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."

Seven years ago when I finished writing my first novel, my husband and I had no idea where to turn for publishing. We were at a loss. Fast forward to today. We now have our own publishing company (with eight of our own titles and counting).
People have asked us repeatedly, what happened that made the difference? What in the world did you do during those seven years to get where you are today? Can you teach us to do the same thing? In answer to those questions we wrote a small, but impactful book, called 40 Day Publishing, an Author’s Workbook and Step by Step Guide to Self-Publishing in Eight Weeks or Less.
Little did we know at the time we were starting a revolution that would turn the publishing world on its ear. No longer would authors feel the need to grovel at the doorstep of publishing houses hoping for a meager advance or a pittance for a royalty. No longer would authors have to shell out thousands of hard earned dollars to be “partners” with so called “reputable” subsidy publishers.
Finally, authors are being empowered with the knowledge and tools to publish themselves under their own publishing companies. We want you, the author, to tell your story, share your message, and change the world, one book at a time.
You CAN publish yourself for free. We are giving away a limited number of paperback copies of 40 Day Publishing. This book will teach you how to go from finished manuscript to published author in 40 days or less AND be in business for yourself with your very own publishing company!
This book normally retails for $14.97 plus shipping, handling and tax when purchased through Amazon. All we ask is you cover shipping and handling costs of only $6.95. This offer is only available through our website link for 40 Day Publishing, An Author’s Workbook and Step by Step Guide to Self-Publishing in Eight Weeks or Less!
Why are we doing this? We really need your help. We want this book to be in the hands of authors everywhere. To do that, we need you to review this book, good or bad, and leave a review on Amazon. Together we can empower every author.
We’ve also found from experience that some of you are hands on learners. You are the ones who would benefit from an intensive four day weekend filled with workshops to teach you the skills necessary to publish your work on your own. We call this 4 Day Publishing (nicknamed: 40 Day Publishing on Steroids!). Not only will you learn the skill set to publish yourself, but your edited finished manuscript will be published by the end of the four day intensive. Just think, you will have your very own publishing company with your very first book published in just four days. Congratulations!

Seven years? Eight weeks? Four days? It’s up to you. Just make a decision and follow through. We’ll help you.
