What Are Writing Diamonds?
Writing Diamonds are the valuable gems you have created and hidden deep within yourself.
They are what makes you an expert about subjects others are interested in knowing more about.
You can transform them into an authoritative business providing a range of products and services.
Writing Diamonds Ltd empowers you to do this through our content marketing and book publishing services, consulting, training courses and membership community: Writing Diamonds Academy.
1960s: Our Founder
Writing Diamonds Ltd was founded by Deb Donnell. She is Gen-Y, and grew up with three Baby Boomer sisters in Christchurch, New Zealand. She enjoys empowering people through personal development, entrepreneurship, and secure technology (in fact, she is great at making technology simple for non-techie people to use).
Deb develops a love of diamonds while growing up in the family jewelry business, a passion for writing, spelling and grammar at school, and in 1991 she gets her dream job: working for a travel book publisher in Bath, England.
Deb studies Linguistics at university, indie publishes fiction books under her imprint, Jade Eagle Publications, and leads a group of writers. In 2003 she chooses her Life Mission: to empower people to release their trapped books through self-publishing.
Deb incorporates her indie publishing company under a new name, KESWIN Publishing Ltd. She begins to explore different business systems, including network, affiliate, referral and online marketing. She is hired to launch and market new sports/rehabilitation equipment for Gyroboard. Deb attains a Certificate in Professional Editing and Proofreading.
Deb establishes Small Biz Incubator LLC, with a Seattle, WA, USA based partner. This is operated as an online business education forum, and a website hosting company. Together they mentor individuals from around the globe. The focus is on members building Search Engine Optimized WordPress blogs, and learning content and social network marketing. During this time, Deb develops the Diamond Publishing System™ to simplify the writing process for members who have never written before.
2010: Deb is a guest speaker at a live event held in Portland, Oregon, USA, which focuses on online marketing. 2011: Deb runs a workshop on Content Marketing in Victoria, BC, Canada. Deb also travels to Montreal, QC, Canada for a natural diamonds grading lab, part of the requirement of a Gemological Institute of America Graduate Diamonds Diploma (completed in 2012).
A series of violent earthquakes strike the city where Deb Lives in 2010 and 2011 (Christchurch, New Zealand). She resigns from Small Biz Incubator in order to focus on recovering from the impact of the disaster. She researches, writes and publishes earthquake related books, which are local best-sellers (published by Keswin Publishing Ltd).
Deb establishes and incorporates Writing Diamonds Ltd. She works with business clients who want to build their authoritative brands through content marketing and book publishing. She also runs offline workshops, and writes a series of training manuals on the Diamond Publishing System™.
Writing Diamonds Ltd builds the platform for Writing Diamonds Academy.
