KAREN salmansohn entrepreneur

I’m now a best selling author... with over 2 million books sold globally... and 1.5 million social media followers.

But I wasn’t always an author. 

I started my career in advertising ... where I was a CLIO award winning copywriter and Creative director for over a decade. 

My dream: Instead of inspiring people to try a new toothpaste... I wanted to write books to inspire people to think in new ways.

My parents kept talking me out of quitting my ad agency career... saying things like: “How can you quit – when you’re making so much money!”

But I thought if I could do so well at something I was not passionate about.. then I could figure out how to do well at something I enthusiastically wanted to do.

Eventually I gathered up the gumption to quit... and I pursued my passion for being an author.

I then learned specific principles of how to write a bestselling book.

But I didn't simply write one bestseller.

I've written bestsellers again... and again... and again!

Writing a bestselling book is not only creatively rewarding.

It's life rewarding. 

A book can lead to all kinds of wonderful things.

  • Creating passive income
  • Making an impact on the world
  • Finding your true purpose - and leaving a legacy
  • Developing a platform for your business (to sell other products and services)
  • Helping people to view you as a true expert in something
  • Developing your inner self – helping you to become clearer about who you are
  • Connecting you to a range of people –both professing and personally – each expressing how what you’ve written has influenced them in some way.

A book is a powerful “calling card"!

It can get you meetings, interviews, seminars - far more persuasively than a mere business card!

Which brings me to these next benefits of writing a book....

A book can take you to new exciting places!

TV appearances 

Seminar requests

TEDx talks

Admittedly, the book world is a competitive marketplace.

So you need to make sure you stand out.

It's why I coach writers to embrace "My 1 PRONG THEORY" on book writing.

one prong theory on book writing


Pretend you are holding a “bouquet” of sharpened pencils.

Each point is standing out at exactly the same level.

You then bounce the palm of your free hand up and down on top of those sharpened points.

It might hurt a little... but not so much.

one prong theory book writing

Now let’s say you have a “bouquet” of sharpened pencils. 


But one point is poking out much higher.

 

Again you bounce the palm of your free hand up & down on top. 


Ouch! 


This time it’s going to hurt.


Because that Singular Prong sticks up so much higher. 


When you write a book... you need a Singular Prong!

 

singular prong


CLARITY attracts a BOOK BUYER and thereby a BOOK DEAL! 


Basically, a book needs to be summed up quickly & powerfully in its description... if you want to hook an agent, publisher and audience!


A Singular Prong boosts the clarity of your book's description.

singular prong bestselling book



Plus, a book reads more fluidly when there’s a unifying Singular Prong Theme ... and thereby keeps the reader hooked. 


Unfortunately many writers try to squeeze too many idea prongs into their book.


Why?


Because they fall in love with every idea that they have! 


As a result,  their book becomes overstuffed with too many Idea Prongs.


Eventually nothing stands out.

 

Their book becomes too general... too tame.


If you want your book to be marketable... it needs to be remarkable. It needs a stand out Singular Prong!


This holds true for fiction, non-fiction and books of all kinds.

Client Bestseller Success Story: Gabby Bernstein

karen salmansohn add more ing


Gabrielle Bernstein came to me with a problem.


She wanted to be an inspirational book author – but after a few years of pitching a book proposal titled “Falling In Love With Your Future,” she still hadn’t gotten a publishing deal. 


Gabby was getting pretty frustrated, as you might imagine. She showed me her book proposal – asking me to help her to rewrite it.

 

When I read her proposal I immediately felt something was missing from her book’s premise: 


THE SINGULAR PRONG. 


Her book proposal didn’t have a high-concept message. It was too general - not specific enough to be summed up quickly in a way that would hook a publisher and captivate an audience. 


And I also felt her book's title (“Falling In Love With Your Future”) did not follow a SINGULAR PRONG approach


Her title - and the book's contents -  were both rather vague. 


Plus on top of that it was also a bit “ho-hum” /“old school” for the younger hip generation she was seeking to reach. 


So I worked with Gabby to help her find her SINGULAR PRONG. 


Together we jackhammered down to her wanting to help people to be less concerned with materialism - and more focusing on finding their “ truest self” - so they could experience "true happiness."


I then came up with an idea for the book title - and concept - one which could position her as a fun and hip author – a priority of hers. 


Back in 2008 I’d written my bestselling Bounce Back Book.

bounce back book


Within this book I had written about something I called “adding more ING to your life.

 

This was a quirky phrase I made up. The “ing” term referred to research I’d found which supports how money doesn’t bring you happiness – doing activities you love brings you happiness!


For example: Ski-ing. Surf-ing. Cook-ing. 


Research studies show the more “ings” you do that you love - the more you wind up entering into a “flow state ” .... which then increases your happiness! 

  

With this in mind... I suggested Gabby use my made-up quirky phrase from my Bounce Back Book - “Add More ING to your life”- as her book title.

  • It fit thematically with the ONE PRONG she wanted for her book.
  • Plus it was “hip” and “fresh” language – which matched her "style" request for a platform.

Next, I helped Gabby to write the book proposal based on this SINGULAR PRONG. 


When we were done, I introduced Gabby to the publishing house which ultimately bought her book. 


Why?


When I work with a client, I love doing everything I can to help them get published.


She pitched the editor the "Add More Ing To Your Life" proposal I helped her to write - and they accepted it.


This book then became a huge bestseller. 


Plus this book got her on Oprah!

Client Bestseller Success Story: 

Kristin Barton Cuthriell

snowball effect on amazon

"I'm a "bestselling author graduate" of Karen's Book Consulting Program. I came to Karen because over time it became clear to me that you can have the best content in the world - but without the right packaging it will go undiscovered.

Bringing my book idea to Karen was a life changing experience... that just continues to snowball in an amazing direction!

She helped me get my message out there... and as a result people all over the world are telling me that their lives are forever changed.

And yes... my book became an Amazon Bestseller!

I originally came to Karen with a book I was going to call "10 Practices to a Happy Healthy Life."

After hearing the premise of the book... and reading part of my early introduction... she suggested I change my title to "The Snowball Effect."

I loved this singular prong - and new title - "The Snowball Effect."

And I believe it's what boosted my book's rise on the bestselling books lists.

Karen not only helped me with my title... she designed my logo... my book’s cover... and the banners for my website and Facebook page.

Since the book was published, I've had the opportunity to speak about the "positive snowball effect" to audiences from coast to coast. 

I have taught seminars and workshops as well as written articles for The Huffington Post, Richmond Magazine, and Tidewater Women. I have been a guest on media outlets throughout the country including Doctor’s Radio and The Hampton Roads Show as well as the quoted expert on Fox News Magazine.

The inspiring stories that I share combined with evidence based tools and techniques are the things changing people’s lives, but without Karen’s help my message may have gone undiscovered.

Together she helped me to create the total package! Karen is without a doubt a huge part of my personal snowball effect!

Thank you, Karen!
