Are you ready to be an author?
To not just to plan your book or write your book, but to publish your book and officially be an author? 

I'm sure you already know that being an author gives you respect and credibility. It puts you in the realm of an "expert", an authority. 

A book opens doors for you - including the ability to reach and impact a far greater number of people with your work. It can also open doors for you with regard to media opportunities and speaking engagements.

Writing a book enables you to share your message with the world and to create a positive impact in the lives of your readers.

What is that message you want to share?

Is it the story of something you overcame? Is it a message about your creative project, your business or your brand?

Your voice and your message are unique - and are so valuable and needed in this world.

Life creates through us, and if you are feeling that calling to be an author and to enrich your own life and the lives of others through your work and your words, believe me life desires to create through YOU!

I would love to be in your corner, supporting you in this process, every step of the way!

Let me introduce you to:
"THE AUTHOR" PROGRAM

The expanded "Your Book Blueprint" involves a 2 hour 1:1 session with me and a 60 minute follow up call where we immerse ourselves in creating your book blueprint - the outline for your book."Your Book Blueprint" involves a 2 hour 1:1 session with me (and a 30 minute check in call) where we immerse ourselves in creating your book blueprint - the outline for your book.

We identify the core message of your book - your mission statement, focus on your story and experience and how to best to incorporate all of this into your book. We focus on your ideal reader and what you want him/her to take away from reading your book and we outline possible book structures that will best support your message.

We also discuss how you can best support yourself by creating a writing time plan and schedule you can commit to - and stick to!

... and much more.

Ultimately, "Your Book Blueprint" empowers you with a clear and complete plan of action for writing your book.

book coaching - 9.png
 

Book Coaching is absolutely invaluable for a writer.

Over the 9 months of "The Author" Program, we will have a Coaching Call every two weeks.
The focus of each call is primarily determined by where you are and what you need at each stage of your process.

Some areas of focus can be:

- What you’ve written and worked on since our previous call

- How this writing period was for you, what has been working well and what any areas you feel a little stuck in so we can give them some attention to get them flowing better

- We explore why a particular section of writing may feel problematic, teasing out any deeper understanding or wisdom that may lie within.

- Your writing plan for the period of time between our present call and our next call including what areas you are going to focus on, what you intend to write and the ‘why’ behind all of this. This pre-paving work gets your brain and your energy lined up and pre-processing what is coming next and can serve to make the actual writing part much easier.
 

When you have completed the first draft stage of your book, we can focus with more depth on areas such as securing BETA readers for your book and getting the best feedback from them, building your author platform, how to generate publicity for your book through getting articles published and so on.

Having a full 9 months of book coaching means that you have continuous accountability and support. I will be in your corner the whole time - there to help you navigate any resistance, troubleshoot any tricky areas and guide you through the process of becoming an author.

Throughout the "Idea to First Draft" Program, you'll have email access to me so you can get some feedback or advice or a quick answer, rather than having to wait for our next coaching call.

You may also email me problematic sections of writing in advance of our calls if you wish.

#4

 
series of edits.png
 

I do a full Developmental edit of your book before your BETA testing, a Copy edit afterwards and a final Line Edit/Proofread of your work.

With the Developmental Edit I will pay attention to multiple areas. For example:

- I will edit with your reader in mind and with their ease of understanding as paramount. 

- I will be paying attention to the development of your ideas and to where a piece may need a little more detail or may need trimming.  

- I will be paying attention to the element of story in your book, editing with the delicate balance of how much is enough in mind.

- I will focus on ensuring that your authentic voice is a through-line in your book and that your reader can feel really connected with you. 

Your Copy Edit will happen after your BETA testers have read your book. At this stage:

- I will read through your manuscript making sure all adjustments resulting from the BETA test process have been seamlessly integrated.

I will be paying more attention to grammar, syntax and overall accuracy at this stage.

Finally, I will do a Line Edit/Proofread, meaning:

- I carefully focus on line by line in a more technical way and on making sure there is nothing else that needs to be corrected throughout your manuscript.

When your book is created - or on it's way there - I will arrange for the design of complete, original cover art for your book.

We'll discuss colors, fonts and design and will spend some time researching and envisioning exactly what design is right for your book. 

I will have my designers create mock ups for you to choose from and they will tweak the design according to your critiques so you are happy with your brand new book cover.

We will also create the copy for your book cover - including your bio and back cover book summary.

A message for business owners: 

Writing a book, be that a non-fiction book or a self-help book or a memoir, is a modern world "business card". It establishes you as an authority, is a versatile promotional tool, opens the door for increased exposure for you - media opportunities, potential collaborations with influencers...

* and it's a legitimate business expense and even a tax write-off in many countries. *

Think of it like this: you invest in advertising, why not invest in writing a book? it's far more long-lasting and potentially further reaching advertisement. 

Not to mention the absolutely invaluable transformation writing a book can be for you, personally, and the invaluable transformation it can provide for your ideal clients.
