Books

I collaborate with health experts to write bestselling consumer health and self-improvement books that educate, engage, motivate, and inspire readers.

My book collaboration services include:

  • Brainstorming potential topics
  • Helping authors build and extend their platforms
  • Organizing and packaging ideas
  • Creating outlines
  • Identifying target audiences
  • Writing and editing proposals
  • Interacting with agents, editors, and publishers
  • Conducting background research and literature searches
  • Interviewing patients/clients
  • Editing manuscripts
  • Fact-checking and proofreading
  • Writing sparkling content that engages and educates readers
  • Supporting promotion, marketing, and publicity plans

I work closely with experts (or not so closely, if that’s what they prefer) to ensure that their unique voice, authority, and message shine through on every page.

I help experts create winning proposals. A well-crafted book proposal grabs the attention of agents and editors. It tells them why your book idea is fabulous, why you are the best person to write it, how you will use your unique platform to market it successfully, and why readers will love it and buy it.

As an experienced collaborator, I know how to make the process of creating a book simple and enjoyable. Working with me allows experts to author a book without having to take an unacceptable amount of time away from clinical practice, platform-building, client meetings, or research responsibilities.

Once the book is written, I can provide valuable advice on identifying and building a platform to market the book, interacting with the media, and getting the book the attention it deserves before and after publication.
