How we help you take your book project

These sessions are loaded with focused attention and feedback on your book.

This intense feedback, along with your homework assignments, will transform your book before your eyes!
Bridget's SOLE focus during your time together is on YOUR book. Sessions are recorded so you can reference them while doing your homework. In addition, Bridget works separately during the week going over your manuscript so she is prepared for next steps during the next session.

“I had never been so stuck, stuck, stuck! Can I just say it sucked?
And yet, after one hour with Bridget, it was like my manuscript came back to life. I remembered why I was writing in the first place, who my message was for, and especially what I wanted to say. After working with this extraordinary woman, I finally knew how to say it!
Thank you, Bridget! Can I call you my Miracle Worker?” ~ Dan Eastman Jr., Boulder, CO

What experience do I need to have to participate? No experience necessary, and all are welcome to attend: aspiring, published, or hobbyist. We cater to beginners through advanced writers. Executive Coaching concentrates on guiding you to becoming a published author and launching your career in a remarkable way. However, hobbyists will receive so much value for their journey—and will be so greatly informed if you ever decide to take your hobby into the pro realm! Anyone can write, and we help you take what skills you have and awaken the writer within.
What if I only have an idea and not a full book outline yet? Perfect! We work on that here – your beginning, your ending, and sorting out all of the mess in the middle.
What if I am almost through with my manuscript?Perfect! We have had authors who were so grateful they participated in this program before they published. Their feedback has been that their books have become deeper, juicier, and much more powerful than they would have been—plus they learned how specifically they wanted to publish and how to get there.
How long is each weekly coaching call?Each call will be two to three hours long, so please block that time in your calendar accordingly.
How much time do I need to dedicate weekly to take care of homework?Approximately four to five hours a week should be sufficient.
What if I have no clue how I’m going to publish? Perfect again! We stay up on all of the latest trends so you know exactly which directions you can go. You will have your own preference for that decision based on you, your book, your needs, your career, and your desires.
Where do your writers come from? All over the world. We’ve had people from all across the U.S. join us, and every program we’re getting more and more folks from outside the U.S. and Canada!
I live outside the United States. How do I participate in the Pitch Perfect Bootcamp and the Finish Your Manuscript Bootcamp? Once a year, Bridget will schedule a weekend of intensive, online participation. She will ensure that it is a weekend that suits your schedule.
I understand your specialty is non-fiction. What if my book is fiction? Ooh, good question. First, there is some really intensive work we do on you as a writer, regardless of the genre. Second of all, we have special modules for our imaginative fiction authors to enhance your storytelling capabilities, characterization, plot, etc. You are so welcome to join us! We will all love to be inspired by you, as well as inspire you to create your best.
What kind of payment options do you have? We offer payment plans with 2, 3, 4, or 6 payments. Choose which one best suits your needs. See our payment section for specific details.
What is your refund policy? Honestly, this is such an infrequent occurrence for us! We rarely deal with this question. However if, within 30 days of your beginning date of the program, you find that it is not the right fit for you, I will refund the remainder of your payments minus the amount of services already utilized. For a Single Session Program refunds are unavailable.
“Stories transform people, move people, inspire people, and sometimes save people. If there is a story inside of you that can do that for someone, I really would encourage you to talk to Bridget . . . It just might change everything. It did for me.”
