Why hire a coach?
Hear Lauren share about the clarity she gained in the FYV process
Hear Melody Miles talk about how her message shifted as she prepared to publish
Here’s how the program works.
In your intro call, your coach give you access to your course materials, assignments, resources library and action steps unique to your goals and your book idea.
Virtual Book Outline
You and your coach spend a full day together (virtually) creating a book outline that cuts your writing time in half—or even less!
You’ll leave with a publishing map unique to your book so you never wonder what to do next.
First, you’re going to be assigned a dedicated and experienced VIP coach to walk you through our coursework. We’ve found this one-on-one coaching gives authors the confidence they need to make progress quickly and effectively with their work and finally finish the book they’ve been struggling to write. Second, you’ll receive twelve weeks of digital material—including a workbook, weekly teaching videos, emails and accountability reminders—that will answer the most common questions that keep authors stuck and that give you a clear path for what to include in your book, what to leave out, where to begin your message, and where to end.
I believe your message matters. If you’re like I was when I first started, and you doubt whether it will be worth the time or the effort, I’m here to remind you that what you have to say matters and that the path to publishing can be simple if you have someone to walk you through it.
Don’t waste another day wondering if you’ll ever write your book. Hire your expert coach today and finally finish the book you’ve always wanted to write.
"FYV guided me from a scientist who hadn't written a word to a complete industry-level book proposal. My time with FYV didn't just change my writing life, it changed me as a human being for the better."

Creative Director at Find Your Voice and head of the coaching program, Annie Kyle is no stranger to the Prepare to Publish process.

Over her career, she’s helped hundreds of authors find the right path for their outline so they can finally get their book written. Her favorite part of helping Prepare to Publish authors is watching an idea become a story. She lives in sunny Pasadena, California.

She’s also in the process of writing her own book. Mahla’s favorite part about working with Prepare to Publish authors is helping them find clarity where things used to feel fuzzy. Because then all of a sudden, the book becomes real. Mahla lives in beautiful Oceanside, California with her husband, Lane, and baby boy, West.
As a general rule, if you are nervous to start, that’s normal — you’re ready. If you don’t fully know what your book is about, perfect. We can help. If you’ve been tooling at this for years and haven’t made progress, yes. Now it’s time.
The book outlining day is the heart of our VIP program. An individualized, full-day experience, your personal coach will lead you from book idea to book outline in a single day. With four 90-minute sessions, you’ll leave with the confidence of knowing what’s in every chapter which can shave years off of your writing time.
We’ll send you a guided workbook and give you access to video tutorials to walk you through every step of creating, outlining and executing your book. During your intro call, your coach will assign you prep work to get you ready for your book outlining day.
We designed the two months after your book outlining day for you to complete your publishing map. You have access to your coach and receive week-by-week video guides and instructions to get you to the finish line. As a wrap-up call, your coach will assess your publishing map and get you the feedback you need to take your next publishing steps.
A publishing map is your guide to executing your manuscript and getting your book out into the world. It includes your chapter titles and summaries, back cover copy, premise, author bio, as well as a marketing plan, reader description and sample chapters.
This book map can function as a book proposal document—which will be your key to securing a book contract (the traditional publishing path) if you choose to go that route. No matter what, it’s a plan to get your book written, published and in the hands of your readers.
At your wrap up call, we’ll give you feedback on your book map and talk through publishing options.
If you decide to try traditional publishing, you’ll need an agent. You can contact our list of preferred agents and send us a final version of your book map to see if we can make any other connections. If you want to self publish, you don’t need an agent. Your next step will be to follow your book map to write the remaining chapters of your book.
We believe you will never finish your book without a plan (we’ve seen way too many great writers fail unnecessarily). By helping you create a solid outline and a comprehensive book map, we’re giving you the tools you need to actually sit down and write your book in a matter of weeks.
At the end of the three month program, you’ll have your plan in place and your manuscript started, with at least two chapters written. Why don’t we have you write more? A common misconception about the publishing industry is that publishers want to see a finished manuscript. Unless you’re writing fiction, what you need is a book proposal document (our “publishing map”)—not a finished manuscript.
In order to “prepare to publish” you need what agents want: a book proposal document. You also need a plan. You’ll leave the program with a path forward, a vision for your book, and the ability to write it all down, when the time comes, in a matter of weeks.
