Writing a book is an incredible adventure that affords you many exciting opportunities. It can help you create meaningful, transformative experiences for your audience, establish yourself as an authority in your field, build an international community that is invested in your work, expand your professional network, participate in amazing projects and collaborations, and create multiple streams of income.
But writing a book well requires a lot of decision making. You have to make decisions about the topic and the aspects of that topic you will address in your book. You have to make decisions about the content, how to structure and organize your ideas. You have to make decisions about publishing, how to design the book that contains your ideas. And you have to make decisions about how and where to market and sell your book so that you can successfully get it into your ideal readers’ hands.
In all those decisions, the aim is to create a cohesive process that aligns with your intent for the book, supports and amplifies its ideas, and resonates with the readers for whom you wrote it. That cohesion is created when you start with clarity about the focus and audience of your book and use that clarity to direct every decision you make in your book’s journey.
rketing it and building an invested community around your work. With a solid plan in place, you are positioned to write your best book and build an audience that is excited about your ideas as you write. I prepare you for where you’re going after your book is complete.
In planning, we will
Clarify your idea and nail down a solid concept for your book
(These three things will guide everything else you do in your book journey.)
Completing a book is not a difficult thing to do. It can be tedious. You may not feel like doing it that day. But it is not difficult. Just stick to the “show-up” plan and write. And do it again, and again.
In writing, we will develop a customized writing plan that fits your life and puts you on a solid path to successfully complete your book.
Self-publishing can be simple and inexpensive. But you have to know what to do because it’s even easier to make costly mistakes.
In self-publishing, I will advise you through the self-publishing process and ensure you produce a book you can be proud of.
The key to marketing your book is understanding that people are not buying your book. They’re buying the ideas, experiences, solutions, and transformations inside your book. The book is just the container. In marketing, I will coach you in locating and gathering readers through a customized marketing plan that helps you connect with the communities that are hungry for your ideas.
I do not believe in waiting for readers to find you. We will find them before they ever know you exist. I will help you show up where they are and invite them to join you in your world.
I look forward to working with you and helping you light up the world with your ideas!
