What is the thesis and theme?
Thesis of the OSOT project is that each of us have a destiny that is a direct route but never a straight-line; a process that demands we have vision and the ability to adapt, by grace, to the perilous journey to our place called destiny.
The theme of the book is finding your true north and acting on your dreams until you reach the place that defines your destiny, which is often located on the other side of through. Readers will understand through the stories, teachings and models of the contributing authors that destiny is a direct route but not a straight-line. The other side of through is the process that appears to be a series of reroutes, but in God’s plan are actually direct routes to fulfilling His purpose and your potential destiny and dream.
This anthology will use stories, messages, teachings and models of achievement within the book to help readers find the answers to the five life questions that will help them understand and reach their purpose – a place we call destiny. Our contributing author’s stories, teachings and wisdom models will give hope to our readers to right-size their circumstances and help them become clear on how to use their reroutes to reach their place called destiny. A Place Called Destiny will assist people to be inspired to grow through what they go through, so that they can then define their true north and locate their place called destiny. Also, to give the authors the opportunity to honor the people in their lives who have left them a legacy that helps to define their true north and act on their dreams.
The title and subtitle will help to convey that approach. The general concept of the book is that we will combine our various stories and perspectives on our reroutes. The reader(s) will develop a full picture of their kingdom value and the legacy of their journey to their place called destiny. Your chapter will address the topic with your original ideas, theories, perspectives, experiences, stories and so on.
What should be written in my chapter?
The information in your chapter should motivate, inspire, inform and empower readers while providing them with ideas and strategies that will help them to achieve more personal and professional success in their place called destiny. Feel free to use stories, humor, analogies and strategies for achievement. All contributions should keep a Kingdomcentric tone that is principle based because of the diverse readership of this work.
HINT: You may pull a chapter or parts of a chapter from one of your previously written books or articles that can be adapted to the goals and mission of A Place Called Destiny. In doing so, the reader will get a feel for who you are and what they will find in your other materials and products. This will help your chapter be completed more expediently.
As a lay person or an unofficial leadership gift, can I be included in this book?
Absolutely! If you are a kingdom citizen who has story, a teaching or unique wisdom strategy to help others find their true north and act on their dream in life, this is the book for you!
How will editing, cover design, chapter layout and printing be handled?
Everything other than the actual writing of the chapters will be handled by Danmil Publishing, FIG Publishing and their team of professionals. Just write or submit your chapter, your bio and high-resolution photo and leave the rest to us.
How will I get copies of my books?
Your copies of the finished product will be shipped to the address that you provide, at your cost. After the initial print run, copies of the book will be available by contacting Danmil Publishing at a cost to be determined by the number of books ordered.
What are the benefits of participating in the book?
Short of providing 5-7 pages of written material, your bio and picture, all work will be done for you!! You don’t have to spend months or years trying to write your own book and get it published. You will have the benefits of being a PUBLISHED AUTHOR in a fraction of the time!! All editing, typesetting, cover creation, printing and shipping will be handled for you, at the discretion of Danmil & FIG publications.
Each co-author will be regarded as an authority because of his/her inclusion. In addition, you will be an official author upon completion of this book. Many groups have booked speakers simply because of their published materials.
Each co-author will receive at least 20X the exposure from all of us promoting and selling the book. Many people will read your chapter, bio and contact information and will contact you directly to schedule you for speaking engagements, consulting and to order your products.
If only 20 co-authors performed only 25 speaking engagements (some more, some less) to an average audience size of only 200 attendees, your information could reach 100,000 people!! That’s an amazing and tremendous benefit!! You could not reach that amount of people on your own. This book offers you tremendous exposure to thousands of people you may not otherwise reach!!
You will have a quality book to sell after your presentations, to pre-sell in large quantities prior to each speaking engagement, to sell via your podcast, website or to direct mail to your current customers.

What are the costs for each participating co-author?
We have found that co-authors who have nothing invested, don’t tend to complete the process of writing their chapter. With that in mind, the Roundtable has assessed a $697.00 reservation fee which covers the Interpretive Journey Speakers and Writer workshop and other writer modules including podcast training, production expenses, cover design, editing, layout and printing. Promotional packages will be available at an additional cost. Co-authors are responsible for paying for the books that they order for personal or marketing use. While one paperback book is included in the $697, the Roundtable requests that all authors place a 100-book minimum order to assist in the cost of marketing the book in major retailers across the country and around the world.
