Help Writing Books
While each project is unique, we consistently use one essential strategy. We start with your Wish List (which we can help you to create) outlining what you want to accomplish once your book is in your hands, this enables us to make sure that the book is written in a way that helps you achieve your goals. We then implement our user-friendly, highly effective collaborative system to write your book in your voice and your expressed purposes. We’re here to help writing books.
For example, some of our authors want more clients or customers for their business or professional practice. Some of them want to become household names, known brands. Others want more public speaking or panel expert opportunities, want their own radio or TV show, or want a syndicated column. Some want to tell their story as a cautionary tale to help others avoid painful experiences they suffered. And many of them are at a crossroads in their personal and/or professional lives. That being so, they correctly view the book as an investment, one that will help them re-invent themselves as they gear up for career or life changes.
The research process for many of our books includes taped interviews, and e-mailed homework assignments. We also often make use of our authors’ speeches, blogs, journal entries, correspondence, and anything else that might provide relevant content for the book. The taped interviews often prove to be the most powerful and informative part of the process and help us take you where you need to go with your book.
We typically charge between $50,000 and $100,000 for ghostwriting a book, $25,000 to $35,000 for a Book Proposal (see what a Book Proposal and a Book Report entail below) if you want your book brought to a literary agent (we have some of the BEST), and $5,000 a month for public relations and marketing, once your book is complete.
With self-published works, we supervise all aspects of design, printing and production (there are additional costs associated with these). We can show you our secret recipe for creating a gorgeous book and you will have many options to choose from. All of these design elements must meet with your approval. We measure our design, production, print and print-on-demand team against the best of the best and always seek to provide not only top professionals, but the least expensive options.
Before we begin the process, we will meet with you, evaluate your story, determine what’s possible and then send you a detailed Writer for Hire Agreement itemizing and defining exactly what we will do for you, along with a timeline detailing progressive work deadlines and a payment plan, all subject to your approval. All rights belong to you, unless we all determine that we want to pursue a different arrangement. We receive payments in affordable portions as we feed you more chapters at each stage, confirming that they meet your approval, until the project is complete.
In the PR phase, we will get the buzz going that can turn you into a successful author among niche audiences in your field or with the world-at-large–or both.
The time has never been better for you to release your story, professional wisdom, or motivational message to the world. Are you ready to contact us and take the first step to becoming the author you were meant to be?
