Book Writing — Our Signature Process

The RTC Signature Book Writing Process is not dictated by page or word counts. Instead, our expert editors help you unearth the book you are meant to write. We’re more than ghostwriters. We are developmental editors, book writing coaches, and manuscript masterminds. Our end-to-end book writing process is adaptable for your schedule, your goals, and your budget.

A Book Writing Blueprint

Much like the construction of a home, your book needs a strong blueprint to ensure that we all know what we’re building together.

Voice In Book Writing

Once the blueprint has been approved, the team moves into the book writing process of capturing the voice of the book as it writes the introduction and first chapters.

Chapter Development in Book Writing

Once you approve your blueprint, your team begins to capture the voice of the book by writing the introduction and first chapters based on interviews and supplemental information you provide. When you feel your team has firmly grasped your voice and tone, a faster chapter development timeline unfolds. You can expect interviews, writing, and editing to take place based on an agreed upon schedule.

Full Manuscript Review in the Book Writing Process

When a first full draft has been completed, the book editing team dives back into the manuscript to layer with more depth. With a complete revision in hand, it is time to pepper in the final details before sending the manuscript off to proofreading.

The entrepreneurs today who are reinventing the way we travel, shop, work, or treat pests (like my company) must possess one critical skill that separates them from the status quo—they must tell better stories. Storytelling is critical to rewriting the future we want to live in. That’s what made Round Table Companies rise to the top when writing my first book—they’re storytellers of the highest order.
