What Is Your Vision?
You’ve seen “About Us” pages on plenty of websites. (We have one here.) This is NOT that page. This Is About You.
How would it feel to answer the question, “How do you know?” by saying…
Actually, I wrote the book on that.”
You’re the expert. Isn’t it time to own it?
That thing you do.
That thing that you discovered.
That cause you’re passionate about.
That insight you had – it solved a big problem and changed everything.
Nobody else did this. You did.
Worried you can’t finish your book? (Or can’t even start?)
Maybe you already wrote a book or two, and this time you’re just not feeling it?
Maybe you ask yourself things like:
- Do I need an agent?
- How complicated is self-publishing?
- Do I have a book, or is it really only just bits and pieces?
- How can I organize all my ideas and drafts into one cohesive, compelling whole?
- (And maybe sometimes) Is my writing even good enough?
Meanwhile, this book idea won’t leave you alone
You know the time is now to get it done.
The authors I work with know their reasons for writing their books.
When your book represents you accurately and fully, it becomes an integral part of your entire professional life, opening doors, enhancing your credibility, and communicating your position.
If your book brings you six- and seven-figure business, do you care if it’s a best-seller?
If your book gains the global attention for your cause that it deserves, does its sales ranking matter?
I didn’t think so.
What do your readers need to learn from you?
How can you help people with your message?
Are you ready to show the world where you stand?
I’m Anne M Carley and I work closely with experts like you to help draft, complete, and polish their breakthrough book.
I have seen over and over that when people feel they have the support of an experienced guide, they allow themselves to do their best, most authentic work.
My message to you is simple: You bring the expertise and desire. We guide you through the process, and work with you closely to make your book shine.
I’m also an editor. Like any good editor, I’ll polish your words, bringing them to vivid life in your own voice. Then I will also notice what’s missing. Together we’ll identify and celebrate the additional elements that belong in your book. We’ll open up your book’s meaning and significance. Are you ready to work with an editor who goes the extra distance?
How it works:
- One to one coaching sessions, scheduled as many per month as will make the most sense for your project and timeline.
- Accountability check-ins.
- Email access and support (ongoing).
- Team building support – Completing and publishing a book takes more than just the author and a coach. We help you assemble and manage the support team of experts you’ll need.
- New habit development. Our coaching responds to your needs and helps you to reframe the way you see and to overcome your inner obstacles. These changes can last a lifetime.
- Checklists, worksheets, and reference resources to keep you oriented in your progress and up to date on your overall goals.
- FLOAT • Becoming Unstuck for Writers – the handbook I wrote for you to dip into any time you need a little creative inspiration.
- Your book, completed, polished, and ready to represent you in the world
- A higher profile
- A bigger platform
- More expansive career choices
- A stronger public persona
- The sense of accomplishment that only writing a book can give you
- Expert status
- A larger audience for your message
- New confidence in your abilities and expertise
Maybe you think you aren’t far enough along with your book project to warrant working with a coach. The truth is starting with coaching early in the process can be unbelievably helpful and can streamline the entire book-writing process.
You may wonder if you’ll be able to manage your time properly to get the most out of the services we offer. Our clients often comment on how helpful we are in keeping them on track and motivated to continue even when life gets unusually busy.
You may think working with a creative coach is a luxury, not a necessity. But if getting your book done, on schedule, and the best it can be is a priority for you, working with me makes it all possible.
You may believe that you can write your book without any outside help. That’s possible, but perhaps not likely. And when it’s written, will it be your best work? So often we try to do it all, thinking, “How hard can it be?” We buy DIY courses and books and programs. But for your own work, don’t you deserve personal attention? Are you okay with things staying the way they’ve been? Or do you want a plan and accountability so you can get that book you envision really done?
You may have heard people who say that self-publishing is as simple as clicking a button. When you have your book written, do you want to start learning about the actual steps involved going from manuscript to professionally produced book that you can hold in your hands (or on your device)?
You may despair of every getting to the finish line. It’s true that creating a book and making a place for it in the world is complicated and can feel daunting. The key is understanding that you don’t have to do it alone.
You may be feeling hopeful, ambitious, and perhaps a little anxious. Can you really follow through on a project this big? Working with us, you’ll get the guidance you need, from someone who knows all the steps you’ll need to take (and which ones that you won’t need at all). You’ll have an expert at your side through the entire writing and publishing process. Someone who listens to you and reads your words intently, looking for the deeper message you’re eager to share.
You can do this
Trust yourself, your message, and the people you work with.
When you work with me, you have a guide who has done it all.
I love to see writers get the help they need to be their best. I love to see the real connections made between writers and their readers.
You’ll be confident taking a stance, taking a risk, because you’ll know your message, and you’ll know you’re able to express it with your voice.
Our clients go the distance. They publish their books.
Just know that this is doable.
You’re in the right place
Chenille Books can help you. Our clients have dealt with all those issues, and more, and made it through the process successfully. What’s more, they often discover to their delight that the clarity and energy that make their new book so effective are renewable resources! After using Chenille Books’ services, these authors can reach more people, affect a wider audience, and tell their story in ways they hadn’t imagined before.
