Should be 'I would like to write a book'.   Otherwise you would write 'I like to write books.'  Or 'I do like writing books.'

Adding the word "do" to the sentence is not necessary. It is not wrong either. It is a choice.

"I like writing books" is a declarative sentence. It's okay grammatically.

"I do like writing books" could be a response to someone saying that he/she doesn't like writing books. It could also be a response to somone questioning the speaker if he/she likes to write books.

"I do like writing books" could also be said because the speaker is so excited about writing books.

All of these can be said. It just depends on HOW you wish to say it. If you say "I do like to write a book," then it would be best said after someone says something in regards to books. When you use 'do,' you sort of confirm something.

For example:

Johnnie: Do you like to write books!

Me: Actually, I do like to write books! (as if being said in wonder and amazement)

 

Or. . .

Johnnie: You hate writing books, right?

Me: Well, no. Actually, I do like to write! (said in defiance or objection)
