“I finally found a way to write and publish my book without my other projects getting delayed.”

Write your book

Avoid this fatal error!

“I started out writing my book with a lot of enthusiasm. It was going really well until I got stuck. Having to go back and restructure and re-write didn’t appeal to me at all. Now other things seem more interesting than finishing the book…” – Jeremy

Starting to write a book without creating an outline first is a recipe for disaster. Most book projects die the way Jeremy’s book died – in a drawer or soon-to-be-forgotten file tucked away somewhere on the hard drive of your computer.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Make writing and publishing your book a pleasant and successful experience with my Reverse Writing method.

Reverse Writing?

The secret is to start with the most important page of your book. Write your back cover first! This is your marketing material and the promise to your readers. The writers I coach often sell hundreds of copies of their book while they are still writing it, by presenting the concept to their network.

Your back cover also provides the structure for your writing process. By creating an outline before you start writing, you avoid getting stuck and having to rewrite.

My system gives you a completely different writing experience: with a clear structure, you don’t have to worry about what fits where. You can just follow your energy and inspiration while writing, instead of following the page numbers.

“This approach is magical! After I wrote the back cover,
I was amazed to see the entire table of contents come to life in a single session.”

30+ books experience

Like most writers, I wrote my first book in a linear fashion: I started with enthusiasm and a good idea on page one and then struggled through to the last page. A year – and a lot of hard work, rewriting and restructuring later – this finally resulted in a book.

I have experienced all the ups and downs during the writing process and found the best system to write a good book. Since then I write my books within a month, a week, and even once in one day. I am already at 30 books published and still counting!

You can buy paperback versions of some of the books on Amazon.

ChatGPT for writers and entrepreneurs

As a writer or entrepreneur, your time is precious, and efficiency is key. ChatGPT can be your secret weapon for streamlining your writing process, from book drafts to business documents. Here’s how to make the most out of this revolutionary tool.

The best writing software

In the early days, books were written on a typewriter or even by hand. Can you imagine how complicated that was: you had to think of your entire book before you started writing, you could only work from front to back, making corrections was tricky and sloppy, plus you can't change the order. Fortunately, computers and word processors make it a lot easier these days. They also have super useful functions such as the spell check and 'search and replace'. And there are all kinds of great software and apps that can help make your book even better and facilitate writing. Only: you should of course not spend all your time to find the right tools, then there will be no time left for your book. Therefore, here's an overview.
