Getting some help

Getting some help

I have a lot of ideas for books – picture books, chapter books, novels and non fiction. Many of my non fiction book ideas are based on my blogs. I tend to use my blogs as a bit of a brain dump and the posts aren’t necessarily in any sort of logical order… For the most part, I have no idea where to start to get these in order so they will make a good and useful book.

With this in mind, I’ve been on the hunt for some help with this process.

It’s interesting lately that a number of Virtual Assistants are setting themselves up to help authors and speakers get books done, although there aren’t many that will help to get ideas in order. With me, most of the content is written as a first draft in the form of blog posts, I just need someone to turn them into a logical order so I can edit them and add extra content. I think part of my problem is that I’m too close to the project and am struggling to see this all objectively.

Recently, I have come across a couple of people who may be able to help with this.

So, watch this space for updates to how I’m going with this. You never know, my first non fiction book may be published sooner than we all think!

  1. Good for you, Melissa!

  2. This is the kind of work that I love doing, Melissa, so if you’re still looking for someone, give me a yell.

  3. Good luck with it – I have always turned away from non fiction as the thought of all the research puts me off – I am so glad my study days are over! But who knows – I’ve been researching for blog posts and quite enjoying it. But I still admire you, good on you!

      I’ve been blogging since pre-2006, so there are a lot of words there & research already done 🙂 It’s the putting it into order that I am struggling with!

      You never know Emily, you may find you have a book or two in your blog posts.
