What’s included in the Book Coaching Program?
You get everything you need to confidently write, publish, and market your book. Literally everything.
Are the workshops held virtually or in-person?
The three days Authors spend with us are pivotal, and will get you a level of clarity and momentum that cannot be duplicated any other way. Right now, we only offer workshops in-person.
You will leave after three days with all of this done:
- Book Positioning
- Writing Plan
- Editing Plan
- Chapter deadlines
- Editing deadlines
- Fears brought up and addressed
What support do I get after the workshop?
After the workshop, there are three primary avenues of support:
- Weekly Group Coaching Calls: These occur every Tuesday at 12:30pm Eastern Time. The Scribe Senior Editorial team is on the calls to help with any questions any authors have about anything. For most authors, these calls act as accountability and commiseration calls. Basically, authors use them as places to see their friends, learn from one another, and make sure they are on track.
- Three One-on-One Editor Consults: Throughout the book journey, you can book up to three half-hour individual consults with an editor. Authors use these calls to troubleshoot roadblocks along the writing process, get feedback to improve their outline, or review a chapter of their work.
Here’s the main thing you need to know: we will do whatever it takes to help you write a great book, and get it published.
Is editing included? How does the editing work?
Yes, editing is included. Once you finish the rough draft of your manuscript, then you hand it to us for a complete content edit. Your manuscript will be fully edited by a member of our editing team.
As to how we edit, we tell our authors this:
“We will hurt your feelings before we let you publish a bad book.”
Our first goal in this edit is to ensure your book is not bad. If it is, we will tell you where it’s bad and how to fix it.
Once we know it’s not bad (and they are rarely bad), then the goal is to help you take it from good to great.
We will push you to write the best book possible, because our name is on the book as well as yours.
Is publishing included? How does publishing work?
No. Our professional publishing services are charge separately.
Do I have to take a year, or can I go faster?
Authors get to pay for the program over a year, but you can go as fast as you want. We’ve had authors turn in their manuscript two months after their workshop, and then have their book published and out only five months after that (for a 7 month start to finish time).
The only catch is that in order for us to fully publish your book, you must be paid in full.
