Synopsis

The problem in the personal development and self-improvement market for the target reader is that every book merely tells you what you need to do to be a better version of yourself. Every author presents their list of things needed to grow and find meaning in life. Their end goal is to educate the target reader without regard for actual learning and growth.

In Craft Your Calling, Marc Casciani gives you a 30-day warm-up to prepare for a journey to craft your calling. A calling is a worthy occupation where one derives meaning. It requires hunger and passion. It leverages the one true gift we have. We’re all here for a reason. We’re all here to do something great. But it’s not through our job. It’s through our calling. The Bible says in Ephesians 4:1 that we are to “live up to the life which God called you.”

Marc Casciani as a professional coach has completed the journey upon which you the reader want to embark. He has crafted his calling, and his story uniquely qualifies him to be your coach in this endeavor. This book is not for everyone, but if you commit, then you won’t have to walk your journey alone.

Why support this book?

  • Hollis Haff, Pastor of Discipleship - New Community Church, a key influencer endorses my book and says it's “Where What Color is Your Parachute meets Purpose Driven Life.”
  • Marc has amassed a social following over the past 2.5 years on LinkedIn where I've published 150+ consecutive stories. I have focused on meaningful content and quality connections. Readership ranges from 1,000 to 20,000 any given week.
  • He has clientele of his training system that will gladly affirm it's effectiveness.

Similar titles

  • Perspective: How Our Lives Get Channeled, by Lee Thayer, Xlibris Corp (October 20, 2017) - It is similar as it professes to take the reader on an adventure to understand yourself and the world. It is different in that it is secular and only offers to educate.
  • Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life, by Gregg Michael Levoy, Harmony (September 8, 1998) - It is similar is that attempts to get the reader to understand what a calling is, but it stops short of helping them to find their calling.
  • Callings: Twenty Centuries of Christian Wisdom on Vocation: Twenty Centuries of Christian Wisdom on Vocations, by William C. Placher, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing (July 15, 2005) - It is similar in that it takes a Christian perspective of calling, however it only presents an anthology by gathering select passages on work and vocation from the greatest writers of Christian history.

Audience

The book is written for professionals who are captives of Industrial Era thinking, systems or bureaucracy and who connect with the problem/solution in my Synopsis because they want to break free from the daily grind and live a life of significance.

Advance praise

“Where What Color is Your Parachute meets Purpose Driven Life.”

Uniting authors, readers, and service providers
through a revolutionary book publishing platform

SOOP gives you personalized attention…

SOOP is a small virtual publishing company headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, with a core team based in the US and additional contractors around the world. SOOP currently focuses on curating a small number of volumes for publication each year to enable its team to dedicate a great deal of time to working with its authors directly - not just on the manuscript, but also on platform-building and promotion. Anyone from a marketing manager to the CEO is a phone call away.

...but doesn’t compromise on quality.

While SOOP is a small company, we have a highly skilled production team. Our Director of Publications served as an art director at large New York publishing companies for over 25 years. Our Director of Editorial Services spent decades in fast paced news rooms where careful but timely editing was critical, and our Director of Premium Programs is himself an author and the founder of a small press. Our overseas contractors are carefully vetted and trained.

SOOP focuses on democratized marketing strategies…

SOOP was born after its founder Wade Fransson asked “what if.” Specifically, “what if the publishing industry was created today, with 21st century technology?” The answer? A focus on democratization both with regards to who gets published and to how SOOP would promote its books. SOOP focuses heavily on social media and online digital advertising, micro-targeting interested readers, ensuring that every dollar of marketing money is laser focused on finding an interested reader.

… yet still delivers bona fide successes.
SOOP may not have the massive marketing budgets of its big New York cousins, but it does have successful books. Its carefully planned and executed pre-order campaigns have delivered a string of #1 rated Hot New Releases on Amazon and has worked with an up-and-coming British politician to achieve a coveted #1 Amazon Mover and Shaker Rating.

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
