the Book

Go behind-the-scenes of Write a Must-Read and watch AJ Harper craft a transformational book.

In Write a Must-Read, I share the same process I teach in my 14-week course, Top Three Book Workshop. To give you more of a workshop experience, I created Behind the Book. Think of it as the “director’s cut” of my book.

I came up with the idea to create Behind the Book because my students learn better when I show them how to refine and edit their work. In private coaching sessions and in our group Live Edits, I share my screen and walk them through my feedback.

Here you will find videos that walk you through how I developed, wrote, and edited Write a Must-Read. I hope this helps you gain a deeper understanding of the lessons and frameworks in my book.
