It’s another gorgeous and peaceful day here in Central Ontario. Yesterday I ended up leaning into the feelings of peace and tranquility so much I snoozed away half the afternoon on the couch!
The only downside is that I’ve left myself a pile of work to do today to get ready for my Amp Up Your List Building workshop tomorrow, and also the monthly drop for my Coloring Patterns Monthly Membership. And I slept in this morning, so it’s just past noon as I’m writing this and I have a ton of work to get done today!
But before I do that, here’s what I have for you today…
Top Picks This Week
Pick #1 – New Training: To Affinity and Beyond
This is a new course created by Jayne Willingale and Jan Small on how to take your existing PDF templates and use them in Affinity. I’ve was given a review copy and have been through the first module so far. Based on that, I’m really looking forward to diving into the rest of this because I want to learn how to use Affinity Publisher for more than the basics. The course content includes 25 step-by-step videos and covers:
- how to deal with all kinds of template elements including backgrounds, tables, text and images
- how to cope with missing fonts and your options for replacing them
- how to turn a lackluster or not-to-your-taste template into something special and unique to you
- how to use your Affinity software to get your printables ready to sell no matter which software they were created in.
You also get the templates that are used in the videos so you can follow along and create your own new products!
Pick #2 – Healing Mantras, Affirmations and Meditations Platinum Ekit with Bonus Offer
Alice and Yusef have a new Ekit filled with Healing Mantras, Affirmations, and Meditations available this weekend. If you’re in the personal development niche, you really want to take a look at this! You can get started for as little as 9.95 with the Silver Package, or add more content and go for the whole enchilada in the Platinum Enterprise Pack.
Here’s a look at what’s included in each option:
And if you want to try before you buy, you can grab this free pack with a poster, coloring page, and two cards:
Bonus Offer – Purchase the Platinum Enterprise Pack and I will send you a set of 10 previously unreleased affirmation coloring pages. Email receipt for details.
Pick #3 – Email Practice Club
So, it’s one thing for me to teach about list building, but when it comes to actually writing emails that are more than laundry lists, I fall a little short. So I’m very happy to announce that my friend and former coach, Angela Wills has just launched her Email Practice Club. Each month, you get email prompts, a live training, and a live Q and A session for $20/month. You can also choose the annual option if you prefer that.

A Surprise Sale To Help You Get Ready for Q4
I don’t know about you, but my mind has been on Q4 and everything I need to do to get ready for it this year. I’m always leaving it until the last minute, and I never have enough books publishing or products in my Etsy store to really take advantage of the season. And I’m determined to do better this year!
So last night, I was surfing through my inbox, and noticed that Ken Bluttman has decided to have a Summer Sale on all his products. If you don’t know Ken, you’ve probably at least seen a few of his products like the Logic Puzzle Mastery, Puzzle Book Master, Kids Math Printables, Coloring Book Mastery, just to name a few…
He’s decided for this weekend only (today through 5 a.m. Eastern Monday morning) to offer them to you with a 50% discount when you use coupon code ALL50 – The only catch is, you have to purchase each one separately because they’re all on Warrior Plus and there’s no way to do a cart.
Here’s the list of products available:
- Activity Book Mastery **
- Puzzle Book Mastery **
- Kids Math Printables **
- Trivia Book Mastery
- Coloring Book Mastery **
- Low Content Creation Machine
- Kidz Activity Printables **
- Kidz Puzzle Books **
- Drawing Prompts Mastery
- Comic Templates Mastery
- Logic Puzzle Mastery **
- Profit With Nonfiction
- 1 Hour Book
- Your Publishing Biz
The ones marked ** are the products he’s launched that I have purchased, so you know I do put my money where my mouth is! I’ll probably pick up the drawing prompts and comic templates ones this weekend for myself too.
And here’s a quick infographic on how to add the coupons on the Warrior Plus Checkout…

Tools & Training
Creating Coloring Pages in Affinity Designer
The Creating a Coloring Book with Affinity Designer course from my friend Kerie Hinchliffe is a good one for you if you’re wanting to create your own images for your coloring books. I’ve gotten through the first module where she goes through where to find images, and what file types to look for. I’ve also got through pieces of the second module where she talks about the parts of Affinity Designer we’ll be using in the rest of the course. I really like how clearly Kerie explains everything and even though I’ve used Designer for a few things, I’m learning a lot in this course that’s going to help me with publishing my own coloring books down the road.

What’s Up Next Week…
There’s a whole lot going on next week, starting with the Amp Up Your Business Workshop Series. On Monday it’s me talking about list building with content upgrades, on Tuesday Jan is talking about amping up your profits with a VA, and on Friday Mel will be sharing ways to amp up your wordpress site. And then we’ll have two more sessions the following week as well. The price goes up once we go live tomorrow, so if you want to grab all 5 workshops for $17, today’s pretty much your last chance to do that! https://ritchiemedia.ca/ampupworkshops
As far as products go, on Monday JR Lang has a new mega pack coming out, Piggy Makes Bank has new content, Sue’s Monthly Inspiration Templates content drops, and so does this month’s edition of Coloring Patterns Monthly. Tuesday will see new content from Tools for Motivation, Cindy Bidar has a new offer for you, and Lori Winslow will be running a retirement sale. More details on all of that to come! This is also the week that Mel usually drops the new content for the Kitchen Sink Plus too. If you’re not a member, you can check that out here: https://ritchiemedia.ca/mw-ksplus
That’s about all I know of so far. But you know I’ll keep you posted if I hear of anything good!
That’s it for me today. I’m going to grab a drink and dive right into my to do list for the afternoon and see how much I can get done before Shaun gets home.
Have an amazing day/evening! Create what makes your heart happy.
