That's precisely why you should talk to us--we'll help you make sure your idea is good enough for a book.

Our process does not work unless you actually have a book’s worth of ideas in your head. We don't add any content to your book; we only get your book out of your head. So the very first step in our process--before we start--is ensuring that you do, in fact, have a book in you.

Not everyone has a book in them, and we're happy to tell you that. We only want to work with people who have a good book idea that will be interesting to readers and bring them a clear ROI.

The reality we’ve found is that most professionals actually have more than one book in them. Someone who has spent a lot of time gaining deep expertise in a field typically has a lot of knowledge that would be more interesting to people than they realize. For most people we deal with, the question is not whether they have a book in them, it's how many, and which one should they do first.
