After eleven book proposals, being sought out by multiple agents and publishers, and seven years of trying to get my book written, I met Holly. Holly’s system virtually ensures that you will not only get your book done, but that it will be done in a way that captivates your reader, agents, and publishers. 

As sure as my hair is red, you’ll save yourself time, headaches, frustration, and you’ll get it done right the first time. She’s worth every single penny.

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.

Working with Holly was amazing on so many levels. She not only helped me to understand the more formal process and way of formulating my book, which actually allowed for more creativity and freedom when writing because I am not as concerned with what goes where and when, but she also helped me to identify paths forward I hadn’t thought of. I am now able to write with confidence, which I am forever grateful for. Holly has a way of making you feel valued, understood, heard, and important – you aren’t just a project to her. She sees the creative heart that you are and is there to help you grow.

Holly was extremely helpful and has wonderful advice. Her online class on the bookmap is easy to follow and a great tool. She helped me a lot getting my plot structured, something I always struggle with.

Working with Holly was a game changer for me. I knew I wanted to write a book, but Holly gave me all the pieces to make that possible – including the confidence that I could really do it. We worked together to fill out a book map, and she helped me work through some of the stickier parts of plot and character motivations. Holly made my dream of writing a book feel more and more like reality every time we met. She’s responsive, creative, and so wise in what it takes to make sure a book is compelling to readers. Holly is truly a blessing for aspiring writers and I’m so happy we were introduced. Thank you!!
