But It Is Not Advisable To Do So
In a story in the Financial Times (FT.com), the author says, “Physical diaries and notebooks are more than holding their own against the digital onslaught of Google docs and online calendars.“
Maria Sebregondi is the co-founder of Moleskine, a luxury notebook company founded in 1997 and based in Milan. 90% of her company’s gross sales are directly tied to paper. She says that in a digital world, paper is still valued by the young business professionals, who make up her customer base.
She said specifically, “We always see an increase in annual sales of notebooks and paper planners despite other digital opportunities.” Her company’s revenues were €128m in 2015, up from €53m five years earlier. During the first nine months of 2016, her company continued seeing growth in the sector, with year-to-date net revenues of €95.89m.
Neal Whittington, owns a boutique stationer in Islington, north London, called “Present and Correct“. Through his store, sales of diaries have increased by an average of 18 to 20 percent annually since adding them to his inventory in 2009. “And we always sell out,” he says.
Older people tend to favor paper for their to-do lists, journals and personal diaries. But even in the age of digital, the younger crowds are discovering for the first time the real value of using paper to keep themselves organized and to record their thoughts and musings for reference later.
With The Courage To Try
My friend Debbie got into journals and diaries, about two years ago.
In the last 730 days, Debbie has published 1,128 print journals and diaries that she makes available for purchase on Amazon.
On a “per day basis,” she is publishing an average of 1.55 books per day.
But, if I were to stop doing the math right there, you would miss “the big picture“, which is…
She doesn’t publish books every day, and she published most of these books when she still had one of those full-time jobs!
In fact, she typically published 8 books a day, working on them before she went to work and again when she came home from work.
She also told me that she has another 300 books mostly finished, but not yet published.
She told me that her success with publishing comes down to JUST 4 THINGS…
- A large selection of pre-made templates;
- A little bit of imagination to help her make each book different;
She now has a legacy to leave to her granddaughter… A monthly income that will continue as long as her books remain in print and available for purchase on Amazon.
Until then however, she has managed to eliminate her need for social security checks to pay the bills.
She is not going to have to rely on the U.S. Government to send her a check every month for her to be able to make the house payment, the car payment, or to buy groceries.
With just a bit of committed effort, she has secured for herself the ability to live her retirement years in comfort.
One Hour A Day To Your Dreams?
Think about it…
Debbie would get up in the morning with books on her mind, and she would work on her books right up until she left to go to work for eight hours.
Then after her work day was done, she would run errands, come home and feed the dogs and herself, then she would sit down to finish her work.
Before her head hit the pillow each night, she would have published 8 more print books through Createspace to be sold on Amazon!
She was creating and publishing 8 books in the eight hours that most of us spend sitting around imagining what life could be like without a job.
She took the action that the rest of us were just think about taking, and she has built a large catalog of book titles, while we were still thinking about how to get started.
She was producing 8 books in roughly 8 hours — one book an hour, on average…
Now she has a huge inventory of books that is going to take care of her financially for the rest of her life.
Journals, Diaries and Planners?
Let’s take a look at the Historical Sales Numbers and Prices of some of the Journals available on Amazon…
and Insert The Template Into a Word DOC,
You Have The Ability To Do This Too
Fortunately, there is nothing difficult about producing journals, diaries and planners, so long as you have the right tools.
Debbie said that her success has come down to just 4 things…
Commitment, imagination and perseverance are traits that most of us already possess…
The fourth thing was — a large selection of pre-made templates that she can insert into her Word Docs.
Which is where we come in… We are going to bring you a steady supply of templates that you can use to create your own Journals, Diaries and Planners.
If you can follow this simple process, then you could publish your first journal or diary today, before your head hits your pillow tonight…
- Right Click, and Save File As… (To Your Hard Drive)
- Insert File Into… (A Word Doc)
- Rinse and Repeat about 30 Times…
- Create a Title Page (Book Title and Author Name)
- Save Your File…
- Upload it to Createspace… (These are print books, not Kindle ebooks.)
- Fill Out the details on Createspace…
- Use Createspace’s Cover Creator Software…
- Then hit a Submit Button…
To shorten the learning curve for you, we are providing you access to our Createspace video training, so that you can see just how easy that part of the process really is to do.
Adding More Templates For You To Use
The first set of Done-For-You Templates includes:
- Calendars – Weekly, Monthly and Yearly Calendars with source files
- Covers – Designs for your Book Covers
- Blank Pages – Background Images for Blank Pages
- Lined Pages – Background Images with Lines Drawn in Pages
- Extra Designs – Meal Planners, Text Boxes, and To-Do Lists
I am just scratching the surface with what you will find inside this website when you sign up for the first month.
You Will See in Month #2
Let me be clear…
We are not looking to produce books that will crack Amazon’s Top 100 Best Seller’s List!
Debbie doesn’t do any marketing, and she never spends money to promote her books…
Her goal is to provide consumers multiple opportunities to buy her books — her journals and diaries…
She produces books under dozens of pen names, to give people the ability to see each of her books as being different from other similar books.
She currently has 1,128 opportunities to be found by consumers, looking to purchase books just like hers.
While you are not going to find her books on Amazon’s Best Seller’s Lists, she is still producing Amazon Royalty Checks that are much larger than many book authors who have spent years learning to write a better book. And she spent less than one hour creating and publishing most of the books in her inventory!
With Journals, Diaries and Planners?
You would be surprised!
Especially given that a lot of these books are just 30, 52, 90 pages of blank lines!
Inside the publishing industry, journals, diaries and planners are referred to as “blankbooks”, for a very good reason. Often times, they are filled with just blank pages with a few lines or boxes on them. 🙂
Most of these books are organized around 30 days, 52 weeks or 90 days. Occasionally, someone will offer a 365-day option, but those are very rare.
We recommend publication through Createspace, which produces paperback books Print-On-Demand (POD). These books tend to sell at anywhere from $8 to $25 per copy, resulting in royalty payments of anywhere from $2 to $15 per copy sold.
The fact is that you don’t need to sell a lot of these books each month to make a good living as a publisher.
Smythson, a privately owned luxury British stationer, produces a “lambskin Soho diary,” which it retails for £155.
When you change the cover materials, you change the value of the paper with blank lines inside of it.
Who would pay £155 for a lambskin diary? Apparently, lot’s of people. 🙂
The bottom line is this…
I could pay $2 to get 100-sheets of notebook paper and put it in my three-ring binder to use as my diary.
But most people would prefer to pay $10-$20 for a perfect-bound book that they can use in the same way, because it is a lot harder to lose pages, and best of all, it naturally feels like it is more valuable in that format.
Give people what they want to buy…
Give people the ability to purchase from you journals, diaries and planners that you can produce quickly and easily, using the templates that you will find in our member’s area.

“Book A Day System”
This video is the short version that will show you what is inside the website and what you are going to get for your money…
This next video was my original sales video, but it was way too long, because it was packed with training too…
This video alone may be worth more than what we are asking you to pay for your first month’s subscription. 😉
I personally know a lot of very successful book authors, and all of them tell me…
Every author that I know who has topped the five-figures per month in book royalties level has pointed back to say, “I got here, because I didn’t quit — even when the chances of success seemed so remote to me, I kept going forward…”
They created their first book, then their second book and third book, and they just kept on producing more books.
Eventually they had thirty books, forty books and fifty books.
They didn’t stop. They just kept producing more and more books.
They believed that not every book was going to be a winner, but that didn’t matter, because when you have enough winners, good things will come to those who keep going forward.
There is literally no easier way to publish books fast, than using pre-made templates to compile print journals, diaries and planners!
And the “Book A Day System” will make is so easy for literally anyone with a heartbeat and pulse, with little more than copy-and-paste skills, to jump into this publishing genre immediately.
That Works Best For You
Your subscription can be cancelled at any time. Just let us know ahead of your next re-bill date, and we will cancel it for you. (See FAQ for more details.)
Q1: If I subscribe to your program, how long am I committed to using it?
A1: We sell monthly, quarterly and annual membership plans. You can choose to cancel your subscription at any time, before your next re-bill date.
Should you decide to cancel your subscription, simply send me an email at email@example.com to tell me to cancel your re-bill agreement.
Please allow me up to 72 hours to respond to your request, as I do have a life outside the Internet as well.
Although I request a 72 hour notice, I do answer most emails within just a few hours.
Q2: Can I purchase a monthly subscription, then upgrade to a bigger plan later?
A2: Yes, you may. Simply purchase the new plan when you are ready to so, then send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know, and I will cancel the re-bill agreement on your smaller plan.
But please bear in mind that if you were offered a coupon to get access to a larger plan, the coupons that you might have been offered are always limited time offers.
Q3: What if I have questions about this program that you didn’t answer for me?
A3: Send me an email at email@example.com. I ask that you give me up to 72 hours to respond, before you start getting antsy about how attentive I am to my business.
Technically, I answer most questions in just a few hours, but I sometimes leave the house for a few days out with the family.
Q4: What if I purchase your program and cannot gain access to the website afterwards.
A4: The page on the website you use to log into the website is the Member’s Page.
There are additional notes on that page that address other login issues you might have, but most people are able to login without any issues.
If you have any problems that cannot be sorted on their own, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to help you personally if there is a bigger problem.
Please allow me up to 72 hours to respond, as I am not always online. But bear in mind that most requests are handled within just a few hours.
Q5: I am trying to purchase with this coupon, but the coupon doesn’t seem to be working.
A5: To use the coupon, you must click on the Purchase button on this web page.
When you get to the JVzoo page, you will be asked if you have a coupon. Put the coupon into that box and click Apply. Make sure there are no spaces in the coupon code. We always make sure there are no spaces in the coupon, prior to publication of it.
If your coupon still doesn’t work, then you may send us an email, and we will let you know whether that coupon is still valid.
Our support staff can be reached at email@example.com, but please do allow us up to 72 hours to respond, as sometimes we are no where near a computer for a few days at a time.
If you contacted us ahead of the termination date on a particular coupon, we will often make special arrangements to let you use the coupon at the time in which we get back with you.
Q6: If I am paying you $XX per month in order to access your membership area, how am I going to recoup my investment? Will anyone actually pay me the same $XX to buy the book I produce using this website, as what I paid to make the book?
A6: Believe it or not, this is a real question I got one time on a similar offer.
The bottom line is this…
The $XX that you pay me each month gives you access to the tools and resources you need to publish LOTS OF BOOKS real fast.
If you create one journal with all black-and-white pages inside the book, your Print-On-Demand production cost at Createspace is going to be close to $3 or $4 per book.
If you create a journal with color-pages inside the book, your Print-On-Demand production cost at Createspace is going to be around $8 or $9.
You will set your price according to how much you would like to earn per book sold.
If you sell a black-and-white journal for $15, you may make close to $10 for every copy that people buy on Amazon.
If you sell a book with color-pages, the same $15 book will allow you to make about $5 per copy sold.
Depending on the profit margin you choose for yourself, the cost of this program will pay for itself with the first 5, 10 or 20 copies of the books you sell in your first month and each month thereafter.
Everything you earn above your costs of purchasing access to this website IS… Well… Pure Profit.
If you are not making back enough money to pay for this program, then you should make more books to sell on Amazon.
If you decide that this membership program does not live up to the promises I have made for it, then please ask for a refund of the money you paid for access to it.
Simply send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, to request your refund.
Please allow me up to 72 hours to process your refund, as I do occasionally have a life outside the Internet.
Also be advised that if you file a dispute with PayPal, instead of giving me a chance to process your refund directly, my Money-Back Guarantee will become null-and-void, and I will fight your dispute with the intention of winning the dispute.
There is no need for either of us to be ugly about this. If you are not satisfied with this program, simply ask for a refund and allow me time to process your refund.
This offer is valid only for your first thirty days of membership.
After your first 30 days of membership, all refunds will be subject to my agreement.
If you need to cancel your subscription, simply send me an email to email@example.com to make that request. Please allow me 72 hours advance notice to terminate your re-bill agreement.
If your email request to stop the service was delivered to me prior to the re-bill date, I will refund that last re-bill payment.
To Secure Your Subscription
P.S. If you start producing lots of books quickly, as we recommend, this program could very quickly pay for itself.
However, we cannot make any kind of guarantees about your earning potential. We literally have no idea what you will do — or if you will do anything at all — with the training and resources we provide to you through our membership program.
P.P.S. If you have any questions about this program, drop Bill Platt a note
at “firstname.lastname@example.org”. I will be happy to answer your questions.
