Facilitated Book Writing

Everyone has a book in them, right? I'll coax yours out of you and onto the page—even if you feel daunted by the idea of writing an entire book. 🧠⇢📚

ᖴᗩᑕIᒪITᗩTEᗪ ᗷOOK ᗯᖇITIᑎG is somewhere in between ghostwriting, coaching, book doctoring, and editing.

The aim is to use YOᑌᖇ ᗯOᖇᗪᔕ and YOᑌᖇ ᐯOIᑕE, whether you are writing 🖊 or speaking 🗣 the words that become the first draft of your book.

It's best for 🔸memoir, 🔸autobiography, 🔸self-help, and 🔸opinionated general nonfiction.

This unique approach comes from my experience teaching memoir workshops for a decade, writing my own memoir, and talking to countless authors and would-be authors about the writing process.

You choose whether to write your answers, record them on your own time, or share them in a recorded conversation with me.

If you speak your responses, I will work with the recording and a machine-generated transcript to craft them into clear written prose. (There’s an additional fee for the transcription based on the number of recorded hours.) If you write, I'll provide some light editing.

In either case, I'll return the manuscript pages along with additional questions and prompts: designed to flesh out what's there, explore new areas of curiosity that surfaced, or generate material for another part of your story.

We'll continue this process until you've developed a full book draft and captured the heart of your story.

⊛ You decide how much to tackle at once, and what you want to write about next. After the first round, you'll always have a good handful of prompts to choose from.

⊛ You decide if something's too sensitive to include, or if you want to tuck it away for yourself once it's on the page.

I'll provide structure, encouragement, challenge, and company, along with plenty of know-how. When your first draft is complete, I'll review the manuscript as a whole and make structural and other suggestions for revision. I'll also give you an overview of the various paths from first draft to publication (whether traditional, self, or hybrid)—and which ones are your best bet.
