Hey, so far, I hope I've been able to answer some of your questions just by showing you the kinds of books I've written, how long it took me to write them, what went into writing them, as well as some of the books I've done for clients. Well, maybe you've got some new questions. No worries. Let's see if I can answer them ... REALLY FAST!

Q1. How do you write books really fast?

It depends, what's the topic and what's the format of the book going to be? Some books get written faster than others. I do have a saying, which is, books get done like a baby coming out of the womb. You can't force it to finish (or come out), you just have to let it. I tell my clients (and myself), write fast, push yourself, but don't be hard on yourself. It also helps if you can type fast and have my Google Doc to use as a guide for finishing your book quickly.

Q2. Can you learn to write a book really fast?

Yes, you can! If you don't type fast, well, that might be a problem, but there's still hope. For example, if you use my Google Doc book template as a guide for finishing your book quickly, then you're off to a great start.

Q3. Who do you use to print your books, Bart?

I go through KDP.com, which is a part of Amazon.com. I love them because their book proofs don't cost me $30 per book. I can order as many "proofs" as I want based on the cost to print my book; which typically runs $2.50 - $4.50 per book; based on page count. I also can upload unlimited manuscript changes without being charged a fee. This helps me to proof my book online, using their digital proofer, see mistakes I might have to fix, and then fix such mistakes before I go to print. What's more, I can drop ship books to anyone, anywhere in the world, and all I pay is the cost to print my books, which usually runs, again, $2.50 - $4.50. Cost is usually based on a book's page count.

Q4. Do I keep all the royalties from the sale of my book(s) when I work with you, Bart?

Absolutely! You keep 100%. I don't take any monies from you except when I provide my book publishing and other business and coaching services, naturally. You will simply log into your KDP.com account and check your royalties. Royalties get paid to you via direct deposit once every 30 days.

Q5. Will I be able to order copies of my own book on my own whenever I want?

Absolutely! Simply log into your KDP.com account, find your book on the bookshelf, choose ORDER AUTHOR COPIES and order as many as you like and ship them anywhere you need to.

Q6. What's the process to get my book to the printer and sell on Amazon.com?

Basically, I look at your manuscript, and if it's ready for editing, that will take a few days (maybe a week). Then, I'll lay out the interior of your book, which can take a week for most books. I'll then design your book cover, which usually takes a day. That said, we create an account at KDP.com so you can sell on Amazon.com. After adding your title to your KDP account, I'll upload the cover and inside pages of your book via PDF. From there, we wait for Amazon to bless your files. If they don't and we need to make corrections, I make the corrections and resubmit. Once approved, you're live on Amazon.com and start your marketing campaign.

Q7. What services do you provide to help me with my book?

You can see the services I provide here. Basically, anything related to creating your book and your author platform.

Q8. What are your fees?

It depends, how much have you got? I'm kidding! Truth is, it depends on how much work is involved at my end to bring your book project to life and cross the printing finish line. Such as, does it need editing, a cover, page layout on the inside of your book, do you need coaching, etc. Prices do range between $500 and $2,500 on average. Another factor involved would be my availability. While I love helping everyone, I can't help ... everyone. So, it does eventually rely on those who are ready with their manuscripts, payment and the like. Lastly, to get started, a deposit is required, which usually starts at $500 to get started on your book project.

Q9. Can you write a book for me, Bart? (Ghostwriting Services)

That depends on what you'd like your book to be written about. I specialize in non-fiction, self-help, if that gives you an idea of what I like to write about. If you'd like me to write a book for you, let's discuss the matter, topics and other parameters, such as availability, pricing, etc., that go into me writing a book for you.

Q10. How do I get started working with you?

Basically, contact me online, fill in the contact form, tell me about your book project and I'll call you to discuss matters. Together, we'll decide how we'll go forward. I like to work fast, so be ready!

So, was I able to answer most of your questions? If so, great! What's next for you? If not, then what questions do you have? Contact me and let's get them answered.
