Yes, you really should write a book in 2014
Writing a book might be your life’s dream. You might want to tell your story to make a positive difference in the lives of others, or to leave as a legacy for the next generation.
There are so many people out there who intend to write a book but never start – or who make a start and never finish. You can be one of the few who make it happen.
From Tokyo hostesses and teenage mothers to comic actors and athletes, I’ve helped many people to plan, write, edit, polish and publish their non-fiction books. I work with people who want to write their life story to create a moving, compelling book that readers will love.
Just some of the stories I’ve worked with include:
- The founder of one of America’s greatest newsmagazines, starting out at the height of the Great Depression
- A leading cancer surgeon, struck by an aggressive form of brain cancer, but determined to beat the odds
- The little girl who survived two catastrophic accidents and in the process, moved millions, and
- A woman who bore a child for another couple, truly giving the gift of life.
How it works
Collaboration – some people are on fire when they’re telling a story to an audience or to friends, but as soon as they sit at their keyboard the fire goes out. I take those great anecdotes and build them into an enthralling book.
Coaching – I assist people who want to do the writing themselves but need a helping hand to propel, or beckon, or urge them on.
Content planning — I turn great ideas into detailed content and publishing plans (a book “blueprint”) or proposals for publishers.
Critique – Writers come to me for a “big picture” assessment of their manuscript. I provide them with either an editorial report or a line-by-line edit.
My specialties: memoir – life stories – ‘big idea’ books.
