Take your readers on a  heroine's journey

Would you and I work well together? 


You are:

Already an expert in your field, and an educator.

You're an academic, teacher, researcher, journalist, filmmaker and/or speaker. 

An avid reader, and a writer in some form.

You write regularly. However, you may not have published a full-length non-fiction book yet.

Both scholastic and spiritual.

You see these as rich fields of exploration that complement one another.

Passionate about your subject.

It'll be a key part of your thought leadership platform, and you'll stand by it over time.

Offering beautiful, positive ideas.

Your message is not divisive or polemic. It may be disruptive, but it's driven by compassion.

Committed to meeting deadlines.

You're prepared to give this your all, even when things feel hard (as they inevitably will.)

Aware that creativity thrives inside boundaries.

It comes in the doing. Discipline births inspiration, and beauty can arrive when you least expect it.

Highly motivated and ready for a challenge.

You have time to devote to this, and can afford high touch coaching without financial stress.

You know this book is yours to write, because...

  • You've worked on your materials for years, gathering research, case studies, insights and depth of understanding. You've tested and course-corrected your ideas on large numbers of people. (Ten people is not enough!)
  • The idea for this book won't leave you alone. You know it's yours to write. You can feel it in your bones.
  • You may be in resistance, or feeling vulnerable, but the call is strong. (Sometimes we run from what we must want, especially if that goal asks for expansion or breaking new ground.)

Professionally speaking, your goals are...
  • To write a high calibre book - fired by passion, purpose and commitment - that becomes a vital part of your professional ecosystem and shares your core teachings. .
  • To be a thought leader on this subject. You know books don't necessarily make money, but this will enhance your expertise, opening up new income streams for you such as public speaking, trainings, retreats, coaching or consulting.
  • To take a long-term public stand for your book, whether it becomes an international bestseller with a big publisher behind it, or fills a small but targeted niche and is picked up by an independent press. 

You understand...
  • The value of coaching with a high personal touchof having someone put their full attention into your work. You welcome open communication, embrace feedback, like to be challenged, and enjoy creative brainstorming.
  • The usefulness of project management, accountability and deadlines, even if at times this may feel as if it runs counter to your creative flow. You accept that inspiration comes in the doing rather than waiting for the perfect moment.
  • That writing a book is hard - it requires love, sweat and dedication - and that success with a book is unpredictable. It involves timing and luck as well as skill. The publishing industry is changing all the time, and there are no guarantees.
