Frequently asked Questions
One-on-One Mentoring: How to Turn Your Past into a Powerful Product
Do you have a backstory that could help other people? Do you want to find meaning in a life experience? Specialising in Storytelling for Healing, Amy guides writers (of all levels) to turn their past into a powerful product.
Whether you have dreams of writing a book or a blog, want to create an online course, launch a podcast or make your website content feel more 'you', Amy works one-on-one with writers to turn their past into a powerful product.
As a qualified counsellor (with an emotional backstory herself!), Amy guides writers from idea to launch and beyond, whether you’re looking for big picture guidance, an editor, a ghost writer or just some moral support.
Previous mentoring students have secured book deals with global publishers, earned the attention of Australia’s leading news sites and seen their stories splashed across their favourite magazine.
Services also include: entire book editing, book blurbs, press packs, media releases, book proposals to pitch to publishing houses and supporting writers to pitch to the media.
Sign up below or reach out to discuss how Amy can support you.
Chapter Editing (per chapter) — $300. It is recommended you send a minimum of three chapters at once for Amy to get a feel for your book and offer advice around structure and flow.
How does a session work?
If this is your first mentoring session, we'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.
I haven't written anything yet - is that okay?
I work with students on all stages of the creative process — some have only the spark on an idea, others are a year into writing a book. Sessions are tailored to the stage you're at.
Should I send you my writing before we chat?
If you have written something you'd like to share, it's always helpful for me to read before our session. Once you've booked in, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org (maximum of 3000 words please).
I want to get a book deal — can you help?
Sure can! A lot of my students have gone onto sign book deals, after working with me on their book proposals. You can also check out my course, The Book Writing Remedy — I provide a book pitching template.
Will it help me write my podcast?
I work with writers and creatives on all types of content from poddies to online courses and social media posts — any time you feel called to share your story.
I've got another question!
Feel free to reach out to me on email@example.com to see if it's right for you! Or, just trust your gut and book!
