1-2-1 Coaching For Nonfiction Books
Personal Coaching with The Book Professor
With 1-2-1 coaching, you will work directly with our founder, Nancy Erickson. She will lead you through our proprietary methodology to write and publish a high-impact nonfiction book that will establish you as an expert in your field, increase your credibility, and help attract a following.
How It Works
Below you’ll see the 6-step process for how our personal coaching program works as well as costs associated with each step. When you’re ready to get started, fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
Plan Your Project
We construct your chapters by naming the problems your readers are likely to experience. Then, through a very story-driven process, you present your solutions.
We do this through six 90-minute video sessions to construct your content. During that time, you’ll have specific homework to complete. At the conclusion of our sessions, you will have built a firm foundation for your book and developed a comprehensive BookMap that will guide you as you write your book.
We will accomplish in six sessions what it takes fourteen weeks to accomplish in the Group Coaching Masterminds. Through this personalized attention and individual focus, Nancy specifically targets her expertise to you, your passion, and your work.
Step 1 Cost: $6,000
Write Your First Draft
Following your BookMAPs, you will write the first draft of your personal story and all the chapters that make up your Problem/Solution sets. Every object lesson and application story will be included. We will create a writing schedule and establish accountability to complete your project. We work together to refine your style, your voice, your material, and your message to fit your branding. Nancy will guide you with assignments and deadlines to keep you on track to keep the project moving and minimize your costs. As you finish writing one chapter, Nancy will edit it while you work on the next chapter.
Step 2 Cost: $175 per hour
Edit Your Manuscript
This final polish comes when your manuscript is complete. We will edit your manuscript for consistency and clarity, weave in elements of your personal story at appropriate points, construct the title page, copyright page, front matter, and back matter. At the conclusion of this step, your manuscript will be complete and ready for publication through Stonebrook Publishing.
Step 3 Cost: $175 per hour
Publish Your Book
If we work through all of the above steps together, your book will be published through our sister company, Stonebrook Publishing. With our professional staff, we will design your cover and the interior layout, purchase and assign the ISBNs, and set your book up for publication and distribution. Publication will be print-on-demand, which means that your book is printed at the time it is sold—a savvy way to prevent you from paying large sums to purchase and store inventory. Step Four is only available to those who complete steps One through Three with us.
All rights are 100% yours, and you receive 100% of the proceeds from book sales.

This soup-to-nuts approach guides you to write nonfiction book that will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the best on the market. And that’s what you want. Not some slapped together book that will get lost in the crowd, but a professionally written, packaged, and internationally distributed product that will have a lasting impact on your readers.
The typical total cost for 1-2-1 coaching and publication through Stonebrook Publishing is usually between $15,000 and $18,000. The actual amount varies by client.
