Outline: Funnel your information through Skype, and our expert book coaches will help define your book’s topic and goals. After clarifying your book’s message, we’ll determine your target audience and create your niche.
From there, your book coach will define your book’s concepts and messages and develop a detailed outline that will be used in writing your book.
Interviews: You will work directly with one of our professional writers, who will interview you, using questions based on your outline, to create the content for each chapter of your book. These interviews are recorded and transcribed by a professional transcription service.
Writing and Developmental Editing: Using the transcripts from your interviews, your writer will write the first draft of your book manuscript. It is a skilled process that is individualized to each other, maintaining the author’s voice, tone, and message from first page to last. (This process includes ghostwriting, developmental editing, and book doctoring. We take great strides to ensure your voice is evident throughout, not the voice of the writer/editor.) Your book’s page and word count will depend on the content and length of your interviews, number of chapters, scope of your message, and recommendations from our editorial team.
Professional Editing: Once your manuscript is complete, it be copyedited by a professional editor. The editor does much more than proofreading, checking spelling, punctuation, and grammar. He or she will review your entire book to make sure there are no inconsistencies or conflicts in the manuscript. After the editing process, the manuscript will be returned for your review, revisions, or edits. When complete, your book will be polished, professional, and ready to publish.
Book Cover Design: Our team of graphic design professionals will create a unique and appealing book cover that is the same high quality of traditionally published books. We carefully select our cover designers, using only those skilled professionals who work with major publishers.
Package and Publish: Once your book cover is designed and your manuscript is edited, the interior of your book will be formatted with a custom layout to create a professional book that meets printer specifications. A digital version will then be created so your book will be available for Kindle and other electronic book readers. The publishing process includes making your book available for purchase on Amazon.com, as well as bookstores and other online retailers.
