Book Coaching

Why work with a book coach?

Publishing a book is still one of the most effective ways to demonstrate your expertise, reach new audiences, and build your credibility. That’s a good thing to do at any time in your career, and it’s especially powerful when your expertise has not yet been recognised, yet you are keen for growth.

Your own book can definitely make a big impact, but you need to get it right. You definitely do NOT want to find out after you publish that you totally missed the mark.

And if your dream includes the thrill of seeing your name on the cover of a well-designed book in a good bookstore, you MUST produce a quality book that a book distributor will take seriously in your pitch process. This is definitely achievable for a first-time author and self-publisher, but you have to know what you are doing – or work with someone who does.

Self-authorship is a part of the process


Self-authorship will happen as you author your book. You will change. You will develop your internal authority as you decide on, define and publicly declare your beliefs, values and relationships based upon self-selected criteria.

You will go through your own hero’s journey if you will, and it may not always be comfortable. You will go on an adventure, face internal challenges along the way, win a victory, and come home changed or transformed.

It is a fact that the majority of self-determining women say that support (or lack of it) is the one factor that most impacts their success. A good book coach provides you with a secure base for your journey, and mirrors much-needed belief before you might believe in yourself.

When working with Bev as your book coach, you will:
  • Have step-by-step support through the planning, writing & publishing process
  • Develop your self-belief and settle your fear that you are ‘not good enough’
  • Set yourself up for success by ensuring you write the right book
  • Learn the publishing process and develop a schedule and deadline
  • Map out the blueprint of your book in detail
  • Finally start the book that has been begging to be written
  • Have accountability and help to establish good writing habits
  • Build your writing skills as you progress
  • Have your work reviewed and improved as you write
  • And finally finish the book that you have dreamed of writing
You will also:


  • Confidently move into the book production phase
  • Create a quality book you can be proud of
  • Be prepared for the the next stage of marketing once you are a published author

In 2013 I was fortunate enough to be the recipient of the Queensland Rural, Regional and Remote Women’s Network Strong Women Leadership Award for Business. As part of my award, I was able to complete Bev’s book coaching course. Bev was a wonderful mentor, and the program kept me on track when I could very easily have gone way off track. Without Bev, my book ‘Small Company Big Business’ would never have seen the light of day.
