Not ready for publishing? These are the three Tracks
I have an idea, or notes or some things written.
You’ll meet with your personalized book coach, work through all your ideas, and pull together a manuscript. We’d recommend coming to writing prompts and retreats, mindset coaching calls, hanging with your accountability coach and coming to book club. If that is more than you can do, no problem, connect with your coach and write!
I’m on my way to a full manuscript.
You’ll work with your personal editor back and forth to polish the book, jump on brainstorming and strategy calls to decide on the publishing model that is right for you and your book, finalize your book cover ideas, and start thinking about author promotions.
I’m publishing or just getting ready to publish
It’s time to get serious! Even if you work with a publisher, you’ll need to setup book signings (in person or virtually), podcast interviews, and build your email list. If you want we can even coach you on speaking, media interviews and ongoing PR!
