A busy few weeks this has been. Thankfully, I am now FINISHED with the 2nd publishers edit on my book! In three weeks, I will receive my book back from the paginator (the person who lays the book out exactly as it will be printed). The only thing I have left to do is read through the paginated version one time and give the final OK.
This is a very exciting afternoon! Seriously, this process has taken longer than I ever imagined, but its been highly educational and even FUN at times. The book is nearly perfect! It’s certain to do everything I wished it would do when I first started to write it 5 years ago! This dream is becoming a reality.
To commemorate this moment, here is one of our back cover options:
Headline: Searching For A New World
Tag line: Make Me a Legend predicts the rise of an emergent legend tribe. More than a prediction, it’s a save the world manual for today—and the great invitation of lifetime!
Sometimes I feel like Christopher Columbus, searching for another new world—but in a country that once was! When I discover this new world in all its glory, I’m giving it to my children and yours as my loving inheritance to them. Are you with me? Just like Columbus pursued his ambitious dream, we must pursue ours, too! We have to raise our sails now and fly straight into the fiercest, uncharted seas, without flinching for even a second! And when that time comes, and we’re face to face with the monsters, we must banish them to the ocean floor!
Fellow legends, if we sleep now, we can be sure that this world we’ve been given will be handed to the next generation no better—and probably a whole lot worse than it was when we first received it. Humankind will have taken until there is nothing left for all who come after us, stripping the earth of so much more than ever needed, carelessly trampling down its beauty. We will die bloated with personal achievement and yet starving to death from a deprivation of legacy—the paradox of never really living for the bigger cause.
Ladies and men, grown-ups and youth people worldwide: This is the bigger cause—my dream of a better tomorrow. It’s very nice to meet you, welcome to the tribe and the adventure!
That’s all I have for you this afternoon, have a happy weekend! With much love…
Dream Big, Live Bold, and Leave a Legacy,
