Okay, before you say “yeah right!” or “she’s full of baloney” – hear me out. You CAN writeyour book without lifting a finger. We often hear how people are not getting their books done, even though they have a deep desire to share their message or story with the world. Here are some ways you can easily implement to get your book out into the world.
1. Put together an anthology. An anthology like our book Speaking Your Truth, is a great example of a book sharing a message, yet the writing is primarily done by contributing authors who have a similar message. Put together some guidelines, put out a call for entries, and start collecting stories.
2. Record and transcribe. You can easily record yourself talking, and then have transcriptions done of the recording. This way you don’t have to “write” it all yourself, but you can easily get it out there by speaking it someone else. You could also do a series of interviews for your book this way, and have those calls transcribed as well.
3. Hire a partner author or ghostwriter. Did you know that the majority of celebrity written books and biographies are largely in part due to a ghostwriter? Don’t feel as though you are cheating by hiring someone else to write the words for you, a partner author is still holding your vision and ideas, and even your voice in the book when they put pen to paper. You just don’t have to do the dirty work.
4. Find past projects to repurpose. Have you been writing blogs, newsletters, journals or other material for the past few years? If so, you might just have a book sitting on your hard drive. Take a look at everything you’ve done before and look for ways you can repurpose previously written work.
Okay, so no more excuses. You can get your book out there easier than you’d think. If you’d like to inquire about our partner authoring services, email us today.
