Our Ghostwriter Services Six Step Book Creation Life Cycle
Clarifying Book Goals
Writing a book is not an everyday event, so if we can help you attain several goals through one attempt, then you can ensure that you will have a good writing journey.
Market Gap Positioning
Like any business, knowing where the market gaps are and how to fill those gaps can position you as an expert in your industry and boost book sales.
Author Platform Set Up
Website, social media, articles etc collectivly create you “brand” so that you are ready to be activiley marketed once the book is done.
This phase involves collabrative writing process, alternating with editing and proof reading. Sometimes beta readers are a part of this phase.
Traditional vs Self Publishing
“Traditional” will invole queries, proposal writing, selecting a literay agent, etc. “Self” will involve art direction, pre-press production, printing distribution.
Book Marketing Management
This is continuation of Auother Platform Set up with a few more marketing strategies like book signing events, book tour, virtual blog tours, etc.
This is a crucial phase of book planning that should help you articulate what you need your book to do for you. At the end of this session, you will have clarity about what your book “must have” and what would be “nice to have”. Publishing a book is a great destination, but as an author, you should be able to enjoy the writing journey as much as the result. And, since writing a book is not an everyday event, if we can attain several goals through one attempt, then you can ensure that you will have a good writing journey.
No matter how you publish your book, this phase will help you or your publisher to understand how your book compares to similar books. 5-10 similar books are reviewed with a focus on:
Title, Subtitle, Author, Publisher, Number of pages, Paperback or hardcover, Price, Keywords. You do not want your publishers to cringe if they see a proposal that says, “This book has no competition.” It shows you have not done your homework.
Any well-written, well-designed book can be a bestseller, if marketing has been properly planned and executed for three stages of writing/publishing a book:
1. Pre-writing marketing: Research and outreach strategies, etc.
2. During publishing marketing: Setting up a website, social media engagement, etc.
3. Post-publishing marketing: Book signing events, book tours, etc.
The reason marketing is so crucial to a book’s success, is because each book is a stand-alone business, complete with it’s own revenue and expenses, therefore having a book as a bestseller can not be an accidental event. It has to be planned.
First draft. Editing. Re-writing. Editing. Beta reading. Another round of editing.
This is a 4-step process:
1. Skeleton Draft: We capture the “story arc” or “idea arc”.
2. Clarification: With the ideas captured, we begin filling big holes in the story.
3. Creative Expression: At this stage, we ensure your unique “voice” is present.
4. Simplification: Editing rounds simplify and ensure the content flows.
Traditional Publishing vs Self Publishing
To build a successful author career, you need to know how to get published as well as how to write. If you decide that traditional publishing is the route for your book, then our team can help with preparing a proposal, find a literary agent, and submitting a query letter.
If you decide that self publishing is a good fit for you and your book, then our team can assist with art direction, pre-press processes, printing and distribution.
Book Marketing Management
Your book publishing should not be a sprint. If you believe in your book’s message then you need a long-term marketing strategy that includes a website, social media, PR, and other related strategies.
