WHAT THEY SAY….
“I was blown away by Dr Raman’s online webinar on writing and publishing a book. His ideas and methods challenge the general notion of book writing. This totally resonated with me. As an author of 18+ books, Dr. Raman shared top secrets from his book writing philosophy to tools. What differentiates him is both breadth and depth in knowledge. His presentation was not only rich in valuable information and insights, but also inspiration and motivation!”
– Dr Lakshmi, Senior Program Manager & Keynote Speaker. NUS-DUKE Medical School. Singapore.
WHY A LONGER PROGRAM
DESIGNED FOR BUSY LEADERS : Program has been designed a bit longer deliberately to support busy professionals and corporate leaders. You already have several commitments. You need a longer, well-structured journey that does not let you lose steam or focus. This distributed program will allow you to absorb new techniques and then incorporate in enhancing the quality of the book. 24 checkpoints are reasonably distributed in time to keep you focused on the goals and keep making forward movement.
DESIGNED TO DELIVER A TRULY WORLD-CLASS BOOK: Not many would realize, but developing and writing a publishing-worthy book requires an immense amount of hard work and smart work. Don’t get fooled by money-making influencers who only advocate using templated books. A truly world-class book needs thorough conceptualization, development, proposal, writing, editing, formatting, reviews, graphics, design, and updating (excluding the publishing). All those activities require more roughly 250 hours of investment, based on my experience of writing 20 books. After that, publishing may take additional 3 months to 1 year depending upon which route you take.
DESIGNED TO CREATE PROGRESSIVE PERFECTION: In both programs, you would be required to produce assigned deliverables and show it during the live training sessions. You would need time between live sessions to work on these deliverables and perfect your book. 12-month program would still need 5 hours of your time per week to make progress whereas 6-month program would require you to spend 10 hours a week instead.
YOUR BOOK4LIFE™ IS FOR YOU IF
If you feel strongly about your idea of the first book
If you want your first book to be memorable
If you want to produce world-class quality content
If you want to feel proud of the content of the first book
If you want to explore traditional publishing option as well
If you have never written a large piece of literature before
If you want to become a TRUE authority (not a perceived one)
If your book requires substantial development and research.
If you have very limited time to devote on the book
If you need a proven, systematic framework to finish your book
If you don’t want to produce a less-than-perfect book
If you don’t want to be one among millions of authors
WHAT THEY SAY….
“Raman’s session was extremely valuable and informative. Raman is a prolific author and a multifaceted professional (scientist, corporate leader, thought leader, and so on – to name a few). This session had a lot of very specific and useful takeaways for aspiring authors. It is proof of Raman’s love of learning that he has taken the time to share his expertise freely with others.”
– Sriman Venketesan, Senior Manager, Xilinx Corp, Singapore.

The price of the program (same for 6 month or 12 month version) offered here is a good-will price for my close network and contacts. You get my 2 decades of experience, expertise and distilled wisdom at as low as SGD 25 per hour. How cool is that?
If it seems expensive, try putting a price tag on 1 hour of someone who is a $40bn corporate learning scientist, hall of the fame organization leader, with 2 doctorates, 100 credentials and 20 books, professional speaker equipped with scientifically tested speedier methods.
If not, then put a $ value on your dream of writing a life-time book and then put a number of more years you are willing to sit and wait on it. is it worth that wait?
1 hour 1-1 focused coaching session per month
Personalized reading, feedback, and critique of the final draft of your book
20% discount on follow-on publishing coaching on the published price
YOUR DREAM COSTS YOU
SGD 25 per hour cash + 10 hours time investment per week
IF VALUE OF YOUR DREAM EXCEEDS YOUR COST
Then, yes, do apply!!!
DATES: March 2021
Subject to min 20 and max 30 cohorts
Apply by 31st Jan 2021 to get into the program
Out of scope – Guiding or hand-holding you through all the steps of the publishing process (self or traditional or vanity) is excluded
Out of scope – the actual publication process of any book because different books may suit either a self-publishing route or vanity route or traditional route depending upon your life goals. The program will help you develop your book for the route you target. A separate coaching program on step-by-step self-publishing and traditional publishing routes will be offered at 75% program mark to allow seamless continuation.
Important – There is no refund in this program if for some reason you can’t start the program or can’t continue or you found a cheaper or better alternative. If you have even the slightest doubt about your commitment, bandwidth, schedule, ability to deliver, and personal accountability, please do not join the program. In the unforeseen and unavoidable event if you have to discontinue the program, I would consider giving you an additional 1-1 coaching session, in lieu, over and above the 2 sessions already included in the program to work on your book..
