Non-fiction and fiction coaching & mentoring
By phone/Skype (worldwide) or face-to-face (Brisbane)
You own a business. It is successful and yet you know something is missing – your book.
Or, you have a story to tell, about your work, your family, your achievements, or yourself.
Or, you’re writing fiction, a thriller, a romance, or something in-between.
You’re a decision maker, value yourself, are committed to what you do, and you’re driven and passionate about your work and interests. You know your book will get your message or story out there.
You can write and you need to know where and how to start, how to structure your book, and when to write.
You realise that the best support you can have is from someone who has been there, will help you with the right type of guidance when you need it, get you focussed, and who understands every part of the process.
Your book will promote your business, give you additional credibility, tell your story, and you know it’s time to write it NOW.
You’re looking for a book coach who has extensive writing experience, having both written and coached many, many books to completion. You’re looking for a coach who is passionate about his work, committed to his authors, reliable, empathetic, motivating, supportive, and very knowledgeable. That’s me. I’ve been there many times as an author. I know what it’s like and I know the value of having someone there at the beginning to help you start your book on the right path. I’m there at the beginning to help you structure your book, to keep an eye on marketability, to offer ideas and creative approaches to getting your book written and published.
Helping you structure your book before you begin
You’re an expert in your field. You have the knowledge and the wisdom. You have a message to get across. You have much to teach and you can see many different ways to approach your subject but, which is best?
I help you to stand back and look at your subject through your readers’ eyes. I help you to structure your book to suit their needs. And I help you to structure your book in a way that makes it highly marketable – so it sells.
When a potential reader picks up your book and flicks through it (or checks out sample pages on your website), it is the structure that can make or break your sale. During those few seconds, your reader needs to see how easy your book is to use and how it can help her. She will look up a couple of references in your index, check out your contents page, and scan bullet lists, breakout boxes and page layout. What will she decide?
The more complex your subject, the more attention you need to place on getting the structure right. I help you achieve this.
I also know how it feels to hold the first copy of your finished book and to get positive feedback from readers. It’s amazing.
Are you ready to begin?
Mentoring is a 3 hour one-to-one consultation with me. (In two sessions if by phone or Skype; in one session if meeting in Brisbane). This equips you with the structure and outline of your book plus a writing schedule and outline of other goals. And, on top of that, all those burning questions will be answered. What if you need more help? What happens when you’ve finished your book? How do you get it published? What is the process?
