Are you somebody with stories to tell and things to say? Do you know you have a book “inside” you, but you don’t know the first thing about how to write one?
Writing a book will change you. A book can help you build a business, heal your past, even locate your true purpose and best self.
The truth is that writing a book can transform your life. Experience a new world of possibilities as an author. Writing Coach Brad Wetzler will show you how to write a book, create a compelling book proposal to get published—or self publish. Discover how his award-winning book writing courses, editing services, and expert advice can bring your book to life. Experience a new world of possibilities as a published author.
“For years I’ve wanted to tell the story of my life. I have lots of bits and pieces, have started many times but became distracted and failed to progress. Brad Wetzler has helped me outline my project, encouraged me when I felt discouraged, motivated me when I was lacking focus, and pushed me to tell interesting stories rather than just list boring details. If you too want to write but can’t seem to get started or have started but aren’t making progress, I would urge you to hire Brad to assist you. You will not regret it.”
--Paul Jones, Shawnee Mission, Kansas
Why A Book Writing Coach
A book writing coach is different from a writing coach or editor. A writing coach focuses on all kinds of writing, as well as writing habits to help you be productive. An editor provides feedback and guidance on your writing. A book writing coach like Brad Wetzler will:
- Guide you to writing a nonfiction book (especially memoir, self-help, how-to, business and more)
- Help you break through any writing blocks
- Help you develop the habits of a productive writer who starts and finishes their work!
- Guide you in writing a book proposal to attract a publisher, as well as edit the proposal and, when appropriate, contact agents or publishers on your behalf
- Help you make decisions when you get an offer from more than one publisher (or more than one agent).
- Evaluate your “author platform,” brainstorm ideas to grow it to the point it meets publishers’ and agents’ requirements
- Aid you in creating a platform building strategy that’s authentic to you and enjoyable to develop
- Refer you to colleagues who can help you with specific aspects of platform building.
- Refer you to designers and Amazon marketing experts if you wish to self-publish
In the case of a book that is not in Brad’s genre, he can refer you to colleagues who are book writing coaches, editors, and publishing experts with expertise in children’s books, novels, cookbooks, and more.
“As my writing teacher and coach, Brad Wetzler helped me tremendously. He knows how to ask the key questions that a writer of memoir and personal essay must ask themselves on the page. He challenged me in a major way. I value his insightful, nurturing one-on-one approach to coaching.”
--Amanda McCracken, Boulder, Colorado

“A few years ago I was referred to Brad when I started editing my memoir and I had no idea what I was doing. Brad took the mystery out of book writing and broke things down for me step by step and tailored his mentorship to my writing needs. He challenged me to get to the root of my emotions so that I could engage my readers authentically. He made me do the emotional work! He consistently asked me the right questions at the right time so that I could unclutter my narrative. It was like book therapy! I’m happy to tell you that Brad’s work with me paid off! Just a few months into moving to New York City to option my book I picked up a book deal! If it weren’t for Brad I would’ve been stuck on my storyline, unable to break my story free! Pick it up this fall and check for Brad’s name in the acknowledgments! He’s the real deal!”-Mimi Hayes, Author of “I’ll Be Ok, It’s Just a Hole in My Head” (Animal Media Group, 2018)
