Rural Book Projects 20222022-04-23T14:47:48+10:00

Do you have a great story to share?

Or, some great business advice?

One of the BEST ways to do this, is via a book.

Books are incredibly powerful for both as a positioning tool for you and your business AND for those they impact.

Yet, writing and publishing said powerful book, can be ridiculously difficult and daunting.

That’s why, collaborative books are awesome.

By joining forces with other business owners, getting published is so much easier.

Simply contribute a single chapter – with support – and we’ll handle the rest.

In 2022 – we have TWO great new books you can contribute to.

These two book concepts have been specifically designed to help and support rural, regional and remote business owners.

Rural Business Women Volume 2

Secret Success Strategies to Scale

This one is a sequel to our original collaborative book published in 2021 – Rural Business Women.

Contribute your number one strategy that you use in your business, to create success.

This doesn’t have to be anything ground breaking necessarily – it could simply be:

  • a powerful mindset strategy
  • a successful marketing tactic
  • your approach to outsourcing
  • or anything that’s helped you scale.

If you’re a rural, regional or remote woman in business, we want you!

The Rural Rebel Business Revolution

This book is for the rule breakers!

It’s for anyone in business, rural or regional, who has done something differently in their business, to achieve success.

You may have:

  • Taken a different path towards growth and success.
  • Offered a service or product in a different way.
  • Disrupted your industry.
  • Created your own daring marketing strategy.
  • Found support and mentoring in unlikely places.
  • Used some unique messaging.
  • Developed an awesome advertising campaign.
  • Adopted an unusual mindset technique.

Any type of business, in any industry, at any level is completely welcome.

If you’re a ‘rural rebel’ we need your story!

What we do

Project Coordination:

All the pesky admin that goes into producing a book like this and keeping everyone on track.

Topic Selection & Book Structure Planning:

We’ll ask all authors to let us know a few topics they would like to write about.

Then, we’ll pick the topics that work best, as a whole to formulate a plan for the book.

Writing Coaching & Support:

As an experienced, multi-award-winning copywriter and best selling author, I’ll give you an easy structure and templates, that will make writing your chapter a breeze. Even, if you’ve never written anything like this before.

Editing:

As we engage a professional publisher, we get access to their professional team. This starts, with an incredible editor who will polish your work.

Never fear though, they won’t tear your work to shreds and no matter what, the end result will be amazing!

Book Internal Page Layout & Design:

Once edited, the finished chapters will be compiled and put together, and all laid out correctly for both print and ebook form.

Cover Design:

The cover designs provided on this page, are just suggestions and very rough mock-ups. The final covers will be professionally designed.

Global Distribution:

Our publishing team will set the finished book up in a global distribution system that allows book shops worldwide to gain access to it – in both print and ebook form. This includes upload to Amazon as well.

Marketing Assistance:

We’ll give you a whole stack of ideas, graphics and templates to help you market the finished book to your audience.

We’ll also be promoting you and the book through our channels.

Remember though – you do need to put in some effort here, to get the most exposure and best results.

PR & Media Coverage:

We’ll be doing our best to secure as much media surrounding the books as possible.

We will also supply you with media release templates, so you can seek out and secure your own local media.

What you need to do

Think of 3 – 5 potential topics you could write about:

Think about where your area of expertise lies, and come up with a few topics that fit the brief of the book.

Put together a brief overview of your chapter:

We’ll provide you with a template, that you can simply fill out and submit.

Write your first draft (by the set deadline):

This is the fun bit – its time to get writing. If you get stuck, you can reach out to the group or to myself, for help.

Your chapter can be anywhere between 3000 and 5000 words.

We will give you a set due date, which will be reasonable – but expect it to be within 2 months. We expect you to get your draft to us, by or before that due date.

If you find you can’t – you simply need to reach out to us as early as possible, so we can help.

Review your edits:

When you receive your edits, simply accept, reject or amend and send them back.

Contribute to the book community – and support each other:

Book writing can be both easy and incredibly difficult, all at the same time. Being involved in this type of project allows you to get support, while you also support others. Incredible friendships and connections can bloom!

Wait for us to complete the production and publishing process:

Sit tight, while we handle the entire publishing process – alongside our publisher.

Celebrate and help spread the word:

Once our book is finished and published – we can all help to market the book.

Sarah Walkerden - SEO Copywriting Specialist

Hello – I’m Sarah Walkerden, The Rural Copywriter.

  • I have 18 years experience as an SEO Website Copywriter and Digital Marketing Specialist.
  • I have won MULTIPLE awards for my work :)
  • I am a Certified Practising Marketer (CPM) – which means I’ve been assessed and endorsed by the Australian Marketing Institute. (#trusted)

THE Coaching…

Writing books can seem daunting, if you don’t feel confident in your writing abilities.

Luckily, writing doesn’t rely on natural talent – it’s a skill that can be learnt when you have a clear and simple process to follow.

As a multi-award-winning copywriter, with 18 years experience, I’ll be coaching you through the writing process to make putting your chapter together smooth sailing.

The process I’ll coach you through will allow you to get all those jumbled thoughts from inside your brain, spit them on to the page and turn them into an amazing chapter, that you’ll be proud of.

This coaching will essentially be in the form of an online ‘mini course’ – with writing processes and secrets you can use for any of your future writing projects.

I’ll then be reviewing and editing your chapter – to provide feedback and suggested changes.

We’ll also have a professional editor and proof reader who will help transform your words into a thing of beauty – to showcase your knowledge in it’s best and brightest light.

You’ll be a writing champion and a business superstar (so not exaggerating!).

How do I get involved in these books?

Publishing a book does come with A LOT of expenses. The beauty of a collaborative book is that we can split and share the publishing expenses between us.

Putting together and publishing books of this calibre involves many hours of work and a lot of professional expertise, when you consider the editing, design, layout, distribution, printing etc.

Make sure you choose the correct book you’d like to be apart of, below.

What is the VIP option all about?2022-03-02T15:59:21+11:00

I’m offering a VIP option to those who would love to contribute to either book, but don’t have the time to write their own chapter.

Therefore, I will ghost write your chapter for you.

You will still need to provide me with the structure and information you’d like included – in simple dot point form.

And you will still be expected to contribute to the group and marketing efforts.

But YES – I can still write your chapter in a way that sounds like it’s you (no one will know the difference!).

When is payment due?2022-03-02T15:57:11+11:00

Payment is due as soon as possible to confirm your spot in the book/s.

Either in one full payment – or by paying the first instalment of your 3x monthly payments.

If you need more time, please get in touch to discuss.

What do I need to qualify to contribute?2022-03-02T15:54:19+11:00

You simply need to own or hold a senior position in a business, that’s located in a rural, regional or remote area.

That’s basically anywhere, outside the major capital cities in Australia.

For ‘Rural Business Women’ – you clearly do need to be a woman in business.

For ‘The Rural Rebel Business Revolution’ – there are no other requirements.

You also need to fit the brief for each book. If you’re not sure, just ask.
