ABOO Sign-up

Welcome!

I already know you are a brilliant woman business owner, coach or consultant, ready to take the next step in moving you and your brand to the next level. How do I know? Because the ABOO Challenge isn’t for everyone; it’s not publicly advertised, and you’re here because you’ve been referred by someone who thinks you should write your book, or invited by me, Lucy McCarraher.

Just imagine… how much your life would change for the better if you could effortlessly sell your expertise and services to prospects without being pushy or salesy. If you could reach your ideal clients 24/7, across the world, without cold-calling or working endlessly to generate leads. If people you’d never met or contacted reached out to you for your expertise. If you could show you were the absolute expert and authority in your field in every sales pitch, interview and conversation. If you could get speaking gigs and media interest without even trying. If you could easily create and deliver keynotes, masterclasses and courses with confidence – and have your market asking you for more. Everything would change for the better; just ask one of my authors, Antoinette Dale Henderson:

 

Well, now you can do that

Literally nothing else will let you claim your authority and position you as an expert in your field like publishing a great book. There is no better business card or lead generator, and no quicker step to becoming a sought-after speaker and media expert than writing your book.

You can create content in other ways – blog posts, podcasts, social media posts, videos… but none of these give you that unquestionable authority, that kudos and influence in your market, like becoming the author of a great book.

Have you noticed how almost every speaker at events in your industry, every expert or pundit in the media is introduced as, ‘Author of … (book on relevant subject)?’ And that if you search online for a person who has written a book, Amazon positions them and their book to the top of the first search page?

This is how author Jane Frankland described it on my podcast:

 

 

 

So what’s been stopping you?

If you’ve been wanting to get your book written and published but haven’t yet done it, what’s been stopping you?

I’m guessing it will be one or more of these reasons:

  • You’re great at what you do, but when it comes to writing your book, you don’t know where to start or who to ask
  • Planning, writing and publishing a book just seems like too big a project for you to manage on your own
  • You’ve already got enough to do at work and at home, and you can’t see how you can find the time to write a book… although you know you should
  • You’re not sure how to position your book so it makes you stand out and really works for your business
  • Without a plan or some supportive people around you to be accountable to, you keep procrastinating and putting it off
  • With all your responsibilities to others, investing time and money in getting your book written and published feels kind of selfish

If one or more of those reasons has stopped you writing your book so far, the ABOO Challenge is for you.

Here’s why…

What does it cost?

The ABOO Challenge is the best value book-writing programme for women you will find anywhere. I am the UK’s most experienced business book mentor and I’m on a mission to support more women to write and publish their business books. Not only will your book give each and every one of you who come on the ABOO Challenge more credibility, authority and confidence, but it will contribute to the voice and visibility of women in general – which really matters to me and I hope to you.

For this reason, I’m keeping the price as low as I can for the eight months of expertise, coaching, time and support I’ll give you. So, for £499 (or three, monthly instalments of £175), you get my constant attention and support while you get your book planned, written and into the publishing process.

Added to which, I strongly encourage you to sign up for the three-day ABOO Writing Retreat in beautiful rural Norfolk at the end of October, where you’ll get a bespoke coaching schedule, and a truly inspiring experience for the discounted price of just £1,399 or three instalments of £499, instead of the standard price of £1599.

Why is it called the ABOO Challenge?

ABOO is the acronym of A Book of One’s Own

When I wrote my last book, A Book of One’s Own – a manifesto for women to share their experience and make a difference, I asked 50 women entrepreneur authors what challenges they’d faced in getting their books written and published. They told me that the 6Cs had held them, and other women, back:

  1. Confidence – women have less confidence than men in their own abilities.
  2. Criticism – women are fearful of judgement and criticism – with justification.
  3. Caring – women have to factor in caring responsibilities and feel selfish taking time out to write their book.
  4. Cash – women are more risk averse and worry about investing time and money in writing and publishing.
  5. Credibility – women lack credibility with external organisations like funders, publishers and prospects.
  6. The Club – women lack the role models, mentors and networks that men automatically have access to.

If any or all of these are stopping you plan, write and publish your book, I’m here to help. As a mentor and publisher who helps hundreds of entrepreneurs every year get their books written and into print, I’m offering you and a group of like-minded women a uniquely accessible programme that will take you through the whole process, with recorded coaching videos, live discussion, peer-to-peer connection and loads of supporting resources including the A Book of Your Own ABOO Planner, books, tips and exercises.

 

I’m really not a saint, but I do want to help get your books written!

Why just women?

Because for the last two years, the Business Book Awards, which I founded in 2017, have received entries from twice as many male authors as female authors. For both the 2018 and 2019 BBAs, we had approximately 100 entries from men and 50 from women. So, if I can help more women to get their books written, published and entered in the Business Book Awards, we will start to even up the gender gap!

So will you join the ABOO Challenge and let me mentor you through your book process, help you get it published and enter it in the next Business Book Awards?

As a work-life balance expert, I will show you how to manage your time and balance your responsibilities while you write your book like only a woman can. I will team you up with a small group of other women to support and keep you accountable while you write.

I will talk you step-by-step through planning and writing your book on Facebook Live Q&A’s, Zoom calls and recorded Coaching Sessions, and make sure you have all the resources you need to back you up.

I’ll explain exactly how to get your book published in the way that suits you best, and get you the best deals.

AND I’ll gift your book a free entry to the Business Book Awards 2021 to celebrate your success. That means your book will be featured on the BBA website, receive social media exposure and you’ll be invited to the Shortlist Reveal party in January 2021. And who knows, you might be shortlisted in your category or even win one of the Awards!

I can’t wait to work with you to get your book planned, written, published and entered in the Business Book Awards.

Sign up and reserve your place on the ABOO Challenge now, and make sure you’re a member of www.facebook.com/groups/ABOOCircles/ where I’ll be keeping you updated.

I look forward to working with you on your book.
