Let's Help You Write Your Next Book!

You've got the idea...

The outline is set and the launch is part of your overall business strategy to grow your voice and influence as an industry leader... Now it's just a matter of finding the time to write the book. And then format it. And then build all the pieces of launching it out into the world.

Don't Panic! We've got you covered.

There's more to writing a book than putting words on the page, but our team knows the ins and outs of publishing.

The Words

Writing is just one piece of turning your idea into a book. There's brainstorming, outlining, writing, copyediting, proofreading... Proofreading again.

Wouldn't it be nice to have someone who knows and understands your voice, and who builds off your outline in the background while you continue your daily work instead of having to pause it?

The Push

And then, just when you have all the commas in the correct place and all the apostrophes styled in accordance with your preferred writing manual, now you have to format it to eBook.

And once you format it to eBook, you have to tell the world about it. Sounds like even more time is being taken away for you to focus on what you do best.

That's where we come in!

Don't Panic was founded on the idea that we do what we do best so YOU can do what YOU do best... And, if you're reading this, we're going to assume writing and publishing isn't your cup of tea (or it is, but you just really don't have the time).

You know you have something important to say to add to your industry. You know you can help folks achieve their goals with your expertise, and you know you want to get that information out there in the format of a book.

And we want to help you do that. Here's how:

Your Voice

We work with you to create a voice guide that helps our VA create copy that sounds like you.


Editing is the higher-level work of making sure the words you're using are the best to convey your ideas. It improves the overall quality of your writing and expression.


We make sure your words are formatted correctly on any platform.

Your Idea

Based on your outline, we write the full copy of your idea. We start with a test chapter, and once we have the OK from you... It's off to the races!


Proofreading comes after editing, when you're ready for the nitty-gritty, line-by-line, word-by-word correction.

Launch Plan

Need to build some announcements or general language about your launch? We got you!

Your Schedule

Know your launch date? Awesome! We work with your plan to hit those milestones. Unsure of when you want to unleash your idea into the world? Not a problem! We can help you create a launch schedule that works for you.

Continuity & Readability

This piece is all about flow. Do your ideas flow together, or are they disparate thoughts floating around central idea? In either case, presenting them in a connected way is key to readibility.

Graphics & Digital Assets

We can even add on some graphic work, should you need any illustrations inside your book or any digital assets for launch.

We get asked a couple of common questions about this service. If you have more questions, visit our FAQ or reach out.

How is my virtual assistant chosen?

First we have a conversation with you where we’ll find out more about the kind of help you need, your communication style, and some logistical details (like your time zone and what times of day you usually hold meetings). Then we run those details through our database of virtual assistants to find the best possible match for your needs. We generally find 2-3 really good matches that have the skills, the availability, and a compatible work style. We reach out to the best match to offer them the gig, giving them a few details about our conversation with you and the scope of work involved. If the first option declines, we’ll move down the list. Once we've found the perfect fit, we’ll schedule a kickoff call to introduce you to one another and get the work started.

How should I communicate with my assistant?

Right away, we’ll connect you with your assistant via email and schedule a kickoff call to get the conversation going. This time can be spent however you’d like to use it. Some people work on getting acquainted and setting up logins, tool access, etc., while others get straight to the point by assigning tasks and expectations. After that, we’ll let you two determine how best to communicate. We only ask that you respect the assistant’s time by giving them a 24-hour window during business days to reply.
