Now that I have the book, people have been reaching out for radio and podcast interviews. I also already have a few new clients as well!
Thanks again! The dream is now my reality.” Ben Gioia
She helped me clarify my book’s message and structure and even aligned my plans for the kindle book within my overall business strategy. Without her I would still doubt whether writing a book made any business sense for me.
Cathy gave me encouragement when I most needed it. And when I got frustrated because I had tried to cram three books worth of content into one book, she also helped me to concise the book down to make it manageable.
I was really looking forward to the weekly skype calls I had with Cathy. This held me accountable for my week’s writing goals and made sure that I got the book done within the given time frame. Furthermore Cathy also helped me formulate a launch plan to maximise book sales, aim for best-seller rankings, and she already gave me ideas for my next book.
Apart from that Cathy is just wonderful to work with. I can’t recommend her highly enough, and I hope I will work with her again in the future.” Sandra Boehner
She brings the perspective while leaving the full space to the other party. Her self-confidence seems natural and her creative ambition underlies everything she does. One can feel her trust in the process itself. Her multifaceted knowledge base and experience of business, coaching, strategic positioning, marketing, multimedia, social media and most things digital in parallel with her absolutely outstanding people skills, give her a broad perspective to draw from when developing or collaborating on projects.
Solid. Brilliant. Intuitive. Authentic.” Ulrika Simoneau
“I met Cathy a few years ago in a mastermind group, I’ve read her books and taken her courses. I’ve also had the pleasure to interview her for my podcast: she delivered a massive amount of great insights that my audience loved! Cathy is a world-class teacher and mentor, and a lovely person. I love her teaching style and the fact that she always provides a real action plan that helps her clients and students get the results they’re looking for. Can’t recommend her enough!”Giuseppe Fratoni
“I was referred to Cathy by colleagues who had benefitted from her advice. Cathy kept her promises, an all too rare trait in this age of social networks and distant relationships. She was a delight to work with, able to handle difficult conversations with a light touch and grounded in a deep experience of this new field of self publishing.”Khurshed Dehnugara
“I worked with Cathy on publishing my first ebook, which became a top five Amazon bestseller in its category within days of release.
Not only were her course and instruction organised, thorough and well presented, Cathy also answered all my questions directly, updated me with the latest information, and continuously added value to the whole process.
I would highly recommend Cathy to anyone seeking in depth knowledge on e-publishing, marketing, social media and furthering their business.”Michael Milton
“Fantastic course, delivering all that it promises. This course has some of the best content out there when it comes to publishing… Top quality sessions jam packed with useful content and actionable items topped up with motivation too…”
“One of the best courses I’ve ever seen. This is by far one of the best courses that I have ever taken. The content is very thorough, the pacing is just right and the quality is excellent. I highly recommend this course if you are looking to publish your book on Amazon.”
“It’s All Here. ….well set out, easy to follow (particularly the contents page, and re-formatting the book for kindle, which can get quite complex, but very easy to follow along in this course) …. I have no hesitation recommending this course. Also regular updates, and an mentor who genuinely is there to support you, is priceless.”
“This course goes insanely in depth on how to figure out the correct approach to every aspect of creating and launching your kindle book…. “
“…I’ve been on a lot of kindle webinars, listened to top authors talking about getting a book out there, and I have to say, this course beats them all….”
“This is one of the most helpful courses that I’ve ever taken. The information is presented in a way that is clear and easily consumed.”
“Cathy provides real value and takes you step by step through the process. This leaves me feeling that the result is achievable. I feel motivated and not overwhelmed.”
“Best course ever! Cathy can explain everything related to creating, publishing and promoting books MUCH better than everyone I’ve seen. She covers all angles in this course. Take it, you’ll love it, and will learn SO much.”
“Jam packed … has everything you need to know and more. This is a terrific course! Cathy offers everything you need to know to not only get your book published but to get it ranking well within Amazon. She breaks down everything you need to know and do into bite-sized chunks and shows you how to do each step as you look over her shoulder. I particularly enjoyed her sharing pros and cons of different strategies, which are “optional”, which may be a waste of time etc. I’m all for getting to the goal as quickly as possible! I’ve seen courses in this area that offer much less value than this one does for a whole lot more money so whether you are just beginning on this journey or are already a published author looking for a few new strategies, you will get something from this course.”
“Stunningly Simple, Yet Packed with Value. I loved this course. Cathy Presland presents helpful writing exercises in a concise, yet highly valuable manner. She has a simple and direct way of sharing information. Her videos are slides only, voiced by her, so the information is easily absorbed. The 3-minute format for the writing exercises is perfect for people like me who can be overwhelmed by large, daunting tasks. I can’t recommend this course highly enough, and I will definitely be seeking out more of Cathy’s courses in the future.”
“I absolutely adore this course, from the instructors smooth soothing voice, to the interesting way ideas and instructions are presented. It is very motivating. It fires up my excitement, and it creates a feeling of I cannot wait to get started on my projects. Furthermore it encourages your writing by the way you are taking notes, capturing life in snippets here and there to savour and use on that special project. I love the “How To” format rather than a “What to”. The “How To” leads you right into doing it right now. To apply life as it happens and use it each time that I sit down to write. To fall in love with my own writing style. You have ignited my writing passion all over again. I cannot wait to get started, to be able to use all the great suggestions that you have given to me. Thank you!”
“This course is amazing for people like me who have a lot to write about but don’t know where and how to start. I’m all motivated now to keep writing for the rest of my life! Thank you Cathy!”
“You’ll feel like you’re sitting down at a fine expensive restaurant being served magnificent dish after dish. Filling yourself with aromas, principles, perspectives and love. Building your thirst for the next lesson and exercise, zapping your brain into writing action.”
“I loved this course so much…”
Book Promotion Course
“A Superb Resource. Goodreads for Authors is one of the best investments I have made in terms of building an on-line presence. The course is extremely well structured with sections logically sequenced – and packed with practical information. For those new to Goodreads (or thinking of opening an account), the course is a ‘must’ and will save you an immense amount of time. I opened my Goodreads account a couple of weeks before joining the course, but had done little with it (its big and looked complicated). I have used the course lectures to update my Goodreads account in ‘real time’ when watching each video – which made getting to grips with the site very simple indeed! Given that Amazon have just bought Goodreads, I think it even more important for Kindle/CreateSpace authors to have a presence on the platform – and you can do no better than buying into this course to really make the most out of Goodreads. I highly recommend this course. ”
“A very well presented explanation. It is rare in the Indie book space to find a tempting offer that actually delivers. All too often one finds oneself fleeced and floundering with a growing burden of guilt that you really do not know what you are doing. This course is a glowing exception. It explains the mysteries of Goodreads even to someone who has been a member for two years and really ought to have got a grip by now. The video format works well and the interaction between Cathy and Michelle creates an authentic learning experience so often missed by ‘how to..’ tomes. Well done!”
