Authors: Writing, publishing and promoting your book

Writing a book is a great way to get your thoughts down on paper and share them with the world. You can assert your expertise and gain respect as a recognised expert in your field.

The most popular reason for writing a book is for the recognition or ‘fame’. Many people want to make money with their book. You should be aware that it is quite difficult to make a living with income from book sales alone. You would need to sell over 50,000 copies of your book every year to do that, and there are only 1,000 titles in the world achieve that. 

However, once you are a published author, Peek can help you leverage that book to open doors to new business, higher fees and many other opportunities such as speaking engagements, interviews and joint ventures. We can also create an electronic version of your book (ebook) for people to download, an audio version to use for podcasting and even a video version if you want. 

Using Peek as a coach

Coaching has become accepted ways to improve performance in many areas of our lives to achieve better outcomes in less time than we would without help. Many people talk about writing a book but few ever even start and of those that do start, so many give up somewhere along the line and the book is never finished. That's where Peek can help.

There are many ways we can add value, from guiding you on style and format, to content, dealing with challenges like writers block, procrastination and indecision, all the way through to helping you understand your market, how you should reach that market and how to get the best return on your efforts.

How much commitment does it take?

If you can carve out an hour a day, or 8-10 hours a week, you will be able to complete your book in 90 days with us. 95% of all clients who follow the programme methodology complete their books within the 90 days. Your book will take between 50 and 100 hours of focused time, so the more time you can spend on it, the sooner you will finish. If you cannot find or make an hour a day or 8-10 hours a week, then we would suggest you wait to start your book project until you can make that commitment.
