“You don’t even need to have written a book,” said the ad. What does that mean?!

What I mean is you may have already created enough content in other forms to be shaped into a book – it could be a collection of blog posts (more than 50 would be good). It might be a series of presentations or white papers you’ve created in the course of your work. It could be online course material, or even a set of podcasts or videos (let’s say around six hours or more of audio/video would be a great start).

Perhaps the idea of writing a whole book daunts you – or doesn’t interest you, but having a book to support your expertise and thought leadership does. Let’s start a conversation and I can often help you get a book out of you that you don’t even need to write! (Note this isn’t the same as ghostwriting, but is a form of expert editing of your collection of content, shaping it into a useful form for your audience.)

Let’s talk about your new book
