Tom Bird - The Man Behind the Method
While serving as a publicist for major league baseball’s Pittsburgh Pirates, Tom Bird had a life-changing, perspective-altering, spiritual awakening. This spiritual awakening would set the compass for the remainder of his life, produce the sale of his first book and reset, forever, how he would see writing, publishing, and life.
Tom’s awakening and eventual success as a best-selling author and the innovative, spiritually-led approach he took to get there, directly disputed all he had learned, been taught, or read about writing and the authoring of books up to that point.
True to a promise he made to share what had been revealed to him, Tom has spent the last thirty-five years sharing the unique, inside-out approach with authors and writers of all types worldwide.
During that time, besides writing more than thirty books himself, Tom has appeared before hundreds of thousands of aspiring authors through webinars, retreats, seminars, radio talk-show appearances and through over 4,000 lecture appearances at hundreds of different colleges and universities.
The fundamental pillars of Tom’s Method:
- The book that’s calling out to you to be written is already created and written on the so-called other side of life. So it does not need to be created by you. Instead, it just needs to be released.
- The cornerstone of effectively and functionally connecting with one’s book lies in communing with what Tom refers to as the Divine Author Within (DAW) state.
- Once connected with one’s book through the DAW state, amazing results can transpire, including writing one’s book in a few days.
- The writing of one’s book through the DAW state comprises a major leap into one’s dharma, or life purpose, and thus comprises a major, positive, life-changing event and/or shift as well.
His unique method has led to the completion of tens of thousands of books, more than one hundred of which have ended up as Amazon best-sellers.
What Tom’s method has done for so many, it can do for you as well.
Tom lives and works in Sedona, AZ, although his workshops and writing seminars are offered in many locations across the U.S.
Tom’s Book Publishing Program
After learning the ropes from some of the best, most innovative minds in the publishing industry, and at the request of his devoted authors, Tom started Sojourn Publishing, LLC, which includes his own book publishing and fulfillment firm and The Publish Now (PN) Program.
Tom takes great pride in the publishing design of Sojourn Publishing, which is structured to return all artistic, editorial, and publishing control to his authors, who receive 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of their book. Whereas a conventional publisher can take an average of two years to take a book to the shelves, Sojourn Publishing provides the same services and opportunities for distribution but accomplishes the same result in two or three months.
Possibly the aspect of Sojourn Publishing that Tom is most proud of is his development and design of the Author Development Program (ADP) that offers authors the opportunity to be walked through the full revision, completion, and publication of their books by way of a virtual classroom setting led personally by Tom himself.
Working with Students
Over nearly the last three decades, Tom, in an effort to share his innovative and successful approach to writing and publishing with as many aspiring authors as possible, has made over 4,000 lecture appearances at over 100 different colleges and universities including the following:
