Have questions about working with me?
Will I write my own book or will you write it for me?
You have the knowledge and experience to write your book. Together, we will co-create compelling content that will engage your readers and cause them to think, feel, or do something extraordinary when they’re done reading. In my work with you, we’ll dig deep to excavate the main points you want to convey to your readers. We will flesh out those points by adding compelling stories, case studies, profiles, and other content. If, however, you require a ghostwriter, we have an exceptional professional writer on our team who can ghostwrite your book.
How will the coaching sessions be conducted?
Our coaching sessions will mostly be conducted by phone or Skype. On occasion, we will meet in person. Follow up to our sessions will include detailed notes of our discussion, as well as tasks and next steps to perform along with firm deadlines.
How long should I expect my book project to take?
At the start of our work together, I’ll provide you with a production timeline so you’ll know what happens first, next, and last. As a general rule, our book production process takes between nine and twelve months, from concept to book in hand. For more about the Write Your Life Book Production Process, click here.
Can you guarantee my book will achieve my stated goals?
I will help you create the most engaging, compelling content for your book. And our team will create professional copy editing, cover design, and interior layout, registration, marketing strategies, and other publishing services. Through our proprietary process, we will enlist beta readers to review your book and provide quality feedback to enhance and improve the content and ensure your book meets your stated goals.
How long should my book be?
There is no perfect length (number of pages or words) a book should be. Different genres have certain standards. However, today’s readers tend to prefer shorter nonfiction books (150 to 250 pages) that succinctly cover a topic, provide useful insight and tips, and include engaging stories and results.
When should I start marketing my book?
From the moment you make the commitment to publish your book, you should be marketing it. In our work together, I’ll share some unique strategies to help you get readers hungry for your book before its launch, to keep them interested once it’s released, and to keep your book relevant for years to come.
Should I publish my book as a physical book or an ebook?
The format of your book depends on the preferences and reading habits of your target audience. Make your book available to readers in as many formats as make sense for their interests. You don’t have to choose one or another.
