Who am I and how can I help you?

Hi, I’m Lynda Goldman.

I specialize in writing and publishing health and wellness books.

Natural products copywriter: I’ve been a natural products copywriter for 15 years, working with alternative health practitioners and supplement companies to write everything from web copy to their e-books.

Author of 40 books: I’ve been published by 3 major publishers, with many best-sellers.

I’ve also self-published several books which have been translated into more than 20 languages, written Kindle bestsellers, and ghostwritten many books for clients.

Through this process, I’ve honed my system for writing books quickly and skillfully.

Quality and readability are crucial to writing a book that will benefit your readers, and that will sell.

And it may actually take less time than you think, once you have the road map.

As you can guess, I have quite a few tricks up my sleeve to share with you, to make the process easy and yes….fun!

I want to help you.

Please use this roadmap as a guide to getting your book written.

Then let me know how you did by answering the questions at the end.

I wish you every success in ushering your book into the world!
