Private Counseling to Help You Write and Publish a Bestseller

Write Your Book As You Speak. We Can Help.

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 or loaded questions that allow you to share your wisdom in a relaxed, conversational way. We record these interview sessions. Then we transcribe the audio files, edit the manuscript, and do everything necessary to turn your wisdom into a professionally published bestseller in your words and voice.

The entire process typically requires approximately 60 hours of your time on the phone or Skype over a 7 to 9 month period. We’ve completed projects in as little as 3 months, and we don’t rush you if you’d like more than 9 months (which is perfectly fine), 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.

How Our 6-Step Process Works

Write Your Own Book as You Speak - The Book Counselor

CRYSTALLIZING & POSITIONING

We help you to crystallize your book idea, define your genre and target audience, and position your book to benefit you and accomplish your objectives.

STORY STRUCTURING & OUTLINING

Through a series of conversations with you, we apply the hero’s journey story structure to the main and supporting stories of your book and use those stories to develop a concise, professional outline.

ASKING LEADING QUESTIONS

Using the outline as a guide, we conduct a series of recorded interviews with you where we ask leading questions designed to elicit your best ideas, stories and wisdom in a relaxed, conversational way.

EDITING & PROOFREADING

We have your audio recordings transcribed, edited, proofread, and returned to you. This isn’t old-school ghostwriting because our editors take great care to preserve your words and unique voice while making sure the book reads exceptionally well.

PUBLISHING & DISTRIBUTING

We handle all of the publishing details for you, including book cover design, interior design, eBook conversion, ISBN numbers, Amazon accounts, and everything else necessary to publish and distribute your book. You retain all rights, royalties, and ownership of the book.
