Hey, World Changer.
You need a Book Map.

Is it time to finally write your book?

→ click here for the fiction book map

You're someone with a big mission—whether you're a coach, consultant, speaker, or thought leader—you have powerful ideas, messages, methods, and stories that could change lives...

That could even change the world.

But every time you try to translate your genius into a book, you freeze up.

  • You don’t know where to start…
  • You get lost in the weeds of your big idea…
  • You stare at the blinking cursor until your eyes glaze over

And then, whenever you think about writing a book, you’re completely stumped on where to start.

The doubt sets in, and you start wondering…

  • Do I even know what I’m talking about? (Yes, you do.)
  • Can I really do this? (Yes, you can.)
  • Are people going to laugh at me? (No, they won’t.)
  • Am I a fraud? Not imposter-syndrome-fraud, but a real fraud? (No, you’re not.)
  • Will this actually help me grow? (Yes, it will.)

You can really do this.

You have a world-changing book inside you. 

One that connects with readers as deeply as…

  • Untamed by Glennon Doyle
  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey
  • How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish
  • Getting Things Done by David Allen
  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
  • Daring Greatly by Brené Brown
  • Or any other world-changing author you love

You’ve put in SO MUCH work to find your flow in your business, and you just need that last piece of the puzzle to make everything click… 

To make it all slot into perfect alignment so this beautiful business you’ve built from the ground up will start running itself so it’ll stop running you.

And wouldn’t it be great to have…

  • More speaking opportunities that pay top speaking fees
  • More media attention from first-tier publications
  • No more ghosting from industry acquaintances
  • Readers who can’t wait to hand you their credit card
  • Automatic credibility with readers and industry colleagues
  • The overwhelming pride of having a book
  • A place in that exclusive 5% of coaches & entrepreneurs with a book

Yes, please!

What if you could throw out all the messy notebooks + stickies and just start writing that world-changing book... knowing exactly what you need to write?


The Book Map™

Your roadmap to world-changing authorhood.

The Book Map™ is the last resource you'll need to finally write your world-changing book.

Half-template. Half-teacher. 100% life-changing.

You’re going to shortcut your writing process right here on this page with one simple fact every author has to learn sooner or later (usually the hard way).

Writing a book that’s going to represent you isn’t a weekend process

At least, not if you want to write a book that can change the world—if you could write a world-changing book in a weekend, everyone would’ve done it. And you deserve that, don’t you?

I get it; It feels like a lot of work. (Not when you’ve got a roadmap!)

It feels scary. (Not anymore!)

It feels daunting. (I got you covered.)

That’s why you need an EASY way to do it… a proven path for happy readers.

You need a guide to shape your big ideas into a compelling book. 

A framework to organize your insights into memorable stories and actionable advice.

A toolkit to finally translate your one-of-a-kind voice into words on the page.

What you need...
is The Book Map™

The secret is to plan an unputdownable, recommendable book right from the start.

How do you do that?

Let me tell you about my Book Mapping™ process because it’s awesome. What if you could write a book that’s going to change lives—and maybe even the world!—in 3 steps?

That’s exactly what you’ll find in the Book Map™️, where I guide you through the exact steps I use with my one-on-one coaching clients: Prepping, Planning, and Penning.

Prepping the book that will bring you the results you want

One of the biggest mistakes I see when people come to me for coaching is that they started writing a book—maybe even got all the way through!—only to realize that it wasn’t a book anyone was going to buy. 

If you want to change the world with your book, there are 4 key elements you need to get just right. BEFORE you start writing. Do this step right and you’re 50% there

In The Book Map™️, I guide you step-by-step through this process so you can’t get it wrong.

Planning before you write so that it's easy to write and readers love it

The next place writers tend to get stuck is on creating a reading experience for their readers that keeps them turning pages.

How do you do that? A few things:

  • High-value-to-page content so that your readers don’t complain about fluff, but still get the opportunity to know, like, and trust you through story.
  • Create waypoints along the way that anchor the reader so that they keep turning pages 
  • Making the reader feel like the Heroine, so that he or she knows they’re supported, knows they can do what you’re teaching, and knows they want more from you

With the Book Map™, you’ll find my expert guidance and create a memorable, life-changing reading experience for your reader before you write the first word!

Penning your very own world-changing book without tearing your hair out

Once you’ve done steps 1 and 2, writing the book itself becomes almost as easy as paint-by-numbers. Even if you’re not a writer!

Want to write faster? You got it.

Want to create a ritual around your writing that makes it more fun? You got it.

Want to build your launch team with hungry, devoted readers? You got it.

With the Book Map™, you’re guided from start to finish by an expert book coach in a set of easy-to-digest and easy-to-implement video lessons.

You're going to go on a journey from messy idea to life-changing author, and you're going to love it.

“I had hit a writing wall with edits before I used Holly’s Book Map for book outlines on Airtable, and once I started plugging my book into it, the wall dissolved and I was able to tackle my edits with no problem! The Book Map has examples already loaded onto it, like character arcs, plot points, etc, and the software is extremely user friendly and has tons of cool features to help bring your book to life! I will definitely be recommending this Book Map to all my writer friends!”

You can write a book the hard way... or the Book Map™ way.

Picture yourself never having 20 different journals full of ideas, citations, mindmaps, step-by-step processes, and weird half-finished ideas you had in the middle of the night for your book ever again.

All of those Word docs, Google docs, Scrivener files, and scattered notes in your phone, emails to yourself, handwritten journals, sticky notes, and incomprehensible scribbles on the back of receipts next to your bed… you don’t need ’em anymore.

Because we’re going to create a single, beautiful, place for you to write your book from.

A one-stop-shop that gently guides you to writing a life-changing book.

A book that's practically guaranteed to get readers turning pages & beating down your door to work with you.

And it’s going to make it SO EASY to write a book that readers can’t put down!

It beautifully organizes & gives you a step-by-step framework to write your book.

All of these ⬆️? You’ll have them delightfully organized in no time flat, and you’ll never feel overwhelmed trying to plan and write your book again.

You've got a life-changing book in you that needs to be written. By you.

Hello, I'm Holly

I'm a Book Coach for World-Changers. If you’re going to change the world with your book, I can help you do it.

I believe that books change lives, starting with your own while you’re writing it. And I also believe that books are THE most important invention since fire.

So putting your work into one is the smartest thing you can do for your business and your legacy.

But only if you do it right.

I’ve worked with over 100 authors to help them write and publish their books, even when they thought they “weren’t writers”.

Holly Ostrout is a book coach with a vision of changing the world one book at a time, by teaching big-idea entrepreneurs, coaches, speakers, and authors to create a book in a gentler, more effective way. A way that takes both you and your reader on a profound journey.

I’ve figured out how to consistently write unputdownable, life-changing books with a few indispensable secrets:

  1. Creating a Heroine’s Journey for your reader
  2. Applying Purpose Points to delightful effect
  3. Using this very same Book Map™ to plan and write

And guess what? The Book Map™ guides you through #1 and #2. 😘

I use The Book Map™ with my 1-1 clients, too, and grabbing the DIY version is the next best thing to working personally with me if you want to get your book written this year (and write it right).

This Book Map makes it 100 times easier to keep track of every aspect of my story, and I always know what I need to write next!”

YES! If you’re ready to write a book, the Book Map™ will guide you from choosing the right topic and angle for a book readers will love and that will align perfectly with your business offers—all the way to writing the book, even if you’re “not a writer.”

Absolutely. And if any updates are made to the Book Mapping™ course or the Book Map™ itself, you will receive those updates automatically.

The Book Map™ is a DIY version of what I do with my coaching clients and does not come with personal support. If you wonder if you’d be better served by private or group coaching, let’s have a conversation so you can get more information to make the right decision for you.

Good thing you get email support from yours truly! I’m here to answer any questions you have about implementing the template and help you move forward if you get stuck. But don’t worry. There are comprehensive video guides and demos to get you setup with your Book Map™ and I feel confident you’ll be able to soar through it!

You want the fiction version, available on my other site. Click here to check it out.

Yes. If the Book Map doesn’t work for you, you can request a refund within 14 days of purchase. I will ask you to share with me how you tried to implement the Book Mapping™ course and the Book Map™ itself, and what didn’t work for you, though. This is to maintain integrity for all of us, so I can improve The Book Map™ with your feedback and so that you actually give it a try first. This is a requirement for any refund request.

I would love to answer them. Email me.

As with any personal growth program your results with The Book Map™ may vary from these consumer testimonials. Your results will be based on variables such as your level of effort, personal qualities, knowledge, skills, and a host of other factors. Since these factors differ for each individual, Books & Alchemy cannot guarantee your success or results, nor is Books & Alchemy responsible for your success or failure. The Book Map™ is not a “magic bullet” for writing your book. It takes effort and dedication. Books & Alchemy provides you with a blueprint to write your book and these students agree.
