The Fastest Way to Write a Book From Scratch
"Anna has gone above and beyond what I expected to find by giving my formally chaotic practice structure and providing me with a roadmap. But most importantly, she made me feel like I can do this."
It’s a simple process:
Step 1: Have a consultation with an experienced author (either an LA Times or NY Times bestselling author with a background in traditional publishing) to discuss and flesh out your book idea.
Step 2: Receive a one-page outline from your author and decide if you want to move forward with your sprint (the cost of your consultation and outline will be applied toward your sprint fee).
Step 3: If you opt to move forward, schedule a call with your author to discuss what to write in your first chapter. At the end of that call, schedule a call for the following week.
Step 4: Write your first chapter before the next call with your author (use the lessons and guidance that’s in the instructional emails you begin receiving!)
Step 5: Rinse and repeat for the remaining nine weeks, speaking to your author every week before you work on that week’s chapter.
And voila! Within 10 weeks, you’ll have your completed first draft.
*Your author will not be editing but providing you with one-on-one guidance as you work on your book*
We're here to tell you that you CAN. If On The Road and The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie were written in less than a month, you can do this in three. The time-consuming part of writing a book (and trust us, we speak from experience) is veering off in the wrong direction because you don't have any guidance or structure as well as not having accountability. We're here to combat both. If it means waking up an hour earlier every day or writing on your phone will you wait for carpool, YOU CAN DO THIS.
You absolutely can—or you can hire an editor. While we strongly recommend hiring an editor and perhaps even doing a rewrite (and offer this service), you are under no obligation to hire us (in fact, we can recommend a bunch of experienced freelance editors).
