Kickoff / Interview / Vision / Outline
Our first goal is to drive the project towards a blueprint. Much like the construction of a home, your book needs a strong blueprint to ensure that we all know what we are building together.
Interviews / Intro / Chapters 1 & 2
Once the blueprint has been approved, the team moves into the process of capturing the voice of the book as it writes the introduction and first chapters.
Interviews / Write / Edit [Repeat]
We consider the blueprint to be the book’s roadmap and the voice to be the vehicle, so once we have both in hand we hit the open road and move into chapter writing at a more feverish pace.
Full Manuscript Review
Compile / Edit / Layer
When a first full draft has been completed, the team dives back into the manuscript to layer with more depth.
Revisions / Final Details / Proofreading
Then the book is line edited multiple times before moving into proofreading and final approval.
Your house is built. It’s got the solid foundation, strong structure, the inner workings that give it depth, and everything you need to make the house into a home...except the decorations (packaging and publishing).
Not sure you know what you stand for?
We're confident that you do. Most of us don't have easy access to how to articulate our purpose, so we've developed this exercise to bypass your intellect and pull the language from your guts.
