Write a book? Me?

Yes, you! You can turn this dream into reality…

Don’t let the idea of having to write a book hold you back. It’s easier than you think, and you don’t even have to actually write the book yourself…

You don’t need to be an expert to write a book. As long as you know just a bit more than others, you have something to contribute:

  • You have expertise, an important message, story or experience you’d like to share.

  • You are knowledgeable about your topic.

  • You can solve problems/challenges or answer questions many people have. That’s why they often approach you for advice.

What you already have is more than enough motivation and content to write a book, or hire a ghostwriter.

Why write or publish a book?

  • A book creates awareness around your topic and helps you to reach a bigger/new audience.

  • Being a published author instantly gives you that ‘expert status’.

  • The increased visibility is a stepping stone to your other products and services.

  • It will boost (or kick-start) your public speaking career.

  • While it is possible to make money with a bestseller, most authors don’t earn much by selling their book. However, publishing will definitely have effects on upselling your other products or services. A book is the best ‘business card’ you can imagine!

  • Writing a book is creating a legacy. It also means the accomplishment of a life goal, which will earn you the respect of many.

  • Holding your book in your hands is a very special feeling…

Don’t make this fatal mistake

“I started writing my book enthusiastically. It was going really well, until I got stuck. Having to go back and restructure and re-write did not appeal to me at all. Now other things seem more interesting than finishing the book…” John X.

Starting to write without a clear structure and outline is a recipe for disaster. The tragic point described by writer John is where most book projects disappear in a drawer or soon-to-be-forgotten computer file.

It doesn’t have to be this way!

My ‘Reverse Writing’ method will make writing, promoting and publishing your book painless, logical, enjoyable and successful. Your book dream can become a reality.

“This is about worker smarter, not harder. I feel empowered by Esther’s strategies and will now publish my own book”

“I’m already an expert in my field. The only thing still on my wishlist was writing a book… “

“Writing a book seemed unattainable. Using the back cover for pre-promotion created the accountability that made the difference.”

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

“The publisher immediately said ‘yes’ after Esther helped with my book-concept”

This is how I do it

As the author and co-author of more than 25 books, writing coach of 400 people and host of 20 writing retreats, I have identified the best system to write a good book, within 1 week to 6 months.
My secret is to start with the back cover. This is your marketing material and promise to your readers, plus it gives you the structure for your writing process.
Outlining before writing prevents you from getting stuck, having to rewrite and risking your book project. It also gives you a completely different writing experience: you just follow your energy when you start writing, not having to worry about what fits where anymore.
Even though this ‘Reverse Writing’ may seem like a counter-intuitive system, it has proved to generate results.

They did it…

More than 400 non-writers (CEO’s, entrepreneurs, marketers, coaches and others with a remarkable story or important message) have written and published their book using my ‘Reverse Writing’ method. Curious? Check out a selection of their books.
Focussing on your back cover and cover first, allows you to promote and even pre-sell your book before it is finished. The writers I coach, regularly pre-sell up to 500 copies of their book by presenting the concept to their network!

You can do it, too!

Writing your book is easier than you think. I have narrowed down the process of writing, promoting and (self-publishing) a book into 7 easy steps. My unconventional ‘Reverse Writing’ method is specifically geared towards CEO’s, entrepreneurs and non-writers, to get real results, within 1 week to 6 months.
