Book Coaching: Prices and Packages

Book coaching is an investment you make in yourself to write with joy, complete your book, and create the life you truly want. Throughout coaching, you’ll receive resources and support for YOUR specific writing goals.

Coaching fees are often tax-deductible for people who use coaching to improve business and professional skills! Check with your accountant for details.

Do you want an ongoing book coaching package (the best value) or a one-time session?

ONGOING BOOK COACHING for is for women who:
  • Want to smash writer’s block and zoom productivity
  • Have big, wonderful goals such as completing a novel, a nonfiction book, or another large writing project
  • Want consistent, empathetic support and tailored resources while writing, seeking the best agent/publisher for their manuscripts, or self-publishing.

Note: All prices are in U.S. dollars. A coaching month is four weeks (28 days), and a three-month commitment is requested for each package. I offer a full satisfaction guarantee for ongoing coaching. The benefits and joy my clients get through coaching are what make me a delighted coach!

Some coaching time can be used for editing or critiquing as you wish, but true coaching is a full-fledged support system and isn’t designed just for edits. If your main need is editing, you may wish to seek a freelance editor instead of a coach.

“Every time I put the phone down after speaking to Kate, I am grateful for the decision I made in selecting her as my coach. Conversations with her are tailor-made workshops where I learn about the craft of writing, using my own work as an example.

Kate and I set goals and have deadlines for accomplishing them. Every week I’m answerable to her on the most desirable questions: Did I make the most of my creativity? Did I do my best? How can I do better? The excitement here is that my novel, which was once a vague idea, is now coming to life.”

— M. Arifin


If you want coaching, you want meaningful results. Those results need your commitment. Most of the projects we’ll undertake together will require at least three months to complete, so if you hire me to be your book coach, know that you’ll be making a commitment of at least three months to yourself and your goals.


You can pay by either credit card or electronic check through PayPal, and convenient payment plans are available. Payment must be made before coaching begins.

I Guarantee Your Satisfaction With Ongoing Coaching

No one can guarantee the specific results someone will get from coaching, but I do guarantee your satisfaction with the book coaching process. If at any time you’re not content with the direction of coaching, simply let me know. We’ll take the steps needed to return power to the coaching relationship. Your openness about what you want for your life and from coaching is vital to our ongoing success.

If you feel our restructuring is not effective and let me know that, and if at the end of our initial three months together you’ve taken all the actions you agreed to, you’ve followed through with a 100% commitment to your progress, and you’re not satisfied with how you were coached, I’ll return the coaching fees you’ve paid me.


Bottom line: I want you to be a happy and successful client.

“I had not given myself the gift of a coach before. I needed support, focus and some advanced expertise for manuscript submissions, queries, etc. Kate was a surprise and a delight! Her assistance was always just what I needed. For insight and information to support your writing, I can’t recommend Kate highly enough!”

Could one-time, special-issue coaching be the right choice for you? Absolutely, if:

  • You have something specific you’d like to work on and you believe one or two sessions will be enough, or…
  • You just need advice or a sounding board for a single writing issue, question, or concern, or…
  • You need quick help for a time-sensitive choice.

One-time coaching is $225 for 40 minutes. Simply email me and we’ll set up the meeting. I look forward to helping you!
