Write your book in reverse

Do NOT make the no. 1 mistake while writing your book.

My Reverse writing method has helped over 400 non-writers and entrepreneurs to get their books written and published.

The secret is to start with the back cover, then create an outline and only start writing when everything is in place. This also enables you to start promoting (and even pre-selling!) your book before it is finished.
