Marilyn's Speaking Session
Women's Writing and Publishing Summit
Following the signing with my agent, Paul, I received a surprise invitation from Heidi Richards, network moderator, businesswoman and founder and CEO of many businesses. I was honored to be included as a guest speaker at the Women's Writing and Publishing Summit in July.
Here is an excerpt from the Summit description on the website:
“This three-day virtual event features interviews, workshops and networking led by some of the world’s most talented authors, publishers and literary agents. Our Summit is designed to help you develop your writing, stimulate your thinking and assist all stages of writers in the craft and the business of writing. During this summit you’ll get to meet, chat, network, and get to pick some of the best brains in the writing and publishing world.”
The Summit speakers were all notable authors, agents and publishers, so it was truly an honor to be associated. And I might add that men also attended and the key speaker was Dan Poynter, renowned author and expert on self-publishing. I was asked to speak on the topic, “Let the Universe Be Your Guide – Using the Laws of Attraction to Get Your Book Written and Published.”
I was interviewed for an hour by Heidi at the Summit and responded to her very good questions. When I listened to the audio, I was delightfully surprised and pleased at how good the session turned out.
You can find my bio and session description along with the other speakers at the Summit website link above, but I’ll post my Session Description here:
"Let the Universe Be Your Guide - Using the Laws of Attraction
to Get Your Book Written and Published and So Much More!"
Prosperity mentor Marilyn Jenett had no conscious intention to write a book. She didn’t consider herself to be a book writer or author and the only way she would consider writing one is if she had an agent or publisher who believed in her. One day Marilyn decided to tell the members of her network forum how she created her special event company two decades ago using the Universal laws she now teaches.
She was amazed at the way her memories surfaced from her subconscious mind after two decades and how the details spilled out in her forum posts. By the third segment, she attracted an agent out of the blue! As her story evolved over the next eight months – right there online – the word got out and attracted visitors from outside her forum - over 8,000 views to date and hundreds of rave “reviews” and letters of appreciation. And this wasn’t even a book!
How did this happen? How does a first-time writer who didn’t even intend to write a book manifest an agent right from the start, a continuous platform of excited readers, “reviews” and heartfelt messages of appreciation – even a woman named “Angel” out of the blue who professionally formatted her manuscript upon completion? How did she create a story so compelling that the agent signed her upon reading the manuscript – despite the fact that he doesn’t even believe in Universal Laws!
Marilyn will share with you how the synchronicity and guidance that ruled her entrepreneurial life continued to govern the creation of a story and soon to be published book, Feel Free to Prosper: An Entrepreneurial Memoir of Synchronicity and Guidance. It will inspire others to look beyond the Law of Attraction to the guidance of a loving Universe that can easily become our writer, agent and publicist – our perfect guide on the journey – if we can learn to receive the gifts.

Get It Write! The Women’s eGuide to Writing, Publishing and Promoting Your Book
Heidi also asked if I would contribute an article for the above-titled free eBook that would later be offered that would include information of great value from all fifteen Summit speakers. Until I viewed the finished product last week, I didn’t realize what incredible material these industry professionals contributed to this 94-page guide. You'll find it hard to believe that this would be offered at no charge. If you are a writer or aspiring to become one, this is a "must have" book guide that will teach you about writing and about the publishing industry - both traditional and self publishing.
The article I contributed has the same title as my Summit speaking session and is based on the same topic, however I share a lot of different information and detail in the written piece than I did in the session.
Soon, in the next post, I will post the links where you can listen to the free audio of my session and also download the free Get It Write! eGuide.
