Book Coaching

Many people get stuck when they try to write. They may not know where to start. They may have great ideas, but not know how to organize them into a coherent structure. They may know what they want to write, but not know how to write it well. Portland can help.

She works with first-time writers as well as the more skilled, focusing on topics such as personal growth, dating and relationships, natural health and wellness, alternative and complementary medicine, psychology, spirituality, the healing arts, and the fine arts.

As a seasoned writer, Portland can help you:

  • Clarify your concept, title, readership, and other important aspects of your article, book, etc.
  • Structure your book in an engaging way.
  • Answer questions that arise during the writing process about organization, content, tone, voice, and more.
  • Remain accountable and make steady progress.
  • Develop the self-confidence to write and finish your book.

Her coaching programs range from $450 to $1,500 month.

I loved working with Portland on my eBook, Find Real Love After 40. She immediately made me feel at ease. As a writing coach and editor, she’s all of these things: professional, fun, thorough, intuitive, detail-oriented, dedicated, and patient. Portland’s a gifted writer who knows how to help writers not only clarify their thoughts, but also find and express their own voice. I recommend her wholeheartedly!

It has been a pleasure working with Portland on our first book. Portland has an organized and professional approach to her work. Her ability to ask insightful questions and challenge us regularly for detail and supporting information around the subject matter has been an essential and valuable asset throughout this process. Her writing is deeply thoughtful and carefully constructed to convey factual information alongside personal stories and experiences. Portland is a great communicator and kept us informed at every step.

I wanted to revise and update my popular self-study workbook and course “Quick Start to Kick Start Your Book,” but I could never seem to find the time to get it done. I hired Portland to edit it, as well as interview a few of my former clients and write their stories into the book as examples. As a writer myself, it was critical to me that those stories really sing. I knew Portland would do a great job because she knows how to interview people and get to the heart of their stories. Portland did a wonderful job. I loved the editing she did as well. I’m so proud of the new version of “Quick Start to Kick Start Your Book.” I highly recommend Portland’s writing and editing services.
