Publishing These Kinds of Books Is Easy…
Using Our Custom-Built Software
Makes It Even Easier and Much Faster
You Will Only Need to Click One Button
To Convert a Book with Color Pages
To a Book with B&W, Grayscale Pages

Seriously… Just check a couple of option boxes, then click “Go”…

It is not at all difficult…

Our software can convert Color-Pages inside Microsoft PowerPoint to Black&White, Grayscale Pages in minutes…

In the video shown below, I was about to convert a book with 418 pages from Color to B&W, in just about 4 minutes, without all of the normal hassles of doing it manually.

Most people find it unbelievable, but deep down inside, I really am lazy…

I don’t like doing tedious, manual and repetitive tasks…

I am always looking for an easier way to do things… To eliminate steps, and to get more done with less effort on my part…

When I identify things that I must do regularly, and I realize that those things consume a lot of my time, I will go into deep research mode to figure out a better way to do it…

Unfortunately, not every software ships with the functionality I would like it to have…

I literally get very frustrated when I cannot uncover an easier way to do something…

Fortunately, I have business partners who are computer programmers…

I explain to them what I want my favorite software applications to do…

And, they tell me if they can program a solution that will enable me to do it…

Having the Right Automation Tools Available Helps Me
Accelerate My Book Publishing Efforts & Productivity

I originally started publishing low-content books like journals and planners in 2017…

In those very early days, I struggled to create and publish just 5 new books every single day…

It was a real challenge…

It was like when I was a child, and I walked to school, walking uphill – to and from school… 🙂

I am also a very goal-oriented person…

Much to the chagrin of some of the people I work with, I will announce publicly specific dates to complete certain tasks, to force myself to get a goal completed by my chosen target date…

It was in this mindset that in March of 2018, I announced to the world that I was going to produce and publish 1,000 journals and planners on Amazon during 2018…

My math was simple… At that time, I was producing and publishing five (5) books a day…

To hit my goal, I only needed to publish five (5) books a day for 200 of the following 270 days…

Over the next 60 days, I maintained my productivity, and I published 300 books on Amazon…

But, I am lazy, and well, impatient… It. Was. Taking. So. Darn. Long.

As a Result of the Frustration I Was Feeling at This Point,
I Made a Huge Discovery that Forever Changed My Life

I was driven to discover how I could automate a lot of my book production tasks…

I was able to publish 300 journals and planners to the Amazon website in the first 60 days of my “1,000 Book Challenge.”

Once I cracked the nut of automation, I was able to produce and publish another 900 journals and planners in just about three weeks – 21 days!

This experience completely changed my business life for the better…

My income literally exploded overnight!

The beauty of it all is this:

  • I increased my productivity 10-fold.
  • I was able to increase my income significantly.
  • I was able to hire new people to help me grow my business.
  • I was able to explore new business opportunities.
  • I was able to take more time off.
  • I was able to spend more time with my family.
  • I was able to do more traveling.
  • I no longer had to worry whether I would be able to pay my bills.

Automation Tools ARE the SECRET of my Success…

People know that I am an AUTOMATION NERD…

They know that I am always on the hunt to find new ways to automate time-consuming tasks…

The #1 Question people have been asking me for years is, “How can I automate converting Color Images to B&W, Grayscale Images?”

Manually Converting Colored Images and Manuscripts
To Black & White, Grayscale Images and Manuscripts
Is ALWAYS Monotonous, Tedious, Irritating and Boring

From a creative standpoint, it often makes sense to design our book manuscripts with colored-images.

First we design a beautiful book…

Then, we will want convert the colored-images to black and white images to make our books appeal to a much larger audience…

The unfortunate reality is that color-pages are more expensive to print than B&W-pages…

Often, I will publish the color-version of my book, and pass the extra printing costs to my customers…

People don’t mind paying more for those books, when they understand that the book contains color-pages in it…

But more people are price-concious, so I will often convert my color-book to a B&W-book also, and list both at different prices…

But here is the problem with this approach…

It takes a whole lot of time…

Typically, we need to find the colored-images we want to use, then we need to convert those images also to black and white format.

Most of the time, we have to manually convert every single image from color to black and white…

We have to build one book manuscript in color, then we need to build a second book manuscript in black and white format…

It just takes SO MUCH TIME to do two versions of the same book…

This is probably the primary reason why most self-published authors will CHOOSE between color and b&w books…

They will choose the version that is easiest to produce, then they will go to the next book…

Should You Choose to Use Our Automation Tool,
You Will Be Able To Create One Book in Color, Then
Publish One Book as Color, and Another as Grayscale

Let me show you how to apply automation to “Convert a color-book to grayscale, with a simple click of your mouse.

I teamed up with Hans Miedema to produce the software I am making available to you on this page…

This software is a very powerful “plug-in” for Microsoft PowerPoint…

Simply add the plug-in to Microsoft PowerPoint, and start using it straight away…

With it, you can load any PowerPoint file in color-format, select a couple options, then click the “Go” button, and the software will convert your book manuscript with Color-pages to B&W-pages (Grayscale), in just a couple minutes…

Here is how to use it…

  1. Install the plug-in…
  2. Open your PowerPoint file…
  3. Load the plug-in through the “Add-Ins” option on your toolbar…
  4. Choose “Shades of Gray” plug-in…
  5. Tell the software how to handle background images…
  6. Tell the software which styling you want to use in tables…
  7. Tell the software how many pages it should process…
  8. Click “Go”…
  9. Once the software has processed the file, save it under a new filename…

Watch the video below, to see this software in action…

With this PowerPoint Plug-In, you will never again need to CHOOSE between Color or B&W pages…

Instead, you will only need to design your journals, diaries and planners in Color-format, then open the plug-in and convert your book manuscript to B&W (Grayscale) format, with just a few clicks of your mouse!

This software makes converting to Grayscale so easy that you can create two books in the time it used to take to create one book…

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Why aren’t you offering a refund on this offer? Don’t you believe in your product?

A1: We do believe in our product.

We also know that if you are using Microsoft Windows with the Microsoft PowerPoint (2013 or newer) product, then you will have no problems with the software operating exactly as described.

We have demonstrated how the software works in text format and video format.

If you are unsure about your purchase of this software, then please don’t make a purchase today.

Q2: What if I want to take my chances using your software with Libre Office or Open Office?

A2: You will be wasting your money.

It is not even possible for our software to work with Libre Office or Open Office.

Q3: What if I want to take my chances using your software on a MacIntosh operating system?

A3: Again, you will be wasting your money.

We have tested our software with Microsoft PowerPoint on a Mac OS. It doesn’t work.

Q4: What will I receive in the delivery file?

A4: This product is delivered inside of a 68mb Zip file.

Inside the Zip file, you will find:

  • The software Setup file.
  • Two (2) training videos.
  • One (1) PDF file showing the same steps demonstrated inside the training videos.

Q5: Are there any up-sells with this offer?

A5: Yes, there are three up-sells, described below:

  • “Slides to PDF” PowerPoint Plug-In ($17) – Helps you export each slide as an individual PDF file.
  • “PowerPoint Replicator” ($47) – This software gives you the power of automation inside PowerPoint, so that you can literally create hundreds of individual, customized journals, diaries and planners, really fast and with very little effort on your part.
  • “Calendar Creator” ($37) – Software to create custom calendars for your books, using a “Fill in the Blanks” process.

Q6: Are you planning on doing updates to the software in the future?

A6: We are not planning on it, but we are not ruling it out either.

Microsoft occasionally does updates that might impact this software. If that were to happen, we will do a software update.

If we decide there might be a better way to do a particular part of the process, we may update the software for that purpose as well.

Q7: Why should I buy this plug-in when PowerPoint already has a “convert to grayscale” function?

A7: Have you ever actually used that function?

We have. Much to our dismay, it makes huge promises and falls way short on delivery.

It will not convert any background images.

And, it is not consistent in its application of grayscale to the entire document.

Q8: If I upload a color-document to KDP Print, and I choose B&W for my book settings, Amazon’s software will automatically convert my book to grayscale. So, why should I need to buy your plug-in?

A8: Believe it or not, I have actually tested this myself.

The problem is with Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature.

You can upload a color book manuscript to Amazon and tell Amazon that it is a B&W book, and when they print the book, the book will be printed in B&W.

This is done by feeding the book manuscript into a printer that only has black ink in it.

On the website however, when they show people the “Look Inside” feature, they will show the document you uploaded to their website.

Sure, they will print the book in B&W, but when people look at your book preview, they will see a book with colored pages.

Doing it this way will result in a “bad customer experience” for Amazon’s customers.

People will see color-pages in the preview, and then they will receive a book with only black-and-white pages in it.

If you allow this to happen, you can count on getting some bad reviews.

And, if too many people demand a refund on account of expecting color and getting B&W, Amazon might take down your book from their marketplace.

I don’t know about you, but I am not willing to risk angering Amazon to reduce my labor or cut corners in my book creation process.

Q9: Will this software work with converting photographs or images for my coloring books?

A9: You will have to be the judge of how effective it is or is not.

In the video below, I used the software to convert three (3) photos and three (3) illustrations, to give you an idea of what this software could do for you.

Take a look at the video to see what you think.

Q10: What if I have questions that haven’t yet been answered?

A10: I can be contacted by email at: diana@plrplanners.com
