Initial Writing & Publishing Coaching Session – $80

  • This is a valuable planning session in which clients learn how to think about their book project in terms of planning it for publishing and marketing success.
  • This may involve per-meeting and in-session research and online training to introduce tools and methods for success.
  • This is also a session for getting to know your coach and your coach getting to know the author and their project to see whether a future commitment to work together makes sense and is mutually an exciting match.
  • As a take-away, a next steps recommended plan towards writing and publishing will be given and/or emailed at the end of this session.
