With extensive experience in writing, publishing and marketing, Laura can help you fulfill your dream of becoming a published author! There are thousands of articles on HOW TO out there, but not many focus on personalised advice. If you are not yet satisfied with your progress, it is maybe because you are using the wrong strategy for your particular project.
” My manuscript was finished and I wanted at least one peer-review before applying to publishers. Laura scrolled 2 min. through my book and pointed out 3 major flaws that were going to turn away any editor in the industry. I went back to the drawing board with her by my side and now I am on my way to signing with a children’s book publisher in my home town. Will definitely have Laura coach me for book 2! ”

Not all authors are the same. Not all authors ”make it” from the first try. Yet again, not all authors want to. Staying local and having a small fan base is the dream for some writers. Whatever your objectives are though, if you don’t publish your first book, you won’t make it past stage ONE.
If you are a wannabe writer, Laura will help you start your journey towards publishing. She will give you a shortcut and spare you reading dozens of HOW TO articles which may not even apply to you. Get in touch for a consulation and get a step-by-step personalised programme that will get you from IDEA to BOOK.
” I was having difficulties selling my comedy script featuring a wacky dentist. Laura commented on a writing group, saying it had grounds for a novel. After the free consultation (its weight in gold, fellas!) and a session on novel-structure, I started writing the first book in my life. I still have hopes of finding a good publisher for it – if not, I know just the right person to help me self-publish! ”

No matter how experienced you are as a writer, it always helps to get a second opinion. Are you stuck with your story? Are you unsure if your plot is strong enough to hold your story? Don’t really know if your draft is ready? Have you already tried applying and got nothing but rejections? Normal editors won’t give more feedback other than grammar slip-ups. Talk to an experienced writer who knows what it’s all about.
” A friend recommended Laura after I had told him that I was going to give up on my novel, because I had gotten only standard rejections from agents. It is about my immigrant grandmother, so this is very personal to me. Laura encouraged me to continue and offered me new insights on how to bring her story out into the world. Thank you Laura, for understanding me! ”

Laura and her team are ready to offer you assistance from day 1 till the moment you hold your book in your hands and beyond. What is your most pressing problem? Here are the issues Laura’s clients usually have when she asks about their projects:
Do you have a strong story concept?
From LOGLINE, to OUTLINE, to CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. If the basiscs aren’t clear to you, they won’t be to anybody else. Agents and editors don’t have the time to figure out what you want to say. Talk to Laura and get your story message straight. What is your story about? Why would anybody want to read it? Why would anybody care about your character? Let’s have a chat and pimp up your concept!
Are you using the best story format?
There are ideas which make better short stories than novels and novels which make better screenplays. What does your word count say about your story? Most writers never make it to chapter 2 BECAUSE they set off to write a novel when their idea would make for an incredible short story. The format is quite different and it makes all the difference. There are NO BAD IDEAS! Just bad formatting (”packaging”)!
What readers buy: cover, title, blurb
You know it: the cover sells! But how to pick the best cover? And what about the title? What you think sounds nice might be a no-no. And did you know that most people never open the book they buy? They only read what is on the back. If they love it, they’ll get it BUT if what they read do not match your blurb, they might leave a negative review. Sale to the right audience for maximum impact using those 3 key elements. Brainstorm with Laura and get these stuff perfect from the get-go!
Write your first non-fiction book!
You have an idea, you have some knowledge in the matter, but how do you package the product so it competes with the rest of the titles? Talk TITLE, CONTENT and marketing strategies before you start writing. There are 1000 ways to write THIS book, but only some of them will get you the success you deserve!
Author page, connecting to your audience, branding – you have to have it!
Most writers are introverts and can write day in and day out, but are completely overwhelmed when having to build a website or set up an Instagram account. This is 2021. If you are not on the internet, you don’t exist. Get the basic tips from Laura and become tech savy for the sake of your books!
