How to Avoid the Mistakes Most First Time Authors Make! Get Insider Secrets from Self-Publishing Expert's to Getting Started and Completing Your Book In Less Time Than Ever!

WARNING: Don’t Even Think of Writing a Book Until You Attend this Workshop.


Hi, I'm Lucinda Cross and I've been doing business online since 2004 and have been an expert, author and speaker since 2009. In that short time, I have secured national media 30 Days after my book launch, tons of radio interviews, lots of speaking gigs and countless coaching clients. I cam active at the following sites which all is a result of my book success.,,, I'm the author of one book and four eBook as well as several articles and other inspirational and motivational posts. I write for several top notch blogs and magazines, so I am here to support you 110%.




  1. Lack of Focus. Many aspiring authors lack a clear plan for growth; no team support, and struggling with taking action, not aligned to the strategy, not held accountable, or simply too “busy”. What if I told you I know a simple, yet actionable and strategic solution to help you get your book done in 6 weeks “for real”?

  2. Being an Information Junkie. What happens most times when an author is ready to write a book, they begin to do so much research and attend so many workshops or seminars about writing that they begin to get addicted to the information they gather, and never use it and they end up losing their idea, concept or authenticity.

  3. Giving Up before you get started. There is a battle going on mentally that stops us before we even start. 87% of self talk is negative, so we allow our own inner voice to sabotage us, by telling us that we cannot afford it; don’t have time, not knowledgeable enough, just unsure of the future.

Take some time and think about all the reasons why you want to be an author and the reasons why you have not started. Make two columns and I bet you will have more on the reasons why you haven’t started. The key is to be Bold and step out.


Here is a quick story: Until I smothered the inner voice who was telling me, I am not worthy, no one cares, I am not capable of writing a book, is when the light began to shine and I completed the book before I could even complain. I was excited to spend my nights recording and writing my book. I did not have it in my budget to get started, I spent lots of money getting information from “experts”, I had 2 kids under 10 years old, a house to clean, a business to run, a man to cook for, laundry to do, a mom to spend time with, a coach on my back to get it done, and guess what I thought I did not have time either. But I made time, I made time for my future, I made time in order to make space for growth, success, new opportunities and you can to.


Is this for me?


That is a great question and now that I have your attention, let me explain that this is not for everyone.  Answer these 3 Questions…and the answer to these will determine if you need to continue reading the rest of this letter.

  1. Are you able to stay focused enough on this one project for 6 consecutive weeks without excuses? Without using excuses such as “I don’t have time”, “I am not a writer”, “I don’t know where to start”, “this is too intense”, “forget it I will do it on my own time”.

  2. Are you ready to be disciplined to put in the hard work, carve out “Me Time” and block out the distractions? The most important piece of this workshop is YOU. You must believe in YOUR DREAM long enough and strong enough to say “No” to everyone around you who is trying to distract you, from getting to the finish line.

  3. Are you able to come to class ready to take notes, take action, have fun and laugh during the journey? You must be able to have a sense of humor so that during the rough times you can pull through, not beat up on yourself, be attentive and ask questions and most of all enjoy the process.

If you have any concerns holding you back, read this:

1. “I can’t write.” I’ll show you seven rules that will transform your writing when you apply them. You will also be given resources to speak your book if your not a writer.

2. “I don’t have the time.” I have a writing balance schedule that you will follow to help with balancing your life and your book project.

3. “I feel uneasy about investing my money right now.” A book can be one of the best investments you’ve ever made. I see it time and again with my authors who can make thousands of dollars in sales from the sale of one single book.

4. “I don’t know where to begin.” We’ll cover all of that in the sessions.

5. “I’m not sure I can commit to every meeting every session.” Here’s the one reason not to do the course. This is serious and it is similar to taking a winter course in college. It’s fine if you have or had commitment issues in the past and I am happy to hold you accountable. But if you’re not willing to step into your power, don’t take the course. It would be a waste of your money and both of our time.

6. “What if I don’t complete my book in time?” This is not a race and you will have access to recording for FREE. I’m committed to helping you complete your book, not just start it.


If you’re committed to your success, so am I.


I Don’t Want To Rush...

I see it happen all the time, where you don’t want to rush into things. I put it like this, what did you do 6 weeks ago, and 6 weeks before that, and before that? If you don't write it NOW, chances are very good that you won't write it all. In this Age of Microwave Information, someone like you gets hundreds of ideas a day and it’s getting harder and harder to pen things down, focus and go the long haul.

It all balls down to whether you’re just "Talkers" while others are" Doers". Doers are the authors, Doers are the Business Owners, Doers are the Entrepreneurs, Doers are people who value their time and invest in themselves.

Get ready for new opportunities! You will gain new respect from clients, prospects and people you meet. It puts your brand at the top and opens the door for being in conjunction and not in competition with other experts and authorities. Get ready to step into your greatness!


It doesn't take much success to 
get a return on your investment


How can I get a return on my Investment?

Guest Speakers Include: 


 Dan Poynter- The Self-publishing Godfather

Dan Poynter fell into publishing. He spent eight years researching a labor of love. Realizing no publisher would be interested in a technical treatise on the parachute, he went directly to a printer and "self- published." The orders poured in and he suddenly found he was a publisher himself.


Dan has produced more than 76 books and revisions so far, of which some have been translated into Spanish, Japanese, Russian, British-English and German. Over the years, Dan has developed a system of writing that makes it all so easy and fun. His books are loaded with facts and figures and contain detailed inside information. They are always up-to-date because he revises them before going back to press. Dan has sold millions of his books, including several best sellers, for tens of millions of dollars in sales. Many of his books sell at the rate of 10-20,000 copies per year, every year.  

 Peggy McColl's book "Your Destiny Switch" not only hit #13 on the New York Times Best Seller List for hardcover advice, but also #3 on Barnes & Noble and #2 on Amazon, just behind Harry Potter. In less than a week, Peggy sold more books than 95% of authors sell in their lifetimes and surprisingly, it cost her practically nothing to do it! Want to discover how she did it ... and how you can use her strategies to make your own book a bestseller? Peggy will be discussing her proven formula for creating bestsellers. Regardless of where you are in the publishing process...whether your book is still in the idea stage ...just published ... or even if it's been out for years.

After selling his first company, Mike launched a new business the very next day, and in less than three years, sold it to a Fortune 500. With his newest multi-million dollar venture, Obsidian Launch, he grows authors and experts into industry superstars.

Are you excited yet? Did any Book Ideas Pop in Your Head? Do you see yourself signing books with your name on them?


The process is very simple and you could get started writing your book on your own. But here you are provided with an accountability partner, lessons in bit size pieces that provide big time results. As your Mentor I will take you by the hand and show you the way, the way to do it and get it done without stressing yourself out. Keep in mind, with this workshop in the next 6 weeks you will be well on your way to a complete manuscript that you have the freedom to self publish or present it to publishers.

Every lesson and bonus report is strategically created in such a way, that each bite size action step you take you'll see big time results...


Short And Sweet

Each session will include a lecture from the presenter and then a 3-5 page action lesson. This will help with organizing the information, digesting it and making sure you are clear on WHAT TO DO. You will read, take notes, print out the lesson if you like and place it in your “Book in a Bag” binder.


Face book Group Forum.

Every day there will be a new tip, technique, bit of advice for you. This will help with encouragement, confidence and to help push you forward. We want to make sure you are balanced and focused. This way you can stay motivated and ready to show up prepared to the next session.


60 minute Conversation like Lectures.

Every session we will have a guest expert to join us. You will have the opportunity to send your questions and answers in early to ensure that they get answered during the call. The calls will be lecture style but conversational, we don’t want to bore you or cause you to go into an information burn out. The experts that are chosen all are equipped with fire. They are willing to give you 6 minutes of their time. Each session will be action based and is formatted to provide the HOW and the WOW. (keep in mind these experts get paid big bucks to coach for 60 min)


Overflow Session. 

After each session we will have an Overflow call with Lucinda, in which the lines will be open and questions can be asked. This will give you the opportunity to discuss your concerns and get clear on the lesson given and to prepare for the lesson ahead. My goal is for you to receive value and see real progress in completing your book, eBook or journal.



You will be assigned an accountability partner, all information will be confidential within the group and everyone is required to sign the confidentiality report before the workshop begins. As accountability partners you will connect 2x a week and check on each other to make sure that you are getting your assignments done and moving towards completion.


You can only learn what your teacher knows and at the level of knowledge they possess, that’s why I have reached out to six of the BEST and Dan Poytner alone, has experience stemming back to the 60’s. My mission is not to get rich off of your learning experience but to make sure you don’t have to go through what took me and many of the experts’ years to accomplish. Each one Teach one. If I have shifted hundreds of moms with my book Corporate Mom Dropouts than I can only imagine what you can do.

It is for that reason that only that I am only charging $497, $297, just $197. This is the affordable price because I know you may have some second thoughts. I understand I have invested in people who called themselves experts, who promised to give me the blueprint, who said they would show me the way, some of the investment was worth it and some of it seemed like a scandal. I'm going to make it EASY. I'm going to make it affordable for every budget.

The workshop is 6-weeks in length; you can cancel anytime you choose. If you're not seeing progress, then it doesn't cost you anything further.

(Warning: This workshop will not be LIVE after October; it will be made into an info product.)

No risk guarantee

30 DAY GUARANTEE: Refund is available anytime for the next 2 weeks. Send me an email if you are not satisfied for any reason. Fair is fair so let’s value each other.
