Every now and then, I get asked this question: “What do people want written?” And I usually answer that people come to us for a lot of biographies and fiction manuscripts. But is that the most accurate answer?
I decided to do some number-crunching. And I cam up with three sets of data. First, here are the types of services people seek…
As you can see, biographies are the most popular project people seek.¬† Everybody has a story to tell.¬† Yes, most “biographies” are in fact autobiographies.
There are a lot of people who come to us with manuscripts – including websites and marketing materials, but mostly books – to edit.¬† These include biographies, as well as every other genre.
The three other popular genres are business manuscripts, online writing and fiction manuscripts.
Breaking it down a different way, 46 percent of people come looking for some form of book to be written.¬† Twenty percent of people seek some form of editing and 12 percent seek copy for use online.¬† Everything else is pretty minor.
Breaking down the books into the various types, you can see just how important biographies are – how many people have a story to tell.
If you have a story to tell or a book you want to help promote your business or career, we’ll be happy to help you.
