The current partial draft is approximately 80% done and first complete draft manuscript of this book is scheduled for April 15. More content is being added every weekend. I intend to have the book completed and published by June 15th, but I am not going to make you wait until then.
Temporary Free Download
In the meantime, I have decided to incrementally release this book via my monthly newsletter. I have also decided over the next few months, you will also enable you to download the incomplete draft ebook in pdf format by clicking on the following button. All that I ask in return is that you let me know what you like and what you don’t like about the book. I am also interested in any missing content such as additional guidelines. Those of you who provide useful inputs prior to publication will be listed on the acknowledgements page of the book and will be entered into a drawing for five autographed copies of the paperback edition once the book is complete and placed on sale.
Please do NOT write a review of this early partial draft. Please wait until the final book is ready before reading and publishing your reviews.e late summer.
I’m Looking for Volunteers
I am currently looking for approximately 10-15 beta readers who will read the complete draft manuscript and send me suggested corrections and improvements. Beta readers will be rewarded with a free autographed copy of the book and their inputs acknowledged in the book’s acknowledgments page.
Book Launch Team
I am also currently looking for volunteers to join my book launch team. Members will receive an Advanced Review Copy (ARC), read it, and post a review on Amazon and Goodreads on launch day. They will also promote the book on their author website/webpages, book blog, newsletter, and social media. Book Launch Team members will receive a free autographed copy of the published book.
