- Kristin Kennedy Preachers

Dear Creative Author,

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 in just TWO DAYS 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!

One of the most valuable aspects of Kristen's excellent courses is the power of the private Facebook group. Everyone is responsive and supportive. It goes a long way toward helping you achieve your best and fastest work. I highly recommend you join us in this course!

Laura De La Cruz

Thank you Kristen for sharing your passion, wisdom and most of all your skills and resources! I am motivated to FINALLY write my first book in the form of a journal. Thank you for giving me the inspiration and now motivation to do something on my own!

Sandy Rogers

Whew! I’m exhausted and jazzed!! What a terrific course! Kristen, you are awesome, and I’m stoked about getting my project designed and out there. Thank you for the info and kick-in-the-seat to get my project off the ground. 

Katy Pye

Kristen Joy, Thank you, Thank you - for training sessions jam-packed with usable information. I came into this class wanting to learn how to create journals and came out with a plan to set up my own publishing company, preview knowledge of publishing software, and new group of writing peers. You delivered above and beyond my expectations. Your homework assignments meshed with the flow of ceative ideas and we also came out with plans for projects. Your class delivered quality material plus a mind-set change. Thanks again. Wishing you Abundant Blessings in your future.

Lana Jackson

Love it Kristen! I have taken tons of similar courses over the years (not for journals of course) and you surpassed them all in content, delivery and took motivation to a whole new level. I cannot thank you enough for that. Because of you, I will have my journal off to the printers as soon as the few people finished reviewing for me. Thanks again for EVERYTHING! You my friend are an angel.

Kristen has been a great help since I found out about her. To call her a "Fountain of Knowledge" doesn't do her justice. She is the reason I went from publishing one book on Kindle to 7 in a years time.

Ronald Nutter

Kristen's positive energy, keep-it-real approach and ability to cut through the extraneous and hone in on the key elements is a true gift! I'm tickled to be orbiting her planet!
