuel

When you get a kick up the bum from your Guardian Angel...

This is an easy quick one hour which is likely to change your life for the better even if you only read the book.

Mimi’s eulogy to-be & legacy has been re-titled to reflect more accurately what is inside the book.

‘LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE’ by writing your own eulogy.

Includes sample eulogy to-be, templates and reverse-engineer how to’s.

 

By the word of The Lord were the Heavens made

By The Breath of His Mouth

By the word of the Lord were the heavens made;
and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

So God created man
in his own image,

in the image of God
created he him;

male and female created he them.

God created the heavens and the earth by the breath of His mouth and we were made in His image.

thoughts become words

All of us live forever

Mimi believes in living forever, but even if you don’t believe in an afterlife, you will still leave an imprint and live forever in the hearts of your loved ones.

Religion does not have to come into it. As Tony Judt puts it so eloquently, we’re all responsible for the impact we have on the people around us.

The following is quoted from Tony Judt, historian, (02/91/1948-06/08/2010).

Just months before the historian Tony Judt died of ALS in 2010, he gave an interview to Terry Gross on NPR’s Fresh Air. When she asked him about his spiritual beliefs, he replied as follows.


I don’t believe in an afterlife. I don’t believe in a single or multiple godhead. I respect people who do, but I don’t believe it myself. But there’s a big “but” which enters in here: I am much more conscious than I ever was, for obvious reasons, of what it will mean to people left behind once I’m dead.

It won’t mean anything for me, but it will mean a lot to them, and it’s important for them, by which I mean my children or my wife or my close friends, that some spirit of me is, in a positive way, present in their lives, in their heads, in their imaginings, and so on.

In one curious way I’ve come to believe in the afterlife as a place where I still have moral responsibilities, just as I do in this life, except that I can only exercise them before I get there. Once I get there, it’ll be too late.

So no god, no organized religion, but a developing sense that there’s something bigger than the world we live in, including after we die, and that we have responsibilities in that world.

Few, if any, of our Facebook or Twitter friends will be at our death bed, or care either way.

How will we be remembered by our close friends and family members? How did we or do we impact their lives on a daily basis?

THOSE WE LOVE NEVER GO AWAYWhat unique task were we given and how did we live up to this?

I highly recommend downloading the template included in the book and following the instructions for guaranteed results.

DESCRIPTION

Why on earth would anyone ever want to write their own eulogy-to-be? 

Well, sometimes life just sucks, and then consequently your eulogy would suck too. COVER EULOGY TO BE 5x8-Book cover 3D thick MASTER 200917Double whammy.

The word eulogy-to-be is a concession we had to make because certain family members became quite traumatised when the subject of writing a eulogy popped up.

If a eulogy is a celebration of life then a eulogy-to-be is a write-up for the purpose of getting perspective on life so that we can adjust course if necessary, and celebrate life every single day, and not miss out on our own final party.

Mimi’s Guardian Angel did a fine job writing her eulogy-to-be and keep her on track. As in, “Hey there, is this how you would like to be remembered?”

Live Your Best Life By Writing Your Own Eulogy is a sample of how to write your own eulogy and includes a template with directions for anyone at any stage in their life to create a life filled with joy.

Is it possible to design a path to Joy and heal your Life?

How do we get the life we want? Sometimes we need a wake-up call to understand that “Our life does not just ‘happen,’ but whether we know it or not, it is carefully designed by us as quoted from Dr Covey’s bestseller.

Your Story creates a legacy; make it the best it can be!

Yes, you can continue drifting through life and allow things to ‘happen to you.’ Or you can grab hold of it and ‘make it behave!’

There is something miraculous about sharing your dreams and aspirations with the universe; Angels listen in…

A MUST TO HAVE IN EVERYONE’S SPECIAL COLLECTION OF BOOKS!

on September 5, 2017
I found sweetness, beauty, hope, joy and love on every page of this short and happy book.
I paused, reflected and thought about my life as I live it on a daily basis and get to ask myself what my eulogy would be.
This is one of those special books that anyone should have.

Delightful, Captivating, Inspiring

on September 6, 2017
A delightful read that is light yet profound. It’s easy to read and surprisingly fun especially when considering the topic. So well done! I could feel the lift in Mimi’s step as she lived her life on purpose. I’ve definitely been inspired by this book and the novel idea of writing my own eulogy to be!

An inspiring read with a practical application

on September 4, 2017
If you’ve wondered what you’re meant to be doing with your life, take stock and read this! What a great idea for getting your life back on track …. how to reverse engineer your life. Love it!

This delightful read is the perfect prescription for ‘getting it right – now.’

on September 5, 2017
Thank God above for fresh lingerie and ‘Bonus Moments!’ This delightful read is the perfect prescription for ‘getting it right – now.’ Don’t wait until later to figure out what your very best life, joy and happiness are meant to be. Mimi offers a fantastic template to help you think about what really matters, here and now. My only regret is the author lives on the other side of the world and isn’t available to jaunt around with. Because if she was I’d be at her house every day soaking up her enthusiasm. I look forward to more from Ms. Emmanuel.

The Holy Grail of Book Launching, how the cover came about


The Holy Grail of Book Launching
The birth of a cover

by Mimi Emmanuel

LAUNCHING NOW get your discounted copy from Amazon here.

The Holy Grail of Book Launching by Mimi Emmanuel free download on 28, 29 and 30 Nov 2016 https://read.amazon.com.au/kp/embed?asin=B01NBAYM0L&preview=newtab&linkCode=kpe&ref_=cm_sw_r_kb_dp_I.0oybXE29Z02&tag=mosaichouse-20

I like to explain how the cover came about.

I asked my daughter to come up with a cover. She makes all my covers for me. She is GREAT!

She did an amazing job and I loved what she came up with. It looked like this.

The Holy Grail of Book Launching by Mimi Emmanuel https://read.amazon.com/kp/embed?asin=B01NBAYM0L&preview=newtab&linkCode=kpe&ref_=cm_sw_r_kb_dp_I.0oybXE29Z02&tag=mosaichouse-20

So why didn’t we go with this cover?

We didn’t use this cover because we couldn’t get it right.

What? It was right, yes? Well no.
One of the final steps before publishing is to make the cover thumbnail size to see what it looks like on Amazon and this beautiful cover looked like this thumbnail size.

The Holy Grail of Book Launching by Mimi Emmanuel https://read.amazon.com/kp/embed?asin=B01NBAYM0L&preview=newtab&linkCode=kpe&ref_=cm_sw_r_kb_dp_I.0oybXE29Z02&tag=mosaichouse-20

Mmm, see what I mean? It didn’t work. We couldn’t read the word ‘Grail.’ So it needed adjusting.

My daughter then set out to create the following covers to make the wording stand out more. These covers turned out marginally better but lost the elegance of the original cover.

I said, to my daughter, ‘How hard can it be to make this cover suited for Amazon.’ Just DO something, you know, colour, font, size, I dunno, make it work!’

She said, ‘Sure Mum. How about these?’

And these?

Talented kid huh?

But I liked the first one best, the turquoise coloured one, cause I thought it looked ‘elegant.’

i even had people vote on these covers but I just couldn’t get happy about it.

Hmmphh. Now what? Any of those covers would do, but I just didn’t ‘feel’ it.

My daughter said, ‘Mum, what do you want? What do you like? Why don’t you google ‘covers’ and see what comes up. When you see one you like, show it to me and I’ll take it from there.’

I didn’t really know what I liked other than I like ‘retro’ and ‘chalkboard.’

So I asked ‘Google Images’ and ‘Stock Unlimited’ and ‘Canva’ to show me ‘retro,’ vintage’ and ‘chalk board.’

Two images came up that I liked.  Now we have inspiration. All credit to the creators of these images. I couldn’t find their names.

find-this-graphic
infographic-sample

We then sat down, together this time, and played in www.canva.com for a night and came up with this.

20

I liked it!

BUT,  I did not feel that it carried the kind of authority that I believe came with the title.

Also, once more, it did not read great, once we turned it into a thumbnail.

20

Launch date was getting closer and closer and we still did not have a cover.

My daughter said, ‘Don’t worry about it, I’ll sort it,’ as she trotted off to do her volunteer coaching.

But I was worried because it had taken us months to get to this point and launch was now only weeks if not days away and I do not ‘do’ stress very well.

So, on my own this time I went back into the http://www.canva.com portal, thinking ‘BIG CLEAR FONTS’ and ‘I like vintage.’

I tested out each and every font on Canva and then gave my arms and shoulders rest till my daughter came home and showed her this cover.

13

Together we played a bit more and came up with this clearer and sharper picture.

hgbl-cover

After this I asked my daughter if she could take the image to Photoshop and enter the text of the subtitle in the little book symbol.

Another day we said down together once more and created the covers for the three volumes on the inside of the book.

And finally my daughter went to http://www.covervault.com to download a free 3D template to create a graphic for the three volumes.

THE HOLY GRAIL OF BOOK LAUNCHING BY MIMI EMMANUEL

A few people have asked how the covers came about and I thought to share the process. It literally took us nearly 6 months working on these, on and off to get to the final covers. Love um or hate um, this is it.

EDIT DATED 05/082017
I received feedback that the cover was a little arty and not necessarily looked as if they were designed to appeal to an audience of writers. For this reason I decided to create a poll. I asked my readers and audience to vote for their most favourite cover.

In addition we added  the words ‘3 VOLUME set.’ Because it was pointed out to me that readers, at a glance, didn’t realise that the book is actually a massive 3 VOLUME set at 363 pages.

These were the covers, with slightly changed heading that we added into the mix.

This is the cover that was voted overwhelmingly as a favourite cover.

We decided to follow the trend of some of the leaders in the industry and have one cover for the kindle, The Holy Grail of Book Publishing and a different cover for the paper copy of  The Holy Grail of Book Launching.

THE HOLY GRAIL OF BOOK LAUNCHING


BOOK LAUNCH NEW RELEASE

The Holy Grail of Book Launching

by Mimi Emmanuel

#1 Amazon bestseller in many different categories!

Highly recommend the Holy Grail of Book Launching

The Holy Grail of Book Launching (3 Volumes) is a sequel to Mimi’s Book Launch Plan and was written
THE HOLY GRAIL OF BOOK LAUNCHING BY MIMI EMMANUELfor my launch team specifically and all my readers, Indie Authors and Self-Publishers who asked me lotsa questions about launching. My promise to my readers is that I will share all the tips and tricks that helped me become a #1 multiple bestselling author.

This is one of those rare books that appeals to business owners, entrepreneurs and retirees equally. Why? Because if you’re a business owner or entrepreneur, it is your story that makes or brakes your business. And I have to meet a retiree yet, that does not have a story to tell.

Your story is your legacy. We should make it the best it can be.Your story creates a legacy

I continuously refer people to Self-Publishing School because it is with their help that I published my books and I honestly cannot recommend them high enough.
But readers and team mates continue asking me what did and how I  did it.
So I bundled all these questions together and where possible created mini tutorials such as the ones below because I was researching these subjects for myself anyway and thought I may as well share for all of us to get some joy out of it.

Some of these tutorials are available from this blog and can also be downloadedHOW TO POST TO THE BIG 5 SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS FOR FREE WITH ONE CLICK OF THE MOUSE as a pdf from my friends at Gumroad, such as for instance ‘How to post to the BIG 5 (Social Media Platforms) for free,  with one click of your mouse.

You can sign up to my newsletter to be informed of new tutorials or find out when my book launches.

MINI TUTORIALS

There are plenty more mini tutorials to come, such as for instance

  • How to create a proposal for my book.
  • How to create infographics for your books.
  • How to create structure for your book.
  • How to support fellow authors.
  • How to create a social media plan in seven easy steps.
  • How to create a book ad in five minutes or less.
  • Many more…

5 star review for The Holy Grail of Book Launching

HOW TO CREATE INFO GRAPHICS FOR YOUR BOOK?

Good quality info graphics are liked and shared three times more than other content. The great part is that infographics are a lot of FUN to create. This infographic tells you what the book contents are all about.

The Holy Grail of Book Launching gives 5 easy steps to launch. Each step has handy graphs with tick-off boxes so that you won’t miss a step.

5 easy steps to launch your book by Mimi Emmanuel from The Holy Grail of Book Launching

Below I share the other infographics for The Holy Grail of Book Launching. As you can see, these tell you in a nutshell the content of each chapter.

THREE VOLUMES

Anyway, as I was writing away the book became nearly 250 pages which is way too big! Not many readers like big books. Nor does it help to prevent overwhelm. So now what? Should I try to cut it down? Minimise the material? Bring it out in a series? I though about it for a second and after talking it over with some of my buddies decided to bring out three volumes. Volume One, Two and Three all in one go.

review for The Holy Grail of Book Launching

And because I do not like beating around the bush and wasting anyone’s time I give the good stuff up front in Volume One, which is only around 60 pages long.

THE HOLY GRAIL OF BOOK LAUNCHING 3 VOLUMES

CONTENT

Volume One

In Volume One I show you what I do and this includes my own 10 step marketing plan which includes my Marketing Event Calendar as well as my Social Media Plan and Promo sheet with check boxes and a cheat sheet which helps you to quickly book your promos and keep track of it all.

Volume Two

Volume Two will tell you all you need to know to launch your book successfully in an easy step-by-step guide with tick off boxes at the end of each chapter. Step number six is optional and a bonus which is not essential for a successful launch  but icing on the cake.

Volume Three

Volume Three is the Extra Awesome Sauce filled with information from my mentors and fellow bestselling authors sharing their secrets and tips.

DISCOUNTED

The three volumes of The Holy Grail of Book Launching cover everything you need to know about book launching.

Still discounted  for a limited period of time  The Holy Grail of Book Launching. For updates, you can sign up to my newsletter or go to my book landing page which tells you a little bit more about my book.

GREAT TIPS FOR AMAZON REVIEWS


Mini tutorial on Amazon reviews

AMAZON REVIEWS

Leading up to the launch of The Holy Grail of Book Launching I’ll be releasing mini 4tutorials all with great info and tips on How To Launch Your Book Successfully.

One question I get asked often is how to get great reviews on Amazon. I always answer this question the same way: ‘Write a great book!’

Is that all there is to it? This is where it starts for sure.  Without a great book you won’t get great reviews. But you’re right, there is more to it.

Can family and friends leave reviews? Think about it. Does not make much sense does it? Not unless they declare to be auntie, uncle, mum and sis so that we can measure the size of the grain of salt.

When I launched my books, none of my friends nor family knew about it. When I wrote my first book, My Story of Survival,  I did not want anyone close to me know how really ill I was.  Because we all live a fair distance from each other, I got away with this.
My second book, Mimi’s Book Launch Plan, did not seem to have any relevance to any of my family nor friends, so once more I did not mention it to anyone.

None of my close family nor friends share the same religion that I do, so for the third time I did not share my book God Healed Me with any of them.

Family and friends leaving a review therefore has never been an issue for me. However, the issue comes up every now and then with readers of Mimi’s Book Launch Plan asking me how to get reviews for their books. For you I wrote this mini tutorial.

Be sure to check in regularly with Amazon to stay updated with their current policies. Links are provided in the tutorial which can be downloaded in pdf format here.

MIMI EMMANUEL'S HOLY GRAIL OF BOOK LAUNCHING.png

How to
Get Support and Reviews on Amazon

Great Tips!

In accordance with Amazon guidelines, book authors and publishers may continue to provide free or discounted copies of their books to readers, as long as the author or publisher does not require a review in exchange or attempt to influence the review.

Every author wants good reviews. How do you get these? I’ve heard that less than one percent of readers of our books leave a review. Is this true? I had a browse on the web and could not get a definite number of it but here are some opinions from various forums. First from NotJohn from Amazon kdp community; you can find his response here, https://kdp.amazon.com/community/thread.jspa?messageID=842395

1Next we hear from Neil Campbell who is an ex Amazon Category Leader and Senior Product Manager and you can find his complete response here, https://www.quora.com/What-percentage-of-buyers-write-reviews-on-Amazon

2Finally, this comment from Sean Campbell on a reddit forum gives a bit more perspective on why reviews do not need to be linked to sales. You can find his comment here, https://www.reddit.com/r/writing/comments/3i6lwj/what_percentage_of_readers_buyers_leave_reviews

3As you can read from the comments above, it appears that very few readers leave a review.

How can we help this process along and entice readers to leave a review? I’ll mention some options that you may not be aware of. Or you may have heard about it and forgotten.

Before we get going. Under Amazon’s guidelines compensation is not allowed in return for a review. And when people are given an Advance Reader Copy (ARC) this is with the understanding that we welcome all feedback, both positive and negative.

FUN FACT ONE

It is OK for authors to leave a review for another author?
I’ve often heard people say that this is not allowed. It may not have been allowed in the past but it is allowed now according to Amazon’s guidelines,

4There are many ways how authors can support each other. I describe quite a few of those in Mimi’s Book Launch Plan.

Can I write a Customer review of my own book?

No, you cannot on Amazon. You are allowed to do so on www.Goodreads.com.  Amazon encourages authors to use our BOOK DESCRIPTION on our product page, the EDITORIAL REVIEWS and MORE ABOUT THE AUTHOR sections of our book details page, to communicate with our customers about our book.

FUN FACT TWO

Can I ask my family to write a Customer Review for my book? No, this is not allowed under Amazon guidelines. However, your family and friends can leave an editorial review.

5So what are you waiting for? Ask Auntie May and Uncle Bob to write an editorial review for your book which you can proudly display on your product page. Sure you can ask www.kirkus.com too, but why not ask your family first?

After sis and mom have told the world all about your book, you may not even feel that you need a Kirkus review any more.

FUN FACT THREE

If you’re like me, you thought that your family wasn’t allowed to sing your praises on Amazon; well we were wrong. Amazon gives our family and friends ample opportunity to participate.

Just recently I discovered that there is this nifty feature on Amazon called Customer Discussions.  Family, friends and customers alike are invited to discuss your book and communicate with each other. Isn’t that crazy good?

I found this note the other day when one of my readers left a comment in the Customers Discussion section here.

6Thank you for purchasing My Story Of Survival. You’re very welcome Stephen, it’s a privilege and a pleasure to be able to help fellow authors.

How cool is that?

7You can find the CUSTOMER DISCUSSIONS FEATURE by scrolling down on your author page, where you will find it at the bottom of the page.

You can find Amazon’s FAQ review guidelines here https://www.amazon.com/gp/community-help/customer-review-guidelines-faqs-from-authors
and customer review guidelines here, https://www.amazon.com/gp/community-help/customer-review-guidelines-faqs-from-authors
and editorial review guidelines here, https://authorcentral.amazon.com/gp/help?topicID=200649600.

FUN FACT FOUR

Amazon has a Hall of Fame Reviewers. And you can contact them and send them a copy of your book if they agree to that. If they like what they read, they may write a review for your book. Isn’t that just awesome?

It means that you get a fancy little badge next to the review alerting all other customers that a FAMOUS reviewer reviewed your book. Just like this, as for Scott Allan’s book: Rejection Reset.

8Amazon Vine Program

Be courteous when you ask a top reviewer if they are happy to read your book. You’ll have to do your homework before you approach a member of the Vine Program. Make sure that the Vine member is interested in books in your niche. It is no use to send a non-fiction book to a reader who specifically states that they are interested in fiction only and vice versa. You can find out about their preferences by browsing their profile page. Not all Vine members have their email address displayed on their profile page and you may have to do some detective work to find their contact details. You can look for their details on this page https://www.amazon.com/review/hall-of-fame and find out more about Amazon Vine here https://www.amazon.com/gp/vine/help.

9Alternatively, you can purchase Debbie’s Book Review Targeter which has done all the hard work for you and all you have to do is write an email to the Vine Member with your request. You can find the Book Review Targeter here http://getbookreviewsnow.com/.   I have not actually tried this myself yet.

FUN FACT FIVE

The above four FUN FACTS are free. Won’t cost you a penny to have another author review your book. It won’t cost to have mum or uncle or sis write an editorial review. Anyone can partake in the Customer Discussions and if you are lucky enough to score a review from a TOP reviewer, I’ll be celebrating with you!

If you’re happy to pay for it, you can try some of these services below to invite readers to read a copy of your book.

Be careful how you word your invite and take care to describe your book accurately to invite the right kind of readers for your book.

  • First ask family and friends for feedback on your book utilising Amazon’s features and possibilities as mentioned above.
  • Ask your Twitter and Facebook friends, Your Google+ buddies and Pinterest and blog followers if they’re interested in reading your book and sharing with their friends.
  • Organise you email list and ask humbly if they would like to read your book.
  • Insert a link in your book and ask readers for honest feedback.
  • Contact Amazon Top Reviewers from the Vine Program.
  • Try one of the services below and see how you go with that.
  1. BOOK RAZOR bookrazor.com
  2. READINGDEALS readingdeals.com/submit-ebook
  3. BOOK REVIEW BROKER bookreviewbroker.com
  4. NET GALLEY Netgalley.com

Let me know if I missed anything and I’ll include it in the update.

Warmest and in good faith,

Mimi
