Why consider becoming an author? Is the time, money, and resources necessary to create a book of impact even worth it?

We have ghostwritten books for C-Level execs from...

Influence. Impact. Authorship.

Becoming an author is always a major achievement... but never done alone.
Our authors do more than simply publish a book; they make a dent in their Universe. 

Sara Makin
Sara Makin, CEO Makin Wellness

Being 23 & naive to business did not stop Sara from launching her first book, then 2 more. Within 18 months, she's on the cover of Inspiring Lives Magazine, Dispense Magazine, Pittsburgh Avenue West and Steel This Magazine and has been on TV more than 20 times...

Mohan Ananda
Mohan Anada, Founder Stamps.com

It's not every day the company you founded sells for $6.6 Billion. When you also are on the team at NASA and invent a thing called GPS, there's more than one story there...

Ariel Halevi
Ariel Halevi, CEO, Vayomar

Running a 140-person consulting company is no easy chore. Even more difficult is when the book in your "head" rattles around for 10 years. We got it done in less than 6 months...

From Idea to Impact

Our brains rarely conceptualize in a linear way. Organizing your ideas, validating with a focus group, and designing a long-term campaign is vital to your success. That's were we begin.

Become an Industry Icon

Creating a book is not enough nowadays. Without a long-term strategy, a multi-media platform & an interactive community, non-fiction authors don't stand a chance. We'll help you design & execute a powerful process to become "slightly" famous.

What is Your Legacy?

You have a life journey that someone has said, "You should write a book!" On one hand, you know that's true. On the other hand, What's the point? What is the purpose? We'll uncover that first.

Phase 1: Reverse Engineer your #1 Best Seller

  • Before writing a word, we'll conduct focus group research on your idea, book cover, & title to ensure your book will be a winner.
  • In less than 45 days any doubts about your story, message or theme will be gone. What remains is unshakable confidence that your book will resonate with your target audience.
  • We'll help build your audience, media connections & joint venture partners... before your book is written.


Phase 2: Systems-based Creativity

  • Using professional journalism, ghostwriting & our "secret sauce" storytelling recipe, your book will sound like you... but better.
  • While your journalist interviews you, our team works in the background; creating graphics, social media content, & building a large, hungry community is built.
  • By the time your book goes to proofing, you'll have dozens of media connections & a media kit ready to put you in the limelight.


Phase 3: Viral Campaign Map & Execution

  • A book launch can put you on the map, but being an Amazon #1 bestseller is not the destination. That's where we start.
  • With your book published and a professional media kit, you'll be ready to monetize and scale. You'll have a curriculum, workbook and speaker kit to showcase your book & brand.
  • During our 9-step process, a valuable new network of large organizations is being pre-wired to buy thousands of copies of your book.

Beyond Your Book

Why Authoring Your Book Can Change the World

(But You’ll Surely Fail if You Don’t Do This…)

Your story matters. Your ideas need to be shared. But if you depend only upon a book to become the tipping point, it simply won’t work. In today’s ecosystem of information overload, even a social media influencer has an impact that lasts about as long as the memory of a goldfish.

Engagement? That’s cute. What does that mean, anyway?

There is a single foundational element all thought leaders, influencers, and visionaries have that most authors hope for, but very few achieve.

Stop Dreaming. Start Researching.

Your idea for a book may be the greatest thing since sliced bread. Why haven’t you written it and had a dozen publishers beating down your door for a movie deal? For most authors, there’s a bit of doubt and fear, and that's normal.

  • Is what you are saying worthy? 
  • Will people resonate with it? 
  • Can you make a difference?

What if there was a way to find out the answers to all of these questions? Here's the good news. Not only can you get these questions answered, but our proprietary "vet & validate" answers them and begins building your audience... before your book is written.

Praise from Our Author Clients

JOANNE SINGLETON, Author, Daughter of Kate

Frequently asked questions

Why is being an author so important?

In a hyper-fast world of memes, social media feeds, 10 second ads, and soundbites, being a published author is still revered as the pinnacle of author*ity. All the ads, blogs, and articles in the world (which last seconds in the mind of your audience) are nothing compared to that book spine on their bookshelf... quietly and eternally staring at them. 

Your book is forever.

How long does it take?

If we work together, you'll have a team helping you write, edit, design, publish, & market your book. Your actual time commitment can be measure in hours... instead of months. Our authors can expect to go from idea to #1 bestseller in about 6 months.

Once you're published, you'll need a marketing and branding machine to run 24/7. We have tools, systems, and programs to assist in helping you create a steady stream of media opportunities, speaking engagements, and book sales.

There are so many books. Who would want to read mine?

With over 2 million NEW books published every year, will your story stand out?

That depends. 

Our vet & validate process is the same process billion dollar companies use to ensure their new product launch will be accepted. As an author, we run your idea, theme, book cover and title through over 200 data points. Your overall idea may not be new, but your perspective, story, and unique angle will be reverse engineered to perform.

What is the investment?

This is an important question, but should be towards the end of your thought process. Before investing in anything, your needs, resources, and expected outcome (or ROI) needs to be clearly stated. You can invest as little or as much as you want to ghostwrite a #1 bestseller. We have a wide range of services from $5K to $100K that can match nearly any budget.
