Let's Get You On Your Way.

Have your plans in order, but need to talk it out? Let's do it. For one hour, you can call me your personal KidLit coach. Whether you're just starting out or you're a seasoned author, I'll help you brainstorm and answer questions so you get instant feedback. Plus, I'll review up to 1,200 words of material before the call (think manuscripts, proposals, websites, newsletter funnels, etc.)

Private Consultation & strategy call

Either way, I'm your girl. Together we can tackle any step in your KidLit journey. (Or as many as we can squeeze in!) I can help you work through a manuscript, consider what steps you need to take to get it published, or work with you to develop a strategy for marketing and selling your project (I like to refer to this as "stewardship"). I can even help you with your author website, your social media strategy, or your email funnels. You name it, I'm ready. 

Sometimes, you need the big-picture person: the one who looks at everything going on and helps you know the next steps to get there...or you need the details person, who can zero in on that one thing hanging you up and help you jump over the hurdle. 

You don't have to do it alone.

"Book publishing can feel like a black box sometimes. I may have already published several books, but Laura is someone I call with questions when I'm looking to make my idea a reality. Her industry knowledge and clear thinking combined with her passion for writers and readers, makes her an ideal coach. "

Working with Laura in KidLit Coaching was a great experience for me. I feel much more equipped going forward as a writer with all kinds of resources that will help mold and shape my writing. 

"Laura encouraged me in the path that was best for me as a person, not just an author"

Laura met me exactly where I was, and I certainly did not leave the same. Her ability to take you through ideation to the strategic and technical planning part of the creative process in a clear and concise way in which you will understand, is what sets her apart from others. I left feeling inspired, empowered, and like I had just got off a call with a lifelong friend.

"I left feeling inspired and empowered!"

“I knew that Laura would have invaluable industry knowledge to share, but what really blew me away was how much she invested into me and my writing before, during, and after our call. Laura helped me establish tangible next steps for the goals I came in with AND helped me see even more opportunities to build my career. I’ve never felt so excited to keep writing!”
