Not everyone who wants to write a book needs a ghostwriter or collaborator to make it happen. If you intend to write your book yourself, I can assist you with many other services at Your Book Ghostwriter.
If you have a plan for writing your book but find yourself unsure of how to develop it, I can get you started and keep you moving. As your Book Development Coach, I will be dedicated to empowering you with the tools, guidance, support and encouragement you need. Book coaching often includes a strategy session for how to take your plan and execute your vision. I can also provide professional feedback on your writing, guidance on structure and organization, ideas for enhancing your author’s voice, and the unwavering support of someone who is right there with you. A dedicated and seasoned Book Development Coach can make all the difference in turning your compelling idea into a dynamic book.
Once you believe your book is complete, you’ll want to ensure that it reads well and is free of basic errors. I can offer basic proofreading, detailed line editing or large-scale content or developmental editing. A well-edited draft can separate an amateur from a professional. Whether you’re writing a memoir or autobiography, or a purpose-driven book, I can help your writing shine.
Book Proposals and Queries
Literary agents and book publishers reject about 98% of all books and book ideas submitted to them. Often, they hardly read beyond the first page. How can you make sure your book gets the full attention it deserves after all your hard work? A compelling and professional query and a polished Book Proposal can greatly enhance your chances. Even for experienced writers, these tools can be intimidating when you’re not familiar with what is expected. I can write these important pieces for you, or edit and advise you in writing your own Book Proposal and query. Then I can assist you in devising a target search for a literary agent or publisher.
Want to know the hottest trend in book publishing? It’s the growing number of authors who choose to publish their books themselves. With traditional publishing in the tighter grip of a few major corporations that take fewer risks with newcomers, the pendulum will continue to swing.
Why do authors choose self-publishing? Complete control over content, better deals on book sales and royalties, a faster turnaround from writing to publishing, etc. Authors also have more self-publishing options at more affordable costs than 20 years ago. I’ve had two books of my own commercially published and three books self-published, and I’ve assisted dozens of clients in both domains. I can help you make the decisions that are right for YOUR book. My colleague, a seasoned professional book designer, is available for book cover design and interior graphic design and formatting to prepare books for self-publishing.
