“One of the most important things I did to turn my dream of writing my book into a reality was hire Justin. Thank goodness I had the good sense to hire him!”Meredith Thomas
Justin offers numerous opportunities and structure to work together. It can be as easy as editing an already written project, or architecting and building a book from beginning to end. Depending on your current situation and need, Justin works to create a gameplan and opportunity to reach and achieve your goals.
Mattie Stepanek said, “Unity is strength. When there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” Book collaboration is a two-fold process that involves working together to conceptualize the book and then providing a detailed developmental edit after the book has been written.
When working to conceptualize the book, Justin will first conduct a series of phone calls and direct interviews to collaboratively identify the big ideas and concepts that will eventually form the crucial message and purpose of your book. Once these big ideas are in place, Justin will collaborate with you to create an outline and table of contents to provide structure to each of the book’s chapters. After conceptualizing the purpose and idea behind your book, Justin will help you layout the chapters and create the content for the book.
After architecting the first draft of your book, the next step is a solid, in-depth developmental edit. The developmental edit focuses on content, strength of the message, readability, implementation, and understandability. It is the moment when the light switch is flipped and everything becomes clear. This involves careful review to ensure the content is tight and direct, as well as an accurate representation of your overall message and goals.
Justin will take the message from the depths of your heart and soul, and ensure it comes across loud and clear in a meaningful and impactful manner. At the end of the collaboration process, you will have the best possible version of your book in hand.
