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."
