Have You Always Wanted to Write a Book and Don’t Know Where to Start?

Have you always wanted to write a book but don’t know where to start?

Have you written a book and are wondering what now? Having trouble finishing that book or even getting it started? Are you having trouble finding a literary agent? A publisher? Have no idea how it all works? Need help with marketing that book? Are you a business owner or professional interested in stepping up your credibility, client list, sales? Being the author of a book can do that for you, instantly. Let’s have a conversation, I may be able to help.

Helping others achieve the dream of holding their own book in their hands is my passion.

Holding your own published book in your hand is a major life accomplishment. Seeing your own published book on a bookstore shelf is electrifying and being asked to sign your own published book for a reader is humbling and absolutely incredible!

So what exactly is a book/author coach?

A book coach is knowledgeable in all things writing, publishing and marketing. The most important thing your coach can offer is to provide you with the tools you need to feel confident and motivated to create the best and most successful manuscript possible, to make the best publishing decisions and to guide you in making the most effective marketing choices for you and your book.

My services are affordable and packages are available from as little as one session to sessions throughout the entire process.

Ghostwriting services are also available.

I enjoy the challenge of ghostwriting. It’s rewarding to be able to see into another person’s soul and to capture exactly what they wanted to say!

Writing Wednesday The PWC…

 

Writing Wednesday

On Wednesdays I like to share information, stuff I learned on my journey of writing, being published and marketing two (almost 3) books!

Writing Conferences

It’s that exciting time of year again, the time when writers with a dream and writers that are living the dream come together to network, share and most importantly to learn from and support each other. Many years ago when I was dreaming of becoming a writer I attended the Philadelphia Writers Conference. Back then word processors were the ‘new thing.’

#WritingWednesday/Press Releases…

WritingWednesday

Wednesday is the day I share what I have learned on my journey to publication, marketing and publishing again. If you have any questions please feel free to leave them in the comments and I will do my best to answer them. If you have any tips please share them with us…

Public Relations/ Press Releases

Just when you thought writing the book was the hard part you were told you had to write a synopsis, then an outline, a proposal and the hardest of all a query letter. You finish all of those and breathe a big sigh of release only to find out you need to write marketing, advertising and PR plans and those include writing press releases and media pitches.
