How It Works


Price: $550

[I] am very happy with the program and coach. I doubt I would have made it this far without this kind of structure. ... Overall, I am extremely happy with this process. Kudos to you for developing this much needed coaching method. I have told all my writer friends about you.
— Carol White

I loved my experience with my book coach. Her perspicacity and relentless insistence about no cliches (even in dialogue) made my voice shimmer off the page. Not only is [she] shrewd, but she is funny and kind.

— Elizabeth Wafler

Wonderful experience. I am so eager to continue my writing journey! Thank you!
— Katherine Thebeau
