why you need to publish your book

Authors are more likely to receive press, get featured , and be quoted in media and press more than peers who don’t have a book.

Authors more often have notoriety with the ability to come across as an industry-authority, and are more trusted.

Essentially, authoring a book gives you more leveraging power, and opens more doors to exposure, creating more opportunities, all of which leads to personal brand growth and sales.

When leveraged right, the momentum of press can SKYROCKET you and your brand, but you need to do it right – or at least mostly right.

If you want to stand out amongst your peers and in your industry, TAKE THE RIGHT STEPS:

1. WRITE A BOOK

2. Clean up your online presence (website, socials, etc,)

3. Have a clear and palatable message

4. Work with the right coach and PR team

the most common tihngs I hear as a book coach & publicist

“I have an idea for a book, but I don't know what to do next.”

“I don't know how to get a publisher, so I was going to try and self-publish.”

“I heard publishers don’t offer the best deals, so self-publishing is better, right?”

“I’m not big enough on social media for a publisher to sign me.”

“I’ve written my whole book, but I'm stuck. I don't know what to do next.”

3 ways to publish?!

Whether you’ve got a full manuscript drafted or are just starting out with a new fiction or nonfiction idea, I am here to for the support you need. Coaching includes a series of foundations for your platform, coaching calls, and customized feedback aimed at giving authors a jump-start on their proposals. This step-by-step approach will help you define your project with confidence!

A book coach (sometimes called an author coach or a writing coach) takes a more hands-on approach. That means being part teacher, part editor, part project manager, part cheerleader. My coaching clients typically work with me for anywhere from two months to a year (if it’s a novel not written). We work on everything from just an idea, to already written manuscripts that just need to be in proposal form for pitching.

I’ve been in the business a long time, and have a solid book proposal skeleton that every publisher each time always praises how fantastic they are as its clear, concise, visual, and lays out why the publisher should invest in you and your ideas.

If you hire me for one-on-one coaching, I can help you with everything from:

  • Co-creation of an on-brand book proposal
  • Easy to do book proposal skeleton that is guaranteed to get seen & read by publishers
  • Help clarify your writing goals
  • Help brainstorm a concept that will appeal to the current publishing industry
  • Accountability & guidance to help you reach goals faster
  • Support & feedback on your writing journey
  • Step by step planning of your story
  • Proposal strategy
  • Proposal includes market research & analysis by an expert, design, marketing & PR plan, and a solid layout of who you are, why this book will sell, and more
  • Pitch publishers your creative work
  • Pitching your book strategically to aligned agents
  • 48hr Voxer support
  • Weekly zoom meetings


I’ve been a book worm my entire life. I would read scripts, plays, and books for A-list talent in my career, and I’ve got dozens of clients publishing deals. I have strong story and market knowledge, excellent project management skills, and strategic planning to help you develop both your story, marketing platform that appeals to publishers, and design.

Sometimes, what a writer needs most is someone to give them deadlines and create accountability. The book coaching model includes weekly or bi-weekly deadlines, and Zoom coaching sessions.

Depending on the category, depth, and length of your project, it typically takes two months (or up to 1 year for a novel), to complete your book proposal for publisher and/or agent submissions.

I work with many authors who have already self published, traditionally published, award winners, and I love working with first time authors.
