Why You Should Start Your Book Now

The best time to start was yesterday. The second-best time is now.

Writing a book is a big undertaking; in fact, it may even feel too big. And you’re busy. You have a lot going on. Adding a book to the mix would be too much right now—you can do it later. It’s just not the right time. Or is it?

If you have time for lunch, you have time to write a book, since we require only one hour a week for an interview.


—Luke Palder, CEO

Writing a book yourself indeed requires a ton of time. But hiring a professional ghostwriting team to expertly tell your story doesn’t. All you need to do is sit down for interviews (generally an hour-long interview per week for 12 weeks), scheduled at your convenience. Crafting a ghostwritten book takes a lot less time than you’d think. And the best time to start, no matter which of our bespoke ghostwriting packages you opt for, is now. Why? Simply put…

Because no one is promised tomorrow, and we’d like to help you get your knowledge, wisdom, memories, and family history down on paper so that you can reap the benefits ASAP.

For a friends and family memoir, those benefits include

  • Immortality through the written word

  • Knowing your story—in your voice—will live on forever

  • A chance to reflect on a life well-built

  • A sense of pride and security in knowing that your family and personal history will always be remembered

For a public-facing memoir, self-help book, or business book, those benefits include

  • Being known as a leading expert in your field

  • Greater credibility (you’ll literally have written the book on your topic)

  • Higher-priced consulting gigs

  • Higher speaking fees and more prestigious speaking engagements

  • Higher client conversion rates

  • An easier and cheaper time acquiring leads

  • Positioning yourself for inclusion on corporate boards

Start simple: transcripts now, book later.

Big projects are daunting, but big projects are really just a collection of small, easily achievable projects. If completing a ghostwritten book sounds overwhelming at the moment, you can start by having us guide you through the creation of transcripts that lay out the themes of your story and identify the most interesting anecdotes to include. All that requires from you is a few sessions of meeting with our interviewers and talking about your life or topic. We especially recommend this when people are older or ill; getting the info on paper with transcripts ASAP is key. We can always turn that info into a book later, but your family history, corporate history, and wisdom should make it out of your head and onto paper ASAP, just in case.

Quick, simple, stress-free interviews on your schedule.

Your ghostwriter (and the rest of our book publishing team) will write the entire book themselves; all you need to do is talk. As stated, in most cases, this translates to one interview per week for 12 weeks, although we can adjust the schedule to fit your needs. If you prefer, we can cover almost everything in a single big interview in one day. We can meet on your schedule (even for clients in Japan, we’ve made the timezones work!), allowing you to seamlessly integrate your book interviews into your busy schedule.

You don’t need to prepare for the interviews. 

Our interviewers (most of whom are from Stanford’s graduate sociology program) are some of the best in the world; they know all the right questions to ask to identify the most important themes and narratives for your story. We listen carefully and dig deeper into pertinent or intriguing details that can help weave a more cohesive, engaging book. All you need to do is show up and be open, and when the interview is over, you can get right back to your busy schedule.

No one lives forever, but legacies can.

Life is unpredictable. No one truly knows what will happen tomorrow, let alone in 5, 10, 20 years. It’s easy to put your book off until next week, next month, next year… until, before you know it, decades have passed. If something matters to you, take the time you know you have—the present, right now—and attend to it. The best time to tell your story is now, and if you wait too long, it may be too late.

Work with our ghostwriters for high-quality books with minimal time commitment.

Our ghostwriters are experienced professionals who have worked with clients from all walks of life. They’re sensitive to your schedule, working efficiently to save you time while producing the highest-quality book possible. They know how to tell your story, in your voice, without disrupting all the events and appointments you have planned.

We offer several highly customizable ghostwriting packages, so you can select the service that best fits you, your vision, and your schedule. Then, except for a few simple (and fun) interviews, just go about your normal life—and in the meantime, we’ll weave your stories into a cohesive and engaging narrative.
