Writing Acknowledgements for E-Books

It is important to have an acknowledgements section in your E-Books. Having authored some 1600 articles, 3000 pages of Operations Manuals, 4 E-Books and Co-Authored a Book on Franchising, I can tell you that a properly written acknowledgement, introduction and dedication is smart diplomacy. Many authors rely on teams of researchers, writers, consultants and editors. Myself, generally I use these opportunities to thank sources used in compiling the information. It pays dividends to future projects and streamlines the process in future work as per my theories.

Here is some food for thought. Here is a sample of one of my acknowledgements and although this is from my writing style, perhaps it might give you some ideas for your next Acknowledge Section for your own E-Book. Now then keep in mind my E-Books are generally written to assist people in learning how to do something better and may not be applicable to your work, although maybe this might be. The Acknowledgement was written for an E-Book on; "How to Run A Successful Car Wash Fundraier." I hope this example helps you.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

I personally wish to thank you for taking the time to learn more about car wash fundraising. It will give you personal satisfaction to host such an event that raises money for a good cause. The fact that you are reading this book proves that you are one of the dedicated leaders in your community. I'm sure you realize that raising money for an organization is difficult. It takes hours of preparation and a major commitment. The great thing about a car wash fundraiser is that it's considered a fun event. Car washes as fundraisers are an American tradition. Similar to apple pie, hot dogs and baseball where there are some pies, hot dogs and games that are far better than others, car wash fundraisers can be ok or they can be extremely fun, build unity, make great money and provide a superior service to donors.

The goal of a car wash fundraiser has always been to make money and have fun doing it. If we take that one step further, to a higher level, we can create an annual event that everyone looks forward to and will generate in excess of $10,000.

If you follow the procedures in this book, your fundraiser will run smoothly and efficiently. These methods have helped countless organizations make five to ten times as much money as they expected. Follow these time tested methods and you will make money, you will have fun and you will have everyone in your group volunteering for the car wash committee next year. You can count on that or my name isn't 'The Car Wash Guy."

I wish to thank my young beautiful Russian wife Michelle. Through her dedication to editing and her support in making sure I finally finished this work, it was all possible.

I would also like to thank the County of San Mateo's Storm Water Pollution Control NPDES Study Group. Thanks to Bob at Contemporary Books publishing company who has a soft heart for helping the small communities of this country. Thanks to Rick and Lisa at PartheNet for putting this work on the Internet for all to view. Thanks to the charities of the Conejo Valley in California for allowing me to help in over one hundred car wash fundraisers and for educating me in the process. Thanks to the Western Car Wash Association (WCA), the Michigan Car Wash Association (MCA) the International Car Wash Association (ICA), Cleaner Times magazine, Car Washing magazine, Clean Car America magazine, Automobile Laundry News magazine, Mobile Tech News and Views magazine and Modern Car Care magazine for information and understanding of the diversity within our industry. Thanks to Contract Cleaners Manufacturers Association, National Detail Association, Conejo Valley School District, California State Assemblyman Tom McClintock, Richard Harris of the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Board, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Fish and Game Agency and the Coastal Commission. I would like to thank every car owner who has given back to the community by driving through a fundraiser car wash.

You can be assured that any proceeds derived from this book will go toward the building of car wash fundraising trailers equipped with water reclamation equipment for future generations to use in their efforts to keep goodwill and community unity alive for years to come. I sincerely hope that the American tradition of hot dogs, apple pies and car wash fundraisers will live forever.

Give 100% in everything that you do!
