Write Your Book
As You Speak

An Interview Process to Help You Turn Your Ideas Into a Bestselling Book

You talk, we do the rest.

At the Book Counselor, we’ve developed a new way to write a successful book that bypasses the painfully slow and frustrating aspects of traditional writing and publishing.

In essence, we interview you by asking a series of leading questions that allow you to share your ideas, stories, wisdom and expertise in a logical, manageable way. Then we turn your audio files into a well-written, professionally published book in your words and unique voice.

The entire process typically requires about 60 hours of your time on the phone or Skype over a 6 to 8 month period. We’ve completed projects in as little as 3 months, and we don’t rush you if you’d like more than 8 months, but one way or another, we deliver for you.

You literally write your book as you speak.  It’s incredibly quick, easy, and yes – fun.

You talk, we do the rest.

The company hatched from the difficulties that Joe Bovino, founder and CEO of The Book Counselor, experienced while transitioning from lawyer to first-time author. After practicing law more or less full-time for the first 19 years of his career, Joe decided to finally write a book. He finished it, but it took four long years, and the opportunity cost was huge. He also failed to become a bestselling author on the launch date when a consultant hired to manage the process dropped the ball despite an enormous number of sales right out of the gate.

Joe was discouraged and almost gave up writing for good, but he studied what gurus in book writing, publishing and marketing were doing, put his own spin on it, and discovered a new way to write and publish successful books.

In late 2014, he started writing his second book, finished in less than 90 days, and launched it to #1 bestseller status in January 2015. Later that year, he relaunched his first book and made it a #1 bestseller after all. He quickly wrote a third book, which became his first international #1 bestseller. And, on August 30, 2016, Joe’s fourth book became his second international #1 bestseller. His fifth book comes out in January 2018 and should be his biggest and best yet.

Now, it’s time to turn your wisdom into a well-written, professionally published book, and we’re here to make it an extraordinarily quick, easy, and enjoyable adventure.

All you have to do is talk and let the magic happen. We’ll do the rest.
