Outline a book in a day

I’VE HELPED HUNDREDS OF AUTHORS—

from total beginners to New York Times Bestsellers—to outline, write, edit and publish their books. There are several ways I can support authors, but one of the most popular ways I can help is with my process I call “Book in a Day” since we literally go from book idea to to book outline in a single 8-hour day together.

I meet people all the time who want to write a book but don’t know where to start

WHEN I WORK WITH AUTHORS, THEY ALMOST ALWAYS TELL ME THE SAME FEW THINGS…

“I’m worried writing this book will be a waste of time…”

“What if no one ever reads it…?”

“Someone else has already written this and done it better than I could…”

“I want to write but I have no idea where to start…”

After writing 12 books—10 for other people and 2 of my own—I’ve developed a process that not only streamlines the process, it maximizes your writing time, makes you feel more confident in the direction of your book while you are writing it, and takes into account the exact person you are writing to so that you never have to worry about it being a waste of time. This process shaved more than a year off the book-writing process for me, and has done the same for dozens of my clients.
Anyone who wants to write a book, I send them to Ally...”
— DONALD MILLER, NYT Bestselling author of Blue Like Jazz, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years and Scary Close

How it works

Share

You share your ideas with me and we work together to choose the one that’s best for you.

Create

We spend an entire day brainstorming and organizing all of your content into a book outline.

Write

You leave with the biggest part of your proposal document and a roadmap for writing your entire book.

Book in a day is for you if:

  • You know you need to write a book but you don’t know where to start
  • You aren’t sure about writing a book, but people keep telling you, “you need to write a book!”
  • You’re a business owner, leader or influencer who hasn’t secured your ideas in a book yet (it’s time)
  • You have an idea that won’t leave you alone (it’s keeping you up at night, or waking you up in the morning)
  • You have several ideas for books you could write but aren’t sure which one to choose first
  • You spend a lot of time writing but aren’t sure if any of it will ever fit in your book
  • You’re worried you’re going to waste a bunch of time writing material you won’t use or need
  • You’re tired of putting this off and you’re ready to get started writing confidently today!
