3 Types of Book Coaching Strategy Sessions for Writers

Writing a Book? Schedule Your FREE Strategy Session!

If you're looking for a little writing strategy to help you with your book, you're in the right place! I am happy to announce that I now offer coaching calls for authors. I have three different strategy sessions for writers. Each of my free 15-minute phone consultations will help you get more specific on your idea, your title, or your logline -- all important elements you need to think about when writing a novel or a picture book.

Idea Validation

The first strategy session for writers that I offer is Idea Validation. An Idea Validation Strategy Session is perfect for those writers who have several ideas for the next book, but can't make up their mind. Perhaps one idea excites you, but you'd like a little validation before diving right in.

What if the idea isn't as marketable as your other ideas? Wouldn't it be nice to know which idea resonates the most with potential readers? This is not an idea brainstorming session to help you think of an idea for something to write about. In the end, go with the story that lives at the intersection of personal excitement and marketability.

Title Brainstorm

The second free strategy session I offer to authors is that of the Title Brainstorm. This session will get your gears a spinnin' with many ideas for a great working title. Whether you already have the book finished or you are just getting started, a good title will help grab the attention of an editor.

Yes, chances are very high that the title will get changed, and that's okay, but if you don't have a great title to capture an agent's attention, you might not make that far. Let me help churn out some title ideas for you. They don't call me the "Title Machine" for nothing!

Logline Creation

Lastly, I offer assistance with your 1-sentence logline, or pitch. The one-sentence logline is the quick summary of what your book is about. It's enticing, engaging, and makes people want to read the book. There's a simple formula for writing a logline and I'll take you through it to help you write a logline that you can use in your query letter.

Even if you're not ready to submit yet, writing a logline will help you define your book better so that you can succinctly tell someone what your story is about. If you can't do that in one sentence, your story structure might need a little help. But then again, there's an art form to writing a logline for a novel (or a picture book).

What Happens During a Strategy Session?

We'll introduce ourselves to each other with a quick hello. I'll ask you about your book, and we'll talk about ideas, titles, or loglines. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Be sure to schedule your free 15-minute book coaching strategy session (ie. phone consultation) with Christie for the best time that suits your busy schedule.
