Additionally, the weekly consulting time spent with SkillBites has held me accountable to complete the process and has provided me with a sounding board along the way.

No time to write your book? Or no interest in spending your valuable time writing it? Or want to hand off the completion of your book to a professional writer? We’ll get it written for you! We’ll find a ghostwriter who will write your book or complete the writing for you, in your voice. If you are starting from scratch, we’ll begin with preparing an outline; or if we’re completing a book for you, we’ll develop an outline of the remaining portion. After the outline is approved, the ghostwriter will interview you to get the content out of your head for each chapter, and review materials you’ve created, such as presentations, articles, blog posts and videos. You can review each chapter as it is drafted to provide your feedback, and review the full book when it is completed. Your book will be done much quicker, with much less of your time required, so you can spend your time doing what you do best. And because it is written by a professional writer, it will be the high quality you desire.
Strategic Book Plan Service
You may have multiple topics you are thinking of writing on, or have a ton of material and need help figuring out what should go in your book. With this service, we help you determine the best topic so that the book you are writing is the RIGHT book for you. We’ll ask you critical questions such as what are your goals? Have you identified the right target audience, and is your topic aligned with the needs of that audience?
You don’t want to waste your time writing a book that isn’t going to get you the results you seek. A major reason many authors get stuck in the writing stage is because their topic isn’t the right topic. This service could be exactly what you need to get unstuck. The workbook you will receive, together with the one-on-one consulting session, will not only help you identify the right topic, but will also help you outline the content you want to include in your book, which will make it much easier for you to write your book. We’ll also devise a plan for you to carve out the time from your busy schedule to get your book done.
Book Outline Services
We understand that organizing all of the steps to get your book written can be overwhelming. That is why we will put together a detailed outline of your book from the information you give us to make it easier to get your book written.
Step 1: We send you a workbook with questions to review.
Step 2: We will schedule a call with you (either by phone or video conference) to go over the workbook and refine the answers to the questions.
Step 3: After the workbook is completed, we will schedule a second call to go into more detail about your book.
Step 4: We will put together an outline of your book and send it to you for your input. We’ll incorporate your feedback into the outline and send you a revised version.
Step 5: Once your outline is completed, you can either take the outline and write your book yourself, or we can write the book for you. It’s your pick! If you would like us to write the book for you, we will provide a quote for writing your book as well as for services such as: editing, book layout, cover design, formatting your book into an eBook, and publication.

- Get a professional layout designed so your book looks good.
- Get an attractive cover designed for your book, that will meet Amazon’s cover specifications.
- Get your book formatted for publication as a paperback book as well as an eBook.
- Obtain ISBNs for your paperback book and eBook.
- Seek some testimonials to include in your book, on your back cover and on your website to motivate people to buy your book.
- Get your book and eBook on Amazon and possibly other sites, such as barnesandnoble.com.
- Register your copyright interest.
- Determine how you will promote your book.
We’ve got you covered. You can learn about how to do each of these and more in our Publish It! Course, and you can get all of these services conveniently under one roof at SkillBites.
