You want to write a book but aren’t sure where to start.
I’ve heard you and know you have probably already started drowning in all the information that is out there about the book writing and publishing industry.
Let’s keep it simple, shall we?
In my free downloadable “Essential Checklist” for first time authors, I break down the pre-, during, and post-manuscript steps that are critical for writing your manuscript and bringing your book to market. But, while most entrepreneurs know they WANT to write a book, they need some direction in getting started.
That’s exactly why I’ve created this 2.5 hour private coaching option, where we cover the pre-manuscript tasks (whether or not you’ve already started writing), and go through each together to launch you into your writing with confidence.
After your coaching session, you also receive 2 additional coaching hours to use as you need through your book writing process.
What We Cover
To create a successful end product, taking time to get really clear and build a strong foundation, before you begin, is essential. However, many first-time authors skip this entirely. Putting words down on a blank sheet of paper is not how successful writers start a book. Instead, pre-manuscript works includes:
- Determining your topic/ Coming up with a fresh concept
- Being clear about your intended reader
- Understanding your voice
- Creating an outline
- Know where you are going and the end goal you want for your readers
- Determine what is important to include and exclude to tell the story
- Identify what research you may have to do
- Pin point areas that could be legally “messy” such as confidential information, slander, legal ramifications, etc.
- Identify concepts, characters, settings and timeline
- Suggestions for actually getting it done (overcoming writer’s block)
- Determine your budget
- Determine your required timeline
- Begin researching how you may position your book to make money/ tying it to your business goals
By the end of the 2.5 hour online session via Zoom, you will walk away with:
- A clear topic for your book including an outline
- Clear goals for your book
- A clear understanding of your budgetary needs and timeline to bring your book to market
- Ideas for how to leverage your book as a revenue source
