Writing a book is one of the most exciting, nerve wracking and daunting things a person can do. You pour all your blood, sweat, tears, joys and fears into a story until you feel it is absolutely perfect.
You type that last period and then what? How do you publish a book? Where do you start? That’s where I come in. I am an author coach.
When I published my first book, Lithium Dreams and Melancholy Sunrise almost three years ago, I had no idea what I was doing. I had to learn the process of publishing myself. It was scary and daunting at first but I wound up publishing two more books the same year.
It hasn’t been a perfect path and I have made some mistakes along the way but none of those were things I couldn’t fix. There is always something new to learn.
I don’t want you to struggle or make the mistakes I have. I don’t want you to start on your own and give up because it’s too daunting. I want you to achieve your publishing goals and I want to help you along the way.
What is an author coach?
An author coach is someone who takes you from finished manuscript to published book. A coach will walk you step by step through the process of what you need to do before publication and help you set up and publish your book through sites like Createspace, Amazon, and Smashwords.
Your coach is your cheerleader and will help you learn from their own mistakes.
How Can I Help You?
I love working with my clients and learning about them and their books. As your author coach I will:
- Get to know you,the story behind your book, and your goals.
- Walk you through the process of what you need to do before publication (finding a cover, someone to do interior layout, finding an illustrator,etc.)
- Show you where to buy your own ISBN’s (This is very important.)
- Walk you through the process of setting up your book for publication on Createspace, Amazon (Kindle), Smashwords, and Ingramspark.
Why do I need an author coach?
There is a ton of information out there and it can get very confusing. By using an author coach, you will save a lot of time and headache in the publishing process and it will go much smoother than figuring it out on your own. You can hire me as an author coach, just contact me.
