I, Teresa LeYung Ryan, say: “You are THE expert of your experiences and an authority in your field. Whether you’re writing fiction or non-fiction, make your name synonymous with the themes/subject matters/issues in your writing. When you build your name, you beat the game. You too can be happily published.” 

Why did I write THE 22 minutes for 22 days workbook?


To help you thrive in today’s publishing arena.


What is the game and WHO are the players?


The game is the fiercely competitive arena of the publishing world. The players are:  


  • authors with proven track record / platform / fan base / celebrity status. 
  • authors who are also seasoned publishers or promoters.  
  • authors with no budget, limited budgets, and big budgets.  
  • authors who know a little bit about the publishing industry. 
  • authors who are looking for agents to represent them.  
  • You and your colleagues who fit one or more of the above profiles. 



What you’ll need in order to fully benefit from the workbook:


  • A name  
  • Something to promote   
  • Basic computer skills (take a course; ask a friend to show you)  
  • Access to the Internet, monitor, keyboard and mouse (libraries have them)  
  • An email address (sign up for a free address with Gmail or Yahoo or Hotmail if you don’t already have one)  
  • Determination  

Through this workbook, I will be your coach for 22 days.

Why 22 days?  When you stick to a program for 21 days, you develop new habits. I want you to fortify yourself with new habits, graduate on Day 22, and from that day on… look forward to finding other name-building games and thrive as an author. 


Is your career worth investing 22 minutes for 22 days?  I say YES!
