Book Coaching

You want to write an amazing book. We can help.

Nicole and Rebecca coach writers who struggle to craft their inner magic into words. They transform budding writers into dynamic professionals, and wild ideas into powerful books.

The world is hungry for stories like yours and we want to help bring it to life. 

You know you have what it takes to be a writer.

  • Your ideas refuse to be wrangled. Your notes overflow with unruly concepts and your outlines take on minds of their own.
  • Your skills don’t stand up to the pressure of drafting. You’ve read the how-to books, listened to the podcasts, and joined the forums, but once you get drafting, it’s like you’re a newbie all over again.
  • You’re overwhelmed by the writing industry. Indie pub versus traditional. Writing to market versus writing for self. Pantsing versus plotting. And don’t even start with subgenres.
  • You have trouble completing a manuscript. Things just seem to fall apart halfway through. As if you didn’t spend hours and hours planning it out.
  • Your self-doubt is crushing. You’re terrified nobody will like your book.

Good news! Fixing those problems is what we do.

  • We provide thorough guidance. No flailing about trying to figure out where your time is best spent or what to do next. We guide you all the way through from beginning to end.
  • We help you understand the slippery things. How do you know which ideas are viable? What’s the best way to untangle a plot knot? How do you make successive scenes fall like dominoes?
  • We give chapter-by-chapter feedback. You’ll stay on track, be confident in the way forward, and get valuable insight into your strengths and weaknesses.
  • We teach you skills you can use again and again. These benefits don’t disappear just because you wrote “The End.” They’ll serve you for years to come as you write book after book.
  • We get you to a finished draft. There won’t be any doubt in your mind that you’re not only fully capable of writing a good story, but ready to face the world of publishing.
