Unfortunately, no. Our area of speciality are "How To" books that generate leads and clients for our small to medium business clients.
How much of my time will you need?
You'll probably find it hard to believe, but for most clients, very little time. First, we'll ask you to hop onto a 60 min discovery call. From there we'll usually prepare your chapter topics and sub topics... which you'll need to check (5 - 10 mins).
Then once approved, we'll write your book outline which you'll need to check (10 - 30 mins). This stage is really important. Though some clients can move from this stage really fast, others we suggest take their time. The book outline is like the plan to the house - we need to nail it before writing the book. If we do, then the book writing side of the experience is much quicker and easier for all.
Finally, you'll need to check your book once we write it. Depending on the length that could be as low as 60 minutes. If it's longer then obviously you'll need more time.
So, let's tally that up: Your time investment might be as little as 2 hours spread out over a month or so. And voila! You're a published author!
But we've had clients had to invest more time because they're requested longer books - this is natural. Still, compared to writing your own book, you're saving probably 100 or more hours!
Who owns the copyright?
Do you prepare the book cover?
Yes! We'll design a professional book cover... and typeset it as a "trade book" so it's ready for physical printing. We'll also prepare for it for Amazon KDP and PDF, too.
Do you need to interview me or have access to recordings of me speaking?
If you have recordings, we'll use them. If not, then we don't NEED them. We can write your book without recordings.
Do you take care of the book marketing?
Yep, we can. Over the years we've worked with hundreds of authors who have in turn sold millions of copies of their book. We have one client right now that's selling 30,000 copies per month of his book. That, in turn, has helped create a $30 million yearly revenue business!
Another client we just helped to engineer a strategy that he's looking to add $3.6 million per year at 90% margins in consulting sales directly from people that get his book.

Why don't you guarantee Amazon bestseller status on your Silver and Gold package?
That's simple ... because we're not doing the marketing for you. We offer those packages because most people just want us to do their book and don't want our help on the marketing.
Do you print my book?
No we don't print your book for you... because... we're not a printer! What we can do is typeset your book as a "trade book" (5' x 8') and get it ready for printing... then it's as simple as placing your order with a printer.
For small print runs we recommend www.blurb.com
For large print runs we recommend www.friesens.com
What if I'm not happy with my first draft?
It's really simple. We'll rewrite the content until you're happy. Having said that, rewrites are rare because we work on your book one stage at a time... and at each stage you sign off. This prevents unpleasant surprises.
Can you please explain your guarantee?
The guarantee is very simple: you must love your book or we keep working on it for FREE until you are.
Do you write a book outline before writing the book?
Yep, we do. It's actually a critical step in the process. It's good for you, as the client, because you can see the direction of your book. It's good for us because we can buckle down exactly what you're looking for.
Special note: We of course expect revisions and updates to the book outline. That is included in the price. But if we draft a book outline and you want to change direction (meaning we have to scrap most of the original) then there'll be an extra charge of $500 to start fresh.
How long before my book is ready?
From discovery call most books are done within 8 weeks or so. Sure, some are faster and yes, some are slower. For a more detailed insight into the timelines please go here: https://fubbi.co/book-timelines/
