"Ashly made it happen..."
“Four months ago I told my husband my book wasn't happening. Today, I have almost 600 people on my book launch team. Ashly is the one who made that happen.”
You aren’t interested in publishing just another Amazon ebook. You want to write an outstanding book like Pride and Prejudice, Narnia, or Daring Greatly.
But you have no idea how to do that…
Hey there hey! I’m your new writing mentor and bestie! Turns out we aren’t born knowing how to write a truly wonderful story. (Who knew, right?) You’ve got a story to tell and you want to tell it well, but you don’t really know how to make it the noteworthy, wonderful, stirring story you want it to be.
I give you the tools to tell a story that is wonderful, exceptional, and compelling, along with a heavy dose of encouragement and a one-two punch to your inner critic (but then we sit your inner critic in the corner and give it a snack so it won’t be sad).
I’ve been giving feedback to writers like you for over four years on everything from nonfiction to memoir to fantasy to contemporary YA.
I’ve provided feedback to 36 writers in the last year alone. You’ll be in good company!
I’m currently working with six clients on a weekly basis (though I often do one off projects with writers as well—see my services page for more details). I only have space for two more so if you are interested in weekly coaching, jump on it!
I hear you loud and clear. Writing is a long game and many articles and blog posts don't address this, offering quick fixes and suggestions that are good in theory but difficult in practice.
But there is a method that can get you results--not instant ones, because easy come, easy goand you get what you pay for (and other proverbial truths that you already know). Instead of putting out quick fixes, I've created a four step process to finishing your book that will actually get you across that coveted finish line.
It's simple, but not easy. Effective, but not quick.
Most importantly it can be completely tailored to your specific writing situation. Click here to get the Four Essential Steps to Finishing Your Book. These are the steps I use with my clients that get them from random jumble of chapters and plot summaries to completed book.
