Further Details to followDesign EducationEducation Literature +1How I became an author, and how much I love being one!Cath Babbington CoachCathUK
My mother was a published author and had 3 books under her belt when I was growing up. She passed away many years ago and I'd always wanted to follow in her footsteps and write a book myself.
In 2020 I decided it was ‘my year’ to do so as I was turning 50, a marvelous milestone that gave me the knowledge, time and confidence to get started. I had met Ladey at a networking event and we clicked; just fate I guess.
Hear more on how I wrote my book during lockdown and the benefits its given me!BusinessBusiness Wellness +2Who You Gonna Call? GHOSTWRITER!Claudia Gere Creator, Aspiring Authors Program TM
When the mere thought of writing a book all by yourself is overwhelming, the idea of hiring a ghostwriter can be very appealing. Claudia Gere shares what she has learned as a successful ghostwriter (and the horror stories others have shared), including:
- Best reasons for hiring a ghostwriter
- Common misconceptions and pitfalls surrounding their role
- Questions every aspiring author should ask before hiring one
Find out whether hiring a ghostwriter is the right choice for you and your book project, and if it is, the best path forward for you.Business Marketing +1Book Marketing Book Publishing +1The Lincolnshire PoacherDavid Tonge Mr
David was born in Lincolnshire, within 2 miles of Kirkstead Abbey (as the crow flies). The Tonge family has been farming in the Fens since 1840.
David’s Great-Grandfather and Great-Uncle, along with other local farmers, were instrumental in pioneering the drainage of the area. They put a drainage channel through the area which is now the main road of Woodhall Spa.
David believes if he had been born over a hundred years ago he would been known as the local magnafogler,
an old Lincolnshire term for someone
who invents or innovates. He is keen on developing and investigating new innovations within farming, such as new techniques especially those related to regenerative farming.
He is a proud member of Groundswell, an organisation which provides a forum for farmers interested in food production or the environment to learn about the theory and practical applications of Conservation Agriculture and Regenerative Systems.
David has three children and an Irish Red Setter called Dixie. He is essentially self sufficient on his farm and has chickens, guinea-fowl, pigs and a large vegetable garden, large enough to plough with a Ferguson 135 tractor, so he doesn’t have to dig!
When not giving talks on The Poacher, David can be found reading in his library, out metal detecting or reclaiming materials from old buildings.
David enjoys this quote by Rick Butts, author and speaker, ‘For a person who has never led an army into battle, been elected to higher office, acted in movies or committed a heinous crime, a good book is the way to bridge the credibility gap.’
David would humbly suggest this quote could be applied to him as author of this book, ‘The Lincolnshire Poacher’.Beyond the book – how to market your book successfully before and after you’ve published it.Karen Williams The Book Mentor
When it comes to creating a successful business building book, you need to think beyond your book, and how it is going to enhance your credibility and build your authority and brand, before you start writing it.

This talk covers:
- Why you need to think about marketing before you start writing your book
- Three must dos that will get you focused on the right book first
- Some top marketing tips that will set you up for success.
This not-to-be missed talk sets you up to get the ultimate success from writing a book for your business.MarketingBook MarketingHow a book increases your business sales!Ladey Adey Ladey Adey
