Facilitated Book Formatting Training Course

At Write Learn and Earn, we believe a book is not just a book. It is a way of reaching your ideal audiences, selling other products, building relationships and transforming lives.

A well-formatted book provides a better reading experience. Just like being in a well kept and orderly home makes us feel more relaxed, readers prefer reading books that have a harmonious and logical look to them. But there is so much more to book formatting than just the look and feel of a book. E-Books in particular have some hidden powerful marketing built-in tools. Our Facilitated Book Formatting Training turns your book into a lead generating machine that can help you grow your business.

While his CV boasts working with local and multinational brands such as PG Glass, Mercedes Benz, Kia, VW and Kimberly-Clark, his methodical and outcomes focused approach has assisted him in working with all levels of all learners.

Colin was first introduced to the world of publishing when his wife announced that she was planning to shut down her business of over 20 years to pursue a career in writing. This life-changing event made Colin re-evaluate his career path, which until then had been focused on building other companies’ teams. He was inspired by writers and their spouses who retired themselves from their day jobs into a writing and marketing team. 

He embraced learning how to professionally format books in a way that helped writers lead readers through their series and market other products to grow their brand. His thorough knowledge of the process makes him an empathetic trainer who understands the challenges of learning a new programme.

Hello, I am Kim Vermaak

I spent most of my adult life helping other companies build their dream and their brands.

After I turned 40, I wondered if there was more to life than taking care of children and slaving away to earn a living.

I wanted to create a legacy for my children and the next generation. I found that through my books I could celebrate who I am as well as teach others to earn a living through their writing.

Being an author is not a hobby. It is a business, and it is my passion to teach authors how to thrive in that business. I look forward to seeing your book business grow.
