Getting started with your book: clarity calls and coaching for business owners
Got a brilliant idea for a business book – and a head full of questions?! I’m here to help
“I want to write a business book, but how do I get started?”
You have a book in you – and it’s itching to get out!”
But you have so many questions!
How do you self-publish on Amazon? How do you get into a writing routine? Is your idea even good enough? What about editing and proofreading? What are beta readers and why do you need them? How do you fit writing a book around your busy career? Do you need an ISBN? What about cover design? How do you create a buzz around your book once it’s out there in the world?
Where do you even start?!
How about talking to a business owner who’s been through the process – twice! – and has two award-winning, bestselling books to show for it?
Someone who can provide clarity, accountability and a clear outline of the process, as well as unravelling the ideas in your head!
Let’s start with why writing a brilliant business book is a great idea…
Why write a business book?
Writing a book can transform your business. I know – because it happened to me.
I self-published my first book, Survival Skills for Freelancers, after 20 years as a freelance copywriter and editor.
I built a buzz around the launch and it paid off. You couldn’t set foot on social media during launch week without tripping over posts sharing five-star reviews and images of the book.
People loved it, and still do.
I quickly found myself in demand to deliver high-profile talks, to share my experiences on podcasts (I’ve guested on over 60) and to be interviewed for publications – including Forbes! (You’ll find them here.)
Done well, a business book can position you as the go-to expert in your field.
Done badly, the process of writing a business book is an expensive waste of time.
How do you avoid adding to the mountain of mediocre business books out there?
I’m here to help.

What my clients say...
“Sarah has magical book powers!
“We spoke earlier this year when I was feeling a lot of clarity about my book concept, but a lot of uncertainty about the format and the details.
“Sarah was able to help untangle my thoughts and was a brilliant sounding board.
I don’t think she could quite believe how much progress I had made the next time we spoke!”
