Strategy intensive dedicated time for me to jump-start you and your book to the next stage

Stories are how we understand the world...

Want a course, deep dive, book coaching keynote talk, and mini mastermind all in one? Yeh, you do...

I won't beat around the book-writing bush here:

2.5 hours, $2800 USD investment, and you have a plan for the next six months

what you get
  • a recording and transcript that will read like an action list, course outline and six month book building plan

  • my estimation of your message, mission, and book project's readiness for dedicated writing, coaching, and accountability work

  • what to do next to enhance your content

  • marketing, outreach, platform planning, publishing research to do

  • some writing feedback on what you send me in advance

  • examples and insights from my past and current clients, mastermind members and years as a coach, traditionally published author, and author-publishing strategist

  • insider access to what only my private members community, mastermind, one-on-one clients and book besties know

How it works

welcome to a personalize, simplified process

  • I already have your Reach Out form, awesome. My team will contact you with an additional form inviting you to send some pages to me in advance of our call. 

  • You'll be contacted personally by my Business Manager to arrange our time together. 

  • I ask that you pre-pay your invoice as a commitment to hold our time together

Friend, you need a book writing coach.
What do you and your book get when you hire me as your writing coach?
  • A cheerleader - confidence that you can finish is my main aim in supporting you on your book journey. I'm on your team, dedicated to your project and just as committed as you are to meeting the deadline.

  • An accountability partner - with a writing plan, a schedule for our calls, and me working on your pages every week with you, you won't ever wonder what to do next, or succumb to putting off your writing.

  • A brainstorming sidekick - I'm your coach, and that means that what we do together is confidential, and that you ultimately decide on how you want your book to work. You have a trusted companion to brainstorm with so that you point toward the strongest strategy and maximize your writing time.
  • A wordsmith - I work with you regularly, and show you how to enhance your content, deepen your message, and build your writing muscle with narrative, scene, backstory, reflection, dialogue and other techniques.

  • An expert - I'm the one who can see the process from helicopter level, and is focused on you getting what you want (self-published course companion book, a traditionally-published memoir, or the first of three resource volumes for clients)

  • A sherpa - I'll be carrying the weight of the tough stories, the arduous content, talking the content through with you, so that you can see what matters to your reader.

  • A time manager - I'll get you to the finish line (whatever that is) much faster than you would do on your own. Our timeline is the first work we will do together when we build your writing plan.
"Coaching with Patti is like having a personal writing cheerleader with a thesaurus and a scheduler instead of pompoms. But just as energetic!"

Dr. Mandy Lehto

This isn't a course, and I don't do packages that promise you'll have a book in some amount of time. If you are looking for a checklist, a template or a guarantee, I'm not your coach.

I won't be supporting your self-diagnosed writer's block. It isn't a thing. I won't let you get stuck. I will find a way to work with or around your time limitations, support your work style, strengthen your content and coach you through your self-imposed limitations.

  • your somewhat conceived book idea,

  • a clear idea of what you plan to include,

  • the book's intended purpose for you,

  • your life, your business, and the goal.

  • (we'll work out the rest together.)

This goal is yours, and yours alone. Maybe you've always wanted to be a writer, and this book has been simmering on a back burner for a decade. Fantastic! Let's write it! Your goal might be to self-publish the book to launch a business. You might be a writer who wants an agent who can get you a Big Five publishing deal. Let's get you there!


Oh, and I won't let you quit —because that's (in part) what you're hiring me for.

How does coaching work?

Coaching with me is all bespoke, customized to you, your writing process, or your project's needs. If you have a book deal and need 60,000 perfectly polished words in three months, you'll need more support from me than a writer who is giving herself a year to draft a memoir before considering how to publish it.

I fill my docket with the juiciest work I have right now. Because I'm a coach, co-author, collaborator, and publishing project manager, I fill my schedule as the choice projects come. If I can't block the time to help you the way you need it, I won't say yes. That's the way I work.

I base my fees on how much of my time you want (weekly one hour checkins, bi-weekly half day sessions, or daily project management will all have different time and costs involved.

Hang on a sec'...

If you know you're interested, stop right here and schedule a Story Intensive call now, or send me a message on the Reach Out page. 

Clients work on a monthly retainer with me, (none of that hourly logging or nickel and diming.) I ask for a minimum three-month commitment to hold your spot.  I review some pages of your writing and offer detailed feedback each time we meet.
