What you'll do

What better thing to do in social isolation than start writing the book you’ve always wanted to?

*Please note: this is a private ‘1:1’ session, just for you & your ideas* (Once you book by yourself, no one else can join your session - it’s just for you :)

As your personal writing 'whisperer', I’ll help you organize and focus your ideas in a unique, individualized session - specially tailored just for you. Whether you’re new to writing or a seasoned pro, we’ll explore a plan for you, plus brainstorm ideas & practical 'take-away' techniques to help you create & publish your masterpiece.

Write what you’ve always dreamt of - any genre & style - from fiction to non-fiction.

Tangible outcomes include a personalised writing process & schedule for your style & genre (as well as your personal writing routine), plot arcs & outlines, book title & summary, character development, chapter structure & titles, cover artwork & layout design, motivational methods, confidence building & much more…

Plus, tips for traditional, hybrid & self-publishing on Amazon, including eBooks & AudioBooks, & promotion/public speaking & sales techniques.

This is an 'online' version of my ‘in-person’ experience, which has been called the “best combination of a master class and a coaching session.” You can also have a peek at some additional reviews below...

It also makes a lovely gift for someone special :)

The experience was perfect for a beginner like me. Dan gave me lots of ideas and useful tips to startmy book. This endeavor seemed less intimidating now because of Dan's insight and suggestion. Thanks a lot, Dan!

I booked this experience as a present for my husband Morgan and he was very happy with it. Here's his review: "I received a chat with Dan as a present and really enjoyed it. It was easy to see he's got plenty of experience and he provided great feedback on various parts of the publishing journey, from how to deal with publishing in different genres, to tips about getting a series of books to hang together, to the best way to get my books into people's hands. The time flew by and I learned a lot as well as feeling energised about getting that next book out. Highly recommended: have a chat with Dan, then write that book!"

Dan is very experienced on book writing. He shared with me some secret tips on how to make my book become best seller on Amazon. Dan was also offering help on writing and editing my bio. If you want to write a book, you should definitely talk to Dan first!

I booked a session with Dan as a gift for my daughter who has recently started writing. Dan was incredibly friendly and helpful when I was trying to book an initial session for her. (I am in the UK so the time slots shown were somewhat confusing!) My daughter was really excited by the idea and said a mentoring session was exactly what she needed at that time, to progress her ideas. She has since had an awesome session with Dan! She says it was really useful, engaging and very productive. She now has a firm chapter plan for the book and feels the session with Dan has really kick-started it. Huge thanks to Dan for helping me organise such a successful birthday gift and for helping my daughter on her way to a great book!

Round two talking with Dan about my book - now ‘books’. I didn’t expect much cuz we just spoke the previous day, but I was pleased to find him extremely helpful yet again. I went from being unable to plan out one book, to having full clear plans and directions for two books. Thanks Dan!

It doesn’t get better than this. My only complaint is to myself, I wish I would’ve called Dan a year ago, or even two years ago. I’m already 16 months into my writing journey AND have a contract with a publisher, regardless Dan provided excellent insight and new information. His passion for passion itself is a North Star for anyone - we so easily lose our way trying to make money or write a book that will sell instead of the story we want to tell. Thanks again Dan!
