Where are you with your writing project? How can we help?
Looking for support with your writing project? Need help becoming unstuck? Here’s how we get acquainted and discover the next steps.
We recognize that your project – and you – are unlike all others. So our entire process is built to honor that reality. We use a three-step sequence designed to uncover and serve each writer’s needs.
• First, your Welcome Call
We’ll get on the phone or Skype for a free Welcome Call to chat, discuss where you are now, and where you want to go with your writing. During your Welcome Call we can discover your next steps (even if they aren’t likely to involve Chenille Books). Let’s face it – writers need to support one another!
• Complimentary Welcome Call
• Next, your Initial Strategy Session
You’ll receive laser-focused guidance – and probably an “a-ha!” or two – about the next steps for your writing project, and tools you can use along the way. Our signature Initial Strategy Session gives you the most impact in the shortest timeframe. Before we speak (for a full sixty minutes), you’ll answer a focused set of questions sent to you a few days ahead of time, and I’ll study your answers before we speak. You’ll also share with me a sample chapter and your outline (if you have them), for my review. This way, both of us are up to speed before we start talking. Our call will cover questions, comments, and ideas. Together we’ll form a plan to move your book project forward. One Initial Strategy Session may be all you need to revive your project! Whether you’re considering working with us on one of our 90 Days programs, Creative Coaching, Manuscript Development, or Another Look – or another program we devise just for you – take advantage of your Initial Strategy Session first.

Step Three: Choices
• Now, what will it be – 90 Days, Creative Coaching, Manuscript Development, or Another Look? Something else we design together?
The following four choices are representative examples of the kinds of services Chenille Books offers. Oftentimes, we end up creating a program specific to the client’s needs and situation. So after reviewing these examples, consider whether some other combination of services will be the right fit for you. We’ll talk – and together we can figure out what works.
• 90 Days Does It
When your book project needs a boost, you’ll find that, oftentimes, 90 Days Does It. Details….
• 90 Days Plus
If you prefer even more personal attention and support, try 90 Days Plus. Details….
Does Creative Coaching sound like the next step? If you decide on Creative Coaching, we can move into an ongoing coaching relationship. You’re in charge.
Schedule sessions at regular intervals, or only when you feel the need. Details….
Do you need to focus on the manuscript itself, and with more accountability?
If you decide on Manuscript Development, we’ll co-design a program of services to suit you and your project.
Every writer brings a unique situation to the table, and at Chenille Books we’re flexible by design.
So, for example, one person came to us having written the entire book, needing help polishing and preparing the final manuscript for indie publication.
Another writer had been conducting research for ten years. We began working together when it was time to start drafting Chapter One.
Those are widely different scenarios. After our in-depth initial conversations, those two authors worked effectively with us. So can you.
