Is 2023 the Year that You Finally Write Your Book?
This year-long group experience is similar to my one-to-one coaching program for writing books–except you’ll be working with a group of aspiring writers who will not only offer moral support but will also be your built-in audience to test your ideas.
Over the course of a year, we will collaboratively create the content of your book. Our goal together is to develop a polished manuscript that is ready for publication. I hold a sacred space that explores your individual creativity so that you can really speak your message and write what needs to be said. In each session, I encourage you to freely express yourself and embrace the courage to be seen and heard in the world.
We will meet twice a month via Zoom to accomplish the following:
- Identify your message and theme.
- Define your ideal audience and purpose for your message.
- Create the outline of your book.
- Set milestones and deadlines for content delivery.
- Collaborate on editing revisions.
- Develop your Literary Market Plan.
- Build Your Author Platform, through blogging, social media posts, and podcast appearances.
Building Your Buzz
Creating an author platform allows your readers to find you. This is vitally important as you step out into the world with your message. Here, we strategize ways to increase your credibility and visibility through blogging, social media posts, and podcast appearances.
- Repurpose content from your book into blogs and social media posts.
- Research the best platforms for you to post your blogs.
- Develop a reasonable schedule for writing your blogs or ghostwrite your blogs for you.
- Work with designers to create eye-catching, effective visuals to highlight your message.
- Identify media outlets (radio, TV, and podcasts) that reach your ideal audience
It is Kathy Sparrow who is truly the master of this craft. She is able to adapt the tone of the writer, spin the words, and create the story we were meant to hear. Her love of words and a good story goes beyond editor or wordsmith. She has a passion that is felt deeply among her peers––and greatly appreciated.”
Writing Blogs that Impact, Influence, and Transform
Over six sessions, you’ll learn the best way to speak to your audience, structure your blogs, and discover different platforms to increase your visibility. We will:
- Meet twice a month for a total of six sessions
- Identify your ideal audience
- Create a structure for your blogs
- Learn to create social media posts that effectively announce your latest blogs
Receive feedback on each of your blogs, and your final version will be edited and copyedited.
Plus, you’ll have access to my Blogs, Books, and Beyond course.
Is your book almost completed and you’re ready for a fresh pair of eyes to review it for unclear content and organizational flow?
In the “Manuscript Review” package, I analyze your manuscript objectively for readability and clarity. I provide an overview of what is working well and what areas need improvement. The goal is to provide you with an objective viewpoint of the structure of your book and give guidance on how to improve the readability, organization, and presentation (grammar, punctuation, etc.).
Not everyone is wired to sit at a desk for hours mind-mapping, outlining, and then writing their book or their blogs. This is where I come in as your collaborative partner in the book development process.
