What a Book Coach Does, and How to Find the Right One for You

If you're feeling stuck in your writing or needing guidance from someone more experienced, a book coach might be able to help you. Bestselling author and book coach Allie Pleiter says coaches can help writers see the mistakes they've become blind to and identify and overcome the hurdles that are keeping them from reaching their goals. Coaches will also hold you accountable, mentor you, and provide valuable industry insights. When looking for a book coach, Pleiter believes it's important to find someone that fits your personality and that you can trust. He or she doesn't necessarily need expertise in your specific genre or sub-genre, but if you're writing fiction, for example, try to find a coach that does have some experience with fiction writers.
