For most authors, the road to getting published is long and steep, not to mention filled with potholes. But a new company, Author Coach (http://www.authorcoach.com), offers writers personalized services to help them overcome the hurdles that stand in their way and achieve their publishing dreams.
For aspiring writers, the first stop on the information super-highway should be AuthorCoach.com, where they can find tips for preparing professionally formatted manuscripts and writing effective query letters. And, most importantly, they can connect with a personal coach who can assist them in reaching their goals.
The concept is simple: Author Coach allows writers one-stop shopping in their search for editorial assistance. As "book doctors" have become a more and more popular resource for authors, so have the challenges of getting published. And with today's demands on every writer's life, it becomes more and more difficult to find the time and focus to simply sit down and write that novel or nonfiction work you've always wanted to write. This is where Author Coach comes in.
When you sign up with Author Coach, you are given a personal contact who will guide you in formulating your plan for writing your book and in your approach to getting it published. From brainstorming and fine-tuning a plot, to checking in weekly to provide encouragement, to crafting that all-important query letter and figure out your submission list, your author coach is there to help.
So much of the publishing information found on the web in writers' forums and at random websites is unreliable and incorrect that inexperienced writers run the risk of being taken advantage of by unscrupulous agents, editorial services, and even publishing houses. With a publishing veteran as your coach, you will be able to better navigate your way through the process.
Author Coach, LLC (http://www.authorcoach.com) was founded by Andrew Zack, a veteran book editor and literary agent. Over the years, Zack has witnessed the growth of the "book doctor" business and other editorial services, and the growing difficultly writers have had in finding agents or receiving contracts from publishers. He felt that there was a need to go beyond the "traditional" free-lance editorial role to an active coaching role. Moreover, he also wanted to take the guesswork out of trying to find an appropriate resource. Authors of nearly any genre or subject area can find just the right publishing veteran to work with as they pursue their dreams of getting published. You've put those dreams off long enough. It's time to get in the game. And Author Coach can help you win.
