As an author, what steps or procedure do you follow when writing a book? Where do you content your content from?
I've only written two books. Basically, I followed the template from the publisher I worked with -- they asked for a proposal and had a strict format for making one. In essence, it involved pitching the book, and working through a detailed table of contents. I found it a useful process, it made me figure out what I really wanted to write and why.
