Are you feeling called to write a book but have no idea how to start? Do you wish you could talk to an expert who could, through one conversation, provide you with a map for how to move forward? This is for those who are ready to get started on a book but need a sherpa to help figure out what the book is and how to get started.
On the call, we'll interview you until we can clearly break down your book idea.
Within a week, we will present you with an outline for your book based on what we gleaned during the call so you can proceed with writing your book. If you decide you want to hire us to help after that, the cost of the outline will be applied toward any of our other services.
"I’d never written a memoir before, let alone a book outline. While I knew the story that I wanted to write, I was far less sure as to how to wrap my mind around getting started. Anna and her Launch Pad Publishing team invested a significant amount of time listening and talking to me about my story and my writing goals, and subsequently crafted a wonderful outline that I used as a jumping off point to write my memoir. I highly recommend this service."

You can but fulfilling that request is contingent on their availability.

Usually within a week of the call.
Not at all. This service is designed to help you get started and not to hinder you. While we are using our years of expertise to provide you with the strongest outline we can, there's no reason for you to follow a structure that doesn't feel right.
We absolutely can! Check out our writing and publishing services here. What you paid for your call and outline will be deducted from any service you purchase.
