What Is Book Coaching?
A book coach (sometimes called an author coach or writing coach) is someone who guides a writer through the writing process. This is a one-on-one partnership that really digs into why you’re writing this particular book and works alongside you to help you write the best book you can.
Why Hire a Book Coach?
You’re an author, or you want the confidence to call yourself one. I can help you make progress in your project and feel confident in your writing journey.
As your book coach, my role is to help you develop your storytelling skills, make progress in your writing, and feel confident in yourself and your skills.
Our coaching relationship will be customized to your needs. Through video calls and emails you’ll get things like:
- Tools and exercises to help you plan or outline your book
- A project manager and developmental editor working with you chapter by chapter as you draft your book
- One on one help making and carrying out a revision plan
- Feedback on your writing — what’s working and suggestions to improve
- Resources and writing exercises to build your skills
- Opportunities to ask questions and brainstorm with someone
- Encouragement and celebrations of your accomplishments
*At this time I only work with women writing romance or women’s fiction/beach reads.
Let’s Create Your Custom Book Coaching Package
A book coaching package with me is designed to help you set and meet your writing goals, answer your questions, and help you build your writing toolkit. After a free 20-minute introductory call to see which of the below buckets your project fits in, I’ll put together a custom coaching program designed around your writing needs and goals.
Finish That Novel
You’ve started a draft but just can’t seem to make progress on it. In a Finish Your Novel Coaching Package, we’ll make a plan and keep you accountable to finish that novel.
Finish Your Novel Coaching Packages will be available starting in Spring 2023.
Revise That Novel
You’ve got a messy first draft and don’t know what to do with it or where to start making it into something great. Revision can be a lot more intimidating than drafting. In a Revise Your Novel Coaching Package, we’ll make a plan and keep you accountable to transform that first draft into a rad, swoony book.
Revise Your Novel Coaching Packages will be available starting in Spring 2023.
Single-serve Coaching Call
Do you have a writing or revision question that you want to chat about but you’re not ready to commit to a full coaching package? That’s okay!
I offer 45-minute video calls to discuss your writing project or questions you have about the writing process, editing, or publishing. I’ll email you after our call with a few resources too.
Single-serve coaching calls do not include direct feedback on your manuscript.
