Frequently asked questions:
How does a session work? If this is your first mentoring session, you'll discuss your project and what you hope to achieve by sharing your story, plus any questions, challenges or areas of advice you want guidance on. By the end of one session, you'll have actionable solutions.
What type of books does this work for? Amy specialises in non-fiction books, including self-help guides, memoirs, business books and lifestyle guides covering a wide range of topics. She has also worked with writers on novels, which are inspired by their life experiences if their stories are too sensitive to publish as non-fiction.
How should I prepare for a session? If you've already started writing, it's useful to email Amy a sample before your session (maximum of 3000 words). At least 24 hours before your session, email your work to email@example.com.
Do I need to have a certain amount written? Not at all! Amy works with people at all stages of the creative projects, whether they have zero words written or they're ready to get a book deal or promote a product.
I want to get a book deal — can you help? Sure can! A lot of students have gone onto sign book deals, after working with me on their book proposals. You can also check out our online course, The Book Writing Remedy, which includes advice on pitching and a downloadable book proposal template. Click here to find out more.

WHO IS WRITING MENTORING FOR?
The 1:1 mentoring program is for you if:
You’re called to share your past but still want to feel good in the present.
People are constantly telling you, you should write a book/podcast/article but it feels overwhelming (and sh*t scary!)
You want to understand how to share your past, but not get lost in it.
You don't want the writing process to be a lonely one.
You'd love someone to brainstorm with!
When you do share your story, it feels like a breath of fresh air.
You're looking for practical support in sharing your story, but also a cheerleader who is on your side (but still won't pull any punches!)
You don't want to share your story "just for fun"—you want to value for it's worth and make it an empowering (and profitable!) experience.

As a sharp editor, she not only helped to improve my writing, but her kindness and generosity always left me feeling cared for, encouraged, and motivated.
