Writing a Great Book Requires a Great Strategy
Why work with me?
Before I was an editor, I was an advertising professional trying to write a book while juggling the demands of a career and a family. Working as a journalist and a copy director for a major American designer had taught me how to sit down and write, so when I decided to write a book I thought, You got this, Catherine.
After fifty-thousand words my all-is-lost moment hit: My manuscript didn’t work.
In my quest to level up I trained with Shawn Coyne, author of The Story Grid: What Good Editors Know and became one of 49 Story Grid Certified Editors. Today, I help busy professionals with proven processes for moving good ideas from their heads and into a book that readers will love.
Books have the power to change lives, and skillful storytelling that sways minds and hearts is the most effective way to communicate your idea and leave a lasting impression. Unlike most business book editors, I know story.
As a creative and marketing professional with over 20 years of experience, I understand how to streamline creative projects to get the job done. I can help you clarify your main point, your book’s structure and outline, and how to speak to your target market. I’m also an experienced creative catalyst, so if you get stuck along the way I know how to help you push through any block and tap your best work.
Working with me fast-tracks your timeline for writing a book that delivers on your goals, whether that’s establishing your brand or authority, sharing your expertise, or selling more goods or services.
If you’re serious about writing a book, we should talk.
