About the author

I had a 20+ year corporate career, in mostly male-dominated industries and fields, where I both felt completely comfortable and truly excelled. After leaving the corporate world, I spent a good deal of time studying Female Empowerment. Reading everything I could, taking courses and workshops and ultimately teaching and presenting on the topic. During this time, there was always this nagging question in the back of my mind, “Where is this for men?? Men need this, too.” Hearing this question echoed by a man during a men’s session of an intensive women’s course, I knew I found my purpose. The Warrior cOre was born.

I believe the vast majority of men are wonderful souls, caught in damned if they do damned if they don't existence. I want nothing more than for them to be able to truly express who they are and live their best lives; to be able to experience what it feels like to live as their true authentic selves without societies rules of what a man should or shouldn’t be. And I believe that all men, at their core, are warriors. Not in the traditional sense of a soldier or combatant, rather a crusader for that which they believe in passionately and most deeply. Imagine the world if men were given the freedom to pursue their deepest passions without judgment or ridicule.

I lead, facilitate and challenge from a place of empathy, support and encouragement, free of judgment. After years of bringing this work to individuals all over the world, through 1-on-1 coaching, the desire to reach more people was too great. The Warrior cOre couldn’t wait any longer.

I currently live in New York City.

He has been around the block--from his time in the military as a Staff Sergeant in the US Cavalry, to studying and teaching martial arts and rock climbing throughout North America, to owning a farm, to working for corporate America, to teaching entrepreneurship in post-communist Poland. Through it all, Art has been actively engaged in trying to figure out this thing called life. In the process, he has experienced two marriages, two kids, failed and successful businesses, lots of money and no money, authorship, different cultures and a whole lot of feeling the highs of being a Next Level Man as well as the damned if you do-damned if you don’t frustration and dilemma that many men experience on the daily. This dilemma has driven this particular exploration and his curiosity on what men can do to change the situation for themselves, their loved ones and their co-workers/employees/clients.

Now Art is an executive coach, specializing in entrepreneurs/leaders who seek to build Next-Level Lives and co-owner of Columinate consulting cooperative.

Next Level Men

Journey From Crisis to Creator

Society has defined in very strict terms what a man is “supposed to be.” While stifling, this box was accepted, expected and safe. Now, being exactly what society expects is considered “toxic” and “part of the problem,” with no alternatives offered.

This game-changing book gives men traction to shift from this crisis to the creators they were meant to be.

Synopsis

Masculinity is in crisis.

Many men find themselves in a no-win situation and often do not have any idea how they got there. Society has shoved men into a very narrow box that dictates how they are allowed to be, feel, act, relate and live. Defining in strict terms what a man is “supposed to be.”
For hundreds of years, while arguably stifling, men have been able to exist in this box relatively unscathed. However, as society has evolved, as women have been given permission to shed conditioning and step outside traditional confines, what a man “should be” has remained stagnant. This has devastating effects on men themselves, their relationships and society in general. And in this new world, as we redefine ourselves in light of #metoo and #BLM, staying in this box, “acting like a man,” is now deemed as toxic.

When a man does look for an alternative model of how they might be, might live, the landscape is barren of examples that fit, leaving men without traction, without guidance or safe harbor.

"Next Level Men" explores the conditioning of boys and men, examines the detrimental effects of living in these strict confines and offers options on shedding the old, stale, restrictive thinking and stepping into the man you were born to be. This game-changing book creates traction for men to shift from crisis to creators; to the men they were meant to be. Join the authors as they lay out a customizable path ahead for you to discover yourself as a Next Level Man; as a man who creates a life where you are fulfilled, healthy and engaged with the world, your purpose and your people.

Amy and Art met in early 2019 at an executive conference and quickly discovered a mutual interest in the current state of men and society’s ever declining view of masculinity. As we talked at length over drinks and great food, a shared passion for change emerged. Collaboration, retreats and articles were discussed. It soon became clear that so much more was needed and this book idea was born. Their combined wealth of knowledge and experience, as well as their different gender experiences make them the perfect duo for such a task.

Why support this book?

  • Asking Regena (Mama Gena) Thomashauer to write the forward. Best selling author and motivational speaker, Regena is a leader in the Female Empowerment movement and founder of the The School of Womanly Arts.
  • Masculinity is in crisis and there are very few resources for men to turn to for direction on any other way to be.
  • Next Level Men will be uniquely written from both a male and female perspective.

Similar titles

  • For the Love of Men: From Toxic to a More Mindful Masculinity, Liz Plank, St. Martin's Press, 10 Sept 2019. This book addresses similar topic, though Liz focuses more on toxic masculinity and Amy and Art on general conditioning. Also, she targets women to guide men, whereas theirs is written for men.
  • The Man They Wanted Me to Be: Toxic Masculinity and a Crisis of Our Own Making, Jared Yates Sexton, Counterpoint, 7 May 2019. This book also addresses the conditioning of men, though it is a memoir, so Amy and Art's would be broader in scope.
  • 31 Days to Masculinity: A Guide for Men to Live Authentic Lives, Hunter Drew, self-published, 19 May 2017. This book outlines a step by step process with a timeline targeting married men specifically. Amy and Art's work is less structured and is individual in nature, independent of relationship status.

Audience

Men 30-50 who want to break free of millennia of conditioning and show up differently in this new post #metoo, post #BLM world

Dear Author,

Congratulations on finishing your book!

The choices available to authors in today's publishing world can be overwhelming. It's often difficult to tell the difference between traditional publishers, hybrid publishers, subsidy publishers, and self-publishing companies.

From manuscript to market, 1106 Design provides book design, production, and publishing services for independent authors who seek all the quality of traditional publishing without forfeiting their rights and royalties in return.

1106 Design provides traditional publisher quality with one-stop, end-to-end services from copyediting to worldwide distribution. We operate just like a publisher with one difference: YOU maintain complete control of your book, your schedule, and most importantly, your payments.

Traditional publishers hire experts to produce the book. When a book is sold, the publisher is paid first, keeps some of the money to recoup its investment, and pays the author a small royalty. The publisher controls the entire transaction.

In our model, distribution accounts are set up in your name. When a book is sold, the retailer takes a cut, the printing cost is deducted, and the balance is deposited directly into your bank account, never ours first. The difference can amount to several more dollars per book in net revenue to you.

Our most popular package for non-fiction books, 50,000 words and under, including copyediting, cover design, interior layout, proofreading, eBook formatting, and distribution set up in your name is just $7,353. Fiction titles are slightly lower, $6,488.

Need a different solution? Let's talk! We'll customize our services to your exact needs. Complete information can be found at https://1106design.com.

At 1106 Design, we love helping authors release great books! If all of the above interests you, please respond with your email address and/or telephone and we'll reach out to answer all your questions. We hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,
Michele DeFilippo

IngramSpark logo IngramSpark

Ingram is a rather large company with several different divisions and supplies books to bookstores and libraries in over 200 countries around the world. Ingram also has a print on demand digital printing company, Lightning Source. IngramSpark is the platform that combines those two services together.

At IngramSpark, we work with authors and independent publishers to print their books for orders they need (no minimum order) and we have a way to list the books as available for sale to all of Ingram’s 39,000+ customers- distributors, bookstores, retail outlets, libraries, etc., so you never miss a sale. You would provide us with the print ready digital files (one for the cover and one for the interior) and we print the books as they are sold through our distribution partner’s websites. We pay you for those sales approximately 90 days later. The compensation you earn is based on the retail price you set, minus the wholesale discount you offer our distribution partners, minus the print cost.

The cost for the onetime set up fee, per title/binding, for uploading files to us is $49 for print, $25 for ebook or $49 if you set up the print and ebook for a title at the same time.

All you need is an ISBN for the book (if you don’t have an ISBN you can buy one through IngramSpark for $85), print ready digital files that meet our print requirements- one for the cover and one for the interior- and a credit card to keep on file in your secure account to pay for services, orders, etc.
