Author Coaching

“If you don’t turn your life into a story, you just become a part of someone else’s story.” ― Terry Pratchett

Got a book idea but no idea how to start, keep going, or get published? You’re not alone – in fact, apparently 90% of people believe they’ve ‘got a book’ in them and yet only 3% of them go on to write and publish theirs.

So welcome to a very special and small group of people taking the first steps to becoming a published author. There a few steps besides the writing so we work on one at a time, breaking things down into manageable actions you can take with confidence. Check out some of my clients’ feedback in the video at the bottom of this page.

I’ve been doing this long enough to have learned more than a few secrets. From writing, editing, all the publication tasks, marketing, getting press, and keeping book sales coming in…I’ve been there, done that, and drank quite a few glasses of wine to get through the tougher days!

Author coaching can take place in person in central Scotland and via Skype for global clients (further afield in-person can be arranged)

You have three options below to choose from to suit your circumstances.

One-to-One Coaching

60mins where we chat about your book idea, goals, and expectations. We’ll establish what you need and how I can help in advance so that we’re making full use of the time on the call.

Face-to-face business coaching in Glasgow, Lanarkshire, and surrounding areas, and further afield can be negotiated either with travel costs or held over Skype or telephone.

1 Session, 60mins:

We focus on one area that will get you started (or restarted) such as writing techniques, confidence, or marketing. You choose and I’ll share some powerful tips and techniques with you so you can take action

3-Session Package, 60mins each

We focus on up to four areas to get you started (or restarted). We may focus on carving out time to write, writing techniques, motivation, a marketing strategy, or other areas. You decide and I’ll share some powerful tips and techniques with you so you can take action.

You’ll have your own personal author coach and cheerleader all-in-one supporting, guiding, and helping your book develop. Perfect whether you are a brand new novelist, a business owner ready to share your expertise, or want to write a self-help book to help others.
