A Book Coach will help you clarify the vision for your finished book, your target market, publishing goals, and help you take action toward the completion of those goals.
Book Coaching is a relatively new profession in the industry. With the rise in popularity of self-publishing, writers are no longer nurtured through the traditional publishing system which was established to ensure the highest quality of published books. Self-published authors gather together their own team of writing and publishing professionals that assist them throughout the writing and publishing process. Even traditional publishers are expected to be active in establishing their own platform, marketing etc. When pursuing traditional publishing, a Book Coach helps you develop your book proposal, query letter and sample chapters. A Book Coach fills the gap no longer provided by traditional publishers due to the rise of self-publishing and the harder-than-ever-to-get traditional publishing contract.
In the writing process, A Book Coach could be likened to a developmental editor that works with the writer throughout the creation of the book instead of providing a written report on the completed draft. A Book Coach will help you clarify the vision for your book, your target market and publishing goals, and help you take action toward the completion of those goals.
A Book Coach is a coach in every sense of the word – a project manager, mentor, and cheerleader through the process of turning your idea into a manuscript, and your polished manuscript into a professional book.
A Book Coach helps you get clear on your book’s purpose, guides you through the creation process, and enables you to get results. A Book Coach helps writers stop talking about writing their book and helps them actually write it. Not just a book, but your best book. A book that has meaning, value, and a reason for being in the world. A book that’s polished and professional with a message that isn’t lost in a messy, rambling narrative.
A Book Coach knows your ‘why,’ holds the vision for your book, and guides you through each creative phase to achieve a book that you will be proud of. A book that has the potential to impact and change lives, and make a difference in the world.
A Book Coach helps you choose the professionals needed to publish your book at a high standard. You retain full ownership and control of your book, and keep all your royalties. A Book Coach helps you understand the process and make decisions that are right for you and your vision for your published book.
Many businesses, from start-ups to million-dollar companies, have business coaches. A good coach is a valuable resource, helping visualise your dream, create time-based action plans, and keep you accountable.
