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

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

  • "An enormous thank-you to Lisa Poisso, who not only provided a masterful editorial review and line edit but taught me the art and science of storytelling. … So much more than I ever expected. ... This is so helpful because by this point I’ve boxed my story and closed it up so tight in my head I have a hard time reopening it for fresh ideas."—Shanon Hunt

Are you a new novelist?

If you’re looking for someone to help you simply polish your manuscript for publication, I might not be the right editor for your book. But if you’re ready to master what’s going on under the hood, let’s talk.
