feel supported while writing your book
Get yourself professional advice and supportive guidance.
You feel that there’s a book inside of you, ready to be written. A book on your (spiritual) entrepreneurship, research, or artistry. But you also feel that you need personal advice and guidance to bring your book to a successful conclusion. Maybe you have experienced already a writer’s block or a tendency to apologize yourself (‘No time, sorry!’) or to give up to soon.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
Whatever is your excuse for not writing, know that you are not alone. There are a hundred thousand excuses to keep you from writing, and millions of destructive thoughts that can hinder your writing process. Really, you won’t be the first writer who forever puts down the pen after an enthusiastic start.
I HELP YOU THROUGH OBSTACLES
My coaching helps you through obstacles, excuses and so called ‘achy days’. I give you answers to your questions, and show you that most of your reasons for not writing can easily be thrown overboard.
After each session your writing will be better. And not only that. I will ensure that you, as a writer, will grow, learn, renew and transform.
COACHING ON IKARIA
Coaching sessions are usually done through Skype and e-mail. However, I also offer you the possibility to combine writing and relaxing: live coaching sessions while you are staying on Ikaria, the Greek island where I live. These live sessions will be fully integrated in the writing process and will be done at my home, or in your hotel.
no excuses for not writing
If you start writing a lot, you will soon experience that there are so many different ways of writing, as Eskimos have names for snow. The same goes for having reasons not to write, by the way.
You can write to share, to remember, to free yourself from something, to process hard times, to express love or friendship or political and philosophical opinions. You can write letters, text messages, e-mails, articles, poetry, essays, blogs, theater monologues, interviews, diary pages, biographies, fairy tales, cartoons and what more ... so if you tell me ‘I can’t write’, what kind of writing is it that you are referring to?
I tell you: you too can write. Your pen is simply an extension of your hand. And writing is just a matter putting that hand in motion. Maybe you just haven’t found your voice yet, or the style or genre that suits you?

the way i work
Each month you get 3 times 1 hour coaching and comprehensive written feedback. The coaching hours will be done through Skype, or in a live meeting whenever you are in Ikaria.
First of all we'll set up a structure for your book. This is the most important step, which will take two to three sessions.
Then it's your turn to start writing, supported by the structure. I will provide you regularly of oral and written feedback so that you can take giant leaps forward in your writing process.
Please note that the above price applies for a manuscript of maximum 30.000 words. Editing or ghostwriting is not included.
I will coach your book if
You have a powerful message. I preferably take in books of spiritually inspired artists and entrepreneurs, whose life, work and/or business are a positive example to the world.
You are on the path to more awareness. Your message adds in its own way more awareness to the world. I love to give voice to authenticity, to perseverance, boldness and strength, to frank, daring and compelling stories.
Most of 'my' writers had to take serious risks in order to become what they are now. It's my mission to help them finding their writing voice, because through them so many readers will get their wake up call. It's my dream that together we can dance the world a great deal lighter.
