What Makes Book Coaching So Effective?

I transform Aspiring authors
into novelists.

Lisa Poisso, Editor and Book Coach
Specializing in Fiction by New and Emerging Authors

What if you finally understood what's going on under the hood of your novel manuscript?

No more stumbling through rough drafts, then paying an editor to help you find the story inside. You'll write a better book from the start, from concept and story to the words on the page.

This is where theory and practice come together, giving you strategies and knowledge you'll use the rest of your writing career.

This is your writing, but smarter. Your book, but better.

  • "(Lisa's) the real deal. Simply awesome. In the last six months, I have learned so much. And more than that, the voice inside my head has changed her tune. Now I hear, 'You're going to do this.'"—Emile Horne

  • "After completing the Plot Accelerator course with Lisa ... I've just hit 30K words after making a lot of cuts and reducing it to 15K. Now I’m back to where I started with a much stronger story. Nothing is lost in the process. The scenes that will never be read have enhanced my own understanding of the protagonist's situation. Originally intended to be a novella, Collisville is now writing itself. Here's to words that grow organically! Stories shouldn't be forced. Motivation drives the characters. Characters drive the action! Action and reaction IS the story."—J. C. Thomas

  • "You need a great and wonderful editor to enhance and embolden the story; I found that with Lisa."—Troy Christensen
