Ultimate Coaching Package

The path to publication is often confusing and sometimes daunting.

So many choices. So much to learn. About writing a book. About making it good. About getting into the hands of your readers. Should you self-publish? Try to find an agent and a traditional editor? What about book marketing and promotion?

This full-service package is for writers who would like hands-on shepherding along that path. It includes individual coaching in everything you need to finish your book and launch your writing career, from laying a solid foundation for your book to getting it into the hands of a loyal readership.

Because of the individual attention required by this course, I can only offer this package to a few people each year. If you’d like to apply, just send an email to [email protected], tell me a little about yourself and your writing, and ask to arrange a free call. Once I receive your application, we’ll arrange a call to discuss your individual needs and see if this program is a good fit for both of us. If so, we’ll set some goals and get started.

The package includes:

  • Up to 52 one-hour coaching calls—encouragement, accountability, work on specific skills, work through a stuck spot, work toward manuscript milestones…whatever will best help you achieve your goal.
  • Texts and emails as needed (up to once daily) for support, encouragement, and accountability
