Whether you have published several book or are brand new, an experienced Author Coach can help you navigate the manuscript development process and guide you through the writing process.
Your Author Coach can begin work at any time in your book process but the sooner the better so you can get a good plan to follow throughout planning and writing each chapter.
The creative process is both lonely and collaborative. You write alone but the more wise counsel you get from a Coach, the better your writing experience will be and the stronger your manuscript will become. Ask your prospective Author Coach for references and referrals and then talk with as many of these folks as possible so you can get a sense of how he/she works with clients. Spend time talking with the coaches you are considering so you can gauge the energy you create together. And finally, pray about it. Ask God to lead you to the best person who can help you. A good thing along these spiritual lines is to pray with the Coach. Listen for his/her heart.
There are several ways Author Coaches are compensated for the work they do including hourly fees, retainers, project fees and, in some cases revenue sharing when the book is published. It's best to get as detailed and specific a proposal for fees before you begin. "No Surprises" is a good motto to follow when you begin any working relationship but especially one as personal as working on your book together.
