Take your readers on a

heroine's journey

Would you and I work well together? 


You are...

An expert in your field, and an educator: 

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

Both scholastic and spiritual:

you see these as rich fields of exploration that complement one another, rather than stand in opposition.

An avid reader, and already a writer,

although you may not have published a full-length non-fiction book yet.

Writing a book that will endure

because of its richness and depth of content. It's not just a marketing pamphlet for your business. 

Offering positive solutions.

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

Passionate about your subject.

You want to be in active relationship with this book over time: it will be a key part of your thought leadership platform.

Committed to meeting deadlines

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

Aware that creativity thrives inside boundaries,

that discipline births inspiration, and that beauty can arrive when you least expect it.

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.
  • The idea for this book won't leave you alone. You know it's yours to write.
  • You may be in resistance, but the call is strong. (Sometimes we run from what we must want, especially if that goal also signifies being unsafe. Being seen and heard on a bigger scale often feels unsafe, no matter how accomplished we may already be.)
Professionally speaking, your goals are...
  • To write a high calibre book with passion, purpose and commitment.
  • To be a thought leader on this subject. You know books don't necessarily make money, but you will integrate your book into your professional eco-system and see it enhance your expertise, opening up new income streams for you such as public speaking, training, 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, 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; that inspiration comes in the doing.
  • That writing a book is hard - it requires love, sweat, tears 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.
