Coaching Packages

Whether you are writing a novel, memoir or nonfiction, a Book coach helps authors with the writing, publishing and marketing of their books. In case you wonder about the difference between memoir and nonfiction, here’s a short hand.

  • A memoir is a promise from the writer to their reader that the story they are telling is true as best as they remember it. The focus is on the writer’s journey.
  • A nonfiction or how-to book, even if the writers tells how they themselves learned something, the book focuses on the reader who will transform by reading the book.
Michaela’s astute feedback on the query pitch package for my novel helped me to drastically revise it, resulting in a much stronger and more interesting query. She also found great agents for me to query that had not been on my radar. I wholeheartedly recommend Michaela as a book coach for authors looking to take their work to another level.
