AUTHORSHIP

Define your publishing path, create an outstanding proposal, and write your book.

Make your non-fiction book idea a reality in this exclusive one-on-one program designed to accelerate your book development and writing progress, keep you accountable, and equip you with a success mindset along the way.

THE ONLY REGRET MOST AUTHORS HAVE ABOUT WRITING A BOOK IS NOT WRITING IT SOONER.

 

Why you need book development coaching with me:

  • Traditional publisher, self-publishing or hybrid? I’ll guide you through your options and IP considerations.

  • I’ll help you plan your progress and keep you accountable so your book is a priority.

  • Together we’ll define your target readership and decide on core messaging.

  • I’ll help you strategize your book proposal to hook industry and reader attention.

  • I’ll provide feedback as you write so your messaging resonates with your target readers.

  • Every writer needs support and encouragement to overcome obstacles and keep going.

  • To complete a book project you need a success and commitment mindset, and I’ll coach you to achieve that!

Why am I offering Authorship coaching?

Plenty of people say they want to write a book, but it takes effort and dedication to make it happen. There are a million other work and life priorities that need your attention.

 

I wrote and published my first book by writing every Saturday. It took commitment but the pages added up, and soon I had a full manuscript, an agent and a book deal.

 

For 25 years I’ve worked as an author, editor, story director, and university creative writing instructor as well as a coach, and what writers need most is the tenacity and courage to see their visions through. My passion is helping writers and leaders like you to develop books and realize publishing dreams. Together we’re creating change.

 

I’m here to support and guide you so that book idea becomes a reality.
