Writing Books/question


I really want to write a book, I just dont know how to put it together. Is there anyone out that could help me put it together and they could recieve a percentage for helping me?

Hi Michelle,

CONGRATS on deciding to create your book!  

As far as finding a writer to help you write the book, you can place an ad on writing job posting boards stating that you are looking for a ghost writer or someone to co-write a book for you.  Elance, Media Bistro, Journalism Jobs, Sunoasis, etc. are sites you could place an ad on.  Or you could read books on how to write a novel or non-fiction book, attend a few writer's conferences, etc. and write the book yourself.

Whatever you decide, I wish you the best!
