To help you best decide if this project is a good fit for you, please read the following ideals: The book should be well written in native English and be thoroughly edited. You must have personal experience with the subject. The information presented must be current and engaging, and not simply a broad, generic treatment of the subject matter. See if you can include an angle or specialized pocket of knowledge that will set this book apart from the competition. The book must offer simple, expert solutions to common problems that people have with that subject. They should be well-informed solutions that are not common knowledge and not something a reader could find with a quick Google search. The book should follow the attached template to save us both formatting work later. It should have an introduction, 3-7 concise chapters, and a short thank you or final thoughts chapter to wrap up at the end. A large portion of the content should be about tips, techniques for how to solve the...

I own a boutique consulting firm where we ghostwrite books and book proposals for business and thought leaders. Our subject matter areas mainly center around the following: How-to and self-help books in business, personal development, or the health, fitness, medical, nutrition space, and memoir.
