personalised book coaching

One on one personalised book coaching. Because it's finally time.

"If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."
Toni morrison

It’s time. You want to write a book. But there are things stopping you.

Time. Distractions. Priorities. Or you just have no idea where to start. Or how to continue.


That’s completely normal. Every single writer has encountered at least one of these at some point. But you don’t have to suffer. There is a solution to overcoming these obstacles. In fact, it’s more than possible to write your book effortlessly, easily and quickly.

it's true! I've done it and helped others do it.

Just because you haven’t done so yet, doesn’t mean that with the right considered and expert coaching that you can’t too.

Imagine the sheer delight of seeing your book on the shelves in bookstores. Or being able to hand clients a copy. Or being asked to speak at an event on the basis of your published book.

All these things can— and probably will— happen. But first, you need to write the book.

it's no good if you don't start.

What the book coaching covers:


  1.    A book plan
  2.    Generating and organising ideas
  3.  Overall book topic
  4.  Nailing the book’s theme and soul of the book
  5.   The structure and order of your book
  6.  Tips on getting started and staying on course
  7.  Learning how to plan your time
  8.  Get your vision or knowledge down on paper
  9.  Creating a book that will help your business
  10.  Tips on making your book more successful
  11. Getting around your limiting beliefs
  12.  Help you draw out the best possible version of your book

and so much more!

"Vanessa helped me write my first book and the process was so easy and quick."

about your book coach

I have published ten books! Including two novels, four marketing books, a kids book, two novellas and a book of short stories. I won’t tell you which ones but one of the books I wrote in less than three weeks and one of the books I wrote in only TWO DAYS! And to top it off, I have written two screenplays as well.

Because writing is everything to me, I am a professional copywriter and marketer and have been running my own business for more than five years. Before that, I worked at the SA Writers Centre for five years helping other writers achieve their dreams. In 2021, I became an award-winning screenwriter!

In the distant past, I even worked in a bookstore for three years, which set me up to understand how the retail side of the book industry worked and what kind of books really sell. And, of course, got a lot of reading done.

I am also a qualified yoga teacher and have studied Positive Psychology at TAFE, so I like to think that I know how people (and their minds) work.

But, most importantly, I love books and I know how to write them. And I might as well share that knowledge with others!

common beliefs about writing a book

There are so many common beliefs when it comes to writing a book.

I don’t have anything important to say. I don’t have enough time. I don’t know where to start. I’m not a good writer.

These beliefs are so common that they are almost boring to me now! So if you have them, you are not alone. I’ll guide you through them and you’ll choose whether to drop them or keep them and STILL write a book.

book coaching can help

your words in the world.

Can you imagine that amazing feeling of touching someone with your words? It’s not out of your reach. You can get closer to that dream than you ever have before with professional book coaching sessions with author and writer, Vanessa Jones.

your book deserves to be read.
