We turn ideas into books

We turn ideas into books. Even in our digital age, no Forbes article or TechCrunch post holds the same prestige and gravitas of a professional, well-written book.

The problem is that creating a book is painful. The process is opaque, confusing, and time consuming.


Not anymore. At Book In A Box, we’ve created a new process to turn your idea into a book.

In short, we interview you in a systematic way that properly structures your ideas, and gets them out of you in words. Then we turn those words into a book—in your voice. All you need to do, as the author, is answer questions about what you already know. Everything else is handled by our team of experienced publishing professionals.

How it works

Our Origin Story


Book In A Box was founded because an entrepreneur needed a way to get her ideas out of her head and into a book, without having to spend years doing it herself.

At the time, there wasn’t a way. If you wanted to publish a book, you had to write it yourself and publish it yourself (and navigate the complicated and slow publishing industry).

We solved that problem for her, and the result is this company, Book In A Box.

The whole story about how Tucker and Zach used this to create Book In A Box is detailed in this piece (including the funny way that our first client, Melissa Gonzalez, called Tucker out).
