with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell
of all thy wondrous works.”

Yes, you! I'm calling you an author. I guess you want to be one because you're reading this post. Do you like the sound of that title, "author"?
Well, I'll get direct to the point: you can kickstart the journey to becoming an author when you attend my seminar called, well, what else but, PROJECT AUTHOR!
You know you don't have to be like the many people in this world who have dreamt of writing a book but got stuck not knowing how to go about it and never got near to publishing their book, let alone writing a few chapters.

You can be like, Dr Marnie, one of my past students who've always dreamed of writing a book. Now she actually has two books written and published. This is what she emailed me after having her first book published:
"To my Project Author mentor Ardy Roberto: You have such a wonderful program that helps a lot of aspiring authors achieve their dreams, and I am one of them." - Dr. Marnie Prudencio, Project Author student, and author of The Best Investment: Preparing Your Child's Body, Mind and Soul for Life's Adventures
And Dr Marnie is not the only one. I'm thinking of Project Author students like Randell Tiongson, Jayson Lo, Dennis Sy, JC Libiran, Leila Hernandez and even Miriam Quiambao (yes, she was my student before she became my wife!).
This is what a former bank executive said,
"I'm very happy to be part of Project Author because this has proved to be the tool I needed to give birth to this book, which has been brewing in my mind for years. I'm very grateful to Ardy Roberto and the team for inspiring me and guiding me to get this book done." - Leila Hernandez, Project Author graduate, Now the author of The 9 to 5 Millionaire.
And yes, I will be like your midwife in the birthing process of your book. And I'll help you make the birthing process much less painful with less "contractions." Actually, I just finished writing my 10th book recently. It felt like (I imagine) giving birth. Of course, the women are protesting about me using that metaphor in my FB post, but I'm not comparing the pain of childbirth with the "pain" of finishing a book. It's the joy of finally seeing what you've been carrying inside you for months or in the case of others like Leila, for years.
In this workshop series you’ll be with fellow writers and be inspired to write. I’ve gathered stories and lessons that will inspire you to jumpstart your book dream and equip you with practical tools and knowledge (from organizing and brainstorming your content, and learning how to start writing that book even if you think you’re too busy to write).
Imagine seeing your name on the cover of a book being displayed and sold in bookstores
I'll help you discover your right way to get started to write; and how to see your book through until it's published and out there in the market. You'll discover writing and publishing "hacks", how to avoid "newbie" mistakes, and you'll learn how to navigate the ins and outs of writing, publishing and promoting your book.
You'll also hear inspiring stories from a special award-winning guest author who'll I'll invite as a surprise guest. You'll learn how I "block out writer’s block" and how I come up with book ideas, and compelling content that have made my books best-sellers and win awards.
Looking forward to writing with you!
Thank you and God bless!
Founder, Project Author
