When you get ready to climb a mountain or hike a new trail, you get a guide to help you prepare for, or even make, the journey. Writing and self-publishing your book doesn't have to be any different.
What is book coaching?
Book coaching means having someone with experience mentor you as you go through the writing and / or publishing process. If you need to complete your manuscript, your coach helps you stay on track with your word count goals and encourages you to stay motivated and get the job done (much like a personal trainer). If you are looking for help with publishing your completed manuscript, your book coach walks you through each step of the editing and publishing process and holds you accountable for completing each of those tasks.
Do I need a book coach?
Not if you feel savvy enough to navigate the self-publishing process on your own. If you meet or beat your word count goals every week and understand the various platforms available for publishing and how to use them, having a book coach might just be a bit of reassurance that you're not in this journey alone.
For writers who struggle with sticking to a writing schedule or procrastinate on the tasks that will get their book on the market, hiring a book coach is a great way to boost their literary productivity so that they can reach their goals.
How much does book coaching cost?
That is going to depend on the type of coaching you need (full consultation or just accountability checks) and the frequency of contact needed. Submit your order today and we'll get back to you with a quote.
Do I have to pay my book coaching fees up front?
Book coaching fees can be paid monthly or more frequently. For example, if you want infrequent accountability checks that may total $50 per month, you could pay $300 for six months of coaching and not have to concern yourself with payments any further. But, you could also pay $50 at the beginning of each month if that works better for your budget.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept PayPal, Venmo, CashApp, money orders, checks, credit cards, debit cards, and cash (if you're in or near Atlanta, Georgia). Invoices are tracked via PayPal no matter which payment method you choose to use.
Can I get book coaching if I'm in the middle of writing or publishing a book?
Absolutely. Your book coach will need to simply be informed of what you've already accomplished, your current project status, and your goals for the future.
Do you provide coaching for novels only?
Coaching can be purchased for most kinds of written pieces, from dissertations to poetry books to self-help books. Submit your order today and we can discuss the specifics and make sure that book coaching is appropriate for you and your specific project.
Do you offer other educational services?
Yes. We have classes available for various aspects of the writing and publishing process. You can access them under the 'Events' tab at the top of the website.
