Why write a book? Everyone has reasons. What’s yours?
You may want to write a book because:
You need to promote yourself, and your business (freelance writer? Blogger?);
You want to build a business from scratch. Yes, you can turn one book into an entire business;
You’re tired of struggling with your writing. Your aim is to write a money-maker, a book which SELLS;
You want to fulfill a dream;
You want to create a profitable side-hustle;
… what’s YOUR reason?
My story: then, and now… (and why I can help you to write and publish your book)
Way, way back in the mists of time, some 40 years ago… I decided that I’d stop procrastinating about writing.
I finally made the decision to write a novel, and get it published. If I didn’t succeed, I’d give up all my dreams of writing for a living, forever.
This was many years before the web, and self-publishing. Back then, “getting published” meant getting a publisher. I decided that I’d give myself ten years to get a novel published.
Well, it took a lot less than ten years: within six months, I had a multi-book contract from Macdonald Futura, a big UK publisher at the time. (Macdonald Futura later sold to Little, Brown in 1992.)
Here’s what I learned from the decision I made: once you decide on something, and commit to it, things happen.
A famous quote attributed to the poet Goethe puts it pithily:
Only engage, and then the mind grows heated—
Begin it, and the work will be completed!
Writing books is a profitable skill, and you can develop that skill
Over the years, I’ve written many books, both for myself, and as a ghostwriter.
Ghostwriting is challenging, but it’s profitable. People need to have their name on a book for many reasons, but writing books takes time. So, once you’ve developed the skill, and can write books on demand, you can name your own price as a ghostwriter.
Writing and publishing a book is scary: we can help

In response to students’ requests, we’re now offering monthly book coaching packages.
Your wish; my command. :-)
Monthly book coaching packages: what you need, when you need it
Each package offers the help you need, when you need it.
Currently, we offer three packages, plus a tailored-to-you option.
Three book coaching packages: from beginning author to pro
A. “Help me to get started writing a novel (or a nonfiction book)”: includes choosing a genre/ category; writing a blurb; creating an outline, or for pantsers, discovering your characters/ topics.
B. “I need help to edit my book…”: your draft is done. You need help to get it into shape, with macro and micro self-editing, so that it’s ready for an editor.
C. “Help me to publish my book”: (1) you have a book idea, or you’ve written a book, and need help writing a book query letter and proposal to submit to literary agents/ publishers. (2) Or, you want to self-publish your completed novel, or completed nonfiction book — get guidance in publishing and marketing.
Choose one from the most popular options: Packages A, B, and C.
