Welcome! I’m excited to be working with you. During the time that we work together, my goal is to support your growth and help you achieve the goals you set as you become an author. I find these agreements help us understand how to work together and communicate authentically so you get the maximum value from our work together. (These agreements cover book consulting and coaching; you can add extra coaching sessions and publishing services such as editing and design later.) After that, the publishing process starts (and is a separate cost and time commitment).

~Amy Collette, Book Coach

Author Agreements

 As a participant in the Unleash Your Inner Author Coaching or Group Course program, you: 

  • Commit to the writing and study goals that you set, which may involve several hours (5-10) per week.
  • Commit to being a listener and participant in the program. Other authors’ problems and epiphanies may be equally relevant for you.
  • Understand that some of the discussions and/or exercises may be uncomfortable, and be willing to explore that.
  • Commit to show up with curiosity and an open mind to sessions.
  • Understand that your writing and other work are your responsibility alone, and commit to undertaking them to the best of your ability.
  • Commit 100% to keeping the confidentiality of others.
