We met our very first client at a craft fair at a local church. This distinguished 87 year old gentleman kept coming back to our booth. Over and over again. I don’t even remember his lovely wife visiting our booth. Apparently she did, but not with the frequency her husband did.
His dream centered on the publishing of his written work. He had tried to self-publish on his own and to his dismay, he did not find success. It would seem that 40 Day Publishing would be his last hope at seeing the fulfillment of those dreams.
Peter has taught us that you never give up and it’s never too late to pursue those God given dreams planted deep within you. A few weeks ago, his fourth book, Free to Learn, Free to Teach, was released. His best work to date. It has been our honor to help this couple taste the first fruits of their labor.
Here is what Dr. Peter Pierro has to say about 40 Day Publishing:
“We are Senior Citizens who have retired from the world of education and would like to publish books that would be beneficial for parents and teachers.
In the past, we have had some rather unsuccessful experiences publishing our books - we have the boxes in our garage to prove it. Publishing our own books was very expensive. The printing costs were very high and in order to get a decent price per book, we had to buy a lot of copies. Then along came the marketing headaches.
We met Darlene Shortridge and Daniel Mawhinney at their 40 Day Publishing booth at a local church exhibition. They were giving a showing of Darlene’s books and we began to share our experiences in publishing. Very briefly and professionally, they shared their program that creates digitalized versions as well as paperback and hardbacks. We saw our publishing opportunities in a new and manageable light.
We had already completed one manuscript and had two others in the planning stages. We decided to associate with 40 Day Publishing in completing the production. So far, in working with Daniel and Darlene, we have successfully completed the publishing of four books. They have also established a web site for us at peterpierro.com and have made arrangements for us with Amazon. We found them to be totally professional and competent and as a result, we are now fulfilling our dreams of having our books printed and out in the public marketing world.
Above all we appreciate the personal interaction and relationship we have with Darlene and Daniel."

80% of Americans feel they have a book somewhere buried deep within them.
Are you one of those 80%?
Every day, whether through Facebook, an email, our website, or in person at an event or book signing, my husband and I are asked about the publishing and/or writing process. The questions range from, “how do I start writing?” to “my book isn’t selling, what can I do?” and everything in-between. I have had hour long conversations at events, just helping people come to the conclusion that they too can check writing that book off their bucket list. In fact, anyone can do this. The question becomes, do you want to do this?
Because the cry for help is growing louder by the day, we have put together a very concise, step by step instruction book called 40 Day Publishing, an Author’s Workbook and Step by Step Guide to Self-Publishing in Eight Weeks or Less. This book tells you, the writer, exactly what has to be done to be published. If you want our help, we ask you start with this book. When you have finished we are more than happy to answer your publishing questions.
We will be posting informative posts on our website blog to help you write better, market better, and publish better. Our goal is to help the Indie writer be successful in their writing endeavors.
Best wishes and happy writing!
Dan & Darlene
