Are you ready to get your book onto the page... and into people’s lives?

Over three or six months, I can show you how to write, structure, publish and profit from your book.

You’ve got a message to share. You may even have a draft partway done, but it just doesn’t seem to be coming along.  Or you can imagine the book’s theme, but not know where to start. If this is your situation, then consider a writing coach.

A coach is there to help guide your progress. First, we plan the book out (outlining) and then the coach helps you with your written tone, voice, book structure, and keeping to the theme.

The creation of a book can aid your career or help to increase your prices and position you at a higher level than competitors!

If needed, I can include self-publishing coaching (info on formatting, printing, eBooks, library supply, legalities, and ISBNs) at the end of this program for a reduced rate.

With a penchant for educating others simply and logically, I will guide you so that yours becomes a helpful and powerful book.

Featured Books

Book writing coaching helps you:

  • Develop your singular theme:  a topic we gauge an interest in. This is crucial when it comes time to promote your book to a niche audience.
  • Review or assist your outline and match it with your target market.
  • Keep your written voice consistent.
  • Find references that are useful for the reader and not a copyright headache.
  • Learning the parts of a book that must be managed, e.g. foreword or preface, about the author, even endorsements.

  • Plan activities before launch, including writing a book blurb and author bio. Assistance to get your selling points across.
  • With editing advice, learn how to critique your work and kick some of your repeated writer habits (we all have them!)
  • Optionally, research and proposal work to do before submission to a publisher
  • Keep you on track towards your deadline, which we set at the start.

Writing Coaching Process

As your writing coach, I would spend around 3-4 hours every month to read and offer editing suggestions that move you forward with your book. I can also call via Skype. Allow 10-12 hours for your writing, at a minimum. Some writers use software for planning, but we keep it simple with two choices of outlining method.

After the book coaching is completed, we will have developed your book enough to move on to copy editing stage, if you have integrated all the suggestions well. Copy editing looks for small grammatical errors, subheading mistakes, spelling and punctuation.
