Translation of "Please write your book"

Duolingo gives me this as the answer.

"Por favor escribe tu libro"

why isn't it "escribes" which is the conjugation for "you"

I think it's the imperative mood of escribir - in other words it is a direct command. There's a decent description here: http://spanish.about.com/cs/verbs/g/imperativegl.htm

It might be because the conjugation for el/ella is used for commands, like "clean." = "limpia."
