What's Missing in your Nearly Finished Book?
Judy Cullins c. 2005

Bookcoaching clients come to me at different stages of writing their books. The ones who start from ground zero with a coach and learn what goes into each chapter to make it more readable and sell better. The ones who have been writing a long time, a year or so even. They often leave the project because they ran out of gas--got stuck what to do next. They may think they can manifest their book dream now and make millions.

You want to build your reputation. You want to use your book to brand your business and attract new clients. If your book is almost ready and you think it's ready for a publisher or self-publishing, think again!

You may just need a line editor who can certainly use "grammar check" and put those commas where they belong. But, if you need to know if your book will sell well, you need to get feedback on a few parts of your book so far. A sample chapter, a table of contents, these are just the beginning of what you need to hit the top selling book charts. If you contact a professional bookcoach or consultant, she will notice if you answered your audience's major questions that led them to buy your book..

Ask yourself, “does my book benefit my audience in each chapter so they will finish it, finish the book and recommend it to others?”
