Greetings, wonderful, savvy people,
Exactly 11 years ago today, I first kicked sugar and refined carbs and got a better life.
And today, more than a decade since I became reborn, I'm launching an unusual marketing campaign to promote my next book, The White-Out Diet.
The catch is that it's not out yet. My goal is to have it hit bookstores and your favorite online retailer Jan. 2009.
The economy is prompting me to do something really
different so that I can get a book deal for my next book, The White-Out Diet,
which I know could help many.
Please see this email (below), which I just sent to members of my mailing list.
If you can help, I'd really, really appreciate it!
Anyhow, my goal is to help millions, and I think I can, but I need wonderful people like you to spread the word! Please read on.
Thanks in advance ever so much!See letter below.
Warmly and gratefully,
Subject: Help me, please… The White-Out Diet, my next book, is coming with your help — benefits galore
Dear [Your Name Goes Here],
Would you like to lose weight for good,banish fatigue,
boost your energy, feel and look
more youthful, get more oomph in the bedroom
and build a life of passion, purpose and pizzazz?
Well, The White-Out Diet, my next book (the follow-up to SUGAR SHOCK!), is intended to help YOU
achieve ALL of that — and more.
This book, I hope, will come out in January 2010.
But here's the catch: I need your help so that this book will become a reality and be available to you through bookstores,libraries and
You see, while this fun, easy-to-read,
friendly, compassionate book can help
you in so many ways, these challenging
economic times are prompting me to
rely on you.
Let me explain.
Like all other industries, the
publishing industry has been hit
by the economic downturn.
Publishers are tightening their belts and making less
So my literary agent explains to me.
More importantly, major publishers only want to make book
deals with people, who are household names
— movie stars, TV personalities, celebrities and so on.
And publishers only want authors with a "Big
— this means millions (or least hundreds of
thousands) of followers, fans and friends.
Therein lies my challenge.
While editors at publishing houses loved my White-Out
concept and my background as author of an acclaimed
book (SUGAR SHOCK!)
from a major publisher (Berkley Books,
part of the Penguin Group), their
enthusiasm was dampened
because I'm not a household name — yet.
And while I do have a Big Platform,
it's not big ENOUGH — yet.
But I'm determined to get The White-Out Diet published so
it can help you.
So I realized that it's time to put the Law of Attraction
And I'd be grateful to you for any help you can give to
make this happen.
The White-Out Diet is a great book, and it deserves to be
hands next January, 2010, so it can help you.
Ultimately, this challenge presents an
It's time for me to become pro-active,
creative and what I call "author-preneurial."
I'm even planning some outrageous, exciting activities
drum up the necessary attention in The White-Out Diet, because
I KNOW this book
can really enhance, improve and change your life.
(Got any clever, out-of-the-box marketing and promotion
ideas? Know any celebrities?
Please share this info with me
ASAP, but privately.)
So would you be kind enough to act now (spending only
minute or two) to support the campaign to get The White-Out Diet
the hands of people who need it?
Act now, please. Just go here:
