Book Coaching and Author Platform Building
Start writing your book and helping people to find it today!
The secret cure to writer’s block is having someone in your corner, ready to prompt and prod you toward your goals. I help you with the frustration of trying to pull the words out of your head and getting them written. Continuous feedback and small steps will get your book written much faster than going it alone.
Let’s write your book with your ideal reader in mind – right from the start! Whether you’re a pantser or a planner, we’ll walk you through discovering your book concept and guide you in bringing your voice to the page.
Writing the book is just the first step – you need to make sure you’re building an author platform so folks can find you, identify you as the expert you are, and engage with you (proving ot publishers that you’re the real deal). From your first website, to SEO strategy and content, I am your in-house tech support for building your online platform as an author.
The world needs your book. You know this – you’ve known it for years! – and I know it too. As your book coach, I’m not just offering coaching, publishing expertise, and tech support: I’m here to cheer you on to write the book YOU want to write. I love this work precisely because of my own background as an ACT practitioner and I don’t want to reshape your book just so it can be easily digested by the general public – I want to help you write the book YOU want to write.
Hey there, I’m Leann Harris
Podcast Host and Book Coach for helping professionals (ie therapists, coaches, teachers, etc). Besides being a coach trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, pure coaching as well as specific Book Coaching training, I’m a lifelong reader of all things self-help, personal development, business, and creativity.
As your book coach I can cut through the chaff to what you’re really trying to say, even if it’s awkwardly worded or filled with jargon. My secret super power is helping people stay true to their voice, but say it in a way an 8th grader could understand.
