As a highly published nonfiction author and mentor, I work with authors who want to create and publish their nonfiction books (via a traditional route or self-publishing).

We might explore a mix of any of the following:

  • Increasing motivation
  • Writing with authenticity

  • Organising your ideas

  • Researching publishers
  • Developing your book proposal and synopsis for conventional book publishers

MANUSCRIPT ASSESSMENT:  I offer an independent critique of your nonfiction book project at whatever stage of development.  This service includes a multi-page report plus an online 1:1, 60-minute session with me.  Contact me to talk through your requirements.

Let Me Ask

  • Are you ready to have your nonfiction book commissioned by a traditional book publisher?
  • Do you want people to buy your book online or in the shops?
  • Are you prepared to feel more optimistic about your writing strengths and abilities?
  • Would you like to self-publish your nonfiction book?
  • Do you tend to suffer from imposter syndrome with your writing?
  • Are you ready to create your nonfiction book with a highly published writing mentor by your side?

If you can answer YES to more than two of the above, author mentoring with me could be a perfect fit.

Your Customised Mentoring

Your mentoring is customised for your needs and dates to suit you.  I offer encouraging and creative support for anyone wanting to develop, write and sell their nonfiction book.

I work one-to-one with clients seeking to:

  • Experience their creative flow through nonfiction writing
  • Lean into being mentored by an experienced and highly published nonfiction author
  • Improve their confidence with nonfiction writing
  • Become publish their nonfiction book with a traditional book publisher or through self-publishing
  • Achieve greater meaning and fulfilment with their writing practice

We work together, assessing the point you are currently at and exploring how you can move forward into positive action.

What My Clients Say

I’ve been working with Laurel to mentor me through writing a series of eBooks linked to my (marketing) business as a source of passive income for me and education for my clients. Laurel has helped me structure my approach and given me sound advice on how to get started and things to consider.

Thanks, Laurel! 


Your Author Mentoring Sessions, Your Way

You’re welcome to personalise your author mentoring sessions according to your needs. When booking, we will discuss what you would like and how we might work together.

I recognise that mentoring clients have different requirements and offer a flexible booking service to accommodate this. This is perfect if you would like to pay per hour or have smaller-scale author mentoring requests, e.g., a couple of hours to create a synopsis for commission.
