What is the Reverse Writing method?

It is a unique step-by-step system with the goal that makes book writing more logical and easier. Starting at the end 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.

You can learn all about it in my book and workbook ‘Reverse Writing’. This is the starting point for your writing adventure.

You will find that it works even better if you combine this book with my personal guidance with one of these options:

Whether you are young or old – the youngest participant was 16 and the oldest was 86. Many different people have joined my writing retreats; managers, CEOs, digital nomads, entrepreneurs, coaches, consultants, stay-at-home moms, students, and retirees. I welcome anyone with a special story that they like to share.

Write a book about yourself

Have you experienced something that others struggle with? Write your biography to help others with your life story and the lessons you have learned. Recovered from an illness or accident? Developed a business method? Can you share life lessons? Write a book about it.

Book writing training

You don’t have to be an experienced writer. If you have a story, method, or idea, I will help you step by step to structure it and put it on paper. You don’t have to do it alone or reinvent the wheel!

Write a novel

Have you had a story in your head for a long time? Why not just try to put it down on paper? To avoid a lot of unnecessary work and to make sure you don’t get stuck, the structure you learn in my ‘Reverse Writing’ method is super handy.

Time to publish your book

Write and publish a book

Writing a book is one thing. But then you also have to publish it. There are so many choices and questions: How do you find a publisher? What does he pay attention to? And all those possibilities of self-publishing? What do they mean by ‘printing on demand’? How do I get an ISBN number?

I will help you choose between working with a publisher or self-publishing. With the handy choice matrix, you will know exactly which arguments are important to you, what you should pay attention to, and which direction suits you best.

Step by step, I explain the process of writing, editing, designing, printing, publishing, and promoting your book. I’ve done everything myself more than 30 times. I’ve made all the mistakes, checked everything, and found smart and affordable solutions so that it will be much easier for you.

Time to write and publish your book! It’s really possible. You can hold your book in your hands sooner than you think.

Tips for writing your book

“First set up the structure, so that you can then let your creativity run free.”

Tip 1: Start writing your back cover

This page is the summary of your book, your marketing material, and the promise to your readers, plus it gives you the structure for your book.

Tip 2: Start your promotion while you’re still writing

Don’t wait for your book to be completed. You have to learn how to promote in a natural way that suits you. And you need to build a network of followers. You should start early with both. I will help you!

About Esther Jacobs

30+ books experience

Like most writers, I wrote my first book in a linear fashion: I started enthusiastically with 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 and get the success you want. 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!

I like to share my experiences and practical tips with you so that the process is easier for you than it was for me when I started.

Since 2009 I have written more than eighteen books and contributed to about fifteen more books.

As a writing mentor, I have helped thousands of people write their books during my 20 writing retreats, hundreds of workshops and writing classes, or through personal writing coaching.

My superpower is that I can get to the essence very quickly. I have been an entrepreneur for 30 years and have given more than 1000 keynote speeches, which means that I can also help you with your content on most topics.

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.

How a book can boost your business

Are you an entrepreneur, consultant, coach, speaker, healer, or professional? Did you know that publishing your book can have a positive effect on your business? It can boost your expert status by establishing yourself as a thought leader, it's the best egg business card you can imagine, it's a respectable achievement, plus you leave a legacy.

How to write a great blurb for your book

What do you do when you look around a bookstore? You select books with interesting titles and covers and then read the text on the back, right? When selling online on websites such as Bol.com or Amazon.com, you will also be the first to see the blurb or back cover text. And what do you send as an 'executive summary' of your book to a publisher to see if he is interested? Indeed; that same text, your elevator pitch. The back cover is the most important page of your book. But how do you build it up? Below you will find the 6 important parts and a number of important tips for a good back cover.
