Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly does Scribe do?

Scribe helps people write, publish, and market their books. We were founded in 2014 by a 4x New York Times Bestselling author, and have worked on over 1,100 books, including some major bestselling books in that time (which you can see here).

Our two most popular services are Guided Author, which is $12k, and Scribe Professional, which is $36k.

We can also publish your finished manuscript.

Does Scribe work with anyone?

No, we cannot just work with anyone. We typically reject about 20-30% of authors who want to work with us. There are two criteria we use to decide which authors we’ll work with:

  1. Does the author know the subject matter of their book deeply enough to write a book about it? Our process works very well, but only if the author actually knows what they’re talking about.
  2. Does the author have a clear understanding of how books work, and a reasonable expectation for ROI? This means there needs to be a purpose behind writing the book.

That’s why the first step in our process is a qualification process. If the result you’re hoping for is unrealistic or impossible, we can’t work with you, because there’s no way for us to win. Even if we do a great job and we nail the book, you might still be upset because you didn’t reach a goal that was impossible to begin with.

Is there anyone who should not work with Scribe?

Yes, definitely. Here is a partial list of the types of people who are not a good fit for our process:

  1. Fiction writers. Our process only works for non-fiction.
  2. You don’t know your topic well. If you want a book on sales, for example, but don’t know anything about sales, then we can’t help you. You’ll need to find a ghostwriter.
  3. You aren’t sure how a book can help you.
  4. You have no idea at all why you want to write a book, what it will say, or what goals you’ll achieve by publishing it, then we are not a fit. Our process requires an investment—of both your money and your effort—so you should have an idea of why you are doing it.
Can you work in other languages?

No, not right now.

Do you do fiction books?

No, we do non-fiction only, for now. We are trying to develop a fiction service, but we can’t promise it will come to fruition.

How do I decide between the $15k (Guided Author) and $36k (Scribe Professional) options?

There are two main questions to ask yourself:

  1. Do you like sitting down and writing? Do you like typing, and having your hands on the keyboard?
  2. Do you have enough time to write this yourself?

Generally speaking, assume that Guided Author ($15k) requires an hour a day for a year (yes, you can do it faster), and that Scribe Professional ($36k) requires 1.5 hours a week for 7 months.

If the answer to both questions is yes—you like writing and you have time—then Guided Author is probably the right option.

If the answer to both questions is no—you don’t like writing and you don’t have time—then Scribe Professional is probably the right option.

The difficulty comes if the answer to #1 is yes (you do like writing) but the answer to #2 is no (you don’t have time). Then you’ll have to decide what gives: do you make time for writing, or do you value your time too much, and want us to do the typing for you?

I saw you had a $100k+ option (Scribe Elite Ghostwriting). What is that?

That option is not right for most authors. It’s intended for those authors who require the very best Scribe possible, they need the Scribe to come to them, and they want a fully custom program that includes all marketing and promotion.

Almost all authors are better off with Guided Author ($15k) or Scribe Professional ($36k).

What’s the difference between the $15k (Guided Author) and $36k (Scribe Professional) options?

The main difference is how much time it takes you, and who actually writes out the content of the book.

In the $15k option (which we call Guided Author), you’ll use our full process, but you will do the writing and typing yourself (with our guidance and support the entire way, described here). This option begins with a two day workshop, and then usually requires you to spend about an hour of writing a day for 6+ months.

In the $36k option (which we call Scribe Professional), all you have to do is get on the phone, and talk about what you already know. We handle all the typing and writing for you, but the words and ideas and voice are still entirely yours. This option only requires about 1.5 hours on the phone per week.
