Take a custom and flexible approach to writing your book by collaborating with one of our professional writing coaches. Seasoned in the art of storytelling through your thought leadership, they will nurture, guide, and instruct you as needed to help you generate the material and render your early draft.

Step 2: Feedback & Writing Coaching, Copy Editing, & Publication Support

Whether you write your first draft with us or you already have a draft on the go, we’re here to support you with preparing the book for publication. 

Feedback & Writing Coaching

– Manuscript Evaluation on early manuscript pages

– Continual support and instruction on writing craft

– Scheduling and accountability to complete the project work

Once you have your rough first draft, your writing coach & editor provides you with comprehensive feedback designed to walk you through how to implement any changes, teach you editing skills so you can self-edit, or they can make editorial changes with you collaboratively.

Above all, they ensure you’re supported as you strive toward shaping the draft the way you want it.


– Substantive (Developmental) feedback, copy editing, and proofreading

Your editor will help refine the draft at the chapter, section, paragraph, and line level so it is lean, concise, purposeful, brand-specific, and correct.

Publication Support

-Assist with the all-important nonfiction book proposal for literary agents or independent publishers, platform creation, and marketing

– Self-publication support (including book formatting and uploading to Amazon KDP for e-book and print and Smashwords for e-books)

A publication strategy can be determined to help you know whether to aim for self-publishing or traditional publishing and what steps you can take to achieve your publishing goals.
