Let us help you go from an idea in your head 
to a written manuscript on paper!

Are you ready to write your book, 
but don't know where to start?

One of the hardest parts of writing a book is sitting down and getting started. That's why I've created the Getting Started for Authors program. 

This program will help you—

  • Get Into The Author Mindset: Learn best practices for how to create a structure and routine to make the most of your writing time
  • ​Find Your Focus: Save time by having a clearer sense of where your manuscript is going
  • Refine Your Target Audience: Get laser-focused on who your end reader is to make the writing process much easier
  • Identify How Long Your Book Should Be: Develop a solid vision of your book's length to ensure you cross the finish line
  • ​​​Outline Your Book: Make your writing process much smoother by crafting an effective outline and mapping out the direction of your manuscript 
  • Utilize Other Materials: Shortcut the writing process when repurposing materials from other things you've done

This program focuses on four key areas of your writing process

Mindset

Accountability

Organization

Writing

This is how Getting Started for Authors will support you...

Mindset

The focus of my company is on purpose and impact. Therefore, it is essential that I illustrate the importance of having a solid purpose for your book project.

Getting into the right mindset as an author can be one of the most rewarding parts of this process. 

- I will show you how surrounding yourself with the right people who believe in you will impact your success. 

- I will show you how to give yourself permission to write a shitty first draft that will free you from writer's block. 

- And I will provide you with known systems and processes that will alleviate any added stress of the unknown as you begin to write.

Without proper accountability it can be very hard to get your book written. Having other people checking in on you and your progress can be a huge motivator to keep going when your writing gets difficult. 

As part of this program, you will be invited into my private Whatsapp Accountability Group where you will receive daily reminders from my team, as well as encouraging words of support from other aspiring authors who are also working on their books. 

And you have the ability to connect with other like-minded authors to help support you throughout your entire writing journey.

Accountability

Organization

A critical step in getting your book written is to be focused and organized, using your new and existing materials to your advantage. Therefore, I will guide you using best practices I have gathered from my own experiences and those of other authors. 

This includes areas such as; outlining your manuscript, repurposing existing content from other things you've written, and an amazing software program called Scrivener that will absolutely change the way you think about your manuscript. Not only do I include a Scrivener tutorial video, but I also include a book outline/template for you to utilize, which will save you hours of time setting up your book file—and it will ensure that your book outline is set up properly.

Additionally, I have a Progress Tracker Spreadsheet tool, which if you are a bit on the Type A side (like me) and you want to really track and monitor your writing progress, you'll be able to really see when and where you are most efficient with your writing.
A solid writing routine can make or break the success of your book project. 

Fortunately, there are a lot of really amazing ways to get into your writing groove. As part of this program we invite you into our weekly writer's group that meets two times a week on Zoom, to provide a private, dedicated, and safe space to get your writing done.

When you join this program you will gain access to my top 30 writing tips that will dramatically improve not only the quality of your writing, but the speed of your writing, and your ability to go deeper in recalling stories and experiences. 

My challenge to you is to see if you can write a 33,000 words manuscript in 30-days. That's just 1,100 words per day on your manuscript to have a shitty first draft by the end of the 30 days. You don't need to dive in this aggressively, but I am going to encourage you to crank through it to further release your creative potential. But remember, I'm here with you in our accountability group, so when the times get difficult, you have a support system.

Writing

Am I the Right Fit for this Program?

  • Have you been thinking about writing a book for a long time, but haven't really known where to start?
  • ​Do you know that by telling your story you can impact other people who've been through a similar situation?
  • ​Are you already teaching, speaking, training, or consulting around the topic that you want to write about?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, I feel really certain Getting Started for Authors would be a great next step in helping you get your book finally written!

What Aspiring Authors are Saying About the Program

This has been just what I needed to get started. Your tip #4 (from the Writing Challenge videos) that I watched last night just as I was getting started to write validated what was going on in my mind. I was so tempted to just give up on the day since it was so late. However this time I changed the script in my head and reminded myself that consistency is an act of self-love in this case. For the longer that I hold off on writing and taking the daily steps to get my book written, the more upset I become with myself.

Thank you for coming up with this program!

I love you so much. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. With so many people feeling lost and overwhelmed by the Coronavirus, you have stepped into a powerful leadership role as a means to encourage your tribe to step into their power. I LOVE it and I so appreciate you. Without this program I would not have written my book as quickly and as efficiently as I did. 


                                                                                              Bill C., Aspiring Author in Long Island, NY
I had the vision for this book, with absolutely zero idea about the mechanics of writing it. Working through this program helped me refine ideas and get clarity, while also exposing me to other aspects of successfully launching a book out into the world. This program made the process more attainable. You don’t have to go it alone!

                                                                                              Jen O., Aspiring Author in Seattle, WA
During the weekly Writing Group alone, I've gotten an enormous amount of work done. It’s enough accountability to get me to the table and open enough to do what I needed. Hats off! Well done. One of the things I love most about PYP is that you become part of the family, not just a book publishing transaction.

                                                                                            Jamie C., Aspiring Author in Atlanta, GA
Very helpful program is guiding me to create a roadmap through my writing process. I felt very supported through my challenges. For instance, I created a visual goal map for me to measure my progress on writing that has me excited to write down the number of words I write so I feel successful. At a time when I was experiencing burnout, the guidance in this program empowered me to write a chapter on Burnout which is very important in Leadership. To write the chapter while feeling burnout allowed me to find the right words as I was in my experience. 

The materials are very helpful to better understand the process from putting down the first word to utilizing previous content, this program is designed to help you succeed in getting your book written.
