Can you help me write a book?

The Tapping ToolkitA few years ago I published a book called The Tapping Toolkit, a collection of tools and techniques that I had developed over the years I’ve used EFT with clients and on myself.

Now I’d like to update the book with a new version that builds on and adds some new techniques and tactics I’ve developed since the first version, written in 2014.

So how can you help me write a book?

In the ‘old’ days if you wanted a book you had to wait for the author to write it and for it to be published. If you’ve ever written a book you will know that this can take a long time. As a reader you had to wait for the author to finish and then you got the whole book all at once.

This, traditional, approach to writing a book has two main drawbacks:

  1. The book may or may not be useful for the person it is written for. The reader gets no say in what is covered and how it is explained. They have to take the authors version as it is.
  2. The book depends on the writers ability to know what the reader wants or needs. What’s written and how it is written is based on the writer’s guesses about what matters to the reader.

Now there is a way of writing a book that incorporates the feedback and needs of the reader.

New technology allows writers to quickly build and distribute a several editions of the book over time and respond the feedback and interests of the people who want to read it.

With each new edition the book becomes a better book because it addresses the needs of the people it is written for.

This is the approach I’m adopting for the new version of The Tapping Toolkit.

How does this work?

The latest version of The Tapping Toolkit is available from here.

There are two versions available:

  • A free sample so you can find out if you like what I have to say and how I’m saying it.
  • The current version of the book as it evolves which you need to pay for.

The current version of the book will evolve over time as I respond to feedback and add new chapters.

You can download the free sample at any time. If you like what you see you can buy an ebook edition of the current version.

You choose your price between a minimum and maximum value. Once you buy the book you get all the following updates free of charge when they are published.

In the early days the minimum fee will be quite low, as the book gets larger and closer to completion the minimum price will rise reflecting the value of the larger book.

When the book finally reaches version 1.0 and is complete. I will create a paperback version for those of you who like real books. If you have bought an ebook version of The Tapping Toolkit I will offer a substantial discount on the paperback version.

What’s in it for you?

This approach to writing a book is called ‘Lean Publishing’ and it has the following benefits to you the reader:

  • You get a usable book far sooner than if you had to wait for the author to finish the final copy.
  • You can send feedback, comments and ask for clarification to the author which may be incorporated into the next edition. Your new (free) updated book will be improved by the collective feedback of other readers.
  • As each new chapter is added and feedback included you will get a bigger and better book.
  • Each new mini-edition will be delivered in a matter of weeks.
  • Once you have bought the book you will get each update free of charge.
  • You decide what to pay for the book within the minimum and maximum suggested price.
  • When the paperback version of the book is published you will get a substantial discount if you decide to upgrade from pixels to paper.

What’s in it for me?

This approach is not only good for you it has benefits for me too:

  • It’s a lot easier to explain things if you get good feedback.
  • It’s motivating to know that people are interested and invested in what you want to say.
  • I get better royalties than I’d get from a regular publisher/bookseller like Amazon.

For most of you this is probably a very unusual way to get a book. As far as I know I am the only EFT author using this approach.

If you are interested in the book you can download a free sample from The Tapping Toolkit webpage.

If you like what you read you can buy the current version of the book from the same webpage.

I hope you find the book interesting (and decide to buy it) and I look forward to receiving your comments and feedback so I can make it a better and even more useful book.
