Brighter Messaging
For Book Authors

Coaching & Marketing

Our author coaching engagements support your writing goals through thought partnership, accountability, and editorial feedback. In most cases, we meet twice monthly to work on your objectives and progress, as well as to address challenges and questions. Interim check-ins (via email) help authors overcome roadblocks and maintain forward progress.

Author coaching is an ideal format for harnessing the power of the creative process to develop a manuscript while staying on track for completion.

While authors can engage a coach at any point in the book development process, working with a coach right from the start can help you to avoid extensive rework. We can work with you on:
