Do you have a book coach? Have you ever used one? Do you know what a book coach does?
A book coach is exactly that—someone with knowledge and experience who will help you with all aspects of your book:
Advice on cover design
Help with formatting
Query letter assistance
Now of course, you have the phone-a-friend option, and many of you belong to different groups, online or in person, and all these things are discussed and hashed out and debated. But for a more personal touch, you may want to hire a book coach.
Many, including myself, don’t require contracts or long-term plans. I charge $35 per hour for book assistance, and the topics can be any listed above, or even something else you might think of that requires any help.
I usually meet with clients locally, in person, but I can also do Skype or messaging, or even email or phone conversations.
Sometimes it can be very helpful to have one-on-one coaching, tailored to you and your book, instead of general advice that you might get from online posts or conferences or blogs.
