Book Brainstorming Snapshot

Schedule a “Book Brainstorming Snapshot” Session with Melissa Annalise Halstead to get your questions answered, action steps super clear, and the information you need to write your book — today!

Each strategy session is created to get you moving forward quickly. Here’s a sampling of how others have used their “Book Brainstorming Snapshot” Sessions:

  • devise a monthly, trackable, plan to meet your 2016 writing goals
    outline and create a flow chart of your book
  • develop a strategy to maximize your book potential so you can put cash in your pocket and leverage your credibility
  • walk through exactly what needs to be done to set up your next teleseminar or webinar— everything from topic creation to how to promote, to how to sign people up…and more
  • determine your next, or first, info product, the steps to get it done, and how to get it *out there* as quickly and sanely as possible
  • identify how to create a profitable workshop and product around your book
  • outlining how you can best leverage your book and existing content for higher revenues and profits
  • get personalized, one-on-one consulting with Melissa, personally on developing your book idea from thought to print

Essentially, you have 50 minutes of Melissa focused on exactly what you want and need most.

What will you do to maximize your Snapshot Session?

Will you:

  • design your short and powerful book to reach your revenue and profit goals?
  • create a marketing funnel based on your current book idea
    craft a plan to get your book to work for you?
  • plan your days and weeks for optimal efficiency and effectiveness by identifying what to work on when?

Click the link below to officially reserve your spot.

You’ll be contacted within 1 business day to schedule your “Book Brainstorming Snapshot” Session. Spots are open on a first come, first served basis and there’s often a waiting list so I recommend you reserve your spot today.

You’ll receive a pre-session questionnaire so I can become more familiar with your book ideas as well as future goals around your book purpose.  Also it allows me to get a better idea of what you want to work on, so we can jump right in.

We meet for approximately 50 minutes by telephone, Skype, or webinar (if you want a hands-on demonstration of anything). I record the conversation, as requested, (audio or video depending on how we “chat”) so you can go back and listen/watch as many times as you want.

By the end of our session, you will have the actual action steps and “how-tos” you can put into place immediately. We may even have already started implementing together.

Melissa strongly recommends that you commit to a minimum three-month writing coaching relationship. Together you will set month-by-month phone sessions and deadlines for you to get her newly written material, preferably at the same time each week. If you must reschedule either, 24-hour notice is required. Missed sessions must be made up during that same calendar month or be forfeited.

Editing Services

Editing is not included in writing coach services. Line editing rates run $90 an hour with discounts for Writer’s Oracle clients.
