I have never once had the desire to be a “guru.”
However, I’ve been seeing some disheartening things happening in the writing and publishing world, and I don’t like seeing creatives, especially fledgling creatives, being taken advantage of.
So! I am now offering coaching sessions.
I have spent hundreds of hours in classrooms and workshops. A practiced and skilled communicator, I will:
- Meet you where you’re at.
- Help you figure out where you want to go.
- Suggest the next steps to take to get there.
And I will never lie to you. I won’t blow smoke. I will tell you what I know, and if I don’t know the answer to something, I will admit that.
I am coming at this creating, publishing, and marketing thing from an unabashedly biblical worldview. Being a Christian makes writing different. Being a Christian makes publishing different. Being a Christian makes marketing different. I can help you navigate those complexities.
Now, I am not the most successful author in the world, but I have been at this a while. I’ve learned a lot through trial and error. I’ve wasted a lot of money on “training” from people who probably shouldn’t have been giving advice. And early on, I even fell victim to predatory publishing practices. I’ve been around the block a time or two and can help save you some laps. I have authored more than sixty books in multiple genres with multiple pen names. Most of my books are indie published, and I’ve also worked with big publishers. My writing has earned me a full-time income that has helped to support my family since 2014. In the world of publishing, that’s a long time.
If I can be of help to you, please book an hour of my time. I would l would love to be of service.
