The book-coaching industry isn’t necessarily new, but it might as well be. Just like the writers you work with, you may feel like you do this work in isolation, unconnected from the other coaches who might be out there facing the same challenges and questions that you are. That’s why we’re so excited to be hosting the first-ever free online Business of Book Coaching Summit. We’re putting together an incredible lineup of business and coaching leaders who will show you how to run a successful, sustainable, soulful business. Join us for 5 days of in-depth classes and workshops with advice you need to see your business thrive and connect with coaches just like you.

This Summit was borne out of our Business of Book Coaching master class, in which Author Accelerator co-founder and multiple-six-figure book coach Jennie Nash harnesses all of her business experience and know-how to help YOU start and grow your own book-coaching business. Learn the steps you need to take to build a successful, sustainable, soulful business, including tips on marketing, setting prices, managing your energy, and more.

Is it your dream to open your own book-coaching business? Are you looking for a way to optimize your existing business? Being an entrepreneur requires a vastly different skill set than being a book coach, but we’ve got you covered!

This course covers the practical business aspects of book coaching but doesn’t stop there. It also dives into the deeper meaning of this work, the need for self-care, and how to set boundaries. So good!
— Sonya Myers, book coach


As you get on your way to leading a strong, successful coaching business, your focus will inevitably turn toward getting more clients.

Maybe you want to brush up on your editorial skills. Maybe you’re yearning to dive deeper into the craft, or build your project-management muscle. Or you might even be brand new to book coaching and wondering what it’s all about.

Our Advanced Book Coach Training and Certification course is designed to equip coaches with expertise and integrity, and to provide a beacon of light for writers looking to work with the best coaches in the business. (P.S. You’ll become a better writer too!)

Writers know that when they hire an Author Accelerator Certified Book Coach, they're getting to work with someone who has the skills, experience, and network to help them write the best book they can. Author Accelerator is committed to helping you become a better coach, in turn helping writers write better books, and lifting up the publishing industry as a whole.


My biggest takeaway ... is that writing an excellent book is a skill that can be learned. I didn’t learn this skill in my creative writing program, but I’ve learned it from Author Accelerator's program, and now I can teach it.

— Kathryn Dodson, Advanced Certified book coach

WOW. This book coach program is... just wow. ... I think that using these methods just saved my own WIP. I’m so gosh durned excited to learn more. Yay for unintentional progress!
— Arra Boles, Advanced Training student

Much like writing, book coaching offers endless opportunities to grow and learn and become better. The most challenging aspect for me was finding my own self-confidence. Fortunately, there are lessons for that! —

KC Karr, Advanced Certified book coach
