Content Rich Journals Are MUCH More Than Lines on a Page
They Can Boost Your Income, Help Your Readers, and Increase Your Income!

Imagine this… You walk into a bookstore or specialty gift shop. Along the wall is an impressive display of journals of all types and sizes. Journals for list making. Diet & exercise journals. Blank-page journals with cool or quirky quotes. Journals for fun. Journals for in-depth writing. Journals for hobbies. Dozens of beautiful, quirky, attractive and awesome journals!

And yet, it’s still missing…

There’s that ONE journal, that special one you’ve been searching for, that you just can’t find. The one that speaks to you, that has everything inside it that you want. And you know others want it, too.

Amidst dozens and dozens of choices, you leave empty-handed and disappointed. Don’t let your audience leave empty-handed and disappointed, too!

Journals… they’re like potato chips… or cats… You can never have just one! I know I own and use at least a dozen myself. From journals for weight loss to inspiration to blank books with lines and fun illustrations, the opportunities for tapping into this niche are endless!

Journals are a high-selling hot book style and the trend continues to grow, right now! Everything from journals for writing about your day to keeping track of life events, to managing your kids, your business and your life! But still… yours isn’t out there yet. Is it?

As a well-seasoned author, artist and publishing professional, I’ve been getting ready to create journals for a long time. I’ve also received a LOT of feedback from people just like YOU who are ready to create their own journals. And in my own personal research, I’ve discovered a NEW trend of mash-up journals becoming more popular as niches combine to create one-of-a-kind highly-desirable low-content, highly-attractive and engaging books!

  • What if you could look over my shoulder as I create a beautiful, simple, and marketable (yes, it’ll look GORGEOUS next to all those other journals you’d LOVE to stand out next to on that shelf!) journal?
  • What if I walked you through step-by-step beginning with idea all the way through EACH stage of creation?
  • How much would you invest in a live, step-by-step design, layout, publishing and marketing course for this exploding book publishing niche? (You’ll be surprised at the answer!)

See, what I want to do is teach YOU exactly how to design and publish these amazing books yourself… without the high cost of hiring book designers. I don’t want to just throw a bunch of facts together or share some good theories! What I want to do is put into your hands the know-how to turn around and design your own journal… immediately!

In fact, I will personally create AND publish one of these books from scratch right in front of your eyes! You get the benefit of all the training, experience, research and know-how that comes with my well over 10 years in the publishing industry and experience designing and publishing books for well over a dozen clients. Skip to the head of the class and be prepared to create your own beautiful journal by the end of this training experience!
