Book coaching: mentoring and advice for your expert book

COACHING

You're writing and want a mentor: feedback on what you write, accountability to your goals, a spare brain to hold the big picture, motivation, advice, and a shared experience. Get expert book coaching for each stage of your book.

This is ideal for starting new projects, putting together your publishing plan, or kickstarting something that's been on the back burner.

Each week we speak on Skype, to discuss your latest draft, chapter, or plan. I give you detailed feedback and help you plan your next week's writing aims.

The help you need

Each person's project is different, and your sessions are tailored to what you need:

  • feedback: reading and giving feedback on outlines, drafts, and rewrites
  • ideas: discussing and brainstorming your ideas
  • the book's shape: working together on planning the book's structure, organisation, and flow
  • style: advice and help on writing in your voice
  • reaching goals: setting and managing targets, being accountable
  • the creative process: help bringing the creative process into a usually busy life, from creativity exercises to finding the right head space and physical space
  • publishing: coaching on the publishing process - self-publishing or traditional publishing

Megan has been a brilliant support. She is positive and motivating; as well as being extremely knowledgeable - but the real proof is that I have been more productive whilst working with Megan than any other time in my life as a writer. Carole Hautot on LinkedIn
