Writing Help

You’ve thought about writing a book. Maybe people have said you should write a book. You have the expertise about a topic or a unique experience to share. And you know it will make a difference for others AND for you.

But you’ve put it off.

Every time you think about it, you feel overwhelmed. Where do I start? How do I write it? What will people think? Who am I to write a book?

I get it. Doubt is a powerful detractor.

Maybe you’ve made real effort to research and write your book, but each time you get stuck. You read confusing or incomplete information and just need a way forward.

You aren’t alone. And I want to help.

I work with nonfiction writers and pre-writers to imagine and craft a book to meet your WHY. From goal-setting to brainstorming and organizing to editing, I help you to carve out a path and keep you on track.

I help aspiring authors who:

  • Are writing a nonfiction book
  • Are writing a book to build credibility and establish expertise in your field
  • Are writing a memoir
  • Are writing an inspirational book
  • Are writing a family history
  • Are writing a children’s picture book
  • Are a new or experienced writer (I love working with first-timers.)
  • Can visualize their future as a writer and author

You are in the RIGHT place if you are driven by vision and determined to succeed

This is your time.

Not someday. Right now. It’s time to turn your dream into action and write your book. Choose from two solutions to get your book visualized, written, and done.

Lois Hoffman gave me the kickstart I needed in my business so that I could stay on track to finish tasks and accomplish goals. She is a patient, giving coach who not only suggested and helped me implement new ideas and direct me in the right direction, but she also guided me to unearth and move beyond limiting beliefs that were keeping me stuck. With her gentle voice in my head, I’m set up for greater future success!

If it were not for Lois Hoffman and The Happy Self-Publisher,

I would not be where I am today: published.

I hired Lois to help me publish my book through Kindle Direct Publishing and then to help me with marketing.

Lois is fantastic! She is knowledgeable of KDP protocols and understands the book-marketing landscape. She is a capable and patient teacher who shares information in ways that are easy to implement. A good reader of people, Lois knew just how to get me through the hard parts of marketing and especially, past some of my own hurdles.

Her fees were reasonable; for me, this was money well-spent.

I am so glad I went with someone local who could meet with me in person instead of an online service that relied on emails and phone calls alone. Both professionally and personally, working with Lois was a great experience. I would hire The Happy Self-Publisher again.

I had no idea where to go or what to do until I started with Lois Hoffman’s Author Coaching program last January. In that time, I not only published my book but began an entirely new business that supports it. Her amazing ability to guide me in the right direction and visualize what was necessary has had an enormous impact not only the success of my business and book but to my self-confidence as well. If you don’t know what step to take next, Lois is the perfect coach to assist you along your journey and help you find the path that leads to your success!
