Are you ready to get your book written… and into people’s lives? Then consider a Non-Fiction Book Writing Coach.
Through book writing coaching, I can show you how to write, structure, self-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. You’re stuck. Or you know the book’s theme, but don’t know where to start with the writing and structuring. If this applies, then consider a book writing coach / mentor.
A mentor is someone who has written many books before, researched target reader-fit, found what works and so can help guide your progress. Constant feedback guides you to become a stronger writer.
First, we help with a way to plan the book (called ‘outlining’). But nothing complicated! Then, after seeing your writing, your book writing coach gives feedback on voice, language used, book structure, and keeping to the agreed theme.
Since your publishing and writing mentor is also an editor, this has its benefits. With feedback, you’ll soon understand how to tighten up your writing and choose the best analogies, allusions, case studies, quotes, and references.
Included in the full package are our self-publishing lessons (info on formatting, distribution, eBooks, costs, library supply, legalities, and ISBNs) — plus more customised advice.
You’ll get special access codes to online training in Book Creation Success Club. This self-publishing academy can empower you with knowledge to retain your publishing independence. Don’t let the assistant self-publishing companies have their big profits!
So who is Jennifer Lancaster?
I’ve been an editor of many different styles of books in the non-fiction space, including health, success, self-development, psychology. I’ve written books about money/finance, marketing, and freelancing.
Trained in desktop publishing, I have also done complex book typesetting and uploaded many books for print on demand, Kindle Direct, and Smashwords.
Reading: I have read more than 200 self-help, health books, marketing, writing, and personal finance books. Observing what works in other books helps me to advise authors.
Over the years, I studied communications and worked in copywriting and digital marketing, which adds to the useful background.
With a penchant for educating others, I will guide you so that yours becomes a helpful and powerful book.
What You’ll Learn During Coaching Sessions
Book writing mentoring helps you:

- Assist with your book outline to get it into uniform shape
- Keep your written voice consistent, something that is a bugbear of many writers
- Find references that are useful for the reader
- Learning the parts of a book that must be managed, e.g. foreword, preface, about the author, and endorsements
- Learn how to critique your work and kick some of your unhelpful writer patterns (we all have them!)
- Keep you on track towards your deadline, which we set at the start.

Publishing and Writing Coaching Process
Before every one-to-one session, I will read your work of around 10 A4 pages and offer editing suggestions that move you forward with your book. We will schedule a fortnightly or monthly Zoom call to discuss any blocks, recent writing, the angle and language that’s right for your target reader.
ACHIEVABLE MILESTONES. Our modifiable Publishing Schedule is planned to keep you on track to the next 10,000 words or other milestone, while allowing time for editing and reflection. This helps with planning the time allocated to write and thinking ahead.
PLANNING. We keep it simple, with an easy outlining method and advice. Anyone can do this, so don’t worry.
You can even transcribe much of your book, as long as you keep references used.
After the book development stage is complete and you have integrated our suggestions, the manuscript will be ready for copy editing stage. Many common structural problems and repetitions will have been cleared away, leaving just a professional copy editing round to go. Your book will also be long enough to meet market expectations, but not too wordy, and can be priced accordingly.
