I never thought I would author (or in this case, co-author) one book, much less two! But it's done (and available online at both CharityChannel.com and Amazon.com...shameless plug). I don't have #2 -- the Workbook -- in my hands yet, but of the two I think it's the one that's most helpful.
Several colleagues have asked why Cheryl and I would put actual proposals that were funded in our book. The answer is simple. We both believed that showing was perhaps better than telling...and we have fabulous clients that agreed we could publish them. (Please know all the mistakes that you will likely find are ours, not our clients.)
If you buy book #2 (and please ask me how to get a discount before you buy), I hope you find it as helpful as we intended it to be. I'd also ask you to share with me what you wished was inside and isn't. After all, there's always another edition to plan.
All the best,
