There is no doubt that writing a book is a smart business move, but at the same time, it’s not an easy thing to do. That’s why a lot of people talk about writing a book, but few do. A well-written and well-published book can build an incredible profile, transform a business and provide incredible opportunities.
I wrote my first book 20 years ago. A simple book on marketing, called 101 Ways to Market Your Business. It was published by Allen & Unwin. I went on to write 14 books (so far), working with world-class publishers and also self-publishing my own books. All of my books have become bestsellers, they have been sold in over 65 countries and translated into languages including Russian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Nigerian, Indonesian, Thai and Indian. I’m officially Australia’s #1 small business author.
In the last 10 years I’ve been teaching people around the world how to write and publish their book (specifically non-fiction books). I’ve had the great pleasure of helping over 700 people to write and publish their first book. In some instances they have gone onto write and publish their second, third and even fourth books. The bottom line is that I have great resources, models and frameworks.
My aim is to help you write and publish a world-class book that can become the most extraordinary leveraging tool for you. I’m not into churning books out, I’m into quality. I would love the opportunity to help you become a published author and share what I’ve learned along the way. Check out my Author Coaching packages below.
Author coaching options
Would you like to work with me to write and publish your book?
A lot of people like to work one-on-one with me to develop, write and publish their book. This gives a greater degree of flexibility and customisation. If you click on the link below you can go to the information page that outlines my three main author coaching opportunities (I give a brief intro to each below). These vary depending on what it is you really want to achieve with your book and what level of support and coaching you would like.
Getting started: Book writing starter package
Are you thinking about writing your first book but you’re just not sure where to start? You’ve got an idea but you need some advice to make sure that your idea has merit? And what is the process the actual process to write and publish a book?
If you’d like to know the answers to these questions and more, my Book Writing Starter Package is the perfect product for you. We will have a coaching session to get started and to answer your initial questions. Then I get you to fill in a Book Pitch document, which will form the backbone of your overall book, giving you clarity and direction. Then I review your Book Pitch and give you direct feedback during the second coaching session, along with advice and recommendations to get your writing started.
Programme: Author INC – six-month group author coaching programme
Author INC is a group programme, with scheduled start dates. I can also do customised groups, so if you’ve got a few friends or colleagues who want to write a book, drop me a line and let’s see what we can work out.
This is easily one of the most comprehensive book writing programmes on the planet. If you’re ready to write and publish a quality book, this is the programme for you.
Retreat: Author Academy – four-day retreat for new authors
This is my signature author training retreat – and I’ve run them around the world. Over the four days we work to map out your book, getting really clear on your idea, your reader, your book structure and much more. You will leave the retreat with your first chapter written and your entire book mapped out – and a comprehensive writing and publishing plan.
For people who already have a book published: Book Power – the ultimate book leveraging programme for authors
One of the biggest challenges most authors face is what to do when their book actually arrives. For most new authors, this becomes a major stumbling block that leads to a state I call ‘post-publish depression’.
The reality is, leveraging your book and doing everything you can to get the full advantage from the time and money you’ve invested normally needs specific direction and advice. Where better to get it than from someone who has written 14 bestselling books over 20 years? And to say that what I’ve learned over this time has completely changed my life is a huge understatement.
This six-month programme is incredibly detailed and comprehensive and any author will learn exactly how to leverage their book and build the business they want and deserve. To find out more about the BOOK POWER programme, click on the link below.
Having worked with over 700 first-time authors, across virtually every industry imaginable around the world, I’m certain that I can help you to get your book written and published. It’s really just a matter of what it is you are looking for in a book writing coach.
