Clear Eyes. Full Battery. Can't Lose!
Consider me your Coach Taylor. Coach Boone. Coach Lasso. Mister Miyagi. Mrs. Miyagi?
I have my own Iris & Ink book coaching program created from my book coaching education and experience working with clients. I tailor a plan to you and your needs. This isn't like any plotting you've done before. Once embraced, you'll see the path to success. Give your book the love and attention it needs before writing (as hard as that is!) and the writing will be a beautiful experience. Even if your book is finished (or partially finished) but not clicking, or not getting attention from agents, this process will help you re-centre and get everything on track.
Writing a successful book isn't an accident. It isn't even done with plot and character outlines. It needs an intricately structured blueprint. This is more than your average outline. To enchant readers (and agents) you need to do more, and I know how to help you do it. Instead of setting yourself up for frustration and road blocks, my assistance will get you the strong foundation required to make it through the path to publishing.
I am here to help set out your ideas, structure your work, set (and keep) deadlines, maintain plot clarity, consider genre norms, respect character development, organize research and book material, and more. I'll cheer you on. I'll (gently) push you forward. I'll help you through the crises (including of confidence) and I'll end with an inspiring speech.
Well... only maybe for the speech. I'll try my best. We'll have fun, regardless.
Book coaching is one on one. I will meet you where you are with your book and together we will figure out what you need. We will plot, organize, structure, cheer (and cry, maybe), write, revise, and get your book written. We will anchor your book. I can assist you right through to your proposal and query, or until you're ready to self-publish.
Packages include one on one live virtual sessions as well as weekly email check ins, email assistance, and more.
Needs are different for each writer and each book. Check in with me if you'd like to know more!
