Writing a book is a life-changing journey. You will experience incredible highs and lows. Some days you will want to joyously share your writing with the world and other days you’ll want to trash it and obliterate your sorrows with potato chips.
Writing a good book requires bravery, determination, self-compassion, and grit. People think it is easy until they try it.
There will be stumbling blocks along the way. You’ll fear rejection one day and the next day worry about being mobbed at the grocery store once you achieve best-seller status. You will encounter ghosts from your past who told you to sit down and be quiet or that boys would not date you if you were too smart. You’ll be tempted to skim the surface of your ideas, stay safe, and binge watch movies instead of writing something meaningful and honest.
And yet...you have an idea that you can't abandon.
You know you have a message to share, one that will bring hope, solve a problem, or inspire others. Your heart and soul long to be shared. If you don’t write your book, you’ll be endlessly disappointed in yourself.
Wouldn't it be great to have an experienced, kind, intuitive, and knowledgeable mentor by your side?
You don't have to do this alone!
If you want to write your own book, there are some essential things to know and plan before you begin writing, such as the premise and promise of the book, the target reader and the specific benefit that reader will enjoy from the book, plus a logical sequence for presenting the information.
Planning this information BEFORE you start writing will save you hours of frustration.
And, if you've already embarked on the writing process, you can still do this important foundational work, making the remainder of your writing easier.
I offer a variety of support packages for writers in the midst of creating their masterpieces, including Book Foundations calls where we do all the planning for your book, as well as on-going feedback, accountability, and consultation.
If you want to write your own book, shorten your learning curve, and get the expert mentoring and support you deserve, I'm here for you!

Lynne has a knack of "just knowing" her writers and what they experience on the writer’s journey. It is almost as if her intuition alerts her to "what is up" long before the writer does! With this innate ability, she was able to guide me gently but firmly back on track when I wanted to give up. I was so fortunate to have her walk with me on my journey.

Lynne told me in the beginning that writing the book was only the first step and that the ultimate goal would be to create a business around the book. No one ever talked about this before nor provided the information in which to do so - Lynne does this in a most sacred way, honoring the spirit of each of her authors and helping them to define and clarify their vision in a way that will be successful for them in the outside world.

Writing a book is such a personal process, even if you are creating a business book, like I did. My book is meant to inspire, not lecture. It's designed to be accessible and human. I owe my book's becoming an extension of who I am, to Lynne Klippel.
