Here are a couple other approaches you can consider.

As mentioned in other responses, the best way depends on your preference
for structuring your Org files. I prefer to keep project-specific files
separate from my general agenda files. If I capture something in my
agenda files that I want to refile to a non-agenda file, I use a few
functions [1] for temporarily setting `org-refile-targets'.

If you are repeatedly refiling to certain targets (but still want to
keep them separate from you're global refiling targets), you can define
a function that overrides `org-refile-targets' and then bind it to a

Another solution, if you are only refiling between files within your
book chapter directory, is to use a .dir-locals.el file in your book
directory and set `org-refile-targets' there.

  ((org-mode . ((org-refile-targets . (... project settings ...)))))
