Cape Town based, Michael Haupt, is one of 100 authors from around the world taking part in this event, pioneered by author and motivational speaker, Gertrude Matshe.
100 authors from around the world have come together to write 100 books in just 40 hours. Their work will be revealed in the world’s first ever mass social book launch, with accompanying series of YouTube video clips.
When first-time author, Michael Haupt, heard about the project, he saw it as a great opportunity to get his message out. He successfully completed his book, titled ‘Would Jesus Tweet?’ – a handbook of radical marketing strategies for difference makers, disruptors and other troublemakers.
Additionally, like all participants, Michael Haupt filmed a Reality TV style interview with Gertrude Matshe, which can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/writeabookin40hours
In order to leverage the large number of authors working together on the project, marketing agency AccuraCast devised a strategy to jointly promote all the works via a first of its kind social book launch, which includes promotion of their interview footage.
According to Getrude Matshe, “We’ve invented a whole new way to sell books. This is no longer about passive posters and book reviews. These authors are real people, with real experiences and real knowledge to share. YouTube video allows them to share their stories with the world, in a real, personal way”
