You, amazing person, are writing a book! I'll help you plot, publish, & build your author platform.

If the thought of getting your book published scares you, fret not!

With Plotting, Publishing, & Platform Project Management, you can get your book in front of your readers, build your list, and start making sales in no time!

I’m here to guide enthusiastic aspiring authors to writing and publishing their books.

You’re ready to tell your story.

But maybe you’re frustrated. By where to start. By writer’s block. By how to even get your book in front of the readers who will love it.

You cringe whenever whenever someone asks you, “So, what’s your book about? When can I read it?”

Let’s change that. Getting your book into the world truly can be painless and pleasurable. It truly can lead to rave reviews and consistent sales.

We’ll get you there. 

Let’s bring some magic to the publishing process.

Tell me if this sounds familiar...

  • Pulling your hair out because of all the different options for publishing your book
  • Afraid to even make a move because what if you do it wrong?
  • Stuck in edits, or tangled up in plot holes that keep you from writing “The End”
  • Panicking any time a well-meaning friend asks, “Is your book done yet? When can I read it?”
  • Just don’t know where to start and want someone to guide you through this overwhelming process the right way

How amazing will it feel to finally have your book out in the world, loved by readers? To hold it in your hand, and see readers holding it in theirs?

A lot of new (and old!) writers really struggle with getting the story they want to tell down on paper. THEN they struggle getting it into the world. Being an author ain’t always easy!

Your frustration is REAL and VALID. Some writers have even given up completely on their novels because they didn’t think they could do it.

But you aren’t going to be one of those writers.

Go from feeling like you’ll never see your novel published to holding it in your hands.

Here's how easy it can be...

  • Finishing your novel in the next 6 months and being proud of the work you’ve done
  • Getting your book published to Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, libraries, and other retailers—both U.S. and international
  • Posting your first Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram shot of you grinning, holding your book in your hands, and your followers cheering for you
  • Knowing the foundations are in place for you to sell your book, get paid, and start building your author platform
  • Having a beautiful author website where you can direct fans to read more of your work, sign up for your mailing list, and get on the waitlist for your next book
  • Actually having a mailing list—and knowing how to use it!
  • Having your author presence set up on Amazon Authors, Goodreads, and Bookbub
  • Knowing someone has your back and is here to support you on this exciting (and sometimes scary, nerve wracking, and daunting!) journey
  • Feeling confident in your work, knowing that anytime someone asks you if your book is out, you can proudly say, “Yes, and here’s the link where you can check it out!”

everything fell into place

"I was literally crying several nights a week over my book. The story was SO CLOSE to what I wanted it to be, but it was just not working. Kinda flat. Holly helped me brainstorm the plot and suddenly everything fell into place. I'm so grateful."

That’s where Plotting, Publishing, & Platform Project Management (P3PM) comes in!

You know you’ve got a BRILLIANT book that readers will LOVE, but getting it out into the world isn’t easy. I can take you from a frustrated, confused, and “aspiring” author to a published author, proud of the book you’ve created.

That’s exactly what other clients have achieved when they’ve worked with me for their author platform and publishing needs, and it’s exactly what you can achieve, too.

So, what next?

Sometimes, all you need is a little guidance, a helping hand, and a friend who gets it. Plotting, Publishing, and Platform Project Management can be that for you.

You can get a writing coach anywhere, and you can scour Google to DIY your publishing and platform needs, but you can’t Google ‘How to be less stressed and actually enjoy publishing my book’.

Well, you can, but all you’ll get is a lackluster blog post about ‘meditate and find a critique partner’ or something. 🙂

beyond my expectation

"I was so fortunate to have Holly get my book out into the publishing world. As a self published author, I needed help and she went beyond my expectation. I can't wait to work with Holly again on my next book."

And how do you make the right choice for you?

What makes me different?

I am a certified Project Management Professional—which means I’ve got literal years of experience running successful projects, I’m a fellow published indie author, and I’m a big believer in your book.

Yes, even though I haven’t even heard of it, yet!

Because I know the deep, agonizing yearning to tell a story—to tell it the right way. I have suffered the same hair-pulling years of frustration you are suffering now (13 years, in fact!). I’ve had those thoughts of not being good enough because I couldn’t figure out how to fix something in my book. I’ve felt defeated, alone, and hopeless with a WIP, and I don’t want another writer to ever feel that way again.

This is what I wish I’d had when I was where you are: a friend who cared and had actually done what I was trying to do. Together, we can help you skip the hopeless parts and get right to the hopeful ones.
