We've recently launched a new service where we're helping consultants and small business owners write short books just like Abby's hugely popular, 28 page, Absolutely Abby's Top 12 Questions Exposed book. If you haven't seen this book, please view a copy.
We currently have six separate book writing clients and a few extra who are in the process of considering joining our program. We intend to add many new clients throughout the year and see this becoming a significant source of revenue for our company.
As with any new project, there are bound to bumps along the way and a few unexpected twists and turns.
In general, what is your availability? We know schedules are subject to change. Our goal with this question is to best match up morning people with morning people and night owls with night owls across four time zones. In no way are you making an absolute commitment to a specific time. During your meet and greet call with the client you'll get a chance to ensure that your schedules will mesh.
Some of our clients are in a rush to get their book done fast while others have many commitments in their life and are wanting a slower pace over several weeks. We'll be asking our clients to select which pace best suits them.
List subjects that you find interesting and feel capable of writing about. It's a big box so feel free to list as many keywords as you can think of. If you need inspiration have a look at your resume, reflect on past clients you've worked with, or simply open up your favorite business news web site.
Examples: agriculture, history, philosophy, travel, animals, human resources, nutrition, exercise, etc...
Select a maximum of 5 keywords from above that you consider your "ideal" subject matter. These are the ones you are most passionate about.
We currently have one client in our program who is writing a book for single dads who are going through a divorce. We are looking for a writer who can bring their life experience to the writing project.
Have you personally gone through a divorce while raising children?
If you have already emailed attachments to Abby, she has forwarded them to me, you don't need to attach them here.
You may choose to:
Maximum of 5 files. 3 MB each.
We've moved towards a "per word" rate for this project. Alternatively, you are welcome to provide a "per project" rate if that's something you'd prefer.
Please read this document for details you'll want to consider when suggesting a rate. (Hint: this isn't simply a "write about this topic" solo writing assignment -- you'll be interacting with our clients in various ways over two or more conversations/writing sessions.)
