Aspiring Authors

For years, you have said, “I’ve always wanted to write a book”. Maybe you’ve even typed out an outline or a chapter or two, only to read it back to yourself, roll your eyes, and walk away from it feeling completely frustrated. What you most want to know is HOW to get that idea that’s been tugging at your brain and heart for weeks, months, years and turn it into an honest-to-goodness book that people can actually read.

Most people see the process of writing a entire book at the least daunting, at the worst terrifying. It’s a big deal. It’s a lot of work. And what if their idea would make a better blog post or journal entry, but isn’t really suited for mass consumption? How would they even know the difference?

This is the kind of fearful thinking and general lack of know-how that tends to paralyze people and lead them to wistfully sigh, “Maybe one day I’ll write a book” … then do nothing.

But the truth is, if there is a story or experience or information you want to share in a book, then it IS a worthwhile and important endeavor. Not only that, it is also completely doable. When you know how.

Over the last 20 years, I have ghostwritten several books, written compelling book proposals that landed lucrative publishing contracts, and edited manuscripts for one of the Big Five publishing companies, and I can tell you, there is a specific process that anyone can follow that results in a completed book.

There are several ways I share this knowledge and expertise with aspiring authors. Select the option below that best serves your current needs.
