Plan & Write Your Nonfiction Book

Hello fellow writer, I see you there—

You want to write a book.  It's your lifelong dream!

More than anything, you want to:

But, if you're like many aspiring writers, 

the idea of planning and writing a book feels too daunting.  

Since you've never written a book before, 

You don't know:

  • where to start
  • how to plan, write and edit your book
  • the timescales and work involved in writing a book
  • your publishing options
  • how to make the process easier for you 

Perhaps you:

  • Think you're not disciplined or talented enough to write a book
  • Believe it's too hard and will take too long
  • Doubt you have anything interesting or valuable to share
  • Hate the idea of planning because it feels uncreative and constrained

And maybe you worry you'll:

  • Feel lost in the process
  • Get overwhelmed by decisions that need to made
  • Never finish what you start
  • Become bored or unmotivated 
  • Struggle to commit to your writing 
  • Procrastinate and never start
  • Get stuck

If this is where you're at right now,

I can make it easier for you to plan & write your first book!

I believe that project planning should be creative, interactive, and enjoyable.  I use design thinking processes, coaching and creative facilitation to help guide you through the processes of planning, writing and editing your first book. 

My one-to-one coaching programmes and editorial services will help you overcome the hardships and steep learning curve involved in planning, writing and editing your first book.  I make the processes of planning and writing your book easier, faster and more enjoyable, so nothing stands in the way of you finishing your book !

For over 10 years, I’ve helped hundreds of writers gain clarity, direction and motivation through project planning. My proven project planning method uses design thinking processes to help you make decisionstake action and move forward with writing your book.

I help new authors develop comprehensive plans for their books and book projects. Whether you're preparing your book proposal, pitching to agents and publishers, or planning to self-publish, I can help you create a step-by-step plan for success.

Working together, you can learn how to leverage your creativity to commit to your writing, organise your project workflow, and keep you motivated so you finish what you start.

Transforming Your Ideas into Action:

It Starts with a Plan

As an author, you'll need a comprehensive plan for turning your dreams into a reality, whether this is your first or fifth book. An effective book plan is more than outlining your chapters or creating a table of contents. It’s a project plan that considers:

  • how you'll write your book
  • what your book is about
  • how your book is structured
  • who your book serves
  • how you'll connect with your readers
  • how you'll publish your book
  • how you'll promote your book
  • how you'll build and amplify your author platform
  • What you'll do when you encounter hurdles
  • What your purpose and goals are as a writer

Creating a project plan for your book involves self-discovery, research and a wider understanding of your publishing options.  I'll coach you using innovative exercises designed to help you make decisions and take action.

During my Plan Your Book programme, you'll develop a step-by-step roadmap that will give you a clear direction that makes it easier for you to write, structure and edit your book so you avoid feeling lost and overwhelmed while writing your book.

Plan Your Book:

Gain Clarity, Focus & Motivation to Write Your Book

If you want to move forward with writing your book and write with confidence without getting lost in the writing process and gain feedback on your ideas, then this is the programme for you!

Don't Wait until Someday, Start Today!

The world needs your voice!

How many times have you told yourself that you’re going to write a book? 

Or, how often do your friends and family ask you,

When are you going to write your book?

Maybe you:

  • Feel uncertain about how to start writing a book
  • Aren’t sure if you have a viable idea for a book
  • Don't have a consistent writing practice
  • Started writing but feel daunted by the process
  • Constantly rewrite your chapters because you don’t have a clear vision 
  • Feel isolated because you work all alone
  • Are anxious about not achieving your goals
  • Avoid writing to spare the pain of 'failing' 
  • Think writing a book is something other people do
  • Feel close to giving up on your dream
  • Worry it's already too late

    I can help you overcome the obstacles 

    As a book coach, I offer perspective, energy, honesty & empathy. I know when your dreams go unfulfilled, it's painful. And I don't want that for you. I can help you take back control and overcome the barriers that are preventing you from taking action.  We all know life is short and you deserve to live your dream.  Now is the time to get support to ensure you achieve your lifelong goal of writing a book.

    I coach writers to clarify their big ideas, organise their book structure and share their magic with the world.

    Who I work with

    I work with women who want to share their ideas, knowledge, experiences and wisdom through writing nonfiction. Whether you want to to become a thought leader in your industry, build relationships with with new clients or help people resolve difficulties and problems you've overcome, I'll help you plan a book that makes an impact.

    I work across all nonfiction genres, but I specialise in helping authors articulate and share their expertise, insights and signature processes of working through expository nonfiction, which aims to teach, explain or inform readers about a specific topic.

    I often work with educators, coaches, consultants, service providers, business professionals, creatives, academics, and entrepreneurs.  I enjoy helping writers translate their expertise into influential and compelling books about business, education, art, creativity, wellness, personal growth, self-help, family and relationships.    

    If this is you, then let's work together to bring your dream of writing your book into reality.

    Shape Your Legacy & Raise Your Voice

    Nothing compares to holding your book in your hands! I know this feeling first-hand and I’m passionate about helping first-time women authors experience the same sense of accomplishment when they achieve their lifelong dream of getting published.

    My coaching programme prepares you for your publishing journey, whether you’re self-publishing, querying agents or pitching to independent publishers.

    I draw on my experience of Design Thinking to help you plan your book, analyse your readers, research comparative titles, devise a marketing plan and design your book structure.

    I'll show you step-by-step systems for planning, organising, researching, and writing your book, so you can build and elevate your reputation as a writer.

    Writing a book is a lifelong dream for many, but few follow through and make their dream a reality. Life gets in the way, even though we all know life is short. There's too much a stake to not write and release your book into the world.

    We all deserve to raise our voices and be heard. Writing a book gives you confidence and recognition, but knowing where to start is difficult if you have never done it before. As an author, I understand this because I’ve been there myself.  Let me show you an easier and faster way of getting to where you want to be with your writing project.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Absolutely, if you need to on idea generation, then this is the programme for you. I have extensive experience in facilitating collaborative brainstorming sessions where creative thinking and problem-solving will help you devise a book idea you’re excited about writing. The survey you will fill out will also help you refine your ideas by helping you define your readers, The Author Survey you will fill out will also help you refine your ideas, and identify your readers and your wider ambitions as a writer. This is an ideal position from which to generate exciting book ideas!

    That's fantastic! There’s nothing more exciting than having great ideas. But trying to stuff too many ideas into one book isn’t a recipe for success. During our session, I will help you clarify and tease out which content ideas are suitable for additional books and help you plan for a series of publications, if appropriate.

    I think smart, highly determined and diligent women can figure anything out! But if you’re looking for a way to save time, stop procrastinating, overcome feeling stuck and avoid the headache of trying to figure all of it out on your own, then my programme will help you do that. At some stage, all writers need feedback and it’s great to get outside expertise to hold up your idea and examine it from a different perspective. Sometimes, we can’t see the trees through the forest when we’re engrossed in our work. A professional perspective can help you make better decisions that align with your goals as a writer and save you from the steep learning curve.

    I coach a range of fiction and nonfiction genres, except erotica, and horror.
