Author Coaching for Self-Publishing
Learning that you don’t have to write
your book alone is pretty liberating
I offer a unique author coaching experience. With a customized plan I will meet you where you are and walk alongside you through your book writing season.
Where do I start? If it weren't for Andrea I would not be a published author. God put her in my life at just the right time. I had written my book 6 years before meeting her and was going to let it sit in the "saved" file on my computer for the rest of my life. From the very first time I mentioned this book to her she encouraged me and helped me overcome an incredible amount of self-doubt and fear. Every time I got off the phone with her I felt encouraged and like a better person as she shared her wisdom and encouragement with me.
As to be expected with having written the book 6 years prior, there were revisions and corrections needed to create a consistent and error free book and Andrea assisted with those steps to get it ready for publishing. Andrea is not just an amazing editor, she's an amazing person. She is a beacon of light and encouragement and is her client's biggest cheerleader. She believed in me when I'm not sure anybody else did. She helped me to think big, she held my hand, and she gave me the wings to fly.
I could go on an on but let me just end with a huge THANK YOU to Andrea for being there for me when I called her frantic with questions at decision times, being there on a Sunday night when I had last minute questions before publication, making me feel like I have what it takes, and most of all for helping me to accomplish my dream!

WHAT YOU WILL GAIN
I am a catalyst to get you to author, AKA person screaming
"OMG I finished writing my book!"
I will teach you many things to get you there.
We will first figure out where you are on this journey and I will meet you where you are and help you to get over the finish line.
I prefer a custom approach because everyone is not starting from the same place and everyone does not have the same goals. Also, we all have different learning styles.
We are not a one-size-fits-all shop to reaching your goals.
You will gain the benefit of accountability
You will gain publishing knowledge
You will eliminate the feelings of isolation during this process by gaining a partner
You will learn tactics to combat overwhelm
You will learn tools and rituals to become and stay organized
You will learn how to create shifts in mindset to stay mentally strong during the process
You will learn techniques to meet your deadlines
You will have your hand held every step of the way
You will gain empowerment
“In union there is strength.” Aesop
I was at a place in my first book where I could not get past chapter seven ... this book was personal and the process in writing it was very emotional. After meeting Andrea of A.C. Jasmin Proofreading I decided to hire her as my book coach to help me get “unstuck.” After applying her expertise, I finished the writing portion of my book and decided to hire her as my editor as well!
From day one Andrea’s professionalism, attention to detail, promptness to deadlines and pushing me to stay on track in order to publish my first book was needed and appreciated! I cannot thank her enough for her kindness during the process and having an amazing personality definitely didn’t hurt at all.
If you are “stuck” in the book writing process, need a book coach or editing, I HIGHLY recommend A.C Jasmin Proofreading. It was the BEST investment that I could have ever made.

The first month of partnering will be four sessions for every new client. After the first month we will then, together, determine if moving to three or two meetings a month makes sense.
