Do you have a a gem of an idea, but aren’t sure how to pull it off? Perhaps you're 200 pages into writing your book, but suddenly feel completely lost and have no idea how to make the story hang together.
Or maybe the structure of imposed deadlines and the support of a seasoned, award-winning author will make all the difference between dabbling in writing and finally completing your manuscript.
I am here to help you through every step of your book-writing journey—from creating a solid outline and getting you started, to providing a map of the book-writing process and offering craft and creative generation sessions along the way.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
- Once you register, you will gain access to your personal workspace where you can schedule our 1-on-1 sessions on my personal calendar.
- One week before our scheduled session you will upload up to 50 pages of your work (double-spaced and 12-point font, please!).
- I read your work, make comments and prepare one page of notes, which I upload to your workspace before for our session.
- We meet and discuss your work and any questions you may have. The goal is to provide clarity and to help determine next steps on your writing journey.
- A recording of our Zoom session is uploaded to your own personal Dropbox to review at your convenience.
Sure, you will finish your book. But Kristin will also help you to find your purpose, understand why you're here and empower you to live your truth.

We each have something unique to offer the world. I had an impulse to write a book and share something I knew deep inside, but was having a hard time articulating. It was getting lost in the jumble of 10,000 thoughts in my busy day-to-day! The process of writing with Kristin helped me to organize my ideas, which accelerated my inner transformation and deepened my understanding of my true offering. Our work together gave solid form to my insights, which I now share widely via The Possibility of Today, in my work and with clients that I coach (it helped me to land a literary agent as well!). Work with Kristin! Sure, you will finish your book. But maybe even more important—she will help you to find your purpose, understand why you're here and empower you to live your truth.
Kristin is a gifted editor and book coach. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
My memoir was over 200 pages when I asked for Kristin’s critique. I was pleased with what I had written, but felt challenged by how to weave the story, time and events together. Kristin has an incredible sense of narrative structure and was able to help me identify and develop a story arc that bought my experiences to life in a meaningful and compelling way. She helped me finesse unclear passages and directed me to areas that needed additional research. I was amazed at how quickly Kristin was able to grasp and articulate both Eastern and Western spiritual concepts (the book was a spiritual autobiography). She is deeply magnetized by the mystical side of life, which perhaps is one reason our professional relationship became a close personal friendship. Kristin is a gifted editor and book coach. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
