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

Bridget highly recommends that you add editing packages with
Hannah Lyon during your Executive Program

This additional option accelerates your manuscript development, getting it ready for a proposal or publishing.

Hannah’s expertise is critiquing, cleaning, organizing, arranging, and turning manuscripts into something you can proudly share with editors, publishers, and future readers. 

In other words: POLISH!

Hannah lives with her husband south of Salt Lake City, Utah, in an old brick house they just finished remodeling by hand. When she isn't writing her novels, she works for Your Inspired Story as a personal assistant, teacher, on-staff editor, and social media manager for New York Times best-selling author Bridget Cook-Burch.

Hannah helps Bridget teach and provides editing services for her fiction and nonfiction clients, as well as assisting in running quarterly writers’ retreats at locations all around Utah, India, Canada, and Europe. She is the President of the Dis-appropriate Word Smiths writing group, which meets weekly to critique and advise each other on their individual literary projects. The rest of her free time consists of indulging in story-driven video games, listening to and collecting classic rock and roll records, raising her cheeky, elfin sprite of a daughter, and playing with her two adorable Shih-Tzus.

FAQ's

  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.
