Become an Author – I can help

March 26th, 2015
I know many professionals (in the private sector, government and military) have had careers and lives with significant experiences. And many would like to share their stories, experiences and vision with others. Perhaps to educate and inform, maybe to entertain or even a combination of all three along with creating a tangible product that has commercial value and becomes a revenue stream for them. But they don’t have the time or need help in taking what’s in their head and in their hearts … and getting it down on paper. And more importantly; turning it into a real book that is published and available for many commercial and personal purposes.

A book is a means of creating a conversation where you get to say everything that’s in your heart and mind (that you want to share), and not just, what you can say in the limited time available in a typical sales call, presentation, business meeting, or even a lengthy discussion with someone or even a group of people. If a person has led a life of accomplishment, change, growth, and contribution, their life and work experience will fill one book—and maybe more. I can work with them to make that book happen.

There is a military expression that comes into play here: a book is a force multiplier. It extends a person’s reach and ability to make an impact in their market, on issues and to educate and inform people. It’s an opportunity to broadcast a message, their philosophy and belief to the world. It’s a way to involve a greater number of people in their way of thinking and to transform their lives. The financial and spiritual benefits of sharing their wisdom with the world are enormous and limitless. Why not reach the greatest number of people?

For some the logistics of producing and distributing the book worry them. But that’s not something they have to deal with. I can show them how to produce the book to avoid that and of course as ghostwriter I handle everything from the organizing, to the writing and with my publishing assistance company can also manage the design, printing and fulfillment of book orders at no extra out of pocket cost to them. No stacks of books or having to mail out individual orders. They’ll have their book online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble (and other booksellers) and not sitting in their garage or office (unless they choose to have stock on hand for personalized gifts, etc.).

A book can transform a business or organization and will get their message heard by the widest number of people. A book provides a sense of importance and permanence to their ideas. And it doesn’t have to be a huge book, require a significant time contribution and large expense.

I’ve ghostwritten for clients (who become the author) and can convey their message and story and provide them the huge benefit of becoming a published author. A feat that will help them draw attention to their cause, their business or organizations (books are great fund raising and brand building tools). Becoming a published author is an instant conversation and attention grabber and a means to get new or additional media coverage

Trust is very important—and the older I get the more important it is to be selective of who to work with—I’m sure you feel that way too. If you get a chance, visit my publishing site Adducent. Click on Authors to see whom I’ve worked with over the past year to help them publish their books. Those are the caliber of people that I chose to work with that were interested in my help to make their books a reality. If I took on everyone that was interested the list would be at least twice as long. But not everyone is a good fit for me nor I for them. So the person and the subject/topic of their books are very important in my selection process. The client should put me through their own selection process too to make sure I meet what they are looking for. When I work with clients it’s a one-on-one relationship and a very tight circle—no bureaucracy or layers, no hand off to someone else at different stages. From beginning to end, the clients work with me. This is important to me … I happen to think it is equally important for the client.

It was heartfelt and captured the message with a polished simplicity that is very rare in writers today. I really appreciated that aspect of your writing.

  • “The author has not only created a wonderful mix of fact and fiction, he has created characters that are very believable. It makes you believe the characters in the story are real. Usually this is the part of stories that are missing. The story line is great but the characters are flat. Not so with this one.”
  • “This is a really cool story. I found it interesting and intriguing, and it was full of imagery that really helped to set the mood and scene. It was a really cool take on the story of werewolves. Really nice work! :)” WB
