Book Coaching Packages:

Writing a book is hard, working with a book coach makes it easier.  You may need help formulating your idea, your method or plan, structuring your book or need feedback and accountability as you write and revise.

Do you:

  • Have a plan or method with proven results but are unsure how to conceptualize, structure it and go from idea to finished manuscript?

  • You feel like you’re not making progress and are struggling with procrastination?

  • Feel stuck after you’ve written the first few chapters because they’re not working?  Or you’ve received feedback from your agent or publisher that you need to up your game?  

  • Know that you’ve got a solid plan or method, a clear structure but need help with a book proposal to pitch your idea to agents and publishers and marketplace guidance? 

Let me help you develop a plan to meet your specific goals. You can enter this process anywhere along the way, depending on where you are in your journey to write your best book, what your goals are and what type of help you need.

All Monthly Coaching Packages Include:

  • Two deadlines per month to submit elements of your non-fiction work in progress, for example, your core idea, plan or method, rough drafts for review or up to 24 pages of your manuscript. I’ll provide a summary letter and editorial comments in Track Changes (Microsoft Word).

  • Two 30-minute phone/ZOOM calls a month (after you’ve submitted content or pages for review) to discuss your progress, provide feedback and plan next steps.

  • E-mail support (within reason)

  • Editorial guidance, support, feedback, and accountability to support your progress through roadblocks like procrastination to THE END.

I’ll send you a Client Get-to-Know-You form so I can learn more about you, your book idea, any issues, and problems with your work in progress (WIP) and your goals. I’d also like to see a sample of the content you’ve created so far or an element of your WIP to give me a clearer idea of how I can help you move forward.

Part ONE: The Roadmap

  • Define your idea, method, or plan so it’s clear, concise and takes readers on a transformational journey.

  • Create a structure and narrative design that serves your mission and the reader’s needs.  

  • Decide on the book’s tone and voice.

  • Get guidance, feedback, and inspiration so that your foundation is solid, and you can move from idea to manuscript with confidence.

  • Gain a better understanding of the publishing marketplace and where your book fits in.

  • Examples of book proposals that sold to publishers.

  • Regular deadlines so that you can manage your time along with accountability and support.

DISCLAIMER: I can’t guarantee that your book proposal will result in an offer of representation, a publishing contract, or sales but it will represent your idea, method or plan and your expertise in the best way possible. What I will do is support you in writing your best book.
