Book Coaching

Want to Write A Book?


83% of Americans say they feel they have a book inside them. Many talk about writing a book, few begin. Of those few who begin, not many finish. For those who finish, sharing their work can be a daunting task. Taking a writing class, attending workshops, joining organizations, and finding writing and critique groups are all examples of what you can do to begin, or continue, your journey of writing a book. There are many steps to take from beginning to end. It’s a process that we learn about, along with learning about ourselves and our creative process. Some writers go it alone and figure it out through trial and error. Some writers prefer to have a guide who has walked the path to offer them advice, be a source of support, get them started, get them unstuck, and share the map that lays out steps to complete the artistic endeavor of writing and publishing a book.
