Hi! My name is Athena Daniels and I’m the Chief Creative Officer and founder of Athena Daniels Academy, a one-stop-shop designed to offer assistance to writers and authors no matter where they are along their writing and publishing journey.

I’m an international bestselling and multi-award-winning author, professionally trained Book Coach, Self-Publishing Coach, Creativity Coach, and Certified Life Coach.

I run my business as an author and coach around the responsibilities that come with being a mother to three and a day job. If you think you don’t have time, confidence or ability to write your book, I’d love to share my secrets with you!


After publishing six books, five independently and one traditionally, and learning far too many steps along the way the hard way, it is now my passion to help writers navigate the ever-changing publishing landscape and avoid pitfalls and costly mistakes.

As a professionally trained Book Coach, I bring my experience as an international bestselling and multi-award winning author to aspiring authors through flexible one-to-one coaching packages as well as courses, retreats and workshops that aim to inspire and empower writers for success in publishing.

What is a Book Coach?

A Book Coach meets you where you are on your writing and publishing journey and helps you clarify and navigate the following steps. Book coaches can assist anywhere from the very first idea for a book, right through to publication and marketing of your work. A book coach will help you understand what your book’s message is and then help you fulfil that promise to the reader.

Book Coaches bring their experience and knowledge of the publishing industry to you. They do not do it for you, but they help you understand your choices. They cheer your success and keep you accountable, by your side, supporting you throughout the whole process.

When you hire a book coach, you won’t lose control of your work. A book coach won’t take over your project. Instead, they help you remain in complete control by helping you understand every step in the process which ensures that your book remains authentically yours, written in your voice, and is the very best it can be.


When do you need a book coach?

When you’re ready to stop treating your writing as a hobby, or dream you’ll never achieve, and “go pro.” A book coach can step in during any stage from the first idea to advising you on marketing your published novel.

You’ve got something to say, that’s hopefully why you want to publish a book. But what good is your message if it isn’t presented professionally and conveyed clearly? The reader will lose interest if the first chapter doesn’t appear to fulfil the book’s promise and set it aside. If your cover and blurb aren’t created correctly, a reader might not pick up or even find your book among countless others in the online space.

A book should be written and created with your ideal reader in mind if you want your message to reach its intended audience. A book coach helps you get crystal clear about what your book is, and who it’s for. It’s hard to publish and promote a book if you’re unclear about what the essence of your book is and who needs to read it.


Do any of the following describe where you are right now?

  • Are you stuck or spending hours writing in circles?
  • Do you need clarity on your idea or purpose of your book? You have so many ideas about what you want to write, but what will make an excellent book that your audience will want to read?
  • Who is your ideal reader? Who is your message for? Getting clear on who you are writing for helps you create a book that has direction and purpose. You’re not writing a diary; there’s a reason your book needs to be in the world. What is it? And how do you make sure your message is conveyed clearly?
  • Do you want to write a book that has the best chance of being read by a wider audience than your family and friends? A book coach can help you do that.
  • Are you pursuing publishing through a traditional publisher? A book coach can help you prepare a book proposal agents and publishers want to read.
  • Are you planning to self-publish your book? You need to think like a traditional publisher and treat Self-Publishing as a business. A book coach will help you research the market, understand the importance of editing, cover design, formatting, and avoid costly pitfalls.

  • Is it your goal to pursue traditional publishing? A book coach can help you write a book proposal publishers and agents will want to read.

  • Want to become an authorpreneur and take advantage of the range of opportunities and doors that becoming a published author can open for you? A book coach can show you everything you need to be your own independent publisher and pursuing your goals as an authorpreneur.

You won’t write your book by wishing, hoping and waiting until you have enough time. You will write your book by taking action.

A Book Coach holds the vision of your finished book and keeps you inspired and accountable while you achieve it. A Book Coach helps you get results!
