Book coaching

I’ve written six books and self-published four of them.

I’ve also designed and typeset 10 books, including my own. (Yes, I know. I have a very weird and unique skill set.)

I know what an ISBN is, and whether you need one. I know how to navigate the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) and Ingram Spark platforms. I know what kind of launch you’re going to be able to do based on your following, connections and timelines.

In short, I’m familiar with every step of the book writing and publishing process from idea conception right through to publication.

There are two ways I can coach you through the writing of your book:

1. On an as-needed basis

If you’re across most things in the writing/publishing process but want someone you can quickly email or call for help if you’re stuck, this is the option for you.

Cost: $350 for the first hour, $150/hr thereafter

2. On a fixed retainer

If you’d like someone on hand to work through the whole process with you one-on-one, this is the most cost-effective option. The retainer is payable up front, gives you access to me for up to one year, and includes:

  • An initial consultation about your book idea to ensure the book you’re writing can deliver a firm outcome for you.
  • Provision of deadlines and ongoing accountability.
  • Ongoing access to everything I know about book writing, publishing and design.

Cost: $2500

Current availability

Devastatingly, I lost my husband Anthony in a tragic accident in January 2019. For this reason, I am currently only available for manuscript reads and structural edits. I hope to be available for book coaching, developmental edits and ghostwriting again in 2020.
