1277 – Write a Book Without Writing a Word with Paperback Expert’s Michael DeLon

In this episode of the Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge speaks with the President and Founder of Paperback Expert, Michael DeLon.

Paperback Expert helps small business owners publish books and use their book to grow their business. Michael explains that they use a process of writing by the client and writer talking to one another so the writer can gather relevant data for their book. Editing is an extremely important aspect of book publishing as it can be the determining factor on if someone will read it or not. Michael explains that self publishers often do not edit properly, therefore their book may not be as inviting as it could be through a publisher. He explains that books are signifiers of authority figures or experts. 

Paperback Expert does the majority of the work excluding the writing process as it is spoken from the client to be written. Michael explains how you can add a large amount of content through marketing books to an audience as it conveys your views. Following up on possible leads that were not followed through is important as it could help you fix mistakes or gain that lead back. Michael explains how differentiating yourself from the masses helps create better feedback and success.
