HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Book Counselor method consists of 6 easy steps.
STEP 1. Crystallizing and Positioning
We work closely with you to clarify and crystallize your book idea and position your book at the outset to accomplish your primary goals.
STEP 2. Structuring
Through a series of conversations with you, we structure the main story (or central thesis) of your book and the mini-stories that underlie each chapter. Then we use those stories to engage your readers and transform your book idea into a concise but comprehensive outline of your book. As we like to say, if it’s not in the outline, it didn’t happen (because we won’t ask you about it in the next step). So we work with you to get it all in there.
STEP 3. Asking Leading Questions
We conduct a series of structured interviews with you where we walk you through the book outline by asking leading questions that allow you to speak or perform your book into existence. We use this simple, enjoyable, and oftentimes cathartic process to get all of your relevant stories, knowledge, and expertise out of your head and onto a recording.
STEP 4. Editing
We have your audio recordings transcribed, professionally edited and proofread, and submitted to you for review, comment (including requests for another round of edits), and approval. This isn’t old-school ghostwriting; it’s your book, your voice, and your words, but our editors and proofreaders will turn your rough oral draft into a polished, professional written one.
STEP 5. Publishing and Distributing
Once you’ve approved the manuscript, we manage book cover design, layout, interior design, eBook conversion, ISBN numbers, Amazon accounts, print-on-demand services, and everything else necessary to prepare your book for professional publishing and distribution.
STEP 6. Launching
We manage the initial bestseller ebook launch campaign for you, including properly positioning and categorizing your book online and utilizing our extensive network of contacts to support you on the launch date, with a goal of making your book a #1 bestseller in its category on Amazon.
To date, we have never failed to launch a book that we’ve published to #1 on Amazon.
