Author Coaching

champagne_glassDo you want to finish your book but find you’re coming up with one excuse after another?  Since being certified as a business and life coach by CoachU, I’ve been coaching entrepreneurs for over a decade, helping them get the job done, set up processes, and improve their marketing efforts.

My style is pragmatic and holistic. We’ll focus on what you need to do to get done, and also do a deep dive on things getting in your way to free your creativity and help your story rock!

Create Your Own Author Coaching

This unique version of coaching allows you to control the process.  Here’s how it works:

  • You decide what goal you want to reach in a 3- to 6-month time frame.
  • You choose whether you want a weekly 20-minute call or a call twice a month for 30-40 minutes.
  • You decide what you want to pay me every month, with $25 the minimum payment.

Then we get it done! (Champagne not included!)

Formatting for e-books

If you want to self-publish, you need to convert your book to Smashwords, Kindle and ePub formats…or you can hire me to convert your ebook format  for you.

I format your book to be acceptable to the premium status of Smashwords as well as Kindle and ePub (Barnes and Noble). I guarantee my work. As long as you don’t change the document before uploading it, I will fix any problems at no additional charge.

Fees for a fiction book with a small table of contents and a few pictures or illustrations is $45 and must be paid in advance. Formatting credit must be given. Please contact me at casey AT to discuss.

If you have any of the following items in your book, there will be extra charges.  Please contact me at casey AT to get an estimate:

  • Language other than English
  • More than 25% of the pages have special formatting (italics, bold, etc.)
  • More than 15 entries in your table of contents
  • More than 5 pictures or illustrations in your content

Formatting does not include formatting for your cover. Please work with your graphic designer to come up with the following formats prior to upload.

For formatting examples, please see the sample pages in the Tour Guide to the Wineries of the Santa Cruz Mountains at:
