Coaching & Mentoring – Initial Consultation

We have spoken to authors at all stages in the book writing process. We know what it’s like to be on your journey – all of our coaches and mentors are published authors with experience of the process of getting from an idea to a finished book.

This initial consultation session can be undertaken over the phone, on Skype, or in person at our offices in Cardiff. In it you can talk with someone who is knowledgeable, approachable, and understanding of your situation.

The process is as follows:

  1. We will conduct a short questionnaire with you to identify your specific needs, and what you want to achieve from a consultation.
  2. We match your needs with a suitably experienced coach or mentor, so you can ask questions and discuss ideas with someone who has relevant experience.
  3. We arrange a mutually convenient time for you to meet, either in person or virtually as you prefer.
  4. You send any materials, web links, or other references that will provide background to your conversation at least 2 working days prior.
  5. Your coach or mentor will review your needs in advance.
  6. You meet for 90 minutes for a laser-targeted discussion.

What happens next?

For some people this one-off consultation is enough to answer your questions, or to develop an idea.

For others more coaching may be requested, or there may be a need for additional training or information. If your coach or mentor is unable to immediately answer a question they will follow up with the information you want.
