Crafting Books Out of Your Stories and Ideas

I can help you bring your story, ideas, and voice to the page

Do you have an idea for a book but don’t have the time or expertise to write it? I can help you make your book a reality. As a writer I work closely with you to capture your unique voice, your personal stories, and the nuances of your work. Your name appears on the byline, but I do the heavy lifting.

Joel Pitney | President & Founder of Launch My Book

My Experience

I have worked as a professional writer in many contexts for over a decade. My background includes journalism, film & TV development, guest articles, marketing copy, social media, and non-fiction books. I have ghostwritten 3 published books, including two bestsellers, consulted on several others, and had articles published in Fast Company, Inc, The Huffington Post, Mind Body Green, Entrepreneur, and more. I write primarily non-fiction, with a specialty in the business, leadership, personal development, mind-body-spirit, and narrative non-fiction genres.

My Services


Whether you’re planning a series of articles that will eventually lead to a book, or just need to get your voice out there, I can help craft a series of articles that you can have published in print, online, or on your own platform.


Are you writing a book, but need help with the structure, tone, and overall concept? I can work in a consulting role to help you shape your writing into a full length book.

Manuscript Creation

Do you need me to write your book for you? I do in-depth research of your work and conduct a series of interviews with you, then conceive and write a full, publish-ready manuscript in your voice.

Joel was outstanding in capturing and conveying the nuances of our thinking with his clear and engaging writing. In addition to being adept with language and structure, Joel is also a great thought partner. He added to our work by helping tease out and sharpen many of its elements. Along the way, he was highly professional and totally seamless to work with.
