Hey, World-Maker, want to turn your imagination into a page-turning book?

With Imagination Ink., you don't just write a book — you create a new world to immerse countless readers in. Create new worlds and change your own, starting today.

You have the cool ideas and mental snapshots of exciting scenes... but turning them into a compelling book?

That’s where many authors get stuck. Hi, I’m Holly.

I work with authors around the world to turn their messy, magical ideas into #booktok worthy masterpieces, but if hiring a personal book coach isn’t yet in your budget, I have created the perfect tool to help you write that book this year.

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.

Imagination Ink. is designed for self-publishing authors to get past the most common roadblocks authors face:

  • 🧐 Stuck Looking for the Starting Line?Forget the finish line; where do you even begin? You know you have a the next Fourth Wing in you, but that vast landscape of other worlds you’ve been building feels impossible to distill into—ya know—a story.
  • 🥴 Tangled up in a Big Idea?The more you think about it, the more your idea feels too monumental to tackle, making it impossible to untangle into a structured, digestible format that readers will actually like. How do you break down something so complex into chapters, characters, worlds, and plots that grab your reader by the hand and pull them along on this epic adventure you’ve imagined?
  • 🤠 In a Wild West Standoff with Google Docs?There it is: the blank screen that’s supposed to be covered in print-perfect, quotable sentences from you, but instead is just staring back at you, expressionless, like a bored cowboy chewing a wheat straw. All those hours slip by, like the same cowboy moseying over the prairie, the screen’s just as white and glaring and empty as when you started. It’s not for lack of ideas (because you’ve got tons!) but for finding the right way to create this book and just get started.
  • 😳 Being Creeped on by Doubt & Imposter Syndrome?It’s normal (and so very common) to start questioning everything you know when you’re faced with actually writing a novel. Questions like, “Is my idea even worth writing?”, “Will anyone ever want to read this?”, or “Who am I to try writing about this when I don’t have a MFA / publishing credits / potential readers?” start creeping in like unwanted DMs. And they’re just as persistent. But it’s not about a lack of skill; it’s about translating your beautifully messy idea into your masterpiece.

Have you felt any of those?

It's not just you. 

But what if there was a way to streamline your book-writing process, and turn all those daunting doubts into "Damn it, I'm DOING THIS!"?

Imagine having a weekly guide that not only illuminates your path, but also walks you through it.

Step by step, transforming all that doubt into confidence and all those ideas into imaginative new worlds.

Hey, I'm Holly

I'm a Book Coach for World-Builders & 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 taking the time to create your own world that future readers can escape to is literally changing this real world we live in.

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 the right Plot Points to delightful effect (easy!)
  3. Creating and giving them the same Book Map™ I use for my own books
Holly Amber Webb, Author

Completely unblocked!

“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!”

— Holly Amber Webb, Author

Crazy Deep Knowledge​

“I knew when I decided that it was time to start writing my book that Holly was the person to turn to. Her cheerfulness, easy vibe, and, most importantly, her crazy deep knowledge of planning and writing books hits the trifecta. I highly recommend working with Holly… You WILL NOT be disappointed!”

— Amanda Fletcher, Writer​

100x Easier to Keep Track of Everything​

“Holly’s Book Map is the tool for writers. It’s convenient and customizable, with endless options that you can adjust based on your story’s needs. Before this, I was doing my plotting with pen and paper, and when trying to keep track of all the story beats and subplots I always felt like I was forgetting something. 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!”

— Jennifer Rivers, Author, Educator, & Book Person
Amanda Dzimianski

A Masterclass in the Art of Storytelling​

“If you are a story-weaver, this Book Map is your loom. This author-created roadmap to writing your book is the perfect tool for those of us who want to visually organize and track a book’s story arc, character development, and metadata. It also provides a masterclass in the art of storytelling. A brilliant solution for the overwhelmed novelist.”

— Amanda Dzimianski, Editor, Poet + Author, Writing Coach​
John Hulbert, Author of Yeshua

Beyond My Expectation​

“I was so fortunate to have Holly get my book out into the publishing world. As a self published author, I needed help and she went beyond my expectation. I can’t wait to work with Holly again on my next book.”

— John Hulbert, Author of Yeshua and Journey to Love​
Dr. Andy Erlich, Author of The Long Shadows: The Story of Jake Erlich

Highly Recommended!​

“I worked with Holly to publish my book, The Long Shadows: The Story of Jake Erlich, and
afterwards, we worked together to build an entire website for my business and the book. I’d highly recommend working with Holly for your author needs.”

— Dr. Andy Erlich, Author of The Long Shadows: The Story of Jake Erlich​
