Why do you need a book writing coach?
Let's say you have a great idea for a book. It may be a book to support your business - to position yourself as an authority in your field. You may want to write a novel, or a memoir as a legacy for your family, or a self-help book. Whatever your topic or genre, and no matter how important this book is to you, you're struggling! With our book coaching & writing programs, struggle no more!
As a book writing coach, I help you pull your book together - at whatever stage of your writing journey you happen to be. Many aspiring writers who work with me are at the very beginning of their journey.
Writers generally struggle for these reasons:
- Failing to start: 'I don't know how to start'
- Clarity around the subject: 'I don't know what topic to write about'
- Lack of confidence: 'I've never written a book before & I don't know if I can'
- Lack of accountability: 'I've tried many times to write a book but I lose momentum.'

I really liked the group dynamic, listening to others reading and to their stories, and getting to know them. It was a great group. I found all the resource material and the other information imparted in the sessions really helpful. What I learned in the sessions has helped me to advance to a point now that I’m confident to continue to write at a level where I’m enjoying my writing. It’s not hard work anymore.
