Turn your knowledge or story into a book!
Your story, idea, or method deserves to be shared. The good news is that anyone can write a book. It is simpler and less time consuming than you think.
You have the inspiration, the content, and the knowledge; this Reverse Writing book offers you a step by step approach, which has been proven successful.
Most people still think that writing a book means starting on page one and working their way through to the last chapter until it’s finished. However, far too many writers get stuck and fail to complete their book with this traditional approach.
‘Reverse Writing’ turns the entire process around, by starting with the last page of your book, the all-important back cover. The structure this provides allows you to follow your energy instead of the page numbers. Even the promotion is reversed: rather than waiting till you finish the book, you market – and even sell! – it while you are still writing.
‘Starting at the end’ may sound counterintuitive, but it’s actually very logical. More importantly, it really works! Many authors share their success stories in this book.
This step-by-step guide will completely refresh your writing experience and result in a successful book.
This No-Excuses work plan:
avoids you getting stuck, having to stop or rewrite;
reveals the best-kept secret to a quick start: write your back cover first!;
shows how to use the back cover as marketing material & content structure;
gives you smart and original writing tips for both fiction and non-fiction books;

In a nutshell: the simplest way to a successful book
“This action plan is magic! After writing the back cover, the table of contents suddenly came to life, to my utter amazement.” Jan van Kuijk

‘From idea to book’ workshop
Millions of people are playing with the idea of writing a book, or are already working on a manuscript. Are you one of the few who will actually finish and publish their book?
During this live online workshop, I will share the secrets, experiences, and practical tips of my 30 books and will answer any questions you have relating to your book.
- Avoid the mistake most writers make!
- How do you go from idea to implementation?
- How do you ensure that your book gets attention?
My ‘Reverse Writing method’ revolutionizes book writing by turning the entire process around. You start with the back cover of your book, then make a good outline and only then start writing. This prevents you from getting stuck or having to go back to restructure or rewrite entire chapters.
The bonus? You can start promoting your book before you even finish writing!
I will explain everything, answer your questions and help you on your way in this live online workshop and Q&A session.
