Elite Book Coaching Package – 5 to 6 Months

One-on-one all-inclusive Book Coaching Experience  Nonfiction 

Who is this package for?

People who are passionate about writing a book and don’t want to be embarrassed about the quality of the finished product. With the availability of self-publishing, it’s not the actual publishing of the book that is hard – that’s just a process of uploading. It’s the quality of the product that is important.

What happens when your book is out in the world? What will your readers think? Is your writing clear? Is your message? Will your intended reader want to read past the first few pages? There’s a powerful reason that your book needs to be in the world – but who will read it if the message is buried in a rambling storyline or is an unstructured, unreadable mess?

Is writing your best book a learnable skill? Absolutely! You can spend hours or even years researching the craft of writing, reading book after book on how to write nonfiction, clarify your message, correctly structure your chapters, your TOC’s, research your target market, how to write a book proposal, your jacket copy… the list goes on!

Or you can work with a Book Coach, get advise specific to your book and goals, and write a book you’ll be proud to announce to the world that you wrote!

  • Choose this package if you’d like the support and expertise of a Book Coach to work with you during the creation of the draft of your manuscript. You will work one-on-one with your coach through a proven and tested process where you receive editorial feedback on your fortnightly submissions in addition to fortnightly coaching calls, this is the guaranteed way to not only get your book written, but make it the highest possible standard you can write.
  • This package is for writers and business owners who are serious about their book making maximum impact in the world. It is for writers who are seeing Traditional Publishing, or want to Independently Publish at a high, Traditional Publishing standard.
  • This is for people who have a strong desire to make a difference, who want to inspire, educate and make a difference in the world through the power of their story.

The Elite Nonfiction Book Coaching Package is my signature one-on-one, personal coaching program and involves working with me over the course of five to six months.

Who should choose this package?

  • Nonfiction writers seeking traditional publishing – you’ll develop a polished book proposal with pitch support (query letter and guidance on agent list), several clean sample chapters, and my guidance and plan for pitching agents and publishers.
  • Nonfiction writers pursuing hybrid or Self-Publishing – you will have a solid foundation for your book and review of up to 225 pages of your manuscript draft (review of additional pages is available for an additional fee) as well as advice and strategy on your next steps in publishing your book.

“A book is a dream you hold in your hand.” Neil Gaiman

We start our journey together by getting clarity on your book idea and its reason for being in the world. We then create a draft overview of your manuscript using the powerful Blueprint-for-a-Book system and action plan that outlines the process, step by step.

I then coach you throughout each step of the process as you undertake the work necessary to write the components of your book proposal and sample chapters.

  • If you are seeking traditional publishing, we will work on your query, and guidance on an agent list and pitching strategy.
  • If you have chosen to self-publish your book, you will end up with a 225-plus-page draft of your manuscript and a clear action plan on what your next steps are.

The Elite Book Coaching Package is an investment not only in the book you are currently working on, but every future book you want to write as well.
