Finish Your Book Coaching Group

You dream of being an author and seeing your name on the cover of a book. People tell you “You should write a book!” You know there’s a book inside you that will help readers.

But you can’t seem to make time to finish the darn thing!

As persistent as the dream is, the fears that accompany the dream are just as powerful. All your other pressing obligations take precedence over sitting down to do the deep thinking that books require.

It happens all the time – our brilliant ideas for a book, the book we so desperately want to write – get waylaid by all the other important stuff.

How do you win the battle between the part of you that wants desperately to write a book and the part of you that puts other things first?

You get help. Professional, reliable, been-there-done-that help. It is vital to have an ally who can walk you through the process.

Affordable, reliable help is here.

“I have an offer to publish my book series, and I owe so much of it to working with Cynthia. I was having trouble staying accountable to myself for putting together a book proposal. Working with Cynthia, I gained accountability, great ideas, and the confidence to keep moving forward.

I was so pleased with how Cynthia helped me achieve my goals. It was wonderful! Thank you, Cynthia!”

What finishing your book matters

Everyone has their own motivation to finish their book, but here are some of the opportunities your book may open up for you:

  • a solid position as an expert in your industry
  • paid speaking engagements
  • other book deals
  • syndicated columns
  • possibilities to repurpose the content of your book for classes or licensing opportunities
  • collaborations and partnerships that make your work more fun and easy
  • the opportunity to live the kind of lifestyle you want
  • developing new projects that are important to you.

My clients are securing speaking gigs and relishing the credibility and visibility a book gives them. And, they’re depositing money in the bank from book sales and the opportunities that they’re gaining from being an author.

“I thought I was hiring Cynthia to help me organize the structure of my book and be a pace-setter for completing it.  However, Cynthia’s coaching turned out to be so much more: she helped me break through the clutter in my writing processes and avoid the pitfalls that took me off the course to finishing my book.

Throughout our coaching work. Cynthia helped me ensure that I always remained always focused on the right writing activities, saving me countless hours and untold frustration on the path to completing my book.

Cynthia was a tremendous resource and ally and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who’s struggled to get their ideas on paper.” —Scott Pollack

I’ve been coaching writers of all genres and levels since 1999. It’s been a privilege to help people get started with their writing and to help them birth books. My author hall of fame includes:

This may not be the right group for you if…

  • You don’t already have an idea in mind for your book, even a glimmer of one.
  • You aren’t able to make room on your calendar to write your book now.
  • You and your critic aren’t willing to be called out when you surrender to procrastination and resistance.
  • You don’t believe in investing in support to achieve your goals.

“Before Cynthia Morris began coaching me, I was floundering. I wanted to write a book on how to navigate a complex, often-uncaring medical system, but I had no idea how to even write a book.

Cynthia helped me overcome the physical and emotional hurdles of such a task. Now I am proud to say that, thanks to Cynthia’s help, my book is complete, and I’m seeking a publisher.” —Beth Gainer, Author, Calling the Shots

My Finish Your Book Coaching Group is unique. You’ll get attention from an author and certified coach who has been there and knows how to lead you there. In this coaching group, I’ll share  my tried and true coaching practices to help you finally finish your book.

Writing a novel? This group is for you. Writing an e-book? Yep, this will help you finish it. Writing a memoir? Indeed, you are welcome and will get a lot out of this. A non-fiction book related to your business? Oh yes, we can help.

This group is for anyone writing a long-form work (otherwise known as a book) who wants to get it done sooner rather than later. This group will accelerate your process and make it easier to get your words on the page.

You’ve tried the cheap, lone wolf route

No matter how much you avoid it, the urge to write a book persists. You’ve valiantly tried many things to honor this impulse. You have:

  • taken classes
  • joined online forums
  • proclaimed your intention on Facebook and Twitter
  • read books about how to write a book
  • read books like the book you want to write.

These approaches seem useful, but rarely do they bring you across the finish line. Frankly, cheap solutions bring cheap results – no investment means no book. It doesn’t take long for that insistent, negative voice to convince us that watching TV or scrolling the Facebook feed one more time is a much better way to spend your creative energy.

But the problem is, your book idea simply won’t go away. It keeps coming back. You keep seeing a need for it in the world. Or…worst case scenario, you see your brilliant idea put into the world by someone else. Argh! There’s nothing as frustrating as being beaten to it by someone else.

Truth is, writing a book is a big deal. There are thousands of people out there who want to write a book but a very small percentage actually pull it off.

Some days you may think you’re crazy for even wanting to write a book. Your idea, well, it’s kind of different.

Of course it’s different. If it weren’t, it wouldn’t be worth writing. Authors stand among those who lead the world to think and live in new ways. We need those new ideas more than ever. And that’s worth battling against all the inner and outer obstacles that conspire against us doing our great work.

Make it easy on yourself and get the help you need to be the author you know you can be.

“Cynthia, because of your encouragement and guidance, I’m watching my book continue to be my best selling product.

I hired you as a writing coach, but you’ve been so much more. You’ve coached me through personal challenges as well. I’m always motivated after I talk with you. Because of that, business is booming and I feel like I know myself much better than before I hired you.

Your coaching is invaluable to anyone who wants to get things done and needs accountability. Thank you.” —Alyson Stanfield, Art Biz Coach

What it takes to write a book

Although there’s a rumored 82% of all Americans who want to write a book, only a very small percentage will pull it off. I’ve coached hundreds of writers since 1999, and while everyone is different, they all share the same qualities:

  • they clearly understand the ‘why’ behind writing the book.
  • they figure out what works for them to do their best work and stick with it.
  • they are highly motivated to finish their book and see its impact in the world.
  • they borrow from success in other areas of their life to build confidence as a writer.

You can share these qualities, too. And you can be that author making a difference in the lives of your readers. I can help.

Your book coach

I come at this from two powerful angles – as a certified coach with over fourteen years’ experience coaching writers and as a published author who has repeatedly finished and published books and e-books.

I’ve spent hundreds of hours in conversation with my clients and I know the patterns and problems that every single writer faces. My coaching skills allow me to help you customize a writing practice that allows you to get your book done in your way.

I stay on top of publishing industry trends – not easy in today’s shifting publishing world. I am able to point my clients to the right resources at the right time.

I’ve been writing and publishing on this topic since early 2001. My own book – Create Your Writer’s Life – has been called ‘the best book on writing’ by people who’ve read many of them. I’ve published five e-books, two blogs and a historical novel, Chasing Sylvia Beach. I know the writing process – both fiction and non-fiction – from the inside.

The value of the money and potential that your book will open up is extraordinary. We can’t even imagine all the things awaiting us on the other side of the finish line – but that’s okay, because we’re ready to focus on your book now. Those other goodies will come later.

“My work with Cynthia was phenomenal. I hired Cynthia to help me with a book project – my first book! I was excited and nervous and wanted to do it the right way.

I had done what I thought I had done extensive work building a solid foundation. But Cynthia’s candid, honest and thorough feedback took my book to a much deeper level. That allowed me to be proud to publish it.

Cynthia really guided me throughout this process. She helped me to discover my true self and what my work was really worth and what my project meant to me and to those I am called to serve.

My time with Cynthia was so enriching and I was sorry to see it end. I would not have been able to finish this without Cynthia.

If you are considering working with Cynthia, don’t hesitate, don’t delay, stop analyzing and just go ahead and do it. The results that you will receive will be far greater than your investment. It will be a journey that you won’t regret. I am sure you’ll be happy you hired Cynthia. I know I am.” —Janice Johnson, Ministry Marketing Mentor
