Summary

Did you know that the writing and publishing industry is perpetuating old, antiquated traditions simply because no one has questioned them in over a century? Until now, that is. Based on her original research, author Lori Anne Rising dares to challenge the age-old “wisdom” of the writing and publishing industry.  In short, this book shows professional speakers, consultants, coaches and trainers how to leverage their knowledge effectively to reach more people, make more money, and make a powerful difference in the world. 
Did you know, for example, that sales do not create influence? And yet, the writing and publishing industry wants you to believe that sales are the only thing that matters. Wrong! There’s so much more to consider if you truly want your hard-earned knowledge and experience to serve you and your readers. 
The Influential Authorship series is based on years of professionally reviewed, academic research – and yet it’s written conversationally with the busy, traveling professional in mind. By asking a different question than anyone has ever asked before, Lori Anne has discovered a break-through approach to nonfiction writing and publishing that has already created bestselling and award-winning results for her clients. 
In this book, Book 1 in the Influential Authorship series, you’ll learn: 
What influence really is, why it matters, and how you can leverage it as an author… 
What the fundamental building blocks are to develop more powerful content far more easily… 
How the power of your intentions guide your book, and how to clarify them in order to create content that meets  – and even exceeds – both your personal and business goals… 
Practical tips and strategies to apply immediately to get your next (or first!) book started right to ensure the best possible results possible for you – and your business… 
The biggest mistakes a newbie author can make – and what to do instead…. 
What really connects with readers and causes them to take action in their lives to ensure you’re book is making a real difference…. 
And much more! 
It has been said that a book is the expert’s and thought leader’s most compelling business card. Now, you can take your writing – and your business – to a whole new level through the art of influence.  If you’re a professional speaker, consultant, coach, trainer or other expert in your industry – or want to position yourself as one – this is the break-through nonfiction writing guide you’ll want to read.

This indispensable nineteenth century guidebook will entertain, educate and inspire in equal measure. What should you do if you notice a stranger’s dress is tucked up at the back?

For help is at hand in the form of The Ladies’ Book of Etiquette.   Florence Hartley’s insightful etiquette guide was first published in 1860, and yet her witty and useful advice on behaving like a lady often still rings true down the ages.

Let every action, while it is finished in strict accordance with etiquette, be, at the same time, easy, as if dictated solely by the heart. To be truly polite, remember you must be polite at all times, and under all circumstances.

    ABOUT THE BOOK 
    Everything about him was old except his eyes and they were the same color as the sea and were cheerful and undefeated. 
    The Old Man and the Sea is one of the most recognized titles in the American canon, the simple story of a man named Santiago, who has acquired iconic status for his encounter with the ultimate catch in the Atlantic ocean. The novel addresses themes common to many of Hemingways novels: identity, manhood, death, and religion. His straightforward confrontation of these issues, central to the American experience, gives a contemporary relevance to the novel. Hemingway wrote The Old Man and the Sea in 1952 while in Cuba, the last book he published during his lifetime. The book is largely responsible for Hemingways celebrity, and was extremely successful before he died. 
    The novel likely began as a story written for Esquire magazine in 1936 about a fisherman at sea, attacked by sharks while chasing a giant catch. The success of this story led him to expand it into a short novel. Hemingway published Across the River and Into the Trees in 1952, though it was met with great disappointment. Many doubted that the author had another great novel in him. Hemingway was concerned, as it was important to him that The Old Man and the Sea become a literary success.

    EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK 
    He realizes that this fish is very, very large. He prays that he will be able to manage it, and that his hand will uncramp. As he drifts further out, and with nothing to occupy his time, he begins to wishes that he could fall asleep and dream about the lions because they are the only thing left. He misses getting to read the baseball scores, and he compares himself in his mind to the great DiMaggio, who plays with a bone spur in his heel, just as he is fishing with a cramped arm. 
    The old man catches glimpses of the fish and knows that he is huge. He feels as though he is starting to lose his senses, and fervently hopes that the fish dies and not him. He reminds himself again and again to keep a clear head. As the fish pulls close to the boat, the old man grabs his harpoon and spears him as hard as he can. He drives the harpoon deeply into the fishs chest, he sense that the fish, has his death in him. The fish dies, floating to the surface of the ocean. The old man thinks the fish must be at least fifteen hundred pounds. Its eyes are as detached as a saints. 
    The old man is running out of food and water, so he runs the line through the giant fishs gills and begins to tow him home. But as they are on their way when the old man becomes aware of a shark alongside the boat. The shark lunges for the fish, taking a chunk out of it for lunch; When the fish is mutilated, the old man feels as though he has been mutilated. The old man guesses he has lost about forty pounds of fish from the blow, and that other sharks will be coming...

They program in what they have to do and you can't override it. You might try to take the club back in one piece but it you're not aiming correctlyÔÇöthey quickly take over. And if you think you can kid them you'd have done it by now.If you are aiming at a target 250 yards away and your clubface is only 3 degrees to the right, it will be pointing 13 yards right of target.
