Your book isn't going to write itself.
You could use a guide:
a writing coach or two.
We are book-writing coaches who guide you step-by-step to succeed at writing your book.
Writing a book is a very personal process. Very often, you are delving deep into your truth and your most intimate thoughts.
We'd love to connect with you and determine if we are good fit to help you write your book.
Your burning desire to write your book, to tell your story, to leave your legacy has grown steadily as you've matured. Years keep zooming by, and still you've not written your book. At this rate, you may die with your book inside you...
You're not a writer, but you've got a proven track record in all your life endeavors: family, career, lifestyle... Why can't you just sit down and write? It's your story, after all!
Chances are, you're stuck at square one. And you're not going to budge from there until you get help.
You've never written a book, so how do you know what to do first, second, third... What if you had a coaching team helping you brainstorm not just how to lay out your book, but ways to re-configure your life so it's more conducive to writing?
At the rate of thinking, "just write the book!" -- life will always come before the book. What if you had a coaching team helping you keep your promise to yourself by breaking down your writing into bite-sized bits so you don't feel like you're eating an elephant?
Does the very idea of professional hand-holding and assistance as you delve into writerly realms such as the mindset of writing, the mechanics of writing, and building forward momentum give you a boost of confidence that your book is entirely, wholly do-able?
Are You Ready?
Imagine hearing yourself think:
I did it!
My blocks went away as I focused on my book week after week.
I’ve expressed myself with clarity and impact.
My book, just a constant thought for months and years, is now a reality.
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel...and it's my book!
Are you talking about your book but not writing it?
How can you take bold action and get it done?
Book Coaches provide the solution.
Meet Someone Who's Stood in Your Shoes:
He's a Certified Health Coach, Diabetes Educator and a Culinary Chef.
LaRue is on a mission to write a book that's a wake-up call empowering people to take action now and save ourselves and our loved ones from diabetes.
LaRue lost his mother to the horrific disease.
LaRue writes articles and gives talks. But those magazines, journals, and stages have a built-in, captive audience.
How does he talk to the masses? How does he find his authentic, compassionate voice in his book? How does he take the one-on-one passion he gives when coaching to the pages of his book so they leap up and get the attention of the very people he wants to save?
He did exactly what you should do: he took action and he found a guide.
Says LaRue: “Who knew going into this, working with two capable coaches, I would be so blessed. It’s really what’s bringing my book to life.”
Now meet four people who are not writers...
But who are now authors.
From left: Herman Williams, MD; Lin Day; Dennis W. Archer; and Steve D. Bullock.
Herman's Story: He dropped dead of a cardiac arrest at 31 during his orthopedic residency in Seattle. He was revived, but his dream of becoming a surgeon remained dead. He had to reinvent himself. Decades later, he did just that by inventing The Kindness Scale. His burning desire to share his story culminated in CLEAR! Living the Life You Didn't Dream Of.
Lin's Story: Lin's book came to her as if through divine guidance. She had to tell her story. She had to share her journey. Her life was a journey of seeking help in many places. Therapists, diets, spiritual quests. Nothing worked... Until something did. The flood gates opened for Lin, and her story poured forth.
Dennis' Story: Dennis W. Archer's list of accomplishments could fill a book. As a former Michigan Supreme Court Justice, former two-term mayor of Detroit, former president of the American Bar Association, and recipient of 24 honorary doctorates, much had been written about him. But he wanted to tell his story from his perspective...for an audience of two: his grandsons. His book is his story.
Steve's Story: Steve, born in the segregated South, one of 22 children of a sharecropper, his family and community instilled the importance of education from a young age. Throughout Steve's life, Steve methodically developed four pillars for a good life. His book tells his story, how he did it and succeeded at overcoming odds, and it lays a foundation as a handbook for others.
These four want you to know:
If they did, you can do it, too!
So, how does this work?
When you work with Book Coaches, you are making a commitment to your book.
You have a problem: your interest in writing a book has become a burning desire!
You need a guide. You need someone who knows how to write books, knows how to help others write books, knows how to teach writing, and who is going to be at your side throughout the process.
When you work with Book Coaches, we are making a commitment to you and your book.
How Long is this Going to Take?
