My Book-Building Workshop is ideal for authors starting from scratch on all types of non-fiction, but is perfect for business books, history, cookery, self-help and mind/body/spirit. This one-to-one workshop runs for one day, and by the end you will have a detailed blueprint for your book, together with a sensible writing plan for getting the job done in the time you have available.

During the day we will discuss:

  • What you want to achieve by writing your book
  • Who your reader is
  • How your book will help them
  • The Unique Selling Point of the message you want to get across

We then plan:

  • The content of each chapter of your book
  • What material to include and what to leave out
  • How you can include marketing tactics such as seeding in your writing
  • How long your book will be and how long it will take you to write it

By the end of the day you will have:

  • A title
  • A subtitle
  • A blurb
  • The beginning and the end
  • A detailed chapter-by-chapter plan for each section of the book, with word counts and plans for illustrations, if relevant
  • My unique One-Page-a-Day writing schedule that will enable you to fit your writing into your working week

Fees: £650

I recently took Sophie’s One Day Book Building Workshop, which was fantastic and exactly what I hoped it would be. During the workshop, I went from having a few ideas for a book to having the title, subtitle, each chapter planned out and even a writing schedule. I would highly recommend this workshop if you are planning on writing a book. Thanks Sophie!
